Colorblock trapezoid bag

My search for a colorblock bag is finally over. This one from Tacicco hits all my requirements.  It's classic black and white, has a crossbody strap, holds a lot, and is structured as a trapezoid bag.

This patent leather bag features a classic glossy look on one side and a unique texture on the other. The textured side has a bit of sparkle when it catches the right light and also holds a front pocket. There's also a pocket insert that  is removable so you can choose to show off your brand pride, or turn it around to be more discreet.

And as a huge bonus, I've never received better customer service. I emailed asking if the bag would fit a DSLR camera in it. Not only did they reply within 24 hours, but they sent me multiple photos that they took of a camera in the bag. You just don't find personalized service and care like that very often.

Chunky cardigan c/o Chicnova / Burgundy chiffon skirt from Lookbookstore / Blue blouse from H&M 

I go back and forth on how I feel about long chunky cardigans. On one hand, they're really cozy and add some nice dimension. But I'm just not a fan of how they look under short jackets. Layering is a nice look, but only when it's intentional (note: that includes trying to look effortless). Except when I only own short puffy winter jackets that stand up to -10 degrees, the little bit of a cardigan sticking out from under the jacket just looks like a poor piece of fabric that you forgot about and that is now sadly flapping in the wind.

Time to get a watch

In this digital age, I've abandoned the watch for the cell phone. I always have my phone with me and it has become a force of habit to pull out my phone to check the time. To have my wrist constrained by a chunk of round metal seems rather redundant and unnecessary. Which is why I opted for this braided bracelet watch instead of a traditional style.  It's more of an style piece and less of something that I need to know the time.

The problem with the decline of watches is that we're gonna face the disappearance of the timeless "What time is it? Time to get a watch!" joke.  Pun intended. Timeless...because you have no watch. Oh c'mon, someone laugh with me! I am literally cracking up over my own joke over here.

Ice crystals

The prophets and panic that said that the world was gonna end in 2012 were wrong. But they came close. Instead, late 2013 and this bit into 2014 has brought us the polar vortex of bitter cold, snowstorms, and freezing rain. Gotta say that it was kinda cool being in a post-apocalyptic kind of scene with ice covering everything and signs of power outages everywhere. So I've been drawing inspiration from the look of gleaming ice and soft blues lately in the form of sparkly nail polish and jewellery that catches the light.

My subconscious is good at influencing my choices. Like when I saw this sweater, I thought the print was really pretty and the cream mixed with blue was a nice combination. And once I got it, I thought my living room would be a nice setting to take photos. Then I walked into my living room and realized why. This is the exact colour and print of a pair of chairs that sits in my living room. Long story short, I'm imitating a chair. I wasn't just inspired by the chair, I aspired to be the chair. That's great, subconscious...aim high.
