Black & Gold

Shirt - Bench | Blazer - thrifted | Chain print skirt - DYMS | Wedges - Parisian | Necklace & bracelet - Lovechild Vintage

This is not exactly what I wore today. Since we have a fake/strict dress code at work, I wore black tights [after these photos were taken] to avoid getting that you-have-sinned stare from the guards and the bosses in the office. Got lazy, ditched the wedges, and went for my gold flats instead.

The thing about dress codes is that it can be both challenging and disappointing. There are times when I like to challenge myself into putting together an outfit that can be dress-code-friendly and chic at the same time. But most of the time, I get depressed when I dress myself up for work because I can't wear my clothes exactly the way I want to wear them. As a result, I lose the mood to be all dolled up and I end up wearing the wrong things. Therefore, I hate abhor dress codes with all my heart.

Anyway, aren't you surprised to see me in a skirt like this? I know, this is something new but I'm lovin it! Had it hemmed over the weekend because I like my skirts ultra short. Haha. Isn't it gorgeous? My workpal Dyms of gave it to me last week! *Thanks a bunch Dyms!!!xx*

You guys should go check out her blog and be ready with your "Wow" cuz you'll be saying that a lot once you're there! [Even I am guilty of that.] I swear it's definitely worth following!

Oh, and one last thing, I wanna thank my cousin Ida who woke up early and took these photos for me! XD I'm currently trying to bribe her into taking my photos everyday for my blog. She ain't a pro but isn't that what a camera's auto focus is for? lol. So dear cousin Ida, if by any chance you accidentally stumble upon this blog and read this part, please bear with me and keep taking my pictures! I'll buy you isaw and kwek-kwek [streetfoods] everyday! That's all for now, byers!
