Second Skin

Doesn’t my outfit look like a dress? It’s actually a top and skirt that I paired together. Both are in lace but they’re not the same kind. I like pairing different laces together. The different textures make for an interesting match.

Lace on lace looks so romantic and feminine, even more so in this neutral color palette of cream, blush and nude. Usually, with such a safe and conservative palette like this, you can accessorize all you want because there’s plenty of room to style. For this outfit, however, I didn’t really have to accessorize much. My top already had embellishments on its collar so I decided to leave it the way it is. I just kept my hair in a loose ponytail to show my neck off and elongate it more by wearing drop earrings. Turtlenecks are so tricky to wear. You should always find ways to elongate your neck when you’re wearing one.

    Hello Camille,

    Is this appropriate for an office attire? or is it too much? :)) I’m also a fan of laces! I love the whole outfit! <3

      Thanks Kim! Something appropriate, conservative and sophisticated because I’m sure the parents will be there! :) How about a nice pencil cut dress? Nothing strapless. :)

    Napansin ko, your outfit is so simple. But your look in here is equivalent to those looks na bongga talaga. I mean, so elegantly beautiful with just a simple chuchu. Is that because of the lace?

    Good job Camille! I love the styling and everything is so matchy matchy, in a good way – the earrings and the shoes, and your ring and the beaded top! You look like a winter doll lost in the tropics! haha

    I also wanna wear laces! Kaya lang, lagi lang ako sa bahay, walang ibang pinupuntahan. Dahil mommy na ‘ko, I’m afraid I would like magni-ninang sa kasal if I wear one! Haha! Bagay na bagay sa’yo Ms. Camille!

    There have been a lot of people commenting on your look on Lookbook which says that this is a lovely dress! I wanted to tell them that “No, it’s a separate top and skirt!” I would want to know how their reaction goes like if they knew it wasn’t a dress afterall. Haha. SUPRAMAZING COMBINATION!

    You’re definitely channeling Royalty and Class in that outfit of yours! The lace with lace is really romantic. It reminds me of what Juliette would wear if she were born in the modern times and would be working in the corporate world, hahaha! And her Romeo would prolly wear a sleek suit and tie to match her style ;)
