I'm not too comfortable taking pictures of myself, so pardon the cheeky face I have on. Anyway, back to the dress.
I love vintage silhouettes and styles, that's why I was drawn to this one. This is the actually the costume of the lead actress in my film. (Yes, I'm a film grad)
I think Joy wears it better though. Teehee. It has a button up front with a lace detail, and is much greener and warmer in person.
It has a collar too. I kept the two top buttons, well, unbuttoned to keep it from looking too dated.
I also love the little stitch details of the fabric.
This is part of my "I want to--" list. I want to wear more dresses because my jeans are rather, ah, constricting as of late, and I want to look more feminine. The only problem is that I commute to work everyday. And that means I ride a tricycle, a jeepney, and a bus to be able to get to the office. I admit that I'm such a cheapskate with taking a cab to work, but hey. This particular dress however, rates a cool 4.5 out of 5 for being commuter friendly.
To tell you honestly, I'm not too sure if this whole outfit works. I usually pair the dress with a deep brown braided belt and yellow peep-toe flats. But ever since the flood, the shoes and belt went bye-bye.
Do tell me what you think, ok? Any comment regarding this look is highly appreciated.
Rest of the outfit details:
Black cardigan by DC Classics - bought at SM Megamall Department Store
Red belt - I forgot the brand, but I also bought it at SM Megamall Department Store
Black satin sandals by Primadonna
A huge thanks to my colleague, Angee for lending her camera and photographing the dress details. This is why I need to buy a decent, small camera.
