Sundry Fashion Fusion

Posts Tagged ‘Gold

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!

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! 😀

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.

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…

Since I love the VNC Satin peeptoes, I was looking for another outfit to wear it with.

I have worn this top at numerous occassions but never thought that it would look totally different with a thin belt. 🙂 Only shows that we can always revamp a piece of clothing. Hehe.
