This isn’t really a typical outfit to wear to the zoo but I had cantoring duties at church right after this so as usual I opted for something that I could wear in both occasions—that wasn’t easy to come up with. My church outfits come nowhere close to zoo outfits, I’d prefer to be casual and comfortable at the zoo (like shorts perhaps) but then I had to look for something decent and presentable enough to be standing in front of the entire church congregation and this what I ended up with. The bustier top was one of my new purchases (on sale for $6.99) from First Colony Mall when I was on a mission to hoard crop tops and bralets for Spring and Summer, perfect for Houston heat. The skirt, an unconscious pick, was a thrift find from the Goodwill store close to my house. The gold paint splatter or spots if you may call it remind me of a glam version of animal prints. Gold is pretty much played up in the rest of my outfit as seen in my wedges and accessories and I pushed it further to other colors within it’s family… I ended up with the golden mustard purse from Louis Vuitton and a pastel yellow belt from my grandmother before she passed away. The red fedora (is it even a fedora?) with the feather, one of my proud finds close to $2.00 during a liquidation sale at Icing, was something I added to break away from the monotony of colors.
