OOTD DIARY: RED, BLUE AND BLACK

I instantly fell in love with the modern architecture of Casa da Música from the moment I laid eyes on it. The state-of-the-art building is Porto's major concert hall space which houses three orchestras. Coco and I got a chance to explore its various floors. Aside from the well-equipped orchestras, there is also a reasonably-priced café at the basement and a souvenir shop on the ground floor. You can also channel your inner rockstar by playing with different musical instruments at one of the sections of the spacious building. A complimentary wifi is also available for anybody's disposal! 

The futuristic design of the building reminded me of the epic sci-fi Star Wars trilogy. It has a striking resemblance to those gigantic AT-AT vehicles from Empire Strikes Back. Indeed, it is an exceptional backdrop to any futuristic editorials. My deconstructed Margiela jacket would have been the perfect outfit for my #ootd pictorial there. 

Since I traveled relatively light for this trip, I had to improvise with what I had. I picked out four items from my luggage and came up with a pretty simple ensemble. Veering away from my usual "all-black" comfort zone, I discreetly incorporated some muted colors such as red and blue to my wardrobe for a change.
