SFF turns 1 today!
It’s been a year and as I look back at all the outfits I have worn the past year, I saw the slow changes in my outfits. It took awhile to decide on what specific outfit it is that I’d be featuring here for this specific occasion. At last, this outfit won me over. Since, I’m always told that I do dress up in costume-inspired outfits, then, why not do a costume-inspired one, from one of my favorite countries-Japan.
This Modern Kimono has been in my closet since November of last year. It was given to me by my brother as his pasalubong when he visited Japan. He knows how much I wanna see Japan and he knows how much fond I am of Kimonos. According to the store owner (from where he bought this), this is what women use there as blazers for work. It’s considered as something formal too.
Anyway, a lot has happened in a year! I wonder what will happen next or how I’ll look like next month, next year.
On an entirely different thought, I remember one thing that Rachel Zoe said on her show, “Fashion is a great way to express yourself without saying a word”. That being said, one of the principles I uphold in styling myself is, it doesn’t matter how much your outfit costs or if it has a name slapped on it, what matters is how you wear it and how it makes you feel.
Expensive does not equate style. Style is an extension of your personality and a reflection of your present state.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Days toward Valentine’s, a lot of things just started to happen to me. I have been telling my friends regarding recent events and it was just weirdly coincidental. They kept telling (as a joke), “Valentine’s kasi (It’s because of Valentine’s)”. We just laugh about it. But really, there’s something weird about this year’s Valentine’s Day. At least for me and a friend of mine.
It is the date season isn’t? And it’s that day when people’s romantic status are emphasized, celebrated or whatever it is that people do during Valentine’s.
Yes, that is a black heart. Coincidentally, the only origami that I know is a heart. This is made from the label of a liquor. It’s got a lot of folds and layers. It’s has different imprints that are not easily seen. It’s compact and seemingly small. It reveals different things when it unfolds itself. When unfolded, it is just a rectangle, a very simple rectangle.
This is a cute date dress huh? I got this from a friend. She wore this during their (her and her hubby) first year anniversary. With a little sewing here and there, it fit me! I like it. It’s sultry and sophisticated at the same time. Just enough for a dinner date.
Happy Valentine’s Day, my loves! Let’s all celebrate! Taken or not, dating or not, recently taken or recently single, whatever that status is, celebrate! Valentine’s Day is not exclusive for couples. Haha! 😛 Everyone’s got a heart, right?
