for the record

The Pareto principle states that for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. So naturally, most people wear 20% of their clothes 80% of the time. And I suppose that includes me.

Consequently, most wardrobe consultants would advise people to toss the clothes which they do not wear or like, and only keep the pieces which they feel great in. But I hate getting rid of my beloved clothes, so I have to ensure that I wear most if not all of them, if not they’d be simply taking up precious space in my closet.

I started a list of possible outfit combinations late last year and have been adding to it ever since. Unfortunately, I have only worn a few of the outfits I came up with. Hopefully I can wear more of them soon!

In any case, I have decided that I will photograph all my daily outfits for the month of March! Just to record what exactly I wear and how to shake things up a little! Starting tomorrow!!! :D

Since 2011 is finally winding down to a close (in just a couple of hours really!) and we are right on the threshold of a new year, it’s a very good time to do a (hopefully) quick wrap up of the year.

rainy friday morning

It’s a wet grey morning……

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

rings and things

Met Zhiqi for brunch on Sunday, 10 April. We wanted to try Food For Thought in Queen Street, but when we got there, it was completely filled. They said the wait would probably be around an hour, so we walked down the street and popped into TCC at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts instead.

think pink

Accessorized my white blouse and pink skirt from Zara with my pink Lanvin for H&M necklace today.

Halfway on the train home, I managed to get a seat. Had only sat down for about ten minutes when this chubby young woman, wearing a long dress with thin black and white stripes and a rope necklace made of bright orange seed beads, on my left suddenly turned to me and said, ‘Your necklace is very pretty, where did you get it?’

mixing metals

The usual fashion rule is not to mix gold and silver; yesterday when I took leave and went out,  I wore a grey puff-sleeved top, black shorts, low black pumps, carried a black handbag and accessorized thus:

Watch: Citizen, from random watches and spectacles shop near my place
Amethyst ring: Goldheart (This was a gift from parents for my 21st!)
Sunburst ring: stall in bazaar at SGH

很match…… does not conflict…… there’s no disharmony.
