Amnotlying...True Story!


  • This black dress am wearing cost me about 80php or less than 2$ if my math is correct from my recent thrifting. Three days ago i have found this exact black dress from Trinoma Mall, The Ramp, specifically from the brand Missology. The price???? 3,800php (80$ more or less). SHOCK! It was the husband who saw the dress, he called me, and the first thing i did was of course look at the price and GASP!!! i guess seeing and knowing the price made me happy and a little proud. hihihihhi. In my whole life i haven't or will i buy a dress more than a thousand peso. The most expensive thing in my closet is my wedding gown. I just hope ill have a daughter to pass it on. Thrifting is just a marvelous thing, a gift from the mighty one for a frugal like me. I remember a month ago when i saw this dress on my usual "ukay" trip it was love at first sight. I don't know why people didn't notice this dress. Well i guess being in the right place and on the right time is so generic to hear now, but that day the whole universe was on my favor.
  • Am not much of a watch wearer. I don't buy watch, don't wear one, unless it is right in front or my face. All those watches are dead. Kaput! No batteries. But id like to keep them cos they're cute and my mom gave them. Thanks Mom, now they're good for bracelets. I mean, people won't even notice that they are in fact watches. I am probably the only person who wore all my watches the same time that day, but has no sense of time at all. Ask me what time it is, am sure to answer back "probably 3". It's always probably.
It is so nice to post again. I am, for the mean time a very very very busy busy girl. So much to do, so little time. Have a great day! I hope everyone's doing A-okay.

I think it's adorable that you wore all those watches cause your mom gave them to you! If I saw you, I probably would ask for the time...and if you said you "didn't know" I'd walk away and think you were *mataray* LOL :)

Great dress! Sometimes, stuff in malls is mass produced (from China) and sold for a ridiculous price when really its only worth a fraction. True story!
