I know I still look like a fashion backward old maiden with that outfit, but at least I managed to show a little skin without getting too conscious. I’m proud of myself, because I’m no longer as conservative as before. ’Nuff said. Now, let me share you the short story behind this ensemble. I had a hard time mixing and matching this getup. I was supposed to wear the top with black shorts to match their black details, but I couldn’t find the latter. I didn’t have time to rummage our tiny closet, because I was rushing for school. So to solve the dilemma, I borrowed my Mom’s skin tone tube undergarment to match with the cream pants, brown bag and flats. Voila! I ditched the black and floral style concept that instant.
Well, yes I did get some malicious gazes on the way but I perfectly know how to retaliate, and besides I know how to move in such a way that I won’t come off as someone who tempts. I dress and, of course, act with the way I want others to treat me. I can say with pride and delight that I’m a decent woman who just wants to explore her fashion ideas by sprucing up. In this outfit’s case, balancing is key. Cover up the upper part if you want a revealing bottom and vice versa, but remember not to expose the body that extreme. Looking like a bombshell is different from looking like a stripper! On that note, I just would like to tell you that we can dress out of our comfort zone, but definitely not out of the bounds. Have a good day, folks! And see you soon… Cosmopolites!
