What it feels like

[Skirt and sweater : from local stores in Hong Kong][Boots : local store][Basg : Nessa][Watch : c/o bornpretty][Bag : Nessa][Necklace : Cotton On]

OK, forget the haul for now, I'll do that sometime soon. It's a little impossible for me to resist not wearing what I recently scored and take photos with the first chance I got, which is exactly what I did. More so, I can't hold back sharing the results so here they are =). Can't help it. I'm like a little girl when it comes to having new stuff; the shallow happiness it gives, making me giddy giddy. You have to agree, we're all materialists one way or another, and it so happens that my interests lie in clothes. That satisfying feeling.

So here's the ice-breaker - black sweater and electric printed skirt. I know what you're thinking, its another monotonous outfit. But it's the sleekness, you see. Minimalism in effect.  The sweater may be just another plain black sweater, but the glossy quilted detail on the shoulders gave it so much edge and made all the difference. Talk about Givenchy inspired, I think it's the ultimate black sweater investment to make, only for a fraction of a high-end streetwear brand price. And don't get me started on the skirt - the print, the structure, the length, the way it bounces - when I saw it at the store, I knew I found love at first sight. 

Now, while we're on the topic of discussing new stuff, I'll take it this moment to show you this cute "treble clef" watch that the kind people at bornpretty sent to me recently (thank you!). Besides it being a little to loose for my skinny wrists, I simply love it because it screams me, leather, gold, music and all. I mean, I'm not a watch person (unless it's one of those gold-plated Michale Kors that I've been coveting for so long), you can tell because I barely ever change my casio save for the occasional accessory watches I steal from my mom's store. This, however, is a great alternative which I can now replace my casio with. 

Well, I guess I've written enough for today so I'll stop now and leave you to enjoy the rest of this set. Oh, and I'll still do the haul, don't fret. There's still plenty to show ya'll! =)
