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!

Have you ever placed yourself in situation wherein you just realize, “What the hell am I doing here?”
I have. Haha.
I went there, feeling oh so confident. I wasn’t really humiliated. But it was just a pair of shoes that wasn’t really the right fit for me.
It was just me seeing that, I was not meant to be there or at the very least I just didn’t belong there. When I was able to get myself out of the situation, I just found it to be plain funny! I mean, it was my fault anyway, I went there thinking I could actually pull-it off. But after a few tests, I heard myself saying, “What the hell am I doing here?” Hahahaha!
I was able to find my graceful exit anyway. Hehe. And what the hell right? After everything, I just said “Oh well!”, and shopped the day away! Hahaha!
At least, I was still wearing something fabulous! Hahahaahah! Oh, why am I so giddy?! Hehe.

Lately, I find myself going back to specific eras for fashion themes. When I open my closet, pieces like this dress would stand out because it looks like it came from a specific era.
Or I would find plain, modern dresses and be able to twist it into something more retro. This is me being costume-y again. Haha. I really think I wear clothes like a costume. Haha.
Hmmm.. I really think I’m into headbands lately. But I haven’t made the debut of wearing a headband here at the office. Haha. Maybe, if I have more time in the morning.
Hmm… I wish I can find something for a 1920’s look! Haha.
Glamorous, Glamorous, Glamorous.
I really like the glammed-up fashion statements of all the eras that have come and gone.

who cried a river and drowned the whole world! (haha, this has been in my head since yesterday. hehe)
Once a lady ventured into something unsure. She stood still and waited for everything to unfold.
She took a step forward and she took a step backward.
She saw, she heard, she smelled, she touched, she tasted.
She walked, she talked, experienced both the familiar and the unknown. She flew, she pranced, she danced, she sang.
It rained, it poured, it was sunny, it was humid.
She woke up and slept, laughed and wept.
She continued walking, talking, laughing, crying.
She bids you hello and she bids you farewell. Nope, she bids you, “See you around.”

Forgive the pics, I took this in a different time of the day. And I was hurrying the editing (I fell asleep hehe. I am actually a little giddy while writing this down).
When I was told by my officemates, that I looked Roman-ish when I wore this, I thought, moods do influence the way I dress, I didn’t realize that sometimes, I do wear stuff in a theme– like a costume of some sort.
I do love costume parties! Oh, do I miss those days! I’d totally dress up in a specific theme or character. “Themed Dressing”, I guess, is part of my nature. Could it be the theatre background?
I do love costumes, conceptualizing them, looking for them, re-creating them. I guess when my emotions or mood are just to vague (or when I’m just pretty bored with my life, hehe), I do dress up in a “costume” and live in it for a day.
It IS fun! Clothes or rather our own fashion style/statement do influence how one walks, talks, and feels. Themed or Costume-y, I think we should just be able to determine, if it’s just inspired by a specific era or character OR when you’re already looking like a kid going to a Hallooween Ball?
The things we discover. hehe. Hmm… I wonder if I have stuff that can be Greek-inspired…

This is the second time that I wore this dress. Although, when I first wore it (at premiere), I paired it with brown belt, shoes and bag. Black works too! 🙂
It’s actually hard to wear it here in this country because the fabric is thick. But, oh well, I love it!
*Since the weather’s cool lately, I grabbed the opportunity and wore this dress.*
* Oops! *
* Dior eh? I wish!.*
During the premiere, I was asked, “Nice Dress, Dior?”. Hahaha! I wish!!! But thanks anyway. 😛

This has been in my closet since Christmas of last year. I bought for the print and yet I didn’t have the guts to wear it up until last week. It’s not something so edgy, it’s just a Maxi Dress. Nevertheless, it’s not something I would wear. It’s a first for me! 🙂
*It starts with innocence, a birth of a new Being…*
*And then it learns, it leaves, it wanders around, learning everything it could..*
*Then it’s done. And it rests again but never the same as what it was when it started. *
Clothes really make you feel different, doesn’t it?
