People often think that because I'm a mother and a wife now that my style turned into being more on the conservative side, because I don't normally wear clothes that would reveal too much skin and if you've been reading my blog for 5 years already, then you too would know that I don't show my tummy or a even show myself here wearing a bikini. I'm more of a sweater or dress kind of girl. Shorts would be the most revealing for me already. But truth be told, that's really how I am even during my teen years and single lady days, I always stayed covered. Conservative ang lola niyo! Lol!;)

But I won't deny that after giving birth to Athan that regretted not wearing cropped tops, because after I had him, I gained a lot of stretch marks, so all the more I didn't have the guts to wear clothes that would show off my skin, because obviously people would just judge about me showing parts that aren't too pretty. Why bother, right?

And you can guess that when I had my second baby Asher, I got more shy to show off anything! So when I got this dress, I didn't know if I could pull it off or how it would look on me. Hesitant at first, but of course, I tried it on and was surprised that despite of my many stretch marks, it didn't show! It actually hid the part where my stretch marks were visible. It was awesome!! *insert happy dance here*:)

I fell in love with this dress immediately after trying it on. I knew I just had to wear it to Philippine Fashion Week today and to top it all off, I combined it with standout flower accessories to make it the perfect outfit for me. :) World, meet my tummy! haha!:)) Well, a portion of it though and the only part i'll ever show!=P 

Long story short, I wore this to the Penshoppe Holiday 2013 PHFW Show. Will blog about that next!:) Hope you all are having a great weekend!
