i got some sheer, a little bit of leather and a whole lot of black

hello tuesday! tuesday is the only time on weekdays wherein i can be relaxed because i don't have to work (although i have a lot chores to do and i go to church with mom at night) and that only means one thing, i have time to blog! :)

i've never been this excited with any outfit before! i don't know but there's something about this outfit that makes me giddy to share it with everyone. i've been thinking about the sheer top i found in my mom's closet (which is originally my sister's but she sadly admits she was the one who bought it) ever since lace became a trend again. i thought the sheer top would be so perfect with blazers (just like lace tops). then a few days ago, i saw stylescrapbook and theblondesalad wearing their sheer tops and i knew i just had to revive mine (it's mine now, ha!). 

the original plan was to wear it with a blazer but i thought it would be perfect with these high-waisted leather shorts i bought last friday from the thrift store (guess how much i got it for??)...and wahlah, it didn't disappoint me! it looks so much in sync...like it was meant to be! :) :) :) plus i've always wanted to rock the closed button button-down polo look ever since i saw liz uy rocked it a couple of times during philippine fashion week.

when i twitpic the first photo for my sister to see, she said she loved it and it looks like a "sosyal na kontrabida (classy villain)". i really wanted to show her that this sheer top can actually be reinvented in a way that it won't look hoochy.

whoever said that sheer with leather is hoochy, didn't know how to style ;)

H&M round toe pumps

cocktail rings

i have one problem with these leather shorts though...you have to make sure that when being photographed, it is all ironed and straightened out because a few wrinkles would make it look like you have a bulge (note to self: maintain proper posture all the time). HAHA!!!

but tell me...the hair pulled back and braided is so perfect for this outfit, yeah? :)
