IMG_2185ae copyIMG_2143ae copy IMG_2206ae copyIMG_2217ae copy Enter the new LBD. Or, Lazy Black Dress - a moniker more appealing to me. It seems this may just be the most ideal lazy night outfit. When you're in a last minute pickle and "skin tight" and "mini" just don't cut it, enter Self Portrait. It's detailed enough to be eye-catching, cinched at the waist so as avert the eye from the Saturday night dinner you just indulged in and sporting a neckline that even Grandma would be proud of. It also works layered if this Manila weather is a little on the chilly side or shoulder-baring isn't your thing. Combined with the beautiful bougainvilleas in the background, you hopefully haven't noticed the amount of sweat pouring off me from the Singapore heat or the anguish in my face at the fact that shooting in and around these gardens leads to some very angry ants - not at all interested in my story of LBDs but moreso in chomping their way through and into my oxfords.

On a less painful note, how is everyone's 2015 turning out so far? There are a few very exciting projects coming up which, of course, are a secret as of now but I am bursting with inspiration and can't wait to get the ball rolling! Please do comment what you want to see more of on Miss Jones this year!
