Earthy

I think one of the most difficult color to pull off is green. It’s a color that only suits some people. A dash of green here and there is easy, but an all-green ensemble is tricky. And you know me–my style is safe, plain, and minimalist. If I can avoid bold colors and styles, I would. But sometimes experimenting is good, how else were we able to identify the clothes that suit us if not for that little adventure at the mall or in our bedroom? So when Rosegal offered to send me a product for review, I chose the color which I’m not quite comfortable at wearing; after all I got nothing to lose.

The package arrived about two weeks ago and this is what Rosegal.com said it would look:

I chose the Zipper Sleeveless Simple Style Polyester Round Neck Women’s Dress because I thought it would be great for work. I’m not the pantsuit kind of girl; I like wearing dresses because they make one look very feminine. And this is how the product actually looks:

The dress I received does not 100% look like the dress posted on the website, but nonetheless quality is excellent. The stitching was even, which is my primary concern when buying online, and has qualities that are similar to their claim, like the gold zipper at the back and the material:

The only thing missing was the belt. It wasn’t mentioned on the website that the belt is not included so I assumed it is. Apparently not. Luckily, I have one that matches the dress perfectly.

I might have chosen the wrong size as the waist part was quite loose. I think the dress would look more stunning if the skirt was more flared and the neck part more closed, like the one posted on the website. Other than those points though, the dress was pretty and very well made.

Also I realized after seeing the photos, green is not that intimidating–it’s the contrary actually, very refreshing. Sometimes we do have to risk some things in life in order to find what’s best for us. Without doing so, we are preventing ourselves from seeing all the other possibilities and opportunities the world can offer us–fashion-wise and life-wise. 🙂

Sexy White Shirt

One of the wardrobe staples every woman should have is a good v-neck white shirt. It’s simple, comfy, and can be paired with just about anything.

Yesterday I woke up 15 minutes before class and I didn’t have enough time to put an outfit together. I grabbed my cotton v-neck shirt from Sexy White Shirt, a matching skirt and flats.

What’s great about this plain v-neck shirt, despite its simplicity, is it doesn’t make you look drab and dull. Whenever I see a person wearing one, I often think of her as someone cool and laid-back—two qualities that I really like.

I arrived at school past one o’clock; I was very late so I was frantically running along the halls of Palma Building. I was quite lucky to have unconsciously chosen this ensemble, it was so easy to move in. So what’s the lesson here? Make sure you have your most comfortable shirt and flats ready in case you’re running late for class. LOL.

After that class I had to go straight to work. Obviously I could not come in wearing a mini skirt and flats, so I made sure I brought a pencil skirt and a pair of pumps.

IMGP0829

People don’t normally associate v-neck shirts with corporate looks, but I thought why not give it a try? I’ve always had this image in my head about pairing casual and corporate pieces. I’ve never done it until recently, so you can imagine my delight upon discovering they actually looked great together.

It’s probably because the look creates a balance between ease and formality, which is something that I always gravitate towards, style-wise at least. Not too flashy, but at the same time not too simple. What do you think about how I styled my sexy white shirt? 😛
