What I Wore Today: Color Block Sunday

Monday, May 2, 2011

Such an eventful Sunday yesterday. Got so much to share with you!
Here's the more regular stuff: Went to Browhaus, Greenbelt to get my eyebrows re-sculpted because I've neglected them so much they've lost their shape. It hurt a little more this time, maybe because I let it grow out too much between visits. Love the finished results though.
Afterwards, we went around bit and I found the bag of my dreams! A 70's style shoulder bag with embossed leather :)

Have you tried the fries at Bon Chon? It's sooo good I tell ya! Make sure you ask for some spicy mayo dipping sauce.

Now to the more exciting events ( this all happened in a span of 2 hours)...
Went back home to pick up Dennis for Sunday mass and dinner. He felt like having Thai food so we drove over to Soms and realized they were closed on Sundays. So we made a detour and headed towards Thai Dara instead. Somewhere along Kalentong there was this crazed jeepney driver obviously high-strung on something who kept on cutting into our lane. He almost hit us a couple of times.

Near the corner of Kalentong, across JRC, we were supposed to make a right but two guys running after each other blocked our path. Good thing our horn malfunctioned so Dennis flashed his headlights instead to tell them to get out of the way. As he was doing this, I noticed something shiny in the other man's hand. It was a gun!!! And he was pointing at at this other guy that he had by the collar. They were both in civilian clothing. It was so rattling. I was so scared to hear a gunshot, good thing we were able to get away from that street before we could be witness to anything more severe.

After that very eventful drive, we finally got to Thai Dara which was way more packed than usual and noisy. While waiting for our orders to arrive. We noticed loud crying that sounded like it was coming from a grown man. It was but this man apparently had something like a really bad case of ADHD or autism. He was huge and my daughter started to get really bothered with the loud crying. I was scared that his tantrums would worsen because he was sitting right behind us and he was a really big person, like 4 times my size. Good thing he calmed down after awhile and we all got to enjoy our meal in peace.

WHEW! Anyway, this is what I wore the entire day:
Another colorblock ensemble. I tend to shy away from color-blocking because although I love the way the colors look in photos, wearing all that color at the same time sometimes makes me feel like a paint color palette. However, I feel quite comfortable with the "mini-color-blocking" I did with this outfit. Just dark jeans and colorful accessories. It's a little bit cheating, is it? But I think it gets the job done.

It's Monday again...hope you all have a good, relaxed work week ahead. :)

LIVE GREEN.

if you come to cebu, you should really dine in simply j. it's a showroom/novely shop and has a resto at the back. everything's for sale in simply j's.

if my work allows, i'd be in manila for the world cup pre-qualifier this june and i'm 100% sure for july to watch incubus and 30 secs to mars. haha! we can surely meet and i hope may money pa ako for shopping after all the money spent on the concert tickets. mamumulubi talaga ako. :D

Camille said...

look at you! so wonderfully dressed in color blocking! love the color scheme!

Jasmin said...

Oh dear, good that you were inside a protecting car :/ Poor thing that the streets in the Philippines are quite dangerous...

I know Greenbelt as a huge shopping complex but i have not been there. For some reason i did not get where exactly it is located (is it in Malati?). Maybe i will be there this year ^^.

Hazel said...

woah that was such an eventful (and creepy) day you had! Luckily, no harm was done to you and your family :) But I feel sorry for the victim!

anyway, love the pink and blue combo :) and i'd like to see the bag you bought! :D

Khlaren said...

Oh my that's scary!! I had a similar experience once. I was with my family and we saw this two men running and the other one was wounded and the knife wasn't removed from his abdomen as he was running! Good thing we were in the car and just passed by them!

Hope that never happens again! :)

Bonnie said...

ohmygosh. You had quite the eventful day! I'm glad that you guys are okay. It is scary to witness such intense things, especially such as the guy holding a gun. I mean, holy crap. That's freaky deaky.
At least you looked cute all day!

indeed, a very eventful sunday for you. I'm happy you were able to end the day safe and with a good meal with the family!

I personally love color blocking...before I was miss matchy-matchy but eventually, I got the hang of contrasting prints and competing BRIGHT colors :) I just love how it seems non-scripted. I feel 'cool' also! haha...if that even makes sense... :D
