And then one day you just appear

I watched Doctor Strange last night, and as is tradition every time I watch a Marvel movie, I wore my Stark Industries hoodie from The Perfect White Shirt. I wrote about it last year when I watched Ant-Man, talking about its thickness (or thinness).

I like songs about drifters

The rule in dressing for flight days is to choose comfort over style, but preferably come up with something that has both. It’s so very to easy to want to look nice and impressive in an airport, but the truth is that you’ll spend lots of time walking or sitting and waiting or standing in… Continue reading I like songs about drifters

They’re going to better places

I had the big chop. I was nervous. I wasn’t sure if a pixie cut would suit me. My salon would style it, of course, but I had no idea if I could pull it off on a daily basis. Plus, I was comfortable with braiding and curling and styling my long hair. I’ve always had long… Continue reading They’re going to better places

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’ll put a flower in your hair

To be completely honest, if I had a Rapunzel-ish dress—or a Flynn-esque vest, for that matter—I would’ve worn it, but I had to settle for this sort-of-flowy… Continue reading I’ll put a flower in your hair

We drew our own constellations

I spent two days—count ’em, TWO DAYS—to come up with this outfit. Mainly because of these two pieces: Trilby from Lucban, P75. I’ve always wanted a fedora, and when I saw this during the Pahiyas festival, I bought it at once. I didn’t notice that it’s a tad too small for me. I haven’t worn… Continue reading We drew our own constellations
