It was a gloomy Monday afternoon and I’m feeling blue, stuck at home and I got nothing to do. Good thing my friend texted me and asked me out so we can catch up since we haven’t seen each other for months. 30 minutes before our meet up, I’m still undecided what to wear. I wanted my outfit to be something catchy (
something ka-pansin pansin kung baga). So, I choose my fave neon aztec button down and my blue and white stripe leggings ( print on print ang peg. lol). For my shoes, I wanted something in plain para naman hindi overdone ang outfit ko. First to fit is a fave, my SM Parisian Blue Loafers. But, I doubted wearing it not because it doesn’t look good on my outfit but because I had an issue before when I used it. Second to try is my Nude Flats with Neon Tip from Solemate ( which I bought for only 150 pesos, cheap no?haha). It’s actually fine but it looks big on my feet, and for me, too much neon is a big NO-NO. So for my final fitting, I played safe by wearing my Zara/ Mango inspired flats (Black Flats with Gold Tip) from Cinderella. It goes very well in any outfit, promise! And now, I’m good to go!
I arrived in our meeting place a bit early so I was able to roam around the mall for a few minutes. As I entered the department store, I knew some people were looking at me while I’m walking. I’m not quite sure if it’s because of my ombre hair or because of my outfit (
Oh, well. I don’t really care. lol). I went straight to the shoe department to see if there’s still some items on sale or new arrivals that I might like. And then I noticed…. Oh my f****** gosh!!! Nagsasalita ang shoes ko from behind! OHHHH NOOOOO!!!! I need to get a pair!!! Yes, it was a wardrobe disaster!!! It is actually the thing that I wanted to avoid but still happened. My friend called and he said he’ll pick me up in 2 minutes. I was panicking, I don’t want him to wait a little longer. I tried to be really quick but still want to score a good pair that will compliment my outfit. Without a doubt, I grabbed this plain red flats from Solemate (Solemate is one of the most affordable but with quality brand of shoes).
It wasn’t the best pair but it saved my day and my outfit as well. That day turned out to be a memorable one. I had great time with my friend, enjoyed our delish food from Conti’s and I got home worry free. :)
Some say, shoes are the least appreciated things in this world. But for a shoe lover like me, it is the most important as it carries the whole outfit. Never ever sacrifice comfort/ comfortability over style. Always remember, a shoes can either make or break your day like what just happened to mine. :)

Styled my brother for the second time around for La Salle College- Antipolo E-Fashion Walk Season 2. E stands for Eco, which is the theme of the show. They were given a task to style their own with at least one Eco Accessory. Other than that, they have to incorporate another theme assigned to them according to year level. Since my brother is in his 1st year, the given theme for the freshmen was Rain and Shine. It took me time to think what it would looked like. Glad we were able to pull off an outfit from our last minute shopping. Yey!
Cover up - Oxygen
Customized Tee by yours truly. I was inspired by the movie Pitch Perfect. If you’re familiar with the movie, you’ll know why. :)
Cuff - SM Accessories
Pants - Tomato
Combat Shoes - Rusty Lopez
And for his Eco Accessory, I used an eco take out bag from my previous employer and turned it into a back pack.
I personally love the color combination and I’m pretty sure that this outfit is perfect for Rain and/or Shine. :)
What do you guys think? :)
Day two in Cebu! I was inspired by the song “In the Navy" by Village People and lucky me, I was able to score an outfit from my last minute shopping. :)
Since my lil brother’s not around, I took my own photos for my mandatory ootd (haha! kidding). And because I don’t have a tripod with me, a mirror shots work well in this kind of situation (am I right?lol).
Please excuse my big face. :))
Practice lang. :P
Fedora Hat - SM Accessories
Mini Satchel Bag - SM Parisian Shoes and Bags

It was my first time to shop at St. Francis, and I’m actually amazed. There are a lot of good stuff especially for girls. Clothes are very affordable but with quality. Perfect for budgeted fashionista-wanna-be like me. hihi. :)
