Balancing Act

When it comes to accessorizing, I tend to be too-bare or too-decorated. I've looked into a washroom mirror at midday and realized I should've put on earrings or been in the MRT in the morning and removed a ring and bracelet because I felt I looked too "busy". This one above, with a chunky agate necklace and a ruffled leather bag, I think I got right. I think. I think.

Imagine a Ruffled Dress...

If you try to imagine a dress covered in ruffles, you probably won't imagine this one. This refreshingly non-dainty take on a ruffled dress is by Japanese duo Hokuto Katsui and Nao Yagi for Uniqlo. Then tied at the waist with a neon green belt, I think it leans much more to charmingly quirky than overtly girly.
