Those of you who trail me on instagram might have already taken a glimpse of this quite-ladylike gettup I wore the day before yesterday, and here is the full photo set - the glorious result of selfie shamelessness. Apparently taking photos of one's self (and I don't mean arms stretched out front, smartphone in hand) out in the open is addicting. Never mind the prying eyes of passers-by and the awkward stares from workers at the nearby construction site - surely they have never seen someone strike idiotic poses in front of a camera attached to a tripod. At least I'm not being scandalous so go ahead and watch; I'm happy to bring amusement.
On this particular afternoon, it was all but sunny, and as much as I hate to admit, Macau is indeed having a grey relapse, as Chezka puts it. But there is no way I'm going down that rut again. Instead of sulking, I pretended I was headed somewhere significant and dressed the part.
For this I can always count on a well-fitted blazer and a flouncy skirt to give me that city girl-esque chicness without overdoing. As it so happens, these I'm wearing from my wardrobe are the current quintessential pieces of their kind. Add a pair of lace-up peep toe sandal-boots and what can't be considered a more fail-proof outfit to conquer dullness than that?
I'll leave you to decide while I prep for another selfie-session.
