I hate shopping, that is known. But there are a few things that I actually like shopping for–one of them is scarves. I looooove scarves because you can add it into any outfit (provided that you’re in a climate that allows for scarves) in many ways (provided that you’re in a climate that allows for… Continue reading Three, six, nine

We were young when we heard you

Today I wore my grandmother’s blouse. I’m pretty sure she made it herself, because she made clothes for my mom and my aunts and uncles, and curtains and pillowcases for all of us. I remember a time when I would sit with her in her sewing room as she worked. Sometimes we talked –there was… Continue reading We were young when we heard you

I haven’t worn… Continue reading We drew our own constellations

True, I’ve worn a dress once last year just… Continue reading Everybody says time heals everything

There is a shirt that was made just in time for the Eraserheads Final Set. There were many shirts designed and printed for the event, but there was one that stood out for me. I bought it just in time for the concert, so, even though the neckline wasn’t quite…right for me, I wore it… Continue reading tinuruan mo ang puso ko na umibig ng tunay
