I would like to introduce Jacinta. This girl has an amazing edgy sense of style and one of the most unique looks I've seen. She has the kind of hair I wish I could pull off and can even get away with wearing leopard print and acid wash in a single outfit. You guys should definitely check her blog out here.

To get to know her a little better I've asked her a few quick questions:

1) Name, Age, Location, Profession?

My name is Jacinta Cheng, I'm a 26 year old interior designer and I'm from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.



2) What are your 5 wardrobe basics?

- a pair of Havaianas (coming from a country that is hot all year round that would be necessary)

-a vintage rock tee

-black AA leggings

-Erin Wasson RVCA inspired singlet

-and a pair of high waisted washed denim skinny jeans


3) If you could have any foreign accent what would it be?

(That must be the most original question!) A northern English accent I would say. I love their slang, it's adorable!


4) How do you do your hair?

haha! Well, I'm thankful that I have friends who are hairstylists and it all began when one of them decided to open a salon and use me as a model for his portfolio. The blonde mop was inspired by the great Andy Warhol. When I agreed to it I told myself that I'm going to wear it for a week and dye it back to black, but I fell in love with it so much so that I kept it short and colored till today! In between, I try my best to evolve and take inspiration from people like Agyness Deyn, Vivien Westwood (hair color), to Russian designer Vika Gazinskaya. I'm honestly running out of ideas by now, so do hit me if there are any suggestions! lol!
