I am pretty proud of myself for blogging more regularly lately.
I always imagine another my inside my head talking myself as i engulf into a heated discussion, so why not have then penned down to refer back when i am slightly more clear-minded (sounds pretty creepy if i reading this not knowing the eccentric Kristal i can be sometimes)
Been doing StapleStatement more dilligently lately and i am thankful for the discipline to brave through disappointment & disappointment again. It's strange how i feel so useless sometimes, then other times i pick myself up to give it another shot. Times & again i kept the saying from Jamue etched inside so deeply "this first year is the hardest, the first year is the hardest, the first year is the hardest....... "
And the chanting goes on and on, and in order to ensure i can sustantiate this risky hobby of mine, i am down to saving almost zero savings (apart from the monthly fix bills and loan i am paying off) and spending it all on the tiny dream i am building. Concern friends are telling me the risk i am putting myself into, but me being stubborn as usual, decides to move with my gut feeling & try to brave it through.
Afterall, (negative thinking argh.... go away) its not like i haven fail before, but i pick myself up rather fast ... so let me fall & rise again this time, along with the other bad times :)
Thankfully for the people around me really, bbbbb had been especially supportive as he was also the one that had spark the start of this dream. I dont think i have talked about how it all happened, but here's the shortest ever summary - one fine day bbbb took out a portion of his savings, throw me a challenge because he knew i cannot afford to lose, and there i was, getting all serious and hyped up about StapleStatement. We use to date all weekend long (we still do hurhur) doing nothing & aiming for our future together years later, but with the addition of this little project, most weekend talks & discussion are on strategy on making SS work. i dare not say i have put in my fullest, and bbbb definitely didnt want to play a major part in this project. So for now i am only trying, but i know one day i will see the light, cos every small steps is a step closer to achieving what i want :)
Oh, and did i tell you? This does not come cheap, apart from the very very important portion of capital pumped in by bbbbb, i have also been pumping in my monthly salary into making this work, we have to pinch ourselves as we quote the price of our clothes at the cheapest, but this was one of my main point of setting up SS, i never believe in spending big bucks on clothing but have a wardrobe full of clothes all neatly folded waiting to be worn, i never liked buying expensive clothes anyway since i care too little to handwash them in order to keep it perfect. So SS is like a dream i am building, the sort of clothing i will like to wear, affordable, easy to keep away, easy to put on and wont burn your pocket. i want to live by that goal when building SS, i hope i wont regret the low price ever, because frankly, i haven't regretted a single budgeted purchase i own thus far :)
In the latest collection 4 for the month of May are several colorful picks i have accumulated, there is a second part to it but we couldnt rush the photoshoot in time to have it launched fully. Here are some of my favorite pick, tried, tested & fits well for a UK8-10 me :)
Now i am determine to don them on one day and show you how i would rather have it done!! Nevertheless, the SS ladies prettify them so well i had to post the pictures :)
i dont want to post too many outfit here cos it will be equivalent to me liking all of them (i admit i love them all lah, if not why i bring it in to sell?!?!) .. this is a personalized blog, can friends pleaase remind me to put them on and give a clearer idea on how it would look like on a not-so-perfect body (XT wears a UK 4-6 & Ju wears UK6-8) like mine.... standing at ONLY 152cm (without heels) and UK8...... shortie wear!!!~
....anyway.. i am off to bestie's new place later this afternoon to check out the reno & create some mess! I love how bestie & bestie-in-law's lives are well in placed & how the house came at a perfect timing. If they shall permit i will post some pictures of the new BTO empty & unfurnish, as i progress with their renovation. MAYBE you will soon see how a typical BTO can be beautify as 2person work on it with their magic fingers :)
