MY STYLE: Tetris (Black and White)

Being glamorous is about strength and confidence. It’s black and white—dramatic! You have to be strong—Catherine Zeta-Jones

My love for big, full, flare, midi or maxi skirts is growing at a speed that I seemingly cannot control. Thanks to my amazing seamstress who never grows tired of making these skirts for me, this high-low black and white maxi skirt is newest piece in my collection.
A few posts ago, I mentioned that I received invites to a few Christmas functions and I found that rather odd because rarely am I invited anywhere....maybe because I'm such a home body, but one of my department's partners extended an invitation to their annual Christmas party and this is what I wore.  I named the post Tetris because that's what the pattern reminds me of. You know that game right? On long haul flights, I love playing Tetris on my iPad.

Now, let's focus a little on the opening quote, especially the first line "Being glamorous is about strength and confidence" because it truly is. You could have the most amazing outfit, a face that's beat to the heavenlies, and a hairstyle that only a true master stylist could create, but if you're not bold, strong and confident, that insecurity will shout a whole lot louder than your banging outfit. In this life, you HAVE to be strong to survive. There are no two ways about it.

2015 Holiday Lookbook- Style 2

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas- Calvin Coolidge

Hi loves, apologies for the absence of posts last week but what a week it was. Bridal shower, work, staff lunches, Christmas parties etc.....and, it's Monday AGAIN *sigh*.

This second look from my holiday lookbook is more for the casual to not-so-casual Christmas dinner or other event, it's not overly dressy neither is it completely dressed down. I've been doing some closet scouring lately and realised that I hadn't yet worn this jumpsuit which I purchased well over 6 months ago. Actually, I'd venture to say that I purchased it at least a year ago but never wore it or even remembered that I bought it. I promise that I'll do better in the new year. I have wayyyyyyy too much clothes. 
What I love most about this jumpsuit is the intricate lace detail over the light beige lining. The lining adds such depth and dimension, almost creating the illusion of a 3d look. The downside to wearing a jumpsuit is when it's time for a bio break. Uh! Just the thought of having to undo the outfit totally discourages me from taking that break.

On another note, Christmas is drawing nearer and nearer by the second. What are your plans?
