That’s my personal preference, yes:
immaculate makeup that looks as if she is not wearing makeup at all. Though for
evening, I quite like the smoky-eye look. Or depending on the dress and hairdo,
the frosty-eye look.
Want to know what is NOT my preference?
Fake eyelashes. Scary-as-fuck fake
eyelashes that look like squished spiders stuck to her eyelids. Oh, the horror.
And before someone someone goes “What’s
wrong with fake eyelashes? Some can look quite good..”
Let me save you the keystrokes and answer
Since I’m unfamiliar with the brand, I had
to ask Piring about it and do some research. Apparently it’s all the rage among
the hipsters now, isn’t it? Well, I won’t comment on the design as that’s very
subjective. But it seems like the marketing hinges on the changeable NATO
straps. I’m rather curious how that just caught on, as NATO straps have been
around for decades. And that is independent of the watch brand itself, you can
switch straps on any watch you currently own.
So the price ranges from 2 to 3 million
rupiahs. I don’t know how important this is for others, but from my research,
the brand has no provenance. It has no heritage. And I thought hipsters were
all about “authenticity” and “Since 1862” and stuff like
that. That in itself is fine… but think about it this way: Seiko, Casio, and
Timex are all brands rich with history and heritage. And most of them are
priced under 3 million rupiahs. So you hipsters could be wearing a watch brand
that was conjured up 6 years ago and made in China. And Daniel Wellington might
be some made-up character, for all you know.
No, not all watches must have history and
heritage. But when you price it in that range, there are options that do.
Example: Bell & Ross watches are in the 60 – 150 juta range. Do you know
when that company was started? 1996. There is no story or history to the
brand.. it’s all marketing. Why the hell would you want to spend that much
money on a brand that is younger than you, when there are watch brands that go
back to the 1800s?
My personal preference? I prefer dating a girl with makeup that LOOKS like she isn’t wearing makeup. Those membumi guys who say stuff like “gw suka cewek yg alami2 aja” obviously hasn’t woken up next to enough of them to have an informed opinion.
“Wajib”? No. Cewek ain’t got any
kewajiban to do *anything* for the sake of men. I wouldn’t want to date a woman
who wears makeup for me. I’d date a woman who wears makeup simply because it
makes herself feel good.
By opening their eyes dan membawa ke jalan yang diterangi.
Because deep inside every long-haired woman there is a short-haired woman screaming to be let out.
I just give them a little.. nudge.
“Role model” sih ngga ya…
karena saya bukan fesyen desainer.
Tapi kalau nanya siapa desainer yang saya
suka, here are a few:
Hmm. Personally, I can spot a padded bra
from a mile away. Mind you, most men can’t. I understand that it’s more of an
issue of “jatuhnya baju” for you than a matter of.. uhmmm…
deception. Especially when it comes to evening dresses and the such. I guess it
all comes down to how much padding you put there. As long as you don’t overdo
it, it should be fine.
Besides, us men are already FULLY aware
that most women come with visual deceptions. You ain’t that tall, hence the
heels. And your face doesn’t actually look like that, hence the makeup. And you
weren’t born with blue hair, that’s hair dye. And you ain’t got green eyes,
those are contact lenses. And you don’t have crooked teeth, those were just
painfully installed in your mouth. So no, we wouldn’t consider a bit of padding
to be a major breach of contract. 😉
The biggest fashion faux-pas is *working*
in fashion, and giving unsolicited fashion advice to people.
I consider it the height of rudeness; like
writers who feel compelled to correct other people’s grammar, or doctors who
offer medical advice without being asked.
For the record, no.. I’m not into women who
look.. uh, manly. How you ever arrived at that conclusion is beyond me. On the
other hand, I do prefer the less-feminine look. Short hair looks different,
less ribet, and accentuates the face. And I find the back of the neck to be
The next time you go to a restaurant, pay
attention to how couples are seated.
You’ll always see a long-haired girl
sitting *side-by-side* with her boyfriend. It’s subtle… but it also shows
possesiveness by the boyfriend, and perhaps a desire to show her off to others.
At the cost of having a proper face-to-face conversation with her.
But a short-haired girl? She will always
sit across from him, having an eye-to-eye conversation. Because she is not
someone for a man to guard, or show off as elbow-candy. And she would never
date a man who sees her as such, either.
And that, is why I like short-haired women.
I don’t like Fossil Watches. Begitu pula
dengan merk2 jam seperti Guess, Alexander Christie, dan sebagainya. Bahkan yang
keluaran “desainer” seperti Calvin Klein, Michael Kors sekalipun.
Bukan urusan desain atau apa2 sih… tapi
menurut saya, sebaiknya beli jam tangan yang mereknya memiliki
“provenance/heritage” atau sejarah. Apakah itu berarti pasti mahal?
Semua merek berikut ini harganya di kisaran
Seiko, pencipta quartz movement. Timex,
salah satu perusahaan jam tangan pertama di Amerika. Swatch, perusahaan yang
menyelamatkan industri jam tangan Swiss dari kebangkrutan di tahun 80an. Atau
Casio G-Shock, yang pertama membuat jam tangan yang tahan banting.
Why buy a Fossil when you can wear a piece
of history for the same amount of money? 🙂
If you are referring to the style of
shoes… yes, of course each guy has a personal preference. Some like strappy
high heels, some like ballet slippers, some like sneakers.
But if you are referring to the brand…
well, put it this way: the average guy would have NO idea whether it’s a Manolo
Blahnik, or VNC, or Nine West you are wearing.
