OUTFIT | One Direction

I’ve lived in Cebu City for many years now, and I am, admittedly, a laagan. I used to live in a neighborhood near Raintree Mall in Ramos St., and I used to frequent the arcade, which is why I was surprised that I haven’t been to this bridge connecting the second floor of the arcade. I found it funny that I wore almost the exact same top as the One Direction guy in the poster. Continue reading “OUTFIT | One Direction”

OUTFIT | Summer in December

D7K_0008

We had a team Christmas party at the beach. I’m not a beachbum, and I have to admit that when the sand is not the color of salt/sugar/flour, I have hesitations. I am spoiled by our island’s white sand beaches, which we can access for free. But that Christmas party was one of the best beach parties I attended, especially when we played slipper game! I know this is a belated post, but better late than never. 😛

I’m wearing thrifted hat adorned with thrifted polka dot scarf, thrifted linen blouse, my sister’s denim shorts, and LeDonne wedges.

OUTFIT | Champagne in the Rain

My boyfriend and I spent one Sunday having another double date. We (actually, only my boyfriend) took maternity shots of our friend, Nestie and Jay-R, and had lots of fun even with the heavy rain. Our first (but not our last) maternity shoot. 😛 I love having photoshoots with friends because I can play a dream role, and they allow me to play a dream role, and we all have fun while being productive.

OUTFIT | The Granny Blouse

While riding the jeepney to Ayala, and secretly glancing at the two Korean girls taking iPhone photos of the surroundings, I began to think of why I love white vintage tops that you can see being popularly worn by grandmothers. I recall my childhood as full of books and reading. I read children’s books with female heroines like The Little Women, The House in the Prairie series, Little Princess, Secret Garden, and Anne of Avonlea. I have limited imagination and would only imagine my favorite characters wearing white top and some kind of a skirt. So, I love white granny tops, and I have collected several of them, stored separately from my other clothes.

This top I’m wearing is a “new” one, one of the few things I bought during a massive thrifting adventure last Sunday with my friends. Their thrifting adventure was massive, while mine was just average because I only have P400 thrifting money. P400 wasn’t bad though because I score 2 dresses, 2 bathing suits, and 4 tops.

Come to think of it, this outfit is a thrifted outfit. My shorts, which look vintage but isn’t, is a thrift find, and so are the bag and shoes.

I’m wearing vintage top, thrifted shorts, thrifted bag, thrifted shoes, various bracelets and my sister’s old watch.

Vintage Floral Peplum and Thrifted Helmut Lang

From where I thrifted these pair of Vans sneakers and vintage Etienne Aigner bag, I also thrifted two other pairs of shoes: one of which was this pair of Helmut Lang strappy sandals. I was eyeing another pair of strappy sandals but unfortunately the pair was missing, so I settled for this Helmut Lang pair. It’s not bad, isn’t it? I paired the sandals with a vintage floral peplum top that I bought for P10 four years ago, a pair of old shorts (thrifted too, of course), and thrifted leather bag. Hi, how’s life treating you?

Happy Monday!
