Looking back to how I was before, I must say, I changed and grew up…major. I was just talking about it with a group of friends recently and we have all noticed how we are no longer into the whole clubbing scene… I guess I got too much of it that I kind of outgrew it. In the past, I used to go “clubbing” on a minimum of 3 x a week. It was a crazy lifestyle and I was literally a nocturnal creature. I didn’t even rememer how a day with sun at noon looked like back then. Proud to say, I got more disciplined and am much tamer now since I only get to do nightouts about once a month…. if there is an occasion that begs for it. Clubbing isn’t really my scene anymore. I’ve actually accumulated so much clubbing wear that I never got to wear anymore due to my lack of opportunity to wear them to. However, last Friday, I decided to step it up and wear one of said outfits. I didn’t really go clubbing and had a nice not-so-quiet night with a group of friends over at Rockwell then at the Fort. It was fun to let loose every now and then but we basically hung out in a nice lounge/bar rather than go full force to a club.
I wanted to dress up for a Friday night out and I chose this studded bustier which is my tribute to that whole innerwear as outerwear lingerie-inspired dressing trend. The bustier is cut and is only till the waist (kind of like an extended bra) and since I did not want to go too revealing, I wore it with a highwaist Topshop fringe skirt. I originally wanted to wear the bustier with a different highwaist skirt but I realized that I lost too much weight this year that the highwaist effect was impossible to achieve since all the highwaist skirts were going all low waist on me. Went studded to the max with accessories and was set to go.
