What do you think of today's outfit post? Too glam? That's what my Mom said when she saw me donning on the pearly, rhinestone-studded, bow F21 necklace for work. "Won't your boss complain about your outfit, dear? Isn't that necklace a bit over-the-top for work?" And I replied: "Mom, my boss is a man. He couldn't care less what I wore for work, as long as I get my work done well, on time, and just like any other men, he won't make any comments about a woman's clothes as long as it looks somewhat okay."
Well, first of all, I used to work in a commercial building with lots of temptations called: convenience stores, coffee shops, trendy restaurants, exhibitions, bazaars, and numerous knick-knack shops that sell unuseful but oh-so-cute kitsch stuffs. AND, there are like a dozen or so malls scattered around the area that are reachable just with a short taxi hop. Imagine. I used to spend one-third of my working days in an area surrounded by shopping paradise. How nice. Not so for the wallet.
Still, sometimes I miss that intoxicating glam feeling from my younger years. So, once in a while I dress up like when I used to work in downtown. The best thing is, now I do just because I want to, when I want to, not because I have to everyday.
Brocade tunic top: Glitter Glam, Isetan. Black wrapped skirt: tailor made. Off-white jacket: H&M. Red obi belt: Mom's vintage, worn backwards. Pearl earrings: thrifted. Necklace: F21. Gold shoes: Voir. Suede purse: Nordstrom. Bangles: Shanghai and Le Marie.
Then I got inspiration from this picture from A Shoe Tale blog that the top might look good tucked in.
What do you think, Friends? Tucked in, or not?
Also, I just found out that I got featured at Adorned From Above at their 20th link party on October 3, 2012 as one of the most viewed post! I'm so glad! Thank you, Ms. Debi!
You can read my featured post titled Pink Puff N Chiffon Clouds here. I wrote about femininity and masculinity as the topic of that particular post. :)
