I thought all-white, girly and frilly ensembles would stop working on me anymore once I dyed my hair dark, but I just proved myself wrong with this outfit! It just goes to show that you can still be as cutesy and girly as you want without having to dye your hair light brown or blonde EVER! My hair quality is a little better now that I had the ends trimmed off, but it’s still nowhere near the quality of my virgin hair from… err, 10 years ago? I can’t believe it’s been this long. Somehow, I missed this natural look.
Anyhow, I actually have a ton of little white dresses that I haven’t worn yet, and I think now is the best time to whip them out of the labyrinth that is my closet. Black hair on white clothes is my new thing right now.
Never mind that my title totally sounds like a campaign for recycling. Dresses are really my lifesavers this summer, and I must say that this particular one is such a fun piece to wear. White dresses make the best templates for experimentation. Imagine it like a clean sheet of paper that has yet to be modified in any way. The possibilities are endless!
White on white with a hint of rose gold always makes for a clean, classic look. I haven’t been wearing these kinds of outfits recently but all the pretty S/S 2014 collections made me temporarily drop my favorite dark hues.
I’ve had this dress in my closet for a while now but never really got to properly wear it out until now because I felt like it was too plain to wear on its own without any accessories.
If I wanted some contrast, I would’ve worn the black version of this Morellato jewelry watch set (it exists), but I wanted to do something high key for a change. What do you think?
I personally love the pop of white accessories against the white dress, especially since I’m not too fond of wearing anything too loud. I’ll just let my hair color and plum lipstick do all the talking!
Morellato’s got some really nice watches to complement their accessories. Obsessed with the subtle crescent moon on this one!
Debuting my shorter haircut and edgier color with new Just G items! Going inside Just G recently has filled me with so much glee, seeing how they’re slowly transitioning from their super bright and colorful S/S collection to a more neutral but still distinctly girly F/W collection.
For a change, I veered away from all the blue and cutesy floral prints this time, and instead wore light colors and neutrals. How can I not? I still haven’t gotten over my hair transformation, and color clashing would be the last thing I want. As one friend said, “It’s like you had one of those major makeovers on ANTM!” NGL, those makeover episodes are my guilty pleasures.
I spotted two army-ish jackets on the racks, got possessed by the Just G spirit, and wore them with contrasting girly elements. If you were expecting me to wear them the cliche way with badass accessories and combat boots, you probably haven’t hung out here long enough to know how I roll.
I think I live for juxtapositions.
This white eyelet tube dress is something that people would normally pair with sandals and flower crowns, but I decided to go for a more modern luxe appeal by pairing it with gold accessories and pointy ankle-strap wedges.
Camo-print and shiny sequins together makes for a perfect day-to-night look.
This jacket is everything! The fact that you can tighten/adjust the waist part to how you want it to look like (i.e. tight style would emphasize the female silhouette while loose style would look great with a pair of black skinny jeans for a more androgynous feel) makes it all the more deserving for a place in every girl’s closet.
Counting down the days until I just totally give up on accessorizing. I’ve been stuck in a rut recently, though it’s proving to be a good exercise in terms of challenging myself to wear the least number of extra items (besides the essentials to cover my body parts, lol) without looking incomplete or underdressed.
Today marks the unofficial final day of stressing out for that secret project I’ve been talking about. Unofficial because I still might have to do some final touches. Only until then can I officially say that I’m free! Thankfully, my trip to Hong Kong with Crissey last August got rebooked to next week, because we were supposed to fly on that unfortunate day when the runway got flooded by Maring/Habagat. Anyhow, good thing we decided to put our safety first! I wouldn’t have been able to relax anyway, knowing that my project wasn’t finished yet.
Only a matter of days or weeks now before I can finally make an announcement. It’s on its way to completion but I don’t want to jinx it by pre-empting. Scared and excited!
