taking a big leap

 
i have wanted to do this since forever. only that i was making excuses for myself, basically because i was afraid i wouldn't be able to pull it off. so here it is -- shop yapi vanilla. it's partly named after the nickname my lil' sister has for me -- yapi (which is backwards for my childhood nickname). it will feature pre-loved items, vintage finds and some designs by me. *crossing my fingers* the shop is currently open to philippine buyers for now, only because i'm still trying to figure out a payment and shipping scheme for international buyers.

 
so summer is definitely here and there's no stopping it. the heat is almost unbearable! it is scorching hot. the season for cotton shirts, linen clothing, short shorts and skirts is here!

neon green shirt - thrifted
plaid skirt - props
black beaded sandals - DIY (finickee sandals + old buttons from people are people)
white bag - mongkok ladies market, hk
dog tag necklace - custom-made
rings: blue - props | orange howlite - dane's giveaway

Oh PLEASE open it up to international buyers! I'd love to shop your closet.

Also, I am insanely jealous of today's outfit - it's really warm enough to wear that?! To give you an idea of the cold here, I'm currently sitting in a huge hoody, under a woolly blanket!! :(
