Truth be told. I’m vain. Very vain. There are times these days where I dressed not to impressed, but completely for my own pleasure. No. I don’t really dress up to impress anyone, but for the sake of looking beautiful whenever I passed by mirrors in the shopping mall. I don’t know how it is like with most women, but I’ll admit it to you that I whenever stumbled upon mirrors anywhere I go, I would stop for a awhile and admire my own reflection in the mirror. I don’t know how it is like with you ladies out there, but it makes me feel very good about myself whenever I see myself in the mirror. A few years back, I hate the person who looked back at me from inside the mirror. She not only looks messy with all the shabby clothing that does not even fit her own body, but she was insecure and lacks confidence too.
I like myself better now. Dressing well makes me feel good and confident about myself and these days, I could smile at myself in the mirror, and couldn’t be more grateful to leave the old me behind. I certainly do not miss the old me.
Sounds superficial and quite a diva? Maybe. But would you believe me when I said that how you dress up and carry yourselves in public affects your life in general greatly? I have to say that clothes, accessories and fragrances are mood setter. It makes you feel good about yourselves even when your day is less than perfect. Bonus point on being happy about yourselves? It’s contagious and you emit such aura that will make people feel good about you too.
Dressing well does not mean that you have to own a walk in wardrobe at home. No, no. Dressing well means being clever and smart at mixing and matching your clothes with the accessories that you have. One dress, for example may reflect different looks and mood with the accessories that you choose to go with it.
Apart from jewelries like earrings and necklaces, handbags, clutches and shoes will set different mood to just one outfit.
As of late, I discovered that I gravitate easily towards a variety of bags and shoes, and one that caught my attention is collections from Sembonia. Being a novice in all things fashion, I’m not really familiar with this particular brand, but having being invited to their boutique in Pavilion last week for the preview of their Summer 2015: Revolution of Leather Accessories, I must say it was quite an eye opening experience.
Sembonia Boutique in Pavilion KL. Sembonia is a subsidiary company under Bonia along with their sister company Carlo Rino. The company was founded in 1974 by S. S. Chiang, the Group’s Executive Chairman, who started the business of designing, manufacturing, and wholesaling leather goods in Singapore

So, which one is my personal favourite?
This one. 😉 I like how this is very versatile. You can use it as a clutch, purse or even just as a wallet.
It is chic, classy and at the same time, girlishly youthful.
Brownie point? It is completely convenient and functional. You can chuck in cash, cash and even your smartphone in it and it still does not look bulky.
Apart from the wristlets and clutches, I spotted some newly arrived Sembonia handbags too. They are all lovely and I couldn’t really decide which one I like most. Perhaps a revisit to the boutique is very much needed soon. 😉
One for the album. 🙂
I’ll be writing more about my new clutch soon, in the meantime, do check out the website: https://www.sembonia.com/ for more info on Sembonia’s news and updates.
