I am looking through my blog posts and it makes me sad that this is only the first time I've posted this month and February is almost over. Hopefully I'll make it up in March! This was an outfit I wore to a belated Valentine's Day date to one of my favorite restaurants, Alpha. They have the best cocktails and some amazing izakaya dishes around town. Their TORO PORK and MENTAIKO UDON are my must-eats. If you haven't been there, you need to try it out.
Here I am wearing a fuschia hi-low blouse from Mink Pink that I got from J2. I absolutely love the hi-low cut, especially in dresses and skirts, giving them an added glamorous flair. I wasn't in the mood for dressing up super girlie, so I went for a faux leather jacket and black ankle boots to make it look more edgy. If you take a look at the runway photos for the up-and-coming 2013 styles, you would notice that there are lots of eccentric cuts and crops to your average wear. When a piece contains such exquisite and surprising details, it really captures you and gives you a jolt of excitement.
With that said, it's not always about staying in trend, but more so about wearing what represents you. It's hard not to care about what other people think about your clothes or YOU for that matter, but none of that matters more than just being you. Sometimes we don't even know who we are supposed to be and it takes lots of work and reflection to figure it out. That's why we experiment - preppy, sexy, rocker chic, bohemian, posh, etc - this is a way for us to try it out to see if we fit into that category. And that's why when you ask someone to describe their style, it always goes something like "well I'm ____ with a bit of ____ and a dash of ___". We are more than just a category.
Thanks for listening =)
