Sibling Rivalry

Ever since I've remembered, my sister and I have been at loggerheads. Not in a bad way. In a way that anyone who has a sister near their age would know exactly what I mean.

I have had to work VERY hard to look presentable. I'm not really an ugly person, I just mostly do not care what most people think about me, because I don't value anyone's opinion but my own. So, I've had to work really hard to sort of have a distinctive style. I don't wear trendy clothes because I don't carry off trendy well, because I have VERY wide shoulders, a really big rack and am pretty clumsy. Besides, it is too much of an effort to follow girlie magazines to follow trends. So, I buy clothes cut in a classic style, I accessorize with genuine, understated jewellery because I would rather wear a simple gold chain rather than have a jumble of beads around my neck that I would have to change every season, because I value permanency and also it takes away the need to waste time. Also, to cut the clutter and the confusion of what to buy and what not to buy, I wear only 5 colours - black, white, red, blue and pink. This colour code helps me optimise time and my money while shopping and has been the BEST limiting factor to both the variables amongst all other limiting factors I have employed so far. I have a lot of my clothes tailored (the one perk of living close to Bangkok and earning well) and always wear expensive shoes. By expensive, I mean by my standards, which is about 50 dollars upwards.

Now, a lot of my sartorial choices may seem expensive, but they are not. They actually give excellent value for money. And I have spent ages fine tuning the art of being reasonable decently dressed. Now, I should have smelt a rat when my sister exhibited so much interest in my shopping. She has hijacked my style! Now, she shamelessly asks me for the product code numbers of everything I shop for. Die retail generic stores! Die! From now on baby, Mum's the word! Hehehehehe....
