Brace yourself for a barrage of photos.
I got carried away with the amount of photos I have posted. Pardon me. I'm redundant like that. And I'm just such a sucker for slightly overexposed photos.
Anyway this is supposedly my Valentines day style post. Although V-day is still a couple of days away, I have already contrived with the boyfriend to make a Valentines day-inspired mini shoot. I lugged around this cutesy mini vintage-inspired satchel and donned a cloche hat I got from our recent Baguio trip. The satchel was so dreamy I just had to have it.
I did away with the hat and satchel when Myk and I went out. But even then, I got more than a couple of weird stares that annoyed me to no end. Sometimes I wish it was the 50's or 60's again. Despite the war, a lot of people really made a conscious effort to dress up. Sometimes I wish it was like that in my little town. It would make me happy to see ladies wearing dresses a lot more often and with pretty coifs to match.
When I was in school, I never really had the opportunity to dress up that much. Aside from the dresscodes that pretty much hampered the progress of school fashion, there was also my low self-esteem to deal with. I never really had the confidence to wear pretty dresses. Without fail, I was always clad in the basics - jeans, shirts, sneakers, the whole nine yards. So I can forgive myself for being overly fastidious these days.
Dressing up does not even have to bust the bank. Most of my clothes are from thrift shops (hope this disputes any idea of this being an elitist blog). Most of my ensembles do not cost more than 200 hundred pesos. I'm a cheapskate when it comes to clothes.
So anyway, what are your plans for Valentines day?
PS: I'm going to put a damper to the saccharine sweetness of the above-posted photos and say that they were taken in a memorial park. The ghosts approved.
