Someday, I'd Name My Daughter Willow


Listen To Steal His Heart by Emily and The Woods while reading on
























































































What I wore to my nephew's christening. The original plan was to borrow some of the balloon decorations and use them as props. I tied them to my bag, left them for a while and they were gone when I came back. I never got to figure out what happened to them although witnesses said the knot unraveled and the balloons flew off.

This dress is the reason why I endured the summer heat today. Everyone's probably wondering how I'm faring in my long-sleeved dress in the scorching weather. But when I saw this vintage dress in the thrift store rack, I knew I had to have it and wear it no matter what the weather conditions are. Peter pan collar and polka dots? Just 200 pesos? I was sold.

It was originally a shin-length dress. When I tried it on first, my cousin told me i look like "lumang tao" (old person). It's a resounding compliment to my ears. :) I didn't want to cut the sleeves shorter so i left it as it is and just adjusted the length. Used my thrifted vintage bag and added bow hair accessory to complete the look. 

Also, if you've noticed my blog titles usually don't have anything to do with my blog posts. This one's not an exception. Are you guys also having as much trouble coming up with blog post titles as me? And oh, I really do like the name Willow. Since I can't change my name, I'd like to name my future daughter Willow. And maybe add another name. Like Summer. How does Willow Summer sound?

And her sister would be named Poppy Autumn.

So how are you guys spending your weekend? I really do want to know. 

PS: Sorry for the sweat-drenched hair tendrils.

    1. I super wish! It would have been awesome!

      The dress was pretty long so I cut it around the waist. I cut the upper (narrow) part of the skirt and attached the lower part (the wider one with the star fish pattern) to the top part of this dress. The lower part was wider so i bunched it up a bit to fit the upper part. It created a nice puffed up skirt! :)
