stepping into the light


no i'm not sad in these photos. i'm sleepy and very full from our big breakfast this morning. harry and i like to just sleep-in on weekends and this is one of them. just a post-birthday celebration and also to celebrate our 29th month together as a couple. this pale green dress is one of my favorites. it has seen me through chubby and fat days because of the elastic waist. i am happy to report that i had to cinch the belt so much that i had to fold it at the sides. the dressed used to be a bohemian maxi dress but i had my dad cut it short --- just like he did on all my other dresses. i loved it as a maxi dress but felt that it cut me shorter because of its full skirt. 

so here's my weekend: brownie cheesecake and hours of talking with karen, browsing through books i can't afford at fully booked especially now that i'm saving for my unemployed days, dvd shopping --- grey's anatomy season 6, the runaways and she's out of my league; slept in the clothes i wore out and make-up when i got home -- which made me feel like crap because i don't like feeling dirty in the middle of my sleep; lots of channel surfing with harry on sunday afternoon, a night with a polka-dotted ribbon, a donut twist and almond snickers bar at 4 in the morning and lots and lots of sleep.

This dress is such a beautiful color. I love the neckline. The length looks great, I love maxi dresses but i can understand they can feel like they are taking over sometimes.

-My surgery is for reconstructing my ACL as well. If you have any other fashion tips i would love to hear them.

That sounds like an awesome weekend... Anything with lots of sleep. :) I am guessing the Bohemian look is still big in the Philippines? My sister-in-law is very much into that look nowadays.
