Double Duty

     Since Tokyo has been so warm lately, I'm practically living the F21 lace tunic/dress I recently bought. So I apologize for the lack of varied outfit posts, but I think that this should be the last lace-themed one for a while!
     Yesterday I decided to try tucking the tunic into a tight-waisted skirt, and since it won't work under a slim-fitting pencil, my only option was my blush tulip-shaped skirt from H&M. The combination worked perfectly, and the lace didn't get snagged in the zipper like I had feared. I'm still not sure if washing the tunic is a good idea or a risky one, but I think I'm going to take my chances and try it out today. Fingers crossed!


     As you can see from the photo, it's time to head off to the hair salon and get those straggly bangs and puffy, wavy roots taken care of!

Update: Just as I suspected, washing the lace was no problem at all. I'm always a little doubtful when I see "Do Not Wash" labels on something from F21! Such instruction is usually a hoax anyways, IMHO.

  4. Thanks, Tereza! I do love versatile items... I don't really have too many styling ideas, but the tunic-tucked-into-skirt option works every time!
