It’s my birthday in the Philippines today, where most of the people I love is. I wish I didn’t have to have my birthday two months after I just left home. Though I do have friends and family here, it just doesn’t feel the same.

To kick off my birthday weekend, we went to They Abbey the other night and wore my new dress. These pictures don’t give this dress justice, the light feather painted print on it is ridiculous! I got it from Brigade LA, downtown. Small was already the smallest size available but I couldn’t resist the pastel colored feathers, so I just had it altered to fit.

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

what you know

[earrings: asos, studded top, snakeskin pants & cross bangle: romwe, bag: topshop, heels: zara]

I try to stay away from leggings or jeggings because I always end up only wearing them for travelling, so I get excited every time I get my hands on a pair of printed pants that are very comfortable. These snake skin pants are surprisingly very versatile. Perfect for a plain white shirt or colored blazer for the day and a sexy top for a night out.

The company I work for is opening a new store in Robinsons Calasiao. I had no idea what I got myself in to. I thought we we’re going to check out the place and the market and what not. So I went in my most comfortable but still presentable outfit. Little did I know we were going to the actual construction site. Haha. Woops?

This is the first time I’ve ever parted my hair in the middle and actually got away with it. A big square face leaves you little choice in the hair department 🙂

My grandma got me this bag, yup she does have good taste 😉 I’m so glad she didn’t get me one of those heavily monogrammed coach bags :p

I’m hoping you guys have a fun weekend!

Here’s one way you can wear print on print. Pink leopard print and multicolored stars, print on print…on print if you count my floral print sunglasses!

I’ve always wanted a star print dress or top a la Chanel. I got this star print dress which I wore as a skirt from Folded and Hung a few years ago, it’s a simple sundress with an empire cut. It looks way better as a skirt 🙂

Nars’ Schiap is my new favorite lipstick shade! You guys know how much I love a splash of pink here and there 🙂 It’s a few shades darker and more matte than MAC’s Pink Nouveau, it’s deliciously Barbie-like.

This bag is as old as me. My mom bought it at Rustan’s after I was born, or so she says. I’m very lucky my mom has really good taste and doesn’t buy expensive tacky things that are only good as it is on trend and become something you would never wear after one season.

These leather shorts are from an Ukay Ukay (thrift store) near my house, it was at the 8 for 100 pesos rack can you believe it???!!!! It just has a few tiny scratches in front but it’s so cuuute!! I will write a post about my purchases that day next time.
