Soooo purple!

Sometimes people generally associate me with my affinity to clothes that belong more to the duller side of the color spectrum. It's partially true I'm afraid. Yes, I love powdery/ dusty pastels and neutral basics, but I'd certainly appreciate a pop of color here and there (never mind that I have this almost neon orange stethoscope that's almost becoming my trademark - "which doctor ?"... " you know, the one with the tacky orange stethoscope?"...)

But that definitely did not deter me from having this excitement when I found these purple pants from my dad's wardrobe. Looks like he wore them about 20 years ago!

Initially the pants are far more loose and they had this icky straight cut silhouette, which was so unforgiving for my height (or lack thereof). A little alteration was absolutely vital I thought, and in this case, I brought the purple, slightly moldy-smelling trousers to the trustee alteration shop in Sungei Wang.

The color of the pants is still vivid. I don't know how many times my dad washed them, but knowing him I'm sure the purple hue is still intact thanks to his hand-washing habit (no, not the prevention of H1N1 hand washing, as in, he prefers to hand wash his clothes rather than throwing them into the washing machine) ...

I love playing school boy. The pinstripe messenger bag is from Topman.

OMG purple trousers!! cool giler! And they fit soooo well 2! If u don't mind me asking, where is this alteration shop u go 2 in sungei wang? cos i am also a petite dude n evry alter shop ive been 2 would only shrink JUST the waist and taper the legs of the pants, creating a god-awful carrot with huge bum silhouette. PLEASE ANSWER TQ SO MUCH

Hi Umar thanks for visiting Dunia Fashyon. Well, my favorite alteration spot is at Pei Pei's at the floor similar to where the Post Office is. (4th floor I think) It's actually the back extension of a clothes shop called "FEEL FASHION". You can enter from the shop itself or go from the back alley straight to the alteration corner.So far I think their alteration job for my trousers is not bad for the amount of money I've paid, and I'd say it's quite reasonable! Hope this helps.
