I still see a lot of people wear printed pants these days, so they’re probably still on trend. While I’m into floral tops and skirts and dresses, the last time I wore a floral-printed pant was when I was 10 years old (see middle picture). But I wanted to wear a printed pant, and a silky one, and a really comfortable one because I would be moving from one place to another in one day, so I wore this pair of printed, silk-like pajamas. I paired it with a thrifted DKNY bodysuit because the pants were garterized and I thought a bodysuit would be the perfect solution to avoid having my top untucked.
One rainy Saturday (it’s now always raining here), we had a maternity shoot with our lawyer friends, Chu-chu and Jerome at the Quest Hotel. While Chu-Chu was being prepped, my boyfriend and I scouted the area for possible good lighting. We got lost because we thought the swimming pool was at the topmost.
I’m wearing vintage top (also worn here), vintage-inspired sunnies, my Tita’s jeans, and slippers.
As an alternative to my trusted personal computer that I’ve been using for more than 5 years now, I use an MSI X320 laptop. When I travel and is compelled to work, I bring my laptop with me. Or when I have the urge to work outside, I bring my laptop with me. The laptop has crashed several times, thrice to be exact, and I don’t know if that means it needs to be replaced. While I know that the laptop, like any other gadget, will have an end to its lifespan, I haven’t been inlove with another laptop that will replace it. The MSI X320 is already decommissioned. The model was made to imitate Mac’s Air. While I could not compare the two because I haven’t used any Mac laptop yet, I really really love my MSI laptop because it’s thin, its minimal, and its not heavy. What I also love about it is, the MSI shop at SM-Cebu has excellent customer service.
I’m wearing vintage Carlisle silk shirt, thrifted men’s pants, thrifted flats, men’s watch, gifted earrings, and Bench summer bag.
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.
