Today's Outfit: Feathery

  • Forever 21 feather necklace (better view here)
  • American Apparel two-toned mini dress (worn as a top)
  • Urban Outfitters skirt
  • Bloch ballroom dance shoes

First we had black and white with a touch of red. Then we had lots of primary colours worn together with a touch of metallic. Now here's another two tricks to add to your arsenal of holiday dressing strategies: 1) wear two pieces in the same colour (in this case, black) for a one-piece dress effect, and 2) put on some feathers.

This was my first time wearing the feather necklace even though I bought it over a year ago. A fear of crushing the feathers held me back, but then the lackadaisical side of me who really wanted to wear it to a special pink and black salsa gala shrugged my shoulders and went "Meh, at least it isn't expensive." So I wore it. And none of the feathers got crushed. No, not even during the multiple spins.

I think I have one more fancy schmancy party outfit to show you before I revert back to the usual. Hope you've enjoyed seeing these ensembles as much as I enjoyed, er, wearing them. Have a good weekend!

  6. That necklace is a knockout piece. So fabulous! And easy to cover up under a coat or scarf if a sudden Vancouver downpour comes along ;)

  7. LOVE it!! I've been keeping my eye out actually for a small feathery handbag or clutch. Think it's completely under used right now for the holiday look and i love that you've gone for it here. It's so elegant and unexpected.
