This summer has been really tough for me and i almost completely forgotten this space. I don’t know if anyone reads this anymore but i will always remember that i am doing this for myself. I will be back soon.
My father used to say,
“Superior people never make long visits,
have to be shown Longfellow’s grave
nor the glass flowers at Harvard.
Self reliant like the cat –
that takes its prey to privacy,
the mouse’s limp tail hanging like a shoelace from its mouth –
they sometimes enjoy solitude,
and can be robbed of speech
by speech which has delighted them.
The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence;
not in silence, but restraint.”
Nor was he insincere in saying, “`Make my house your Inn’.”
Inns are not residences.
Thrifted item :
Crochet pleated skirt & Clutch
Off shoulder top from F21 i bought from my friend many years ago,
My friend Ana brought to me a new place where they do wholesale clothing in Hong Kong, so i did some shopping for summer in which i did end up burning a considerably large hole in my wallet. But nothing beats a good find at the thrift store.
Sorry for the lack of updates, in all honesty i really do this blog for myself so i never truly feel obliged to fulfill or attract more readers. I do this because i enjoy it and i do not have to explain myself further actually. Nevertheless, i have been really busy getting my life back on track after falling ill and also trying my best to have an enriching summer.
Here is a weekend outfit from 2 weeks back while i was on my way to get BLT burgers with my friend who came back from UK.I’m back to the thrift store this summer so i will include one thrifted item in every outfit post if possible this summer.
Thrifted piece : Black Maxi skirt with diagonal thread patterned detail
Vintage : Bag hand down by my mom.
Belt : DIY Ribbon
Off shoulder top ; F21 , Shoes ; Pull & Bear
I cannot get over the off shoulder design, to me it gives out a really feminine vibe and sexy vibe and yet you’re not actually revealing anything indecent.
I miss these girls so much. We had such a lovely picnic back in Singapore, where almost had the entire place to ourselves. The weather was perfect. Thank you girls for planning this and spending time with me. I feel so happy when i am close to nature as i live right in the city, the hustle and bustle, the smoke really chokes me.
There’s nothing better than cold cream on a summer day.
Ending with Some Love ~!
I’m not a fashion blogger nor a narcissist but occasionally i do take out my camera to recreate images i have in my head. Sometimes the images have meaning to them, sometimes its better not to assume any. I will continue to to take pictures , of myself and others to express a state of mind. An abstract idea. An emotion. I hope you wouldn’t mind this. Sometimes, it is a form of release for me.
The falling, not fallen.
Ever since returning to Hong Kong, i have fallen ill again. A sudden fever and then a series of rather violent coughs. Frightening strangers who take their seat beside me on public transport, and still dragging myself to work despite knowing my that my body belongs to the bed with a cup of warm water by my side. I hope desperately to recover soon so that i may get more things done.
And the rain just begin , a windy night to sleep in indeed.
