(Tassel dress/ OASAP, Felt hat/ OASAP, Slip-on sneakers/ Topshop, Cross-body bag/ Thrifted, Earrings/ Mango)
After a month long hiatus, I'm finally back with an outfit post. I've been preoccupied with work and life, so I took a break from blogging. I forgot how time-consuming it actually can be until I was preparing for this post, but nevertheless I enjoy what I do.
I selected this black tassel dress simply because I don't own anything with fringe/ tassel detailing and I like how it reminded me of the 20's flapper style. To my surprise, its actually a two-piece with a tassel overlay and black slip. I didn't really like how it was separates at first but the slip has come in handy to wear under my other sheer garments. I styled this dress with a wide-brim felt hat and wore my trusty sneakers for a casual vibe. Accessorized with silver and gold jewelry to contrast against the all black ensemble. I don't usually wear earrings apart from studs because I think I look weird with drop earrings. And once my sister said I looked like a hooker when I wore hoops so I stopped wearing earrings after that tragic comment hahaha. But I think I'm gravitating towards earrings again. I bought this pair on impulse one day because I was really intrigued by their design. My mum called me an Ah Lian when I wore these, I guess because it looks like I have a gauge piercing (#offended but I still love you mummy), so I was second guessing my purchase. But I'll continue to wear them because I find them super edgy and they reminded me of like dinosaur teeth.
Hope you have a blessed weekend!
