Been wanting to shoot an OOTD piece for ages, but I’m so reluctant to appear in it. Plus, I’m dead on the equipment side: no one to shoot me and no decent mobile cam. DSLR’s not an option because I look horrible in high-res, and besides, who’s going to work that cam for me? But hey…girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do, and voila, I shot OOTDs and more using a DSLR on timer with the help of a laundry basket and a jewelry box!
I haven’t been out lately, so my pretty clothes haven’t seen the light of day for quite some time, which is sad, and also, all the more reason to put them on display. Had a lot of fun dressing up for the day, so I hope you pick up some good stuff from my “comeback” entry (I AM SO SORRY FOR BEING MIA FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH) 😀 Let the OOTDs finally take the spotlight!
My grandma from Canada got me this subtly sexy striped cotton wrap-around dress. Though I’ve never worn it out yet, I know I will because it’s flattering and comfortable AF. Fabric’s really soft, and the fit’s a break from my usual go-to pampasexy look (the balot na balot and hapit one).
Though the neckline’s dangerously low and not compliant with my dad’s dress code, I find that the right underwear is an easy fix. Opt for a bra with lace cover up, or maybe a bandeau.
The yellow number is easily one of my favorite closet staples because ang lakas maka-Kris Aquino. Got it from a tiangge in Farmer’s Cubao and I’ve been wearing it when I’m lazy to pick out clothes. It’s a good shade of yellow: not too bright and perfect for yellow-undertoned-skinned Chinese peeps like moi. Because it’s fit and flare, it flatters pretty much all body shapes so yes. Perfect.
I don’t wear shorts, but this pair’s an exception. Our yaya got me this from the market for 50 pesos, and I love it! Sulit, grabe. This pair fits just right because I can still breathe in it and my thighs don’t suffer from painful chub rubs in it, even after hours of walking. Yay.
Because of this pair, I found that the right fit can complement your thicc-ness. If you’re pear or hourglass shaped, choose high-waist ones that are loose on the thigh areas.
Because shorts generally go well with anything, you can go ahead and wear whatever you like. For me though, I go with bright, covered up tops to balance off the skin shown. Hehe.
Ways for Two-way
Two-way blouses are on-trend, and for good reason: they’re easy-breezy and versatile. They’re even better in white because white looks great on anyone. Wear it as a shift blouse for casual getaways, and go off-shoulder for dressier occasions. Tuck it in mom jeans or any high-waist pants for the sweet yet posh look.
This set of OOTDs is a combination of old and mostly new closet staples. Hopefully I’d get around to wear them out more often. Anyway, this shoot turned out quite well, didn’t it? Then, this is another thing that I’d like to do more often. 🙂
This is one of my fave entries so far, because it’s a result of trying something new. These days have been difficult for trying new things because I get anxious about the minute details. But hey, this came out great 😀 Blogging about these things is something I’d want to do more of. But trying…now that’s something I’d want to do even more of. 🙂
And…wrapping it up with this in the meantime. Catch the second part soon! 😀 If not, please bug me. Hehe. ❤
