Quick post of what I wore to a product launch today. I got this top from Tobi in white andย lavender, and I’ve been wearing it non stop ever since they arrived in the mail! Do you guys have any “feel good” items in your closet?P1090940

I’ve been looking for a pair of boyfriend jeans within my budget, with not much luck. Then I took a cue from, in my opinion Manila’s chicest fashion blogger, Kookie Buhain. Her advise was to look for a pair of skinny jeans in a bigger size. So I rummaged through my mom’s stack of old pants and found this pair (she wears a size 28, I’m a 26). Finalleh!!! I have a pair of boyfriend jeans!! Or should I say mommy-boyfriend-jeans!P1090035P1090019

queen of the gas station

Wore this to work the other day. These sandals are waaaay overused, I’m surprised they’re still in one piece.ย 

I’ve been so fond of clutches lately, I love that this clutch is very simple in just one understated color. The only striking detail it has is a chunky zipper on the middle and gold details. It works so well with piled on accessories or super minimal, monochromatic outfits.

My new iPod Touch finally arrived!!! I’m so glad they come in funky colors now! The green totally matches my outfit. Haha. Will post photos next time, taken from my iPod with its improved camera.

Hope you are all having a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

glitter pot

I found this dress at a local thriftstore, it had this hideous halter with velcro fastening. I couldn’t let it pass tho coz I love the three tone dripping glitter. I had it altered into a tube dress that now also doubles as a skirt! Isn’t it just kitschy??

[glasses: ronac art center, earrings: forever 21, shirt: thrifted, bag: topshop, mom shorts: thrifted, pyramid cuffs: red dot, stacked bangles: sugar kissed, retro gold watch: casio, flats: aldo]

I don’t even remember exactly what store I got these glasses from, but I bought them from one of the stores at Ronac’s 2nd floor. All I remember is the SA was a cutie who looked a little like a much cuter version of Loonie from FlipTop, if that makes any sense. Hahaha… I’m weird like that.

Lampe Aldo Flats…it is love.

I feel like a Sinulog dancer in these flats, and I mean that in a cool way!

Love these stacked bracelets from Sugar Kissed! This one is my favorite set from the current collection…

some things new, nothing borrowed, some are blue

What’s new in shoes:

Tribal wedges from FeetForAQueen

I’ve had my eye on these flats since last summer but I couldn’t fork out P4,000.00. On my recent short trip to Manila, I saw them on sale at Aldo. I can’t believe they still have this in my size!!! It’s meant to be…

Got these leopard wedges from Nasty Gal, didn’t even know it’s by Michael Antonio Studio til I saw it in actual… I can’t get enough of the plastic heel

Cute accessories from Sugar Kissed:

These are all from Sugar Kissed’s new collection. I love all the fun, girly colors! Ilocanas….Sugar Kissed will soon be available in Laoag so watch out ๐Ÿ™‚

My Boss took me to check out the Havaianas Pop Up Shop we had at Robinson’s I.N. yesterday.



Admit it, flip flops are a Filipina’s weakness, so why not pin your pairs to make it more original? Visit the Havaianas Pop Up Shop on September 12-18 at the Atrium area of Robinson’s Mall Ilocos Norte, and get complimentary pins for every pair purchased!
