Why Don’t You...? By Clara Goh

A true lover of clas­sics, Fendi’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions doyenne of­fers her ideas for a sweetly whim­si­cal month.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Horoscopes -

… READ YOUR WAY THROUGH THE WORLD. Not al­ways able to get away for a hol­i­day, I shall be trav­el­ling through read­ing, start­ing first by re-read­ing my favourite A For­tuneTeller Told Me by Tiziano Terzani, ex­plor­ing parts of Asia I would hardly likely be able to visit, and then The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy and Do Not Pass Go by Tim Moore, a story of Lon­don told through the fa­mous streets and sta­tions of the Mo­nop­oly board. … GO BACK IN TIME. Mi­crowave some but­tery pop­corn and choose a clas­sic film to in­dulge in ev­ery Sun­day. I’m watch­ing The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (Dame Mag­gie Smith’s Academy Award-win­ning per­for­mance), Blake Ed­ward’s The Great Race with Tony Cur­tis and Natalie Wood, Bon­nie and Clyde with Faye Du­n­away and War­ren Beatty, and The Hap­pi­est Mil­lion­aire with Tommy Steele. … DARE TO IN­VEST. Not only in the per­fect Fendi Peek­a­boo bag but also in de­vel­op­ing a new skill. For me, it is learn­ing to surf and speak Ital­ian. Or, fi­nally dar­ing to dream about and plan for that Man­hat­tan apart­ment. … LAUGH. Fill this penul­ti­mate month with mirth and merry, and watch the sim­ple ev­ery­day mo­ments turn into oc­ca­sions to re­mem­ber. … WEAR ROSE-TINTED GLASSES. Tak­ing a cue from my favourite id­iom, I shall choose to see only the brighter side of ev­ery­day sit­u­a­tions. Dare I test this dur­ing traf­fic jams? … SHOP YOUR WARDROBE. Our clos­ets are fash­ion trea­sure troves, filled with much-loved ap­parel, im­pulse pur­chases, clothes for our “thin­ner and taller” selves, and more. Em­bark on re­fresh­ing and “up­cy­cling” as well as fus­ing old favourites to make a new unique piece. … PLAN CHRIST­MAS. Revel in the joy and good­will of the sea­son. It’s my favourite time of year, when I “take stock” and cel­e­brate fam­ily and friends. Ev­ery Novem­ber, I try to fi­nalise gift lists. No last minute shop­ping for me!
