SUPER STREET

This is probably one of the streetiest streetstyle looks I have worn on this blog. You know how those sports bras are now en vogue? Well, I found this version of it in sweater form, complete with the mens' brief garter. It was so cute when I found it that I couldn't resist. Since most of my shoes are still in storage, I only have a finite number (four, to be exact) to choose from. So, voila, that's how I completed this look with my over-the-knee boots.

So, outfit aside, today I've been thinking about job interviews. For me, little is more nerve-wracking, more sweat-inducing, than a job interview. You are there to beg for a job, but not look too desperate. You're supposed to stand out in a crowd of homogenous, suit-wearing fresh graduates in a group interview where you have around 10 to 15 minutes. 15 minutes to tell them why you, in your suit and briefcase, are the one for the job. Oh and don't even get me started on interviews in Macao. Basically, most jobs are more interested in your fluency in Chinese rather than anything special about you.

On the other hand, I wonder about the ones choosing. How hard it must be to sit and comb through hundreds of candidates a day, all homogenous at first glance. It isn't exactly the best case scenario as well. Sigh...life is complicated. How many of you feel the same? I think it's safe to say that the majority of those who have work hate interviews as well right?

See you soon,

Sometimes you don't need color, all you need is the void of black and white. It always delivers - the outfit sharp and now. I thought the different textures was a good play on it, right? Anyways, here's my underwhelming outfit of the day. Autumn is finally picking up in Macao, now if only the sun would come to play, it would make for some great outfit shoots. But instead we landed our shoot on an overcast, sad, dreary afternoon. Cold enough for this neoprene W sweater I wore all the time last winter, but not for heavier knits. Also, my pleather skirt. Not much in terms of accessories save for this body chain I bought forever ago and a mini clutch as part of a goodie bag I got during HK Fashion Week (See here for that post)

Oh about my hair? Oh let's just say I've been sporting the same sideswept hairstyle on this blog for so long now, I wanted a change. So I combed it all back with my fingers (the beauty of messy curls) and put some hold. Voila! A different hairstyle for you today!

I wish I had a more glamorous excuse to dress up, but in all reality this outfit was for comfort as I was headed out to pick up some furniture we got at Ikea. I can't help but dream of dressing with somewhere to go - somewhere that justifies an 'outfit', and I know many of you feel the same. Let me know who in the comments.

See you soon lovelies!

Macao continues with the weather fart. It still feels like summer, and at the same time, I shxt you not but the weather was perfectly sunny only 30 minutes before these photos were taken. When we finally got down to business it had become dark and overcast, and windy! I mean, just look at my hair! Bipolar, as usual. Go figure.

Anyways, since it isn't cold enough for jackets, I've had to express my love for fall a different way - by wearing those fall staple colors like burgundy, brown and gold, as well as the color of these new shorts I'm wearing, which is forest green. I have a small deficiency of green clothes in my closet, so when I found these shorts, had to snap them up immediately. Love the fall appropriate print as well.

Life-wise, well, let's just say I am getting tired of sitting and doing nothing. I mean, I know I deserve a break after a year of really brain-eating work but I just can't wait to get out again. I keep telling myself 'when everything is back to absolute normality, I can get back to work' oh but how I wish now normality would come a little sooner. Sigh, how's autumn in your part of the world sweeties? I hope it's better than ours.

See you soon,
