Lately I've developed a habit of hiding my thrift shop purchases from my mother because she doesn't truly get it why I have to have a lot of clothes and shoes more than I can wear. Probably it irritates her to have a lot more dresses to alter in the sewing machine, more clothes to wash and a lot more to organize in the closet. Because quite frankly I am notorious in the house for being too disorganized (per my own mother). Although I'd like to call it an organized chaos.
If there's someone in the house who understands my love for clothes it would have to be my father. He's a clothes-freak like me and I love to scour at his closet once in a while (or probably every chance I can get) when he isn't looking and steal some of his shirts, belts, and leather bags. Hahaha
Take for example this peach shirt and leather belt. He has forgotten of its existence (probably because it got lost in his multitude of shirts)until he saw me wearing it.

And for those who asked about the lens I used during the HK trip, it was a Tamron 17-50 mm f2.8 lens.
And my boss took all the photos with the ones with me on it.:)

I love everything you're wearing. Gosh, you have such lovely and amazing sunkissed photos! I can relate, I do online thrift business which my mom doesn't approve of, I hide all my new thrift loots from her just the same and it's my dad who understands what I'm doing. :)

fortunately, my whole family is a fashion hoarder so yeah, we shop (or ukay) a lot..hahaha. :D i think it came from my grandma whom i was told collected too many shoes too...but yes, i understand how doing laundry can be a pain in the ass. so we make up for it by selling our other clothes regularly...:D
