So while we were in Tokyo I suddenly decided to make a change. I decided that I wanted to dress better. When I first met Shorty I would put more effort into my dressing well.. because I was courting her.
Over the years however that has deteriorated. I started getting lazier and lazier and ended up wearing only t-shirts and jeans for most of my days. Even at work. The jeans I wore… were all baggy.. because I didn’t like how skinny jeans were tight and gave me little room for me to pocket things. I dressed to be comfortable.. not to look good.
It dawned on me I guess that I was being selfish. Shorty never let herself go. She still put in a lot of effort into making herself look good… which in turn makes me look good. So why shouldn’t I look good for her. So I decided to put in more effort.
In Japan I appointed Shorty my “stylist” and we went to shop for a new wardrobe. I started doing #OOTDs on my Dayre and my Instagram and here are the results over the past week.
Shorty loves layering. That means wearing layers on top of one another. I always avoided that because it’s really hot in Malaysia. And heck I did find some shirts that were “fake layering” that means they look like two years but are actually just one. But even then it’s really really hot.
Shorty said however…. “Nobody said fashion had to be comfortable”.
I do think Shorty has great taste though. She knows not just how to match colors and all but also to add something unique but not to go too far. When I tried to add something more… like a neck chain or something she knows how to say… “No… too ah beng”.
My guy friends on the other hand have been wondering if I had fallen ill or something. They think my #OOTD shots and all are really “gay”… in their words. Well I’m not homophobic and in fact I have a lot of friends who are gay…. so being called “gay” for doing something doesn’t really make me wanna stop doing it.
Here’s the last one. Since today is Labor Day I decided to wear something more casual.
But I love the t-shirt. It’s so cute and has this furry thing on the front. Also approved by my stylist. Heh.
I just wonder how long this will last. Hehehe.
What do you guys think of my new style?
PS: Oh… and funny thing right. It’s only one week since I’ve had this new style and I’m already getting clothing brands who are reaching out to me to style and wear their stuff. Haha cool… maybe I can be a fashion blogger. LOL.
