SKATER SKIRT

Yesterday, I decided to look as preppy as possible. I have been feeling like wearing my high school uniform for soo long (even if the last time I wore one was almost 10 years ago), I have just been into the preppy mode of late. So I had to come up with a creative idea to make it work. As you all know, I work in an investment bank which has very strict dress code. So how do you make preppy professionally accepted, I decided I had to forgo the socks and the headband (that would be too Blair Waldorf) but I still went with the skater skirt and stripes and this was my result.


 Not too shabby and not too teenage like but still maintained the preppy feel of the entire outfit, which was what I was going for.


 I also tried to be as playful as possible in the snapshots and I tried to wrap my braids too


 Maybe next time I would incorporate a tie and see the resultant effect but till then I just used a necklace as a substitute. And the beauty of the skirt is in the flare, at least I think so.

What do you think? I believe I rocked a preppy but corporate wear (my opinion by the way, what's your?).

Suit And Tie

If you remember correctly, I showed you all My Big Reveal. So today you would be seeing it in an outfit. I woke up with Angelina Jolie's outfit to BAFTA award on my mind so I decided to replicate it while adding my own touch to the ensemble.


 Yeah, I tried it out with a white lace top. Different but me right?


 My ultimate goal was to take the look and make it as ladylike as possible without ruining the effect of the suit and tie. I loved the outcome and received lots of complements on it.
I also decide to play with grey, black and blue as my basics.
 What are your thoughts. Do you think my way of replication is cool or I should just stick to basic white shirt?














SLIVER AND GOLD, I GOT BOTH

Am so sorry dearies for being unavailable for soo long, had to travel impromptu. Even after I got back, I was swamped with work but the good news is that I got to see my mum during her birthday which was totally amazing.

Anyway, today's outfit is from last week (can't really remember the day I wore it). If you have been following me on Instagram you would have seen this look on there.

Alright on my outfit, I wore an all black outfit to work and even though it felt blah to me, my boss was of the opinion that I looked like I was going for a party. As yours truly heard that, I took a snapshot of the outfit. It is not everyday my boss acknowledges my look lol.


The skirt is an old skirt my mum got me in my first year at school but I hardly wore it. Going home this past few weeks I decided to bring with me some of my old clothes and I love the mix of old and kind of new.
Would you rock suck a look to work?, would love to hear your thoughts.





TURBAN DAY

My first attempt at incorporating a turban without wearing a trad went amazing well. I have been tying turbans and scarves a lot lately (and no it isn't religious more like my culture) but never tried it with a top and pants. So today, I decided to break that norm and use a turban with whatever I choose to wear. Hence, this outfit. What are your thoughts?.
