I’m pretty sure we’ll see more checkered patterns next season, but I’m certainly not wearing them just because they’re currently trendy. My mom has always had a penchant for plaids and checkers, and I’m certain that she passed it on to me. Every time we’d go shopping together, she’d automatically go to either the section where all the black are, or to the section where all the plaids and checkers are. I found myself developing the same habit throughout the years.
I’ve also been very partial to sharp angles and straight lines, etc. (as mentioned here) so this pattern is expected of me and my style. Crissey is the exact opposite - she is drawn to curved lines, and this clearly reflects on her drawing style, as well as on some of her fashion choices. In a way, I guess we are what we wear.
Speaking of Crissey, fate brought us together last Sunday when we coincidentally went to the same store in the same mall at the same time. Neither of us knew each other’s whereabouts so we totally freaked out at what happened. That night, we talked about horror movies (she loves to scare herself, and I also get curious, lol) until we fell asleep. I woke up at exactly 3 AM after an immensely strange dream where I saw Crissey die as she fell into a large gap while we were going down the escalator. In an attempt to find her body, I looked down the gap only to find it pitch black. After a few minutes of mourning because I didn’t know what to do and I really thought she was gone forever, Crissey miraculously found her way back up and immediately told me, in her usual cheery tone, that she fell 21 stories… and that “OMG, Greenhills pala yung nasa baba!" I was dying (lol) of laughter when I relayed the story to my brother. That punchline I can’t even.
Also, I should mention that in my dream, while we were going down the escalator, Crissey was holding a giant squash and a broom. Stop haunting my dreams, witch (of course, the moe magical girl type) Crissey!
And the addiction for bell sleeves and cut-out shoulder details continues with this more-than-adorable pastel dress that I can’t get enough of. Got it in blue as well, in true Tricia fashion where I get the same style in different colors. I don’t know if this dress is still available on the website, but after receiving this in the mail and wearing it, I regret not getting the yellow and green ones too.
Trends come and go, get revived after years or decades, and are often reworked to become more current, less dated. Bell sleeves from the 60s are officially back this spring, but with a more updated feel to them! The 60s has always been one of my favorite eras for fashion, and reviving trends from that time is always a good idea, don’t you think?
Semi-summer dressing. Can you see the effort? I’ve always mentioned that summer is my least favorite season and that it is really not my element to spend all my time at the beach, but that doesn’t stop me from wearing bright and colorful, strictly no-black outfits such as this one! Couldn’t help but throw in a powder blue blazer though, as I can never, ever get over any form of outerwear, especially if it’s in my favorite color.
It’s raining as I type this, and I’m overjoyed that summer is officially over. It’s time to bring out all my knits again!
Today’s outfit is “Today’s Outfit”. Sorry, I couldn’t help it! One of the reasons why I got this top was because I wanted to be able to say today’s outfit is today’s outfit is today’s outfit is today’s outfit. Today’s outfitception. I never want it to end. I have Kryz to thank for this! She wants everyone to know that WAGW MAN’s gonna have a big sale (up to 70% off) starting June 1 which is just a few days away!
You might have also noticed that I have pink and purple streaks on my hair. I recently bought 2 pieces of hair chalk during my trip to Japan at 630yen each (ouch) but @glameffect on Instagram sent me a whole box a few days ago. Don’t know if soft pastels or hair chalk (or if they’re the same anyway), but I like how they make it so fast to add colored streaks to hair now. People really do find ways to achieve things easier. Dried my hair out so bad though, so I just might stick to just Photoshopping fake streaks and ombres in the long run.
Quick post! Clearly, someone had too much fun playing with similar shapes. It’s been a while since I last wore polkadots, and I couldn’t help but pair them with a leatherette skirt with these tiny golden dot studs on them. Maybe I should save this outfit again for the next New Year, in case the dots give me good fortune for 2014. I’m already having a blast this 2013 with all sorts of exciting projects, and I can only wish for more new experiences in the next couple of years. Gotta make that happen!
Got these pants as a present from Pinkaholic some time ago, but only got to wear them now! I took a break from wearing printed bottoms lately as it was starting to become a uniform, but I’m slowly warming up to all these fun patterns again!
This time I dared to wear black and white with brown - something that I’ve never really done before! It weirded me out at first, until I realized that the shoes (which I got at 50% off, btw!) would fit the outfit only if I had a matching brown bag!
