Trying out the versatility of Eden's Miso skirt :) Accessories are from AX Avenue.
What's in the box?
I ♥ this outfit because it boosted my confidence - the dress still fit me despite my growing baby bump! *wink*
I just hope I won't suddenly "expand" so I could still wear by pre-pregnancy clothes :)
Some more outfits I wore to the office. I'm now exempted from wearing the company uniforms given my "condition" *wink* but expect more photos of me mostly in flats. Mahigpit magbantay si hubby :P
L: Jacket and skirt from Landmark + pearl necklace + Melissa flats
R: Tea for Two button down dress + vintage jacket + Janylin silver studded flats
The disadvantage of having the mall near where you go to work is that you are always being tempted to look around and window shop. And then you'd fret when you see something that took your fancy and are wanting to buy it.
The box that holds all my accessory is now overflowing. Literally. Some of the bulkier items are stored separately. Though I don't really splurge on trinkets, I do sometimes buy things on impulse. Especially if it's cute and unique. But I do know how to keep my restraints; I don't buy items that are similar to what I already own. But my accessory box is still ready to burst off its hinges from the things I got in there. Some of which I haven't even worn yet. *sigh*
Anyway, I'd like to share with you some items I have that I really love - charm bracelets, earrings and cocktail rings.
As with any other girls, I'm pretty excited to share with you some trinkets I've got for me-self :)
I love dresses. It very easy kasi - saves me time (and less stress) thinking about which tops go best with what bottoms. With a dress, all you have to think about is your accessory (and shoes, of course) and you're ready to go.
For my next entry of Style Diary, I've collected some of my dress ensembles. I've donned these on different occassions (from L-R): friend's wedding at Calaruega, company event and our engagement session (aka prenuptial pictorial).
What are your favorite dresses? :)
Bright yellow ruffled blouse + black gartered belt + blue tulip skirt + nude bejeweled flats
I wore this outfit when we shot our company's Customer Care AVP. And a lot of the feedback I got was that I looked cute like Snow White(?!). It's probably because of the color combination and the tulip skirt reminded some of a ball gown. So, I'm calling this my "Snow White ensemble". Ha ha ha!
The bold colors will definitely make you stand out. During the shoot, N from the ad agency took notice of my skirt and she said she bought a dress that had the same skirt. That's how we found out that we bought our items from the same brand / designer. Hi hi hi! Talk about same tastes :)
I was still unsure if I should start a new category for this. I am sure though that my fashion sense isn't always on the mark. But hey, dressing should always be fun (and yes, sometimes frustrating). So, I'm starting a new series of blog entries called Style Diaries. I'll post some of my get-ups for whatever occassion (should there always be reason? Hi hi hi.) and inspiration I had. I might also post some of my accessories and fab finds.
If you think I look fab or drab, I'm open for suggestions and (constructive) criticisms. Just go easy on me, ok? :) I want to start this series so we could all learn from each other so don't hesitate to give tips and fashion advise :)
By the way, I don't really put much effort in making myself up so bear with me if my face / hair need a fixing up and just focus on the outfits instead. He he he.
First up, rust colored mini dress and bejeweled flats. May also be layered with cardigan and leggings as what I did last February 4.
What do you think? :)
It's hard to escape temptation when the mall is just a few minutes walk from your office. During lunch hours, I and my colleagues would sometimes dine out and after eating, we'd run errands or just simply window shop. The problem with window shopping is sometimes "Oh, I'm just looking around." would eventually end up in me taking out my card and next thing I knew I'm carrying a shopping bag =P But for 2011, I've promised myself to ease out on shopping especially on clothes, shoes etc. and just limit it to only buying what I need.
Just a while ago, I went out with H since she was shopping for some work shoes. I followed her around stores and found out that Mango, Zara and other shops at Glorietta are having some sale. Thankfully, I had successfully resisted temptation and just contented myself with looking around and trying on some shoes. I'm patting myself in the back right now but I thought of sharing here some items that I saw from Zara and Mango that I would have bought for myself :P
