Whenever I have a chance to go out, I always try to think of an outfit a few days ahead and play with different accessories. It also provides me with a chance to post on my Instagram account ceciliascloset888. The above picture was taken when I was preparing to go out to one of last year’s Christmas parties. My bedroom is kind of a mess on most days, so I generally don’t take pictures here! I had a few dresses in mind, but settled with my Roland Mouret Herbert wool dress which is more warm compared to some of my other dresses. It’s absolutely one of my favourites and can be worn with the sleeve on or off the shoulder. I was playing around with my shoes and wondering which pair to go with the dress and finally decided on these Christian Louboutin Lady Peep python heels, which I’ve never worn before.
Another outfit prep from late last fall is shown below of my Christian Louboutin So Kate heels with this gorgeous silk scarf which I wore to a really beautiful Indian restaurant. I had a lot of difficulty finding an accessory with these heels, but this scarf just compliments the watercolour theme so well that it’s become my go to accessory whenever I wear these heels. I paired it with a simple white dress to really emphasize the shoes and scarf.
I must have been very into the watercolour theme last fall! Here’s another outfit below of a very pretty dress that I purchased from H&M. I was told in the past that Asian skin tones generally should avoid yellow and green tones as it would make our skin more sallow, but I really loved this dress that I had to purchase it. I think it was also on sale too for $20 which was too good of a deal to pass! I love finding a good steal 😀 It’s also super comfy in a very stretchy neoprene kind of material, which will allow me to actually eat when I’m out for dinner. I paired it with a J Crew costume necklace and Christian Louboutin Altadama heels in Perche Soleil.
On another day, I missed my Christian Louboutin Filter pumps so I took them out from my shrine of shoes. These shoes are quite comfy and I thought I’d get a lot of wear from them, but somehow I haven’t been reaching for this pair all that often. I tried a couple of outfits, but they just don’t work for me. Unfortunately, I may have to let these go… *sigh* On the other hand, the colour is a perfect pairing with my Essie nail polish in Sole Mate and CL’s Miss Clichy lipstick, which I love for going out on a date. It’s rich and saturated in colour, but feels perfectly smooth and hydrating.
I often wear my Loubies for going out because they’re not that appropriate or professional for the work place. However, once in a while I’ll also pull out my Manolo Blahnik BB heels like when we went to this restaurant below. The “Titanium” colour is so versatile, I can wear it to work with a formal attire, or with a casual chic outfit, or make it more dressy like with this Mexx silk dress and glittering tights! These tights used to be my favourite because they’re super fun and keep me warm in the Winter months.
Here I was just playing around for fun when I got this new Guerlain lipstick. It has more of an orange hue, or deep coral, or vermillion shade? I’m going to call it “Chinese red” lol! Initially I found it hard to wear, but I imagined it being paired with my Céline Trio and Christian Louboutin Jaws, both of which are not a true red. At least in the picture below, I think they look great together and could be worn with a simple LBD.
I think I was feeling feisty and needed to show my cougar side below! Raaaawwwrrr! No I’m just kidding! To this day, Christian Louboutin still makes the best leopard print. These So Kate heels and Sweet Charity mini-bag are the perfect example. I get so many compliments when I wear this duo together that they really call for a lot of attention – sometimes to a point where I feel uncomfortable… So a tip that I’d recommend is be sure to keep the rest of the outfit simple if you’re wearing something similar, especially in a leopard print! Unless of course you want the attention, then hold your head up high and strut your stuff girl!
Lastly to end the night, here’s a different kind of outfit in Agent Provocateur, which can only be paired with a pair of black patent Christian Louboutin heels! 😉 Even for this, I had to choose between So Kate or Pigalle 120? I can be so indecisive, but whichever you choose, make sure they’re sky-high and walk with confidence! Have a great night and weekend everyone!
