T.G.I.F!

Standard

Today was such a fun Friday that I feel like talking about it here! πŸ˜€ Everyone was more relaxed and smiling and having fun.

In addition to the little elephant puppet my officemate Richelle gave me some days ago, another officemate, Mark, gave me a stuffed monkey. πŸ˜€ I named him Nick J cause Mark claimed he looked like Nick Jonas. :))

 

 

Since Mia is my officemate now, we decided to try going out for lunch today. πŸ˜€ We decided on going to an Italian restaurant called Amici which wasn’t too far from our buildings. We ordered Pizza Margherita & Arancini. Both were sooo good! πŸ˜€ We were so happy our cravings were finally satisfied! Pardon the photo quality, my phone isn’t that good hehe!

 

After lunch, we had an intense brisk walk back to the office because we thought our bosses needed us already! We were feeling panicky but laughed it off when we got there because it turns out the matters we needed to attend to weren’t so urgent. :)) We went through the day having fun ourselves with our friends and officemates and were glad our load was lighter than usual. πŸ˜€ I went home with Mia and had dinner with her sister and lola, they were having camaron! My favorite. How lucky. :> All in all it was a great day!

And just cause I rarely ever do this and feel like it, here’s my outfit today:

 

I love Fridays especially because we get to dress down and be casual. πŸ˜€ Today I decided to wear my aztec pattern printed top from our family friend Tita Bardotte. I love how it kept me warm in the office! The cut was also unusual and I liked that. I wore it with a grey spaghetti strap top under because it was a bit short. I wore my rust-colored pants from Mango with them because the color matched some of those on my top. πŸ˜› For shoes I went with my usual Topshop flats with studded bows, which I matched with the ring and earring I wore. I said ‘earring’ because on the other ear I wore a rabbit earring. πŸ˜€ Yay!

Aaand that ends this week!

More Fridays to come,

Bo-hello!

Standard

Okay I meant the title to be a clever variation of the word ‘boho’ but alas it’s not as clever as I thought it was. :)) Anyway! I was so amused and very much liked what Mia and I wore to our reunion with our busmates so I’m doing another outfit post. πŸ˜€ (Also I did say I’d post what I ended up wearing! :D) So here goes!

Our busmates fondly call us ‘twins’ because we were always together and we were best friends/sisters. Our outfits reflected that I think. Haha! πŸ˜€

Mia was wearing a black racerback, a kimono cover-up from F&H, jeans, and flats from The Little Things She Needs πŸ™‚

I was wearing a black embroidered top and striped blue-green skirt from Greenhills and strappy beaded sandals from F21 πŸ™‚

We also both wore matching eagle necklaces from F21! πŸ™‚

Dream Dresses

Standard

Last weekend, I was given some champagne-colored chiffon cloth by a bride-to-be to have made into my dress for her upcoming wedding I am to attend. Since then, I’ve been scouring the web for designs to put together to make my own. My personal taste at the moment is very ethereal I think. I like flowing materials, details on sheer, and similar stuff. That being said, I’ve decided I favor three designers at the moment. I’ve always admired Elie Saab‘s designs since famous celebrities wear them to award shows and such. Another one I’ve come to like is Zuhair Murad. He has amazing detail especially in his recent designs! And lastly, I like Veejay Floresca because he has the same eye for detail as the first two. πŸ˜€ I’ll post samples of their dresses below! Opinions? Tell me. πŸ˜€

xoxo,

Lena

Here are a couple of dresses from Veejay Floresca (I like his inspiration and how it looks on the dresses!):

Elie Saab (I love the fairy-like dresses):

Zuhair Murad (The flowy material attracted me, as well as the details, esp the tattoo looking dress!):

Discovering Pixlr Express and/or Outfit Post Attempt

Standard

After falling in love with Pixlr‘s O-matic, they’ve come up with Express recently which has filled in the gap that Picnik has left in my heart when they disappeared. Haha! And so here’s one of the test edits I did, an attempt at an outfit post:

So my sisters and I decided it was to be Heels Day on the day we went out and watched a movie together and these are the outfits we came up with! πŸ˜€

Izza’s outfit unfortunately I’m not sure where she got but she was wearing a blue and white wrap (?) top, dark jeans, and brown textured heels πŸ™‚

Mia was wearing a cream/off-white top with knit/embroidered details from Mango, dark wash jeans, and her colorful stripey wedges from Jellybean πŸ™‚

I was wearing a cut-off top with feather print from Topshop, maroon jeans, and aztec heels from VNC πŸ™‚

(And that my friends is a more appropriate outfit post. HAHA. And I honestly do think we all looked great that day! Sorta hippie vibes yay! πŸ˜€ )
