Basic Canvas

Jacket: Asos// Tee: Zara// Shorts: local store// Necklace: Swarovski// Ring: Bershka// Booties: Giles for Nine West// Sunnies: c/o Ana Jeffrey


Just because it's a basic piece, doesn't mean it's not hard to choose outfits. In fact, the problem is that it  goes with everything, so that whenever you think you've decided on one outfit, another piece or idea puts you completely off track again.

This jacket was the cherry on top of my April purchases. I was so excited to have it, so when it did not come on time, I emailed Asos immediately. Turns out it was just held in customs for a while (must be all those studs, they must have thought it was a concealed weapon). I paired it with everything - brights, pastels, shorts, skirts etc etc. - before Nicole from Gary Pepper gave me a really good idea, all white to make the standout piece really pop!

Ain't it just the perfect canvas for such a special jacket?? And it's not boring, which is cool. Right now, I am so obsessed with it that I've been wearing it daily (check my instagram to see what I mean). It's light enough not to be stuffy on warm days, and warm enough to be okay for those cold and rainy nights. The best transitional piece for erratic, abnormal Macau climate.

Anyways, I've been having an epiphany lately. Life is not all well and good because once again, one of my closest friends has decided that she would rather believe someone else's gossip (and then make a public attack) that I had done something bad instead of trusting me and asking me directly about it. We have not talked in a while, and quite frankly, I don't know if I still want to. The whole thing is so highschool drama it's ridiculous! I really do not want to go back there because it was the worse four years of my existence. Do you know how much I've done to get out of there? See FAB for a little example, and I don't think one person should be able to just revert me back and make me start over. I have this feeling nowadays that I'd rather have three people around that trust me and love me for everything - not just a select few attributes - and won't just pull a 360 everytime they get a piece of nasty gossip, than a hundred friends who only like me occasionally and within reason. 

Whew...I know that is a large chip on my shoulder I have just released. But it's been there a while and you all know there's nowhere else I'd rather spill. Thank you for always listening.

See you soon,
- Che

High school became the an awful adventure because of my 'bestfriend' and I still have one more year left ;( The problem is the same, I kept my silence, and it didn't go exactly I thought it will. What I'm sure about is that there's better to come :D
