One of the easiest looks for me to pull of is dressing like a school girl. I usually just have to throw on a skirt, a collared top, socks, sneakers, and voila, I have an outfit. I also think I look the part since I’m short (lol), and even more so now that I have short hair. Until now, I didn’t realize that I dressed up like a school girl twice during my trip to Japan. Realizing I don’t have enough pictures to do separate posts for each one, I decided to just combine the two in one post! 😛 So here’s me, school girl dressing in Japan. (Before anything else, let me point out the these photos are intentionally grainy because I’m trying to give out that old analog film vibe. Let me know what you think about it, please. :P)
Most of the people who know me well are aware of how much I like to shop. I’ve blogged about how much trouble I’ve been in with my mom because I spend too much on clothes and shoes. I did a 60-day shopping ban challenge and I’m proud that I was able to finish it. I’m now more able to control my shopping impulses, and can now go out of a store empty handed. I spend less now too, but from time to time, I’d buy a little something for myself and even then, I’m now more conscious about how much it costs and if it’s worth the amount.
I low key live for 90s fashion. It wasn’t until I were in college that I realized that it was my aesthetic, and it intensified now that it’s become the latest trend again. Plain white tees, embroidery and patches, button down shirts, tight shirt under a slip dress, sneakers + dress combo, denim jackets, A-line skirts and high waist everything — my closet is filled with those. I like how chill the fashion is, and I actually really like old-school things.
I’m a pretty picky person to dress up. I’m very specific when it comes to clothes because I like to pay attention to every single detail. Because I’m a huge believer in comfort being a top priority in every piece I wear, it takes me a lot of time before settling into what I’m going to wear. It becomes easier when I’m just dressing up for a leisurely stroll in the mall, or a night out with friends. But it’s a whole new different story when I’m supposed to be all dolled up.
One of my indulgences is scouring Pinterest for formal dresses. I’ve always liked thinking of occasions where I can wear a long gown, and dress up like the woman that I am deep inside. Of course I’d rather be in jeans and sneakers but there’s something about gowns that just awakens the 7-year old in me. I look forward to events that requires me to wear formal clothes no matter how much of a hassle it might be. One such event was for my graduation ball in college. I spent days looking for the perfect dress online and I’ve never been happier to be living in an era where it’s easy to look for just about anything, and I’m happy to say that I found the perfect grad ball gown.
It’s been so long since I last posted a fashion related post, and I guess it’s fitting that I come back with a new blog segment. Lol. This isn’t going to be super long but I just want to share this outfit with you guys because I like it a lot. I’m recently into 90’s and Korean outfits so I decided to this together, and I’m so thankful that the weather cooperated with me!
For our family’s last hurrah in 2016, we decided to go to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bagac, Bataan. It was such a dream come true for me because I’ve always wanted to go. My mom always gushed about how beautiful the place is, so when we finally finalized the plan that we’re going to go, I made sure to dress my best to be able to at least match the pretty houses I’m going to be surrounded with. 😛
