Gliteratti + A Valentine’s Sale
Last weekend, my boyfriend and I had a little shoot at a nearby sports complex. It was a good thing that the place was quite deserted. It made us feel comfortable to take these photos and for me to get away with being awkward in front of the cam at times.
It’s been a while since I used this blouse. Hurhur.It’s just, I don’t know.. Too dressy? Look those sequins, man. SEQUINS. O.O Maybe I’ ll just use it again for another formal occasion. This was bought at SM Department Store- at 50% off. That was such a steal so yeah, I just had to take it home.
The perfect pair ankle strap heels are so hard to find. *rolls eyes* Whenever I scouted for one, those that I see were either: with straps too thin, having a heel height that is too high for me to walk on, unflattering, or out of stock. Huhuhu.
I guess seeing this baby at Capital Vice is such a stroke of luck! Honestly, I chanced upon this already maybe a month or two ago, but was hesitant to buy. I must be saving up for something else that time or weighed if it was just an impulse buy or not. Fast forward to today, that exact same pair is still there. I love how the heel is low and the cut is just right. Yay! maybe it was meant to be. An issue that I have though is the material: Suede.
I hate hate hate suede. It’s such a b**** to clean. It doesn’t help that I am always gravitating to shoes styles in this kind of material. -.- Oh well, that’s life.

On a different note, Valentine’s day is just around the corner! Gasp! Have you already planned your surprise or gift to that special someone? It’s about high time to be mushy mushy and all. Hihihi.
Since this is a momentous occasion for you (Yes, you.) lovebirds. I think it is but an obligation to look our best. Girl, Persunmall would be a great help with regards to that, specially if you are into online shopping. Wait, there’s more. They are holding a Valentine Sale for selected items up to 50% off. High five!
For those who are currently single , don’t fret. This may have been said 1000x times but for sure, this is true: True love waits. It will come when you least expect it. Cheer up! Buy gorgeous clothes and be fabulous! Who knows, maybe “he” may spot you one of this days. At least look your best. ;)
Moving forward, here are some of my top picks for your reference:
Daamn, I wish I could get this for myself. Unfortunately, I am living in a tropical country. Hahaha! I love how deep/ox blood red-ish this trench coat is. <3 Hmm, maybe I should call this Valentine’s red instead? Naah, I’m blabbing too much. But seriously, if you live in a constantly cold city, go grab ‘em.
This is a no-brainer choice because it’s black and white. Hello? It’s goes well with anything! Also, I am a sucker for being OC with my stuff. The compartment in front makes reaching for small things such as lipstick, pen et. al. hassle free . I think I have to partner this with the red Valentine trenchcoat.
There’s only one thing that came to my mind when I saw this:
Bomber jacket!!!!! I am having a hard time in looking for one within my area. Well, I saw one last December. It was actually pretty affordable but the prints are not that pretty enough. :( I think this item is perfect with all those floral prints and the color.
Hmm, that’s about it. I hope I was able to help you a bit there. Happy shopping! Enjoy the rest of the week and your V-day. I hope he surprises you big time. :b
Pre-Midnight Iphone Monologues
I cannot stress enough how happy I am to finally do a breakthrough and muster up the courage to splurge on the “right things” at my early twenties. Woot woot.
Maybe this isn’t a biggie for trufax rich kids out there (You, lucky people). However, for an average yuppie who works her butt off 9-5/Monday-Friday, I guess I deserve a pat in the back for finally being able to invest on something with my hard-earned cash. A top of mind priority is my Iphone 5S. Yup. Go big or go home.
WHY IT’S TIME TO UPGRADE TO AN IPHONE:
1. YOURS TRULY IS ADDICTED TO THE INTERNET.- I need something to entertain me. All the time. I am guilty of leeching wifi at malls/coffee shops whenever there is a chance before. Hahaha! What the heck. Shoutout to Glorietta for being my free wifi mecca.
Also, my dorm is bordering to boring at times. Whenever I don’t have any plans with friends/workmates/boyfriend to hang out, I’d rather curl up and check Twitter or watch Youtube on my bed than stare into nothingness.
2. ALL MY PREVIOUS PHONES WERE VERY OUTDATED. - Yep, those Nokia phones and all. I *tried* lowering my costs by purchasing a second hand Blackberry. Unfortunately, it had an untimely death in less then a year! Goddamnit. I was just thankful that my boyfriend lent me his old phone that’s why I still had a connection to the world.
3. IN DIRE NEED OF A GOOD CAMERA- So, why didn’t I just get an SLR or something? Naah. I’m kind of leaning towards a mirrorless cam but I will purchase one once I have funds already. Huhuhu. Anyways, I’m digressing..
(Me trying Iphoneography)
Being a fan of anything multi-functional, I want my phone to be a very convenient companion in keeping up with primarily Lookbook and blog posts. Also, being able to snap random photos and moments with other people is a close second. I am trying my best to be able to update my portals as often as I have done before (circa 2011, pre-working girl days).
4. OMG. GAMES, MAN. - God, it sucked so bad when I can only play games like Candy Crush or Zombie Tsunami on someone else’s phone before. :( (Honestly, I don’t play so much anymore now)
5. INSTAGRAM!!!!! - To the creator of this app/SNS, you da bomb. <3
6. HELP. I AM DISORGNIZED.- Oh god. I am so SO bad in remembering birthdays. If I can sync that Facebook friends detail in my gadget or get an app that does so, life becomes easier. Also, I need to track my to-do lists and reminders more efficiently.
7. I AM A SLAVE OF CONSUMERISM.- Enough said. Aren’t we all?
Oops, yup, so far that’s about it. Notice all those gifs? I guess I have been reading a ton of Buzzfeed articles lately. Oh well. :| Hahaha.
Now, what will my next big purchase be? Well, one thing is for sure- it’s going to take some time but it will definitely be worth it.

A List Inspiration: Your Evil Twin
Gaaah. I am always in awe whenever I see the instagram/tumblr of these two. Being under the spell and awesomeness makes me want to have an equally cool twin too. I mean.. LOOK AT THOSE PHOTOS MAN. (Also, I want someone whom I can count on in doing the same interest a.k.a. vain stuff. Hahaha. It’s quite a hassle when you have to drag someone ex: my mother/sister to just take OOTDs. In addition, it’s a bit awkward. :b)
Anyway, An and En Estrada are the twins behind the blog Your Evil Twin. They are pretty known for shooting in polaroid/film and wandering all around the world. I am actually amused at how they make any snapshot look interesting and vintage. Also, they are equally as photogenic as their subjects.
To get a glimpse of what I’m talking about and to have other instagram people worth following visit their profiles (where I got the photos) at @tracianne / @trasienne. <3
Giordano leather jacket, Celine sandals, Charles & Keith bag, Corset top from Landmark, Skater Skirt from a bazaar.
Finally, the much-loved and anticipated month is here (December, Decembrrr or Decemblur. Whichever you like)! The weather is reminiscent of these photos from a Tagaytay trip last November. My siblings, nephew, sister’s boyfriend and I went out for a dose of joy ride.
This set was shot at Mushroom Burger (with a funny yet witty Mcdonalds-ish counter display). Outside, there was this motorcycle parking slot at a far corner adorned with pretty hanging white flowers. I just had to get my pictures taken there. #vainproblems
Moving on to what I wore, my leather jacket is the perfect armor for the chilly wind. I have always wanted to get one so this pick from Giordano is a great choice. Also, corset + skater skirt (yes, I am jumping into that skirt bandwagon) seems to be a no-brainer combo for me nowadays. It is a lazy dressing cheat that will still make you look put-together.
As you may have noticed, I have been tinkering some parts of my blog little by little. Finally, I had the energy to update this space again. I just got an Iphone 5s recently so I guess I have no excuse to not update on a regular basis. Hahaha.
Crossing my fingers that my last quarter of 2013 onwards would be nothing short of awesomeness, cyberspace and real-life wise. Tata!
It was just one laidback Sunday. We tried using the camera of my sister’s Samsung Mega to take these shots. Impromptu much? Definitely.
I just pulled off whatever it is that I can use as an outfit post.I came up with the usual tutu thingy. (Urgh, note to self: Girl, you are not a ballerina and in your mid 20’s. Give those kind of frilly things a break!). Yep, that’s me talking to myself on being a more mature dresser.Hahaha.
What I like the most here is that I finally have a corset top! Woot woot. Although I am not well “gifted” up there, I think that this thing suits me to a tee. Look at those pretty prints! *u* Props to Landmark for fab and affordable finds.
I would have opted for brown shoes but decided to just go for black booties instead. It somehow mellows down the “girliness” of the look. My bag is quite an old one from Charles & Keith. As for the accessories, I am currently obsessed with this sparkly bracelet. It seems to be peppered with gemstones that turn iridescently blue or green. Nice find!
Please bear with the randomness of this post. It’s only now that I got to have time in Tumblri-ng. Will just cap off this OOTD with an annoyingly pa-cute photo. Toodles! :b
