raleene 's Thoughts:

Many, many thanks to all those who added me as a favorite! Just got to know about the fans section (ahahaa im such a newb) and discovered that people have actually added me. It made my day, thanks guys! XOXO

My gosh the weather is killin me. It’s really hard to put together an outfit every day since I have to make sure that I can move, do my plates/sketches comfortably and still look decent for school. I’m usually in a hurry so that makes it even harder. I have to learn how to plan out my outfits to avoid rushing every day!

38degrees Celsius tonight. agh.

Anywhoo, this is what I wore to scout for a new air conditioning unit with mum a while ago since my dad noticed that afternoons were getting too hot for the electric fans to handle in our dining area. Unbearable weather = irritable tenants. Ha, ha! And to think my family’s usually a hilarious bunch!

AND I got my nails done in a salon for the first time in 3 months today. I usually do them on my own since I’m sooo OC about it, but having someone else do them for me is definitely a sign that my school load’s piling up again. sigh

I used to love summer! Since I’m in a school that’s following a quarterm system, that word is non-existent in my world now.

On a lighter note, lookie! I got myself a new pair of cutout gladiator sandals. Yay! Perfect for the scorching heat. Paired it up with my backless geometric-print top. I love geometric prints and patterns! I think that’s why my designs in school are more angular than everybody else’s (most girls tend to make more romantic and flowing designs).

Oh just a little tidbit about me… My major isn’t Fashion or Photography… I’m taking up Interior Design :)

1st photo: what I wore today
2nd photo: Old photo, the denim skirt and accessories I paired with the top makes it a dressy outfit. I would’ve stepped out in a skirt today but that’s not decent ‘nuff for school :)) it’s seriously a micro-mini skirt (with big holes in front)
3rd photo: closeup of my braids (headband + actual hair lol) and flats :) I’m liking the length of my hair now, I can do more with it!

I saw this in Topshop... but totally did not notice it was backless! I think I want it now :) Oh and I've always wanted to wear braids, but I end up looking like a try-hard pubescent. Ack. You look great as usual :)
