Style Essentials

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.

Because a publishing girl with OC tendencies just had to layout wishlists…

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!

Peg For A Room

After I finished That Winter, The Wind Blows, I thought of starting The Innocent Man which features my other favorite actor, Song Joong Ki. Most forums compare the two Korean melodramas, piquing my interest. I must have been so lucky not to come across The Innocent Man spoilers while surfing for That Winter, The Wind Blows episode recaps.

I’m now on my third episode and Moon Chae Won’s character, the “rude, arrogant, fastidious and cold” Seo Eun Ki is slowly winning me over. I didn’t like Chae Won in the first episode because of her exaggerated pointed looks, but as the episodes passed, I realized that it’s just how her eyes are. I see a bit of myself in her. She’s very strong willed and tenacious. May I also mention that she looks damn good in minimalist yet edgy pieces? It’s exactly the style I want!
