Hey Coffeeholics! This is the outfit that I wore for the Freeway x Celerio event. If you are my blog reader (thank you so very much btw!) then you would know already of my dislike towards any outfits that isn't black and most especially if it was white. But when I saw this dress at the thrift rack, I fell in love with it. It was the kind of dress and print that I never wear but have always wanted to try it out. So I bought it at around Php 80 (haha.. ooops. I spilled the beans here.. but what's the sense of wearing cool thrifted outfits without bragging about the awesome deal you got in buying it? LOL.. couldn't resist!) without thinking about it too much. That was months ago. So there it stayed in my closet. The white printed dress became the "white elephant" dress. (A white elephant is a valuable possession which its owner cannot dispose of and whose cost (particularly cost of upkeep) exceeds its usefulness.)
Every time I opened my closet to look for something to wear, I'd always see the white printed dress. It would look so pretty and girly on the hanger that always encouraged me to try it on. Then I'd try it on and check myself out. Ugh. My reactions were always the same! I'd always find fault in it. Maybe I'm prejudiced to white clothing? I always felt that it was off .. that it didn't feel like me.. and that it didn't flatter me at all. Then at the last minute, change back to my usual colors. Very frustrating and time consuming! hehe. So finally, I decided that I will wear the White Printed Dress as an experiment. So that I will quit arguing to myself about it. Besides, I wanted to at least wear one white dress in my lifetime other than my wedding gown. hahaha.. so I did.
What do you think? Sometimes its really hard to break away from my comfort zone in terms of style and comfort. But I always believe that a little change to try out something different should be done even once in a while. I'll be honest and say that I wasn't entirely happy wearing my dress. Yes, I was conscious.. sa lagay na yan na mega ngitit ako! haha. But I'm glad I wore it. Will I be wearing that dress again? I don't know. Maybe I will finally lend it to my sister who has also been dying to try out the dress as well.
So Coffeeholics, how about you? Do you have a similar "experiment" dress, shirt, or pants there in your closet? You know, you bought it coz you thought it looks cool then later on couldn't bring yourself to wear it? I challenge you to wear it! haha. I did and I think it wasn't that bad. So do share share share!
