Closet Confidential

Welcome back!

For the first time ever, I am revealing all the secrets I've been keeping from you guys regarding my clothes and accessories. As most of you know, Closet Confidential contains a series of questions involving my clothes and accessories. Lucky you, I am going to reveal some of the items that I've been keeping in my closet. Do note that most of the clothes I own has been either thrown out, donated to the people who needs it or has been sold online. Let's go revealing my stuffs.




QUESTION 1 : WHAT IS THE OLDEST AND NEWEST ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET?

I rummaged through my closet and I've found my oldest clothes which is the red plaid shirt that I bought 4 years ago from Padini. Honestly, I once considered on selling the shirt online but I just can't really do it. If you're wondering why, I am a person who keeps sentimental stuffs but I'm not a hoarder hahaha. Well, the shirt itself is the first clothing item I bought with my own money. I know that the colour seems a bit off from my colour palette but red was my jam! Not only that, when Demi Lovato came to Malaysia for her first concert, I went to the meet & greet wearing that shirt so it does hold the sentimental value there. Well, I do wear it sometimes but not that often since I'm going for a more black & white clothes for the past few months.

As for the newest item in my closet, I would say that the Biker Jacket I bought from Burton Menswear is the newest item. In my previous article, before the #HMBALMAINATION, I showed you guys on the outfit of mine donning the biker jacket but I didn't went too deep on the story behind the jacket. Well, a few weeks back, I was so obsessed with Biker Jacket so I've decided to find one that fits me. I went to PULL&BEAR and also H&M but none of the biker jacket there fits me the way I wanted. I don't know why, my guts told me to step into Burton Menswear because I've never been into the store before (because I was not looking for anything there). I lingered around the store and when suddenly I saw this jacket hanged on the sale section, I quickly grab it and went into the dressing room. I think it was my luck because the jacket fits me well. Before I made the purchase, I contemplated on whether to buy it or not because at that time, I made a reservation on a Biker Jacket from PULL&BEAR but heck it, I can't resist the price tag and the fitting of the jacket. Thus, I walked to the cashier and made the purchase. Should I tell you the price? Nehh.





QUESTION 2 : WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM & WHAT IS YOUR 3 CURRENT FAVOURITES ?

This one is easy. The most expensive item that I have is my Seiko chronograph watch. The price? Well, I can say that it is more than RM1500. I know right? Like, why the hell am I wearing a watch that costs a fortune for my age? Well, it was after the SPM result (SPM is a public examination for students aged 17 in Malaysia) when I got it. The story behind it? Before I got the watch, I was using my black Fossil watch which looks good on me. Oh gosh, I miss that watch now. It's still there in my closet though. Anyways, I told my dad that the Fossil watch wasn't working so he told me that he'll buy a new one and thus, I got one. Honestly, when I got it, I didn't know how much it was until one day I asked my mom about the price and yes, she told me. I was so shocked and right after that, I started to appreciate my watch more. Not that I didn't appreciate it before but when you know the cost of a particular item is more than you expected, you'll start to take care of it. That's what I did.

My 3 current favourite items are my Lokai inspired bracelet, my loom bands and also my faux round spectacles. You might have guessed right, right? Well, I've been wearing those 3 items quite a lot of times. Whenever I'm out running some errands, that's the 3 items that I'll grab before I go out (despite my car keys and my phone of course!) There's noting much of it to talk about so there you go, my 3 current favourites.



QUESTION 3 : WHAT IS YOUR MOST AFFORDABLE ITEM THAT YOU USE A LOT ?

The most affordable item that I use a lot would probably be my basic tee that I bought from Uniqlo. I have 4 different colours which are Black, White, Grey & Dark Grey. The main feature that made me comfortable wearing Uniqlo basic tee is that the material of the fabric. It is so soft. If you're wondering for the price, when I bought them it was only RM20 each!




QUESTION 4 : WHAT IS THE MOST COMFORTABLE ITEM & YOUR BIGGEST BARGAIN ?

The most comfortable item I've ever wear is the crewneck sweatshirt that my best friend gave it to me as a gift that he/she (figure it out) bought from Padini. If you didn't know, I am a person who doesn't really wear sweatshirt that much but when my best friend gave it to me, I wear quite often because it was so comfortable. One thing, I can even wear it during the sunny weather (Malaysia's weather is Summer all year long) and not break a sweat! It's so good right? Good job Padini.

My biggest bargain would be the Black Denim Jacket from Forever 21 in the 21MEN collection. The initial price was RM200 something (I forgot how much it was) and when I got it, it was on sale. That time, the price tag shown was RM110 but apparently, there was an additional discount for last 2 season's item so the price I paid was RM90. It's quite a big deal right?




QUESTION 5 : WHAT IS THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE ITEM BUT YOU USE IT OFTEN ?

I can say that my boots would be the most uncomfortable item (it's not thaaat uncomfortable, I'll explain why) but I wear it a lot. Honestly, it is not that uncomfortable. It's just the fact that whenever I wear it, I had control my pace of walking because I didn't walk, I haste (Princess Diaries 2 referrence tho!) This boots was from Firetrap and I got it as my birthday gift this year.




QUESTION 6 : WHAT IS THE BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY ?

I would say that the fedora I own is my biggest waste of money even though it didn't cost me that much. It's the fact that I only wore it once because I had a themed dinner and my outfit was The Hawaiian Boy so I needed a fedora and I bought one. After that dinner, I didn't find any time to wear that fedora. I know someday it will be useful again so I've decided to keep it for future.




QUESTION 7 : WHAT IS THE MOST COLOURFUL ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET?

I would say that the floral shirt I bought from Cotton On is the most colourful item. I tried to find other colourful item but nothing is as colourful as this shirt even though it only has 3 different colours. There's nothing much to say about this shirt though.




FINAL QUESTION : WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE THAT YOU'VE GOTTEN AS A GIFT?

I would say that the Arsenal's jersey that I got from my best friend, Putri Aida Sofia is my favourite piece I've gotten as a gift. I remembered when she told me she was going to buy one for me. I was flattered because I am not a fan of football/soccer but when she gave this to me, I've started to watch some Arsenal match even though I understand nothing from it. Still, this is the favourite piece. Remember that I told you that red was my jam? Yes, that's probably why that this jersey is still my favourite item. since it's a gift, I didn't bring it to my college because I was afraid of getting it stolen so I kept it at home. Whenever I'm in a gym, I wear this jersey as a reminder to work hard on my body so that I'll stay healthy.

Aaaaaaaand that's a wrap for this article. I hope that you get some info about my private items or maybe an idea to give a gift for someone...?
