5 Things I want

1. An outrageous skirt


2. A wide brim hat - black or taupe


3. A mini handbag (preferably the one pictured below)


4. A sweater with knitted details


5. Her legs


I have been really busy with school so I haven't had any chances to post (or even take) new photos! But I definitely will have sometime during reading break - which is coming up pretty soon! So please stick around cutheties!

Have a great weekend!

P.S. I turned 21 almost 2 weekends ago! I am now legal everywhere! ;)

Black Out




The grass is always greener on the other side. 


I wore this outfit to Richmond night market. Don't ask me what I did there, because all I did was eat a ton of twirly potato snacks (as seen below), and then eat some more. Say hi to the one who has been helping me with my pictures, Jeremy aka my brother! Oh, and check out his thought-inducing t-shirt. #sodeepbro





Zara dress, Urban Outfitters cross-body satchel, Forever 21 booties, Bracelets/Cuffs from Bangkok.



It is the time of the year to dig out all your booties (or buy new ones). I sincerely hope we (in Victoria) won't be getting as much rain as we did last year. I would cry for a dry winter. Throw in some snow though, I love snow.

Here's a glimpse of my favorite black dress. It is a super versatile piece, and among all the clothes I have, I get the most wears out of this dress. You'll definitely be seeing it again in the near future.

On a completely irrelevant note, you'll soon notice that I love (a huge understatement) street brands, and am almost always in street brands. Hence the hashtag: #streetbrandwhore on my ootd pictures on Instagram

I plan to have a #flatlaysfriday section on the blog, and hopefully that will work out well. Do leave any constructive criticisms you have regarding the blog in the comment box! Have a pleasant week ahead guys!

Sandals, where you at?



The perfect outfit to laze in - Bart sweater and the ever popular asymmetrical skort! Put on a pair of clear strapped sandals and the outfit was good to go. 



Zara skort, BCBG clutch, Forever 21 clear strapped sandals



Just walking - quite comically. 

The month is slowly becoming extremely hectic with all my assignments coming in. Following the submission of my assignments my midterms are coming up soon, too soon. I'm stretched to the bone, but I would love to have my GPA up a few notches, so I have to work for it, no complaints. #wishmeluck

Don't forget to hype+fan me on lookbook!

Mismatched





BCBG clutch, top and skirt from Bangkok, Zara heels


This outfit was extremely quickly put together, hence the mismatched colors and prints. I especially love this top that I got from Bangkok at $5 (SUCH A STEAL!!!). The mismatched colors were very suitable for summer, or the end of summer rather. 

Now that fall is slowly creeping in, it is getting colder each day. I'm not exactly sure if I am hoping for fall... I mean, I do LOVE sweaters and piling on lots of clothes, but wind and rain is all we get here in Victoria. I do think that ultimately I am looking forward to the cold weather though! So here's to all those looking forward to fall! 

Hype me on Lookbook:


Thank you for visiting this humble space! I hope that in future I will be posting fairly regularly :) See you folks in the next post!

Grand Canyon




Extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon. Although the weather was colder than what we expected it to be, it was still a very enjoyable trip and extremely eye-opening. Nature has its own amazing way around creations as such, with time molding the Grand Canyon into what it is today. 





Wearing: Disneyland Buzz Lightyear t-shirt; Topman Limited Bird Jean Shirt; Free People Shorts, Timberland Boat shoes; Zara Handbag




Casual outfit for a not-so-casual day of visiting one of the world's seven wonders. The Buzz Lightyear T-shirt was apparently too cute to stop me from buying it even if it only came in boy sizes. Bought a size L which seems to be just right! Did I mention how comfortable my shoes were??? However, they got really dusty while we visited the Grand Canyon. But it's nothing a wet wipe can't fix! 

I will definitely return, Grand Canyon. With my boyfriend, or my friends, or my family. And on the second trip, I am sure it will be equally worthwhile.

First

Hello everybody!

The blog is finally done, after quite a long while! Welcome to cutheties!

I got really inspired a while ago, and decided that I wanted to start up a fashion, food, and travel blog/diary. While it was not a difficult choice to make (I wanted to do this, particularly because of some fashion bloggers whom I love - lusttforlife, paledivision, jesslovesfred), I think it might be a difficult decision to keep. I will definitely do my best to keep this space running as regularly as possible.

I wanted a blog I would really commit to, something drastically different from my previous blog (which I did not delete and might still post at), mynameiscand. Mynameiscand is more like a lifestyle blog, where I talk (and whine) about everything, from food to my inspirations to my holidays etc. Basically, it was a space where I talked about anything I wanted to talk about.

Cutheties is going to be much more focused than mynameiscand. I intend for the blog to be fashion oriented, focusing on lookbook posts, my inspirations, favorite items of the month, etc. However, since I do love travel and I do love food, I will also be blogging about my travels as well as my food, but more minimally.

Where did the name cutheties come from, and what does it mean? It is actually part of a lyric from a song - If You See Kay, by an Irish band, The Script.

"She said that she was born to leave this town behind 
Knew the truth but still she looked me in the eyes and lied 
Saying it's time to cut the ties
Time to say goodbye, so she left
But she never never left my, never never left my mind"

It doesn't have any particular meaning to me, I just really liked it after coming across that phrases, and it kind of stuck with me after that. It is my current username for my  twitter, instagram, lookbook, etc. Also, I eliminated the extra 't' so instead of cuttheties, I decided on cutheties, because I thought it looked better with a single 't'.

I just finished introducing my blog, but I haven't quite introduced myself. So, hi! I am Candice Chin, a 20 (21 in October 2013) year old Singaporean. I am currently majoring in Economics at the University of Victoria in Victoria, BC, Canada. Sometimes, just sometimes, I wish I were studying in Vancouver (a ferry ride away from Victoria) instead. I was born in Indonesia, but was 100% bred in Singapore, where I will always call home. I love fashion, food, and traveling (if you don't already know). My favorite colors are yellow and turquoise. I do not fancy the color pink. I have a big shopping problem - especially when it comes to shoes and bags. Would like a cotton candy machine. Am a major idiot when it comes to directions (thank goodness for google maps and GPS). I am very grateful and appreciative for my family, boyfriend, and friends. My goal in life is to be a traveller, and to find a career that I would enjoy.

My first post introducing the blog was extremely long, thank you for sticking around and reading it. The next post will be more pictures and less talking, promise! I hope you like the blog so far and will be back soon!
