no to dress codes

one of the perks of working in a design company is the freedom to dress in what we're comfortable in, the freedom to express ourselves. of course, partial nudity is not allowed --- that would be insane as we have to meet clients..haha! but still, we don't have to wear rigid business casual clothes like blazers, non-denim trousers but can wear clothes with breathable materials and even shorts. breathable clothes are really important these days because as summer arrives, so does the scorching heat. scorching meaning there is not a cold moment inside my air-conditioned car in the 15-minute drive i make to work to every morning. the heat is ridiculous and it will become more insane as summer deepens. 

printed tunic - mom's closet (thrifted)
denim shorts - props
studded wedge booties - shopyapi.com
layered necklaces - carbon finds
brass oversized carved cuff - shopyapi.com
rings: armor ring | oversized blue stone - carbon finds

i want to thank everyone for checking out my shop: www.shopyapi.com especially to the ones who've already purchased a few items. the shop can be overwhelming but deciding on what to purchase isn't too difficult as the shop has a 'shop outfits' page where you can check out how an item can be styled. every item also has a styling suggestion -- just to give you a picture of how you can rock that Yapi item.

I can't view your shop on my phone and Flash is messed up on our home desktop, so I'll have to peek on my break at work when I'm not home with a sick child.

Please send us some sunshine!

I'm really happy for your shop gizelle! :) Finally, you gave birth to a baby! :) I hope shop yapi continues to grow :) You're off to a good start. I'm eyeing on those booties but I am broke. But I really love your items! :)
