Our holiday break for the Lunar New Year wasn’t supposed to start until next week, but we just had a recent outbreak of COVID cases and everything is in lockdown mode again, so we got off a week early. Fingers crossed that the break won’t get extended into nearly 3 months like it did last time!
Anyway, that means that for the next month or so, I’ll be posting backlogged outfits. First up is this outfit I wore to our school’s end-of-semester party. This dress is quickly becoming my go-to “party dress”, because it can be easily accessorized. For this, I kept things simple with heels in a complementary color and this vintage brooch – it’s my favorite because it mimics the look of a corsage. I suspect it was handmade too, which makes it all the more special!
My sister convinced me to buy these heels at an end-of-summer sale. I tend to stay away from such conventionally feminine things, especially when it comes to shoes, and these are the most conventionally feminine shoes ever – the pink color, the heels, the Mary Jane straps. If I do wear heels, they’re usually more basic than that. But I agreed with my sister that I need to branch out a bit, and besides, these heels are low enough that they’re pretty comfortable to wear. I’m looking forward to cooler weather so I can pair them with some of my more masculine pieces like boyfriend jeans and blazers – because I’m all about keeping the balance between feminine and masculine in my style.
