OOTD: Comfort in Black

One thing I have always wanted is a dress and the lovely color of black. I don’t really have a specific reason though.. I just think I love how it compliments my skin color. Though recently, I think I’ve been in too much comfort with black that I really wanted to get some pastel colors to fill in my closet. Black is okay – lovely but I just think wearing different colors will be good from time to time. Wouldn’t you agree?

It’s odd. Sometimes, I wonder if it has something to do with me being a Scorpio as my zodiac sign – as they say.. Scorpio’s favorite color is definitely a black and a Scorpio’s Gemstone is an Opal. (Not my favorite but I recently got one – thanks to Romwomen for sending it to me!)

I especially love this Monica Dress from Anatomie Wear. It was really plain and simple when you look at it in first glance yet I find it feminine, stylish and versatile. It’s especially convenient for me whenever I do travelling – it doesn’t take too much space – very lightweight unlike most clothing, plus it’s actually wrinkle-free!


Aside from the dress, I super love the necklace, too. I’ve been looking for this kind of necklace for ages (Big thanks to Romwomen!) I like choker type of necklaces. It’s most beneficial for women like me who have an inverted triangle type of body. It gives focus and highlight towards the necklace rather than the bust part, don’t you think? At first I thought it would be really weird but it turn out great though this is the first time I’ve worn one.

I might get addicted and do tons of accessory shopping once again, haha!

PS. I just got out of the shower on this post – so my hair was wet and I wasn’t able to bring my hair products, lol! I know it might look messy and such, apologies for that!
