Black & White Forever

The last of my collaboration with We Love Colors is here, featuring another pair of thigh high stockings in black and white stripes. Being in a monochromatic mood lately, this was perfect for the outfit I wore out to town one day.

Monochrome ootd: M)phosis white shirt, Forever 21 black skirt, We Love Colors b&w striped thigh high stockings, Rubi black platform boots, Paris Kids rose necklace.

I’ve mentioned it before in my previous post, but these stockings are way more comfortable than any thigh high socks I own. They don’t pinch my thighs as much for one, and I don’t have to worry about constantly pulling them up. In fact, I may very well be replacing my current striped socks with these!

I also made my first OOTD video! I’ve never understood why it’s a thing, but hey, playing with my phone’s slow-motion feature took the edge off whatever qualms I had. Perhaps next time I’ll take a proper one with a better video recorder, but for now, try to ignore the glaring pixels and enjoy:

 

Also, here’s a shoutout to Shophouse Sixtyfive for their tasty, tasty lipbalms! Shophouse Sixtyfive is a local brand invoking memories through their old-school flavoured beeswax lipbalms. I’ve never been a fan of perfume-y stuff, but I’ve found myself addicted to their Coffeeshop Kopi O lipbalm (shown in the video) ever since I opened it; I love coffee but am unable to process the caffeine (it wrecks havoc whenever I succumb to the temptation), so this has been a staple ever since. It’s not just the flavours though, the application goes on real smooth, in a consistency that is perfect for layering lipstick on… but that is to be expected when the ingredients include premium essential oils and beeswax. Seriously, you’ve got to head on down to try their lipbalms from their pop-up booths someday.
