yey, first chictopia post!
i’ve been on the site for about 3 months now and i thought i should probably end my anonymity and lurking ways…
…and start going the path of…art and self-expression
(OR vanity and self-promotion? – depends on how you look at it! haha)
so anyway, this is an old pic from June 2008.
went on a special press tour of a cruise liner
bought the dress last minute coz my brother dear (who is the press person) just told me about the event the night before! and since i was an eager beaver who wanted a free ride on a cruise liner, i happily obliged.
got it on 40% discount from my friend who works at a local designer boutique called Luca (Powerplant mall, Rockwell.)
despite the last minute shopping, good thing i got a dress that fit me well- that was not sleeveless coz i wasn’t into baring my arms at the time. plus it came in one of my fave colors! plum purple always seems to suit my olive-toned skin :)
not in photo – silver bangle on my right wrist.
i almost wore a silver headband with this look but i thought it made me look too blair waldorf-y (gossip girl) so i opted against it. some looks just don’t feel right no matter what you do
maybe, it’s also coz i’ve always thought of myself as more of a serena or vanessa when it comes to style. (read: boho slash urban)
would’ve loved to have paired this with maybe silver headstrings…if i only had more time.
_DARN, the dress gets folds when u’re seated (coz of the fabric- and it’s a lil loose on the waist) but i swear it looks good standing up.
i tend to get stuff one size bigger-im a size 4 all over but tend to get 6 for my tops to accommodate meh chest area- yes the perpetual dilemma of girls with boobies!
BUT i ain’t complaining. oh well, just gotta appreciate the curves God has given me. i ain’t got not no booty so might as well play up what i’ve got. :P_
sorry for being so chatty – tis my first post! forgive me, alright? :)
plus, this look is fairly safe for my taste, will post more daring stuff soon. :)
