I imagine that this would be the most perfect dress for me to wear if I were to decide to get my night life back to existence (which I don't have plans to, don't worry...) However, as this dress was truly meant to be worn, I did get the chance to wear it for an appropriate event which was our version of The Last Supper with my brother at Stockton Place before he left for Spain. In honor of him, I decided I wanted to dress in elements that represented Spain which was the red detail and the cross design (given that like the Philippines, a former colony of Spain, it is a predominantly Catholic country.) Now I do miss my brother immensely but seeing his photos from Spain as he explores the landscape and the architecture basically proves that this was the perfect outfit choice for his last night back here in the Philippines. Of course, the dress was the highlight of my entire outfit so I decided to keep all things minimal and simple, including my accessories, my hair and my makeup. If you notice I am again wearing my hair sleek and straight...not because it is a personal preference but because it was the perfect hairstyle that went with the outfit. You know me, when I dress up, it is all about the entire package and I try to make my look consistent and put together from head to toe. I guess I tend to really over-think and intellectualize my outfits a lot and they have to make sense to me on a cognitive level before I put them on... but that's what you get when you combine someone who operates on too much logic and rationalization with fashion. I refuse to ever be caught off-guard and every detail is planned so meticulously that sometimes, I think I have to use my brain power for other things.
