Neon + Neutral

I consider my closet to be well-stocked when I had two fashion challenges in a row which at first I wasn’t sure if I could do, but then I realized I do have the necessary items after all. The first is the Everybody Everywear Lace challenge, and the second is the Bloggers Do It Better Neon + Neutral challenge.

At first I was just as stumped by this as I was by the Lace challenge. I don’t have any neon-colored thing in my closet – the closest thing is my fuchsia belt, which is too dark to be counted as neon. But then I remembered my hot pink suspenders (thank you Debbi for making me buy them!)

So I approached this challenge pretty much in the same way as I did the Lace challenge – I don’t wear a lot of it, so I’m just going to accent with it. And yeah, strictly speaking, my striped tunic isn’t “neutral”, but the stripes are small enough that it still works.

P/S: My boss said he liked my suspenders 😀

Burning The Sun With Just A Wave Of Your Hand

Yeah, I used the lyric from Athlete’s “Superman Touch” again. I just really like the song, OK?

Note to self: please don’t wait until 3 in the afternoon to take outfit photos. The lighting is horrible. Now that it’s getting dark later and later, I was hoping I could take my photos at sunset. But it’s not going to happen for some time, because either I have to leave earlier than that (on days that I have night classes), or it’s already dark by the time I get back from my internship.

Anyway, I’m going to have some free time on my hand soon: the class is coming to an end, and so is my internship, so I can take my photos whenever I want. I’m going to be unemployed, but at least I’ll have nice outfit photos! (Yay?) (not that I’m employed now, I’m not getting paid, but at least I have a job to do, you know?) And where I might wear those outfits to, I don’t know… Man, it’s going to be get real depressing round here.

I didn’t even talk about the outfit, did I? I’ve worn this dress/tunic with these pants before, but I don’t care because honestly, I couldn’t be bothered to come up with a new pairing today. Besides, it’s so annoying dressing for days when I have to be out late: it’s hot now, but I know it’s going to get cold later at night. Damn you, LA climate!
