Sequin skirt – Banana Republic Men’s watch – Longines, Gift from J
What and Where
Before I launch into today’s post, let me just tell you how weird it was to be so disconnected to the world of technology! I apologize for missing your posts but for some odd reason (it’s 2010, this shouldn’t happen anymore!), my Twitter account wouldn’t authorize my log-in and when we crossed over the border, AT&T wouldn’t provide me a data network so I had no Internet so no following my Tweety Birds for Black Friday deals, oye!
On to today’s fashion tip’s – the versatility of the white shirt! This first outfit was completely inspired by my fabulous blogger friend Naina, a professional career momma who manages to always look great in every outfit she puts on. I usually reserve my sequins and blings during nights out but paired with a crisp button down shirt, you can take this ensemble to the office on a casual Friday, a city brunch with friends on Sunday or a movie matinee in the afternoon. Simply keep the top simple by choosing less feminine shirts, e.g. a tank top with a denim jacket, a lace cami with a boyfriend cardi or any form fitting or flowy black blouse will surely do!

I’m still mortified to recall the time I walked in into a meeting, with black trousers and tucked in white button down… my colleague turns around and jokingly (not funny!) said, here’s our waitress for the day! Ugh! Since then, I’ve never worn that combination together but I’ve found a chicer alternative: the white button down over black skirt combo!
The colour palette on this is very simple, you can definitely pile on the statement accessories: from necklaces to bracelets to bold earrings and look at me scarves. And this, you can wear anywhere! I say, go to a restaurant and stand beside a server, let’s see who’s calling you a waitress now? Okay, who am I kidding, someone may still say – excuse me, can I have the bill please?
