What I Wore: 90's Redux.. and Yes, I'm Back!

7:46 PM

Hi everyone! Obviously, I just got back from my trip to Bantayan Island. My sincerest apologies for not being able to update while i was there-- somehow all the internet cafes were closed (as it was also the Holy Week.. or at least those i went to), and well, it was just too hot to do anything else but to soak in the beach and party at night. Hahah. Again, my apologies. I certainly missed all of you!

Pics of the trip have yet to be uploaded. I do have this humongous problem though: sand got into my new camera, and it's freaking out.:( (well, mom is pissed.) i just hope it doesn't hamper my blogging. or get permanently broken. i'd be so f*king depressed. well, i'm still optimistic... shit happens, and i'll just have to find a way to get by somehow.

That said, here's what I wore prior to leaving:


bleached denim vest-Kangaroo
black shirt-Vintage Tees
DIY bleached jeans
open-toed slingback bootie- Mario D' Boro

I'm really enjoying the direction of fashion as of this moment. As Tommy from Jak and Jil coined it, "Nu Rave" is in.. i'm an 80's person by heart-i'd gladly sashay in shoulder pads any day now-- but I'm really feeling the 90's overkill going on.. very eclectic, a little bit of rock and glam, truly reminiscent of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" days in which we wished that it would last forever. That... and I'm also incredibly bored of my (already i'll fitting) black skinnies, so I just took the bottle of bleach lying around and nuked the damn thing. Success, I think. I had fun doing it though.

Trying out the B&W setting in my camera turned out well... Now I'm frikking worried how the diagnostic of the damn thing will turn out. I hope it gets fixed:(

I've had this shirt for quite a while and its something I love for both going out and sleeping in--just somehow never managed to figure out what it said!

More than just the pants, I got wayyyy bored and decided to play around with my nails as well. Did i tell you that i can totally rock being a mani-pedi artist? Anyway... props to the adorable blogger who introduced me to doing this mish-mash of yellow and black (i used gray instead) and i think it turned out just the way i like it. thanks again!

Thank you to all those who left lovely comments (even when i was M.I.A).. i'll definitely get back to your inquiries and comments in 3...2...

Hope you had a good week as well.
