You know how most "clean up your closet" guides tell you to get rid of anything you haven worn in 6 months or so? Before you start throwing things out, STOP!
If I followed that to a tee then I wouldn't have this Filip+Inna for Bayo jacket in my possession anymore. (And that would be a total tragedy! hahaha) But yes, seriously.
Of all local designer collaborations done, I personally feel that this is the most important.
Filip+Inna's mission is to preserve and bring highlight to the exquisite weaves of our local tribes. That and the fact that her pieces are quite expensive and pretty hard to come by are some of the main reasons why I am never letting go of this jacket.
I first bought this during the launch held 2 years ago and it stayed in my closet with tags and everything until a couple of days ago when I finally found the inspiration to wear it to the Vaseline #SeizeTheSummer event.
I still can't believe it took me close to 2 years!
That's the great thing about pieces like this, wear them today, yesterday or 20 years from now and they're still gonna look good.

For fairly new readers, did you know that I always used to dress boho in my early outfit posts?
I used to love it (I actually still do, just need to slowly ease myself back into it again). I just stopped when I had a salon nightmare and had to chop all of my hair of. After that, I started experimenting with wild colors: blue hair, pink hair, purple hair, etc. I don't know what I was thinking but I'm glad I tried it and finally got it out of my system!
More about the outfit...
Remember how I wore this dress the first time and just explained how else I would do it in this POST?
This is it. ☺
Still can't believe how a P350 dress can be so versatile...just like what Kitchie Nadal's friend said: "Sometimes it's about the woman, not the dress." Hahahahaha (naks lang :P)
