If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends

Dear blog, I’m embedding these images in your humble pages as a testament of the weekend that was. Then one day, I can take a trip down memory lane and remember that crazy night when my alcohol limit was put to the test, when I unknowingly bruised my car, nearly seduced a random vendor into giving us free chips, plotted blind dates, passed out in Kamille’s couch and chipped in only 50Pesos for all that drink I shoved down my throat. I have amazing friends. That night remains a blur. But I do have patches of memories involving unzipping of garments, Ibyang taking my blackmail-worthy photos, drunk-dialing prospect drivers and the girls talking about the details of their juicy love lives. Oh boy why did I have to miss that last part? Merde
I guess I'm notorious for overdressing. This would've been ideal for a fancier night-out/dinner date or Philippine Fashion Week, but not for a small town girl like me. This outfit deserves a lone spotlight so I'm saving the write up for another entry. Currently obsessing over this tribal print bustier from the Fashion Against Aids collection so I'll be wearing this over and over and over. Oh, I forced my sister into lending me this gorgeous maxi skirt from her friends Danielle and Regine's online shop. And I would also like to thank Dean 's sister-in-law for the necklace I bought that same day. Haha It sure became an integral part of my outfit.
PS. Friends, mag twitter na kasi kayo.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Grand Central Station and step on it dah-ling! 
Mom’s day at Dad’s plus Ascott for the night for majority of my family. Sucks I had to go home in the wee hours of the night to get enough rest for Monday’s hustle. Vintage on vintage feel hence the Breakfast at Tiffany’s spiel earlier. If you haven’t seen this classic, I strongly suggest you do. If you don’t get it the first time, it’s fine; I had to watch it five times before I understood Holly was a happy-go-lucky social butterfly who sort of gold-dug her way around NYC. Anyway, I absolutely adore this black vintage lace dress I got from Looking for Lola at half the price. Added a final classic touch with this vintage Chanel classic flap of my grandmum.

That is our suite and below is a cheap thrill of mine. My favorite lengua estofado from Cucina. (Only in Glorietta food court.)
I haven’t fully regained my blogging mojo and I’m not into publishing anything half-baked but this should do it for now. I’m a very busy woman and I haven’t got all day to blab. Ta ta

Let's Have Some Fun This Beat is Sick

Don't be a drag just be a queen.

Studs, leather, spikes, blonde wigs, leather, latex and glitters.. The attraction, no doubt about it, was the Lady Gaga Concert! The Born this Way Ball is the perfect venue to dress over-the-top without being judged so you can probably imagine the crowd: a plethora of Sartorialist-worthy glam fashionistas! 

PS. HI KAREN :) Thanks for the 1st photo!! Nice seeing you! I MISSED YOU!

For weeks I’ve been letting my imagination run wild with sparkly poufy skirts, sequined jackets, velvet dresses, etc.  Dressing to fit in, or stand out is always a choice. On the last minute I ditched all plans and let comfort take center stage once and for all. I’m so glad my mom got me this skater dress which instantly solved my outfit dilemma. I just threw in this overused blazer from Glitterati which always come to the rescue of any boring outfit. 
 I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.
The Born this Way Ball was the perfect venue to kickstart my youngest sister Ela’s 18th birthday week. As expected, Lady Gaga killed it on stage. I got chills the moment the curtain dropped, exposing a huge castle. It was overall strange, a bit disturbing but undoubtedly beautiful all rolled into one spectacle of magical proportions! Don’t hate, appreciate.

I have nothing but respect for Lady Gaga as an artist. If her performance doesn’t spell passion, I don’t know what else would. She gave it her all. It’s very sad how these so-called religious groups judge her over one song. One act does not necessarily speak for her as an artist. Besides, we're all entitled to express our own ideas, no matter how bizarre they may be. Ok, I got grossed out by that huge birthing-scene during the opening of Born This Way, but hey, it’s one way to look at it. Haha You gotta give credits to the woman who gave birth to the idea. Here’s to you Mother Monster for painting the music scene with your creativity. Truly you’re one of the greatest performers of this generation.

Oooh there ain't no other way
Baby you were born this way
Ela you were born this daaaay! :)

HAPPY 18th ELA! 

-Love, Ate

Star Spangled Fantasy


Throw in some Uggs and I’d pass for a sell-out reality star doing her rounds in the grocery on a Saturday. Can’t help feeling inspired by all the laid back, boho dressing showcased by Coachella attendees. (aminin, nakakainspire talaga ang mga suot ng mga attendees!) Common factor? Skin, sheer, shorts, boots, flowers, swimwear and did I mention skin? Lots of ‘em! It’s as if showing your belly is a sine qua none to your presence. Times like these, hipster fashion is taking center stage but before you start singing Faux-chella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh allow me to elaborate more on my outfit.

Hemlines are reaching for the skies as the season marches on. This pair of American flag printed hotpants from Topshop is the perfect go-to denim if you want to stay away from the conventional denim cut offs. I love how it looks so laid back with the distressed hem and faded print as if it has aged beautifully (when in fact it’s my first time to wear them out). From Plain Jane to GI Jane

Headed to the Country Club for a round of Tennis and Bowling with my family on Labor Day. Yes, you read that right. Little Miss Sedentary right here suddenly came to her senses and decided to try out something completely new- sports! 2012 is boasting of its long list of "firsts", I am so proud of myself. Oh, please don't judge my bowling score, I was a lot better on the Tennis court than I was on the Bowling Alley. I tell you. 

I still take crappy blog photos. Heeeh
Ciao! Confining myself to Starvation Nation right about..NOW!
