Those who know me know that when it comes to clothing, I love neutral colors. Bright pink is probably a color I’d never wear. A few months ago I fished this pink satin long blazer out of Topshop’s Boutique section, thought I’d try something new. Ever since then I’ve only been wearing it in-between layers. The idea of wearing something so flashy straight up just never seemed appealing to me. Until this past Vday, my girlfriends and I decided to have a night out together wearing something pink .
So this entire look though, there’s so much story going on. I finally decided to wear the yellow circle lenses I got from Japan for the first time. The entire process was pure torture. It took me two hours to put them on since I’m not used to wearing contacts. After all kinds of crying, Kenny force opening my eyelids, and watching a ton of instructional videos, I finally got them to stay on my eye balls. I then spent the next 20 minutes b*tching about society's unrealistic expectations for female appearance. LOL, it was a painful experience that rendered into more useless thinking.
For the outfit, I wanted to wear my black dress pants but didn’t have a cute top to match with it. So being a resourceful Asian woman, I put on a lace bodycon dress and tugged the skirt part into my pants. The pictures turned out decent but if you’d been there in person you would’ve seen this giant bulge of random layer underneath my pants. This was something that I’d probably never do again.
To finish off, I threw on a pair of black heels and my pink satin blazer, felt more sparkly than ever. For a lazy fashionista like me, that was indeed a lot of work. But while I usually prefer “effortless styles”, I do enjoy dolling up once in a while. Not wearing bright pink because it’s “not my color”, is just a close-minded thing to say. I’ve finally learnt to experiment and embrace more diverse styles.
Sigh~ I guess R.I.P. to my wallet.
