TO - 01/30 - the cold didn’t catch me unguarded today…

TGIF!!!
Friday's coming down on us, all wrong and warm, just like someone's body. Friday's not like the other days of the week, it can't be ignored, it can't be pressed away, it can't be worked apart at the office, it just has to be embraced. Friday is so alive, it is almost human. It deteriorates our sense of time, it mixes our sense of eternity.
Friday is (religiously) heavy, (socially) relieving, (astrologically) erotic, (superstitiously) frigid, (culturally) equivocal.
It is "somebody" to challenge.
Somebody to conquer and take over. Or somebody to surrender to. Either way, Friday requires a personal treatment.
So can you feel it?

Layers, hat and gloves is the best strategy for when temperature is dropping.
And I think it's unanimous, that we all put on layers for being in the cold, starting with an “underwear shirt” that will keep us warm and would not be too stiff.
So today I wore one, a red one. Yes, also my “underwear shirt” has to be colourful. *big laugh*

black boots - local store
black skinny pants - Vero Moda
hot pink turtleneck - Zara
black thin belt - from a skirt
bordeaux blazer (cropped sleeves) - mainland store
furry vest - Tally Weijl
black scarf - United Colours of Benetton
gray handbag - Mango
black hat - mainland store
watch necklace - DIY
bracelet - gift from Hubby (Tie Rack)
cocktail ring - gift from Hubby
lipstick - Esté Lauder
perfume - Noa from Cacharel

  15. First off thank you so much for the award! <3

    I loved your "ode to Friday". I don't like Fridays that much though, because at school, they're totally senseless. I come to school for the two most useless subjects in my schedule. But anyway. I love all days of the week :D

    How cold is it over there? Here it's cold too! You made me laugh about your underwear shirt! My mum is always pressing me to wear one, and I think I will -- a colourful one!!

    Kisses and Hugs,
    Cate

  39. Hi Seeker!!!

    You are the embodiment of "cute" in the first picture! ^_^
    On a different note, I love your little essay on Friday: especially the line line with all the adverbs and adjectives. It's a line I feel I should just memorize because it's so well-written and so thoughtful. Wow.

    xoxo
