    Catch Up: Zalora Inspires & A Birthday

    I feel like this coming out of the woodwork thing is going to be happening pretty (un)often this year. How am I still alive I’m virtually drowning in work and obligations. It’s been keeping me busy, which is good I guess? I’m the sort of person who thrives on having stuff to do.

Interestingly, the dress featured in these three outfits is what Ottie calls my “nun outfit” – it’s long, black, and I should stop right there because I just found my mind in the gutter.
