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.

At first sight

I was a non-believer of thrift shopping. As much as I'd like to believe that thrift shopping offers great item pieces at a very low prices, I'm just not convinced with the whole idea. Its unwanted and I'm paying a random stranger's worn unwated clothes.  What you pay is what you get. If I'm paying RM180 bucks for a brand new dress(approximately USD 50), I'm also paying for the latest trend  and excellent quality material.  It's a fair trade.

Until one day, I came across a bazaar held in a mall and look around to see what they've got. As I thought of leaving few quick look, I stop to check out one last rack and came across this vintage number. The classic cut, bronze coloured buttons, and light grey and white stripes is one of the most fare and timeless basic I've seen so far. Believe it or not, it only cost me a freaking RM12. I'll be a total idiot if I dont get it.
Since then, I've converted.

Star dust

My style evolve each year. There were a lot of hits and misses since I started out. And sadly, complicating the simple stuff is what I do best. Much like letting go after holding your breath for too long, I perform awhole lot better once I learnt to loosen up.

The same applies when I pose for blog photos. Do you find it hard to pose for the camera smiling, or at least intentionally or pretentiously smile? I look cheesy in my opinion. With minimal effort, here I am, candidly smile at the camera with a star printed number and a slouchy folded up jeans. It felt relaxed and put together once I buckled it up with a belt.

I decided to bust out my massimo flat. The shoe god has spoken, just when I thought I'd never find the perfect flat. I saw it sitting prettily on the shelf. I tried it on and next thing I know, it's sitting on my shoe rack now as we speak.

Ok, enough rambling. Bye!
