I love the look of fashionable clothes and sometimes imagine myself on the red carpet at the premier of a star-studded event. I know the first thing I would do if I ever got invited to such a premier is shop online at a fabulous store where the stars shop for their opening night appearances. Actually, a real star would have their stylist do the shopping for them, and sit back and wait for them to present beautiful gowns, shoes, jewelry and accessories for them to choose from. Depending on what I would be invited to, I could even have the top designers coming to me, hoping I’d agree to wear their new designs on the red carpet, and bring attention to their couture wear. I can just imagine my picture in the paper, smiling at the camera as I’m whisked down the carpet, refusing to answer their nosy questions about the breakup of my latest fling. Oh, a girl can dream.
Even without a glam squad, I know I’d find everything I need to make me red-carpet ready at Saks Fifth Avenue. They have been dressing the biggest stars in Hollywood for decades. They carry clothes by the big design houses. And I love the shoes they sell. Stuart Weitzman is one of my favorite designers. His shoes are sexy and chic, just like me, LOL! I can pair his stilettoes with a glamorous look like something young and flirty by Stella McCartney. Have you seen that dress with the extra-long fringe? I’d rock that in red any day of the week. And that little sequined number with the straps crossed in the back would keep heads turning all night.
The great thing about all these looks is that I can get them for less by applying a Groupon to my purchase. I could go crazy for a deal on cute little booties to pair with my fishnet pantyhose, or save 60% off selected merchandise. And best of all, the items would ship for free. If I got a sweet deal like that, I’d have a lot to smile about on the red carpet. And when they ask me what I’m wearing, I’d say “Groupon!”
Yes, that is right! We just got back from our short Philippine holiday. We did not let the rare opportunity pass and we made sure that we were able to watch them live on stage before we headed back to Sydney.
I seem to have a penchant for black and white theme lately. My social media presence will prove that as I have been filtering photos to make it look black and white. I just find it nice and a bit different from my usual.
Today however, I didn’t do much alterations as my ensemble was black and white. I felt like wearing something funky so I thought a knee-length socks will do the trick; tunic with a thick jumper on top of it completed the whole ensemble.
The paparazzi in the form of my husband went to work undetected; he kept on taking snaps in all angles at every single opportunity. I should have known. Lol! 😂
I fancied taking a shameless selfie sporting the sunnies that was generously given to me as a present by a dear great blogpal on my birthday last year. I “felt” beautiful when I was staring back at myself in between snaps. This sunnies must have some magic on it. Lol!
Three months of brutal cold winter chill had past. It was the coldest in 16 years in our neck of the woods. Now I am up for Cozy Winters Review before I look forward for a beautiful, hot summer.
What I love about winter is the cozy outfits- trench and leather jackets, ankle boots, long boots, scarves and the like. We couldn’t get to sport this kind of outfits had it not been for the cold season winter brings.
I am your tropical kind of girl but I warmly welcome winter for all the reasons stated above.
It’s nearly two months since my last update here. I find it fitting to publish something old if only to keep this blog thriving. LOL!
This is an old dress of mine which became a favorite outfit going to work. It came especially handy pre and post pregnancy. And believe it or not, I also wore it till the seventh month of my pregnancy. That’s how functional this dress was for me.
It’s almost a month since I returned to work. I have not overhauled my wardrobe. I still heavily relied on my old clothing which only means I really need to shed off some pounds so I could wear them again. Lucky most of my clothes are made from stretchable fabrics, otherwise I would not be able to wear them at all. And READ: most of them were my clothes from the Philippines.
I never shopped here as much as I did in the Philippines. But when my son was born, I mostly shopped for him.
When I was 20 weeks pregnant, no pair of shoes would ever fit me. My swelling had gotten worse. It was so frustrating to say the very least. I kept looking around for one that could be comfortable for a pregnant woman like me that had ballooned triple times.
After a number of frustrating tries at various shops, I’ve finally found one for me to use at our Year-end Thanksgiving at Church. I was told not to wear high heels so a low heeled-shoes was a sound and wise option.
It proved to be useful and comfortable now as I speak 3 months post-childbirth.
