About the only store in our mall that I actually shop in is GAP. It's still not the greatest store, but they sometimes have decent sales. I'm always in there for the sales and their plain T's always fit me pretty well. Once in awhile I'll find a pair of jeans that I like, but you can never tell with that place. One thing I have noticed is the music they play. I have found their music is a lot different than the music you might hear at, say, Marices. (It's a good thing.) I was rummaging my way through the sales rack when I heard a song that sounded pleasantly familiar. I paused, listed a little more (there was music going on in another store and it kinda mixed in with the GAP music). They were actually playing a Camera Obscura song. Not that anyone knows who they are, but they just so happen to be one of my favorite bands. Reminds me a little bit of Belle and Sebastian, but with a girl being the main singer. I have to be in a certain mood to listen to their music, but I have never ever heard their music played in a public place, much less the freakin' mall. Most people I know don't even know remotely who the heck they are. It's a band I happened upon over a year ago and instantly fell in love with. What a lovely diversion. Of course this has nothing to do with anything, but you know I just had to mention it.
Tonight I stumbled across this blog that I like to look at every now and then, which posts pics of people on the street. I like to look at "Street Style" because it's what people actually wear. Not some runway fashion that looks ridiculous that only the highest of highest fashion gods wear. And somehow they can get away with it. Don't ask me how, because a lot of the runway fashions are lacking in a big way. But the main reason I love Street Style is because you will find so so many different styles out there. Some I like, others just aren't me. But that's okay, because everyone has their own style. I noticed this picture, how simple the girl's outfit was, but how perfect. And I had to post it. From that high waisted pencil skirt and the buttons on either side, to that plain white T. It's perfect. She doesn't look like she's trying too hard and she doesn't look like she spent a fortune on her outfit.
I really love how this girl describes her style:
This summer I absolutely adore high-waisted jeans and skirts. I prefer more classical shapes and most of the time less is more. I try to avoid wearing too much jewellery. Price/quality relationship is important to me. I also love window-shopping!
