Sundry Fashion Fusion

Posts Tagged ‘Aviators

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!

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!

This photo was taken by Elyoo last month. It was a random favor for a friend. Anyway, I really like the photo, hence, the post. Nothing much to say here, just that maybe, I realized that I was actually conscious that someone was taking my photo in front of strangers.

Oh, this was also the day that we discovered that a hamburger food chain’s burger was not made from 100% beef. Hahhahahahaha!

***Thank you, Els!!!*

Was there ever a time where your imagination was far more enticing than the current reality that you live in?

I think that there are moments in our lives that we feel like there must be something more to everything that we do. We channel aspirations and hopes in different ways.

Fashion is my channel. I feel like dressing up in different ways or dressing up in the way I feel allows me to touch that intangible world in my head.

I wore this feeling like a I was in a world that is free. Free from this stiff, corporate box that I live in for 9hours a day, 5-6 days a week.

It does help to bring out a part of that ideal world inside your head into the reality that you are in.

Bringing out part of your ideal world, sometimes, makes you move so that it’ll end up as your reality.

I have so many dreams and I want to make them all happen.

What are your dreams?

Lately, I have been grabbing all the opportunities that come my way. But most of them never push through. I’m wondering, how come? Or why?

I do believe in fate. So are these opportunities just trying to make me see something? But I’m really not meant for them? Or is there something better for me? Hmmm… really makes me think.

Anyway, although, it does make me think about things and myself, I do not allow it to bother me that much. Hey, the show must go on right?

ANYWAYYYYY, the dress was a gift. I’ve been meaning to wear it but I couldn’t find the right occassion up until yesterday. 🙂 love it 🙂

Dress: gift, Bangkok

Shoes: Gray peep toes, StellaLuna

Necklace: Flea Market

Sunglasses: Aviators from my brother

Jacket: Black blazer, Robinsons Dept Store

THEME: ANDROGYNY

There are some rare days, when I feel like I want to look androgenous. Very rare days. It kind of looks powerful and hot hehe.

Or maybe it was the weather? Since it was really raining hard the entire week last week… Hmm

Or is it my frustration to wear a tailored suit? (like those white ones at the Red Carpet)

Or maybe, I have been watching too much Bones, that my addiction (and crush) with a Special Agent is taking over me.. Hahahahahaha!

For whatever reason, I do love this look (and the attitude / feeling that comes with it–but not on a daily basis). It was like wearing a costume again. 🙂
