The In Between
I always term the period after Christmas and before Chinese New Year as the In Between because that's when I start mini stockpiling new purchases in the wardrobe, look at them longingly and tell myself to just wait a little while before I'm able to wear them for the Chinese New Year ... because I'm old school lah, must have new stuff for the lunar new year ;)
This peach lacy skater dress from Forever 21 was such a steal at only RM39 on sale.Hubs wrinkled his nose and asked why am I wearing a tablecloth.
I have to avoid walking into Miss Selfridge at Gurney Plaza now. Every time I pop in, telling myself sternly that I'm just browsing, I seem to come out with my wallet lighter and a bag in my hand. I've been looking for more dressier casual tops (is that an oxymoron?) so this embellished striped top checked all the boxes.
I've to admit that I am - or rather my knees are - feeling my age. In my 20s, I wore nothing but 3" heels and reluctantly hung up my strappy stilettos when I was in my 2nd trimester with Bubs. In my mid 30s, my back is paying the price now and I'm resorting to more sensible *ahem* footwear. Topshop ballet flats are the comfiest shoes ever and I've gone through heaps of pairs. These Charles and Keith peeptoes sandals in black patent should hopefully match most of my wardrobe :)
