This is what I wore to an errand filled Saturday, activities which include my monthly dental appointment, getting cakes for my parents (whose birthdays fall four days from each other!), and a cousin’s debut party. I styled up the usual cropped top and high waist short combo by deliberately wearing the overlap skirt from Ripples by Jenny backwards, then pushed it further by changing up the way I secure the straps of my sandals from Wundermode Clothing to make a criss-crossed pattern. I believe it’s little details like these that make an outfit unique, or if not, could probably score me brownie points for being able to show the world my OC side. Heh.

Some days ago I woke up to the voice of my Grandmother asking if I was already awake. This would have been okay, if my Grandmother hadn’t passed more than a year ago. So as I was jolted into consciousness and the joy that is sleep slowly crept away, that was when I realized it was my other grandmother, who after finally being able to rouse me out of sleep, began giving me all sorts of vintage goodies - one of which was this purse that contained a very interesting (not to mention huge) one peso coin from 1972. A few hours later I went to her house to borrow some hangers for my booth at the Bazaar For All Season, and that was where I got gifted with the magic that was in the form of twenty year old lace tops and dresses (which she designed and sewed by herself)

I wore one to the second day of the Bazaar. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen this material in clothes being sold in malls nowadays. Wouldn’t it be nice if they did?
