ASOS jumpsuit with tie waist

Here we observe the chinoise in her natural habitat: Chinatown.

Just joking, obviously. My natural habitat is in Zara or bed... or in bed browsing the Zara website. I actually couldn't feel more out of place when I go to Chinatown. Too many squinty eyes staring me down as I walk past them. Rude! FYI Chinese people wouldn't know subtlely if it hit them on the head with a mahoosive crispy duck.

Jumpsuit with tie waist - ASOS || Blazer, bag, shoes - Zara

So I ordered this jumpsuit the other day in another 'bite-the-bullet-throw-caution-to-the-wind' impulse shop. I really wasn't sure if it would suit me so it was a very risky purchase. But this is how I get my thrills!!! Sod the sky-diving or bungee jumping. Thankfully, I love it, even if I do bring out a ninja vibe more than a cool, modern vibe. It must be the Asian in me.

Actually, I felt a bit masculine it in once I put on the blazer. Kind of like a man in a tux, I dunno. Or a fancy plumber, if you will. I'll be the first to say that it does look really good with heels, but since I was just going for dinner and it was busy Central London after all, flats were the obvious choice.

The eagle-eyed of you will notice that that is indeed the same bag I've been recently sporting (here and here) but in pink. I couldn't help it! It's the sweetest shade of dusty pastel pink and it doesn't hurt that it's real leather (for £26 as well - bargain!). This'll definitely be my go-to bag for Summer.

Today I'm off to the British Museum! Something to do isn't it? Might take some photos to blog! Fact about me: I used to have a recurring nightmare that there was a mummy (Egyptian kind) in my living room and it would chase me zombie-style :( Any dream experts know what this means?!


  1. You look good ninja Jade :P and you do look
    modern and classy!! Haha I laughed about your
    'true' natural habitat :') wahhh, you have that
    as well, that our fellow yellow peeps staring at you?
    Like why, really huh? :P Xx

  2. Lady you crack me up! That intro was perfect. Anyway, so is that jumpsuit -- you should throw caution to the wind every single time you shop! Seems like the perfect versatile piece, dressed up, down, spring with a blazer, summer without. Been meaning to acquire the perfect jumpsuit this season... i might just turn to asos!

    And totally agree: you needed that bag in pink too.

  3. I get those stares too Jade!!! It's like they KNOW we're BBCs just by looking at us. Worse thing is in a Chinese restaurant me and my cousins have to order in a mixture of Chinese and English because none of our Chinese is proficient enough to order everything in Chinese haha. We get so judged.

    That jumpsuit looks gorgeous on you - very sophisticated! And I am defo getting that bag... as soon as my exams are over and I start shopping again!

  4. hahahhahaahaha yes, us chinese people are so rude to each other. I love chinatown though!
    I need to buy more blazers

  5. Love the jumpsuit! It looks so good on you!

    And I totally know how you feel. When I visit my mom in Indo and we go to the market, it's like everyone somehow knows that I am not full Balinese or something because everyone stares at me and it's the most uncomfortable thing ever.... I don't even look that different from everyone I don't understand how they know?????


  6. love the jumpsuit you look stunning in it, great buy ;)

    xx Vivi

  8. OMG! I never met a jumpsuit I thought I could pull off but this one makes me want to try. You look seriously super cute! Love it!
