I first blogged about the emerald colored outfit "The Power of Emerald" in February in 2013. After almost a year, I found myself writing the same topic again with so much excitement and still being inspired by this rich-and-unique color. There is a common thing that is so hard to explain about these 2 blog entries. Last year, I published "The Power of Emerald" right before I left to the airport. This year is coincidently no difference. I'm trying to finish this blog entry so that I can start packing for my holiday trip in Vietnam in 2-day time. How did the whole coincident-thingy happen? I had no idea, but it did feel like talking about an old friend after a long time.
It's also crazy to see how long did I take to wear that necklace. If it hadn't been for the emerald midi skirt, I wouldn't have the chance to bring this unique necklace out for a spin again. However let's not talk about the necklace today. I wanted to share with you my 1970s moment when I wore this gorgeous emerald midi skirt out 2 weeks ago.
I've been saying many times how much I love the midi skirt. I've tried to stop myself from buying too many of them, but it's so hard to ignore this particular skirt. As a statement piece on its own, the emerald midi skirt is such a luxurious, sophisticated and glamorous wardrobe staple that needs very minimum accessories to go with it. I mean, you could instantly look chic and be a head-turner whenever you put the skirt on. For some reasons, this look reminded me of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And The City movie. She always looked so feminine, so elegant and classic in long dresses or long and voluminous skirts. Despite the fact that her life story and mine strangely have so many things in common, I'm obsessed with her style and of course, her wardrobe.
Notice the people looking at me from behind? Were they waiting for their buses or were they wondering: "How could this girl walk so dangerously on the street like that?." The thought made me laugh. It was a quiet one-way street in the afternoon, and I decided to take the risk having some Carrie Bradshaw moments of my own. On the other hand, I assumed and insisted that people were looking at my skirt.
