Thrift Shopping

I remember my classmates freaking out when I told how much this whole outfit costs. They said they never would have guessed that absolutely everything I’m wearing here is a product of my thrift shopping! You see I really love dressing up and I like my closet to have variety. As much as I would like to run to the mall and buy as much clothes that I want, I’m afraid I don’t have enough money for that. Also, it would be impractical to keep on buying clothes and stack them in your closet for a really long time. As a solution, I thrift shop! You would be surprised that there are actually a lot of stores in the mall that sell very affordable clothes with decent quality. Patience is the key!

The plain white shirt I’m wearing here is from Tiendesitas. Basic white tops are a must since you can pair them with almost anything and be sure that it will always work out! I tend to overuse this shirt especially on lazy casual outfits to school or to a spontaneous hang outs with friends. I got it for 100 pesos. Good deal isn’t it?

This pair of shorts is from Greenhills. I bought it for only 150 pesos. I think it went down from 300 since I bought a lot more from that shop. Haha. The snakeskin necklace is from one of my Divisoria trips with my sister. It costs 50 pesos.

Meanwhile, this pair of shoes is from SM. I don’t know what they call them but they’re the ones with the “2 for 399” promo.

The shades are a little more expensive though. They’re from Sunnies Studios (previously called Sunnies by Charlie), for 499. But of course you can opt to buy more affordable sunnies but I personally go for the good quality ones since I don’t really buy sunnies all the time.

You see, fashion doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s just about finding the right places to buy.

Birthday OOTD

I was rushing a bit when these photos were taken and both my dad and my ate had little to no experience in taking outfit shots. Well, at least I have a few decent photos.

Unfortunately, the photos weren’t able to capture the details of the dress, more importantly, the back detail. This dress from Nafnaf is actually a few sizes bigger than my actual size. But you know that time when you see a pretty dress hanging on one of the racks and you just instantly imagine yourself wearing it? Yep, that’s it. I was told that this dress is actually from their 2013 collection and it’s the last piece remaining. I just couldn’t imagine leaving the store without it so even if it isn’t my size, I still bought it.

Because I don’t have a full-body shot, here is a close-up shot of my shoes. This is a gift from an aunt who happens to be as kikay as me. Although it isn’t the original Valentino shoes (which costs more than P30k), I must say that it is actually a very good replica.

You Can't Sit With Us

This is my second mean girls-related post. You can read about the first one here. 4 from our block, including me, have this shirt. Which of the mean girls do you think I am?

It was a Wednesday when all 4 of us decided to wear this shirt. But because the shirt isn’t pink, we agreed to wear something pink instead. In my case, I wore a bright pink belt and kept all others neutral for emphasis.

This is also my first shoot of the year where I wore my new favorite pair of shoes. Notice how white they were in this photo? I wish I could keep them like this forever 😦

 

Saving Piece

I realised that I haven’t posted in a looong time and since I’m officially on summer break, I’ll try as much as I can to update my blog. As for the title, I’m still working on my creativity so hopefully I’ll be able to come up with more relevant (and cute) titles on my next posts.

Anyway, these photos were taken during the last day of class for 2013. Also, this is the last day we (my friend Glenn and I) were able to shoot in this area before we were informed that we need a certain permit from the office to “use” the place (aww).

I’m wearing a sleeveless dress that’s v-neck both in front and at the back. I wasn’t really comfortable with this because the front looks very similar with the back that there is almost no distinction between them. However, I wouldn’t want to waste a pretty dress with a pretty print so I figured it would need a little something over it to hide the part making it awkward, at least in my perspective.

Tada!! This blouse saved the dress (and the day). Because I still want to emphasize the print of the dress, I only closed the topmost button of the cover-up blouse to cover the neckline. I also wore a pair of sneakers with my usual wild and mild theme to balance the look.
