what you love is more than you can afford

Yellow and red shirt, Red Girl, Robinsons Galleria, P250. Black jeans, JackSon, Circle C, P250. InStyle Clogs, P400.

Today we arrived in BAGUIO! Yey! This is one place I absolutely love, but have only visited so few times. I can’t afford to go there with my own money yet because I don’t actually have a travel budget. All my leisure money goes to music, movies and food. Hehe. I really need to include travel in there.

ANYWAY. On to my clothes. I know I said in my previous post that I only had very few yellow shirts, yes? Well, this is one of them. I bought it in Robinsons Galleria, in one of those temporary stalls in the lobby. The shirt has a red vest thingy on it, which makes it fun because I don’t have vests in my closet anymore. Do you think I should try vests on again?

About the photo
Like I said, Baguio. My brother took this shot for me while we were waiting for our lunch in Wood Nymph, an authentic Korean restaurant–and I say authentic because all the customers were Koreans! This was high noon, thus my weird, trying-not-to-squint face.

oh what a thing to do

DSC01217 copyOne Life to Live shirt, Quadro, P150.

This shirt by Quadro is one of my very few yellow shirts. Yellow doesn’t suit me well, being a Winter and all, but this shade is just right, methinks. Bought it for 150 when our church had a One Life to Live series.

Tonight I managed to squeeze in a shoot while doodling on my planner. Hehe. Writing on my planner while wearing a shirt about life. Yey, yes?

About the photo
Propped my cameraphone on my bag. This was around 7PM, and it was dark out already, of course. Thus the graininess of the photo. Bleh.

Title from “Yellow” by Coldplay

Beatles+Wii = this shirt.

Black shirt, Trapik Jeans USA. Christmas gift from my brother. He bought it in Divisoria. A place I will probably never go to voluntarily. Or, if I ever do, I probably would have done it after taking 10 steadying breaths and reciting, “You’re going to be okay, you’re going to be okay, you’re going to be okay…” many, many, manymanymany times.

On a side note: Our topic in this year’s prayer and fasting is WISDOM. Heeheehee.

About the photo
The noonday sunlight in my room looks nice, doesn’t it? 😀 I just slightly adjusted the contrast to make my wall less blue.

and the sun always shines down on your shoes

Chips Ahoy tee, P100. JackSon jeans, P250. InStyle Clogs, P400. Blue beaded bracelet, P50. All from Circle C.

For today’s family reunion, I went with my signature color, BLUE! That right there is my new favorite t-shirt. Not only is it blue, but it also bears the logo of one of my favorite snacks ever since I was a kid. Chips Ahoy! is LOVE.

That pair of clogs are just…ARGH. I love them. They’re wood, but oh so comfortable.  Compared to the other sandals displayed with them, they were a bit pricey — originally tagged P500, but I was able to get the salesgirl to bring it down to 400 — but it was well worth it! I mean, just look at those heels, man!

Time to shop for the everything I’m wearing in this photo (plus more): 40 minutes. Circle C is awesome for non-shoppers like me.

About the photo
Taken in my room using my Sony Ericsson W760i propped up on a desk and several books. Lighting provided by the morning sun. The pinkish hue was due to a pink scarf hung in my window as a substitute for a curtain.

I’ll be waiting in my cabin

…until you call for me.

Large black tee from a friend’s fundraiser, P150. Black JackSon skinny jeans from Circle C, P250. Black Ohrelle sandals from my mom’s shoe rack.

The star of this look (aside from the lighting and PINK FLOWERS!) are my new jeans. I bought them right before the end of 2009. Being a girl who relied on Bench and Jag and Bobson and other boutiques for jeans, finding well-fitting skinny jeans  was like finding gold. Well, at least that’s what it felt like to me, since, y’know, I’m not used to shopping yet and all.

I must also note that it’s been a while since I’ve worn black jeans. I usually wear blue ones.

Those are my mom’s Ohrelle sandals. I borrowed them for this photoshoot because they look nice. And I must also find a similar pair for myself.

About the photo
Taken in Balai Indang, Cavite. Jan 1, 2010.

I originally didn’t want to start 2010 (or this blog) with a sad-ish photo, but I liked this photo, and I think 2010 is going to be a year of waiting for me, in a way. It’s also going to be a year of action, but there are several things I’m waiting for.

PIIIIINK FLOWERRRRRR ATTACKKKKKKK!!!
