Dominiquetiu 's thoughts:

If you’ve noticed, I’ve been experimental with my outfits as of late. I’ve been wanting to push the envelope in terms of my fashion choices; challenging my own principles when it comes to style and comfort, as well as adapting certain trends I never would have thought I’d ever pull off (I’m pretty obsessed with Street Wear, as I’ve incessantly mentioned).
So far, all I can say is I’ve ”nailed it” (or so they say in meme-speak). I don’t mean to sound crude or arrogant or bigheaded (I’m ironic, remember) but, I’m truly proud of how much I’ve grown as a person (especially in terms of Fashion). I’m the type of person who sees every endeavor in life as a healthy competition (with myself), perhaps that’s why I constantly push myself to raise the bar higher once I’ve achieved certain goals.

I’ve always thought of myself as a “safe” dresser–and I do make a lot of no-fail “safe” decisions (not just in Fashion). My close friends and family would say that the aforementioned quality is a product of my wisdom, but there are days when I think that I’m getting pretty boring and predictable. Specific to fashion, I know (deep in my heart) that my style aspires (and reflects) elegance and class but I don’t want to be contained merely in those two adjectives… I want a roster of positive synonyms to add to the accolades showered upon me. Who doesn’t right? It’s human nature!

As elated as I was when the Black and White trend came to fore, there was an irrational fear that I might look dated. Yes, dated is chic… always, but we’re in 2013, I want to give the trend a little something from the present. So I ditched my matchy-matchy principle in life (everyone knows I like to standardize certain colors and hardwares in my wardrobe), and just wing it. The result? A sliver of Red in my monochromatic outfit in the form of this year’s coveted ankle-strap shoes, and a show of skin with my stripped cropped turtleneck top on a regular Sundate with the boyfriend.
