Zara sweater, trousers & boots, Bought in Korea plaid shirt, Givenchy Pandora bag
As Winter (read: wet season) is here, I'm gradually shedding off whites and lighter hues, gravitating towards the realm of blacks and darker shades. Highly influenced by Saint Laurent, I decided to add in a plaid shirt and tied it around the waist to break off my mundane all-black streak (because throwing on another layer is not a really good idea in this humid tropical country). Oh and this bag deserves a mention of its own too. After reevaluating the number of black medium-sized bag in my arsenal, which is approximately zero, it finally struck me and prompted me in prowling the perfect one for daily use. Just like a black leather jacket, a black leather bag serves as a staple piece that fuses the wardrobe together and I have to make sure to invest in one that will last me for years. With that in mind, Pandora somehow fits in the bill perfectly, as its versatility and functional attributes completely won me over. This bag packs a bunch, but beyond everything, I love how it slouches down. Totes win.
