Among the most powerful contrasting color combos is black & white. I admire how they look strong, especially when featured on structured clothes with intricate cuts and fine designs such as this dress I’m wearing. This is a totally no-fuss outfit- the dress speaks for itself, so I knew dazzling jewelries have to take the backseat for a while. To scare away the boring feel, I opted wearing a burst of colors for my heels. I’d totally pass as a movie villain or a threatening boss perchance! I wore this on Christmas Day because I had to pass on wearing jolly colors since this is our first Christmas without our grandparents. Before the year ended, I realized I wore black & white on all parties I attended, maybe because I’ve practiced adapting to it, having transitioned from my girly girl style (circa 2011- early 2013) to a classier and more mature style (latter 2013 down to this writing).

When I’m dressed up I like this, I feel more confident, empowered and respected, which are probably what I need at this age as I’m in the run of establishing myself. Gone were the days when people mistake me for a 16 year-old girl tagging along my mom’s parties. I’d like to be known as a successful career woman of my own field someday and I believe that changing how people see you adheres greatly on how you dress and present yourself. Dressing up in a fine, sophisticated style makes you look more reliable, while being clad up in youthful shades like pastels or neons can make your age deceive people. Can relate?

I’m hoping this short entry helps you on how to dress up today!

What I wore: Lace dress from Beautology , necklace from bazaar, heels from Folded and Hung, sling bag from Portman.
