“Above everything else, genuinely love yourself first. Self-love is powerful and it’s the best love that you will ever have. When you love who YOU are, your relationships will be healthier and your life will be happier. Self-love sets the standard in how we allow others to treat us and how we treat ourselves. Your happiness and well-being is important. Protect it by always valuing who you are!” ― Stephanie Lahart
“I could walk a mile in your shoes, but I already know they’re just as uncomfortable as mine. Let’s walk next to each other instead…” ― Lynda Meyers
I have more or less a hundred pair of shoes in my closet. A few of them have been left broken for some time now. I’ve been thinking of having them fixed or fixing them myself but it’s either I don’t have time or procrastination is just too irresistible. And yep, I’m engaged with the last one ATM. I’m piled up with work but my mind refuses to cooperate. Oh, help me Lord please..
OOTD features my Primadonna shoes I purchased two years ago. They got broken last year and were left unrepaired since then. Last night, I managed to fix the shoes and luckily wore them this afternoon. Too bad though because it rained heavily so I had to be really careful not to put too much pressure on my feet so it would last. Thank God, no embarrassing shoe moments happened and I was able to go home with my soles still intact. But I promised to make time and extra money to have all my broken shoes repaired.

Purple Personality – You dislike being part of the crowd, wishing to stand apart from the mob – you like to be noticed for your individuality. You don’t like to copy others and you don’t like them to copy you.
If there’s one color that best describes me, it’s purple (as quoted above). It’s not my favorite color but today’s outfit post obviously features the shade of purple or violet.
All of my favorite clothes are still in the laundry shop so I’ve got no choice today but to choose among the clothes that I least use in my closet. And this is what I came up with – aztec lavender prints, violet skirt, maroon shoes, all in violet shades!
Personal tips on wearing purple:
1) Make sure the accessories you choose combine well with the shade of purple you decide to wear.
The purple pieces that I am wearing today are light enough but I decided to pair it with a simple silver watch and rings to give a minimal look. But you can be a little playful with light purples by combining it with light yellow, pink or green accessories.
2) BIG NO NOs: a) Dark shades of purple during summer. b) Dark makeup on dark purples.
What about you, lovelies? I would love to hear how you wear purple outfits.
