A TWIST ON FORMAL

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Semi-formal evening wear doesn't always need to consist of heavily embellished chiffon pieces or tight body con dresses.

Cocktail dresses and high heels tend to suffocate me so when the need arises, I try to be more creative and find alternative ways to adhere to the dress code.

This is one example.

ZARA CHAIN BOOTS STREET STYLE

It may not be for everybody but for me, this is the most comfortable way I can think of marrying semi-formal wear and street style.

Instead of opting for an LBD, I matched a semi-cropped top with a midi skirt to create an interesting silhouette.

I also like the unexpected touch of heavily chained boots instead of the usual pumps.

This is what I wore to the Paco Rabanne Eau De Gold "fragrance tasting" and the intimate Savoy Watch event that I have yet to blog about but I'm wearing one of my favorite watches from their new collection in the photo below, a rose gold face with an interchangeable rubber strap and accents.

It's also one of the looks they included in my Woman At Work feature found in the pages of last week's Style Weekend magazine.  (thank you, thank you Manila Bulletin for the lovely write-up ☺ )

So there you go, hope you liked this ootd ☺.

Keeping it pretty short for now since I've been feeling a bit under the weather since we got back from Baguio yesterday. We visited Baguio Craft Brewery and it was extremely cold that night. I think that's what got to me plus the sudden change of weather in Manila's heat.

Lastly, in case you haven't joined yet, giving away tickets to Close Up Forever Summer and National Bookstore GC's + Progress Pre-School GOLD Milk! ☺

I love how black never goes wrong with most style. I like to try this look but I don't think it'll work for me though. Hehe BTW wow, congrats on the feature! :)

I've tried this before and found the taste to be alright. No sting or alcohol. :)

I like dressing up for events. It gives me a chance to wear dresses and bring out my pumps and heels stuck in the rack for the longest time. Hehe. I can't pull off your look but it definitely looks good on you :) Love your bag too :)

Ayi Dela Cruz said...

She's so pretty :) I use Oracare too. Not really fan of the taste though. Hehe
