Eventing OOTD

19 December 2016

Summer. . . heat, mosquitoes, flies, family members trying to regulate your ultramel intake. The cup is really half empty with this one. The plan was to actually go somewhere with people, do stuff and fill it up with summer beverages but that was a bust because I have to stay in school and study for my two deferred exams. I wouldn't have made it if I actually sat for the mains. I even had outfits planned and everything. I was hoping the people things and places part was going to work itself out although judging from my past record on such things, it would have been highly unlikely but God did the things and I went somewhere.

I had already given up on that when I took the pictures below but then I got invited to a brunch/luncheon conversation by Zarh, a fellow student developing her brand and my social anxiety screamed no! Besides me not knowing anybody at that event, I am always extremely uncomfortable around people, an absolute mess but then I thought Mvumikazi, try something different, besides, I wanted to meet the young black businesswomen; their launch parties and high teas were the talk of the campus. As self conscious and a nervous wreck as I was, I think I handled the whole thing quite well. . .except of course the part where I called champagne "fancy umqombothi ". *facepalm* Don't judge me! It was my first time drinking the stuff. Thank you Zarh !!!🙋🙋🙋

I've never really attended one of these events and was unclear about the dresscode so I decided to go for something easy. . . my cold shoulder top from last year, some harem pants/jumpers i got from Legit and the very pretty shoes from The Fix. Soooo Shiiinyyyyy. They also come in a copper brown colour. The outfit looked great when I was shooting in it but then for some reason looked so unflattering and uncomfortable at said event. Did I mension how nervous I was.

A quick change into faux wrap around skirt also from the fix and the look becomes girly girl. This skirt doesn't have a very interesting backstory accompanying it except that its very oddly made. The back is shorter than the front and may not fully accommodate a fuller hind quaters. I thought my sishwapha and I would get away away with it but nope, it rides up even if I don't wear it as a high waist skirt. . .Theres a potentially good outfit gone to waist. Isn't it just cute?!  I Should know coz I generally don't do cute. I usually throw in something like boots some skull related article of clothing or a backpack to make it more "me" but I've been slowly trying to get into this girly girl thing. Its actually really not that bad. Until of course somebody complements you and ruins everything. I'll explain later. I'm telling you, if I had my sewing machine and similar materiel, I would fix this skirt right up or just remake it.

The shoes just do it for me in both outfits. And to think, I almost missed out on them because of how tight the front band is.Wide feet people stay missing out on cute shoes but as with most of my clothing, a little squeezing, forcing, tightness and bone cracking pain with every step I take, I juuuust managed to fit into them. They're so shiny!!
