I finally got to wear my Thakoon for Target Shibori print dress today. I have begged my younger sister to buy it for me in the States and what do you know? It was on sale! It was a large size but better big than small don't you think? Thank god for tailors. The original plan was to go to the park but as it is the Manny Pacquiao fight today, the bf and I had to hurry and buy some food while we sit brain dead infront of the tv during the match (which lasted only two rounds or simply put, 6 minutes!).
So how was your weekend? It was pistay dayat (Festival of the Sea) this May in my province so we got to attend a concert by the sea and watched a bikini open. Plus, bodyboarding during the day, it's me and the bf's new hobby. The bigger waves the better.

I have been tagged by the gorgeous Eden of Chic in the Tropics and I'd like to thank her for being so supportive of Filipina bloggers. So here are my answers!

[1] What are your current obsessions?

beautiful beaches, relaxing spas, ysl tribute heels, the hermes smart car, hermes twillies, Emilio Pucci dresses!

[2] What is your weirdest obsession?

Lacy, floaty, vintage white dresses to the point that my bf asks me if I want to join a choir

[3] What are you wearing today?

Powerpuff girls tshirt and boyfriend jeans. It's sunday y'all :D

[4] What’s for dinner today?

Grilled chicken and some stewed vegetables. Plus mangoes for dessert!

[5] Why is today special?

Because today, I first wore boyfriend jeans and loved it. AND Pacquiao won at 2nd round. Amazing!!

[6] What would you like to learn to do?

How to craft precious jewelry and manage time. I don't seem to have enough of it!

[7] What’s the last thing you bought?

Hand sanitizer and silicon bra (information overload!!). The sanitizer is for the prevention of germs. The silicon bra for invisible bra lines when dresses are strapless or spaghetti strapped.

[8] What are you listening to right now?

Hot and Cold by Katy Perry. Am like that sometimes.

[10] What is your most challenging goal right now?

Keep my business running smoothly. Everyday presents new challenges grrr... I never run out of it. AND edit out my closet. It's hard to dress up in the morning when you have a million choices staring out at you and think "there's nothing I could wear!" *wail*

[11] What do you think about the person who tagged you?

I admire Eden because she is supportive of Filipina bloggers. I envy the parties she attends and love her cool style!

[12] If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

Bali, Indonesia for summer and/or Prague, Czech Republic

[13] What would you like to have in your hands right now?

Lottery winnings?!

[14] What would you like to get rid of?

my weight? so I could be a perfect size 2 and fit into my former clothes *sigh*

[15] If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

Paris, France

[16] Which language do you want to learn?

Spanish because it is part of my family. and French. I'm getting there!

[17] What do you look for in a friend?

Someone you can turn to when all things are looking bleak. Sounds cliche but true! My friends have been there through my ups and downs

[18] Who do you want to meet in person?

Sofia Coppola

[20] What’s the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?

My Marc Jacobs blue dots dress. It fits me like a glove and a thrift find!

[21] What is your dream job?

Marine Scientist or Editor in Chief of Vogue

[22] Any favorite models?

Jourdan Dunn, Maryna Linchuk, Natalia Vodianova

[24] What would you like an endless supply of?

Gorgeous shoes...

[25] Girl crush?

Scarlet Johannsen

[26] Do you admire anyone’s style?

Yes! They are too many to mention I wish I could remember them all. Aranell from chictopia stands out for me right now because of her romantic, girly style.

[27] Describe your personal style.

I like dresses because you can be dressed in a jiffy. Plus the whole dress can make a statement. I like both ballet flats and heels because they present a different side of you when paired with a dress. My wardrobe is extremes, you can find designer labels along with thrifted pieces. Shorts also form a vital part of my wardrobe plus beachwear because I can run to the beach in a heartbeat :D
So I guess that's it. Whew. It's my first time to answer a tag and it really got me thinking. To spread the cheers, I'm tagging:
Che of my sweet revenge
Just my Style
Fashion Moment
Overdressed Me
Can't wait to see your answers! Have a lovely weekend lovelies!

this dress is adorable! and that tied headband finishes it off perfectly. so sweet!

im also a fan of designers working for the likes of Target. and ur right, d sizes are always much bigger. and that is when a belt comes in handy.

Fashion Addict said...

I love that dress and it looks so good on you! And it is better if you get things in a bigger size, because as you said, there's always tailors!
