"If I was a Rich Girl, nanananananananananana~" Gwen Stefani sang it right. Well, I'm not like Richie Rich level of rich or even close to that. But when I do have those "I'm feeling rich" days, I'd probably dress like this. Classy, clean, sophisticated, yet youthful and fun (at least, I hope so, lol). This little white dress is my favorite dress to date since I can dress it however I want. My inner-artist is always giddy whenever I get to wear this, because it just literally emulates a blank canvas when I get dressed. The last time I took this piece out of the closet was back in July when I wore it for my graduation. Gosh, how time flies! But thanks to the simple and elegant design of this specific dress, it will always remain a classic piece that is most certainly a must-have in my closet.
White and gold will never go out of style and are a perfect combo that oozes with sophistication when you want to dress up for a day-time event. A simple gold chain necklace speaks volumes along with my uber cute Mickey Mouse watch that I got from my recent trip to the States. And just like they say, your nails speak volumes as well. So I decided to color coordinate my nails with this look while I was at it.
To keep things cohesive, I opted for monochrome pieces for my shoes, bag, and sunnies. Black never fails to add a dash of chic-ness to the outfit. Plus it's always a good contrast to anything white.
The key point of this outfit? My boyfriend's plaid polo that I borrowed for the day, of course! Instead of a denim jacket (for a super casual feel) or a blazer (for a super posh feel), I went for something in between, like a crisp boyfriend buttondown in a cool plaid blue to make a statement but also be able to blend well with the rest of the look. And instead of wearing it or letting it drape over my shoulders, I tied it around my waist for a more laid back feel. It also acts as a belt to cinch my waist in order to accentuate my frame. And it doesn't hurt that the plaid print and blue hue is a good balance from all the neutral and monochromatic colors as a whole either.
No body said looking rich was easy, lol.
PS: Thanks to Den-den for taking my photos! ♥
PPS: Feel free to watch Gwen Stefani sing to this song circa 2004. Yep, I officially feel old.
