THE FIFTH DRESS  ⏐ CHANEL BAG  

“I like things in order, and coherent. When I see things out of proportions or clashed colors, it frustrates me a lot. I like to decorate, and everything in sight must be placed accordingly. I have a mild OCD. This is me. ”

“Identity stems from your ownself and not from others. People might put you down sometimes or sometimes they might even forget you when they succeed. But you, yourself know the greatness in you and you too will succeed far greater. It is all about perseverance, determination, constant progression, some creativity and defintely luck.”

DECEIVER

A two bedroom apartment in downtown New York.

I like to see myself as a decorator, a beautifier, a curator or maybe simply a visual deceiver. I have this tendency to make photos of certain interiors look good which in reality isn't. Have I found my true calling? #dream

I believe friends who have lunch together during the weekends, stay friends forever. Also, good friends contribute to any OOTD requests and also join in the fun. Last Saturday was fun because that happened. Brunch at a new hotspot was an hour wait. So while we were at it, fooling around the sidewalks with our phones were somewhat productive to say the least.

April 30, 2016   AU REVOIR. In typical 'Leonie' fashion, I would try to schedule the most activities at every final day of any vacation. It is sort of a 'last-day-crunch-time' mentality. This vacation in particular. With the flight departing during the wee hours of the morning, I decided the Met was an amazing idea (which wasn't because part of it were closed for the Met Ball) as well as Central Station, with take out chobanis for lunch at Washington Square Park. Not to mention, the reservations for a play and some last minute shopping before sojourning to West Village to meet a good friend for dinner. Crunch time!

Now for Blackbird, the play that I attended starring Michele Williams and Jeff burns was gold. It was a solid performance that gave me goosebumps at certain cuts. This was no doubt a world class act. #alwaysplaysovermusical

April 29, 2016   WILLIAMSBURG. Mass brands, independent store franchises... Has Williamsburg fallen into gentrification? One trip down Bedford Avenue, past its parade of trendy restaurants, gleaming nightlife spots and American retailers in order to understand the New York City gentrification in its purest form. Despite this, Williamsburg has not exactly lost its charm entirely. There are the independent coffee houses, artisanal food boutiques and independent multi label boutiques. It is still more laidback than its glamorous sister, and a certain vibrancy. Pretentious or not, it is up to one to decide.

April 29, 2016   KENT BROADWALK, WILLIAMSBURG. One of the best scenic views of the Manhattan borough would be here, at this particular lookout point. So the bestfriend and I went back to a similar place three years later despite residing in different countries, fooled around as though time was stagnant and we were still in college. Oh how time had progress and how little we changed... #likeoldtimes
