My favourite and newest pair of Jeffrey Campbell "Foxy Spike" tells who I am.
By only looking at the front, you see nothing special but a pair of bright blue platformed heels.
But who could have expect that at the back has studs all over?

Everyone has history that doesn't want to be reveal. It could be lost of love ones, a failure causing-false decision, a tragic childhood memory, etc. --- scars that we are trying so hard to hide. Me myself has these kind of history as well.

In the beginning of my adventure going to Sydney for overseas study was one of the hardest time I've been through in my life. I left my family and friends, went to an unfamiliar place, facing all sorts of problems alone. I was still a "dark side thinking" person by that time. I loved using studs, pins, chains, and all kinds of sharp spiky objects to represent myself. Black was the only colour in my world. Realizing that hiding myself from my depression and keep escaping from problems won't made my life any better, I decided to gave a change and face myself.

Bit by bit, colours came into my world. Or should I say, I start to welcome colours into my world.
I met good friends who accepted who I am and who I was ;
I bought an adorable Bichon Frise whom I named Sumizi to be my forever mate ;
I started to explore Sydney, and fall into photography ;
I started to enjoy shopping in Sydney, and fall into fashion styling ; (which before, I thought Sydney has nothing interesting to shop about)
I realized being a fashion stylist is what I really want to be, and started this blog of mine ;
all these, slowly brings me to who I am now --- from a girl who only wore black and felt comfortable with keeping her hair fringe so long that it can totally cover her eyes, to a girl who loves colour, exploration, meeting different people, willing to share and most importantly, doesn't mind telling others her past and history.

This is who I am, this is Visala.

I choose this pair of shoes for the contest to share with you my personality because I see the front part of the heels as what people see me : someone who love fashion, love being chic and trendy, love all sorts of pretty things, and always dressed up decently. Whereas the studded heels at the back shows the other side of me, a person with scars that are not afraid to reveal and share. I bought the blue foxy spike instead of the black one because it tells a story of who I am : a girl that doesn't mind stepping out of her comfort zone to explore, yet influenced from her past, still has an obsession on black and studs.

So do not fear and do not be ashamed of what happened to you before, it's our past, our happy and sad history that transformed us into who we are.


Notes : This outfit of mine was inspired from the current "oceanic" trend. The colours of the trousers reminds me of the sea and therefore I decided to do my eye shadow with shades of blue. The bright neon yellow chain bag was purposely chose to brought out a huge contrast with the blue heels and giving a "wow" effect to the overall outfit.

If you like this outfit and concept of mine, to show some support,
it would be very very thankful and grateful for you to give me a vote in Chictopia :
