Blogging from a café once again. Thank God I’m just 1 tumbling away from the café and I can afford to go here even though I am still a bit sick. The heat is unbearable at home. My entire family’s squeezing on my baby brother’s bed for comfort. Siya lang kasi ang may karapatan mag-aksaya ng kuryente sa bahay namin. Lahat kami wala! Kesehodang mamatay ka sa init wag kang mage-aircon!! Nyahahaha..


I’m wearing another DIY’d top here. I am so loving all my DIY projects. I just realized that most of the clutter in my closet are composed of items that I don’t wear because they are so out of season. And what’s a girl to do? Give them a make over of course! ano pa’t self-proclaimed fashionista ako!!!


This top is an old lola shirt. Those oversized polo that our granny’s love to wear, remember? They kinda made a short come back last year and I rummaged some old clothes on our stash and this is one of them. This is a short-sleeved shirt that I use for layering then. But the sleeves are really big and since it’s short-sleeved and oversized, the sleeve length is kinda weird. So, what I did is cut off the sleeves, and tie it at the front for that summery feel. :) I love that after cutting off the sleeves, it leaves a humongous armhole for a little peek-a-boo. Diba?! Lakas maka-summer!!


I love my top’s fabric. I think most of our lola shirt are like that – soft and breezy. I have 2 more and I am planning on doing the same. Those 2 other shirts are printed. Yes, they are lola prints! But I think if I cut them, they’ll be perfect for summer. And this kind of top can be worn with skirts, pants or shorts as seen here. You can tie them in front like what I did here or just tuck it in. You can also keep the buttons open and make it a vest. I swear! I have loads of things in mind already. I tried the vest thing and it’s too cute for words. Will try to post them here soon. :)


Decided to pair my “new-old-top” with a floral shorts, sandals, my ever cute bayong, a high bun and red lippies!! So ready for summer. Perfect outfit for the mall. I can also see myself wearing the same if I’m out of town. You know, while jumping from one tourist spot to another as you take a gazillion of photos and loads of jump shots!! :) Aminin nyo, DSLR nalang na nakasabit sa leeg ang kulang, turistang turista na ang peg ko!

Say hi to my paparazzi shot!! :) Thanks lil’ sis for taking my look shots in front of so many people at the mall. You gotta give sissy a pat in the back and a huge hug to yours truly for being such a brave girl.


P.S.: These pictures made me realize how important make up is in doing fashion blogs. I went to the Covergirl stall at the mall and the very nice beauty consultant kinda did my make up here. :) Which made me hoard their stuff. Well actually, it’s just two lippies, crème blush and an eye liner. But I whatever! Mahal padin sya! Anyway, nagustuhan ko naman so carry lang.
