It feels kinda awkward doing a fashion post with everything that's been happening around us recently but you know what they say, in order for life to go on, you must make the first move. I just hope that by this time, everyone who needs rescuing has already been rescued and that most of you are now reunited with your families.
Back to moving on and regular programming. Still make-up free since this is another outfit re-shoot I needed to take several days ago. I wore this outfit when I headed to Route 196 to celebrate a friend's birthday. Unbeknownst to me, there was also a charity event simultaneously happening for someone's baby daughter who needed bypass heart surgery. The Ronnies were playing that night for her benefit and you could contribute P100 pesos (or more) by singing a song with them onstage. Being a mom and frustrated rock vocalist, I happily obliged and sang 3 songs..."I wanna be sedated" by the Ramones which started off rocky cause I was really nervous but by the time the song ended, the crowd started asking for more. Woohoo, so I started the next lines of The Cure's Boys Don't Cry along with Julia Clarete then finished off my short but sweet set (:P) singing Missing you with the birthday girl and lead singer of The Ronnies. I only have this one photo right now that my friend took with his mobile but there's a lot more and a video that hasn't yet been uploaded. I might share on a different post.
Again, I hate being the bearer of bad news but 2 days later, "Ronnie" their band leader and keyboard-ist, passed away in his sleep. His remains are laid in Arlington Memorial for his wake. That area was extremely flooded and still is up to this day. I am hoping that his friends and family there are safe.
It really is quite numbing but the reality is that life must go on.
outfit: 7 year old military parka from Protest that is fraying at the ends ( :( ), forever 21 top, diy hi-slit maxi, topshop wedge sneakers
