Theoritically Overdone: Zebra N Red


Rummaging through my closet last night, I stumbled upon this fire engine red wedges I haven't worn for quite some time. For me, they are difficult to match with anything since the color already 'screams' by itself. A coworker even said that she remembered me on her day of interview because at that time I was wearing these flashy babies!
However, I took it as a challenge and match the wedges with another bold pieces of fashion statement: the zebra print bag with red piping across the sides, and the strong geometrical. Missoni-inspired patterned top, also worn in this post here.
Hence, the formula is:
BOLD + BOLD +BOLD
Yeah, yeah, I know the experts always say: don't overdo it, just let one piece shine by itself, bla bla bla. But I have to say, this is how I ended up look like, it's not my usual style, and I rather like it! So, let the experts dress the models, and let me dress moi, haha!
Missoni-inspired tank: H&M. Fuschia lacy tank top: unbranded. Black blazer: Brooks Brothers Woman. Black slacks: office uniform by Invio. Zebra bag: Debenhams. Red sandals: Little India, Singapore. Earrings: Pretty, MKG.


Also, I got my first thrift-find feature at http://www.recycled-fashion.com/. It's a blog by a resourceful and creative lady whose name is Erica, who believes that “Fashion doesn't have to cost the earth, financially or environmentally.”
Cannot agree more! Thank you, Erica, for featuring my post among soooo many other wonderful linkups!
