What I Wore That Day: Stripes and Strifes

December 19, 2014

For quite sometime, my closet only knew one color – black. The color wheel might even send dispute to clarify that black is not even a color. 

You might have seen in my previous posts how I played with outfits and colors, but most often black dominates my closet – and I always look for black dresses and tops, and skirts whenever I shop online. 
This fun, stripped dress from SheInside is a deviation from the usual theme though. What makes me love this dress? Click Read More.. 

I love its simple stripped design and off-shoulder detail that makes it perfect for night outs. 
The stripes make me look less thin (not that I am ultra-thin – I have actually gained a lot of weight) but it horizontally balances my height.
 To make it a little more casual, I paired it with flats and simple accessories 
– black watch, black duffel bag and name necklace.
You can say, I love simple dresses that both look casual and dressy. 
Next time, I am planning to wear this with heels or boots – and with the zipper in front unzipped!
