The Eye: How do you feel about repeating outfits, is it a do or a don’t?
Yuen: I’m on the fence about this one…I try as hard as I can to mix and match outfits so I don’t wear the exact same thing twice, but I think if you have an absolute favourite combination or go-to look, go for it!
The Eye: Do you have any tips on how to remix a look,?
Yuen: Layers! Either put on a scarf, a cardigan, blazer or leather jacket as all of them produces different results - from casual to edgy. Another thing I like doing is turning a dress into a skirt by wearing a different top, or making the dress a top by pairing it with different bottoms.
The Eye: What would you tell someone who wants to thrift shop, but feels enormously overwhelmed?
Yuen: Thrift shopping is the best thing ever. You get either unique pieces or really low prices! Sometimes even both if you’re lucky! I think the best thing to do is to take your time and go through the racks. There’s no point rushing cause you may miss a hidden gem!
The Eye: What do you consider a mandatory piece to someone’s closet?
Yuen: Hmm…this is a tough one…I would say a good pair of jeans. There are endless possibilities with them and they can go with everything! You can dress them up with heels and a blazer, or down with flats and a slouchy tee.
The Eye: Where are the best places to look for discounts and bargains?
Yuen: Definitely online. Stores online often have various sales and promotions going on that you may not get in physical stores! It’s also easier to browse through what you want in the comfort of your own home without having to queue or fight for that last item.
The Eye: Where can we see more of you?
Yuen: I blog over at http://thecraziestparadigm.blogspot.com and have various social media sites:
