NNo, no and no. No, because this post won’t be mushy. No, because Iâm not going to talk about love and give you advice on how to get over from your imaginary ex. (Kidding!) And no, I donât have a romantic relationship with this girl. Haha! She already has a happy family. This is Lyssa Amor of lyssaamor.asia, by the way. Sheâs also a blogger, a make-up artist, and an entrepreneur. Sheâs a supermom. I get jealous sometimes on how she manages her time but despite that sheâs my closest among my blogger peers.
REASONS FOR PATCHING-UP
There are two reasons why I chose âPatched-up Loveâ as a theme for this style post. For the deeper reason: September was an emotional month. Not just for me but also to some of my friends. Sadly, two of them had breakups. Suddenly, Green Dayâs âWake Me Up When September Endsâ was an anthem and it made sense listening to it. Another reason is the ongoing trend of patches. Itâs not really fresh. I was skeptical at first. I thought this trend would just die down fast. Iâm into pieces that I can use several times for years to come; so buying clothes that have patches was not really a welcome notion.
HOW TO PATCH IT UP
Maybe you canât tell but I just attached the patches on my denim jacket. The patches wereÂ pinned to the jacket! Making sure itâs not obvious; the faces of the pins are under the jacket. Clever, eh? Haha! Iâm not sure you can do this to bomber jackets, though. You donât want to put visible holes on it. You can do this on your jeans, bags, and caps but it will still depend on the material of the pieces youâre putting it on. You can also try stitching it loosely for a cleaner and more authentic look. I say loosely because if you decided to get rid of the patches, you can just Â pull it off. I donât have the patience to stitch it up so I just pinned it all. đ
PICKING UP THE PIECES
I paired my âpatchedâ denim jacket with my black, overly used skinny jeans. Underneath the jacket is a simple black graphic shirt. I chose all black to pair with the denim jacket so that it would pop. The denim jacket is enough to make the entire outfit ânonbasicâ.Â The shoes and cap are also black. I used my Chelsea boots for a serious, more mature look. I donât know. I feel like when Iâm walking in them, Iâm in for a serious mission. (LOL) To complete everything was the cap. It gave a little boyish attitude to the ensemble.
