B is for Brooch

Went out for meet ups last Friday. I expected a busy day, so I decided to wear something roomy like this thrifted floral dress. I already used this as long top before! Might cut it next time and convert it into a cover up or something, haha. 

To give the sack-dress some shape, I pinned the back with the quirky double brooch I made for Anagon Collection:

Some quotes on the BROOCH: (from Nina Garcia's The One Hundred)
The uninitiated associate the brooch with grandmothers and great-aunts and think it is only worn on the neckline of dresses. But the fashionable are aware that it is capable of so much more. It is an accessory that allows you to show off your creative side.

Decided to amp up another B from Style A-Z list: The Ballet Flats. 
I realized that I have too much basic black shoes, that it's ok to reconstruct my plain pair from Australian:

More photos from that day:

Had an afternoon coffee break with Melai in Greenbelt after my meet ups and before watching Black Swan with Ana. This girl never runs out of stories, haha! :) Nice to have another bonding time with a fellow blogger. Till the next! :)

Other Bs:

- BlackBerry
- Black Opaque Tights
- Blazer
- Boyfriend Cardigan
