Outfit://Shirt - Romwe, c/o catsuit-latex//Skirt and Boots - Local Store//Bag - Nessa//

Note to self, and for the nth time must surely remember: some clothes are better fitted for models in pictures. It took a while for the message to finally sink in to my brain, but seeing as this is not the first time I acquired an item that I thought would look just as good on me as the model, and alas, again didn't, it's time to learn the lesson. Or course I'm talking about this seemingly perfect cut-out shirt from Romwe, which, after laying hands on, wasn't so perfect after all. Don't get me wrong, I love it just as much as I thought I would. But the way it hugged my body and revealed parts in all the wrong places (i.e. the chest area), it just didn't work out. I'm lucky enough to have been able to take decent shots to show my outfit of the day, despite having to pull my shirt up occasionally while walking uncomfortably. But, until I figure out how to wear  it without worrying about the possibility of a wardrobe malfunction, it's safe to say this shirt will be tucked away for the rest of the season, waiting for the right moment to be worn again.

Anyway, outfit aside. I have nothing better to say about my personal life as of late... and neither of work because in fact if I did, it would all be about something worse. There's no point to it and really, this blog should be more about happy and positive thoughts so... I'll spare you the details and skip the drama for now. Have a great week!

  1. Aw, I like this shirt on you! It's an edgy version of the classic white button down. Maybe pair it with something more structured on bottom like jeans?

  2. That's really too bad it doesn't fit right! I just experienced the same problem with a skirt I got from Romwe, and I'm struggling to put together a look with it. You did an amazing job with this cutout top though, if you hadn't said anything I never would've guessed it was a difficult piece! Love your cut out boots so much <3

  9. booo for work troubles and shirt malfunctions! i have a few dresses like that too- like when i sit it turns *very* awkwardly into a shirt. Eek. Though I'd never guess that shirt didn't fit right- it looks really cute here. And LOVE your shoes. Amazing.
