Blouse: Landmark department store; Shorts: For Me; Accesories: Local artisans;
In our family, Saturday is "Therapy" day. My mother coined this term after waking up every saturday to look for some garage sales and score amazing deals. There is really something therapeutic in acquiring things but in moderation of course. My therapy is getting out of hand as I have paper bags yet to unpack. I recently bought a lot of basic things like polo t-shirts and shorts as the hot and humid weather dictates us to wear this everyday. If you have been in Manila, you would know how sticky summer can be.
So I will be imposing on myself a shopping ban of clothes for two weeks then let's see. I was able to go shoe-shopping free for two months so why not for clothes? But I've always been a clothes hag and this might be more daunting.
My blouse in the photos was something I picked from a department store. It was meant to be a bikini cover-up but I ended up wearing it with shorts to give it more mileage. The pattern reminded me of Missoni knits, which along with Pucci, seems to be the perfect clothes for summer. Once in Adora, my friend and I ran our hands along a Missoni dress but nearly fainted with the price. This is what I wore this morning to go to "Therapy". I went thrift shopping for summer clothes and it was an enjoyable experience. The only bad thing about the trip is when I touched another woman's choice of dress which I did accidentally. Then she made a deregatory remark about my figure not being able to "beautify" the dress. *Sigh*
My cheap thrill of the day: sparkly bracelets for my mom and my sisters at only 400 php/8$ a pop :D
