Girl’s Not Grey

Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators (can you tell by now that these are my favorite? lol)
Earrings: Call It Spring Gunmetal Triangle Stud Earrings
Top: Zara Grey Muscle Tee
Jeans: H&M Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans (hauled here)
Bag: Milano Padlock Black Leather Cross-Body Micro Bag (purchased from Debenhams)
Shoes: Multi-Color Bandage Wrap Sandals (purchased from one of the open-air vendors in Thailand)

I was supposed to get my picture taken so I could renew my passport and get issued a new driver’s license (‘cuz I lost my old one and kinda’ needed a new one asap because I’d gotten into a fender-bender). I didn’t wear any makeup except for the Givenchy Lip Balm (haulage here) and no jewelry apart from a pair of delicate stud earrings. When the guy took my photo, I was like “Who is this monster?” (kidding! The flash on the camera – or maybe it was just his camera settings – washed me out and I’ve already got sallow skintone, to begin with, so I looked pretty sickly). I told him to trash the photo and that I’d just come back later. The “plan” was to put a little bit of makeup on, for next time, but somehow, I ended up with a “beat face” (I blame RuPaul’s Drag Race)!

London Blues

Hair Accessory: Boots Black Velvet Scrunchie (hauled here)
Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators
Top: H&M I♥H81 Dark Blue London Top
Jeans: H&M Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans (hauled here)
Bag: New Look Black Leather-Look Buckle Saddle Bag
Shoes: Karmaloop Studded Black Wedge Sneakers

So, I’m somewhat of an Anglophile. I love British Telly! In fact, one of my favorite movies of all time is Green Street Hooligans (based on football hooliganism). I also enjoy watching everything from Sherlock and Black Mirror to Outlander and The Inbetweeners. Honestly, everything just sounds better with an accent. I simply adore the London accent (Cockney Rhyming Slang) and literally everything the main lead said in the movie The Kingsman sounded ridiculously cool to me, but I’m quite partial to a Geordie accent as well. There was this one show (discontinued, I believe) called Aliens… My God, it had me in hysterics from the on-set and throughout! British humor just slays me! It’s so dry and witty and I love it!

With that being said, I’m completely, hopelessly and wholeheartedly obsessed with British Reality TV Shows! I recently became a huge fan of Big Brother (UK), but I’ve watched Geordie Shore and The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent and so on, from the very start. You name it, I’ve watched it. My current drug of choice is a reality show called Love Island. It’s like a train-wreck that I just can’t look away from, so… pretty much crack! I’ve got a handful of Brit friends (in Kuwait) who actually can’t stand that stuff. Another thing I find fascinating about the Brits is their attitude! I’ve come across several large groups of Brits while abroad, and they always seem to be in a jovial mood (granted they were three sheets to the wind), and they’d literally break out into song, out of nowhere! I come across a lot of Brits online (Xbox One) as well, and their sense of humor is the best! I’ve been to the UK about 4-5 times and I’ve enjoyed every single trip, so far! For all those reasons above and more (but I won’t go too much into it now) I classify myself as somewhat of an Anglophile.

Shaolin Shuffle

Hair Accessory: Boots Black Velvet Scrunchie (haulage here)
Sunglasses: Red Aviators (purchased at a random store abroad in 2015)
Outerwear: Zara Floral Embroidered Shirt (haulage here)
Top: Zara Black TRF Polo Shirt (purchased in 2006 – not 2016 – 2006)
Trousers: H&M Burgundy Overdyed Twill Trousers (haulage here)
Shoes: Studded Black Wedge Sneakers (purchased online from either PLNDR or Karmaloop in 2012)

Shaolin Shuffle is actually one of the DLC maps in COD (if you didn’t understand any part of that sentence, don’t worry about it). The Zara Floral Embroidered Shirt (haulage here) – which as I said, looks like a cross between a Kung Fu Master’s Outfit and a Cheongsam (Traditional Chinese Dress) – was the inspiration behind the title of this post. I love this thing! It’s all long and flowy and just so cool!

Unfortunately, it’s a bit difficult to see (in detail), due to the horrible lighting in my bedroom. Everything looks much darker than it actually is. In reality, the Aviators have a bright red frame, whereas the Trousers are actually burgundy. I insisted on having dimmers and this (insufficient lighting) was the end result. At this point, it’s safe to say that I’m pretty much hopeless when it comes to this whole “Outfit of the Day” thing lol

Safari Style

Hair Clip: Scünci
Aviators: Louis Vuitton
Earrings: Call It Spring
Bracelet: Call It Spring
Watch: Aldo
Shirt Dress: H&M (haulage here)
Thong Sandals: H&M

Another Outfit of the Day post, except it was in the same day as my last Outfit of the Day post (I really am terrible at this) and I only switched out the Kaftan for a Dress and my Heels for Flats, so I could go out in the evening. I’m wearing the Shirt Dress (hauled here) that I got for my imaginary Safari Trip. Look at how cool it looks on the model in the photo and then compare it to how it looks on me and my 5’1 frame lawl That said, I like the H&M Olive Green Shirt Dress and that’s all that matters, right? (Right!) It took me a beat to find appropriate footwear, but in the end I settled on the H&M Thong Sandals. Now all I need is a Topless (convertible?) Jeep, to complete the look ^_~

Bershka Haul

I actually didn’t do much shopping for clothes this Winter. However, when I went back to Promod to pick up my Maxi Jersey Skirt (hauled here) after some alterations (it had to be shortened lawl) at Marina Mall, I spotted the Sales Assistant hanging up (meaning they were super new) the coolest Biker Jackets of life, over at Bershka! I made a bee-line towards the gorgeous jacket, all the while making excited cooing and squealing noises. Once I reached the magnificent jacket I just sorta’ gazed up at it reverently, while still making cooing noises, up until the Sales Assistant deigned to assist me with a “May I help you?”

After that got sorted, he pawned me off (I suspect my craziness eccentricity made him feel a wee bit uncomfortable) on a female Sales Assistant, who was way more eager to help (she did her job with such gusto!) making my experience at Bershka… a much more enjoyable one! I walked away with a stunning Biker Jacket, an insanely cool Biker Waistcoat, and a ridiculously adorable Furry Hooded Jacket! Sure, I plunked down KD 53/800 but you can’t put a price on cool (actually… kinda’ just did, but whatever, just go with it). Also, like I said earlier, I haven’t done much shopping for Winter stuff (justification). Also, everything I got really was just so cool! I think… I’m kinda’ in love with Bershka now!

Promod Clothing Haul

I was all the way on the other side of Marina Mall, the side I rarely frequent, the sea-side facing front of Marina Mall. It was the side that had Cinnabon and Decathlon located next to each other (lawl). I was actually there to purchase a Gift Certificate from Decathlon as a Birthday Gift for a friend (who was more than a little obsessed with fitness and exercise). Once I got what I’d came for, I figured I could hotfoot it all the way to the opposite end of Marina Mall (all the way to the back) to check out MAC and Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret (which were so very conveniently bunched together).

No sooner had I taken a step in that direction, when I spotted the most darling sweater of all time! It was all white (Ecru) with a sweet black ribbon at the back and everything! I just had to try it on. Once I set foot in the store, I noticed my beloved Red and Blue (Navy and Burgundy) Striped Print on a jumper and grabbed that to try on too. In fact, I found a multitude of truly lovely pieces at the french boutique, Promod. Unfortunately, as with most European Clothing Stores, most of the stuff dwarfed my 5’1 frame and just fit all weird on me. That said, I still managed to walk away with a Black Maxi Jersey Skirt (which had to be significantly shortened) and the softest Cable-Knit Jumpers of life!
