WHAT I WORE -The Boyfriend Shirt

 

“I don’t believe in men’s wear or women’s wear. I just like what I like.”

– Janelle Monáe

Hey guys!

So in my next post, which was supposed to come before this but I had some issues with it so I’ll do it next, I covered a wedding and I went as media. So…choosing an outfit was a bit difficult.

I’m the kind of wedding guest that never shows up in traditional or casual, but usually in a knee-length fit and flare gown, and heels, or anything formal or dinner-like.

So I had to go casual and comfy just this one time.

Comfort was key for me in this outfit. Cos I was to be taking pictures and interviewing, so I was going to be up, about, and everywhere. So I went for this boyfriend shirt – any oversized shirt that looks like you either borrowed it from your daddy, brother, husband, boyfriend or basically any male figure in your life, and are a size too big for you.

I paired it with a black jeans which I folded up, and these chunky heels. I love these heels, I’m sure you’ve seen much of them on the blog. They are the closest thing to flats that I have. I feel every girl should get a pair of something like these. If you don’t want to wear flats, but at the same time, want to be comfortable, go for these. The low chunky heels is a +1 in comfort. The ankle straps hold well, so it’s easier to walk in. So since I was going to be doing a lot of walking, I went for them. I styled the shirt the infamous half-tuck way. 😉

A friend of mine took the pics and she isn’t a photographer, so please pardon the poor quality of some pics 🙂 .

I look tired and stressed out. Trust me, I was.

One of the golden chains on my shoes removed 🙁

Don’t worry. I took a pair of sneaks incase. And they came in handy.

Since I successfully convinced myself that face caps don’t look good on me, I don’t own one. I don’t do face caps, I do scarves, headwarmers and hats. But I had to take a face cap cos of the sun, and I thought it would be absurd for a photographer to be wearing shades while taking pictures.

I searched and I found this one I was given in secondary school during an ‘End Violence Against Women’ campaign. So I decided to wear it as my way of campaigning while I protect my very delicate eyes from the sun.

END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

So I wore my DIYed ID card. I was told I had to come with an ID card as the media, so as a DIYer that I am, or as I like to call it, a DIY agent, I did this card. I wrapped a strawboard with a blue page from a magazine, wrote ‘girleccentric’ on a plane paper, cut and pasted on the already wrapped card, as well as the address, and ‘MEDIA’ which I cut and pasted at the back.

I also designed the ‘cards’.

And then lectured my mom on the benefits of being a DIY agent – Do It Yourself.

So that’s a wrap everybody.

It was fun.. Now I’m back.

  12. Welcome dear. Thanks for stopping by. I get the intimidating part, but if you define who you are and what you want to portray and stick to it, all the “side intimidations” might come once in a while but as long as what you’re doing and who you are is defined, it won’t pull you down.
    Wishing you the best dear.

  13. Your posts are so refreshing to read… I really like your sense of style. Do follow back dear.
