Little Sleep

Today was a busy day despite having to spend all day at the house! Even after sleeping late last night, I woke up at 7:30 this morning to finish unfinished work for two and a half hours. I then proceeded to take photos of the last batch of clothes to be uploaded this November. Then I proceeded to make an inventory of the clothes and did their pricing. After that, we had about two hours of photoshoot (our first batch). We will continue tomorrow. In the evening, I take measurements of all the remaining clothes. I am almost dead tire and is itching to drink a glass of Coca-Cola with lots of ice.

But I still have photos to upload. :)

Hope you had a good and fruitful Saturday.

Lucky Find: Velvet Ribbons

When I was a kid, my grandmother made me wear all the velvety dresses that my mother's younger cousin handed down. Everybody in town thought I was a pretty little girl. I thought the dresses were pretty stiff, itchy, and hot (my mother's cousin lives in the United States and I live in the Philippines!). Reminiscing those days, I realized I wouldn't hesitate to wear those outfits (only in bigger sizes of course!) if only to make my grandmother happy. :D

This black velvet bow the size of my palm will come the nearest to those childhood velvet outfits. I bought this bow, which was originally a hair clip, for P5. The clip was no longer functional so I ditched it. I can imagine a lot of outfits where this bow would be appropriate. And, I am also wearing this bow during this weekend's series of photoshoots for the shop's November uploads. :)

Me excited!

Tonight was reunion night. Not all night though. I started my night accompanying my sister in her IELTS exam at the Marco Polo hotel. Then we had dinner at The Outpost. Then my boyfriend and I joined my college classmates at Kalye 80's at Rahman St.

I was a bit tired already when we got to Kalye, and would have loved to chill with sister or boyfriend a bit longer at The Outpost as I had a rather long day at word, but it's good seeing my classmates I haven't seen in a long time. (I used the word "long" thrice in the sentence).

Now, I'm already very sleepy (!) but still managed to post this. Raarrr.

So, onto the outfit. The dress is thrifted and will probably be posted at the shop in December in time for the holiday season. It is in pale pink, made in cotton, with a subtle sheer. I love it because it is short and doesn't make me look frumpy and I love its chiffon sleeves. The jacket is also thrifted. It looks like a leather biker jacket, but is actually made of polyester and also has a sheer shimmer. The arm candy, though, is my favorite. I already told you about the scrunchies, and this is how I'd wear them at one point.


Bon week-end!
