RANDOM PAIR - AN OUTFIT POST

Earlier this week, I played journalist, and went to ACRS (Asian Counseling and Referral Services) of Seattle to interview public service clients for the International Examiner.

What's so special about that? 

Well, with a kid and a horrible cold, I had ZERO time (and zero energy) to get out of sweats. So I threw this black-and-red pair together into an ensemble. It took two minutes.

Thank God for pencil skirts! They are totally my go-to.



Pencil skirt to the rescue!

The notebook is not a prop. I swear!

LOL. Hey, gotta have at least one pose pic. (Please excuse the puffy face. The cold was pretty bad.)


Have you ever thrown an outfit together?

If so, how did it work out?

  7. I love black and red together. It's such a easy chic look that EVERYONE can pull off and it's a nice twist on a the classic black/white look. You really can't go wrong with pencil skirts. They are key for any professional outfit!

  26. I think you look pretty good for someone who isn't feeling well! : ) Love the skirt and the red top suits you wonderfully. It's always good to have that "go to" piece in your wardrobe. I had a few that I could interchange tops and give a new look to when I was working back in NY.
