27 Dress-ups 03: Off to Party Weekends

Here's a tribute to the most anticipated days of the week - WEEKENDS.

Of course, to have some relief of all the stresses incurred during the week, some working people love partying the night away on Fridays and Saturdays. Well, I'm not really a party girl, and I've actually never been to a club before, but if I were going there, maybe here's what I would wear...
Got this hot leopard print dress at 350 bucks from Jewels. I just love how it gives you a sexy silhouette. And my leopard print sunnies surely match them.
 Because the print is loud already, no need for big and bold accessories. The 2-tone leather and espadrille wedges are stylish enough to pull the look off together and make your feet last throughout the night.

And oh yes, I wore this at the office. (Sorry boyfie. I know you might not approve.) Surely got the "fashionista" comments and vibes from my workmates. Hehe.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, these 27 dress-up photos are all taken when I reach home. They're all morning-after photos which is why I look a little washed and worn out already. Haha. Happy weekend everybody!

27 Dress-Ups 02: Laid Back Gray

I love wearing dresses. They're so easy-breezy! With a touch of a few accessories, any dress can create a great chic look. Of course, the dress has to have a nice print or color and just the right shape that could perfect accent the feminine curves.

When it comes to colors, one of the most versatile is surely gray. It looks complimentary to almost any skin color, I think. Of course, to remove the dullness, it can be mixed with colorful and also complimentary accessories. This time, I wore it with my tribal necklace and my pink flats from Paris (from Mom's recent Eurotrip. Hehe).
This dress from Forever 21 surely fuses comfort, style and functionality into one. As you can see here, it actually has pockets so if you're a light traveler, no need for any purse at all for your essentials.
And yes, this is really office worthy. This look's the cross between semi-formal and business casual so it's a big check for our dress-up weekdays. Not to mention, it's also so comfy to wear amid the work stress. Hehe.
It's a little overexposed (little then over, haha) with the shots taken from our backyard so I took this photo in our living room just so you could see the actual print and the tribal necklace.
Have a chill rest of the week.

27 Dress-Ups 01: Pegging Prim and Proper

Hey everyone! Feels good to be blogging again!

Got my very first parcel yesterday! I ordered 3 tops and a vest from an online shop for the very first time also last week and my orders arrived when I was sleeping last Saturday. Imagine my half-dazed surprise when I woke up and a torn parcel was beside my pillow already. Mom got excited and carried away so she ripped em up herself when it arrived, according to her. Haha.

Was quite disappointed with the peach top there tho. It was white in the photo and yet it arrived that way. Haha. Anyway, they're all so pretty and fab so it's okay! And they were such a bargain! I got them at Buy 1 Take 1 @ 350 from Supra Fame. I must say, online shopping was quite satisfying, I know I'll do it again some time. Hehe. Can't wait to wear 'em all! :D

In other news:

It's back to dress-up weekdays in the office, but of course, we won't settle for looking dull and uptight. I decided to challenge myself with 27 different looks that would qualify in our dress-up rule, without sacrificing being fab.

Just to give a general idea what are the do's and don'ts during dress-up days, let me enumerate some of the general mandates:

  • No plain tees. Jackets or blazers must be worn on top if T-shirts are worn.
  • No leggings (except for preggies) and jeans. Slacks and skirts are preferred.
  • No sleeveless and anything revealing. Dresses must be at least 3 inches above the kneecap or longer.
  • Shoes must have at least an inch of heels. (But our team leader told me that flats are acceptable for closed shoes)
So here's my first look - 27 Dress-Ups 01: Pegging Prim and Proper
I've worn this dress as a top before, and now I decided to "set all its colors free." Teehee! I paired it with a knit cardigan and my vintage beige shoes to create a preppy chick look.
The vintage necklace and Asian-inspired cuff added a trinket-load of fun flair to the look.

Of course, the printed sunnies top it all off to give off a cool, stylish vibe. Comfort and style will always be my main considerations in my looks. And...
Bottom line is: whatever you wear, JUST HAVE FUN WITH IT! :D
