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!

As I was looking for something to wear last week, I stumbled upon this old bolero which I bought Christmas of 2007. I have absolutely forgotten that I had this and how much I loved it!
There was time that I would absolutely wear this with all the tank tops I ever had. For me, it isn’t the usual bolero that had capped sleeves and those that emmulate the typical polo-bolero.
More than that, I am a big fan of knitted fabric, so Iguess I really, really love this bolero so much!
I think I fll in love with the fabric and the sleeves. I love how it flows through my arms. Hmm… Gotta check the closet for some more forgotten items. 🙂

Actually, the weather is just confusing! Last week, when I woke up, the sun was suddenly gone and weather reports announced a storm passing by Manila and North Luzon. But then there were moments that were sunny. Confusing, confusing weather.
I do love the rainy weather (too) because it gives me a reason to pull-out the trenches and layer, layer, layer. Had I worn this with boots and a black trench, I could claim it as channeling Kate Moss, but for this one, maybe, just a semi-Kate Moss.
The glasses on the other hand is very old. It was actually my dad’s which we just found by accident in my mom’s drawer as she was cleaning up the entire house. Yes, my father was as thin as I was and so the glasses fit me perfectly.
I saw photos of my mom and dad when they were about college students and man, they were both so thin! My mom was actually thinner than I was!
*Kudos to Dad for owning such a wonderful pair of aviators!*
It’s such a great find isn’t it? I wonder how it looked like when my father wore it because I remember my mom’s face lighting up and transforming into this dreamy state when she saw this pair (after a loooong time now). Haha.

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.

I know. I know. It is soooo hot! So, layering is out of the question! But, I still found this outfit cool enough for summer and okay enough for work. Hehe. (Work, because we can wear whatever here! Weee!)
Layered and backless. In concept, contradictory. In execution, it’s a fusion.
Oh, and I love this necklace!!

If there’s something as safe as the tiny black dress staple, it’s the plain, white polo. Although, now, with a fashion environment that’s so fluid–you can work up the white polo. White polos are a favorite staple piece of mine. I think I have a lot of these in my closet… Hmm…

Yep. Gahd. It’s been so freakin’ hot lately! Time to bring out the tube tops, sun dresses and shorts! But I can’t wear shorts at work. Hehe Good thing, we’re not “corporate” and I can wear anything except shorts!
And since all the shoes are out, time to wear them don’t yah think?
