Gypsy

In search for the basic denim shirt, I bought this at K- Styleme thinking that it will fit me perfectly. Boy, was I wrong? I misjudged the fitting through the photos on site(common mistakes when online shopping), turns out better as a layering device.  And this is what I came out with. As you can see, the denim shirt added some roughness on this otherwise demure look.

Turn it around

Have you ever felt like you have nothing to wear? I know I do- half the time. Truth is, it's never enough. There is always something better and nicer out there. Now, here I am writing as if I'm giving my two cents on frugal spending for #fashionista. Yes, I was teased by my lovely colleagues hastaging "fashionista". It was #fashionblogger and many more I was guilty of. 

As much as I want to be one of the Miroslova Duma or Chiara Ferragni, I could only be a fashionista at heart. And I guess, that's what makes bloggers stood out in the first place- we/they start of with a budget like real people, improvised each pieces they have afford and throw themselves out there even if they are due for their next assignment. 

If there is one thing I enjoy about improvising, by tying a knot on an oversized top can cinch the waist and create a form of silhouette. And, the sheer white fabric on the other side of the top create a flowy feel underneath my faux leather jacket. To cool it off, I put on my silver necklace which ties everything together.

Oldie but goodie

I don't really know what to make out of this photos. As the results happen to turn out better with the age old black and white filter,  I decided to roll with it.

Denim has been an essential, seems to ubiquitously appeared in every stores and sartorial photos I came across. Since winter is here and Christmas is coming near us, it's time to go darker.

It surprises me how things happens to turn out well when it's unplanned. Intuitively, I took out my trusty Uniqlo denim shirt and paired it with my printed pre-loved skirt rather than the usual denim on denim. There you have it the 60's school girl vibe with an edgy modernized twist. I supposed.
