Topaz Fashion: What I wore this week

Very varied. That's the theme for this week's Topaz Fashion episode! I'll show you what I wear on different occasions. 

Style: Super casual.

I'm wearing a batwing-sleeve shirt from Ojay, Guess skinny jeans, Lacoste leather ballet flats and a Frances Sales satchel. I still like calling it that—the Frances Sales satchel. Anyway, this is brainless dressing, just jeans and a top. But I got a really large shirt to go with really skinny jeans because I like opposites that way.

Oh, and the secret to not look fat in a big top? Make sure it has a shape. Whether it's a cinched waist or the hem is tapered to hug your hips. Also, get a top with a plunging neckline. The deep V cuts you in half so you don't look so wide.

Style: Professional.

I'm wearing a Mango dress, Anthology flats and carrying a Kate Spade tote. Vince calls this my Jedi dress. It's the sleeves. Anyway, I love this dress because...
a) It looks like a blouse and a skirt but it's actually one dress!
b) It has pockets!
c) It looks so crisp and business-like but it's so comfortable to wear.

I was supposed to wear a pearl choker and pearl drop earrings with this, by the way, but I rushed out of the house completely forgetting to accessorize!

Style: Glam event.

I'm wearing a K & Company dress, Sapato Manila heels and a Gucci shopper. I was supposed to use my Fino structured bag but I came from work (that Gucci is stuffed with magazines!) so I had to use a big bag. Oh, and again, I forgot to accessorize. I'm not even wearing earrings! Ladies, never leave home without earrings. They decorate your face.

Anyway, style tip: Dresses are best complemented with a structured purse or a small clutch. Think Victoria Beckham and Duchess of Cambridge.

I knooooow. This Topaz Fashion edition is a Fashion Fail. No accessories. Wrong bags. Awful! Haha. I'll make up for it next week! Happy weekend!

  1. I can totally relate with the bags and accessories amnesia — I'm like that. I hardly look "all together" because I often forget to use the right accessories, or even put on makeup.

    1. I usually never forget jewelry. I love jewelry! I always forget makeup. I hate makeup!

  2. I think this is the first photo I saw of you in jeans! But the plunging neckline is... WOW. Buti Vince let you out the door. ;) Hahaha!

    I love the Mango dress! Akala ko rin blouse and skirt! So cute! :)

    1. Whaaaat?! Look through my blog—if I'm not pregnant, I'm in jeans! I swear by Levi's Lady Style jeans =)

      As for Vince... He's seen me walk out the door in mini skirts, mini dresses, hooker heels, sheer tops, sleeveless, backless, strapless and darn near frontless things! He doesn't always approve but he supports my right to wear what I want =D

    2. That's so odd. I've been following your blog for a few years, and this is the first photo of you in jeans that I noticed. Ang labo ko. :P

      Oh, by him letting you out the door, I meant wanting to get you back into bed. Hahaha!

  3. I hardly ever wear earrings. I think it drives my mother nuts. Back in college, my husband (then-boyfriend) would wear them more often than I did, and would wear more earrings than I did (he had more than one piercing on one ear).


Thanks for dropping by my blog! It really means a lot that you spare the time to read... and comment!
