  • Isn't this bananas? B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
  • hihihi. Well I got this sequined top and patchwork skirt from my one, and only favorite thrift store weeks ago. WOW! Each for 1$. Tell me how amazing is that?
  • The truth is am a bit hesitant about this outfit. I don't usually go for something short and tight. But for a change why not. And husband likes it. hihihhii.
Some of our readers were asking, and i get a lot of e-mails about this question if I get pressured by "fashion", specifically by new trends, the "it" shoes, bags etc, so instead of answering one by one on email Ill just say it here. Well, let me put it this way. No I don't. hihihii. Fashion is fun, dressing up is fun, and it's nice knowing the latest trends and be up to date. Am almost 30 now so the pressure is off. Since my source of fashion is the thrift store, I just can't go hardcore on pressuring the owner to provide me what's on the runway. Crazy! That's why I love thrifting, you become very creative on fusing old and new, second hand and branded pieces in your wardrobe. But id like to invest on quality shoes and bags that can surpass all season. And like this sequined top for example. I always wanted to own a sequined top, or skirt, or jacket but am never buying one. They are expensive. In my mind i know someday the thrift store will provide me one. Heck! Instead i got two. hihhihi. So really, there is no pressure. The key is to just have fun.

You know what's competitive? Thrifting! I have to visit the store every week to see and browse every pile of new items or somebody else will get them. hihiih.

HAve a great weekend everyone!

top and skirt: thrift
bag: Forward and Scoop

love the skirt! and the shoes!! i thought at first look that they are from LAMB. super chica. i knew i missed a lot of things when i went home. two weeks isn't just enough.

Mads said...

First, I LOVE your shoes super!!! Possibility has lots of nice shoes talaga no.. Regarding the mga nakikiride, true, ano ba sila si Manny ung nasusuntok pero sila ang nakikinabang! and all they do is hover inside the ring para sa exposure hmmpp.. Grabe yang ukay ukay mo parang sa inyo na ata napunta ung magaganda..=)What I love about ukay pieces is you bought it because you liked it then marerealize mo after ilang months of having it, ay nauuso na pala siya so you don't need to buy sa mga mamahalin..
