July 2016 #OOTDS

Let’s a take a break from the travel posts (but I would still blog some more travel-related posts next week because I have some backlog stories to share), and talk about outfits! Haha.. I was (and still am) seriously considering converting this blog into a travel blog because travel-related posts seem to be the more popular posts. But I just can’t resist the temptation of posting outfit photos because outfit photos were the core and the backbone of this blog since its creation. I will resolve to publish only one #ootd post per month because, the truth is, I also don’t go out often. Continue reading “July 2016 #OOTDS”

OUTFIT | Throwbacks

I have been missing from this blog for more than five months.. Yes, life has taken me out from it, but that is not exactly the reason why I have been silent for a long time. The truth is, I got lost. I felt a mid-life crisis in my blogging life and felt like I was in a cross-road and I didn’t know where to go. I thought my blog, this blog, no longer had any direction and I felt I have somehow outgrown “thrifting” and my thrifting adventures. Continue reading “OUTFIT | Throwbacks”

La Vie en Rose

 

 

One hot summer afternoon, I was in the vicinity of the “pink house.” My cousin and I called it the “pink house” and I thought that if I had money, I would buy the house. Until the house opened to the public, and I had no money. I was looking for crepes but the restaurant opens only at 6:30. The boulangerie though is open all day so we ordered food there. La Vie Parisienne is a very popular place, especially for people who want to post pictures in Instagram. I loved the chocolate cake we ordered (P80 per slice) because it tasted like the super-moist brownies I used to bake in college. The coffee — Americano (P100) and Macchiato (P130) — was so-so, not spectacular. The deli sub had generous serving of pork, but I had to chew carefully because the bread was hard and I was afraid my false teeth would fall if I eat the sandwich hurriedly. We went there at 4PM, in the middle of summer, so it was probably a bad time, as I had difficulty relaxing because of the heat. Maybe we should come back on cooler months to enjoy the wine, and the crepes I was looking for.

I managed to insert an outfit post — this is to thank my grand-aunt of the clothes I received from her last Christmas. The sheer top (which had an open back) had sequined sleeves.

Name: La Vie Parisienne

Vintage, Jeans and Coffee

This is a #throwbackthursday #ootd, having been busy and preoccupied in my real life. In the once-a-year occasion of celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday, I also took the rare chance to wear my pair of jeans, paired with a vintage top, thrifted Salvatore Ferragamo flats, and gifted Charles & Keith bag.

#OOTD These Days

Life’s been busy and fun lately so entries in my blog has been scant. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t take the time to take pictures of #ootd or outfit of the day, except I was too lazy to upload and write. I’m still loving vintage, maybe even more so. I’m also taking time to wear clothes and use accessories given to me as gifts from family and friends. Continue reading “#OOTD These Days”
