Hello, it's me
I was wondering if after all these years you'd still...

be interested in another outfit post...

:P

I just realized that I haven't done one in a long time when I have quite a few on file.

I'm sorry for...

taking it for granted...

it's just that I've been traveling so much...and working too...

and somewhere along the way, I lost my focus.

Okay, enough Adele. :P

Here's an ootd I shot last October after arriving from Malaysia.

Wow, how time flies.

STYLING TIP: This is when a crop top comes in handy. Sometimes, high-waist bottoms can feel restricting. Tucking in a shirt just adds to the pain and sometimes on bloated days, can actually make you appear bigger than you really are so fake the tiny waistline with a loose crop top instead. It falls just below the natural waist which gives the illusion of an hour glass figure!

Wearing a top by suiteblanco, skirt from stradivarius and these TOMS wedge sandals that I have been taking with me everywhere on all my trips. They're just so comfy and versatile. The best travel shoe that can pull off casual and semi -ormal.

Back here in Manila, they're forgiving enough to wear all day in the mall.

Also in pics, my Balenciaga which used to be white! Special thanks to Royal Restore for giving it new life in a less high maintenance color.

Hair by @BeachBornPH of course! Have you grabbed your own bottle of this awesome sea salt spray yet? If you haven't and want beach waves, get yours now for only P180 by sending a message to Viber no. 09271272330!

Okay, that's that, back to travel posts tomorrow. :)

I'd love to go to that garden. It looks amazing. My last visit to HongKong was years and years ago. I hope I get to visit this garden the next time I'm in the country.

Ayi Dela Cruz said...

The place is lovely. I shall add this in our list when we go to HK. I can't wait to travel with my kids.

Hello sis! this may be off topic but i remembered you asking people if you should keep your blog name or change it. I think Fashion Eggplant is a nice name.. May recall sya and it is actually one of the blogs I remember so well, kasi nga may dating! People associate fashion eggplant naman to your name, and if you change it, baka someone might take advantage of it and take it (isa ako sa makikipag agawan siguro hahaha).. So I'm voting for fashion eggplant! :)

reylen castro said...

Aww... we havent got a chance to tour HKG when we went there in 2007. We just followed the itinerary. We went there as a group. It's a company incentive for us actually. My dream is to go back with the family. Will bookmark this post.anyways, I'm following all your Soc Med accounts naman :) thanks for the tips :) Ms. Sarah! ♥

jared's mum said...

it is good to know that you can still visit beautiful places in Hong Kong even while traveling on a budget. I sure hope I can visit them all soon :)

MrsPCuyugan said...

Oh my goodness, I wish I had known about this place when we went to Hong Kong last year. So pretty!

Such a nice place to visit if you want some peace and quiet. I'll keep this place in mind if and when we finally get to visit Hongkong. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres
