Wearing an all white ensemble can be tricky. Others who are not really good at pulling it off usually look washed out, bare and boring. But there are a few things that you can do to pull off this style.
When you go for a monochromatic look like an all white ensemble, play around with strong colors for your accents. In my case, I went for a deep shade of red for my lips (MAC Ruby Woo FTW!) and also for my shoes. Another thing to consider is a classic color for your accessories, which is why I chose gold for my look. Gold and white will always go perfectly together as it creates a posh and classy outfit.
So what do you think of my look? How about sharing me your thoughts on the comments below or maybe even your links to your own monochromatic looks?
You can’t blame me if Iggy Azalea’s Fancy gets stuck in your head for hours. LOL.
I guess I was feeling a little Fancey (yes that’s how I pronounce it for that added sossy feel! LOL!) that day and wanted to channel my inner Iggy and all her #swag so I decided to wear something “street” instead of my usual classic style *cough* feeling ko naman *cough*. Hahaha!
Kidding aside, sometimes we just have to express our inner swag. So what if we want to brag to the world what we have? We have every right to do that, especially if all those things are products of our hard work. So if some person comments on why you just have to post on Instagram the new shoes that you bought, block them! It’s your IG account, not theirs! However, you also have to be careful in posting such items. Thieves are everywhere. Other than that, you don’t need judgmental people in your life. Unless those #fabuluxe posts were obtained illegally (I’m looking at you corrupt government officials), then we can judge them together. Ha!
The red-blue-white combination has always been classy for me. It also looks really friendly for me. I guess it’s because it’s such a basic styling technique that anyone can easily pull off.
The dress was pretty perfect for the blazing hot weather earlier. It also went well with my new pumps (thank God I used them already after like 2 weeks). Plus the cloth felt breezy that even though it was hot, I wasn’t sweating alot. The cute umbrella details made it a great dress that can be worn on casual days. And because of the color combination, I fell in love immediately after seeing this online!
How about you guys, what’s your favorite color combination?
Wearing something bright and colorful will also make your day bright and colorful. If you are feeling a bit gloomy or sad or maybe even depressed, try wearing something vibrant. It will definitely make you a little bit happier. It’s like your own version of an “upper” drug. Atleast this one is safe and would never ruin anyone’s future. Hihi. Although, avoid something too flamboyant or flashy especially if it’s blazing hot outside. You don’t want to blind other people. LOL
TIP: If you wear something “lively” like this dress, tone down your accessories. Your dress is the focus of the whole outfit. ;)
I really love this vintage dress. It was a hand-me-down from my Tita. She used to wear this one during the 70s, probably when she’s going out with a date or with friends. How amazing is that, right? I find clothes with backstories interesting. That’s probably why I’m a huge fan of vintage shopping. Not to mention ransacking my Mom’s closet. Haha!
What about you? Do you guys own a vintage clothing that has an interesting backstory?
If you follow me on my social media accounts (see sidebar), you may already know how much of a crazy cat lady I am. LOL. It was really funny that our new adopted kitty, Merrel, joined me earlier in taking my ootd shots. I have to say that for a male kitten, he surely loves the camera. Haha!
Anyway, back to my outfit. I found this Jumpsuit while shopping at the Zara store in China. I fell inlove immediately after seeing it. I didn’t even bother to check the price tag. I must say that this is one of my favorite purchases from Zara. I’m a huge fan of the brand but they can be expensive at times. I was really happy with the price of this jumpsuit though. For some reason, Zara in China is cheaper compared here. Probably because their products are made in Vietnam and other parts of China. And for that reason alone, I am definitely going back to China!
