If this outfit doesn’t give it away, I don’t know what else would. “Is it your birthday today? You look so fashionably dressed”, exclaimed a store manager from a random store. True enough, I was probably still basking under my after-birthday glow, so to speak. Capped my self-declared birthday weekend with some family time over at Greenbelt; sorely missed malling as I’ve turned into a work-junkie on weekends.
I made my birthday as an excuse to dress up. I know I know, it’s a little too flashy for day wear but we were scheduled for an early dinner anyway. People must think I’m crazy for wearing this in broad daylight while strolling around the mall. Cake topper on the loose, anyone? This outfit has got to be one of my favorites. How can it not be? So there’s pink, corset, drapes, tulle, pearls, glitters and more pink! Argh! I might have died and gone to Barbie heaven.; all my favorite elements in one outfit. I felt like a debutante too, only 4 years late. HAHA
I got the skirt from People Are People branch in Bacolod. I’ve grown to appreciate the store the moment I set foot into their Bacolod branch. I’ve been on the hunt for a drape-y skirt for the longest time and this is just per-fect-ion! I love that it’s pink and made of tulle. I wore this blush zip front corset from Topshop to not stray away from pinkish blush tones. I just adore Topshop corsets and they fit like a glove too! A decent belt could’ve nicely concealed the point of convergence, though.

I accidentally picked this pair of sparkly pumps en route to the airport during my Davao trip a few weeks back. I have a strong affinity for anything sparkly – be it glittered or sequined, and tried this pair out just for the heck of it. It’s probably one of the sweetest mistakes I’ve ever made as I egressed the store a few grands poorer. Why does it have to feel like a Cinderella moment every single time?
Ela (who takes most of my outfit photos, by the way) in Hamptons-chic, Isa in preppy-chic , and me.. well, just tres chic. JOKE! :))
Blowing thank you-kisses to everyone who made me feel extra special on my birthday last Thursday and the days after :) You guys/girls know who you are - and that includes the superb staff of Felix who gave me the cake! I’m putting off my 11.11.11 entry as I failed to have my outfit photos taken, maybe next time! Haha
Oh, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER ISA :) ENJOY YOUR DAY! Her friend Hannah made this video compilation of local fashion bloggers sending their well wishes to Isa on her birthday, which is just waaaaay too cool for life! I’ll see if I can post it here :) à tout à l'heure!
