It was one Saturday that ended too soon. After being awake for 24 hours, I slept until early afternoon, ate a very big breakfast, watched some portions of UP at the suggestion of my sister, and went to Ayala to have a double date. It also rained very hard that day, but I think rains are blessings.
I’m wearing a vintage dress that reflects the colors of autumn. I love how lightweight the dress is, and the cute collar. The print looks like a graphic art or something. I wore the dress with sandals from Linea Italia and this faux-leather purse sold at Just Got Lucky Shop.
While I had fun and learned a lot during the two-day pop-up at Parkmall, it was very tiring. When I got home, I was sleeping like a log, snoring, and dreaming of a parade of the world’s most notorious criminals, a plane crash that happened in the south of Cebu, and the end of the world. I was happy with the sales, and the fact that I’ve given more than half of my cards to anyone, including cute and flirty dogs.
I’m wearing vintage polka dot neck-tie blouse underneath a thrifted chiffon dress, Juan shoes, thrifted beret, and Avon studs.
I think September will be a busy month, and I have no problem with that. So before I forget to update the Shop, I am listing the remaining items for sale at P100 and P200. There are still remaining vintage items posted at the sale albums. If you’re looking for a particular vintage item, maybe you’d find them there at low prices. For non-Cebu (but Philippines only) buyers, shipping fees will be shouldered by buyers and please check with us first for the area of delivery. For Cebu buyers, we can meet-up. 🙂
I am a happy exhibitor at Parkmall’s Vintage Week capping up with Grandparents’ Day on Sept. 9. Since the day they contacted me for a possible display of vintage outfits at their event, my excitement has never waned. Of course I love vintage, but more than that, I accepted because I am nostalgic, and I really, really love my grandparents and my memories of them are warm and securing and funny, at some times, and happy at most times. While I never got to wear nor keep my grandmother’s dresses (she gave them away), I am now keeping some of my mother’s and my aunts’ clothes. You see, trends only come and go, but style doesn’t fade. And that is evidently true with fashion and clothes.
What I wore when I visited the display last Tuesday (which, by the way, was the day heavy rains started to fall and the North Reclamation area was a mayhem with heavy traffic and flooding): cropped eyelet top, high-waist pants, sandals from Linea Italia, gifted bag from mother.
Here are my two displays:
The first display wears 50s-inspired outfit, and the other display wears Joan Holloway-inspired outfit. Vintage items are the dress, skirt, and the yellow pump shoes.
