SupiLoves // White Watches

20140114-144419.jpg

Toda la vida he tenido una debilidad hacia los relojes blancos, que casi siempre trato de reprimir. Sólo recuerdo haber comprado un reloj blanco en mi vida, con todo y que siento que se ven divinos. La razón detrás de mi auto-privación, es que no puedo convencerme de gastar en un reloj que sé que al tiempo se ensuciará, y que no importa cuanto lo limpies nunca será completamente blanco de nuevo. No puedo. Es como cuando te gusta un par de zapatos en un color emocionante, pero como también lo tienen en negro, te llevas el negro porque obviamente le darás mas uso. Inversión a largo plazo.

Este es el único que tengo al momento, y lo tengo porque me lo regaló mi querido hermano hace como un año. Lo bueno de esto es que es de porcelana! Asi que se supone que no se debe de ensuciar nunca jamás. Veremos que dicen los años, pero hasta ahora sigue inmaculado!

I’ve always had a soft spot for white watches, but I almost never buy them. Mainly because I feel like no matter how hard you try to keep them clean, they still get dirty, and even if you clean them they never go back to being really white. I hate this, and I cannot bring myself to spend money on a watch that I know will be unusable in a few months (if lucky). It’s just like those times when you really like a pair of shoes in an exciting color, but they also have that model in black, so you end up buying it in black ’cause you know you’ll get so much more use out of it. More value for your buck, long term investment, that’s the sh!t I like. 

This is the only white watch I own, and only because my brother got it for me like a year ago. The good thing about this one, is that it is made out of porcelain, so it shouldn’t get dirty ever. Time will tell, but it’s been a year already and it still looks pristine!

Winter is officially over here in Taiwan, so I am ready to say goodbye to the ugly cold and welcome the heat and sunshine that is coming my way! (though I will probably be fed up with the heat after a month haha) This is one of my first summer outfits of 2012, and I love it; I think it’d be great to hang out around the city, or maybe for an outdoor festival (I just wore it to go get my grad pics. I know, lame). These are my favorite shorts right now, especially because of the lovely dark wash (also my fave).

Anyway, I’m really happy that it’s finally time to start rocking shorts again! It also means though,  time to step up the work out man! haha Hope you like! xx

A couple of new things.

Last weekend, I went to the Zhongxiao Dunhua shopping area here in Taipei, originally to go buy a pair of TOM’S. There is only one official retailer here in Taiwan and it’s around that area. Before arriving at the place that sold the TOM’S we stopped by the ALDO store and, as I expected, something caught my attention.

Before telling you what it was that caught my eye, I must explain that going into that store is torture for me every time. This is mainly because I always love everything I see there, but it is so much more expensive here in Taipei than in other countries, and that puts it completely out of my budget. But when I saw these wedges I fell in love! I’ve been looking for a pair of wedges that could go with everything for months now. I love high heels, but my feet don’t; they can’t take them for too long. That is not the case for wedges,  and these ones in particular are the best thing ever, they look amazing and are incredibly comfortable. They are exactly what I was looking for. So I ended up spending much more money than I had planned, but I feel like it was worth it; they will be perfect for spring and summer :)

After leaving ALDO, and saying goodbye to my friends, I went to the metro station to go back home (I live around 45 mins from downtown Taipei). On the station they had a couple of shops, and I ran into a really cute store that had this lovely wrap watch below. I have been wanting one like this for a while and since it was fairly cheap (around 15USD) I decided to get it. I absolutely love it!

And then, on that same store they had OPI nail polishes for regular US retail price (around 7USD), so I couldn’t resist getting these two colors. I’ve been wanting to buy the “Fly” from the Nicki Minaj collection for a while, but had been hesitating because of the price (it was around 12USD at the OPI store), so when I saw it at this amazing price, I didn’t think it twice and went for it. The other color is “Dulce de Leche” and just by the name you can tell it’s amazing, but it’s also the perfect nude color which is always in, looks good with anything and can be worn on any type of occasion.

I am officially broke after that visit to ALDO, but I do not regret it. The only thing left to do, is keep making wishlists for when the money fairies decide to pay me a visit! :) Hope you like! xx
