Top: ASOS, Culotte: Monki, Shoes: On Pedder, Backpack: Urban Outfitters
There is something so rewarding about taking the time to put an outfit together for an evening out on the town. Lately with work basically taking up 24/7 of my life and T serving the nation, we’ve rarely found the time (or energy) to drag ourselves out of the house and have a nice dinner. Reasons why I love when the 14th of each month arrives. This means I have a reason to make T bring me to a nice place (my choice of course muahahah) to eat where I also force him to take my ootd and sit there staring at food while I spend 20 minutes taking photos.
That aside, I’m loving my new culottes from Monki in Europe!! The only one in Asia is in HK if I’m not wrong but I am absolutely in love with their clothes. My only regret is spending too much at the Adventure time store meaning I had to be very price conscious at Monki 😦 The culottes were only £10 (15SGD??). Side story- I was honestly coveting these pants for a good month or so on the online store so to have found them on sale in europe was a dream come true!!!! They are so light and airy making it perfect for the Singapore weather yet bring an edge to the outfit as compared to the usual high waisted shorts and mini skirts that everyone in SCAPE wears. I even wore them to work and the flow-y material allowed me to move around the cafe with ease. hehe can’t wait to wear them out more or not wear them at all until I’ve properly rotated all my new pieces of clothing wewewew. Hopefully I’ll get the Amsterdam photo diary up next cause the draft has just been sitting there…
No that isn’t me…. This is T as in Tangsy as in Tang as in I call my boyfriend by his last name cause I like the sound of it. Decided to stop being a narcissistic bitch and posting about myself for once HAHA (once in a blue moon occurrence woohoo).
So, this is T’s ootd from our date night at Standing Sushi Bar. If you walk along orchard road or any other road for that instance, you’ll find boys i.e. age 15-25, all dressed the same. Majority wears the same shorts, or jeans depending, with a long sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up and that bloody pair of Sperry’s or a boat shoe of that variety. Which in my opinion doesn’t look bad, it’s just plain ass boring. I’ve also come to the conclusion that it sucks to be male.
For one, men’s clothing is more expensive. You don’t see good looking suits going for anything less than 200, yet a girl can rack up a dress of equivalent appropriateness for a fraction of the price. Women also have tons of variety- Skirts, shirts, pants, all coming in multitudes of patterns, shapes and colours. All men can really do is play with patterns but they are still placed under a glass ceiling, lest they look gay or like Tim Gunn. Then again Tim Gunn is gay. Okay rambling sorry back to my point.
My point is that, I am so happy for T in my life. He’s never afraid to go out of the norms. He isn’t afraid to be different from everyone else and not follow the same bullcrap everyone else gives. From layering with his denim jacket he loves so flipping much to being that voice of reason and to look beyond the glass ceiling. He’s able to see situations in new perspectives and make them work for him (as you can tell we aren’t taking about fashion anymore…). He isn’t one to cruise along with the rest just because it is safe or popular. Yet, he never gets into conflicts cause the asshole is always right and sometimes I hate that about him but most of the times I love it. Most. He brings out the best in me and he makes up for what I lack. We complement each other like ying and yang and I hope you (yes, you the reader) will find that too.
