Purple Haze

Hi, all!

This is a backdated post because I actually forgot to blog about it, but since I dressed up and I shouldn't waste any blogging opportunities, HERE WE ARE WTF.

Anyway, I got to spend almost a full day in the city at the end of May (!!!); we were having dinner in a fancy place so I decided to look nice and not embarrass the hubby even though I was extremely tempted to wear t-shirt and jeans.

"OH, HAI."
*awkward waves*
*crickets chirp*

I haven't worn that dress in awhile, and seeing this photo reminded me why I love it to bits!
It was my special dress back then (God, I feel old) because it is completely made of silk, has the most gorgeous draping, and cleverly-mixed with subtle prints; definitely not something I'd want to ruin by wearing often.
This dress happens to be a bitch to iron, so there's that too, HAHAHA.
*more crickets chirp*

Here's a close-up on my accessories for the day (and my not-so-matchy matte lilac nail polish!):

Yes, that ring is humongous and it is as heavy as it looks, so I figured that one jewelry was enough for me that day.
Also, if you have been following my Instagram, you'd know that vintage bag was a new acquisition (in the month of May WTF)!
The colour was PERFECT; I'm obsessed with teeny tiny bags so this was a no-brainer purchase.
The gusset at the side is sticking out because my phone can barely fit and I had to somewhat force it in...
*sweat drops*
I can assure everyone that no baby bags were harmed (read: stretched to death) because I decided to manually hold onto my phone in the end, HA HA HA.

Dress: Alexander McQueen
Sandals: Chloé
Vintage bag: Gianni Versace
Vintage ring: Panetta

STYLE TIP: If you have been following my blog for awhile, you'd realize I have been wearing the same pair of shoes with a lot of my outfits. I highly-recommend getting a great pair of block-heeled sandals in neutral tones especially for travels when packing space is an issue; a pair like that could take you everywhere from day to night, from casual to dressy!

This is possibly the closest monotone look I've ever done; I love mixing and matching my colours/prints too much to stick to the theme!
You can't really see it in the photographs, but the buttons on my dress are silver-toned and I was secretly cringe-dying on the inside because my other accessories are gold-toned, and I am not one to mix my metals!

Here is a photo of the amethyst ring I had on; it is definitely the largest ring in my collection!:
