    Getting Excited About Fashion

    When I first bought my sleeveless, high-waist dress at Platinum a nong nong time ago (it was the outing with Auntie Jess and Sherilyn... so probably one or two weeks ago) I decided I'd save it for National Day, because aside from my blue tailored dress (which I wore last National Day so it's kind of a no-no unless I really have nothing else to wear) it's one of my most formal dresses.
    Well, actually, it isn't that formal since it's kind of short, but it's made of a satin-like material with a beautiful floral pattern that, when I first saw it, reminded me of Michelle O, or something that she'd wear, anyway.
    Now I realize that if I reclaim my Confirmation dress from my mum (I agreed to give it to her after we failed to compromise on a way to alter it) I can wear said dress out whenever I want.... channeling not Michelle O, but Keira Knightley!!
    I'd seen the pic of Keira in a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress and blazer many times before but when I saw it just now on RCFA I thought, now that I've bought my blazer with its floral patterned cuffs I can wear the blazer with the dress and wedges. Of course, I'll have to try it out because I've learned from experience that just because outfits work together theoretically it doesn't mean they actually do in real life.
    I went to my closet, thinking of putting the ensemble together on the bed and snapping a pic for this blog, but it turns out my blazer's not out of the wash yet (we didn't buy a new one- we bought the one hanging, and it was in a market, so my mother said it could be really dirty). Oh well. I really can't wait to see my blazer again, I'm thinking of bringing it to Singapore.
    Which reminds me, I need to get packing... Last night my mother said I couldn't wear my coloured shorts out in public when my parents weren't around, so that ruled out my original plan of not bringing jeans (because when it's hot you kind of hate jeans, really). And I couldn't think of any other way to have it so I've been putting the packing list off for some time. But I need to pack by today because our flight's in the early afternoon tomorrow.
    Have tuition today at 2.15, which is in about one hour's time... WHERE DID ALL MY TIME GO??? D: Good thing is, I'll be missing Wednesday's tuition... Bad thing is, that's the only tuition I'll miss. Also, my father pointed out yesterday that I only have about 3 weeks left of the summer. I STILL HAVEN'T DONE MY EL ASSIGNMENT. Oh, damn it.
