Weekday update #22: Lace Collar

Yesterday, C wore the cutest leather gloves in burnt orange. I had wanted to wear gloves too. An elbow length, cognac snake-skin glove to be exact but totally talked myself out of it. Thought I was "trying." After I saw how smashing C looked, I decided to go with my first mind from that moment forward. Fashion mind that is. To "push the corporate envelope" and don red leather pants. This photo is a little bright as the pants weren't that red. But red nonetheless. In an effort to downplay the boyish look of the pants, I chose a high neck lace top and dainty jacket. Up close you can get a clearer understanding of what's going on here. The top half is girly, the bottom half is somewhat tom-boyish. There's the balance (or happy medium as I like to call it). Remember, there must be balance in all aspects of one's life, especially their wardrobe.

I definitely can't pull off red leather pants, at least not without looking like I am trying on Gigi's clothes behind her back. I'll just take comfort in knowing myself well enough to realize that I should stay far far away from things with attitude. What I do are comfortable things, soft and frilly things. And this sweater is exactly that. Without the camisole, it's almost completely see-through and loosely hugs me like snuggles. And if you happened to see me, arms folded around myself with a smile on my face, you, my friend, had witness me hugging snuggles back.


  1. Thanks. Looks even better now that I've removed that blurry photo. ^_^
