yes i am back again, showing off my new finds but this time with new friend, Thomas shellstagger. Thomas speaks spanish and a little bit of german, plus he loves the smell of new ties, especially the ones that come in earthy colors.This tie holds the favorite title in my tie rack right with the most minimal wear, why? i don’t want everyone getting use to it so pull it out during on the eve of game of thrones finales, now thats a schedule.
I have started buying sneakers again , I have also saved my Sunday afternoon 4pm slot as ‘’time with the girls(shoes)’’, my religious habit of wearing oxford shirts on Saturday is still in church mode and I really need to know others seem to think pairing them with a bow tie is too dressy for the weekend , I think can’t stop listening to Sam smith’s Latched because it reminds me of Dita’s smile, I love how my beard is growing, I feel scruffy but kept at the same time, strange? I know

The highlight of our weekend ; we got the chance to ransack the new @blossomWednesday Vintage shop a day before it opened its doors to the public, we are pretty excited about this shop, it’s been quite a journey seeing this brand grow from a ‘’phone shop’’ to a ground store in just under two years. Aside that, Dita and I were up to our usual no good, sampling night market foods and scoping out new hang out spots. I got to take my new unconstructed three button blazer from Ralph Lauren for quick spin and it turned into a two day affair, it felt like second skin so I wore through out the weekend, blame me?

I have been hoarding a lot of photos from my real life smiley series, i was saving them in hopes getting a book published based on the theme ”Happy people exist” . I have decided to release a few of them and also shoot more in this direction. If you look at these photos and smile, my work is done.
‘’A beautiful shoe has beauty, and a beautifully polished shoe has integrity, but a beautiful old shoe, well polished, has beauty, integrity, and more importantly, character. I have come to accept the fact that I may never get to the point where I have ‘’enough’’ shoes, in fact I am in the works of spreading this disease to anyone I meet, including innocent by standers. A good pair of shoes never fails to ground an outfit, a good pair of shoes with character on the other hand always fails to let you come across as less interesting.
