Despite being said that Christmas has become way "too commercialized", i think what matters is the spirit of giving and well-being when we give our loved ones the perfect gift. Just to see a smile light up a receiver's face makes the holiday stress worthwhile. I'm enjoying a few quiet days before Christmas and I've been reflecting the quiet holidays I'll be having. Christmas used to mean my extended families gathering and I used to abhorr comments I get from relatives, like "when did u become fat?" (believe it or not, it's a standard greeting in my country). But now I kinda miss my curious aunties and rowdy cousins.
Just one last outfit post before the holidays descend on us and I'd like to greet every visitor on my blog a Merry, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Hello Santa claus!
Anyway, this dress-lover does wear jeans too and I've always loved the classic white shirt and denim combo. I just have to tweak my shoe and bag choices and then I'd be good to go.
And have you heard that pink, specifically, honeysuckle, is the 2011's color. Isnt that great? Have a great day everyone :)

Over the weekend, I was reading Angela Carter's collection of stories and I love how her tales depict a particulary dark fairytale. The characters are quite familiar but not so because they all have a twisted tale to tell. There's Snow White who was borne out of her father's fantasy and not her mother's, a Cinderella who was wed to a Marquise de Sade and so on But what I liked most is that her writings are so rich, she interweaves stories with luxurious elements like a Poiret white gown, a blood red ruby necklace and hundreds of keys that holds treasures.
On a lighter note, have you done your christmas shopping yet? I haven't and I'm absolutely in scrambles to make a list. My only complaint is that the variety of merchandise have become so generic or is it just me?
Happy Weekend everyone!

Last Saturday, my dad and I held a Thanksgiving/ early christmas party for some of our friends. Our theme was Tex-Mex and it was fun cooking new dishes to serve to a party.
It was my first time to cook Tacos and I had no recipe at all butI tried duplicating the ones from Pancake house. The guests liked these tee hee :)
Wearing a one shouldered jumpsuit for the party. I've been dressing so much casually these days and jumpsuits are an easy way to get dressed in the morning.
Have a great day everyone! 23 days till christmas!

Hello lovelies! First of all, I apologize for not getting back to your comments. I slipped and fell on my ballet flats as I'm going to the doctor ( an ironic thing to happen, i say) and I've been recuperating my sore arm and hip these past few days. I've been browsing the 2011 s/s collections and I admit, Dolce and Gabbana's sexy lace dresses are my favorite. White lace for me evokes a romantic casual mood so I was inspired to dress up in my own lace dress for meeting with friends.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hello! So I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses and I'm thinking of "retiring" it as I have worn it quite frequently these past few years. I see nothing wrong with repeating outfits and a change of accessories plus shoes is an exciting challenge in my part in making the outfit look "new" again. My dad and I had a spare time before his appointment so we went to this beautiful hotel by the sea that allow visitors to stroll around their boardwalk for free. Isn't it the most wonderful thing when suprises like this happen?
Have a great weekend everyone!

Living in a tropical country means that most of my wardrobe are resort-like pieces, able to cool me off in the heat. But in the rare times chilly rain comes or in this case, a typhoon, I can wear my boots and trench coat for practicality.
Have a great day everyone and stay safe. Thanks for visiting :)

Hello everyone! So things have been slow on the blog front lately due to me getting a bout of stomach flu ( i think i'll stay away from indulging in clams, for a while). Today has been the first day in which i've felt dressing up and I'd like to show a Marni dress I've recently acquired. This dress originally had a drop waist and tulip shaped skirt but I hiked the waist up a bit with a belt to give it some shape on my petite frame.
I just love the geometric patterns and prints of the dress, it had me mesmerized when I first spotted it. The sabrina neckline is a nice touch too, I adore how modest and classy it is.
(Please excuse the moon face and silly smile hihi)

Thank you for visiting! Wishing everyone a delightful weekend. ;)

Hi everyone! How's your Thursday? I was excited to experiment with my dad's pasalubong (gift), a nikkor 50 mm lens so I snapped my work outfit today. I wanted to keep my outfit from being too girly so I searched for the perfect accessory to go with it. I espied this floral fedora hat I got from SM a month ago and it just blended with my outfit. And oh, I'm having a nude shoe phase too!
