It was a very tiring day, to say the least, my legs felt like melting wax after hours of walking/some running/and more walking in 4 inches heels. Then there's psychological stress when you can't decide which of Camille Co's stuff you'd want to get. Well, I wanted all of them, but I needed to choose only a thing or two. And of course, there's emotional struggle, when you have to accept the fact that you just can't have all the beautiful clothes/bags/shoes and accessories. haha Nevertheless, my aching feet and sore back was all worth it (?) because I had a lot of fun at the bazaar. Aside from scourging through racks and racks of good finds, I was able to satisfy my unyielding craving for milk tea because there was Mang Cha-a and Taco parlors as well. I also scored Camille Co's belt which she wore here and a neon yellow necklace (couldn't find her entry for it). I got her awesome snakeskin waist belt for only Php 150 and the necklace for Php 100! I get so kilig to think that these were Camille Co's! I just love that lovely girl so much ♥ Anyway, let me show you what I wore. Earlier today, I dropped a hint that I'll be wearing Cartoon Network. Well, I did, literally :)
This dress was, as I've mentioned in my post this morning, a hand-me-down from my boss! There's a little dramatic story to it, and if you want to know a bit more about that, you can read it here. Anyways, it was a good thing she's got great taste too and that it doesn't fit her anymore. lol I think the checkered print is so cute. It maybe a little on the stereotype side, you would agree I guess, but I honestly loved it! It also has an empire cut, which is quite visible on the photos, but I didn't feel wearing it that way so I cinched a waist belt to put a bit of shape to it ^_^ .
I decided to wear minimal accessories since I thought I would be hoarding at the event. Well, I thought I was early enough. NOT! Apparently, my ensemble strictly adhered to blacks and whites. Simple but put together, so to speak.
This thrifted bag was my miracle. I was already putting the "black studded, fringed, sling bag" on the top of my wish list for this Christmas' monito-monita when lo and behold! I found one at a nearby thrift store and I got it for Php350! It was still a bit pricey since it was included in the new arrivals. Nonetheless, I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and I knew I had to get my hands on this baby!
I'd like to thank my ate Nadia for this neck piece. She gave it to me 4 years ago and this is so dear to me. I've overused this piece and will abuse it more in the coming years. By the way, I wanted to show you my new hair color! Sadly, the shade is only ocular under the sunlight. So I'm still pondering whether I need to visit the parlor again for another shade :p
Look at the stamp! BFAD approved :D
I love the windy effect on my bangs here lol. My boyfriend and I still can't believe that all these shots were taken via his Samsung Galaxy S3. Gosh I love that phone. Its camera is quite astounding!
