I ordered this dress sometime in the beginning of the summer, and I finally got the chance to wear it when I went out for dinner with my mom and sister recently. And then Lydia and I both agreed that it would be the perfect dress for our little photo shoot in greyscale last weekend. I intend to give it another spin tomorrow evening when I go out to dinner with my friend Jenny, it’s proving to be that perfect “little black dress”.
P.S I’ve seen a sneak peek of the photo shoot Lydia and I did. I died. Yes, yes, promise to show you as soon as I can. The photos aren’t scanned yet. Must. have. patience.
I need to stop trying on shoes at work, because I keep falling in love with them. Last week I slipped into a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti suede platform pumps that made me look at my legs in a way I never have before – with admiration. Yesterday I tried on a pair of the Valencia ankle boots by Stella McCartney, and was surprised at how much I liked them. They looked so different on, as opposed to how they looked in the box.
Here’s what I wore to work on Friday. Please excuse my bleak expression in the photo above, I wasn’t at all as grumpy as I look (quite the contrary actually). These red, grey, and brown heels are hot, but they’re not very kind on my feet… Oh, the things we do for fashion.
Here’s WIWOT (What I Wore On Thursday). A pretty dress with black ballerinas. I let the accessories contrast the sweetness of the rest of the outfit. I love this dress, mostly because it reminds me of one of my summers in the US. I found it in a cute little boutique in the small town outside Boston where my aunt lives.
