Find­ing that per­fect har­mo­nious blend of fem­i­nine touches with a mas­cu­line edge

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | GOING OUT - Emma Fraser

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.
