Spring is in the air, and ready to wear. (That rhymed, right, right?)
Taking a few minutes to browse through some collections and decided to share.
From Alice+Olivia: Fun, vibrant, fun and completely age-appropriate to wear. Although, I could have done without the jarring orange lipstick.
From Miu Miu: a collection inspired by society’s obsession with fame. I guess all those pops of bright hues make perfect sense. I’m honestly interested in seeing how these pieces get translated by blogshops and the likes, since many of these pieces work on a balance of quality, fit and proportion. Tip the balance a bit, and I think they may come off dowdy instead.
I have had a terrible shock. Coming home from work today, I stepped into the lift (elevator, whichever you prefer) with an old man that I thought was a renovation/construction worker. On our way up the floors, he suddenly told me that he was heading to the 25th storey of my building to see if he can jump off it. I was shocked to say the least, and I didn’t know what to say or how to react. He told me not to panic, and not to call the police, that it’s nothing, and he’s just going to take a look. I called the cops anyway, once I got out at the 22nd floor (where I’m located). The cops are combing the floors of my building one by one now, and I sincerely hope that HE WAS JUST JOKING. But even if he was, nobody’s laughing. Certainly not me.
Seeing the serious and laboured faces of the civil defense unit that’s combing the floors made me respect them. It must not be easy wearing that heavy uniform in this weather, combing 25 storeys. That’s intense.
On a more frivolous front, apologies about the lack of outfit posts, I just haven’t been in the mood. Don’t feel like I’ve been wearing anything worthy. In lieu, I present something far greater- Miu Miu Shoes. FUCK ME, but they’re really gorgeous and knowing that there is no way I can afford them, I actually hit a new low yesterday. I trolled google for some sort of “Miu Miu inspired” shoes. Heh. I failed.
These shoes are going to my “When I have $$” List.
