The What.Ever Shot


We were taking pictures for the shop last Sunday, and I was wearing these jeans because most of the stuff I listed at the shop were tops. This tunic, which is already a dress on me, was at the bottom of the bag I brought. We decided to take a picture anyway. We thought the outfit was funny. I thought of wearing it around but my boyfriend wouldn't give me a cent for wearing it, so I ditched the jeans.

A friend of mine died last Saturday because of dengue. She was 22, no longer a child but too young to die. I was/am brokenhearted because she was an energy ball and I always enjoy her company especially when studying because she's very diligent. Her death was  unfortunate. So, let's all be very careful with mosquitoes and our health. Life is good, but it is also fleeting.

The 90s


The 90s is my favorite era. It was the time of Backstreet Boys, the Spice Girls, No Doubt, and Leonardo diCaprio. It was the time of Gimik and Diether Ocampo (ok, ok). It was the time of MTV. It was my favorite "fashion" era. Here I'm wearing something that reminded me of the 90s.

Am wearing:
tunic - vintage
cami - freeway
skirt - thrifted
shoes - thrifted

And They Were All Yellow

Your skin 
Oh yeah your skin and bones 
Turn into something beautiful 
D'you know you know I love you so 
You know I love you so 


Last Friday was a reason to celebrate and dress up a lil bit. I will have a chance to sit on the grass, and drink fruit soda, and eat an english scone. And I visited Forever 21 at SM Cebu, and was smiling happily because the goods were cheap(!!!). And my boyfriend and I ate at Cafe Laguna (my long time wish that he granted because there was a reason to celebrate). I wore this yellow vintage eyelet top that I posted for sale last year but was not sold and has been sitting idle in my "for sale" bin for a while. I also used my sister's yellow bag and adorned it with a cute-cute "balahibo" accessory.

Am wearing:
top - vintage
pants - thrifted, men's
flats - thrifted
bag - sister's
accessory - bazaar
necklace - gift
fruit soda - healthy options

Purol part 2


Yes, I wore the pair of shorts twice last week. Is that a crime? I'm just trying to save water (for washing) and money (for laundry). In these pictures, I just went to a nearby mall to ship items bought from the shop and buy toys for my grandmother's friend.

Am wearing:
top - sister's
shorts - thrifted
sandals - garage sale
bag - online shop
belt - thrifted

"Purol" that's what my Grandmother would call this style of shorts. Until I grew up to be a "lady" (that's when I was out of college), I was always wearing purol.. and hand-me-downs. I grew up envying my classmates and friends who'd wear really, really short shorts. I thought those short shorts were cool and sexy. I have a friend who's a professional runner and has a very good pair of legs -- muscled, strong, and lean -- and she'd always wear those really short shorts.  What do you think of purols? Fashionable? (I doubt) So-so? Or nothing and I-don't-care? :D

Am wearing:

Purol - thirfted, probably vintage
Top - thrifted
Sandals - garage sale
Bag - thrifted
Watch & bracelet - gift

Q&A: Wide-Legged Pants

Question: Anonymous asked where I bought the pair of wide-legged pants I wore here and here.

Answer: I forgot, sorry. But, for sure, I bought it from a thrift shop here in Cebu City.  When buying pants, I almost always go to the "sale" section of the thrift store because that's where the non-trendy pants are. When buying pants, it's better to bring a pair of high heels. Or take your measurements, especially the length, at home, and always, always bring tape measures with you.

P30 Skirt Worn a Thousand Times


I have a very bad habit of wearing the same thing over and over (I'm sure I'm not the only one who has that habit), but my mother really, really hates that habit. I have this pair of short pants made of the same material as my highschool uniform skirt, and I still wear it until today. My UP shirts, I wore them to death until my mother decided to give those shirts to my 8-year old nephew and gave almost all of my clothes and shoes to anyone and everyone. When I got home last summer, I had nothing to wear because all my clothes are gone.

That's why I never bring this skirt home. Because I am 100% sure this will be on the top of the pile that mother will throw or give away.

I bought this skirt when I graduated from college from a thrift store downtown for P30 (or P33.33 because it was 3 for P100). And I still wear the skirt today.  The fabric has started to fade, that's why I rarely wear the skirt these days. Too much washing will fade the colors. But I will wear this skirt until its seams fall apart.

Breaking Dawn 11.11.11


Today is Nov. 11, 2011. I don't remember who it was, but someone told me that when the clock strikes 11:11:11, you make a wish because that wish will come true. The instances I catch the clock at that time, I always wish for good health (ok, I won't lie. I also wish for a few pairs of shoes and thinner legs).  But then, I don't want to believe you only make a wish. I believe that people are successful because they make a wish, and work [hard, harder, hardest] to make that wish happen.

 The vampire movie is almost out in the cinemas, eh? I love Anne Rice and the Imortal series (oops), but I can't seem to love that series of vampire movies.  I just love the thought that the vampire guy glitters. It's so magical, like a fairy, a friend said. :D

Am wearing:
dress - circa 90s Anne Klein dress
slippers - hahahaha
and ribbon in my partly braided hair
