What I Wore Today: Go For Broke

Look at my face, doesn't my smile look painful today? I only have one pose/outfit photo for you today because I have a terrible migraine!
Remember yesterday I was talking about infusing more color into my wardrobe? Ha! I am rebelling against myself...and probably because I don't feel so well too, I wore all black! I am such an anarchist! haha
I love this giant elephant pendant. :)
Let me just say that I am already anticipating a great depletion in my bank account this year. Just visited Chuvaness blog, shoe store Call It Spring (similar to Aldo) will be opening in Robinson's Ermita, okay fairly exciting but I bring you ladies news that will make you squeal and forget your boyfriend's name for at least a minute....

Jeffrey Campbell is coming to MANILA!!! I was in SM Megamall today to get some tickets for a concert, had a little extra time on my hands afterwards so I decided to take a look around the department store to score me some colorful things. And guess what I found, tucked in a little corner with no sign just a little table display, is a Jeffrey Campbell plastic standee. Only a few pairs of shoes are on display, mostly flats. The real launching of all the fabulous sky-high JC shoes will happen this month! What date in particular I'm not sure. I just know that I plan to make myself present. Hence, zero savings, no more bank account but a closet brimming with footwear! Dreamy...

I only had about an hour to spare so I tried to make the most out of it since I am rarely in Megamall. I made a beeline to Forever21. I still find it overwhelming. I tried real hard this time to find something I liked, saw a pair of khaki's, some cute boots and really nice nude patent platform pumps. I don't really need another pair of boots so ixnay on that, I tried the pumps on, they were real pretty but they hurt real bad too. Can't imagine my feet in them for more than an hour. Took my khaki's and headed to the fitting room, my god, the line there gets really long. I had about 30 minutes left so i just left the pants behind and decided to go back to the dept. store.

I wanted some lace/printed stockings, Kate Torralba has a new line available, really cute designs in bright colors but not so much my personality and I couldn't be bothered to try on tights, maybe next time. I didn't find anything I liked.

So many wonderful things in SM! I definitely have to head back for at least half a day so I have time to really look around and try things on.

Much to my disappointment, this is all I brought home: Fanny Serrano eyelash curlers. They're real nice though, gets all my eyelashes in one go. I think I read somewhere that they're patterned after the Shu Uemura's. Definitely a great buy. I'm real happy with them.
My latest ebay acquisition:
My posts have been quite lengthy lately don't you think? I just keep on babbling and babbling...anyway, buh-bye. hope you all have a great day! :)
