One Sided Earring & Fashion Industry x Chainlessbrain



Talking about accessories, do you like earrings? 

Yes, I do love earrings, but not that picky compared to clothes or any other items. Last month, I received this "one sided earring" from Singapore based brand called "Chainlessbrain" in order to feature in The Equinox Fashion. And guess what, the quality and design are really worth to have. Thus, this look is all about my one sided earring, and you can see that I've done nothing with it. Just a simple top from Chicnova with no foundation, lipstick, nor anything but an eyeliner.




However, this post is not going to be an outfit one because I want to disclose another side of me which I believe that you guys might be able to know this Thai fashion blogger from The Equinox Fashion even more. I have written maybe a few self-confession posts about myself so far, and some of you may know that I'm pretty chillax and down to earth person. 

Before I had assimilated myself in this industry, I thought about how this fabulous industry was. To attend glamourous events, to dress in a very pretty outfit and live in high-end society. That sounds like a dream, isn't it? But that's totally opposite from the reality to be honest. I've been here, working for my blog, meeting influential people and living the life like some people have always wanted. BUT I can say that the fashion industry is one of the greatest places to learn about the flaw in this society. Some people are super nice, while some can be insanely bitchy. Trust me, I've been to those situations before. 

For example; I was rejected to work in a big company in BangkokThailand just because there's another applicant who got herself in only by her family's name. I was in a party which people were talking about new collections they wearing, as well as, drugs they taking. Or some people in a big fashion event treated me like an invisible person since I'm not a famous superstar. This world is crazy you know. However, I take these bad days as a big lesson to live in a peaceful mind yet be a great fighter. "Sometimes, you gotta fight for what you want by not being against the others" Like I told you in previous post that the only competitor is "myself" 

It's like a culture shock for me at first, but now it seems so normal. If you don't take those bad experiences seriously, I'm pretty sure you're gonna love this industry. 

Sorry if I'm not a glam fashion blogger who you looking for, but this is who I am :)

  2. J'adore cette boucle d'oreille.
    Malheureusement je ne peux pas en porter car je n'ai pas les oreilles percées, sinon je ferai une allergie.. :/

  26. These totally suit your style and of course you rock them like the superstar you are! <3

    Whoever rejected you in favour of nepotism is missing out big time on you SUPERSTAR! This post is refreshing and it's great you're being so honest about your experiences in the fashion industry. Can definitely relate to those horrible feelings of being secluded and left out, never nice experiences to go through but just think, anyone not bothering with you isn't worth a moment of your time, and obviously doesn't know a stylish babe when he/she sees one! <3

    Good for you for staying strong and being better and bolder than they could ever be! xo

    I think it's sad that some fashion bloggers are so snob that they think they don't have to respond to anybody, that they are too good for that.. it's stupid!

  43. I think it's great that you share the downsides of the industry as well as the upsides. Sometimes as a viewer from the outside, we always think the grass is greener on the other side, so when we finally get there, we're shocked and completely demotivated to continue. However, because you share your views, I'm sure a lot more people will be prepared for some bad things to come. I'm sorry that you've had bad experiences, but it seems that you're really strong and still working hard to be successful regardless :)
