First Week of (School) Fashion06:37
"Everyday is a Fashion Show and the World is your Runway"
Hello everyone! So sorry that I haven't been able to post anything for a whole month. My last post dated back at May 14, so I guess counted right.
Basically, this post is all about the outfits that I've worn this past week (oh, by the way, I'm on my third year of college now, one more year to go). Excluding Wednesday though, it was Independence Day over here in the Philippines, so it was then a National Holiday, meaning, NO CLASS. XD As much I did enjoy dressing up to my standards, I still couldn't resist the idea of staying home in my pambahay. :))
It was sad that I wasn't able to have a decent outfit shoot for any of my outfits. :(( Nonetheless, what else are a mirror and cellphone camera for?
Note: Pictures are in low quality.
DAY 1: Monday, KHAKI REBELLION
|COVER UP: Ukay-ukay|
GRAY TUNIC: My Cousin's hand-me-down
KHAKI SKINNIES: Repaired them from flared ones myself :3
Like the name suggests, I went for a sort-of military look with a slight touch of femininity. I've been in love with the sight of military inspired jackets these days and put it on top of my agenda list ever since. =)) I found this cover-up in Sta. Cruz Market and eventually, I was also able to spot a bigger, more jacket-y version in Magay (another ukay-ukay place). I'll post about it soon. :>
Unfortunately, it was freaking hot that day and i had to take off the cover-up every once in a while to prevent my self from soaking up in my sweat. That would be unpleasant. = ="
DAY 2: Tuesday, MY DREAM SWEATER
|STRIPED SWEATER: Ukay-ukay|
KHAKI JEANS: Redgirl
BELT: Mother's Closet
SHOES: Given by my Mom's Friend
Once more, having been able to find the best pieces for the lowest cost will bring upon one of the best feelings ever. :3 I remember seeing a lot of bloggers sport this type of sweater and thought to myself, "I wish I had that". A little searching and being able to withstand the stench later, I found this baby! :D
To be honest, if it weren't for my older sister accompanying me and shopping herself, I wouldn't have been able to get this top's price to lower. XD All the more fun it is to shop with someone you're close with. :>
DAY 3: Thursday, BACK FROM PARIS
|WHITE SHIRT: Mother's Closet|
WEDGE HEELS: Just For Feet
SCARF: Given to me by my Grandmother
This, if I may say, is my FAVORITE LOOK. I actually thought of this outfit while I was taking a bath. Of course, the night before I was practicing on how to tie the scarf, but the idea of the outfit in a completely different setting. I had expected to wear these jeans for the day, but not the rest of the ensemble.
You really just have to love the scarf! I don't exactly have a zoomed shot of it, but if you see those little pink patterns, then those are roses. To be honest, I was actually pressured to using the scarf since my grandmother gave it to me for the sole reason that she knew that I'd use it. Of course, I've had my eyes on it for a while but didn't expect her to give it away so soon. I mean, come on, she got it as a birthday present.
DAY 4: Friday, DIY RACERBACK
|RACERBACK TOP: Made from thrifted shirt|
The day before, two of my relatives arrived from Manila and stayed for around two days. They're the family of my dad's sister, unfortunately, my aunt wasn't able to go with them for specific reasons. During this day, my uncle had requested that we visit my lolo's grave, since only my aunt and cousin went to his burial.
I may have anticipated how hot the day would become, so I made the decision of wearing something light and breezy. And since my hair is suffering from a case of identity crisis, I decided to pull it up into a ponytail. Who knows how many directions my hair would end up in after a day. @@
DAY 5: Saturday, BY THE BAY
|STRIPED CROP TOP: Made from thrifted shirt|
HIGH-WAISTED SHORTS: Given to me by my best friend
This the last morning that my uncle and cousin would be staying with us, so they decided to treat us all to breakfast outside. We had it at Lantaka, which may explain the name of this ensemble. We were only supposed to stay there 'til 10am, but we got caught up in our own little world back there and just lost track of time.
And there we have it! Well, not exactly the most conventional first week of school, but not also the most boring. I actually had to be absent from my Friday classes to be able to spend time with my uncle and cousin. Luckily for me, there hadn't been any professors during that time. :D
So which one is you favorite ensemble? I'd really like to read your comments and critique. :3
