oozing with 90's goodness


i've had this blazer for a while but never had the chance to photograph it til' now. i love that it's linen so it's not too warm and that it oozes with 90's goodness because it's over-sized, shoulder-padded and has these awesome bronze buttons. just perfectly reminiscent of the original 90210 and Saved by the Bell, huh? would you believe i got this blazer for only PHP 50? That's $1 for you. i planned to write another thrifting entry following the art of thrifting post i did last year that illustrated when i started thrifting and my experiences that came along with it. i wanted to write about good spot for thrifting or ukay-ukay here in Cebu but decided against it. after all, even if everyone does it nowadays, there are still those secret spots we'd like to call our own. if you do want to really know, hit me up with an e-mail and i might just tell you. ♥ ♥ ♥

speaking of the 90's, don't you miss the original X-MEN and ninja turtles series with the deliciously sketched characters? i don't know about you but nothing beats the good ol' cartoons. the digital version of X-MEN right now just doesn't do it for me --- just lacked details and color depth. just saying. LOL.

and ooh, i'm brewing up a giveaway for all of you, especially my 900+ Facebook followers. thank you is not enough to tell you how grateful i am for continuing to follow my blah blahs. wait for it. i might post the giveaway on Sunday! ♥

Lucky you for finding a linen blazer. I have "proper" blazers with "proper" lining but wearing them these days is suicide.
