Bag 3.1 PHILLIP LIM
Sandals WINDSOR SMITH
So I’m back at home, back to my usual creature comforts. Major pro: being reunited with my cutie-pie cat Claudius. Major con: no longer having access to the twinnie’s (Tasfia’s) ample leather jacket collection and ahem, of course no longer being in her company (especially after a week together).
It is so often the case that I have a pretty specific (but not exact) idea of a particular kind of outfit in mind. But, more often than not, the reality (i.e. what is out there in the market) doesn’t meet one's expectation or your desires. (I kinda feel like I’m reciting a self-help book) but this happens way too often for me. I want to wear a cool all blue outfit in interesting silhouettes but can’t find the suave pieces to constitute it. I wan’t to wear a stripe and check outfit with the top and bottoms in opposing colours and stripe directions but can't find the right pieces to synergize with. The latter was the dilemma I tried to face when conceiving this look. I didn’t have any contrasting stipe and check pieces to wear together so I made a skirt out of this delightful diagonally striped dress with this piece of Cris-cross perfection over it and I kinda really liked the effect. I didn’t really wear this look to share on the blog but somehow it has squeezed its way onto this little corner of the world wide web...
