maxi + stripes = answered questions

i think i'm getting bad at blogging mainly because i've been trying to juggle so many new things in  my life and welp, because when i get home all i want to do is watch TV, 'imortal' to be more specific. i just can't resist john lloyd cruz's good looks.LOL. to those who are not from the philippines or do not follow teleseryes or local tv series, 'imortal' is the pinoy's take on the vampire-wolf craze. it's something between twilight / underworld / anne rice plus the pinoy cheesiness. 

just so you guys won't think that i've totally forgotten about the questions you posted on my last giveaway, i'm going to answer a few right now. here goes:

which one would you prefer most -- stripes, plaid or polka dots? (27chic and tortured artist)
well, for those who have been following my blog for some time now, you would know that i have such a weakness for polka dots. although it's weird saying this because the photos above show me wearing stripes..hehe. 

have you tried wearing neon leggings? (27chic)
as much as i'd like to, no i haven't and i don't think i ever will. constant running and drills from my old football days have developed my legs to be most unforgiving in bright colored pants, what more leggings. but i will be wearing a pair of metallic purple leggings this halloween.*wink*

who is your fashion icon and why? (eelectroCutee and style-haus)
i normally say mary-kate olsen because i just adore her laid-back, boho-chic style but i just recently discovered carine roitfeld (yes, it took me an issue of preview two months ago to appreciate her style) and i am just blown away by her. her style is just chic, slightly disheveled but very smartly done. she dons  embellishments and layers accessories without going to far. i just love how she layers and pairs her clothes. 

what is the major change you had recently? (sweet)
i think most of you know this but i'm going to say it for those who don't --- 2 months ago, i resigned from a high-paying job which was making me unhappy in exchange for a job which pays only half of my last salary but is very close to my interests --- the arts and marketing. 

where do you go thrifting here in Cebu? (alexa luna)
cebu freedom market or carbon is a fail-safe way to thrift although it may be a bit chaotic. you can find vintage dresses, cool shirts, frayed or washed out denim shorts, beautiful scarves from P10 - P70. for a more comfortable environment though, walk around the areas nearing cebu doctor's hospital. they have several air-conditioned spots that sell ukay-ukay from P50 - P280. and when you do plan to go on an ukay trip, tell me so i can go with you.hehe.

I love this look! I want to do maxi skirts so badly but I find very long pieces of clothing very annoying.

I love this look! That skirt is rad and you pull it off really well!

I love polka dots too! And I admire you for quitting your previous job. I did that too! Although unlike you, Im still in the process of finding a job that I will love and that I will enjoy. And I care about the money the least too. Yayyy!

H and I had been wanting to go to Cebu. He fell in love with the city the first time he visited with his he wants to take me there. If we get the time to do so you'd be the first i'd call...we could go to ukay together till our feet hurt.
