Kanye Tendency

Allow me to get this off my system for just one minute. 

Gahhhh!! Forever 21 is coming to Macau. And guess who got invited to the VIP pre-launch party? Oh, that's right. Yours truly!

I thought it was too good to be true when I received an email from their PR telling me of the event, that up until the day before yesterday when the invitation finally landed on my doorstep only did I believe - it's for real! Jump up and down and move it all around! Sooner than soon you and I will be able to take a sneak peek of their latest collection and experience private shopping at the new Sao Paulo flagship before the store officially opens to public (tune in with me on twitter and instagram on July 3). 

Exoiiiiiting! But while I can write a novel-long essay to express my delight, let's leave it at that for now before I jinx it.

So onto this outfit.


Trust to always find trends in Zara's racks even when the red tags are up. It's true when I bought this skirt two seasons ago, and now this pair of sweatpants which I fell in love with at first sight two days ago. I mean, there's always something. And it becomes so still in your mind when you find the one thing you've been looking for for so long without actually looking. Case in point. I've long lusted for a pair of leather sweatpants, the kind that Kanye started. But why didn't I think of Zara for alternatives to the Balmains and Rag & Bones of the world in the first place is a wonder. Luckily, a casual browse on the opening of sales lead me to it and voila, there's my match. Of course pairing it with an equally rad muscle tee is a no brainer, as is for this look. But I have a feeling that this pair and I will have more adventures together, in chicness, in laziness, and what not.


What do you think?

  3. AHHH! CONGRATULATIONS! That's actually an awesome, big deal. LOVE IT. :)

    sweatpants in general are not something I wear. It just never occurs to me to buy them; I lift weights and do yoga in exercise shorts and I lounge in maxidreses so it's never been something I had to shop for. You look fabulous in them, however, so please keep doing your thing. :)

    love,

    The pieces together are great, yet the way it's styled is sort of disgusting. First picture.... Nah.. your angle is so weird I mistook your arm for a chicken wing. Anyways, yayyyyy thanks for the good news though. :D

    1. thank you. at least you took time to look at the photos and give critism. it only shows one thing - that you have nothing else to do but make fun of others. i feel sorry for you. at least i'm putting myself out there with confidence. you however don't even have the decency to show who you are because you'd rather stay anonymous. that, to me is disgusting. you're welcome for the good news.
