Vintage Levis








Top and skirt: thrifted | Shoes: Fashion 71 | Hat and Vintage Levis: borrowed from boyfriend | 'Nsync bracelet: from boyfriend 

Just trying out the 90s preppy look to see if it works for me. I'm a fan of preppy outfits no matter what decade it is inspired from. I never really enjoyed school fashion because it is practically nonexistent in the schools I studied in. We had uniform in my Catholic elementary and high schools. In college, we had to wear a uniform t-shirt on certain days and on the days when we can wear regular clothes, we weren't allowed to wear anything that might expose our shoulders, thighs and belly so our only option back then was a shirt and a pair of jeans. Blah! 

Seriously, schools tend to squelch their students' creativity. I'm all for wearing decent clothes but it is a bit ridiculous when you aren't allowed to enter the school if the hem of your shirt so much as gives a slight peek of belly skin, which usually happens to me back in college. 

So now, I'm trying to make the most out of the remaining years of my youth by injecting a bit of preppy that I didn't get to enjoy when I was actually young enough and legit enough to enjoy them.

The Levi's denim jacket is from Myk. He said it was originally his mom's so I guess you can say it's vintage. I love it but it's so heavy! T__T. It literally weighs a ton.

And what could be more 90s than an 'Nsync bracelet? If you have been following my instagram (mypeachdays), you probably have seen me posting a tin box full of 'Nsync bracelets that we found at Myk's place! I thought it would be a perfect accessory for today's outfit. :D


Anyhoo. I spent the better part of the weekend at Myk's place. We cooked lots of Korean food. It was my first time making Jajjangmyeon. Not bragging but it was a cinch. Okay, maybe I'm bragging a little, ehe. 

Jajjangmyeon is a Korean (but originated from China, I think) noodle dish with sauce made from black bean paste. It is savory but with a hint of sweetness. The sauce is mixed with cubes of Daikon radish, zucchini, potato, onion and pork belly. I might share the recipe one day when I have the chance to cook it again. 

Little things like spending the weekend with Myk, cooking and eating and watching Running Man really make my existence sweeter.

How was your weekend?

  4. THAT BRACELET THOUGH. I squealed a little bit because of the 90's nostalgia it brought back... I wore a Britney Spears watch every day and it was fabulous. Anyways, loved the outfit and if you ever make that dish again I'd love a recipe!! It looks and sounds delicious :)
