It has become a routine.
I always shop more post-CNY, in the first half of the year.
I blame Zara's Spring/Summer goodies
and everything floral and printed out there.
Have been kept busy at work looking for
new designs (especially rompers cos of sneaky personal preferences, haha)
a new office space,
lookbook venues and everything else.
Hence, when the going gets tough,
the tough goes shopping.
Some of my recent buys the past few weeks
(plus I have at least another 6 more new outfits unworn,
tags in place, lying somewhere in their paper bags still.
First up, what I wore to The Line buffet dinner.
Dressing for a buffet is always tricky.
Nothing tight, no belts, no long maxis.
I find slightly loose shorts very practical.
Plus, I always have a thing for stripes and red going together :)
(I am sorry the Instagram filter makes my knees look grubby,
I swear they are cleaner in real life. Heh)
And then I was channeling my inner school girl one day,
which also happened to be the day I emptied this whole bottle of water
inside my bag and soaked my ipad, phone and wallet.
All of them.
It must have started a whole chain of bad luck
cos I somehow got bitten by sandflies and
my ankles looked really scary.
I would have posted pics of them
if not for YC begging me to stop going around showing everyone the photos
and grossing them out.
(sorry Mella. HAHAHHAHAHA)
which also brought me back to why I wore a maxi.
I really dress according to the occasion.
Or situation, depending on how you look at it.
am embracing cut-outs this season (yes! I have changed my style!)
so expect more daring stuff over at MP.
And cos I felt guilty for not wearing my new stuff,
here is my new Zara striped skirt.
I know, I know.
I need to stop buying anymore striped stuff.
lastly, I really wanted to wear these heels again
plus I haven worn jeans in ages,
so here is my dress-down day.
White & denim ranks pretty high on my fail proof outfit list :)
Introduced ruby-pier.com to Sharms and Mella
and we all happily bought new trinkets!
the cross bracelet is probably more me BUT
am changing my style, so i got the prism necklace too.
Its crazily affordable, just $10 SGD each?!
I just spotted this infinity ring on their site that I really want.
But its a mid ring, which forever makes me feel like I might lose it,
so if its your kinda thing, please go ahead. :(
Lastly, received my first Trove from Vanity Trove
and nothing beats getting a parcel sent straight to your doorstep!
some beauty god up there must have heard my whines
(cos i turned 3 shades darker post Montigo)
and sent me some Elizabeth Arden Whitening products for the month!
If you haven't already heard,
what Vanity Trove does is to ship you a box of sample-sized beauty products monthly,
for just $25,
so you can try these samples out before deciding if you want to commit
and get the whole bottle from a particular brand!
Subscription can be just for 1 month, 3 months or a year with no minimum requirements.
There are new products every month with a mixture of skincare, makeup and haircare etc
so for all your beauty junkies out there, why not? :)
