What I Wore Today: If I Made It To PFW 2011

Monday, October 31, 2011





Old news, been sick all week, but last Friday, I thought I felt a little bit better and tried to make an effort to at least catch the tail-end of Philippine Fashion Week. I got dressed and wore the outfit above which consisted of:



sheer polka top from Pink Manila, DIY skirt, Esprit belt, Pill footwear, Classic Coach bag

Minutes soon after dressing up, I began to feel the headache and sinus creep back up but I still managed to make it to the car and head towards SMX. It was a feeble attempt since I can't re-iterate enough how HORRIBLE the traffic was! Registration was at 7pm but at 7:15 I was still stuck in the car along Edsa-Guadalupe with what had developed into a splitting headache. I decided to turn back home and take a nap :(

I'm sick of being sick! It's been over a week!!! Belle and Helga told me they were withdrawal symptoms from quitting smoking and that her friend even got hospitalized for it. Ugh!


Last day to join the Paisley Clothing Giveaway!!!! WIN a giant shopper, shoes and chocolates! Just click on right rail Giveaway photo. Good Luck!!!!

Finally!

Posting from my phone again... Really liking this blogger app for iPhone :)

Anyway, finally found one of these rings that actually fit me! Been dying to get one for a long time but they're all so big, finally found my size, for cheap, in a little obscure shop called rebel gear somewhere in sm north, the shop really caught me by surprise. Lots of nice things inside. I plan to go back for some varsity jackets and miu miu inspired satchels :)

Btw, last 24 hours to join the paisley giveaway! Just click on photo at right rail to join. Good luck! :)

What I Wore Today: Neon Lapels











I have been on a "sinusitis roller coaster ride" since Sunday last week. It started
with a fever that developed into colds.

Colds that seem to have no plans of leaving me anytime soon. One day, I'd start to feel better, the next I'm back with a terrible headache and clogged sinuses. This cold made me miss ALL the Philippine Fashion Week shows. Great timing huh? :(

So anyway, a few days ago, I had to muster up my strength and get dressed for a quick meeting in Krispy Kreme, this is what I wore: kids of bayo blazer, glamour studio striped shirt, dorothy perkins wide legged denim, forver21 wedges, Mikka Padua clutch (available through chicify, just click Chicify link on my right rail).

I'm not sure if it's just me but I feel like the weather lately is weird. It's not quite cold and yet not quite hot. Too cold for a t-shirt but too hot for longsleeves. I wonder what else is available in between? :)

What I Wore Today: Fall Hat + Brogues

Thursday, October 27, 2011









Still under the weather. I'm beginning to think that these are actually withdrawal symptoms. I haven't touched a cigarette in almost 2 weeks! :D
Here's what I've been feeling, first chills, then fever, then colds and a cough plus some bouts of light-headedness. Also a little emotional, although it could also be PMS since it's about that time of the month. Things just get a lot more complicated with women :P

Anyway...I'm not sure what possessed me to purchase this hat but I bought it along with my favorite suede skirt and my favorite aviator jacket recently at Forever 21. I already have a black hat, my old favorite Freddy Kreuger hat from Topman. I was really looking for a Pendleton because I realized that floppy hats don't really suit me that much because of my height. But I ended up going home with this. There weren't any Pendletons in sight. *sigh* Oh well, it's just a hat :)

Where you all off to for the holidays? I'm just staying in Manila and hoping it will be empty for the long weekends ahead. I just want to relax, take it slow and appreciate every single movement I make to make the days last longer. Lately, they just seem to fleet by without me noticing.

I missed another event today because of a work meeting, seems like it's been happening real often lately and I really feel like I'm missing out :( Hope I make it to this Friday and Saturday's shows at PFW.

Wednesday, October 26, 2011




Been sick since Sunday, no outfit shots :( I've just been posting old ones, I'm slowly running out but I found these in one of my folders taken a few weeks back during the storm when it was really cold. Wearing my ankle booties from Asian Vogue and an old cable knit sweater that I've had for many, many years :)

Planning to do several reviews on some new Laura Mercier products and Murad, how does that sound to you? Watch out for it :)

Blogger for iPhone app

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I just updated to ios 5 on my iPhone so I had to re-download my apps cause I didn't have them backed up, figures :p anyway, found this app in the process. It's the official blogspot app for iPhone, I'm testing it for the first time :)

Shoes To Watch Out For!

Yes, I have my Gcash wallet ready as I await the arrival of these gorgeous pairs coming soon to Asian Vogue this week!

So pretty, and the fact that I'm sure they're gonna be affordable as well has got me all excited. I can barely sit down! :P

What I Wore Today: Assets/Spanx

Monday, October 24, 2011










I know! That's a lot of pictures than I normal post but I just couldn't be bothered to sift through them all and I "double uploaded" some of them and didn't really feel like redoing it so there. :P Bear with me :)

Wearing Spanx/Assets footless tights/leggings that my Mamita brought home for me from the states. I honestly thought they were more opaque but I guess the lighting's dim in my house. Good thing I was wearing a really oversized sweater. Anyway, these Spanx leggings/tights are really awesome. They hold everything in and just give you an over-all streamlined shape. What I love most is that you don't get any of those nasty bulges above the garter line that most girdles give. Also extremely comfortable. It holds you in nicely but doesn't feel tight. I think every girl must invest in some of these. I have a nude one which covers the tummy antil the thigh area and this black one which covers the entire leg area and tummy. Definitely must-haves!

What I Wore Today: Sheer Leopard

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Wore this to watch "Next To Normal" several days ago. We caught their last show for the season which was beyond phenomenal. I couldn't find their current poster online, this was for the first premier, I think. In case they decide to do a repeat again, you must catch it. The storyline is amazing.
