You know that I am not a big fan of wearing black. Anyway, in this post-quake situation, though more than one month has passed, it still doesn't feel right for me to wear something too bright and colourful. And then this basic black dress becomes very helpful. I can add bright and colourful accessories to it and it will not look "too much", neither "too boring". I can wear it with different jackets, shirts, crop tops or cardi, add different shoes and jewelry and the look will be new and fresh every time. I am going to show you a few of these looks. And for the start there is a little bit dressed up variant. Yesterday we went out for lunch, first time after the quake. I am glad that some of my favourite go-out places didn't suffer any or much damage. Baber Mahal is one of such places. So, I used this lunch as a chance to dress up a little.
By trying different variants I came to conclusion that wearing such type of a crochet top over a basic black dress is the best decision. First, black is a perfect background to emphasize the lacy pattern of the top. Second, no fuss with trying to find what to wear underneath that would look good with the top and with the thing you want to pair it with.
No big choice of hats here in Nepal, they all are of same material and design mostly. But this one, with its nylon flowers and blue brim, seemed a bit different and pretty enough to buy.
Black dress - Giordano, crochet top - Zara, sandals - Refresh, hat - local market, mother-of-pearl earrings - bought in Nepal, mother-of-pearl ring - from Thailand, black onyx ring - from India.
It was nice to go out again. After such disasters you start appreciating small things more.
I hope you're having a fantastic day!
