I dreamt of this outfit many times before actually wearing it. In my dreams, I was very shapely, I had really long legs, my hair was “done” and so was my make-up. I was also wearing teetering high heels and carrying an “it” bag, and The Sartorialist was snapping a photographh of me. Then I woke up and it was almost noon time, I had to work and work really hard, and I had less than 30 minutes to take a bath, comb my hair, and put on my clothes — and the cropped top was too short and awkward and the eyelet skirt was too tight and was not really the exact shape I imagined in my dreams. I also had to wear grandma heels because I need to walk fast to walk two blocks to the jeepney stop and walk faster to arrive only 30 minutes after my boyfriend at our designated meeting place. While walking towards the jeepney stop, I had to look around me in case Mr. Schumann was there and I would run fast if he’d see me. Have you seen To Rome with Love by Woody Allen? 😛
