It was one of those lazy late afternoons when I decided to jump out of my bed and leave the house. I thought of wearing this very simple sleeveless jersey dress in grayish-purple, which I haven’t worn in ages! It’s from the very first collection of K.A.T. and I suddenly saw it peeping out of my closet. Haha! 😀 It’s a plain short dress that others might not even pay attention to when hanged in a rack with other chic dresses. But hey, plain and simple pieces can also be chic when styled. 😉 Check it out below. 🙂
When I slipped on the dress, I suddenly realized how much I missed wearing it. I’d say, it can be a grecian-inspired dress because of the folds created when clinched with a belt. The soft fabric allows the dress to look flowy. Jersey is very light and comfortable to wear. It’s as if I’m not wearing anything at all- definitely perfect for a lazy sunny afternoon! 😀
Wearing the dress as is would definitely look sloppy. It actually comes with a belt, same fabric and color of the dress, but I thought of using a thin braided belt to add some color to the outfit. And since I liked the grayish-purple and brown combo, I thought of being matchy-matchy. 🙂 I went for my H&M brown lace up booties and shoulder bag, brown leather studded bracelet and brown earrings. A touch of gold always looks nice with browns as well, so I wore a gold cuff and necklace. 🙂
I also revived my brown blazer, which I bought in Seoul, Korea back in November 2006. I felt ecstatic to see this blazer once again inside my closet. I thought I’ve lost it! I felt so bad since I haven’t seen anything like it here in Manila. It’s made of some unique fabric- leathery and velvety. Sorry, I couldn’t quite describe it because of its uniqueness. LOL! 😀 Apparently, it was just hidden in the depths of my closet. LOL! 😀 I really should clean up all my cabinets one of these days. They’re all chaos! “Chaos” might even be an understatement! Ugh!
Here are more photos sans the blazer.
Warning! Picture overload! LOL! I was in the mood to take photos that afternoon because the sun was about to set! 😀 I just love the lighting! 😀 I love drama. I’m an ultimate drama queen, I guess. LOL! 😀
It was a lazy day to dress up, but I hope this simple grayish-purple dress worked well with the browns and the golds. 😀
