LIFE IN STRIPES

Perfect striped shift dress
If life was just as perfect as a straight line, it would be such a blah. It is the circles, zigzags and curves that add to all the fun in our lives. Don't you think? So why not do that with your wardrobe? I must admit, i could write a book on my life. I just don't think anyone will buy a copy.

Once, i thought every outfit i bought had to be clingy and hugging on every bone under my skin to look chic and fab (The mind of a teenage girl). Even though it is often the way to go, because seriously, what woman doesn't want to flaunt her curves? But sometimes i just need some air, you know, something lose fitting but still flattering. Anyway, i decided on a shift dress this time around. Perfect candy stripes because i have a "healthy" addiction for stripes and colors just always do it for me. As always, i like to add a bit of a twist to a very simple look for fun and to make it sooo me.

Like you must have heard or read somewhere before:-

 "Imperfection Is Beauty. Madness Is Genius. It Is Better To Be  Absolutely Ridiculous Than To Be Absolutely Boring".

Touché?

Funny how you're wearing a socks with a pumps, cos i was thinking of making a post on it yesterday. I've been seeing it a lot lately and hoonestly sometimes i raised my eyebrows when i see it. Having said that, i think not all looks work well with this socks-heels-wearing trend. I must say yours works for me though - I love that the socks is plain and has no funny lace ribbons going on (reminds me of school days, lol!!). The dress is beautiful - you know am a sucker for stripes. You look amazing. Much love!

If life was perfect then it wouldn't be worth living. I love loose fitting dresses or any outfit for that matter, it helps me to breath but yes, you cannot wear loose fitting clothes all the time either, you want to show those curves as you said.

Your socks and shoes reminded of Chanel, I wish I could carry it off as beautifully as you did.
