From my not so little black skirt transformed to the perfect little black dress, I got so inspired and realized how much I missed the no fail combination of Black and Gold! It used to be my daily outfit of choice until recently but since it was another confused day, cloudy and sunny at the same time, I decided to go for the classic black, white and gold.
I missed using my gold accessories like the necklace I am sporting and my fringe Zara suede flats so I decided to go for the simple and minimalist approach. And use gold to accent my favorite white tank top and Black jersey bubble skirt.
Afterall, I was only going to the hospital for my routine checkup with my cardiologist and so, armed with this outfit, the latest issue of Vogue and a big smile, I went on to face the day and whatever it might bring!
It was basically okay, I was doing good except that I might have diabetes too over the cholesterol and heart thing (my dad has diabetes so there’s like a 70% chance one of us three children might have as well). It’s really okay and it doesn’t really bother me that much. It was more expected than a surprise that came. There are so many fabulous food for diabetics out there anyway so it’s okay.
Anyway, needed to do some major wallet wrecking so did retail therapy after. It ALWAYS ALWAYS works. And I’ve officially succeeded out-shopping myself.
It takes me a really short time to decide things I want to purchase. I don’t really fret about it for days or think about it first to check if I can fit it with the things I already have in my closet.
My rule is: If I see it and fall in love with it, I get it. Pure impulse shopping. No room for regret.
I know I’m not exactly what you’d call a “SMART SHOPPER”. Ive accepted that and I do not pretend that I’m a smart consumer either. I know what I am and what I am not. But at the end of the day, i do not consider shopping a great challenge or a sport.
Personally, (and I do not mean to impose this on everyone…) SHOPPING isn’t about being SMART. SHOPPING is about being PASSIONATE!
Now if only passion and money to spend are directly proportional, Id be the happiest girl in the world! Haha.
Anyway it was a terrible day so I had an excuse to shop. (Not that I ever needed one…) but I am putting a rest to buying anything until I’ve worn all the things I bought! I have to passionate and practical at the same time…right?
Came up with my Christmas List as well today! I can’t wait! I seriously love buying gifts for the people I love!!!
Song inspiration for the day was REAL by Plumb…such a poor little rich girl’s song. I love it!
_Look at me I’m twenty three
Beautiful a sight to see
A little dress to draw the press
And I’ll be leaving
All the rest behind
Well be pleased girl
If this is what you wanted
The whole world is watching you take the stage
What will you say
Aren’t I lovely
And do you want me cause
I am hungry for something that will make me real
Can you see me and
Do you love me cause
I am desperately searching for something
I close my eyes imagine time
Will not forget
I numb the ache and decorate
Stand naked in the light
Well be pleased world
If this is what you wanted
This young girl is everything that you made
What will she say
The world goes home
The lights go down
My lipstick fades
