Fashion Styling Concept: Bohemian Glamour

Christmas season is never complete without having to attend even a single Christmas party.  And one of the most awaited Christmas parties that I attended this year was our company's party which was to be held by division or by department. In our case, we prepared for a department party only since we do not belong officially to a certain division as we are directly reporting to the President & CEO of the company.  With this, we were at an advantage of being able to conceptualize anything under the sky and made it happen the way we imagined it to be.

And so, we agreed to take the BOHEMIAN concept and entitled our party as BOHEMIAN FLAIR.  To complete the concept, each one of us had to be in our most Bohemian-looking outfit.  And see below for the outfit that I have decided to strut on the party.

Foremost, let me define first what B O H E M I A N means..(via Pinterest)
(n.) Gypsy, Wanderer. A person, musician, artist or writer who lives a free-spirited life and believes in truth, freedom and love.

 This was quite an unflattering photo, but this was the only most decent solo photo of mine that was captured.   We had a fashion walk to allow the judges to look over at our outfits and to judge how we  model on the catwalk.  Oh, I forgot to mention, the outfit and the modeling was a contest.  Yes, a contest.   And it soaked up us all in a "temporary intoxicating" pressure.

The list below were the awards that were declared:

- outstanding male, most participative, best dressed male, "head turner" -
- outstanding female, most participative, best dressed female, "head turner" -

- best catwalk during the fashion show -
- male with the best Bohemian/Boho outfit -
BEST BOHEMIAN OUTFIT - Female category
- female with the best Bohemian / Boho outfit -

 But can you think of what concept I had in mind in pulling off this look?  
I called my ensemble as BOHEMIAN GLAMOUR.

Here's a decoding of my BOHEMIAN GLAMOUR look:

1.) The dress - which was the centerpiece, was of multi-print vibrant flowy dress, typical peasant style off-shoulder neckline; length was maxi and I have to slice the dress on one side for ease on my strides and to inject a mod-chic style.
2.) The accessories - which gave more jazziness to the ensemble, was a conspicuous display of a well-coordinated in color and in material (f.y.i. color coherence is part of my fashion advocacy) trinkets that can sum up to femme elegance style (this is a self-declared personal style delineation) and that pink turban that shouted "boho" at its fineness.
3.) The shoes  - a semi-boot cut wedge sandal with ample fringe - will always complete a look, and the pair I donned did its job  seamlessly.  The fringe is a staple of Bohemian style.  Not to mention the fuchsia color of the footwear that perfectly coordinated with the dress and the rest of the accessories.

The most essential facet in my look, is my personal fashion advocacy - see HERE -, which on a daily basis (when not in uniforms) is being carried through, of Color Coherence / Color Coordination and Elegant Experimentation.
