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 🙂 .
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.
