I spent my afternoon yesterday tutoring a 3rd year in Chemistry. Afterwards, I headed to SM North Edsa. I was looking for suspenders as an alternative to a belt for these pants I bought which are SUPER LOOSE. No, I didn't lose weight (I wish though!) but rather, I made a mistake buying my size, when the pants were actually stretchable. So I ended up with pants 2 sizes bigger than me.
RULE OF THUMB/ NOTE TO SELF: IF IT'S STRETCHABLE, GET IT TWO SIZES SMALLER.
So anyway, I tried on the suspenders (which I was gonna pair with a straw fedora, a plain black shirt and espadrilles) but I looked stupid in them. I remember my grandfather used to wear them. Now, I don't know anyone who does. I was trying to resurrect a trend. hihi :)
So anyway, I went to the ladies' department to look for a belt. Tough luck on that! I couldn't find any to my liking (at the same time, one that would fit). Dejected, I went to the shoe department. The first thing I saw was
Yes. They were PEEPTOE BOOTIES at 50% off! (they now cost 600php only)
sadly, they didn't have them in my size.
So anyway, I took photos of the shoes I found to my liking
Red Soles like Loubs
in love with the black ones! but they are at the regular price. :(
These are clog-loafers in camel, I think it's called. I absolutely love them!
They are not too high and they have a thick heel so it's not hard for me to walk in them.
They look good with my folded jeans as well, don't you think? :)
more studded booties <3
these nude shoes remind me of Michelle Williams' dress for this year's Golden Globes :)
I also loved the color of these pumps. They match my nails! :)
I went to the accessories department also, and tried out stuff.
I am loving hats! They add an extra pizzazz to your outfit!
- Below is me, channeling my inner Avril. I tried on this necktie. There was also a bow (not headband bow BTW), like what Blair used to wear on Gossip Girl. I couldn't take a pic of it though cause my hand covered the bow.
Gorge ring with a gorge price as well.
I am not open to paying 300 for this ring. I can buy a top with that!
Necklaces with spikes. They're quite edgy, especially with a plain top.
You can also wear them with your LBD.
I took a photo of this "Kipling" pouch. Well that's because I have a Kipling bag in the same print.
And I used to think it was an ugly print.
Flower pony-holder. It's so easy to make with scrap cloth.
But doesn't it remind you of Forever 21?
This costs 79php
and a beret with a studded peace design.
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend because today's the only day I get to rest! I played make-up artist/creative director to a shoot last Saturday, then I taught yesterday. I'm still tired, but it's all good. It feels nice to be productive!
Sorry SM, if you have a no-photo taking policy.
And I must say, my Samsung Champ takes good enough photos. :)
