The people around me (e.g. friends, colleagues, family ) are always always vigilant on how would i appear whenever there’s a quiet get together inside a coffee house or a movie date or a trip to the nearby grocery. Oftentimes whenever they’d see me in my Cheap Mondays and Doc Marten’s they would ridiculously ask me if imma go t0 , say, a club scene or somewhere very flashy.
What i do to trim down the whole look is i leave my hair unkempt and rumpled.. i dont think too much on what accessories would match.. and about the leather shoes? oh i intentionally leave it a bit withered and dusty..
sometimes i’d wear these geeky glasses and a big bag just to weaken other factors that make the whole me attention-grabbing(accdg. to some)..also it makes others think that ima just head out to school haha
Anyhow, if there’s a lesson or two i learned in finding my personal mantra when it comes to dressing up is to never take it too seriously and i know a lot will really relate to this as well..
my advise : Wear a sequined tank top to visit a friend in the hospital or pick yer 5 inched Louboutins to buy cabbage and pickles at a nearby grocery …crazy i know , but life is too short for limitations..for inhibitions and fear.
today, i wore my new found love: a black suede wedge from Nine West.
my girlfriends told me that wedges are friendlier than pumps and platforms : NOT!!
I went to a friend in Makati to get the stuff that he borrowed 2 seasons ago and while enjoying the instant height and posture them shoes give, i couldnt hide the tender pain it brings to my tarsals… i mean the bones on my toes.. Nevertheless, i enjoyed this experience. fashion masochism , yes?
the prominence of man-heels and wedges on the runways led to this personal championing. the juxtaposition of these horse-like shoes to one’s skinny legs is but a winsome sight.
i also enjoyed wearing Mike’s gift: the sweater cape which has a very interesting zipper details on the front. Very Rad Hourani indeed..
by the way, i dyed my hair lighter..
