Worth It


I hope I didn't give out a melancholic hipster vibe on that one. Ninz and I just got carried away with the mood the view gave us that afternoon. :)) Take two!



I’m usually the type who would roll my eyes when I see a tiny plain black top that costs as much as a dress. Or say, a tiny sheer polo that costs as much as a skirt, or glasses and hats hat cost as much as an office bag. I always make it a point to get my money’s worth on everything. When I saw this and it was this and a white one versus a pair of sturdy acid washed jeggings, Ofcourse I’d pick…

These.

“What is wrong with you, woman.” I thought to myself. I guess times have changed a little bit and I’ve realized the value a woman should invest in her closet basics, yes usually the plain ones that no one would think of “shopping”. Basics don’t uplift spirits like pastel sequined tops do. They don’t brighten up a girl’s day like sorbet skirts or graphic shirts do. In fact, you will find yourself staring blankly at it the minute you pull it out of the paper bag and into your closet right when you get home (Points to self). But these are pieces that you will, one time too often, be grateful you have. They go with anything, they take you from day to night, from park to work, they rarely go out of style, they can be pretty amazing at being either the main event of your outfit or the supporting cast.

Right now I’m having too much fun with this tiny thing that it scared me that it might get worn out too soon. You see the next time you bump into a pair of great fitting pair of khaki soft pants, flattering white jeans, a well made black bag, or a plain tiny top with a chic halter cut, don’t be too quick on putting it down.  Trust in your gut when it says you need it. It’ll be worth it!

Sorry for the photos. :))  Had no intention to take outfit photos that day but when we got to Crimson the view was just breath taking so we snapped a few quickly from a pad before heading out. We went straight to a soccer game at the grand stand after this feeling like a junior Victoria Beckham. :)))

  7. You look great, babe, I especially like that skirt! And you could definitely pass as Victoria Beckham. If you put on 10 inch heels that is.:D But you look just as fabulous as her.;)
