summer layers: sheer + prints




phew! finally got the chance to do a post. this has probably been the longest time i've been away and i apologize for that. i might not have a lot of dedicated readers like other blogs but i think i'm safe to say that a few do follow my posts. right? *wink*

aside from the lack of internet connection at home for almost 3 weeks now, i've also been very (as in super) busy with our wholesale apparel business. it's an awesome job selling clothes to people and sorting out dresses, tops, skirts, shoes and bags, trying them out every once in a while and giving styling advice to those interested but do not quite know what to do with the item. oh i wish i can just work in a clothing store (or manage my own) and make a living out of it. i've got shallow, shallow ambitions huh? but dealing with fashion makes me happy. note to harry: find a great paying job so we can live off your salary...hahaha!

on another note, a very exciting one, remember how i've been saying i've been brewing up something big? it's almost at its completion. here's a sneak peek. hope you're excited! ♥ ♥ 

sheer printed dress - thrifted (and borrowed from mom)
black camisole - metro ayala dept store
black lace-up cuban heels - parisian, gifted from harry
turquoise belt - robinson's dept store, dumaguete
stacks of bangles: brass + wooden - carbon finds
elephant necklace - carbon find
cross necklace - custom-made by sister
elephant tusk necklace - bangkok find
rattle snake connector ring - carbon find

Boo, I can't see the sneak peek on my phone. I'll try to remember to look on desktop.

I've slowed down my blogging which includes my reading, so no harm no foul. I, too, would love to live off one salary. Wishful thinking.

So excited for your shop, congratulations!!

Owning a boutique is my dream too, so maybe I'm biased but I don't think it's shallow at all :) I can't think of anything more rewarding than being your own boss and doing what you love!

littlelucy said...

That's an awesome ring!

Be said...

I am so jealous of your jewllery! I'm going to have to go to your house and steal them all!
Those are awesome shoes and they go really well with your dress.

I'm pretty much teh same, I want to be an part-time author and that's just all so I should probably just marry some rich old man and wait for him to knock off. Haha. Why is everything so much easier when you're rich?
