wish list for post-new year

i had refrained from shopping since last year. i even distanced myself from window shopping to avoid any temptation. this has been out of respect of ailing economy. still, too much of nothing is not good. as a result, i found myself standing at a shopping plaza today. 

i didn’t have the shopping spree. not much money flied out of my pocket. window shopping, however, was what i was doing all afternoon, hurting my feet in the process. my personal finance is so dire that i couldn’t bring myself to pay for many things. all i brought home were bunch of wish-list hehehe 🙂

new year is over now. maybe maybe maybe i hope for chinese new year gifts

saving the best for last 🙂 the beautiful oxford. stems from my desire to look chic and academic 🙂


work of art

i was like andrea from the devil wears prada – pre-makeover time. i used to think of anything fashion-related was irrelevant to me. one reason is that i don’t have a ‘head’ for creativity. to dress nice requires a creative mind, which i don’t have. without creativity, it’s even more difficult to adapt those items, which don’t come cheap, or replace them with something as nice, into your daily wardrobe. the chance of me getting exposed to or experimenting is slim to none.

not that i become a millionaire these days. i’m still the same poor self as i have always been. what changes is my perspective. i have seen more, viewed more, and appreciated more of those exquisite pieces of design. i have come to admit, those pieces are fruit of artistic labor. the only way to achieve that is to put a lot of ideas, dedication, and creativity into it to produce such a creation. 

case in point. these necklaces are not what come to mind when you typically think of the said accessory, are they?
