GOLD AND BLACK

8/28/13

We had a mock trial for our English class last Wednesday. I volunteered as a prosecution attorney and though our prof told us to wear something “smart”, I chose to dress up accordingly for the event. Not to mention that Glenn (click HERE to check out his blog) and I actually planned to shoot that day for the New York Fashion Week contest in lookbook. Since the Mock Trial was divided into 2 sessions, plus we can have as many entries as we like for the NYFW contest, Glenn and I decided to submit 2 entries to increase our chances of winning. The theme was Lincoln Center-ready. I didn’t know exactly what they expect us to wear so I checked out other entries to give me an idea about what Lincoln Center-ready meant. Well, most were wearing something casual, and some ladies even wore bright colors. I gathered possible outfits to wear for the Mock Trial slash Fashion Week shoot. The Fashion Week will be held on September, fall season. We thought that Fall fashion is usually not as bright as spring or summer, so I eliminated the ones too bright for fall. For the mock trial, I thought an attorney must wear something court-appropriate. So I made sure my outfit satisfied the conditions for both the Mock Trial and NYFW.

I ended up with this gold and black apparel.

This is what I wore for the first day of our Mock Trial, slash 1st entry for the NYFW contest.image

We had the shoot early morning and I don’t understand why the heat was excruciating. Please bear with my sweaty face.image

I brought a blazer since I thought it will make me look more like a lawyer for the Mock Trial, but the temperature that morning forbid me to wear it.

I intentionally brought these super high heels for the shoot alone. I did not want to wear it during the trial because of the fear of embarrassing myself in front of everyone in case I tripped. But they were fab, don’t you think? I also painted my nails bright red to add color to my whole look.

Do you see what I mean about my bright-colored nails? It also matched my colorful bracelet. I was not originally part of the ensemble but it has been my habit to wear it wherever I go. It is actually a rosary bracelet from my friend, Penas. I wear it all the time, regardless of whether it matched my outfit or not. I considered removing it for this shoot, since it might ruin the outfit. But because it matched my nails, I guess it’s safe to wear it. Both gave a pop of color to the whole look.
