Zebra Stripes

If you see a dress modeled by a Victoria's secret vixen Miranda Kerr in a fashion boutique catalog, what's the chance of you wearing it better? Nil.  Nada. Null.  Zero.  Absolute zip.  Haha! This number with contrasting neutrals is something that I will never miss from Mango.  The material, albeit figure-hugging, will always be work-appropriate for me.  In the catalog, Miranda wore it with a huge black belt (like seriously, is there a need to emphasize her already minuscule waist? :)) but thankfully, this yet-another monochrome vest has always got my back (or rather my waist, haha!).  Didn't wanna deviate from the theme, I wore it with my comfy snakeskin print pumps. :)

Dots & Lace

This skirt, aside from being a steal from Topshop on a discounted price being the last of its size, has become a yardstick of how much I gain weight. :P  The fit is just right (and makes no leeway for any size increase whatsoever) when I first saw it and stubbornly insisted to buy it using the excuse "office-wearable". Luckily, for times when I slack on my diet a peplum top comes to the rescue to keep off those bulges when it feels too tight. :P

P.S.  I really need to start measuring my weight and don't just depend on clothes to tell me my body's status.  Hehe. :D

Hint of Gold!

This combination is memorable because its something quick that I came up with in that morning.  The inspiration came from the gold skinny belt that my Aunt left at home.  I thought I might as well use it while it's there.  Haha.  I created a blue color scheme by pairing my trumpet dress with that cobalt blue blazer from Mango (that will forever remind me of Kate Moss in that Mango cover).  It has some gold buttons that perfectly match the gold tip teal shoes.  For the accessories, I opted for a different hue with some emerald-like layered necklace.  And oh, I remember having a movie date in that afternoon too! :P
