Breaching impossible

Wearing Dorothy Perkins floral motives puff sleeved dress, Balenciaga inspired booties, Rimmel 260 Funtime Fuschia.

 i can impossibly imagine me wearing a real Balenciaga or Sam Edelman bootie. First, obviously it would cost me a bomb. Second, it would also cost me a bomb… Hmm. However, i suffered much a struggle in trying to get over it. Thank God that i have discovered a local online blog store that brings in ‘designer-inspired’ or ‘fashion-inspired’ shoes all the way from Korea (if i am not wrong). . i almost could not believe my eyes and was quite stunned when i first glared at these boots one night when i was browsing through the net to ease off my shopping addictions after a hard day at work that i don’t even passionate about. It’s all worth the money for now considering my financial health in an intensive care unit at stage. i always thank Him for the path in preventing me from splurging into ‘expensive-and-could-not-afford buys. i gave a thought, many many times with that thousands of bucks spent on fetish-looking-booties-that-i-know-i-would-not-even-wear-it-out-in-public-not-especially-in-a-sub-urb-name-Kuantan-except-for-blogging-purpose. Phew! :D i could do good by getting a plentiful collection of vintage dresses for myself and the many important things that i always almost forgot to do like car painting & overhaul, a decent Western cuisine family dinner treat and a problem-free handphone for my boyfriend.

i wonder, how many of us as ‘fashion-bloggers’ overindulged ourselves with designer’s-labels just to feel good about ourselves in it and in the end, ended up feeling empty and devastated all over again? And the cycle continues… Do you? As for me, yes. How do you cope with your temptations & money when it is getting out of control? Any suggestions? Tips are welcome here. Would love to hear from you. Good night & Have a nice weekend ahead!

The sisters lunch post

Posted in Food & Dining by styleantagonist on February 24, 2010

Above all, nothing compares to the taste of mummy’s deep-fried pork patty we had on our second day of new year. It will take us some time again to have it… It only comes once in a blue moon when mummy has the cool mood to cook :-[

Express Outfit Post

Posted in Inspiration, Style by styleantagonist on August 16, 2009

laundry (1)laundrylaundry (2)Wearing Padini Seed Work Stripe Cotton Blouse, Weekenders Shorts, Black Criss Cross Shoe

Was just playing around mix matching. Feeling very bored. Geez, styling can be fun but the cleaning up & preparation kills! Especially when pulling out an outfit from the stack of clothes in my wardrobe, i always ended up pulling out two or more at a time. Seriously need a computerized wardobe organizer with an index for easy and fast reference, thus producing a matrix combination within every single piece of outfit to cut down the mix-matching time :D (That’s very useful especially in the morning, instead of standing in front of the wardrobe thinking what to wear to work, church & etc.) Most of my clothes are organized and utilized in LIFO (Last in, First Out) system as i am very lazy to take from the bottom most :D. Sorry, i tend to treat my wardrobe like the computer file allocation system, i wish i could someday. Happy day!
