A is for A-Line Dress

I thought of doing a themed series of blog entries again, ala the 30 Days of Photographic Memories I did last year. This time, I'll base it on this book I got from my sisters during my birthday:

...And call it, the Style A-Z.


The plan or project is basically to wear one item listed in every letter (pag tinapos ko yung 100 pieces baka maloka ako haha). I'll style the chosen item based on occasion or on my own personality. As said in the author's note: "..self-editing is key".

"...I have adapted and edited each item on this list to suit my style, my body, my personality." 

So that's 36 days of style for me!

For letter A, I chose the first item from the list: The A-Line Dress.

Worn last February 14, the first day of my bazaar gig in La Salle. I decided to wear my white eyelet dress from SM to look presentable and stylish while selling fashion accessories--but still feel comfortable since this dress is roomy. I think a white A-line is also very hippie-ish, which is my kind of style. :) 

To quote from the book:

- A true a-line is narrower on the top and flares out gently toward the bottom, resembling the letter A, thus the name. 

- It is a no-fuss dress and perhaps that is why it was the must-have dress of the 60s, when fun and free-spiritedness was favored over formality and structure of the prior decade.

- With a good A-line, the fabric flows over perceived flaws or imperfections.

- No matter the day, the season, or the year, the A-line dress will always make you look and feel fashionable, fabulous..."


Coincidentally, it was also Valentine's Day, so it's nice to be all lady-like and pa-pretty ba. Decided to wear my winged heart necklace, to celebrate narin siguro the day of hearts:



The Other As:
- Animal Print
- Ankle Bootie
-Aviators
