TAG me, TAG you!

2:48 AM

What have all you lovelies been up to?

In case you were wondering, things have been pretty crazy for the past few days. Mom just got out of the hospital after 2 days where she got a battery of examinations done, and thank God the results were favorable. I had to sleepover at the hospital, far away from my laptop, so i guess i have tons of catching up to do! i promise to update comments and link exchanges NOW.:)

Upon getting back I discovered that I was tagged by THREE gorgeous friends at the same time! Normally I'd be too lazy to answer these questionnaires (I almost never do in Facebook), but I'd gladly indulge for the time being.:)

[1] What are your current obsessions?

cage/mesh booties, anything studded/ripped, Martin Margiela's genius chocolates, shoulder pads, getting my camera back (hahaha... losing sleep for it!)

Martin Margiela's "hair" coat. is there anything more stunning really?

YSL Cage Heels... definitely the hottest shoes i have seen in a long time

[2] What is your weirdest obsession?

fried chicken. no kidding!

[3] What are you wearing today?

AllSaints gray knitted draped top, H&M pleather leggings, open-toed booties from Mario D' Boro, with studded accessories and a Tommy Hilfiger plaid bag in the mix. Pre-fall casual.

[4] What’s for dinner today?

anything WITHOUT rice. I'm on a strict no-rice diet!

[5] Why is today special?

Well, my mom's finally out of the hospital, and a good friend is celebrating her birthday with drinks and her best girl and gayfriends. so go! :)

[6] What would you like to learn to do?

speak German fluently. my boyfriend is half-German and his culture just fascinates me. anyone up for teaching me?

[7] What’s the last thing you bought?

these H&M pleather leggings which i really had to order online (as we don't have H&M here). hefty but the purchase was worth it!

[8] What are you listening to right now?

playing "That's What Friends Are For" because a listener called up to request for it. Awwwwww.

[10] What is your most challenging goal right now?

Working with my boyfriend in developing his/our business. That will be very hard as he can be a bit of an asshole, and he knows it well!

[11] What do you think about the person who tagged you?

Well, these three gorgeous ladies are absolutely unique and spectacular in their own right. I appreciate them a lot for the tagging and for just being fabulous and real friendly. i hope to foster deeper friendships with them (as well as all of you of course.)!

*Jamie Clare (thealteration.blogspot.com) has fantastic taste in mixing vintage and modern silhouettes together. with a 60's Twiggy/female ingenue aura about her, she pulls off simple separates so well and turns them into something uniquely her own.

*E (districtofchic.com) has always had this amaaaaazingly relaxed yet edgy urbanite feel about her clothes and styling, which i LOVE. definitely not too far from how I would style my own clothes.:)

*Jessica (fashionready.blogspot.com) is incredibly sweet in terms of personality and her style. i adore how she throws a floral skirt with basic blacks and grays. she is such a charmer.

[12] If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

Of course in Barrie, CA (where my man is)... if not, South Beach in Miami (god i love the beach!) or Cologne, Germany. wishful thinking!

South Beach, Miami... beach party all day, everyday!

[13] What would you like to have in your hands right now?

a big bucket of fried chicken, but i shouldn't be thinking of that should i?

KFC's Bucket of Chicken... the stuff of (cholesterol-filled) dreams.
[14] What would you like to get rid of?

extra inches around my thighs and tummy. blame it on the chicken!

[15] If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

Barrie, Canada. That's where my heart is. Awwwwww X 2.

[16] Which language do you want to learn?

as i have mentioned, German is it.:)

[17] What do you look for in a friend?

anyone who can carry good conversations (or not!), basically anyone who can show more than just being savvy and stylish on the outside. i'd love someone with both heart and mind.

[18] Who do you want to meet in person?

Alexander Wang. seriously!

[19] What’s your favorite type of music?
Being a radio jock has exposed me to a lot of genres and music trends really, but I'm deeply fond of 80's new wave (dedicating a whole post to it), electronica and acid jazz.

[20] What’s the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?

hmmm. i'd say my gray men's blazer. it will go well with anything.

[21] What is your dream job?

Work in public relations/advertising/marketing outside of Cebu (i already do a bit of those here)in a bigger metropolis definitely, Like New York or Paris.

[22] Any favorite models?

Sessilee Lopez is just too gorgeous for words, and i really think she is the next biggest thing in fashion. And Sasha Privovarova... so smiling and so friendly. i love that.

[23] What would you mostly likely spend $100 on?

shoes. i won't even blink or think twice.

[24] What would you like an endless supply of?

just like jamie, see #23!

[25] Girl crush?

Kate Lanphear (for her unique unparalleled style) and Blake Lively. so frikking gorgeous!

[26] Do you admire anyone’s style?

oh absolutely. my fellow bloggers have always been inspirations... meeting fabulous girls all over the world with different backgrounds and different takes on fashion has taught me a lot.:)

[27] Describe your personal style. i think my style borders on just three things: edgy, streamlined, and experimental. As much as i'd love to be, i've never really been the frilly girly or prints type (nothing wrong with that though). My closet basically contains hardlined stuff (pleather, men's blazers, etc) and basic neutrals like white, black and gray. i also enjoy a lot of vintage silhouettes recently like shoulder pads, harems, etc. just having fun with fashion as of the moment.:)

Answering that was a lot of fun! Now, I'd love to do some local lovin' by tagging my fellow Filipino bloggers. Keep on spreading sunny tropical cheers to the blogosphere! can't wait to see your answers.:)

Denise of DeniseKatipunera
Dane of Trust Me, It's Paradise

Again, huge hugs and kisses for your continuous support for Chic in the Tropics. What's a performance without a supportive audience? You guys have been incredible.:)
Peace, love and rock n' roll! XOXO
