It's been a while

Hooray for long weekends and good company! It's been a while since I went out with friends (because everyone is so busy with thesis and other academic related things), so I really missed being out. I also got to experience Ina's outfit documentation frustrations when it's night time. I now completely understand and have even more respect for her.

Jacket: A gift from my mom. She got this jacket from Nepo Mall in Angeles City, Pampanga. I'm not quite sure which store, though. My cousin Kevin picked it out for me! 
Top: Forever 21 P800
The top is actually a dress that I tucked into my shorts, so it would look like a shirt.

Hand Bag: Borrowed from mom. It says "Plaid isn't bad". I think it's funny.

Necklace: This necklace is actually a surprise birthday gift from a friend. She had it shipped all the way from the Philippines to LA (because I stayed there for a little while the other year). I love wearing this because it reminds me of my dad.

Shorts: I got these shorts from a thrift shop along Barangka Drive near Boni Avenue. Here is a map of how to get there, if you're interested. Just take Boni until you reach the McDonalds after Rizal Technological University and turn left to Barangka Drive.

Shoes: Sweet Little Thoughts P1790
You can follow them on Instagram (sweetlittlethoughtsshop) or check them out on Facebook, if you're interested. They sell other things like accessories, bags, phone cases, and the like.

Here is a photo of me and Ina! Excuse me as I awkwardly hold Kevin's cigarette for him while he took the picture. If you wanna know more about Ina's outfit, you should click here!

And here's me and my lovely cousin, Kevin. He is quite lovely, but not as lovely as his birthmark.

Thanks for the awesome night out, you guys!

Our house in the middle of the street

Please excuse the bad photo quality! I just used my iPhone camera to take the picture. Haha.

These babies arrived today. I am happy and satisfied. Expect to see them with some outfits very soon!

I got them from an online store called Sweet Little Thoughts. You can find them on Instagram as Sweetlittlethoughtsshop and on Facebook!

I just wanted to look nice that day.

...because it was August 11 last week, and I've been saving this dress for something important. Okay, I'm sure only people who know me will understand the first sentence, but that day is very important to me for reasons. 

But since there was a number of natural calamities, it felt weird to go out, so we didn't anymore. But I still made an outfit for that day anyway! 

Again, another super simple outfit. Since this was supposed to be a date outfit, I want the focus to be me, and not so much everything else, hence the light makeup and very minimal accessories. 

Remember what I said about my face being derp in shots like this? Yeah, It really is derp. Haha! But I really do love the back of this dress! It's oh so very loverly.

Earrings: Penshoppe P270 (it comes in a set, with other kinds of earrings!)
"Dale, make them look like they're talking to each other!" Because I made Dale adjust the birds so that they'd face each other.

Dress: Forever 21 P979
I really absolutely super love this dress! The print, the shape, the cut, everything! And it helps that I feel a little extra girly, and perky, and bubbly when I'm in it (I don't know why, I just do).

Thank you again, Dale Garcia! You are wonderful and full of rainbows and smiles! Do check out his blog to see more of his work and adventures!

Dale and I, we're ninjas

Because when Dale and I were scheduled to shoot, the weather wasn't cooperative, so we decided to find a place in school instead. Hence, ninjas, since our school has a very strict dress-code. This outfit is super simple, because I really wanted to focus on the dress, and not so much with accessories and heavy makeup. 

Lips: Ever Bilena's matte line in Mauve

Dress: Jellybean P500 
I absolutely love this dress. It was such a steal! And it's incredibly comfortable, too. I am really in love with this brand, okay? They have so many nice things. Things, meaning dresses, shoes, bags, and everything. So things = everything, I guess.

Oh right, and it shows my lower back all sneaky-like. My face is always so very awkward in shots like this. :(

Bracelet: Lulu by K&M P150
If you're interested in getting a bracelet similar to mine (or exactly like mine, if you like), check out her Facebook page! She has other accessories on sale as well. :)
Ring: Random clothes stall in Nepo Mall, Angeles City, Pampanga
I really love this ring. I don't know how it all started, but I've always had a thing for stars and outer space and things.

Shoes: Borrowed from mom.

Thanks again, Dale Garcia, for the wonderful pictures! It's always so fun and sabaw when we shoot together. :) Don't forget to check out his wonderful blog for more of his work and life and Dale! :D
