WEAR IT OUT
Finding that perfect harmonious blend of feminine touches with a masculine edge
This week we meet Judy Wong, a freelance make-up artist based in Dublin. Judy is a ray of positivity and this shines through in her confidence with her look. We had a chat with her about owning your look and being happy in your own skin. Judy’s artistic eye is evident in the way she styles sparkly sequins with tailored pieces.
Tell us about your outfit ?
Top (Om Diva Boutique, Drury St). Ruth, the owner at Om Diva sold me this sparkly 1980s vintage dress made in India. It was ¤100 down to ¤30... I love this blue and silver sequined detail on the top, I feel like everyone needs a little sparkle. I feel very sassy in it.
Shorts ( Zara Henry St). I love the lace part. Haven’t worn it out much because it’s short short. Not willing to let my cheeks go on display but today I paired it with something sheer.
Skirt (BT2 Selected Femme Grafton St) It is a beautiful pleated sheer skirt I wear it over onsies and also with these shorts for a more softer statement look. Showing skin but not too much, I love how it’s sheerness creates a soft sexy appeal.
Waistcoat (M&S Grafton Street) Full length waist coat on sale for ¤40. I love strong layering items that travel well with casual and dressed up pieces. The fabric and quality is amazing.
Boots (Online) Knee-high black suede boots with a heel is super inspired by Juliet Roberts in Pretty Woman. I find these so rock and roll and empowering. I feel like I’m about to take over the world when I wear them.
Describe your personal style?
I used to be safe with clothes when I was a teen. but I have evolved from safe styling to extreme playful styling. Now I’m happy with my body and curves and in myself. I would descibe my personal style as the perfect harmonious blend of feminine touches with a masculine edge. I don’t want to look like anyone else but me when I walk down the street.
What upcoming event are you most looking forward to?
outreachmoldova.org are hosting an event at Trinity College Dublin. This is a charity that has evolved through generous donations from Irish people and has started to help orphans. I’m proud to be part of a great change and be moved by the humility and kindness of others. I’ve learnt a lot about myself and that’s why I’m excited about the event.
