BROWN BASICS

Shopping. verb ( shopped |ˈʃɑpt|, shopping |ˈʃɑpɪŋ|)
1 [ intrans. ] go to a store or stores to buy goods.

It's not just girls who do it; but every it's an activity that everyone does. Even when your mom buys groceries, that IS an act of shopping. Now, the only difference lies within how each individual use up their budget. My guy, for example, chooses to spend his on anything car related. As for me, I don't think that I need to tell you what I spend mine on (it's fashion and food if you still haven't recognized). However, within the fashion range, I tend to divide that up again. Some of you might start thinking "Shoe or bags is it?". The answer to that is "Yes.... and no". Other than those two, I also like stocking up on quality basics.

Basics, to certain people, may be one of the things they save on. However, from my own experience, investing in well-crafted ones will take you a long way. After all, they're pieces that you can constantly wear from season to season. Just a little bit of accessorizing and those basics look just as good as new. They may look exactly the same as those "3 for $10" packs, but I tell you, once you put them on, you'll notice the difference. I'm not saying that you have to spend a fortune on it but you can "invest" some time finding the right one for you. Everyone has got a different body, so one brand will not work well for the whole nation. Today, I'd like to share this simple yet classic dress from WALK-IN-CLOSET. It's neutral in color (hello to 'remixes' of this dress!), and it's only Rp 189,000. Not bad at all for a dress made with comfortable fabric and good cut.

no idea how it happened but my hair-tips look like it's gone under some slight-ombre dying process. there wasn't even any sun (which makes my hair color look different in photos and real life) during the time I shot these photos.

Dress by WALK IN CLOSET, prada shoes

for those who are in need of color, this same dress is also available in bright red! pair with black pumps and clutch for a night out, or dress is down for day with a long cardigan and bright flats in contrasting hues. and if you're looking for separates, WALK-IN-CLOSET also stocks up other basics such as the striped top and white shorts below!

This (so timelessly appealing) brown color (obviously) is made to dazzle through Fall's atmosphere, AND your bloody(licious) polished toes far to be accessory in terms of day-to-day Sensuality . . .

hey michelle! You look great! You're right, i do invest on basics as well because it can last years and will never go out of style (e.g. crisp white polo).

ediot said...

oh shopping is sort of dangerous to me. it's best for me not to think about the opportunities.. because as soon as I find something i want- i want more than that as well.. ebay-shopped a week ago. just wanted one item. but here i am with three new pieces of clothing instead.. oh i need to stop this behaviour. it's not good at all.
adore your outfit girl
and these are great photos.
