the people i grew up with

 
 

 nothing beats the company of true friends. had our yearly christmas dinner with my elementary and high school friends -- the friends i've grown up with. we call ourselves 'thugs' because we used to love bone thugs and harmony so much back in high school. it means, "trues humbly united gathering souls..." i know, i know our name sounds so gangsta and corny in a way...hahaha! but we stuck to it because that's how we came together.  we had our dinner at this cool tea house called "bubble bee" and they serve every tea flavor and asian dishes. their interiors are really cool too -- with mis-matched sofas and lounges.

after some margarita with my 'thugs', harry and i went to vudu (one of cebu's top bars) and partied with my sisters.  vudu has this annual 'invierno' party where everyone should wear white. some friends there were teasing us about having a family day but what can we say, we do party together and we love our vodka too. welp, i don't really remember what happened after the vodka so i'm stopping here...haha!

ps. my blue / polka tights is inspired by tieka in this post.
i really love this girl and always enjoy not just looking at her outfit posts but also reading her thoughts.

white dress - maek 
blue tights - kate torralba
polka tights - macua street market
black peep toe booties - celine (a gift from harry!)
long chained watch / polka bangle - elegant tang dynasty
moose long necklace in gun metal - bubble bee gift shop
rings / teal / gun-metal bangles - props
black bag - mongkok ladies market

on my sisters:

white strappy heels - care
spaghetti strapped top - extra material from a long skirt (we had redone as a top)
beige belt - props
striped skirt - thrifted
cut-out heels - rosanna peña
bangles - props

That's so awesome that you and your old friends meet up. I'm always scared that, post-high school, I'll never see my friends again! So it's great to hear that you do :) Merry Christmas!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I've linked you, as well :)
