This post should really be called "My Attempt at Looking Remotely Smart...and Remotely Presentable...and Remotely Lady-like"
As you can tell, this is not my usual get up...no sir! BUT it is my graduation!!! Yes people, this chick is a soon to be graduate with a 2: 1 BA Honors! Oh yeaaaahhhh. That's me :-D.
In 10 hours, it will be my graduation ceremony and I am still torn 40% and 60% between outfits 1 and outfit 4! I got Stephie-Pie round mine today to help me choose and she too was torn! I am 60% going with the trouser set....But I do love the dress in number 4!! Decisions sucks guys. They suck!
These are the reasonings for why the outfits got a yay or a nay:
Outfit 1-Its smart...elegent...and I can walk in these shoes (unlike the other beauties I bought...which BTW I am still keeping..for future use...) No one else is as likely to wear trousers. Its grey and cream... so it will not blend in with the hideous black vampire gown/rented robe and hat.
Outfit 2- The structured, BE-YON-CEEEE hips on this skirt will not show under said vampire gown which totally defeats the purpose of this BE-YON-CCEEE hips style skirt (you can't really see the shape of the skirt too well in the picture though) It will just look like a simple high waisted skirt = blah!
Outfit 3- A tad "I Borrowed the same outfit my mum wore to graduation" (which i secretly love...) Stephie says: YOU'RE NOT WEARING MESH TO GRADUATION.
Outfit 4- I had to wear an extra skirt..because it is super short...like thigh skimming...and a hoochie going to graduation with lots of gold jewellery and patent heels to get her 2: 1 scroll thing is not a good look! But with the extra length..it looks sooo good!! I love the dress :-( its a shame that its black...it will get lost inside the vampire gown...I will look too Goth. But it is pretty....
I do know..I will be wearing my 80s, tribal-ish gold triangle necklace and earring set (NY flea market $20 oh yeaahhhh!) even though Stephie hates it, and also my aptly named "Coming to America" belt (NY market $10 oh yyyeaaahhhh!) which someone also told me it resembles something out of The Power Rangers...
Anyway, I'm torn between outfits. I shall sleep on it. Wish me luck...fingers cross I do not do something super cringey...like fall over....
