New In


الشفاء قد لا تأتي بسرعة، ولكن سوف يأتي.
“Healing may not come quickly, but it will come.”

I was recently taken thrift shopping by ate Khai Nunag and the rest of my co-PFB members. We all kept holding things up, then going "____ this is so you!" Hahaha. I've never actually tried it before. It was a lot of fun going through racks of clothing, looking for something that tickled my fancy. :-)

My goal was to complete an entire outfit that was thrifted, which I successfully did. I got a Christmas-y sweater for php60 (US$1.50), a velvet skirt for php75 (US$1.80), and the shoes pictured above for php250 (US$6.15). All in all, it cost me php380 which is about US$10.

At first, I was pretty reluctant to buy anything, but I'm really glad I did. Most of the people I know wouldn't be caught dead in thrift stores, and some might even make fun of me for it, but I find that there is nothing wrong with thrifting! It is a really good way to save money, and you don't have to worry about having the same things as everyone else. Plus, you can go DIY crazy on the things you buy, so...

The shoes pictured above remind me a lot of Alexander Wang. I just about squealed the moment I laid my eyes on them! They fit me perfectly, too, as if they were custom made. Scoooooooooore. Expect an outfit post featuring all of the items I got really soon, and possibly a thrifting vlog (because a lot of people on twitter asked for it). :-)

Oh, and those are most of my bracelets. I organized them all today, but some are missing. I rarely get to wear all of them, so I might sell them on Indiestructible. :-) 'Til the next post!

P.S.: My dad got me the newest Macbook Pro with the retina display! It is so beautiful! /Apple Geek
P.P.S: I made a new playlist! You can download it here.

  2. Your shoes remind me of Alexa Chung for some reason (yes I'm trying to learn about fasyown~ little by little haha) and your bracelets remind me that I really need to buy more accessories but I can't because I'm broke. Haha.

    Looking forward to those bracelets in Indiestructible! :)
