For February's sake, I TRIED to wear red. I'm not a big fan of this color but hey, I've changed my mind after seeing it work well for me.... I suppose. You might be wondering why I had this red dress in the first place. To break whatever speculation you're thinking, I have to reveal that it was a gift from my sissy. Though she gave it to me about a month ago, I've never used it or maybe I never had the chance to. Oops, not that I did not like it but because of the lame reason that it was RED. As I opened my closet a while ago, there it was, lying on the darkest corner waiting for somebody to notice and bother to pick it up. And so I did and the rest of the story is seen in the pictures below. HAHA! Surprisingly, I liked the result! And because of that,I'm planning to throw in some red pieces to my wardrobe. Not a bad change for the month of February, right?
Too early for a candid shot. IKR! haha Just so you know, I was just checking my nails here and realized I haven't trimmed it yet. MAJOR OOPS!
Enough of the nail checking, time to pose for the camera. *click
Red is a happy color. :) Just try to set aside those thoughts about blood okay? Just for now... hihi
And the camera keeps on clicking...
On to the details of my look. I used a pastel colored floral belt to break the monotony of the plain red dress. And if this piece of advice ever helps, dressing up for whatever occasion means dolling up from head to toe. Our fingers deserve to be adorned by cute rings which match the style you imbibe. All of the rings I used speak of femininity and anything flimsy you can think of--- ribbons, hearts, cherries you name it.
I paired it up with gold peep-toe pumps to finish the look seamlessly.
Gold has always been a classic.
I've noticed that detachable collars slowly climb its way up to the "must-have" list of every preppy girl. And guess what? This ingenious accessory made its way to my closet few weeks ago. Talk about trying out new things to put up this look.*wink
ANOTHER new thing I've tried was curling my hair! Yaaaay! Though I've done it a few times before but it's not everyday that your hair gets curled up, right?

Shouldn't this be a NEW year post? haha Pretty much this has been the look that I've tried on new things the most.
It is fun to try out something new once in a while,don't you agree?
Here I go again with a smirk on my face.
You'd better know that I'm not a VERY SERIOUS person! hahaha So I think the second photo's better than the other one... looks even friendlier! haha
Bow earrings all the more add detail to one's whole look.
This is just a portfolio of the pics we took that afternoon.
Before I thought this color was overpowering for me.
My folks may have rarely or never seen me wearing anything red.
You now know the reason why.
