May napansin ako.
I have so many clothes, watches, shoes and bags but I just often use the following:
- … either black Nine West high heeled shoe or the Tory Burch black flats when at the office..
- … my white Keds sneakers when going to our site visit..
- … my black Uniqlo legging pants..
- … my 2 pairs of Levi’s skinny jeans..
- … my pair of American Eagle Outfitters distressed jeans..
- … my big black Tory Burch bag..
- … either my black and gold Technomarine watch for the office or the white Luminox watch when I do site visits..
Paulit ulit lang ako diyan sa mga yan every day.
What do this mean?
Hindi ko yan inenumerate diyan para ipagyabang that I have those things. Kayang kaya niyo din magkaroon ng ganyan: sipag, tiyaga, ipon and minsan, katakot takot na lambing lang ang katapat. What I would like to share with you is I realized, parang you do not need so many things in your life. For me, buhay na ako diyan sa mga yan. Regarding tops, napapadalas na white V-neck shirts na lang ang suot ko lagi apart from my semi business attire tops that I wear.
Pakshet. Tumatanda na siguro ako. I am finally maturing materialistically.
I have so many things because I like buying them. But in the end, ngayong nag-aanalyze na ako, ang daming kong things that I do not use. I just buy because.. umm… because.. because I like going to the malls and I have low EQ.
Malamang, you know Steve Jobs di ba? Pati si Mark Zuckerberg? Eh si Chistian Grey of 50 Shades? You know what they all have in common? They are all successful and rich people but paulit ulit lang gamit nila na kind of clothes and stuff. It’s as if they have a daily uniform.
I read somewhere that people like them are like that because they do not want to think about petty things anymore. Gusto nila yung iisipin nila ay mapupunta sa mga bagay na mas may katuturan. It makes sense to me now. It makes getting ready in the morning easier. Less stress kasi hindi ka na pipili masyado what to wear. Hindi nauubos yung oras putting together an outfit. Okay siya in normal days.
Take note of what I said, okay siya in certain days.
Meaning, in other days or special occations, which are coming less often to me now, I am still a girl who likes nice things and someone who gustong magdamit ng maganda for myself para irampa during the day.
So anong sense ng lahat ng sinasabi kong ito ngayon?
Ewan ko din.
Joke lang hahahaha.
I realized that it’s better to invest on quality things like shoes, clothing pieces, accessories that you can use over and over again versus buying a lot of stuff that just get stuck in your closets or shoe cabinets, forgotten.
Quality over quantity.
If I add up the cost of all the things that I do not use anymore, halos katumbas na niya ang ilan ilang na more expensive but durable things. Sayang pera.
I think mas okay yung ganung way of thinking of how one should buy things, don’t you think?
For me, as long as you like what you are wearing and you’re comfortable in it, I think hindi nagmamatter if paulit ulit siya. It’s practical also. And, the money saved may go to other better things like savings (oo, kailangan ng savings for rainy days) and travels.
If only I still believe in New Year’s resolutions, that will be mine. I will spend less on clothes, shoes and other things but I shall travel more with Alvin and Anika.
Anyway, on a completely different topic, do you guys love pens too? Ang addict ko diyan grabe. Minana din yata ni Anika yung love ko sa pens. So imagine how happy we were when we were sent these different Minions pens, highlighters, colors and other writing supplies from BIC.
So cute, right? Anika love them! These are available in bookstores nationwide =)
Osha, have a great midweek guys!
Ang dami kong for sale sa @mommy_fleur_closet IG ko na hindi ko pa napopost! Grrrrr!
