A SPRING THING

5:00:00 PM


purse by Zac Posen // kitten heels by Nine West


I helped a friend with his wedding reception last weekend. A part of my role involved getting in contact with literally everyone who came. The number of people who attended wasn't what amused me, it was the different responses I got upon trying to politely greet each and everyone of them. My job was simple, just to put a smile on my face while welcoming the arriving guests and to hand over the wedding souvenirs after they fill in the guest book. Some were very warm, they started chitchatting with me - although only for a few seconds as they wrote down their names in the guest book. Some beamed and uttered a sincere thank you. Some flashed a little smile, which I fully appreciate. To my surprise, some others did not bother to remove the pout on their faces, which were probably due to traffic or misdirections or otherwise, and acted like I was not even there. Like it was an invisible robot handing them the souvenirs. I tried to recall every wedding or similar events that I went to and whether or not I was polite to the people who are often turned a blind eye on. I think I have been adequately nice. But I was reminded yesterday of how important it is to always, always be nice to everyone, regardless of how bad your day has been or how dispirited you are feeling. It's not hiding your feelings (which is unhealthy), it's knowing how to behave and be gracious in every situation. Not only is it a respectable gesture, it does yourself a favour too because making other people happy makes you happy too.

All in all, it was a well spent Saturday and this is one of the ootd. I am all about easy dress-ups lately and isn't that shirt dress a perfect piece to covet in that spirit? The best part is wearing it with two of my favourite babies: a Zac Posen purse and Nine West kitten heels. Zac Posen is one of those designers I have been overlooking, which I now reckon as a big mistake. The purse is probably one of my most treasured purchases to date and I am definitely putting Zac Posen's collections from this point forward on my radar.

  7. You were very beautiful in this outfit! Perfect for the event!
    I do agree when you say one must be polite and nice on every occasion; some people just don't bother to do so, and it only looks bad on them.
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, I really appreciated it!
