Personal Outfit 58 (Dinner Date & Test Driving New Shoes)

Went out on the dinner date with the Bf the day before, and I also took the opportunity to have a test run on a pair of boots I had gotten for my Gintama Kagura cosplay. Lets take a look at the outfit first:
Tunic/Mini dress: Lip Service

Black camisole: Borrowed from Mom

Stockings: This Fashion

Multi-chain cross necklace: Taobao

Knee High black boots (Not shown): Taobao

I'm still getting the hang of dressing with my hair colour and Steph gave a me a really great tip, "dress in black" which is pretty handy since it offsets the colour of my hair nicely. And now I understand why Nonoka and other models with super blond locks can get away with thick eye makeup, because the colour really washes out your face so you need strong eye or lip makeup (or sometimes both!) to bring the attention back to your face. I also chose not to curl my hair because my hair still felt weak after all the chemical treatments and whenever I curl my hair, I apply a ton of hairspray to make sure the curls stay put in the midst of Singapore's heavy humidity, which causes quite abit of hair breakage whenever I wash my hair after that. So now you know, why I don't curl my hair on a daily basis! ;)

Anyway, it was a good thing I decided to have a test run for my boots, because when I actually met the Bf, my right heel had broken off, probably because the glue wasn't strong enough. So I hobbled to a nearby cobbler who managed to glue it back, but warned me that I had to be careful with it. Well, he was right, because I could feel the heel starting to come off slightly on my way home. I guess I'll just use it for my cosplay and maybe sell it off after that, since it does look nice though bit uncomfortable to wear for an extended period of time. Lets just hope the heel holds up during Cosfest! Cross your fingers!


  1. Ah~ I wish I had colored hair but I'm too lazy to maintain it. >u<;

  2. Oh this outfit is soooo cool! It's sexy but still classy and mature. Indeed black looks great with your light hair color, but I love black always XD

  3. OMG that dress is so pretty *o* I am going to see it in my sleep tonight!

  4. Looking gorgeous bb ♥ You have an agejo thing going on which suits you so well with your new blonde hair!

  5. @ osiao - haha, its true that its takes time and effort to maintain dyed hair. I read once that an actress equated dyeing hair to drugs because once you start, you can't stop.

    @ さらまり - Thank you. And I love black too! Hope you get to find yourself and get back to blogging what you love.

    @ ☆~Jenia~☆ - hahahahah, thanks!!

    @ Tori - Thanks! You looks gorgeous with your new blonde hair too!
