Happy Valentine’s Day!
Days toward Valentine’s, a lot of things just started to happen to me. I have been telling my friends regarding recent events and it was just weirdly coincidental. They kept telling (as a joke), “Valentine’s kasi (It’s because of Valentine’s)”. We just laugh about it. But really, there’s something weird about this year’s Valentine’s Day. At least for me and a friend of mine.
It is the date season isn’t? And it’s that day when people’s romantic status are emphasized, celebrated or whatever it is that people do during Valentine’s.
Yes, that is a black heart. Coincidentally, the only origami that I know is a heart. This is made from the label of a liquor. It’s got a lot of folds and layers. It’s has different imprints that are not easily seen. It’s compact and seemingly small. It reveals different things when it unfolds itself. When unfolded, it is just a rectangle, a very simple rectangle.
This is a cute date dress huh? I got this from a friend. She wore this during their (her and her hubby) first year anniversary. With a little sewing here and there, it fit me! I like it. It’s sultry and sophisticated at the same time. Just enough for a dinner date.
Happy Valentine’s Day, my loves! Let’s all celebrate! Taken or not, dating or not, recently taken or recently single, whatever that status is, celebrate! Valentine’s Day is not exclusive for couples. Haha! 😛 Everyone’s got a heart, right?

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!

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!

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. 🙂 *
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. 🙂

who cried a river and drowned the whole world! (haha, this has been in my head since yesterday. hehe)
Once a lady ventured into something unsure. She stood still and waited for everything to unfold.
She took a step forward and she took a step backward.
She saw, she heard, she smelled, she touched, she tasted.
She walked, she talked, experienced both the familiar and the unknown. She flew, she pranced, she danced, she sang.
It rained, it poured, it was sunny, it was humid.
She woke up and slept, laughed and wept.
She continued walking, talking, laughing, crying.
She bids you hello and she bids you farewell. Nope, she bids you, “See you around.”

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…
