The first word that pop out off my mind when I saw these outfit shots is flare. I don't why but I have this adoration for flared skirts like these. Sometimes, the puffy-er the better. They bring out a certain vibe of youth and effortlessness. Effortless chic, as they say. And it was just a lucky coincidence that we happened to both wear flared dresses that time! We used to think that we should wear outfits of the same style more often when we're together. But I guess we don't even have to plan them anymore, we usually end up wearing colors of the same family or styles of the same trend. We really are somehow twins by heart, soul and passion, aren't we?
Most of the time, Char and I commute (take the bus or MRT) to go to these events. We are (just like Ms. Anagon the fashionista-commuter!). That's why I always choose to wear an easy-go flattering dress. In this outfit, I belted it up with Cole Vintage, and matched it with my new nude Forever 21 platforms. My outfit wasn't really planned. It was a last minute decision to pair the pieces. I'm really glad that it turned out quite well. *grins* -Nina

I have three takes on this outfit. First, zipped-up jacket. Second, open-zip. And third, no jacket. It's amazing how the effect of just simply zipping your jacket can change the whole vibe of your look. Since I can't decide at home which one to go with, I decided to do all three during the night.
Zipping up the jacket gives the illusion of having the jacket as your top, making the whole look as a two-piece.

The open-zip gave the outfit that whole rocker chic edge.
The no-jacket look was cleaner, youthful and happy. It shifted the mood entirely from fierce to fresh.

Which mix among the three do you like best?
