Maglakbay sa simula

When I started this blog, I hated shopping, didn’t wear dresses unless I had to, wore nothing but Chuck Taylors, and thought stockings were only for the 80s. Around the same time, I was also wishing that I could muster what I needed to fulfill my high school dream to travel to Japan. (I really like Japanese… Continue reading Maglakbay sa simula

No rescuin’, she’s fine out there

When getting dressed, we have to only consider not just our personal style, but also our activities for the day, as well as the weather. Today,  I had to wear something for my appointment in a casual place,  and it had to feel cool for me to survive the humid weather,  but it also had… Continue reading No rescuin’, she’s fine out there

And what it all comes down to, my friends

…is that everything’s just fine, fine, fine – “Hand in My Pocket”, Alanis Morisette Purple vintage shirt, Circle C, P85. Tuesday uniform coat, office issue. Slacks, hand me down. Naturalizer shoes. Today I woke up to realize that most of my office clothes are still at the launderer’s. That left me to work with my… Continue reading And what it all comes down to, my friends

Again, Wednesday. It’s white and gray day at the office, which is a nice day to bring out the neutrals, and/or splash color on them. And since we’re still in the Valentine’s month, I chose to add red to my black and white combo. (Because I’ve never worn red on Valentine’s.) Everybody loves this coat.… Continue reading makes the land appear like a really old movie

Coat from our Monday uniform by Adi Velasquez. Black shirt from Kamiseta. Black slacks. Plastic crystal necklace from…er…I dunno. Mixed my monday uniform with…non-uniform clothes. Ended up looking like a teacher. Which wasn’t so bad. Except, I am NOT a teacher. My mom is a teacher, though. And I think she had a photo very… Continue reading You could be making the grade

but I keep you warm

Zara coat, somewhere in Spain. Jag jeans, P250. Clogs, InStyle clogs, P400. Crocheted beret, Baguio bangketa, P10.  Mother of pearl bracelet, Circle C, P100? I’ve been wanting a coat for the longest time. I’ve been wanting a trenchcoat, actually, just because it looks cool in John Woo movies. But I never got one, because, let’s… Continue reading but I keep you warm

Get up, I gotta go to work

This here is our Monday uniform. (Yes, I am a web programmer, and yes, we have a uniform. We’re all professional-like like that.) It’s my favorite one in the set, and I thought I’d get a photo wearing it before we start fitting for our new uniforms for 2010. Our tailor for this set was… Continue reading Get up, I gotta go to work
