Back to the winter lands it is today, with a simple monochromatic outfit in the snow, in what was then a brand-new Forever 21 one-piece in black. Ottie says that it’s my nun outfit, but damn if it isn’t my favourite steal from my favourite guilty pleasure store in the USA – this dress was only USD $13! I had to restrain myself from binging on all the cheap garments and accessories, knowing what little space I had back home. Also, being aware of the need for sustainable fashion does nag at the back of my mind once in a while…
The heeled boots were also new at that time, acquired during Macy’s One Day Sale for USD $20 (the original price wasÂ USD $80); I wore those boots to my wedding dinner!
To balance things out, my jacket originally belonged to my mum (who bought it on a trip to Hong Kong), but I took a fancy to it and now it’s mine. Muahaha.
Damn, I had a good hair day. I still don’t regret chopping it all off though – the fact that I don’t need to whip my head back to get hair out of my face everytime the breeze changes directions has made me appreciate my short locks. Perhaps I’ll tire of it some day, but not today.
