During the menswear shows in Milan, a few editors have come up and took notice of my ever-evolving style. Some pointed out how I’ve drastically toned down (with the exception of the see through Missoni trousers that I wore ‘for old times sake’ on the second-to-the-last day of the shows) and some were absolutely upfront about me wearing flats. In fact, when I went to the Giorgio Armani show, I wore nothing but a plain white button-down, short-sleeved shirt, beige Elizabeth & James shorts and shoes from Church’s. A far cry from the usual more is more, “pile it on like a Christmas Tree extravaganza” that I usually do. I don’t know what it is but I feel like it’s more challenging (and interesting) to keep things to a bare minimum. And I like a good challenge from time to time. I don’t think the change has something to do with my tastes evolving… maybe it’s because I’ve been living out of a suitcase and I am forced to make do with what I have as in reuse, redo, recyle, hence I need to be more practical with what I pack?
I had an epiphany earlier this afternoon. After four days in New Delhi, I think I found myself a new hobby — eat at hotel restaurants and then take pictures at the lobby! I love hotel lobbies. It’s like going to a rich person’s massive living room. They make stellar backdrops for photos and most hotels allow, if not encourage, picture-taking. Perfect for attention hogs like me! I travel so much yet I haven’t thought of this before… photo opportunity much?
