Four Eyes

Outfit Details
Blouse - Gift from my Grandma Colleen! I just received it in the mail, along with some Sees chocolate! (Thanks again Grandma!)
Headband - Gift from Daren's mom

I'm so excited to finally have a cute pair of glasses! I have been wearing glasses since the 5th grade, and I made the change to contacts in the 8th grade...I broke my glasses that year, and since then, I have only worn contacts! So it has been almost 5 years my eyes have gone without a break.

Well, in other news, I'm been knitting like a mad lady. Hopefully my project will be done by tomorrow so I can post photos!

Trying New Things

Outfit Details
Tank Top - People Are People
Shorts - SM
Hat - SM
Shoes - Toms (they are so comfy!)

Does my outfit look familiar?


Let me tell you, I've been on the hunt for a cute pair of high waisted shorts for a long time! I know these particular ones may not be very figure flattering, but I love 'em anyways. They are such a great color and they only cost around $7.

I've been keeping myself busy working on projects for Style School and I have finally made a list of goals for 2010..Better late then never, right?

Back in the City

I am back in Makati now from the quick trip to Boracay with Daren's family. I'm kinda of bummed, Daren's sister, and fellow blogger, Dana and her husband go back to California tomorrow! I had a lot of fun with them these past two weeks, and I'm sad to see them go.

Well, I'm going to be a cheater and post outfit photos that were taken the day before we left to Boracay last week. I hope you don't mind!

This last photo made me realize I'm not a very good or glamourous jumper, hahah!

Outfit Details
Dress - Topshop, X-mas gift!
Boots - Reflections
Headband - I'm not sure!

A Walk on the Beach

The weather cleared up yesterday for a little while, so we all went out to the beach to take some photos and play a little volleyball... I had this dress custom made for me using the same pattern as the dress Daren made me for Christmas. I love it, but now I have strange tan lines from wearing it all day in the sun, well, they are more like sun burn lines hahaha!

The Red Skirt

Outfit Details
Blouse - People Are People
Skirt - Made by me!
Shoes - People Are People

We have been in Boracay for the past three days with a bunch of Daren's family who has recently come to visit from California. We have been going to the beach and eating tons..It has been kind of a bummer though, the weather has been overcast and windy. Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow..Daren is dying to take some photos at the beach.

The skirt I am wearing I actually made myself! I used this tutorial. I love how it came out, and I want to make one in every color now.

A Park!

Outfit Details
Dress - Ukay-Ukay
Shoes - Artwork
Headband - i'm not sure, ha.
Purse - Ukay-Ukay! (it was only 50 cents!)
Sunnies - A gift from my dad!

Daren and I have been on the lookout for good photo locations around the city. We asked our driver if he knew of any pretty locations and he took us to a great park that wasn't too far from where we live. It was such a refreshing sight to see green grass and pretty flowers instead of buildings and malls!

I wish I could write more, but it is 2 in the morning, and we are leaving to Boracay in the morning. I'll post lot's from there soon!

Casual Kass

Outfit Details
Shirt - Ukay Ukay - H&M!
Pants - Forever 21
Shoes - CMG
Heart Locket - Ukay Ukay
Flower Clip - Made by me!

After washing all of ukay finds, I realized this shirt was actually H&M! I was so excited, it looks new, and I got such a good deal...Three blouses for around 50 cents! I was actually wearing black jeans for the majority of the day...but I ran out of sticky paper on my lint roller and I was covered in dog fur! It is impossible to stay fur-free in a house with two Pomeranians! Sometimes I want to shave them bald...haha!
Style School Starts tomorrow!!! Did anyone else sign up for it??

Purple Plaid

Outfit Details
Dress - Vintage from Ukay-ukay
Shoes - CMG

This dress was one of my many finds during my last Ukay trip! I actually almost passed up visiting this specific store, Daren is the one who made me go in just in case! While we were taking these photos, a little boy followed us, and was peeking over Daren's shoulder the whole time..He was so cute but his dirty clothes broke my heart! Daren asked him if he wanted to get his photo taken also. It was hard trying to get him to smile, he didn't speak any English...But luckily we have been studying our Tagalog lately. At the end of the shoot, we gave him 100 pesos (about $2 US, which is valued a lot here) and he ran off happily.

Outfit Details
Dress - Gift from TopShop
Belt - I forgot, ha
Boots - Reflections
Sunglasses - A vendor on the beach

I received this dress as a Christmas gift from Daren's mom. It reminds me of something from the 90's! It is really different from everything I own, and I really enjoyed wearing it for that reason. Yesterday Daren and I decided on a whim to go to Quapo, and we got there in 30 minutes, were as usually it can take up to 2 hours! Daren bought some camera supplies, and I went crazy at the Ukay-Ukays (pinoy thrift stores). I ended up walking away with four dresses, three blouses, two skirts and one necklace. I'll post photos soon :)
