she views her life through tinted glass

written by ChristingC January 15, 2010

Zara dress and vest, H&M hat, Ashish for Topshop wedges, H&M and vintage bangles, Gucci aviators.

Perception is incredibly deceptive. I giggled the other night when the boy’s childhood friend described us as “responsible adults with perfect, settled lives.” In my opinion responsibility falls very low on a list of adjectives I would utilize to describe our lifestyle. I sleep until noon, party incessantly, travel on a whim, reside in a heap of mess, and am far too impatient to sit through a formal dinner party that doesn’t include floods of wine. Some believe because we have officially committed our relationship on paper and are financially stable, our lives are set, but the future is never fixed. Economies shift, preferences change, and ambition can grow. I don’t conclude that if I am happy at present, I will always remain in a similar state. We can start with wealth and end in rags. You could be hopeless now, and climb to a successful state. My father was a waiter when I was born, and today he is one of the most lucrative businessmen I know. Life is a puzzle of choices, luck, and opportunity. We hit each of these elements constantly, and it is through every bend that our path is decided.

Love this! I believe you wore a similar combination a while ago with over-the-knee boots. It’s a great outfit in all of its reincarnations!

I’m grateful for your blog, I can live your life vicariously while I slave away at a 9-5ish job! 🙂

I really love how everything in the outfit somehow works together.

I always find it interesting to find out how someone else perceives my life. Sometimes it’ll actually shift how I see it.

I think what you say about the future is so true. We think we know it all but in actual fact we really don’t. Great outfit and I love your blog. I always wonder how you manage to walk in such heels. I would complain non stop.

I like how a 1/5 of your comments actually address your post. That is because you write like the most self-righteous and self-absorbed person ON EARTH. I know that blogs are supposed to be about whatever and are usually just vehicles to indulge the SELF but goodness, as much as do, it is amazing you haven’t grown tired, of well, YOU.

But I AM thankful for this post. You see, I couldn’t make out how you were able to maintain such a ridiculously expensive life in probably the world’s most expensive city with NO job and no mention of your husband (aren’t you guys like, 21?) seemingly unemployed as well but flying all over the bloody world and drinking, shopping and partying like it is going out of style. I can’t tell you how absurdly ironic I find it that you are talking about change and shifts when you haven’t had to work for anything in your life and STILL aren’t working. Absurd I tell you.
So feel free to call me a hater, because I a going long range on my hate. I don’t think you are that interesting, your life is one that is lived by 2% of this planet and I hope all those are worship you realize that the likelihood of them sharing in your current joys, nil.
