    Peach Mesh Dress (Mesh, Guys. MESH.)


    Who knew I'd like anything mesh? I mean, mesh? MESH?? 

    It was unthinkable, yet made so much sense as an addition to my wardobe. And - surprise surprise - I want more mesh stuff now.


    I had no idea how I would wear it or what I would wear it with but I did know I wanted to wear it somewhere special, so I decided to bring it along to my anniversary trip with Shah in Bukit Tinggi - without much planning, may I add, because I really would have preferred a different pair of shoes to go with the mesh dress. And a different bag. 
    I mean, I look decent here and all, but, still. Remind me to plan out entire outfits next time I go travelling, will yah? 

    Shah and I ended up going to this beautiful serene, calm Japanese garden in the afternoon but I didn't realise how contradictory my outfit would feel to the ambience there initially. Then again, this won't be the first time my outfit mismatches the location (and knowing me and my track record in the lack of early-planning, I know this wont be the last time, either).

    But you have to know one thing about my Eiffel Tower Longchamp Le Pliage: I bought it way, wayyy back in 2013 when I was living in Paris, but it has not been out to see the world since the lady at Longchamp wrapped it up there. How. Freakin'. Amazing. Is that? I mean, such a testament to the power of my hoarding abilities, is it not?
