I wore this weeks ago to a work related charity event, however somehow displaced the images in the assemblage of other high-priority tasks. It reminded me of what I wear in times of feeling uninspired or during moments of not wanting to go toward my bold and bright hues. There are a few fashion elements that brings more than a smile to my face other than bold colour, one is lace (obviously), and ruffles or embellishments whether complexly trimmed or subtly adorned.
This was one of those days when I knew I was going to wear black because let's face it, wearing black can generally go for most if not all occasions.
It was a busy week. Although slightly dispirited, the uplifting part of my outfit was definitely the top. Thanks to the frills, (that semi-dramatic feminine shoulder detailing) my mood got far better. Sometimes the trick is in the details of dressing; you may not feel the outfit speak to you until you completely step into it.
It was a feel good ensemble, not glamourous or amazing, nor too over the top—merely what was needed for my style situation! When you're in a dull fashion phase just revert to those elements that make you feel good. Perhaps it's your favourite bauble or pencil skirt ... the most important thing to remember is always you! If you like it, wear it. Don't let others steal the thrill of something that makes you happy. If you are feeling confident in something, then wear it cheerfully!
