Wednesday is school girl day, a self-proclaimed theme dress-up day for me and my BFF Nina wherein we dress as preppy as possible. I love playing dress up and we’ve been having this tradition long before we stopped about a year and a half ago since we ran out of themes to come up with. We resurrected that yet again recently since she went back to school and took up a fashion course. I am not exactly the preppy girl and I am more into the cutesy quirky stuff than pique shirts and khakis so I decided to make my look geared towards the more doll-like version of your typical schoolgirl.
To do such was simple. I had to make the theme as close to “me” as possible and so I replaced the plaid skirt with a glitter tulle full miniskirt and the uniform-style blazer with an acid wash denim jacket which screams the trademark girly girliness and my rocker-studded twist that I make sure I add in most outfits I wear. I loved the effect the denim jacket had on the metallic hot pink skirt since it was a great contrast… the acid wash somehow neutralized the shocking glossy pink. I wore it with an inner white tanktop which I added since I meant for that to match what I had going on in my feet- white socks and studded denim heels. I am seriously loving the socks with heels trend…it’s the ultimate solution to cute-ifying an outfit. To complete the look, I wore geek glasses which everyone seemed to notice that day, including my dad who at dinner poked fun at my full on nerdy look. I never wear glasses since I always preferred contacts to flaunt my hobby of experimenting with eye makeup shades but I made an exception for this day. My peg was Reese Witherspoon in Election crossed with Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. Dress up day is so much fun and I recommend all of your guys to try it out with your BFFs! I love how my style totally made a complete 180-degree turn yet again from the all black bustier I had going on in the last post to this. I swear, I have no consistency at all when I dress up…but doesn’t that just make it much more fun?
PS: See you all at SuperSale this weekend!
