Stripes, Studs, Ribbons, and Tiers2/20/2013 06:27:00 PM
Midterms is finally done, and stress levels have gone down again. At least, for now. I can't say I feel fulfilled with my progress, but I'm definitely sure I should do better for the second half of my term. It's not over yet! There's still time for redemption! (ﾉ◕△◕)ﾉ～*:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ Aja! Fighting!
How different do I look when I change the position of my bangs? What do you think? :-/

Full bangs. I personally prefer full bangs since it looks "edgier". At least, I think it does (o___o')

The other day, one of my close friends from high school, Pattee, asked me if I ever ran out of clothes to wear. Truth be told, I do have days when I literally run out of clothes to wear for school (*gasp* oh. my. gosh. such a shocker, ain't it? har har!). Sometimes, when I'm feeling like going for my jeans on lazy days, I look in my closet and I see no jeans available (oh the horror). So I do the next best thing: find the Basics in my closet and try to make them work!
Exhibit A: my outfit. Wearing mostly neautrals and one bold color can still make you look well put-together. Investing in Basics will always come in handy for those sudden "I should've done the laundry two days ago!" situations and on emergencies.
In-coming question: Won't wearing Basics make me look bland? My answer: No, as long as you mix and match them properly. It also helps when your Basics have little things that make them interesting (i.e: color, cut, etc.). Just because they're called Basics doesn't mean they have to be boring.
Exhibit B: my vest, bag, and socks. Anyone can wear a plain black vest with pockets. It's the same as wearing a plain black cardigan or shirt. But with the studs decorating it, my vest looks edgier and more chic, yes? Same goes for my bag. As for my socks.. white socks are never gonna go out of style. Everyone has at least a pair of white socks in their drawers (don't deny it!). But with the added ruffle and ribbon on the ones I'm wearing, it gave my look a sprinkle of femininity and girly-ness to it as opposed to just "simple school girl". Dickies and Fila are geniuses for selling these babies! My sock drawer is practically filed with their products already may it be plain or fun! I'm definitely one satisfied loyal customer. :)
So the next time you run out of things to wear, no fear! Grab those Basic investments and have a little fun playing mix-match, and you'll be confidently walking out the front door in no time! :)
