Not in love with you quite yet

As a someone who hates shopping, you won’t see me jumping to buy the next big trend in clothing. I like to stay in the bounds of timeless clothing (except, of course, if they were souvenir shirts, or geek ones that had movie references.) When everybody started wearing printed leggings, I was so sure that they wouldn’t suit me.

I’m not as sure now. Continue reading →

oh yeah, I’m looking at the sun

oh yeah I'm looking at the sunShades, Punya. Blue blouseDEI. Lace tank. Jeans,  Jag. Brown leather bag, Celine. Necklace and bracelet from my mom’s dresser.

It’s looking to be an extremely hot summer, but thank goodness for the human invention called the sunglasses.

The other day I was at People are People looking at sunglasses and fell in love with a pair. It was rather pricey, though, so I put it down and decided to buy it next time (if it was still there). About an hour later as I was browsing the new stuff at Punya, I saw an almost identical pair… except the hue was blue instead of black, and it was half the price.

That’s the best “except” I’ve written in a while, yes? Yes! It fits nicely on my nosebridge, and my eyelashes don’t reach it.  Oh, thank God! That’s always been my problem with shades and glasses. The one down side of having long eyelashes 🙁

Needless to say, I bought the shades. It costs P150, in case anybody’s wondering.

Title from “Looking at the Sun”, Gramercy Arms. Such a happy, summer-y song.

Pink blouse, DEI. White camisole, Landmark. Jeans, HerBench. Wood bead necklace. Glass necklace, Punya. Blue cuff bracelet, Circle C. Bag, L’Oreal. Sandals, my mom’s closet. (She offered that I use her white sandals instead… I think I should have taken her up on that. Haha!)

Most of the items in this outfit have gone from my closet to my discard pile to my closet to my discard pile and back to my closet again.  While I was doing this year’s spring cleaning, I had decided to put that barely used pink blouse and that never used bag in my discard pile again.

Today I had to wear something cool and possibly airy to the Walkway in Fort Bonifacio, since, y’know, we’d be walking in the sun. I decided to try my hand again in the boyfriend jeans, seeing as my last one wasn’t entirely successful. I tried the white cami, too, which I haven’t worn in YEARS (I haven’t learned how to use plain white tops on my body type). And then my eyes fell on my discard pile and saw this pink blouse.  I threw it on, along with a couple of necklaces. And then I grabbed the sailor-looking bag.

Thank God I haven’t gotten rid of them! But don’t get me wrong: this isn’t to promote NOT discarding the stuff in your discard pile, guys. This post is to promote USING the stuff in your closet. Even old ones. Haha!

Needless to say, none of the items in this outfit will go to my discard pile in a looooooooong time.

Oh villains fear him

Oh villians fear himTetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy) t-shirt from that ukay beside Lolo Oboy’s, P280. Tank top from Baguio ukay, P30. Unbranded jeans from Circle C, P250. Necklace from Punya, P80. Watch from Tomato. Chucks.

And here it is. My Astro Boy shirt with the collar area chopped off to transform it from a little boy’s shirt to a Flashdance-y shirt. Yey!

The print says, “Atom is a super hero”. And then there’s that awesome holographic design.

As I was getting dressed, I tried to convince myself that the weather was nice, and it wasn’t scorching hot… seeing as I was to wear two layers of clothing when most girls are wearing thin sleeveless shirts the past few days. Either I really did convince myself properly, or the weather really was nice. Or maybe this whole combo isn’t hot at all. Oh, man, I wish it was that last one so I can wear this again soon!

So. My first t-shirt cutting project. Success? Yes? No?

Title from the 1980 Astro Boy opening theme. Personally I like the 1960 one better, but that… is beside the point of this post. Haha!

Have you heard the word is love
– “The Word”, The Beatles. From the Revolver album, 1965.

Tank top and jersey combo from Circle C, P300. Jag jeans. Chucks. Dog tag from the Febfair in LB manymany years ago. Watch from Tomato.

I’ve been wanting to do this look for a long, long, long time, but I couldn’t find a shirt like that that looked good on me. And I didn’t have a tank top. Until now. And, even better, I got them both as a combo. Wheeee!

Darn. Now I want to cut the neckline of some of my not-used-anymore shirts. Haha!

About the photo
I love shooting in UP Film Center at noon. The harsh lighting does wonders in this setting, for some reason. Must be the orange brick?
