除夕/大年初一 🎉 What’s the point of an OOTD 🤔

除夕

☀️

Sneakers & all ready to just eat! 👟

I can't be happier. ✌🏻 Cos 👟👟👟

Selfie!

The only time of the year I think it's okay to abuse selfie rights. 😜

I mean.. how long do we all spend getting ready for CNY! The planning for outfits etc etc etc!?! 🤣

团圆饭! Woohoo! 💕

***
So we lou hei-ed, and made a huge mess of the table.

Requested the service staff to help us clean the mess before bringing out the other dishes.

But..

(Service Staff) 💁🏻: 过年不可以清理桌子的!
👥: Huh 为什么!?
💁🏻: 因为满地黄金吗!
👥: 😳😳😳 #win

Always LB. 💕

Go 拜年 & sightseeing all at the same time. ✌🏻🚗

This year's table drastically differs from every other year.

We usually have steamboat, and way too much food.

After years and years of peaceful protesting, we finally scrapped the steamboat idea this year & ate out for reunion dinner.

So since we had no leftovers, grandpa whipped up some of his CNY specials for 初一 and these were JUST ENOUGH to fill our bellies.

Happy to say we did not overeat this year! Yay! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Mission accomplished!

Let's go 拜年拜年!

Every CNY there's one thing that stays on the agenda: OOTD.

Here's a shot of my parents very patiently waiting for me & my shenanigans to get done. 🤣

Collateral damage. 👦🏻📸🤣🤣🤣

And the hunt for a clean wall begins.

Isn't this a familiar sight!!!

I think it's really cute how girls bump into girls taking their ootd during CNY. I mean, we're EVERYWHERE.

There was this once I was taking my ootd & lo & behold just around the corner another girl's brother / bf was taking theirs! & the guys exchanged glances (cos they were in the same.. plight. Haha!) & I thought it was hilarious.

So we smiled and gave each other space / privacy cos c'mon! We all know how awkward it can get ~

But I'm really thankful my lil brother puts up with my nonsense just this once every year cos he knows how much I love #ootds.

OOTDs

What is the point of an OOTD anyway. Since we're on this topic.

I know a lot of non-OOTD peeps don't understand why we do what we do.

So why DO WE do that? Take OOTDs.

For me at least, I love fashion. I love clothes. I love picking them out and pairing them with accessories, bags, and shoes.

I love thinking of which eye shadows to use, and which lip color to apply.

I love how some outfits are comfier than others, and how the tailored more structured pieces immediately pulls a look together.

I love how the same person can portray so many facades. Dolled up really glamorously for an event – heels, make up, hair, you name it / look sporty & cute in trainers / beach vibes & long flowy maxis / weekend chill / sweet & girly to Kylie Jenner overnight.. the possibilities are endless!?

And OOTD to me is like a personal visual diary of all the pairings I put together that I once (or still) love/d.

Sometimes when I am feeling uninspired, I look through my OOTDs and pull out the same combination. Twist things up a lil here & there, & viola! Closet woes be gone!

So, I don't really know exactly what OOTDs are for, but I like doing it cos well, simply, I really love clothes (and bags and shoes and accessories and make up). Haha! 💕

And I love poking into other people's OOTDs cos the same top/ skirt / dress can look sooooooo different depending on how you allow your personality to shine through. The oh-why-didn't-I-think-of-that moments are so much fun!

In fact, I'm really proud of my Pinterest boards (#shameless) cos it's like "OOTD" without the physical effort 😅 (& designer clothes that I can never afford)!

Okay enough blabbering.

Ending this post with the second outfit for my 初一.

Till tomorrow! 😘
