I was supposed to attend my cousin’s wedding last Sunday wearing this ensemble. Since it was an impromptu event, I didn’t really get to prepare and have a dress made in time. Thankfully, Mango’s current selection allowed me to build an outfit that projected the needed formality that a wedding event calls for.

Truth be told, I didn’t make it to the event. For one thing, I was just there to represent my parents so my presence wasn’t really all that necessary, next, I wasn’t really close to said cousin, and finally, I wasn’t in the mood. I didn’t want to go to a formal event pretending to rub shoulders and smile at my Chinese family members who would most likely accost me with invasive questions pertaining to my life in general.

I’m also pretty much bitter (I’m going through something, as mentioned in my previous blog post) so I don’t want to be festive at a wedding. You know that new Maroon 5 song: “Pay Phone?” There was a line that went: “All this fairytales are full of shit, one more fucking love song, I’ll be sick”–well, that was pretty much my mindset for the past few weeks so I didn’t want to be dick-ish and rain on anyone’s parade.

Or honestly, there’s also the fact that I was feeling really lazy that day and my other cousins didn’t really want to accompany me so we all just decided to stay in and watch a DVD.

But there’s just something ethereal with this top that I just can’t quite put my finger to.I love the chiffon texture that was made to resemble rosettes. It’s very dainty and pretty, definitely not something I expected from a retail brand like Mango.

I decided to embellish my outfit with silver hardware and silver details. I’m a fan of both gold and silver metals, I guess it all depends on how you want your look to come off as. Personally, I prefer gold over silver but there are just times when silver tones would stand out and make an elegant outfit noticeable.

Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t wear such a bold lip color as I feel like it would make my facial features too harsh but I think it’s pretty much appropriate for this outfit. I love how the red makes my teeth look whiter.

I love this pretty wrist jewelry. I wanted a more elaborate one from Topshop that I got for my friend JL, but they no longer had stocks for it. While shopping at Forever 21 recently, I found this for a fraction of the price!

When my household help got me this pair, she asked what the material was made out of. I saw it was real snake skin leather. She giggled, thinking I was probably joking. Anyway, this is one of the sexiest pair of feet candy that I own and I say “one of the” because nothing beats the YSL tributes.

Unfortunately however, given its towering height and my low pain tolerance, I don’t use it as often hence it’s in tip-top condition despite it being a year old.

So I’ll be posting more frequently now. I just decided to veer away for at least a week so people can read my post as to why I was on hiatus.

Right now, I’m still not at my very best but I’m just dedicating my spare time to blogging, work, friends, and a few other ventures. Truth be told, I’m still healing or well, attempting to heal. I know for a fact that the process isn’t instant and that it really doesn’t get better as each day passes? But you sort of gain a tolerance to it and eventually, maybe you forget. Now, I’m able to smile again and have fun with my clothes.

I’ll be okay soon and as always, I’d like to thank everyone for being with me as it happens.

    i didn’t really realize how ‘down in the dumps’ you actually were until i saw this entry! to the point that you were only recently starting to have fun again with your clothes!? goodness, it must have really been serious.

    i’m glad you didn’t go for suicide or anything. and that you’re bouncing back pretty good. don’t forget about the good things in life! XD

    and this is a very pretty outfit to wear for a wedding. too bad no one wanted to accompany you! i know i’d also feel awkward about going alone to something like that. :P at least you spent the time with people you know better instead. XD
