My day isn’t over. After I publish this, I’m headed to Makati to meet up with a shoe designer then a movie night with my friends. By request, since it did take me almost two years before I had gotten around to taking a photo of me wearing this dress designed by Kaye Olfindo (esp for my birthday) and since I had a bit of time to spare for the photo so I thought, “Why not?” so I did. Well, this was only the second time I wore it (first time was during my wine party back in 2009). I had attended a christening of my good friend’s son this morning as one of the ninangs (godmother).
My bestfriend and I casually talked about the dress code for occasions like baptisms or christenings over lunch. I mentioned that from my observations, I’ve seen most folks come in casual attire but if a guest is a ninong/ninang, I’ve noticed that he/she dresses more smartly. Personally, I opt to dress up a bit (regardless if I’m a ninang or not) out of respect to the hosts but I’m curious about what the rest of you think about dressing up for these things.
Anyway, one of the things I like about this dress is that I can wear it during day events as well as at night. All I have to do is match it with appropriate footwear and accessories (and maybe my hairstyle too!) to change the look.
