Some problems with buying clothes off the rack



Problem #1 : When you prefer the back to the front

Decided to wear this Seed romper backwards . Why ?
Because , I don't really fancy round collars besides , I think the yellow poppy design is quite rarely seen , so that did it really .

Of course , when you decide to do this , some might think you've gone nuts . A short explanation will do . Because if they also own a piece at home , they'll still think you've gone loco .
The keyword boils down to " confidence " when you take this step .



Problem #2 : The " Who Wore It Better ? "nightmare

Silly jacket season


We learn a new thing every single day don't we ?
This jacket below is called a Shacket .
Yup .
S-H-A-C-K-E-T .

Why ?
Because it's a cross between a shirt and a jacket ( rolls eyes ) .
Say you decide to get one too , you can either go oversized ( which I think makes me look huger than I already am ) or go for a closer fit , which suits me .

9 white , 4 not


Nothing beats an extended weekend . It gives you more time to go ahead and earnestly get down to whatever you've been wanting to plough more effort into , which in my case , is to extend my wardrobe with more sized down casual wears , since I actually live near a beach .

 Considering how difficult they are to maintain , as well as my preference towards black , I'm surprised that I've begun picking up white pieces of clothing .

Listing down the haul below .

Playsuit payoff


Sunday afternoon was spent on retail therapy , picking out new togs out of store racks .
Once again , I found myself gravitating towards Cotton On where I had to this time , being a weekend , contend with very excited Thai bargain hunters who seemed to swoop up sports bras by the basket loads ! They're probably business women cos I don't know any exercise freak who will buy that many sports bras at one go , at least not yet .

Ah , but my intention to enter this store , has swayed from focus on their activewear and now that all the effort  is slowly paying off  ( but still a big girl mind you ) , I'm moving on . 
Of course , I could find a million faults to fret over my unperfect body but what's the point in that eh ? 

Ended up picking 2 playsuits and a 2 piece combo all in . What I consider my personal payoffs for all the time poured into my workouts .

Winged throwback to the 70s and 90s


This is the second bird print I'm getting this year . The first was a macaw print tights from Cotton On , which you can find in a backpost  .
Now this . A pink parrot which I find so quirky .

3 firsts towards a minier me


 This is the first miniskirt I'm purchasing in a really long time .
It's taken between 8 to 9 months to come to this stage .
My tummy has gone down half the size it previously was without any loose skin problem . There's long term results for you . 

Koochi moochi is probably not going to approve but because I live in Penang , the one place in Malaysian where older women of my age and beyond still dare to don such garb , I'm going right ahead and gonna pour myself into one anyway .

Not just any mat


Have you ever seen a gold yoga mat ?
 I sure haven't . Anyway , since I just began to incorporate exercise into my life from last December , inevitably yoga will be a natural progression . Don't care if it has been in the market far back as 2016 ( what the production date on the label says ) but I sure want one for myself ! 
Where did I get this from ? Body by Cotton On . Bag not included .

Cotton On Body


Orange seems to be my new favourite colour nowadays . 
There are just so many shades to choose from I can't believe it ! 

From pastels , to candy shades and bright fluorescents , when I spot them on the rack , I go a bit nuts after that .

Cotton On - muscle tee , tank top


When it comes to my activewear , I love to dress in a riot of colours .
Plus I'm beginning to explore other stores for more variety , such as Cotton On , where I found these two called the Coar Coar Power Mesh Tank in Blue Light and Coar Performance Muscle Tee in Yellow Heather .
