Gawad 2013

Dress: Thrifted, Bag: Dooney and Bourke, Shoes: CLN

Another year has passed and my sister has yet again bagged medals for the past two semesters for being a Dean's lister in their department. I am really proud of her. She always gives Mom what I can never give. hahaha. 

Now, lemme tell you about this outfit. This dress was actually the fourth I've tried on before going to the actual event. I always plan and get my outfit ready the night before every event I attend to, the problem comes when the weather didn't went the way I expected to, or my friends/workmates suddenly changes their mind last minute whether we're going for the all-out or laid-back peg for events. When the uneventful comes, I tend to cram and can't decide which dress or set of clothes to wear. 

In this particular event, the reason was because of problem no.1. Imagine someone wearing a tube dress with a vest and matching white wedges walking in the rain, I don't want that to happen to me, so I tried my luck. I believe the odds were in my favor because I've got a lot of compliments that day.

I chose this dress because the simplest detail gives this semi-formal vibe which is perfect for the event. The bold color given with a hint of neon green and yellow makes it look fun but still classy at the same time. I toned down the color by wearing nude colored sandals that I have my eye on for months. Luckily last Wednesday, I ran out of contacts solution and when I head to the mall to buy one and passed by CLN with an eye catching cardboard sign outside the store that all their items are on sale, I just grabbed that opportunity. Booyeah! Talk about shoes meant for me. People might find it weird but I have this relationship with my shoes that they're all my destiny for fitting me perfectly. Sshhhh! *Doing Aria's pose in PLL* (Yes, Imma PLL fan. Have you guys watched the latest ep? Next week is going to be the spring finale ep. Exciting!)

As for my hair, I went for the no.1 best solution for a frizzy hair, which is the french braid. I experimented with it by directing it sideways. 

Le hairstyle. The ultimate bad hair day solution

Anyhoo, I'm goin to leave you guys with pictures after the event.

Birthday Suit

So I just turned twenty two a few weeks ago and my official theme song for the year is 22 by Taylor Swift.hahahhaha. Anyway, I've celebrated it with a few from my Diamond fam (my HS classmates) and my relatives on both sides. I've worn this galaxy dress I have been wanting to have ever since. I got this dress from Koreana Shop a month before my actual birthday. I got really excited when I saw  this that I decided to buy and reserve it even if I haven't seen the price yet. Yes. I was that excited. I actually paired it with my glitter oxfords that I also called birthday shoes here since I'd look silly walking around the house wearing this 6in.wedges but ought to use it for the sake of my lookbook post. Scored these wedges on sale with free shipping from the oh-so-famous Asianvogue Shop.

I really had fun celebrating my birthday with them. Since, I have been missing most of them a lot for we are always busy with either work or school. Soo sad not all my former classmates who said yes was able to attend. *ehem,ehem. You know who you guys are*

Anyhow, I now leave you guys with pictures my sister and my cousin managed to take during this special day.

Birthday Prep

Celebrated my birthday weeks ago. I've decided to throw a themed party and chose a Birthday Tea Party theme. I know that you guys are thinking about the Alice in Wonderland-ish, mad hatter thing but ended up with just an ordinary merienda party with a few friends. Another fail for me. I was planning to buy individually packed milk teas but I ran out of time. Yes another fail excuse apparently. hahhaha.

But, I did went all out with decorations. Stayed 'til 2 am putting all of it up (including inflating balloons). I  actually made the floral curtains and rose pomander weeks before. And as I have mentioned in this post, I made beaded kitty ears headbands for my friends. Never thought party planning and executing it alone was that hard. Next time I'll just order pizza and watch DVD with friends. Less hassle. >'_'<
