Thursday is dress up day!

by - January 27, 2011

I don't usually dress up for school, well actually, I NEVER do. If you only see me everyday, I look like a manang with my geeky glasses and hair messed up. Believe me, I can bear going to school like that and I don't care if people think I look hideous. All that matters is I am absolutely comfortable with my outfit (I usually just stay in school for awhile before...) But because my hours in school are longer this term, I made an exception and decided to make Thursday my day for dressing up. :)

I don't bring my camera to school, because no one would take my picture, so I waited until I got home for Gersh to take my pictures. He is after all my darling photographer for outfit posts. ;)




I really love the tribal inspired necklace and skirt that Mom got for me at Forever 21. The Kimono cover up is also my favorite; I love how it simply hugs my body. Got this from TCP last year, but never got the chance to use it, so why not now, when the weather is still a bit cold? Luckily it went well with the skirt. :)


Cover up: tcp | White top: mango | Skirt & Necklace: f21 |
Wedges: parisian jr. | bag: united colors of benetton | bracelet: charmed life

As you can see my bag is really bulgy. (Thank you to my Tita for my awesome bag!^_^) Like I said, I stay in school for quite awhile, so I need to bring a lot of stuff. Nevertheless, I still enjoy school and i'll definitely try to do more OTD in school every Thursday. ;)

I seriously got a lot of stares today because of my outfit. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing?=p Either way, I'm happy to step out of my comfort zone in campus and try something new. :) I love this term!^_^
