Queen Bee

I'm fairly certain that if this were our high school uniform, I wouldn't look so prim and proper like below. But I love this style so much that I don't give up on recreating the look even if it means I'd have to wear this to work. Haha! But hey, costume holidays would be a nice excuse anyway. :D And what better inspiration to draw from than Queen Bee herself? I believe I've always been a Serena van der Woodsen kind of girl but allow me to be a Blair Waldorf this time. :)

Pleated Culottes

A skirt-trouser hybrid – this is what makes this piece tough to pull off. It is also the reason why I’ve had this for a long time but wore it only a couple of times thinking it’s not that bad since like the PVC skirt in my last post, I got it also on sale from the same shop. :P

But with its recent resurgence in the runways, countless inspiring ways have emerged to wear this wide-leg bottoms  and I just couldn’t help being inspired. So, in a matter of months, I’ve managed to wear it in three ways as seen in my other blog here. :P But my personal favorite would have to be the one below: with my inspiration for losing weight this year – the cropped top (haha!) and a tailored jacket.

My favorite feeling is whenever I walk down the stairs.  What with its volume, yes it flows and sways but no need to fear on seeing undergarments because it is essentially a pants. Haha!

When this skirt first caught my eye, it was on sale. The color is neutral and makes for an easy palette. Plus, it has my size. What’s there not to like? My friend Ana reacted in a way that says – “Go! Only you can pull that off.”  But seriously, PVC in a pencil cut is just like any other normal work skirt. Need further proof? Check the three ways I wore it here. It’s just a material that can be quite uncomfortable at first and inconvenient if you’re not in a say, well-ventilated area. Paired with a white buttondown below, it couldn’t be more office-appropriate.  J

I don't have much to say about this dress except that this is an old one, like more than 6 years ago. I bought it for a cocktail party (a phone launch) when I was still working for Samsung. I was also 10 pounds heavier then perhaps, if I may add. Haha! Back then I wasn't much into trends and I don't know if this animal print is going to make it to a leopard or cheetah status so as to proclaim it "the new black". What are the chances? I can't tell. But I like it and I love wearing dresses from way back.

I ditched the original belt included with this dress ( a plain black one) and used my leopard belt to channel Katy Perry's songs - Roar and Peacock. Hahaha! :D
