Fashion Over Reason: LBD

Monday, May 10, 2010


A few weeks ago i finished university and our last hurray was the epic presentation of our final projects in front of quite a large audience ('round 300). I chose to wear black, of course, and here is my appearance's getup. I wore this dress a little differently than how it was meant to ... it's supposed to be a wrap dress with a sort of cowl neck button-down, which i didn't particularly like (actually, along with kitten heels and leggings as tights, cowl necks are probably one of the few things that i cannot stand in fashion). So instead of wrapping the panels around the front, i decided to envelop my body 'round the back in order to fasten everything in the front with a little bow, which allowed me to secure the cowl neck in the waist ribbon, thus exposing the cute buttons along the front. I know the quality is bad but you can kind of get the gist of it in the second photo. The material was a kind of a heavy weight satin - incredibly comfortable! Everything tied in with a red lip, of course.

Lovely! I like that you chose to wear the dress in your own personal way and that you were not wearing it how it was meant to be worn. This shows that you have your OWN STYLE!
Really love that ^^

first of all amazing choice of outfit for your grand presentation university exit ;) and second of all GREAT improv on the dress!

I too HATE leggings worn as tights, it just feels wrong! but i love them worn as pants-- yes i am one of those people. in fact i really need a new pair of leggings (all i have at AA ones and they are shit) and i really want the Wolford ones CM has added to their inventory but they are too sheer to wear as pants and i would never buy a pair of leggings i couldn't wear as pants lol! im ridiculous i know-- i wear them with shirts that don't hit the waistline but don't cover your bum, you know what i mean? lol.

and thirdly: THANK YOUUUUU i HATE cowlnecks! maybe when im older they'll grow on me, but if there's a neckline i hate it's that! i have a sequined cowl neck mango dress from ages ago, like 06, and the only reason i haven't ditched it is cause it's pretty amazing overall but everytime the cowl neck just stands out and erks me! lol!
