Monday!! =) Hope you’re having a good one.=)
This was me yesterday as sunday is dog day for us. It’s one day of the week when the most important are our doggy woggies.=) We walk them almost everyday, sometimes in the morning when the whole city is still in bed and the only people in the boulevard are fitness enthusiasts and tea places people preparing their business, sometimes at night when it’s cool, but on sundays, we stay there for hours untill they (doggies) are too tired to run around and had enough of the grass. This is what i wore. I was preparing 7 outfits for my vintage week and saw this top and i knew, right there and then what i am going to wear it with. I got it from Ebay a couple of years ago and never wore it. I love the lapels and that it’s sleeveless and it’s really designed to be tied on the waist to expose a bit of skin. Jeans are also from Ebay which i won by watching the auction all night. Bag is from Accessorize-one of the items in my Sun Wish List. I hope you like the outfit, it’s one look i can imagine my mother wearing when she was younger, on a date with my father maybe.=) Though my mother wasn’t as dark as i am here. I got my color from my father, which i used to hate when i was a child but started to love when i was growing up, when i was surrounded with Snow Whites wishing they too dont look so pale. I am actually darker in real life, my husband sometimes calls me his little African girl. My sisters have fairer skin, because they hide from the sun, they even use papaya soap sometimes, silly girls.=). Some of you know that i am a sun worshipper. I’d cook myself out there as if i cans till get any darker.=)
And oh, i received a question about my outfits. Do i take photos for Chictopia (Blog) or do i actually wear them out. Well, i do both. I try very hard to take good enough photos for Chictopia/Pandora’s Box and that’s why my photographer aka Husband tries to find a nice spot to take the photos even it means we’ll have audience watching us. We dont mind, we amuse them for 2 minutes anyway.=) And they are my daily life outfits too. So when i dress up, i have a few things in mind. Like what i wrote in my blog- Chictopia/Blog, weather, location, activity, Diddy, locals (if im at home believe me i’d wear anything and will not care! But i’m not in my own country, i have to be a bit culturally sensitive.) season/trends and my mood. All of that in 15 to 20 minutes of getting ready (sometimes half an hour when nothing works and i’d end up wearing my Stella McCartney blazer or my turban). I have to know that it’s nice enough inside our bedroom and nice enough for the world outside as well. But most of all, i dont like wasting an outfit, i put it together, it looks fine, it has to experience life, even if it’s only for 2 hours while i sit there and smoke my cigarette and sip my tea.=)
We watched “Food Inc.” last night, in th box it said “You will never look at food the same way again”. That made me pick it up. A very important film indeed and yes, after watching it, we will never look at burger the same way again.. So if you guys want a good watch and if you care enough to know what’s happening in the kitchen, see the movie.=) We rated it 8 1/2.=)
Thank you thank you very much for the comments and votes, always. And when i say i think of Chictopia when i dress up, that means you, you who have been keeping this page going…thank you….
Love Love Kiss Kiss
