Extra Terrestrial


Let’s bid September an extra terrestrial goodbye with the rising of this galaxy skirt from the deepest corner of my closet. So… How’s your September so far? I hope you it’s an awesome month for you as it is for me! I could be a little bias here because it’s my birthday month, and for my husband as well, but really, this month is just full of blessings and surprises and I couldn’t be more grateful in my life!

So as I kiss September goodbye, I decided to go edgy and dark and sweet… I wish I could show you more about my look today, but some things are just bound to fail. Like? My hair… I “colored chalk” my hair with green, but can you see a single hint of color in it? Nada=( A slimy highlight would have been cute, I guess this is a lesson learned that chalks only work on blackboards and not in the hair, lol! But I think I did a good job though pairing this cute H & M “NYC Never Sleeps” shirt and my vintage galaxy skirt… And next time when I get to wear this shirt again, I would show you the magnificent side view of this low cut sleeve top =)

Retro ♥


I was tossing around if I’ll do a post today or not, obviously I did. I know it’s kinda selfish when I am talking about my OOTD while the rest of my family is mourning for the death of my granny just yesterday. Believe me, it’s difficult for me too, though we’re not really that close with my granny, I feel really sad for my pa who’s suffering the most at this time.

So this retro style right now is dedicated to my granny who loves midi skirts more than anyone do, and believe me, she’s an authentic retro lover (by age).

Sequencing of these photos might just tell you a bit of a story. And the story goes like this- I just got out from the powder room, then I took a jar of water and get a bowl of fruits and put it in the table, and every time I do these stuffs, I have to stop for a while so that my sister can take these photos, lol! This is not even my kitchen to begin with. Anyway, I’m all about mixing prints today with my zebra prints head tie, to my stripes top down to my leafy midi skirt. Mixing prints can be very outrageous and absurd, to keep it low key, it’s best to go monochrome and stick to a common color just like black and white. Tell me if you love the way I mixed prints today =)
