Edgy Preppiness & Open Skies

Dress: Mango, Blazer, Cuff and Necklace: H&M, Boots: Payless, Watch: Swatch
This morning a colleague gave me a magazine called Open Skies to read, pointing out an article she thought I'd like. I loved the article, and also the magazine. I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of writing and articles and the mag's content in general. The funny thing is I've been receiving this magazine at work for some time now but this is the first time I actually read it! I had never even bothered flicking through it because it's the Emirates airline's in-flight magazine and I assumed it would be boring. But now I really want to read them all! I actually searched my office for any back issues but sadly I've thrown them away. I'm such an idiot. Sigh.
Moral of my story? Don't judge a book by it's cover. It might have really interesting things inside.

On another note, I love dresses. Some women don't like them because they're not versatile. I beg to differ. It all depends on how you accessorize. Drape a scarf/ put on a jacket/ wear a chunky necklace/ pair it with leggings or stockings and it'll change your look. Of course, footwear also matters. Ankle boots add a nice quirky edge to a feminine dress, similar to what I've worn today.
