Best Dressed Princess | What I Wore

Princess For a Day!
Happy Monday! I’m excited to share with you today’s outfit as it’s been almost a year in the making. And by that I mean, it has taken me ten months to finally shoot this outfit and have it as a proper blog post. I’ve been meaning to do it but I just kept putting it off until the perfect moment. That perfect moment is now and I’m so happy with how the pictures turned out and if I hadn’t of waited so long I don’t think I would be this happy with the result if I had rushed it. So the back story to this outfit was I went to an event last year called the Project Vanity 9th Anniversary Blog Event. They required to come dressed in pink and had a little contest of best dressed. Well that day I had a different outfit in mind but it didn’t work like something was telling me not to wear that outfit so I changed into this. It so happens that decision led me to winning best dressed that day and I won a prize for it. I’ll link the blog post and vlog from that exact day below if you’d like to know more. I never got a chance to shoot that outfit besides a couple iPhone shots. I took those at the mall that wasn’t well lit and it was just good at the time.

Since I loved the outfit so much I wanted to properly shoot it and show it off. I then planned to shoot it in Taguig where these were taken. At the time I was so busy because I was getting ready to leave on a plane to Palawan and my birthday was coming up too and I just put it off until it was too late. It was either rainy or I was too busy or something so I left the outfit idea note in my phone until I could. Now in November I wasn’t as busy and made a slot to go to this place and shoot a mini lookbook but again it got rescheduled. December came and I was in Baguio shooting winter and Christmas looks so no room for this girly pink ensemble. Well an idea sparked in my head mid-January and I realized February was coming up and that meant Valentine’s Day. Then it hit me. What a perfect time to shoot this look? So that lookbook in my notes I had stored for months including this exact outfit became a reality. I managed to shoot the lookbook and 4 outfits which you probably have been seeing on the blog. Now that you know the backstory and the lengths I went through to get this outfit shot then I can finally give you the details of what the best dressed outfit looks like.

For the best dressed outfit I started with this top. It was my favorite top of 2017 and i wore it everywhere. If I did a 2017 fashion favorites then this would be number one on the list. I saw one in stock online and I think I am tempted to buy it. So it’s blush pink which is one of my favorite colors to wear. However that is not my favorite detail and I think you can guess what is. The sleeves tie into bows and I love that. It’s just the perfect top and that event I mentioned was the first time I ever wore this top. I had just snipped off the tags right before I left the house. Now to go with this gorgeous top I went with this hot pink tulle skirt. I had it custom made and I have a few custom made tulle skirts as I was obsessed with them last year. I had one done in of course my favorite color as it is my signature color. It is so flirty and I feel amazing in it. Like a princess. It is amazing to twirl in and is just amazing.

For my accessories I kept it just as princessy as the outfit. I did change up the bag from last time as I thought this one went better. I got this clutch from my cousin’s wife when she came back from Dubai. It is a pink peachy studded clutch and I love the tone of the pink to contrast the rest of the outfit and not be too matchy in color but more of a gradient. As for shoes, I went with my cream heeled sandals as they were the perfect option and went so well plus I needed to add heels to make the outfit even more dressy as last time I wore it with sandals and I don’t think it went as well as these heels. The earrings I went with these bow wreath ones because honestly I had no other earrings that I thought would look good. I forgot where I put my actually bow ones so I went with these. I did pull out my Pandora bracelet I got for my birthday and it was the perfect touch and matched the outfit to the tee. Lastly my bow is new and it is a blush pink with rose gold polka dots and it is so dainty and feminine. I didn’t want to go for too big of a one as I already had bows on my sleeves to the size I went for complimented the bow sleeves.

I’m over the moon happy with how these turned out and now that I can look back at it I think I’m much happier I put it off. It was the right decision as this is more than what I had in mind. I felt like an absolute princess shooting these and the backdrop was perfect. It really is like I shot these in Venice and it matched the location perfectly. I don’t think I can come up with a better shoot.

If you didn’t know I took these in the Grand Venice Canal Mall in Taguig last week. I took my cousin and his family and we had a fun day shooting my pictures and then touring the sites. A lot of little girls stopped to stare as I was twirling and taking my pictures and it was so cute seeing their faces light up as they stared at me. That’s why I named this look. I felt like a Disney princess. I guess that’s what it feels like. So while I was there I shoot four outfits and a lookbook. The outfits will be coming out throughout the month and the lookbook is out now on my channel. I love how it turned out and though it was stressful shooting 4 outfits in a row and changing right after the other and switching out the accessories and makeup and all that I think they are worth it as I love each and every one I shot that day.

So that was my best dressed outfit. I do think it is and even if I didn’t win then I think this is still my best outfit. If I was an outfit I think this would be it and I would wear it for the rest of my life if I had to. I hope you enjoyed this outfit and let me know if you won best dressed for anything before because honestly it’s the coolest feeling. So I hope you have an amazing week and if you are putting something off then I suggest waiting for the right moment and then doing it!

What is your best outfit that you deserve to win best dressed for?
