All the fashion gurus were correct when they said that one needs to invest on basic pieces like a plain white top or well-fitting pants. I wish I took these pieces of advice when I was younger because basics never go out of style. I just remembered making this “layout” months ago when I was asked for my wishlist. Hehe.
So yeah, a roomy black bag that can be used along with almost any outfit, and a silver, “grown up” watch that exudes srs bznz haha. I’ll choose a roomy handbag over small purses any day (although there were instances when I’d go for a clutch, but those are only reserved for days when I don’t really have to lug everything around). Not a huge fan of those plastered with repetitive/loud logos, and blingy ones with heavy accessories because the contents of my bag are heavy enough to make my shoulder wince in pain. Perhaps it is for that reason that Longchamp totes are a huge success. Haha. I also don’t like totes that require me to fit my arm inside just so I could fish for my sanitizer or whatnot, in the same way that bags with excessive width are so not commuter friendly. The handbag above is the perfect size, height/weight wise, so thank you to my uncle and aunt for buying it, hehe. Also, I obviously know everything I dislike. Haha!
As for the watch, it’s timeless and all but I got myself a really quirky piece from Swatch courtesy of my uncle, so I guess getting the timeless-timekeeping device (LOLWHUT) would be on hold.
How about you, what are your other style essentials?
