The Reluctant Stylista

I may not have always loved fashion, but I think I’ve always held a certain fascination for costumes.  This OOTD isn’t actually anything that I’ve worn outside the studio, but it was one of those moments when we just felt like playing dress up.  (With my friends as stylists and dressers, and me, their willing human doll and forever guinea pig).

 

Asian Sartorial Inspirations and Playing Dress Up

 

We used the photo above to advertise our booth (and wares) at Bloggers United in our social media networks, so you might have seen this some time ago.  I was wearing all of these gold accessories we eventually sold out during the bazaar.

I played around with some of the eyeshadow palettes that Nio had at his shop.  I wanted a plum or dark purple lipstick to go with this long vest made by John (on me it’s a dress), but since my kikay kit is quite limited, I dabbled with purple eyeshadow instead and colored my lips with them.  Hihi.

Then Nio thought we should tie my hair up in a braid to complete a sort of Asian female warrior look.  I even had two cuffs, one on each wrist, but then I ultimately decided to take one of them off because the gold was too overpowering already haha.

I love the gold buttons on this one

So yeah, this is pretty much what happens when Nio, John and I are all bored together.  We always have clothes to play with and a camera to document our goofing around, and this is the result!

Knowing myself, I probably won’t mind going out with this outfit at all.  I’d probably just ditch any two of the accessories to “tame” the look down.
