Sundry Fashion Fusion

Posts Tagged ‘gladiator sandals

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!

Since this is what I wore to one of my most memorable Christmas Parties of this year (and since, I’ve been wanting a Greek inspired outfit for the longest time), I decided to post this as my Yuletide outfit. Or as Ancient Greece would have it, the Winter Solstice.

I’ve always loved Christmas, from the parties, reunions – awkward ones and the happy ones, gift-shopping, gift-giving and all that, oh-so-yummy food. This year’s Christmas seem to have more depth than the past Christmases that I’ve had, or am I just maturing? Or was it the roller-coaster ride year that is, 2009?

I must say, there were a lot of changes and trials this year and I am thankful for those who helped me and for surviving all of them. Needless to say, for what it’s worth, I am still thankful for everything. I know for a fact that I learned a lot.

Oh! This is one of the effects of the year ending. I get to recount everything that went good and bad the past year. So that when the new year comes, I am able to set new goals for myself.

To more great finds, great clothes, great eras, great themes, great shoes, to the year that has passed us and to a whole, new, roller-coaster 2010, CHEERS!

I now bid all of you a Great Yuletide Season and a Wonderful New Year! Thank you all and see you all next year! 😀

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!!!*

YOU!!! Baby!!!! Hahahaha!!! And so the consequences of the resignation have started. Sorry for being gone for more than a month! I have been adjusting to the new lifestyle and the lack of some things. Hehe.

And since I cannot shop until December comes… Let me frustrate you as well. I drool over the things I stumble upon the internet.

Websites are evil temptations! Haha!

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…

Last Saturday, I found myself wearing the same piece of clothing in different colors and different events. When I like a particular piece, I buy them in 2-3 colors. Hehe.

Anyway, I wore the white ensemble during the day as I set about my mall duties. 🙂 (ooh! and I was actually able to buy a cute little dress. But more on that on the next post).

When I got home, Rica called me up asking if we can have a girls night out clubbing. Being in a rush, I slipped into the black version of the dress.

So, we were meeting up at Kia’s pad, when I arrived there, I was stunned and confused as Matts revealed a cake and everybody sang me a happy birthday. Aww.  🙂 The party was a casino themed one because I REALLY like to go to a casino! Hehe. Poker. Chips and liquor slushies.

Snagged this photo from Kia:

Thanks so much guys!!! ❤
