Sunday’s Best

November 11, 2012

Drafting this post while still wearing the outfit is rather refreshing given my many pending entries in my never-ending backlog list (which reminds me, I think a self-chat re: prioritizing is in order.)

It’s been a while since I dressed up for church. The reasons for that mainly being 1) always rushing in the morning resulting to grabbing whatever’s in sight – hence a mismatched outfit about once a week; 2) running out of nice things to wear by Sunday thanks to, well, the previous 6 days I try to dress up; and 3) dress codes.

Getting tired of the past week’s shirts and denims, I got inspired to take into heart ‘Sunday’s best’ and look like a lady, for once – momentarily pushing my sandos and other laid-back gear to the back of my closet. The dress is huge, but I kind of like it that way. Not that I had that much of a choice – it’s a one-of-a-kind purchase (read vintage). Topped the look off with hair clipped to the side and my favorite weapon of choice – red lipstick (it’s MAC’s Ruby Woo, if you were wondering.)

I succeeded, right? No? Boo. I even threw on this chunky Twinkies necklace for good measure.
