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!

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!

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!
Whaaat????? Hahahahahahahah! I know I haven’t been around in awhile, with the storms that passed here in the Philippines and all. But more than that, I prepared myself for my biggest day–yes! I just quit my job last Wednesday. Had a long talk with my boss but yesterday, it was finally official. Memos are out and I can now declare it.
I JUST QUIT MY JOB!
I know I made the right decision because I have never felt this good and happy the past few months. When I finally had my exit interview, I really felt happy and most of all, free.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved my job, I learned a lot, am friends with most of my officemates, will sorely miss them, yada-yada-yada. My officemate is probably right, “I will never find another office like this”. But the thing is, I felt so constrained and frustrated because it wasn’t enough or something. I needed to break free.
Just 3 more weeks and I’m out!
I have never felt so excited to go back to my roots. I will make my dreams and goals happen–freely.
I don’t want to delve in the details of the quitting day anymore. It’ll be too long to write. Haha. Anyway, I just felt that this outfit was perfect for the celebration. Totally opposite of the corporate considerations that I have to think of when dressing up for work. I felt like I was in College again — tank top, mini skirt… (oh, the days.. haha)
I am so ready to face the unemployed world and just take a break. I haven’t had a break since the Senior sem break (I worked straight out of College, just a day after Graduation. Hahahahah! Crazy, I know.)
Production, here I come! Oh, how I’ve missed you! I have so many plans right now, so many things that I want to do and I will make it happen!
By the way, I really, really like this necklace. 🙂 I have one in gold too. Will feature that soon.
*excited for November* Here I go! Wish me luck! See you around, loves!

First of all, I’d like to thank my sponsor, Kia, for giving me this wonderful dress. Hahahaha!
During one of our Rummage Sale, while I was helping Kia sort out her stuff, I could not believe she was throwing it out! So I rescued the dress and took it home with me. I immediately knew what to do with it.
It IS bigger but with just a little adjustments here and there, its size created such a poofy, poofy skirt silhoutte—which I really, really love!
It also feels and looks like one of those classic 80’s dresses which I think I saw my mom wear in one of our photos.
I love this dress!! Only goes to show that another person’s trash can be another person’s treasure. 😉
Pardon the abundant photos— I really enjoyed taking pics of this one. 🙂
