Shop the Look:
Dorothy meets Lolita meets Parisian, because there’s seldom a brand with the transformative power Realisation Par has with its feminine pieces.
As many of you know, I
almost never wear color, let alone red. However, the couple of occasions where I have sported a red piece in a 4 year blogging time span, I only have done so because those particular pieces only look good in that color. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t hate color, I like color, just not on me. My aversion to wearing anything outside the neutral tone spectrum started since I was a teenager and continued during university, where I was often mocked due to it with a couple of idiots calling me ‘Morticia’ because of my predilection for wearing head-to-toe black (and no, I was never a goth).
Color is just…well, too loud for me. I prefer the understated, the simple, and the quiet to the loud and over-the-top. I prefer going back to the purity of form and color, which is also why my style is mostly minimal. I always felt attracted to understated elegance and quiet sophistication and color feels to take that away instead of adding something to the equation. However, I am really liking red lipstick, which I have never ever worn in my entire life, mostly due to the fact that I’ve never found the right shade for my thin lips without making them look even thinner. That was until Givenchy sent me this perfect shade some months back and now I am considering wearing red lipstick more often.
Speaking of pieces that only look good in red, this Realisation Par top is one of those sexy numbers that I feel take me from the awkward geeky person I am to feeling like a bombshell (not that I think I look like one, but I do like how it looks). Few brands can boast of such a transformative power, where all the pieces are made to make you feel sexy and feminine to the max without looking vulgar due to the vintage vibe in each of them.
