Living La Vida Chic

When life has become so routine, boredom creeps in slowly. This is the time to take action; to add some spice into life or to let boredom takes over life. Few tiny steps to spice up life through fashion are:

1. dress up for work or any social activities. If you look good, you feel good.
2. change hairstyle
3. purchase new accessories. It's a cheap way to expand your wardrobe/collection.
4. dress up based on a theme or trend at least once a week, eg. you can have a Girlie Day whereby you wear the most girlie outfit you have in your wardrobe. Bring out the girlie side of you which may have been hiding for so long. Enjoy and have fun with it.
5. try new colour
6. try new trend or style that you have been contemplating. Fashion is about experimenting styles.

Whenever I am feeling blah, I will make an effort to dress up a bit - add an accessories into my outfit. I have my session of retail therapies to de-stressing myself after a hard day or week at work. I usually purchase accessories such as necklaces and belts.

I am working on point #4 as I am not sure what theme to try. So far, I've tried vintage dress. Need to parade my purchases from flea market ;-) Will think and plan point #5 and #6. Looking forward to trying them.

I've got a feeling that life will slowly getting more fun in a fashionable way. Enjoy and live life in a stylish way.

Back in the shopping scene

I've just realised that I've neglected my blog for quite some time. It's time to make up for the lost time. It's time to blog actively again (keeping my fingers crossed).

Where have I been or why I have gone missing? Started new job in September and have been focusing on the job too much - working late etc. The workaholic in me possessed myself for a while till lately I think I need a break. Any kind of break would be lovely. Retail therapy would be superb.

I've just returned from a short and sweet retail therapy session. My favourite boutique is having 10th Anniversary sale and everything is on 20% discount (better than no discount at all). This time around, I've developed a theory; purchase items that you like the most and one of a kind at 20% discount. Purchase items that you like but can live without them (the ones you have been contemplating and making a long list of pros and cons) at 50% discount. For 70% discount, buy new style clothing items that you wanted to try but have limited budget to buy on full price during non-sale period. This is an affordable to experiment fashion.

I've got a feeling that I will be overspend this month. What the heck. If it is really worth it and I can benefit a lot from these items, I think my money is well spent. I guess, I can't shop next month or the next few months depending my shopping expenses for this month ;-)
