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! 😀

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!

I remember having a conversation with a friend wherein he asked me if I wanted his Tita to buy me shoes as she was going to the US. I politely declined because I want to buy MY shoes. Not because I was territorial or anything but mainly, for me, the best part in buying shoes (or anything for that matter) was the experience of getting into the store, walking through all the racks picking out the things that tickle my taste buds, asking the sales person to get me the sizes and colors of the shoes that I desire, fitting them one by one and picking out the best pairs, falling in love with these pairs, hearing that register print my receipt, carrying the paper bags home, opening them and breaking them in.

We also talked about how some wear shoes that aren’t right, so these Principles of mine came out in the conversation.

SFF’s 10 Principles of Footwear

1. If it’s a size smaller or bigger, no matter how gorgeous it is, put it back and let it go.

2. If you can’t imagine an outfit existing inside your closet that will match it, DO NOT buy it.

3. Invest on classic pieces – it’ll be very much worth all the money you spent for it.

4. Don’t spend to much on seasonal or “trend” shoes, they will NEVER come back in the same way.

5. Don’t buy shoes you can barely walk in – rather than looking good, you end up looking, well, having a weird limp.

6. Always have a classic black pair and a nude one – these go with anything.

7. Never leave a pair unused for more than 3 months, it’ll be brittle and useless (and heart-breaking).

8. If it gets soiled, clean it IMMEDIATELY. But make sure you clean it the right way.

9. As much as possible, AVOID buying the last pair.

10. Clean out your shoe closet at least once a year. By “clean-out”, I mean, get rid of the pairs that you haven’t worn for more than 3 months.

That’s it so far. I bet this list can still go on. These are just my own basic principles for my shoes.


Shoes: Denim, stilleto pumps with beading, Syrup for People are People

The big project is over! Before I write about the luscious buffet I had last Friday, I’d just like to congratulate AP 24.07 for the release of Manghuhula. Also, thank you thank you for all those who supported us! 🙂

Anyway, I was invited to binge out on one of the biggest buffets here in Manila– Spiral Buffet at Sofitel. What to wear on such a delightful occassion?

1. Black: So you’ll always look thin even if you are sooo full. Hahah

2. For all the ladies out there, an A-line top or an empire one, to hide that bulging tummy when you’ve eaten almost everything the buffet has to offer. Hahaha!

I really, really loved the food at Spiral, Sofitel. What’s more is that I binged with my 2 great friends! The drive was worth it! I have never eaten that much since forver! And the dessert bar was just to die for!

Anyway, enough with the foodie. Hehe. I discovered a store (that’s apparently been here awhile already) called Tango. It’s a local store here in Manila that has 3 branches in Metro Manila. Anyway, their stuff is really, really great and with reasonable prices. I debuted it at the Spiral Buffet. Hehe. They don’t have a website just yet, though.

Oh, and Annie, I really, really, really love this clutch that you gave me!!!! 😀

Wee!!!! I’m back from the hectic world called work. Haha!

Lately, I have been grabbing all the opportunities that come my way. But most of them never push through. I’m wondering, how come? Or why?

I do believe in fate. So are these opportunities just trying to make me see something? But I’m really not meant for them? Or is there something better for me? Hmmm… really makes me think.

Anyway, although, it does make me think about things and myself, I do not allow it to bother me that much. Hey, the show must go on right?

ANYWAYYYYY, the dress was a gift. I’ve been meaning to wear it but I couldn’t find the right occassion up until yesterday. 🙂 love it 🙂

Dress: gift, Bangkok

Last weekend was a whirlwind! Wore this last Saturday. My day started with a meeting then work (bought stuff at the mall), then had a date with Johnny Depp *insert drool here* and then ended the night with an all-out videoke night and a good talk with a very good friend.

I have posted this already more than 2 months ago. But well, it such a pretty dress that it deserves a 2nd post and an all new look.

Gosh, I don’t know where to start!

For one, i think my morning meeting went fairly good. I just hope I get a call back.

The afternoon was much more fun! Elyoo and I watched Public Enemies *insert drool here, again*. Story wasn’t much but all the Johnny Depp *drool once more* made up for it! WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT!. I now want a 30’s inspired ensemble.

The videoke night was sooo much fun as well! I love the songs! hahahaha! From Bohemian Rhapsody and What’s Up. Hahahahahaha! Really enjoyed this day! 🙂

As for this dress, it really is one of my favorite dresses! I just love how adding a couple of things or two would change the entire look. Can I safely say 50’s inspired? Not really sure on the era of this one. I think tights were more of an 80’s trend. Hmm.. what do you think? Thoughts? Anyone?

That was my saturday fun and really good. I think it’s all good now. Yep. It’s all good now.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been very, very busy. 😦 *sigh* Oh well, got new shoezies!

And YES, after my fling with VNC, which produced 9 pairs of shoes, it was Charles and Keith that saved me from a very important meeting.

It was stormy and I didn’t want any of my shoes to get soaked so I decided to wear slippers. And yet, I NEEDED a pair of heels! What’s a girl to do? BUY ONE!

I got drenched and rummaged through the mall (as I only had around 45 minutes to search for a pair). I went to all the usual brands- Cinderella, Dept. Stores, Mendrez, VNC, Le Donne, Celine, CMG, Aldo and yet, when it counted, it was still Charles and Keith which gave me a pair worth buying.

Isn’t it just adorable? I love the buckle, the color, the heels and everything about it.

*Charles & Keith is LOVE.*

*When it counted the most, Charles was there. 🙂 *
