Wenlan Chia, Twinkle
Fall inspiration: "The songs are melancholy and happy at the same time. I find that a tinge of sadness adds depth to clothes that are otherwise just pretty. I guess I am always a bit moodier in the fall!"
Playlist: "Let's Get Out of This Country" by Camera Obscura; "A Window" by The Radio Dept.
