Here's my DearPostman Top 5 of 2018 for Clothing and Shoes (Bags and Accessories coming up in the next post)! I am sorry if this post is too long but I really can't cut it down anymore. And also because I did not do one last year, the following lists might include purchases from late 2017. From daily practical basic to first hands-on to collection pieces, I hope you all find some inspirations / insights in them!
From cocktail hours to NYE, let's not let the fun times end! For the past few seasons, glittery / gold might have been considered as outdated, old, tacky, whatever. However, this year, all-out sequin items have definitely come back loud. Who said glitters and sparkles are exclusive to NYE? No way! Be as glittery and shiny as you want anytime anywhere and outshine that city lights at London Eye, Big Apple or Sydney Harbour Bridge (depending where you are). 2019, go home or go GLAM.
To be completely honest, for this 24-year-old me right now, it's indeed a very tricky question. Yeh, normally, or at least for the past few years, I will have known exactly what I want, where I am heading to, how I am gonna achieve it, whatever. However, right now, I just don't know. My life's usually laid out with plans of specific time frames and then I just walk through it one by one. But now, 3 years of law school, followed by another year of PCLL, and then getting qualified in Sept 2019. And, what's next?
The problem about Secret Santa is that you might not know that person very well, or he/she might be the opposite sex, or sometimes it's a lucky draw situation. You just don’t know what to get. To avoid any embarrassing situation, for the 2018 Christmas Gift Guide, we are not doing a HIM or HER, but a Secret Santa Gift Guide for all price ranges! What about that? (Read more…)
Good or bad, 2018 will now soon come to an end, and good times is coming. Before you officially wave goodbye, here's my 12 simple habits in life that always make my day (and hopefully yours after you read this). Look pretty, Live pretty and, most importantly, Feel pretty with the Postman!

If you ask me what I think is the most signature London element, no doubt I would say red socks and checks. All kinds of checks. Honestly I can't say much more about red socks, because even I can't explain why I find them really iconic and London-ish. But for checks, especially those brown / tartan / glen plaid kinda checks, they just make me feel very London. I mean Burberry has it, Gieves & Hawkes has it, Liberty has it, and Vivienne Westwood, the Queen of tartan. Every time I put on some checks in London, I just feel extra smart and put together that day.

Before we properly enter the countdown month to Christmas, we should also properly dress up for November. For me, nothing’s more appropriate than wearing all shades of earth tone during this month of the year. I was once called Miss Oatmeal by different people because of the colour tone I always wear / choose. I almost don’t realise every time I pick up something in a shop, it will be of some shade of oatmeal colour - white, nude, beige, brown. Almost 90% white actually - the “bakshutshut” colour. And it’s true, I love whites and browns. (Read more…)
It's almost certain that when people talk about suits, they would be thinking about black & white, or grey, or navy, or the furthest will be checkered. Even so, they would still be thinking about classic shirts, and heels. Today, following from Power Suit 1, DearPostman will be showing you more colours and combinations one can create with suits.
Come on now. （Read more…)
As I recall, last time during the Happy 3rd to Dear Postman: Q&A, one of you asked me about the transformation of my fashion style (full lookbook here). I have to say that's my favourite question (and also a very tricky question) and I did spend some time looking back at my pictures to find out the answer (also to realise I used to be chubbier). There's this one item or one style that I’ve been loving more and more over the years, and pretty much my go-to whenever there's a special event or meeting, or even when there’s nothing special honestly.
And that is…
