sha: the purple honda civic


Purple Honda Civic

Someone talked about this before. It was about what colour do you need to wear to work. I mean, there are lots of wonderful working attires out there but does everything suits you?

My bosses were teasing me about the red colour shirt I was wearing to work last week. My assistant called me "Red Riding Hood" without the word Little as I am not one little person. I had then teased her that I am supposed to be the wolf instead of the grandmother or the cute girl.

Yes, my assistant used to say that I'm too strict. So the wolf suits me in contrast to the other wonderful things in the folklore!:P

Okay..okay. So, folks, how do you dress to work?

I might be bias when I'm making this statement but I don't particularly like the way the government servants are dressing to work these days. Nope...nope...don't get me wrong, folks. My mum is a government servant too. But what I'm trying to say is that sometimes the less is better. In private sector, you can be criticized by your superior if you don't dress right.

I remember being in my mother's office when she worked for the ministry in KL (before they moved to Putrajaya). I saw this glittering baju kurungs, strands of accessories like crystals and pearls and inches of make ups. Then I asked my mum,

"Mesti dia kerja hebat kan?!"

My mum smiled while she shook her head, "Itu kerani ibu."

Errrrr....??? Kerani is a noble work, folks. But she looked like a Pengarah:P

Then there came my experience of seeing teachers who wore organza kebaya to school. Chiffon beaded was one of the favourite fabric too. I mean, I don't mind seeing pretty people but seeing ones with Majalah Pengantin outfits everyday made me wonder whether I was the one who was not up to the standard of fashion.

Yes, maybe I am.

So, I made a point of setting up colours for myself: The Colour of The Car.

Cars - especially the expensive and elegant ones came in neutral colours. Black, White, Silver, Bronze, Red. They are colours but they have such significance. Have you ever had this occassion when a friend is driving a Yellow Satria and everyone recognised that person by glimpse?

Yup, I believe the colour of a car is safe to wear to work. Easy, natural and simple.

Therefore, even though I love purple so much, I don't think I will drive a purple Honda Civic. Same goes to working outfit.

It depends on the shade and my own physical appearance.

One won't want to be called a Christmas Tree:p

What colour are you wearing to work today, folks?

salam sha.

i wear black everyday except for sundays because on that day i have to wear the uniform to work which is either green flowery dress or batik printed baju kurung.
since i wear black abayaat a lot, i like giving it a little splash of colour, red on black, purple on black... on and on. if i wear all black, i'll make sure the handbag is in diff color, matched with the shoes and my cute brooches.
elegant is the word.

p/s: that car is gorgeous!

Iza kerja kilang jer, so pakaian memang tak masuk kategori lawa. Asal nampak ok, ok jer lah. Lagipun dah terbiasa simple. Sangat sederhana :)
