Wow, today's been a really long day... Went out at 10.15 to Chatuchak via MRT*, and then we took the MRT back to Sukhumvit and transferred to BTS to Phrom Pong for a sumptuous lunch at Greyhound Cafe
in Emporium -deliiiicious!-and some awesome book-hunting** at Kinokuniya... then went back to Robinson's, where their TOPS supermarket has been freshly renovated and we did some grocery shopping. Finally arrived home slightly after 4...
* Was strangely controlled. Or maybe it was because my parents didn't like a lot of the stuff I did, like this gorgeous red leather bag with a gold exposed zipper. It was very plain, and oddly roomy, and I could imagine bringing it hiking around Singapore (my dream street-style life! oh, *big sigh*). But sadly my parents didn't like it. At all. For no reason. (I think it was the zipper that did the bag in. Too... unconventional
, shall we say?)
Anyway- I only bought a chunky pearl, metal and bead necklace
for 250 Baht (it's sooo chunky my dad says I can take it apart and have 3 or more separate necklaces when I'm sick of the whole but I don't see that in the near future!!!) and two adjustable ring... templates?
at 50 Baht for me to stick my stones from Rayong on, so I can DIY my own rings.
** Am equally excited about my two buys here. Could not buy Christian Siriano's book, Fierce Style, because even though it had 20% off, the original price was already 600+ Baht so hopeless wishing... and I wanted to buy another book but my dad said it didn't look like much... anyway
, to focus on the positive
, I boughtCamilla

andAll The Things We Didn't Say
by Sara Shepard (of Pretty Little Liars
Once I'm through with Sense and Sensibility
(which I'm close to... I'm either in Volume II or III right now) I am going to devour these two quite voraciously!
Inspired by Jane Aldridge's "My Style" collage post on Sea of Shoes
I might create my own collage. I'm predicting fairy-tale classiness (i.e. Marchesa y Chanel) with just a few leather jackets and grommets in between... Last time Laeticia asked me what my style was, and I said, "Feminine with an edge." (Well, at least my ideal style
is- I think my own real style would be "really weird with many faux-pases"! I never seem to know what's right for me.)
But right now I'm going to do a blue palette inspired by Zooey Deschanel in (500) Days of Summer
. Her outfits in the movie are all in blue shades, very simple and feminine.
