It's almost 11 PM and I'm still in the office. Yup, up until my very last day at work I am still grinding my gears hard to finish my deliverables (at least most of them anyway). I'm looking forward to getting that fresh start, yet a part of me is frightened. I have no idea what to expect and ironically, that's all part of the excitement.
Anyway, I went to this fashion show event by the graduating Fashion Students from DLS-CSB (it took place at the Rockwell Tent and was entitled Altered Perspective). I went with two of my work friends, Rae and Aldrin. We had dinner at Banana Leaf and drinks afterwards with Mark at Draft. Too bad I was feeling out of sorts and my flu was well on its way, we had to part ways early.
I'm not usually very edgy and when I got invites to see this show, I was so afraid I'd have nothing to wear, and with very little time to squeeze in any shopping at all, I knew I just had to close my eyes, draw from my closet, and hope for the best. I can't drown in a sea of people and personalities from the media and the fashion world. My neon numbers just won't cut it. My strategy: go basic and simple, aim for sophistication and throw in a little spunk into the mix.
Good thing I had this new leatherette skirt (with the tag on still!) and deep navy blue ever-reliable top from Forever 21 and unused booties from Forever 21. My bag was also new, a beautiful blue bag from Tory Burch. You can never go wrong with going basic, sticking with a deep palette and a punch of gold to further accentuate and complement my next big accessory - the bag. Hope it worked! :)
