Fashion Police Never Misses

{26 June 2007}   White Pants

white pants

When I got out of the shower this morning, it was way too hot! I could feel sweat again. Argh! This is what I don’t like about summer. I started thinking about what to wear in this scorching weather. It has to be light colored, soft and light fabric. I took my orange shirt and my sneakers with orange stripes. Perfect. Now, what pants or shorts should I use?As I rummaged through my closet, I saw them hanging, my white pants.

I rarely use my white pants since they easily get dirty and they make my legs look bigger. The fabric is light and the design is classic. I actually got it on sale for the half the price, I think. When I put them on and checked my self in the mirror, I found the outfit odd. It was normal but I wanted to add an edge to it. I didn’t want to use layers because of the heat. I decided to fold it higher making it a mid-calf walking shorts. Love it. It looked hip and just perfect for the summer. I wore my sunglasses to complete the look and grabbed my carry-all on my way out.

{10 June 2007}   Suede Shoes

suedeI am a shoe-addict. Well, my wardrobe is the evidence since I have almost 15 pairs. I’m no celebrity but I do find a way to wear them. Trust me, I do. I make it a point to rotate using them at least once a week. One purchase of mine was a cream suede loafers from Gola. Actually, I was planning to buy a bag on that day but ended up with the shoe instead. The interior was soft and the shoe was really comfortable. Plus it was sold at 50% off. Great buy indeed.

The real challenge began when I started wearing them. Yes they were nice to wear but they easily get dirty. I could not wear them during rainy days and I have to be very cautious where I go. Obviously in spite of my care, it still got dirty through time. I do not have a suede cleaner or even know how to clean it. And I saw another black suede topsider that really looked nice. I’m having second thoughts about it because it is hard to maintain.
