I like combining pieces that might not seem the same "theme," e.g. sweet sheer ruffles, ferocious spots, ladylike satin sandals, and a chunky, studded bag.
I borrowed this dress from my good friend Annick -- it's perfect for Philippine weather as it's sheer and can be worn by itself or with a cover-up, which can change the whole look entirely. It was so warm that I chose this dress and brought an animal-print shawl for indoor air conditioning.
A mixed salad of ruffles, spots, and hardware.
Gamely posing for my mom, who took these photos.
Happy week! :)
