Winter Wedding

One of my dearest friends, the best friend of my cousin, got married last Monday. The wedding was very sweet and romantic and it helped that the reception was decked in wintry decadence! The color theme was purple and blue, which matched the Christmas season. I was crying most of the time...probably the wedding where I cried the most. I really loved it that the newly-wed couples were enjoying and having a grand time and were not stressed or looked like they were forced to marry each other.

Onto my outfit:
Dress - bought online, P350
Stockings - P190
Shoes, Janeo, on sale, P800
Clutch - native banig bought 4yrs ago, P30

Wrap-around and A Good Education

In my last trip to the thrift stores, I scored several dresses, about 6, for P40 each. All the dresses were still in good condition and my favorite one was this dark blue wrap-around dress with white prints.

Wrap-around dresses are figure-flattering. They emphasize or give you the illusion of a well-proportioned waist and they hide big hips/thighs (like mine) if the skirt is a full circle skirt.

On the background is my elementary school. All my primary, secondary and tertiary years were spent in public schools but I never felt I was robbed of anything I was supposed to learn. I spent my elementary years in a public school in Siquijor, but by the time I went to Cebu for highschool at a state university highschool, my classmates thought I came from a private school because I spoke English very well. My teachers at the public schools were "old school" but very good and dedicated educators.

Anyway, my point is, I still believe in public schools. :)

One of the things I discovered, and obsessed with, this year were hats. They do not just add a little oomph to your outfit, they also protect you from sunlight, and serve as "cover-up" when you don't want people to know it's you.

Hat - Pierre Cardin, thrifted
Dress - thrifted
Bag - I love Philippines, P40

I'm happy I'm not immortal. I will be a year older, and a year happier. :)

P.S.: Constantly looking at the photos I posted made me realize I look horrific.
I look so plaster-white. Pardone.
