March Haul

As the month passes by, so does the weight within my wallet. Sometimes I don't even see it coming. It's like a disappearing act my money plays on me.

However, unlike the usual magician, my money returns in a different form. In a form of compensation in order to satisfy the empty (and guilty) feeling in my stomach and wallet. Most of the time, it's in the form of lunch. Other times, it's these :



Brown boots from Far East Plaza $15 (it was on sale and the last pair)


Eccentric Structures in Architecture by Joseph Lim $16

A book featuring the structural design ideas behind twisted towers, a pyramid, shadow gallery and chain frame? Okay, so maybe I saw this one coming.

 faux fur leopard mini backpack from Cathay $25

I'm not a huge fan of leopard prints but after re watching Clueless, I kind of admired how Cher Horowitz carried around her faux fur backpack. I also needed a new school bag because apparently carrying around a mini longchamp does not accommodate the needs of an A'level student. Plus it's cute and cheap, pretty easy to give in.

donut from H&M $2.90

AND THIS. I know it doesn't look like much right now. However, this donut soon transformed my hair into this :


This hair style has been floating around youtube with different names ; japanese bun, sock bun, donut bun, i stole your mama and hid it in my bun bun

They're really simple to do and if you can't find a donut, there are plenty youtube DIY vidoes on how to do it with rolled up black socks. However, I find the donut more stable and less heavy compared to socks. I bought mines from H&M kids because the ones in the adult section were way too big and might make me look comparable to a teletubby.

Lastly, this is a dress given from my friend Wiwie out of a random (and extremely generous) decision. I still have no idea why she gave me this. I mean it's laced, it's got a leather collar and cuffs. I didn't know whether to be confused or to go home, find a way to create unicorns, come back to school and hand one over to her. The latter sounds like a more logical response.

I love that Forever21 dress! And, I wish I could use the donut in my hair. For some reason though, I'm all thumbs. Maybe if I could hire someone to show up at my house everyday and put it up into a bun with it... ;)

Cute boots!
