OUTFITS

Salted Silk

I got myself a beautiful rust red silk blouse from Mango’s premium collection on Zalora a while ago, and was so excited to wear it out for the first time. Unfortunately, I forgot to account for the fact that Singapore is made out of  heat and moisture, and soon my look was destroyed by unsightly pit stains, leaving a salt rim on the blouse. I must have spent a good 15 minutes in the office restroom trying to rectify the stain. It was so embarrassing… then again, my humour is derived from the general uncouth vicinity of the toilet bowl, so I guess being embarrassed is something I had to get used to sooner or later. Luckily, the blouse is back to normal after a wash, but I’ve now learnt that it could only be worn when I’m certain to be in cooler temperatures  all the time, or in less anxious situations – living with hyperhidrosis sucks.

Another stain I’ve been living with belongs on my favourite pair of pants – I wore these Uniqlo jogger pants on my latest trip to India and somehow managed to get red dust and sand all over myself from exploring a couple of historical sites. They didn’t even wash off after multiple trips to the washer. Note to self: go to India for red pigments which last forever.
