Oh, Rouge & Ruche, how I’ve missed you so. Apologies for my short absence from this space. Over the past number of weeks, I’ve been weighed down by heavy work commitments which forced myself to pull away from Rouge & Ruche and focus on what’s necessary to survive in that rollercoaster of a month. I’m glad to see that some of you are still checking in every now and then, and I thank you for that. 🙂
A few weeks ago, I managed to shoot a quick outfit that I styled with this relatively new vintage button-down. My first instinct was to pair it with some black jeans, leather boots and a dark lip – a foolproof outfit combination – but it’s simply way too hot and humid for that kind of dressing. Instead, I threw on some loose slacks and some strappy sandals to keep myself cool in the terrible weather this time of the year. I believe that the trick to pulling off a head-to-toe baggy look is to roll up the sleeves a little. This instantly adds a slight girly vibe to the whole getup and makes it look more put together and less lazy. Of course, a dark lip helps as well – I’m wearing my trusty Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush!
P.S. Just a quick shoutout to my girl Aisha who’s co-organising the 2nd Chances Market! If you love looking for vintage and secondhand treasures as much as I do, that’s where you wanna be this coming Friday 😉 Check out 2CM’s Facebook page for more details!
