Crystal Skies


Lately I have been finding myself gravitating towards a more minimalistic styling and baggier silhouettes. I have never been very interested in minimalistic looks but ever since my discovery of House of Sunny I have seen the beauty in this style and have had fun experimenting with it. I truly feel that with fashion, it’s all about the freedom to experiment with different styles and assuming a different role for the day. The bravest thing for me to have done recently is to wear less platformed shoes! The reason being that I find I am comfortable with almost everything about myself except for the one aspect, my height. I am 162cm (5’4″) and I get so self conscious with my height that I refuse to go out without wearing platforms to elevate myself. But then I realised that there’s nothing wrong with being small! And It’s actually good practice for me (and everyone!) to really embrace every aspect of ourselves for what we perceive as ‘flaws’ in ourselves are not necessarily ‘flaws’ but just another part of who we are. So for all petite girls out there, let’s all embrace our height and try to have at least one ‘short day’ every week!

  1. You do minimalism so well and so beautifully! ❤ I think you carry yourself very confidently and that makes you look taller! Hehe at least in photos- I would have guessed you were 5'6" or 5'7" 🙂 But you're totally right- nothing wrong with being short! Being petite is awesome!

    • Aw thank you! And that’s awesome that you thought I was 5’6″-5’7″! I always thought that I looked extremely short! So thank you lovely for the confidence booster ❤

  2. I love how you went out of your comfort zone and decided to style this outfit without platforms. Btw, I completely understand about the height factor (I’m 5’1)! On another note, this outfit is amazing! I really love how you styled this look, especially with your top knot hair style <3. Can't wait to read more!
