First and foremost, thank you all for the birthday greetings on my previous post. As much as I'd rather you didn't think I'm blatantly advertising my non-celebratory day, it feels pretty good to read your wonderful comments. So thank you!
As it is.
My aunt says the cool autumn wind usually comes around on my birth-month, a thought that has never occurred to me since I hardly ever believe that Macau's weather can be predicted. But as it turns out, she's about right. The past few days had been but warm and sunny. Suddenly everybody's sporting a cold, sweaters out, and I'm back to wearing jackets from the men's department. It excites me a little, except for the fact that it will become a little harder to shoot yet again in all this grayness. But nevertheless, I'm slightly thrilled all the same.
But what grey when the sun's brightly shining on you? You wonder.
Well truth be told, these were taken several days back when we still had the sun out. Et voila, my almost-dull-looking outfit to work, save for the bag. The thing is, this laurel shirt isn't done justice in these photos because it does look more vivid and less gray in reality. So no, this isn't a grey on grey on black ensemble (which come to think of, doesn't sound so bad either). Besides, I do think menswear inspired is sort of my forte and in all fairness I look put together anyway, no? I'll leave you all to decide.
