Draw That String

ChinnyPea says:
"Love this jacket! Grey = Yay! Slightly structural = Yay! = the old Lee Lin.

I keep seeing this imaginary (or not!) drawstring around the collar that I want to pull. Just to see how far I can take those folds. Tee hee hee."

ChinnyEm says: "Careful ChinnyPea, you'll choke her! ...But I want to have a go after you too mmkay? You know I wish I could do this with half of my jackets. It would be such a boredem/outfit rut buster."

Lee Lin For Prime Minister!

ChinnyEm says:
"Ooh, is this a tulle bow I see? Genius! And another double lapel blazer? Does that mean this one is reversible too (like your pink and grey one)? Glad you're not wearing a boring black blazer. Grey saves the day!"

ChinnyPea says:
"Tee hee hee. Your wardrobe mistress at SBS is back on his/her D-I-Y improvisation kick!
Love the grey and the huge lapels but not sure about the black tulle underlay."

ChinnyPea says:
"Kind of 'medieval' are those sleeves, aren't they? And done in that velvety fabric just adds more to the Middle Ages knights-at-the-round-table feel. ✔✔✔✔✔!"

"Optical Illusion Ruffles Lump Things"

ChinnyPea says:
"That's what ChinnyEm texted me when the news (and you!) came on this evening. Haha! I think she meant the bustiere-like details on your boobs. We'll let her elaborate further below.

You know I don't like black but white polka-dots on black is so classic-y (ChinnyEm and I were wondering if it is a Comme des Garcons number) that I can't fault you for wearing black again, albeit a new-to-us piece. And I do love dotty things!"

ChinnyEm says: "From afar this is probably a boring shirt but as soon as you shifted in your seat a little I saw the brilliance of it! I was seriously playing tricks with my eyes and I was trying to figure out just what it on your chest. At first I thought they were protruding ruffles but ChinnyPea is right, it's a bustier. You know the best thing about this top? It confuses me (that's such a Comme thing...this is Comme right?). Which means I LOVE IT! And if I scroll the page up and down quickly, it looks as if the dots are blinking. Hehehehe."

No "Saturday" This Week

ChinnyPea says:
"Oh, Lee Lin, can you please get the SBS tech crew to get their act together?! First was the crappy colour registration on the website that caused your outfits to lose their true colours. Now, they've forgotten to upload Saturday's evening news on the site! We haven't got an image for yesterday's post! How GRRRRRR-some!

Good thing you're wearing such calming colours today! Really helped soothe my nerves. And you know how much I love a non-colour colour outfit! That lacy Peter Pan it a add-on? Looks like it. I love those clip-on collars. I collect them. And way before the Miu Miu kitty/naked ladies collar craze. Would you like to borrow my vintage ones some time?"

ChinnyEm says: "Wow you look almost like a porcelain doll. This would be awesome with a big frilly skirt, are you wearing one underneath? I've been a seriously bad Chinny worshiper lately. Haven't caught you on the news or been prompt with commentating. Again, 3 cheers for ChinnyPea for being a good worshiper"

Slinky Puffa Weekend

ChinnyPea says:
"This is hilarious!

I referenced this grey jacket in yesterday's post and here you are wearing it today! Tee hee hee!

Love it when you do themed weekends, whether intentional or not."

ChinnyEm says: "Massive thanks to ChinnyPea for holding the ChinnyStyle fort while my head was buried in exam revision.
The fluffy pillow jacket with another bit of fluff at the collar! So lovely. Can I bear hug you?
Last time you teamed this jacket with a bare neck (ooh la la) but this time it's all business in one of your trusty stiff collared shirts. I think your white/black collared shirts have seriously been underrated by myself on this blog. I've come to the realisation how much va voom a plain shirt can add especially when you wear a less structured jacket.
I'm so glad to be back Chinster. I've missed you!"

Purple Reign

ChinnyPea says:
"Woo! A new never-been-seen jacket! Like that grey one, I love how it's puffa-like but in a blazer cut instead of the usual Michelin Man blouson-style. Must be so shnuggly!

Vertical stripes! Yeah! PLUS the twisted stripes around your neck! What can I say, Lee Lin, but that I love them all!"

ChinnyEm says: "I think this was the only day during my study period that I managed to catch an outfit of yours. Is that striped rope part of the jacket? It looks more like a necklace that's attached to the top inside. Or is it one of those all in one jackets that come with a non detachable top inside? I'm asking such irrelevant questions. To be honest, I didn't quite like this jacket, as snuggly as it looks. Maybe too mature for my tastes. I like it when you live on the edge. Haha."
