Birds

Injecting a little fun again on corporate dressing! I can never really live without prints and colors, maybe even if I was working the corporate ladder in a 9-5 job. I’ll probably cause a few headaches for the HR department or my boss and get in trouble with the way I dress. They’ll say, “Camille, you dress too… happily!”

Meh. Bite me (with matching bratty little face and tongue sticking out)! Haha! Just kidding. I wouldn’t want to get fired.

So anyway, let’s just pretend I do have a 9-5 job with a boss and HR department that aren’t killjoys. I’m sure they’ll end up loving this owl-print top as much as I do! I mean look at those owls! They’re so freaking cute! If you work at a more conservative company and bright colors aren’t really that accepted, you can always pair this with a navy blue or olive green skirt. Tan would work great too!

In my opinion, people who dress happy, feel happy. Sometimes, what you wear can really set your mood for the entire day. So if you’re lucky enough to be working for a company that aren’t as strict with the dress code, I say go for some prints and colors once in a while. Of course I’m not saying you should wear neon to a meeting with the big bosses. It’s a given that you do have to consider your agenda for the day and who you’re meeting. If your agenda is clear and it won’t affect any of your meetings, brighten up your day why don’t you?

    SMGTW is love. :)) they`re just so pretty yet super affordable! oh myyyy. OWLS. I love owls. <3 they`re super cute. I have few things with an owl design on it. I`ll try to find a top with an owl design. and shoes?! haha. (blabbermouth mode on :D) if I were an office girl, I would definitely that kind of outfit with happy colors. as we all know, corporate attires are usually in dull colors like black, brown, gray. in short, dark colors. :D and yea, I noticed your pretty earrings. I just love its color (though I don`t like pink that much ;D).

    Hi Camille! What if you work in a hospital? What is your take on putting on bright colored clothes? I think it would brighten the mood and patients will be more happy? But I’m not sure if it’s appropriate or not. What do you think? Thanks in advance for the advice! :-)

    Hi there, Camille! I was wondering if you could do a blog post about your wardrobe? Like, the most expensive piece of garment you bought, the cheapest, your favorite piece, pictures of your walk-in closet, the outfit that you think wasn’t worth it and you ended up wasting money, the works! My curiosity has been killing me for days now! Hope you could grant my wish! xx

    Student palang ako but I PROMISE, yes, promise talaga, pag-nag-work na ako, a la CAMILLE CO ang peg. Kahit na i-fire pa ako ng boss ko, fashion has no rules eh! Anyway, we’re going to have our educational trip sa museums sa Los Banos and sa Mind Museum. :) Since our school loves us, civilian clothes lang pero dap at naka-pants and closed shoes. Can you suggest what to wear? Thanks! And also may gusto along suotin na ballet shoes (foldable sya na may snakeskin print), nag-fit lang sya sa akin kasi garterized yung end part nung flats kaso medyo obvious pa rin na di talaga kasya sa akin, what could I wear or place sa shoes para it would seem like they really fit? Tissue ba? Chos! THANKS!

    • itscamilleco

      You mean it’s too big? I’m not sure! Pwede rin siguro. Or choose pants that are slightly longer so that they cover that part :) Why don’t you wear a nice buttondown? Para hindi rin ganun kainit :)

    Pink lipstick again. It really suits you! Parang nahahawa na nga rin ako ee, kaso di pwede kasi baka magmukha akong Nicki Minaj xD BTW you mentioned sa comment ko na you need your contact lense to see. Mataas ba grado ng mata mo? :( Either way ganda mo pa rin. Gusto ko na rin magpablonde ng hair heehee at pag naiisip kong kamukha kita (imagination lang po ah) nagkakaron ako ng pag-asa. Wooh go fighting spirit! xoxo
