Sundry Fashion Fusion

Posts Tagged ‘Beige

This past week, I met up with my old officemates and I must say, one thing I miss about working in retail (more than the free clothes) is wearing power outfits. Since, I left, my style changed because of my current job and just a whole lot of changes in my environment as well. There are just times when I miss the style side of the corporate world or just the plain and different attitude you have when you power dress.

I don’t know but masculine outfits really look sophisticated and sexy on a woman. Sorry for the bias, men. Haha. But don’t you just agree? It brings out an aggressive and confident attitude that says, “I mean business.” And sometimes, or well, more often than not, in the corporate world, you kind of need that confidence to be able to step up and be noticed.

I really want that white, tailored suit that they wear on the red carpet. It’s just hard to find one and well, wear it here on a normal day. I guess this is just a step closer in quenching that frustration of mine.

I had a great time seeing the world that I left behind. I felt no regrets at all. I just miss the people I used to work with. They’ve evolve into my friends. Well, not all. But you know what I mean. I hope we get to hang-out and just catch up more often.

Have you ever placed yourself in situation wherein you just realize, “What the hell am I doing here?”

I have. Haha.

I went there, feeling oh so confident. I wasn’t really humiliated. But it was just a pair of shoes that wasn’t really the right fit for me.

It was just me seeing that, I was not meant to be there or at the very least I just didn’t belong there. When I was able to get myself out of the situation, I just found it to be plain funny! I mean, it was my fault anyway, I went there thinking I could actually pull-it off. But after a few tests, I heard myself saying, “What the hell am I doing here?” Hahahaha!

I was able to find my graceful exit anyway. Hehe. And what the hell right? After everything, I just said “Oh well!”, and shopped the day away! Hahaha!

At least, I was still wearing something fabulous! Hahahaahah! Oh, why am I so giddy?! Hehe.

Lately, I find myself going back to specific eras for fashion themes. When I open my closet, pieces like this dress would stand out because it looks like it came from a specific era.

Or I would find plain, modern dresses and be able to twist it into something more retro. This is me being costume-y again. Haha. I really think I wear clothes like a costume. Haha.

Hmmm.. I really think I’m into headbands lately. But I haven’t made the debut of wearing a headband here at the office. Haha. Maybe, if I have more time in the morning.

Hmm… I wish I can find something for a 1920’s look! Haha.

Glamorous, Glamorous, Glamorous.

I really like the glammed-up fashion statements of all the eras that have come and gone.

First of all, I’d like to thank my sponsor, Kia, for giving me this wonderful dress. Hahahaha!

During one of our Rummage Sale, while I was helping Kia sort out her stuff, I could not believe she was throwing it out! So I rescued the dress and took it home with me. I immediately knew what to do with it.

It IS bigger but with just a little adjustments here and there, its size created such a poofy, poofy skirt silhoutte—which I really, really love!

It also feels and looks like one of those classic 80’s dresses which I think I saw my mom wear in one of our photos.

I love this dress!! Only goes to show that another person’s trash can be another person’s treasure. 😉

Pardon the abundant photos— I really enjoyed taking pics of this one. 🙂
