Have you often thought of trying to do things differently for a change? It could be my monotonous day job, that makes me want to break out of routine as frequently as I can. Cliche as it may sound, it’s always the little things I make an effort with, that count. On some days, instead of taking the train, I’d catch the bus to work. I try to make my weekday breakfast interesting by serving up a bowl of leftover Chinese congee or soup from dinner, rather than the usual soggy cereal or plain bread and butter toasts. Instead of relying on my usual Nespresso capsules, I would treat myself to freshly roasted/grinded coffee, prepared in a plunger, on some weekend mornings.
Being so passionate about fashion, I’ve much bolder takes on new styles and colours. Doing things differently helps me to break into fresh perspective, and thus to be able to concoct new looks from my existing wardrobe without trying too hard, or get into the excuse of, “I have a bursting wardrobe, and yet, I have no idea what to wear!”.
Just a couple of days ago, I thought to myself, “Since I have always started with what I put on my body, why not try matching up my heels and handbags first?”
So, that was what I set about doing, before heading out for my big weekend plans.
I just bought a ridiculously loud clutch, at an equally ridiculous low price. No doubt, it was an impulsive purchase. Rather than letting it sit in the closet, I have decided that I need to bring it out for at least once. Then, I thought about the red heels I have so much wanted to get more mileage out of. They were just a perfect match! I had a white top worn with camel-coloured pants, to go with the shoes and clutch.
Being a fan of nautical look, I thought it would be an interesting change to create the colour scheme with my rather under-used kelly bag, and the neglected creamy white Nine West heels. With that, all I pulled out from my wardrobe was a white shirt and blue jeans, to complete the look!
Do you have a favourite hangbag/shoes match?
