I was inspired by Korean fashion today so I went for that get-up.
Today's outfit was mainly inspired by Sandara Park from the new girl group "2ne1" (21). I just really adore them. Their outfits are just so unique, colorful, and loud which makes them such good scene stealers. Once you set your eyes on any of them, you cant keep them off. The outfits make you want to stare and inspect each and every detail of each piece of clothing. To me, their style is an art. Looking at their clothes alone already entertains, what more when they actually perform?
Sandara Park actually "originated" from the Philippines. She became famous cause of Star Circle Quest (which I've always wanted to join!) and she was an actress and singer here for several years before she actually started this girl group in Korea. I've been following her TV show (2ne1 TV) in Korea and she once mentioned that she misses the Philippines and her friends back here and as much as she wants to go back, she couldnt because she has to first work hard in Korea to be successful in her new role as a member of 2ne1.
This was her before: (During her auditions in SCQ! HAHAHAHA ITS SO FUNNY)
..and this is her now :)
What a change, right? Anyway, thats all for now. I'm out. Ciao!
Sometimes, I just feel really good about well, being my size. I usually can manage to fit into anything (except of course unless they're MODEL size.) and make it look good. I had this "feel good" realization a while ago when I went to the mall.
Topshop was obviously the first stop as usual and I found an amazing little black dress at 70% off. It was the last piece (yeah, it wasnt one of those overstocks they had which were on the sale racks for practically forever. It was actually the first time I saw that dress.) and I thought it was cute so I tried it on. Its was a laced tube LBD and I thought it looked gorgeous. At first, I thought it wouldnt fit me since it was a size 10, but to my belief, it did!What was even better was that from PHP 3,800, it went down to PHP 599. What a sale right? Still, nothing beats that girl on Chictopia who was able to find a top which was originally 4k and went down to 50 pesos at Rustans. Who the hell finds tops for 50 at Rustans?!
I guess I could say that I'm glad I'm just a medium because if I were too small, then most clothes would be too loose and if I were too big, then most clothes would be too tight. (I mean, if I were a small I wouldnt have been able to buy that dress, right?)
Anyway, this was what was served for dinner (mom didnt cook any of these. relatives coming over was a super last minute thing so we just bought food instead):
I managed to wear my Hanes shirt today since my dad didnt come with us to the mall. (I'm allowed to wear it as long as he's not there). Those sunglasses were the sunglasses I ordered online. Apparently, they're not as half tinted as what it was stated in the site. That's whats bad about online shopping, you never know what to expect because pictures can really make things look different. Atleast I didnt spend much for them, and hey, they still look good anyway.
I think this outfit would look better with a fedora, yes?
