I know I have gained some weight. TSK! I can see it from my little bulges at the side. ( I want to cry right now. LOL) But this black outfit I made did the trick. Like an illusion maybe. When you don’t stare at my body, you won’t see the bulges. LOL. Hopefully!
I have this top from the Philippines. It’s kind of old but this peacock design in front had me drawn to it that I couldn’t let go of it. I inverted it the way I wore it here because it’s not a tube top I cut the neckline and wore it upside down making the peacock design upside down as well. So if you look at it very closely, that’s the peacock tail that is shown in the design. My pants, oh yeah my pants. It’s a basic bell bottom stretch pants that you won’t even give a second look until I put a twist to it when I cut one of the legs as a slit. And now, I can see fashion to it. 🙂
I broke the monotony as how you call it by wearing a simple beads design bracelets which is a DIY by myself. They are really pretty to me because they look like candies in the middle of a dark box.
So what do you think? Would you dare black?
When I saw this sweater in the mall I fell in love immediately. It’s so light and comfy and it covers even my hands. The orange color looks yummy and it is so soft like your favorite blanket. The weather is in the upper 70s today, it’s so nice to wear an outfit like this because it’s still breezy especially in the afternoon. I usually feel the cold temperature in my upper extremities than in my lower extremities so even if my legs are exposed I am ok as long as my chest and arms are not.
I finally wear my coach purse which my husband bought for me a few months ago. I love it because it’s so spacious and easy to carry because you can use it as a sling bag, I am thinking this bag is good for travels as well.
My headpiece is a DIY as well as my necklace. I saw this cute shell decor from the house that look like a pendant, I put a hole on it and put a string and there! I got a necklace! I am loving my shoes, they are so adorable and cute. I love to just run around with them coz they are very comfortable, I already know I will be using them a lot more later. My shorts are thrifted, they are a cut out from a 3/4 pants. Of course, it’s also DIY 🙂 I got my shades from Steve Madden.

That’s all for now guys, I hope you enjoyed this post. :))
Guess who sew my pants? ME! There is this size 10 skirt that I saw from a thriftstore and the print is just so adorable to me. I knew I had to grab it even if it means I needed to alter it myself to whatever I could think about, and it turned out to be this printed pants. I paired it here with a forever21 blazer/jacket, and a white lace tank top.
These are the shoes I bought online which I used to pair for my thanksgiving dress last year. I love them in tan. It compliments my skintone.
As you noticed, the prints go along with each other. I carried the leopard clutch purse because I associate the prints in my blazer and pants with it. They have these animal quality in them as well. All in all, I am happy for the outcome of this post. I have finally worn the pants I made myself! For me, this is the thing about fashion, it gives you the opportunity to be creative. Have a goodnight everyone! See you on my next post.
We went to eat at Applebees yesterday and the temperature was just so beautiful to wear a lacy tiered dress above the knee. I felt so bloated after a good lunch so I told my husband we would chase a running train passing by. And we will take pictures of course. LOL!
I told my husband I couldn’t find a new pose when he is the one taking pictures of me. LOL! It’s either I will be holding my hair or the side of my head like a shy teenager whose photo is being taken by her crush. 🙂
I am wearing a summer fossil purse which I got online again, my blazer is thrifted and my dress is a vintage inspired lacy tiered dress I ordered online too, fashion booties from amazon, and Michael Kors Watch.
This is my bestfriend next to my husband 🙂 My husband bought it for me a few months ago when he saw how I loved to alter clothes on my own. Before this, I was doing all my sewing with my bare hands and it was not so easy and comfortable. When I got my babylock sewing machine which is so easy to use, everything in sewing seems so simple. Well, at least when you just look at it. LOL! But I got this from a Sew and Quilt where they offer a lifetime of free sewing class, so I attended classes for about two sessions and just learned the basics. If you just want to order a baby lock machine from the website which is a lot cheaper I believe, you can visit www.babylock.com for more information.
I think every fashionista wants to learn how to sew even just the basic in sewing. This urge of wanting how to sew begins when you order something online and it turns out to be a little big in size. What are you going to do when you badly want to wear the dress but you can’t because it just look rediculously big on you? My answer, get it redone by myself….;-)
This is in my fashion room. I didn’t take a pic of the entire room because the other corner is in chaos. LOL! I love to hang out in here everytime I am at home, to read fashion magazines, to watch fashion TV and of course to sew. This is it for now guys. See you again later!
I just finished altering this skirt today. As you noticed of course I am wearing a headpiece of the same cloth, which is the extra cloth from where I cut it. I really don’t know what’s up with me in the last few days, I just love some retro look like I am some vintage chic which is okay because vintage is one of my favorites.
I don’t feel like wearing any shoes. I just wanted to go out there with my stockings on feeling the coldness of the concrete. It was in the 60’s so it wasn’t that bad.
If we have a garden at the backyard, I want to go out there everyday in the afternoon to water the plants looking retro just like this, probably. And then have my picture taken by my husband. LOL!
Retro is so refreshing though, isn’t it?
Feeling blue? Definitely not! Because blue is one of my favorite colors, especially the royal blue. That’s why until now I couldn’t get rid of this blue ruffled top that I got from Body Central a year ago. But I am thinking, I guess it’s time to take one more picture with it right now and I will get rid of it soon. 🙂 The black purse is from Koret that I got for free from Sneakpeeq. If you don’t know anything about Sneakpeeq, visit it here www.sneakpeeq.com, I am sure if you are a new user and is addicted to any fashion piece and ensemble for free or at least almost free, you will enjoy it there!
My coat is thrifted. I love it! I am a fashionista/recessionista. It’s not all the time that you have to go online or shop at the malls nearby you and spend much money for shopping. You can also visit your nearby thriftstores and they carry a lot of nice second hand stuffs that still of good conditions. 😉 I got my shorts from gap, about a year ago.
My wedge booties, I can’t wait to wear it outside again. They are so light and comfortable. I wore them once already when my husband and I went out for lunch. Too bad it was just freezing outside, that you woudn’t dare take a pose for a photo. LOL! See you again later guys. Hope all of you have a goodnight! Muah!
The idea of the outfit is the wilderness in Africa. I have been dreaming to go on a Safari trip but this dream of mine is the last thing on my husband’s mind. I wanted to throw an outfit like this one if ever I will be given a chance to go there one day. 🙂
My headpiece is a cut out from my skirt. I decided to cut it because I didn’t want to wear a wrap around skirt below my knees. Then I wrapped it in my head instead, and I found the idea cute. My shoes and my jacket were a bargain I found online, I totally, absolutely love them! What yah think?
As promised, I said I will take more pics in 2013, I am starting to fulfill that promise now. Whenever I find some time off work, I will do the best that I can to take pics and dig up my closet for pieces and ensembles. I am sorry if I am looking real blank in this first photo on top because I was trying to imitate models from magazines with their blank looks, lol! I think I look slightly retarded doing it. But I am a fashionista/model in the making, LOL! I am willing to experiment everything.
I thought this photo is really candid! I wish I could play more with my tripod but it’s slightly hard to run on a carpeted floor with my new shoes on. Urgh! I wish my photographer (husband) hasn’t gone tired of me taking pictures here and there and I can still make use of his extra effort in taking all the photos that I want.
I am wearing a Charlotte Russe Cropped jacket that I grabbed from the outlet not too long ago, a forever 21 sequinned skirt, a Michael Kors Watch, and a fashion ankle booties I grabbed from Amazon. I hope you enjoyed this post. See you all later. Muah!
I have nothing much to say right now. I planned to take plenty more pictures as 2013 arrived but it didn’t happen because of some things here and there. But I will take more pictures as 2013 goes on that is for sure. Happy 2013 everyone!
