The Super-Skinny-Jeans State of Mind

The currency of my creative mind tells me that I am obsessed with super skinny jeans. That of from ASOS, I was reluctant to try their stuff as I don’t have the chance to fit them but after several tempting moments, I got down and purchased myself a pair on my birthday(to have an excuse to shop). I must say, I am quite distressed of not receiving an invitation. Corny jokes aside, I was extremely happy about the purchase. I bought their Extremely Super Skinny Jeans line in true blue I suppose. It hugs really tight to your body but you can still sit down without cutting circulation.

Although the fit might not be someone else’s cup of tea, I don’t really care much as I am really satisfied and felt really confident wearing it. That’s the bottom line of fashion. As long as you feel like you can carry yourself with anything, go for it! It didn’t bother me that I might look like a sausage from the extremely tight fit. But pair it with a slightly loose or boxy top to balance out the outfit. To maybe hide out your jewels if it gets really tight.

This isn’t a sponsored post of ASOS. But let me share with that they are having 20% off on regular priced items. You just need to download their mobile app. This promo is available thru mobile only. Just key in MOBILEAPP at checkout. 

A tip for those interested in purchasing a pair of these, if you don’t like a super snug fit but still want this cut just size up about 1-2 sizes. These pair are right up my alley as they don’t flare like most other skinny jeans. It is so unflattering  and uncomfortable when I see my pants flaring like its not supposed to! So, I really recommend this. A must have for me.

How to Get Away with Guilt

Since it was my birth month, I spoiled myself pretty bad. But I thought it was all worth it. Everything was going well until today I decided to count how much I spent last October for myself and the guilt was real. It struck me like thunder and lightning. And I will never allow myself to do more this month or for the coming months! I need to put shackles to myself. Restrain me. Save me.  

In finding ways to make the guilt go away, I have thought ways to keep myself feel better. For instance, rather than losing my wallet, I could have spent it all on something I really wanted. That’s a good one right? Here in Melbourne, inspectors in trams and public transport check myki cards (transportation tickets) and if you get found to be freeloading, you’ll be fined by 200 bucks! So just think of being robbed by a hottie inspector and your guilt may go away. 

I don’t do shopping just to show off or anything. Sometimes or most of the time, I just can’t resist the impulse that commercialism has to offer. Especially for someone like me who is as implusive as Rebecca Bloomwood in Confessions of a Shopaholic. I don’t want to go downward spiral just to get everything that I materially want. If there is even such a word. But when shopping I always don’t pay full price, I go for the sale items which are half off the original price. I mean who can resist a genuine leather jacket for 100 dollars which really fits and you fell in love with right after you saw it and can keep you warm in long winter nights.

Nevertheless, finding reasons to make yourself free of the guilt is not a good thing though. Because in the first place you need to find a reason first of getting a product right before purchasing it. It is not a smart practice to make yourself feel better after splurging. What I usually do is, if I saw a good buy off a rack and my heart starts to pound, I quietly turn away and if my conscience wouldn’t let me sleep today. That’s the time to buy it. But when you get back to get it, it's already gone. You can make a scene.

But hey, It’s my birthday anyway! So sorry not sorry. Right Kim K?

Sneaking to the Top

Sneakers and runners are becoming staple pieces not only for the sporty but for the fashionistas as well. These foot-friendly shoes tries to break the norms and gives us more options in styling our clothes. Women wear their dresses and pair it with Airmax’s or Vans sneakers. The kind of usual scene I see in the streets of Melbourne. I love how this trend is out of the box. You don’t have to conform with the norm. Because that’s what fashion really is.

Love this (top) gold tipped sneakers. The golden touch emanates some sophistication that makes for just an ordinary shoe. It is a showpiece. They look like they are Adidas shoes. 

This sneakers(below) definitely has that clean lines and monochromatic tones to it that gives the expensive appeal to it. What is good in fashion is that you can wear apparently what you feel you like wearing. Unless, you intend on minding on other’s prejudices you will be defeated. So be yourself. Shake it off. Obsessed with black and white.

Meanwhile, let’s enjoy this trend and be happy because we are doing our feet some favour here. Than wearing hard soles and high heels. If you’re into wearing them.

Shopping is the New Yoga

Lately, I am scrambling myself over the web for good finds. Online stores like ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Aliexpress and Zalora have a wide arrays of selection for men. The convenience of not having to work your lower body muscles just to score a best buy in stores is the plus factor for online shopping. And a lot them offers free shipping at a price point which is awesome. Right?

What I usually do when shopping online is to rummage thru the sale tab and start from there. Because you might find some pieces that you have been lusting for forever only to find them on sale! I also make rounds and check working discount coupons online that can save you some bucks.

Meanwhile in ASOS, I was going gaga over these pair of gladiators! Since its about to get hotter here in the Southern Hemisphere, this is a good addition to my wardrobe. These are perfect to pair up with shorts and a dressier top to get that casual chicness I see mostly in the streets here in Melbourne. It retails at AUD $57.

Also, this ASOS cropped extreme super skinny jeans is a staple and a must have. My favourite skinnies from Oxygen is getting worn off already so I might be putting this in the cart already! And ASOS is having a 70% off sale and an additional 10% off on top of that, you just need to key in 10MORE as promo code! This is about AUD $38 on sale plus a 10% off of that which I thought is a  pretty good deal. Splurge now here or regret later!

 This Penshoppe shirt(below) is from another online store called Zalora. I am quite amazed at the wide selection of Mens shirts there. Plaids are all the rage right now and to play up on the grunge fest especially for those having the fall season right now- this is definite fall must have! So stock up on these. You can style this just by tying  it around your waist and just wearing a statement tee and skinny jeans. 

I am in love with this contrast sleeves shirt from 24:01(below). It looks so sleek and expensive (it is affordable at AUD$30 or Php 1199). Simply dress it up with those tailored chinos or dress it down wearing shorts. I’m obsessed!

Splurge now or regret later! Take a look at Zalora’s big range of men’s shirts here

Whilst online shopping does not allow us to do what yoga is supposed to do but your horizon for available markets is going to get a stretch. I shall leave you then guys and I have a lot of stretching to do! xox
