sweet teeth

Colleague D wanted to get a present for a friend and asked me to go with her after work yesterday.  Her friend likes Hello Kitty and has an iPhone, so we ended up in this nook in the toy section on the third floor of Takashimaya, which sold anything and everything related to Hello Kitty. And D picked out a Hello Kitty iPhone cover for her friend.

Then we went for coffee at Starbucks in Wisma Atria. D treated me to coffee cos I accompanied her to shop. Haha.

men shop in bulk

In university, I lived mainly in the same Topshop tank top in four colours (coral, red, bright green and dark brown), paired with various skirts. Now that I am working, I own the same Zara blouse in four colours (white, fuchsia, orange and teal).

So you can see why this article struck a chord in me:

For Guys, a Great Find Is Often Multiplied

John Ortved

WOMEN shop, men stockpile. That’s one theory, anyway, of how men buy clothes differently from women. If women see shopping as an opportunity, a social or even therapeutic activity, the thinking goes, then men see it as a necessary evil, a moment to restock the supply closet.

At the risk of perpetuating sex stereotypes, the archetype may have been Steve Jobs. When Mr. Jobs died in October, he left behind not only a peerless legacy, but a closet full of identical black cotton turtlenecks by Issey Miyake. “If he loved a shirt, he’d order 10 or 100 of them,” his sister, the author Mona Simpson, said in her eulogy.

It was an obsession that many men could relate to. Here, stylish New Yorkers reflect on their wardrobe hoarding.

another foolproof work outfit

Another outfit I frequently rely on for work:

In a changing room in Zara Great World City, 18 November 2011……

Blouse: Zara
Skirt: GG<5
Necklace: Mango
Watch: Citizen, random watch and spectacles shop near my house
Handbag: Elle, hand-me-down from the mother
Heels: Americaya, BHG

Early this year, one day I was wearing this outfit, and went and ordered food from my favourite western food stall in Tiong Bahru Market. The 老板娘 said my necklace ‘很特别,很漂亮’ and one of the helpers (a guy) asked me if I had just come back from Egypt!!! Haha!!! :D

breaking out the lanvin

Wore my other Lanvin for H&M necklace out, for the first time, to work on 20 December.

Postbox outside Outram MRT, haha!

I had just mailed a letter when I realized it was the perfect makeshift mirror to photowhore with! :)

Blouse: Bysi
Skirt: GG<5
Necklace: Lanvin for H&M
Watch: random watch and spectacles shop near my house
Handbag: Elle, hand-me-down from the mother
Heels: Americaya, BHG

Somehow my red necklace looks pretty festive. I thought I liked my pink one better but clearly red is pretty special as well! :)

you learn something new every day

The hard plastic bits covering the ends of your shoelaces are called aglets.

rainy friday morning

It’s a wet grey morning……

And wearing black pants, black shoes, black bag and black watch……

Luckily the vibrant green silk blouse I had on added a much-needed pop of colour!!!

my foolproof work outfit

What I always wear when I don’t know what to wear, which I wore on Friday:

Taken in a washroom somewhere in MBS, haha!

Dress: Supermarket, a store in Far East Plaza (Wore this for the first time to my Commencement in July 2010!)
Handbag: Elle, a hand-me-down from the mother
Necklace: m)phosis
Watch: Citizen, random spectacles and watch shop near my house
Shoes: Americaya, Isetan

Sometimes I wear a different necklace, but that’s about it. :P
