Our family went to the SM 3-day Sale last Sunday. It was one of the few times we had Sunday lunch out. Usually, we just stay home.
I was supposed to wear this black shirt with a turquoise skirt from Susto Manila, but my mom said the length was awkward and that it made me look like a mom. I was horrified when I heard that, so I immediately changed.
This is what I came up with.
In school, if I can't think of anything to wear, this is my go-to outfit.
Gray cardigan from my friends || black tee from my grandmother || jeans (again!) ||
black and white striped flats|| ever present cross necklace from my grandmother
I think it is no-fuss, stylish and very pang-college girl!
We were inside Surplus Shop, when my sister and I spotted this red coat. Oh, love!
I have always wanted one, since high school. I have always lusted over the ones at Mango, but I didn't plan on buying the coat cause I live in a tropical country, plus it costs too much! Oh, but the cloth was so plush and *sigh*
Amazingly, my mom bought this coat. Not only was it a steal, but the cloth wasn't that thick, so I could still wear the coat come Christmas (or to the mall if I wanted to), when it gets colder. I love it! It reminds me of Kate Middleton, I mean, Duchess Catherine.
Oh yeah, the title is '2 in 1' cause I was able to somehow create two looks with a set of basic pieces. Haha. Also, when we were eating lunch, the restaurant played Spice Girls' '2 Become 1'! I remember being in 1st grade and singing that song for a class presentation. It's funny cause I didn't know then that song was about sex! =))
So anyway, right now that I finally got my red coat, I am on the look out for the perfect (and cheap) navy blue blazer! And yes, I have been looking for one since high school--since Gossip Girl debuted!
What are you searching for now? The perfect heel, jean, tee? Oh yeah, and how do you rework your basics? I'd love to hear your ideas! xx
