I sometimes feel like a dichotomy, because if possible, I would spend half of my time swathed in high tech workout gear (oh spandex, my love) and the other half in evening wear. Everything in between is really not as interesting...
Unfortunately, I can think of only a few lifestyles for which this is possible (trophy wife, hostess, beauty pageant contestant) and none appeal. Kind of a pity, I have the perfect shape for highly structured evening gowns... a girl can dream, right?
Anyhooo, returning to reality. Everyone deserves a bit of dazzle from time to time... especially if it is inexpensive!
My favorite nail style is this dipped-in-gold look. When I lived in London my awesome nailist came up with several different variations on this style, and I had them on heavy rotation. I am currently being the guinea pig (but a guinea pig with faaabulous nails) for a nailist-in-training, so it is cheap! For professional and koto-related reasons I cannot have overly long, heavily decorated nails, but somehow I only feel properly dressed if I have some shine on my hands... Man, have I acculturated or what? 笑
I have some issues finding shoes that not only fit, but that I also like. Everything in 25cm seems to be either earthmothery, grandmotherly, or just too plain for words. Thank god for Singapore and its huge expat community. I found these adorable creations in Bugis, and am very pleased. I mean really, there are bows on the bows!
The rainy season has begun, along with a slew of work events I have to organize, confirm, attend and generally fuss about. Hopefully there can also be some time for fun in there as well!
