CHANEL perfume

I've always dream of owning a brand like Chanel, Dior, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood etc in my closet, but the price is pretty overwhelming for a girl like me. Honestly, it's just a desire to be part of the brand, instead of really owning it. There are fashion bloggers/ fashionistas/celebrities out there who are willing to spend thousands on such brands on certain occasions. Well, I supposed it depends on how one perceives it and one's priority.

I admit to dreaming of owning such brands. They are timeless piece that portray sophistication, classicism, elegance and can be wore effortlessly. However, not everyone can afford these high-end brands. I've realised that fashion is not about buying expensive high-end brands, it's merely how one express his/her own style. For those who are able to showcase their styles with affordable pieces they find from night market/affordable boutique, they always somehow managed to impress me with their creative styles. As for me, I always emphasize on the design and quality of the clothes that suit my style. Of course, I only purchase affordable pieces which I deem necessary.

Guess what, the picture above is an original Chanel perfume of more than 20 years. It belonged to my mum, who received it as a wedding gift. Lucky much! (:

Red Peplum

Peplum from a boutique; ZARA shorts;
handbag from night market;
gold necklace from Ribbon and Asher;
butterfly necklace from Bonita (birthday present).

When I saw this red peplum during a Christmas shopping spree, I instantly fell in love with it. It has a few variety of colours like vermillion, white, navy blue and black, all of which I love, but the RED one caught my attention. It looked so lovely and classy, and so, it became an addition to my wardrobe. I love the texture of the peplum material, and the embedded flora like design to it that made it look kinda vintage and unique. Just wearing this top would cheer a person up.

My apologies for the poor lighting.

Not to be forgotten;

The seemingly insignificant yet important reminders in life:

Mind over matter.
Don't judge.
Be sincere to people and in the things you do.
Be yourself.
How others react is not up to you to decide; you don't react, you respond.

This post is inspired by my friends/people whom I talked/chatted with.
The essence of living is simple. Be yourself. Be sincere. Mind over matter.

Sometimes we may be overloaded with activities and programmes and think that we are actually living as we enjoy those activities. No doubt it is true, we make new friends and gain lotsa experience from the activities. Often, we got so caught up with stuff that we forget how to strike a balance in life. Balance is the word. We get tired if we overexert ourselves. Our immune system starts failing and we get sick. 

So today, take a break. Balance yourself while enjoying the journey of life.
