For the Love of Stripes

(Forever 21 dress, Pill shoes)


Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been busy with work plus it is just too hot to wear something decent and blog acceptable (whatever that means!) I look like an "emotera" here, just too funny to not to post. Hahaha!

Went to the beach over the weekend for some R&R with our cousin and family friends.

1. Lounging at the cabana.
2. Pat wearing Forever 21 top, Zara shorts and pa-cute smile (Wuuuut!)
3. Nina wearing a Forever 21 romper and fake hair extensions (which sort of smelled. Hahaha!)
4. Hello from the top.
5. Meeeeeee! I'm wearing Forever 21 everything.
6. Pat with out cousin Vida at our Casita (hotel room) terrace and an incredible view. If you open the terrace door you hear the sound of the waves while you stay on the comfy bed. I almost did not go home if not for my mom nagging me to pack up. Hay.

As you may have noticed, we raided Forever 21 before going to the beach. I made a promise to myself to stay away from Forever 21 for awhile since I'm going broke and besides everyone seems to be wearing them ever since their Makati branch opened (excuses!) As if naman I can resist their cute clothes!

The problem with having your hair colored is that you don't actually know what you'll end up looking like. I mean, you have an idea, but when you see yourself after the dye job, you'd feel a little surprised/shocked/horrified. After all, how could you when all they show you is the little sample hair they have? This is probably the most blonde hair I've had and I really really like it. It just takes time getting used to, I still do a double take whenever I pass by a mirror because I barely recognize myself. Hahaha. Anyway, the tiger and Darth Vader ring are the ones I bought at the Coachella bazaar. I am a bit of a Star Wars geek and I love anything related to Star Wars (shirts, key chains... the works!). Check out http://bijouxdelou.com for more rings!

P.S. Kudos to Nina, my sister for the amazing photos.

Lunch Date

(top and skirt - Forever 21, shoes - CMG, bag - Mulberry, ring - asos, bracelets - SM, watch - vintage)


Had lunch last Saturday with my bestfriend from college for some gab session, shopping and people watching at Rockwell. We also stopped by the Coachella bazaar and I bought some rings which I will post soon. I don't have pictures of the bazaar because I didn't bring my camera but I did manage to take some outfit photos before I left home.

So anyway, this is the close-up picture of my bag. It has rose gold details and the leather is incredibly soft. My bestfriend was a bit hesitant/shocked with me buying a white bag at first because I initially wanted the oak one but I fell in love with the rose gold hardware and just found it too hard to resist. Besides, there's only a few people who have the white one (probably because they were also worried of ruining it's pure white glory) so I feel a little more special. In short, papansin lang ako. HARHAR!

Went to the Bruno Mars concert at Araneta with our mom and had a little too much fun with our glow sticks. We were trying to write letters or words in the hope of having it captured by the camera but our little point and shoot (a DSLR proved to be too heavy to take to a concert) can't seem to do it. Our mom had the best time (she's a really big fan of Bruno) and kept insisting on the way home that Bruno was tearful when he said his farewell to the audience because Bruno is really nice and grateful and all that. I'm still a little hazy on that fact because to me it just seemed like a drop of sweat from his forehead. HAHAHA. Of course I kept silent, why would I burst my mom's Bruno bubble? The concert was really good though, he's such a great performer and he really did seem nice (it's just the "tears" i'm doubtful to).

Happy weekend!

The Comeback Kid

(Top and pants - Zara, Shoes - Forever 21, Bag - Mulberry)


So after posts of shameless plugging, I am finally back with an outfit post. Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been busy dealing with a personal crisis (which is actually a long and boring story) but do not fret (I know you aren't really) because my life is sort of going back to normal so expect a more active blog. So anyway, since I've been gone I totally forgot to post about my new bag! My parents gave it to me as a birthday gift after my long speech on how it's an investment blah blah blah. I promise to have a better picture of it on our next post. If you're interested in buying your own (it's totally worth it) check out The Bag Lady they have a great collection of bags which they get from Europe.

BTW, who's going to the Bruno Mars concert this Friday? Me and my sisters are going with our mom. Funny story, it's actually my mom who's a huge fan of Bruno Mars and she bought us all tickets so she wouldn't feel weird going alone and being the only "mature" fan of Bruno. She's really excited she even bought a new outfit. HAHAHA!

Shoe Lust

Photobucket


I have been lusting over these Prada shoes for a while now and it didn't really help to see them in person at Greenbelt. I didn't even dare try them on because I'd probably do something insane like cry or run and steal them away. Oh, to have money and spend them all in shoes and clothes. The great blogger dream. P.S. The shoes cost P44,500. Donations anyone? LOL.

These shoes have been recently posted at Virtual Mae one of my favorite sites to visit (I visit almost everyday, I hope it doesn't make me look kind of pathetic) and I am so in love with these shoes right now. I am contemplating on buying it, but I'm saving some money for summer trips and other spontaneous cravings. What to do, what to do.
