If I were in your shoes, I would get confused too

If I were in your shoes, I would be happy at times and I would be sad at times too

If I were in your shoes, I would lash out too

If I were in your shoes, I would want to leave and stay at the same time too

If I were in your shoes, I would love and hate myself too

But I can never be in your shoes.

All I can do is imagine how you feel

All I can do is try to understand why you do the things that you do

All I can do is promise that when you return, you still have a family to go home to

and all I can do is pray and hope that you will get better soon.

Shoes: Heels, Charles and Keith

It is soooooo hot! Summer has landed! Time to keep those jackets in a box and bring out all the shorts and tank tops. I love summer as much as I love the rainy season. During summer I get to wear those tank tops and shorts the way they are supposed to be worn without feeling cold. No layers to hide ’em!

It’s time to hit the beach or the pool, whichever you choose. Another thing that I love about summer is that I get to ride boats going fabulous beaches where you can just slow down, think about nothing and relax underneath the sun or walk around the shoreline with just the moon and stars as your guide. An advantage of living in a tropical country, you can never run out of beaches to go to! So, since, I’ve been itching to leave and take a break, I thought I’d welcome summer with a navy-inspired outfit.

I can’t take my mind of the road trip, the wind, the sea, the sand and all that jazz. I can’t wait!!! Vacations are sort of an escape. More than the family vacation, I’m thinking of trying to travel alone this summer. I’ve never done that…Maybe, this year is the year to do it.

Just pack-up and go!

This past week, I met up with my old officemates and I must say, one thing I miss about working in retail (more than the free clothes) is wearing power outfits. Since, I left, my style changed because of my current job and just a whole lot of changes in my environment as well. There are just times when I miss the style side of the corporate world or just the plain and different attitude you have when you power dress.

I don’t know but masculine outfits really look sophisticated and sexy on a woman. Sorry for the bias, men. Haha. But don’t you just agree? It brings out an aggressive and confident attitude that says, “I mean business.” And sometimes, or well, more often than not, in the corporate world, you kind of need that confidence to be able to step up and be noticed.

I really want that white, tailored suit that they wear on the red carpet. It’s just hard to find one and well, wear it here on a normal day. I guess this is just a step closer in quenching that frustration of mine.

I had a great time seeing the world that I left behind. I felt no regrets at all. I just miss the people I used to work with. They’ve evolve into my friends. Well, not all. But you know what I mean. I hope we get to hang-out and just catch up more often.

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?

I am sorry for the long absence, I had ugly allergies and well, I’ve been doing a lot of things lately. Anyway, recent events made me realize things and really, really made me feel so happy!

It’s really those little things that make my heart flutter. This blog was created with no intention of anything. Friends just pushed me to show the outfits that I create or wear. I am no high-fashion-girl nor am I an expert at fashion. There are still a lot of things that I haven’t worn or even know. I just wear things as they come to my imagination. This blog’s first year anniversary is about to come! I cannot believe it. And I thank those who read it and wait for an entry.

Another new addition to my wardrobe is this skirt, given to me by a good friend as a gift.

Anywho, back to my musings. Fashion is all about influence and your own creativity. Although greatly influenced by the environment you walk on, the people you go out with and what’s available out there, your fashion is YOU and no one else’s.

For me, fashion is something personal and it reveals something about the person wearing it. So, when people compliment or as ask about the clothes that I wear, it really, really makes my heart flutter.

It feels good that people appreciate what I wear and moreover, I am overwhelmed by those that approach me telling me about references towards this blog and well, by the number of people that visit it. It’s not much but still, thank you so much.

In Filipino, the term is, “nakakataba ng puso”. I don’t really know the exact English translation of that. Sometimes, translating something loses its core meaning.

I look forward to my first year! Hope you do too!

Wow! What a mushy post!

So, my new wardrobe hunting begins…

One boring, Saturday afternoon, a friend invited me to go to Shang and shop. I told her that I would accompany her but I wouldn’t buy anything because I already splurged on a lot of things the previous week.

But what can I say? Girl Friend + Mall = Shopping. Nobody can really mess with that equation.

And… Can you actually resist these boots??

Yeah? Even if it was on sale??? Nah. Didn’t think so. Before my lifestyle changed, I would probably silently admire this and not buy it. But damn, now? I do wear it because I can and I have places to wear it to!

This is my new favorite pair of shoes. It’s just … love! Haha! This is definitely something unexpected for me! Yay! Thank you Els for pushing me to buy this! I wanna go back for the “almonide” one!!

Everything is just starting to sink in– the thing about changing your lifestyle and spinning it to the opposite direction is that, well, you gotta change almost everything. I realized that ever since I was out of the 8-5 job, I re-arranged the furniture at my pad and now, half of my clothes, I can’t seem to wear anymore. It’s not the size, nor the “fad” factor. It’s just that, it’s not applicable anymore. I find myself looking inside my closet and it seems empty because (almost) nothing in it is something I want to wear, anymore. Or I find myself pairing things that I would not even dare wear to work, because it’s too laid back.

I must say, it took awhile for me to see this or rather, accept it? Haha. I always have a hard time letting go of my clothes, my shoes and my bags. I guess the classic ones I keep, just in case.

It hit me recently, when after a long, long time, I found myself splurging for new and different clothes and the whole shebang. I need to save up and begin the year with new stuff that apply more to me or to my current lifestyle. The good thing, it’s an excuse to shop. Hahaha! The down side, well, we all know the down side.

By the way, I wore this 2-3 weeks ago, when 2 friends invited me to judge a play. Haha. I found the experience really nice. Being with students really, really, makes you feel like you’re one (again). It was my first time to judge a school play or any play for that matter. 😛

Oh, and I really love this top! I like the twist detail!

Happy New Year! To a great year and to new beginnings! Cheers!
