Stressed But Well Dressed

March 24, 2014
Has it only been four days since I arrived in Kuala Lumpur? 

Between then and now I feel like an eternity has spanned, or rather, the distress and trials of the past week have borne on my shoulders, weighing me down like the proverbial celestial sphere condemned to Atlas. 

Today is a new day and a new week. I'm restoring to factory settings, wiping all the bugs from and clearing all the bad memories from my hard drive. Now begins a busy week packed with social events---Malaysian Grand Prix, F1 parties, Zouk 10 year anniversary, a Hennessey X.O meet and greet, Mercedes-Benz Stylo Grand Prix (aka F1 fashion week),  and a very exciting meeting with one of my favourite glossy magazines. 

Here's to finishing with a flourish the last week of March. March on. 

It's no exaggeration when I say that my zeitgeist de semaine is 'Stressed But Well Dressed'. 

Zara 'Stressed but well dressed' clutch / Saint Laurent Arty ring / Mango mint skinnies / House of Eight mesh top / Chanel 'Brick' inspired iPhone case from a little stall in Times Square / Gucci heels / Chanel nail vernis '559 Frenzy'

There's nothing so soothing for the nerves as pastel colours.

From these pictures it is evident that I am in desperate need of--- 

a) the perfect white heels to compliment all my pastels and Spring wardrobe 
b) a steam cleaner because every crease and wrinkle I go over with an iron is minutes of my life I will never get back.  
c) a dye job. My once jet-black hair has faded from bleach abuse and sun damage. In 2012 I bleached my hair a heroic six times in six months. Since then my hair has never quite been the same.

That two tone hair, oh my God, I can't deal with it. 

I swear it's not nearly as bad in person, you can barely tell, but under the unforgiving tropical light all things are magnified.

Thank you Nana xiao mei mei for patiently taking hundreds of photos for me until we got the right ones. Yes, hundreds. Asians at work haha. I am so happy to have a little sister who is every bit the emotional, vain, big-hearted, and loving Leo that I am. Nana! Please remember and take heed of my advice. This is the right time, I know you can do it. I'm looking forward to seeing much much much more of you, if you know what I mean. brave! Jia you!

      I'm going to hold a memorial service for it and wait at least 6 months before replacing it.
