joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I’ve been listening to a lot of Queen lately and this song, Killer Queen provided inspiration for my outfit! It goes day to night with a belt, a change of bah and shoes. The lyrics go…

She keeps Moet et Chandon
In a pretty cabinet
‘Let them eat cake’ she says
Just like Marie Antoinette

A built-in remedy
For Khrushchev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can’t decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She’s a Killer Queen
Gunpowder, Gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same dress
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness

Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
If you’re that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris
for cars she couldn’t care less
Fastidious and precise

Drop of a hat she’s as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild
She’s out to get you

Recommended at the price
Insatiable in appetite
Wanna try?
You wanna try.

Anyway, I wanted to be very colorful but subtle at the same time thus the minimal colorful accessory which is my colorful candy-inspired statement necklace. I no longer added a belt since I wanted the skirt/top combination to look like a one-piece dropwaist. This black balenciaga bag is actually one of my favorite weekend bags but I like to use it as well on errand/ shopping day. I just keep on stacking purchases inside. I bought it last January and it’s very functional.

Simpler than normal outfits but it was a simple day! With the need for a burst of color.

ERRATUM: Got my Skirt from Granville in Hongkong with my cousin Kix. Thanks for reminding T! The boxy type bag is actually a recycled Cigar box from my sister in one of her trips to Mexico. It has one face with sequined and beaded Martini glasses and cloth and the other face with the original cigar label. The interior is coated with animal print inside! Such an Ooomph outfit!
