L is for Little Black Dress

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

This is a black dress, but my camera's flash made it look navy, hehe:
The Base of the many costume changes for that day!

First of all, I know, I skipped K--because the only 2 Ks in The One Hundred list are Knee Boots and Khakis--Both I currently don't have, haha! I'll get my hands on a pair of khaki trousers or shorts tomorrow, hehe. :P Parang ang cute since summer naman! :)

Anyway, L is for the Little Black Dress: the most sulit investment garment you can ever buy for yourself. Timeless, ba. As Nina Garcia said in her book: "Consider your LBD a black canvass instead of a fallback. It demands to be accessorized and adorned."

So I wore my Get Laud jersey LBD on a Wednesday na may two events ako...

For the afternoon cocktail party by Mary Kay, I wore it with this really weird and colorful cropped top my mom used daw nung bininyagan ako (I have a thing for clothes with sentimental value):
Accessorized with a brown hat (not in pic, haha), brown drivers shoes (Hush Puppies), and earth-tone neck-piece from Anagon. Kahit super weird ng look ko because of my mom's dalaga-top, I love that I was able to wear it again, and my mom was super pleased. :)

Later that day, I went straight to Members Only for an intimate late afternoon affair for Prive Presentation of Nominees. With the venue and the time, I decided to change into my DIY leopard cover up, wore a champagne statement necklace I made for Anagon, and changed into my black H&M booties (my favorite comfy heels!) :

Later on that night, during barx Kitchen and Cable Car hangout, I just wore the black dress with the black booties. It was super fun for me to play with my LBD...Ang bigat nga lang ng bag ko after all the "costume changes", harharhar. ;P

"Remember, the reason the simple garment is so enduring is because it understands the essence of style: to step back and let the woman shine. So shine."

Leather Pants
Little White Dress
