The Fashion Forward Culottes Are Back!

Yes, they are back and slowly emerging, whether you like it or not! LOL. Do you recall the last time you wore a pair of culottes? I bet it was a very long time ago. I remember owning pieces and wearing them but only until I was 12yo. Yup! because when I reached my teen-aged years, I was already conscious of the clothes I wear. Oh, not that I find culottes weird, haha, its just that I think that if you want to wear a pair of shorts or trousers, then you have to wear something that actually looks like shorts or trousers. Errr, do you get me?

Culottes is defined as women's knee-length trousers, cut with very full legs to resemble a skirt. So there you go! That explains my statement above. Thanks to google. LOL. I mean, why would one who intends to wear trousers would wear something that's just knee-length? Or, why would one who prefers to wear a pair of shorts, would pick something which resembles that of a skirt? Oh yes! Fashion is sometimes that complicated! LOL. 

Now, you'd ask why on earth am I wearing them now? Well, despite my reservation, I decided to wear them simply because it looks cool wearing one these days. Notice most of the shops' front window display are full of culottes? Its also quite a change in my long-standing 'short shorts' and skinny jeans. And to add to that, I found this pair to be not with the 'awkward length'. While culottes aren't very flattering, and despite the 'comic' attached to this piece of clothing, I realized that it's not that bad after all. So, here it is!

Comfort and Sophistication Redefined

Our company Annual Convention this year at Park Inn by Radisson Davao. Here are the ladies and gentlemen of Metro Manila East Region 1!

It was a cocktail dress kind of night, but you know me, I'm a woman who defies convention, literally speaking.. haha! My outfit tonight was inspired by my desire for both comfort and sophistication. If I feel comfortable with what i'm wearing, I feel more confident. And when i'm confident, I feel sexy! (pagbigyan na po!) :-)
