People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing you are the beholder.
I remember when I was in grade school until high school, I was so thin, tall and dark skinned that I was most of the time, the subject of my schoolmates' jokes, calling me names of all sort. It made made me quite insecure and conscious of my looks. Anyway, that was a long time ago and my heart has learned to forgive. Who would have thought that that ugly duckling from back then is now a fashion blogger who flaunts cropped tops and mini skirts? :)
So for today's post, I am wearing another cropped top and this is also from the same shop featured in last week's post. This kind of cropped top is selling like pancakes here in the Philippines at this time. They call it the Megan Top because it was first seen worn by Miss World 2013 Megan Young in one of her OOTDs. The sexy neckline of the top has caused our local Instagram shops to create their respective versions of the Megan Top and of course, I had to get one for myself in Red!
I had been thinking what kind of bottoms would go well with this cropped top when I suddenly remembered that I still have this 17 year old fiery red skirt. Yes you read that right! This very elegant pleated lace midi skirt has been in my closet for that long. It was my mom and dad's Christmas gift to me when I was in the fourth grade and since I'm still sporting a 24 inch waistline, it still fits! I will never have the heart to throw or sell this lovely piece, ever! And look, doesn't it look so gorgeous when paired with this Megan Top? I think it's a sexy and classy combo. Red is such a powerful color! Wear both top and skirt in Red and all eyes will definitely be on you! Or at least, a pair of eyes will be on you lol.
What do you think of this outfit? Did you like it? ^^ Tell me what you think! I'd love to hear from you :)
