Among my latest spring/summer Lookbook posts, a rogue fall/winter-inspired outfit appears! This was taken just after I dyed my hair darker, so I was in the mood to leave my florals and pastels for a while. Missed this?
I’m off to the US in a while for vacation! I’ll be queueing posts so my blog won’t die while I’m away! I will try my best to make new posts every night. Work never stops when you’re me!
Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ) actually came out the same year I was born! It’s admirable how timeless most Ghibli films have become. People of all ages still know them by heart decades after the films came out, and the characters have also become pop culture icons in their own right.
Sadly, I wasn’t able to go to the Ghibli museum in Japan last March. The tickets sold out so early and so fast! *cry* I’ll make it happen one day. In the meantime, I’ll probably just ogle at the pretty merchandise in Donguri Republic (a Ghibli-themed store in Hong Kong).
What’s your favorite Studio Ghibli film? Mine is a tie between Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. My first Ghibli film was super depressing though. I don’t think my heart can handle watching Grave of the Fireflies again. After the ending, I had to watch the first scene again just so I can have proper closure, lol.
So in love with this off-shoulder leotard that perfectly matches every item from my extensive skirt collection. The torso length is too long for me, however. I might as well cut the crotch area up and turn it into a regular top. Cue hashtag shorttorsoproblems.
This summer, off shoulder tops are my best bet to not looking too covered-up like I usually do. I’m not entirely averse to wearing things that show a lot of skin - I mean, I definitely wear a lot of short skirts. But balancing them out with conservative tops with long sleeves definitely make me feel more comfortable.
Statement on my top aside, here’s a sweet spring/summer outfit that I wore to a weekend out with my family. I’ve been favoring flat shoes or low heels recently, and I think it’s all because of Le Bunny Bleu’s influence. Their S/S 14 collection is perfect in every way - I had the hardest time choosing what to pick because I had about 5 different pairs that I really wanted to add to my shoe collection.
Ultimately, I chose this pair of oxfords in white, even though the black version was the first one to catch my eye. I have way too many black shoes already, and I believe that white shoes are going to be very trendy in the next couple of months. While most people aim to have abs this summer, I aim to simply lessen the amount of black I wear on a daily basis, lol.
My 2nd choice from the collection was a pair of pastel pink oxfords. Now that I think about it, I should’ve already bought it when I was in the store last week. When you buy 2 pairs from the S/S 14 collection, you can get a free Le Bunny Bleu stuffed toy!
They also launched a new LeBunny Bleu Lovers Discount Card! Customers who purchase any amount in the store will be given a stamp card. Each stamp card has 20 stamps (P500 value each with a total value of P10,000) which must be completed within 1 year.
Once you complete it, the card can guarantee a lifetime discount of 10% for cash and 5% off for credit card purchases. Exclusive promotions and sneak peek of new collections will also be granted to holders of the card.
As an added bonus, the first 10 who will get a card will also receive a special LeBunny Bleu Manila canvas tote.
Visit them at 5th floor Bridgeway, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).
Told you I’d get this skirt in all colors! I’ve worn the blue and purple versions before, and I recently got the red and green ones to complete my collection. If it works, don’t let go. I held on to it so strongly, I had to keep myself from wearing these skirts everyday like some sort of uniform.
Way to go, Sailor Moon dreams.
