rain or shine: Cebu knows how to party!

purchasing this pair of studded boots despite living in a tropical country is probably one of the best shoe decisions i've made in 2009. this pair has gone through two Sinulog festivals and has freed my feet from mud, being stepped on and believe it or not, blisters. Sinulog is always the best excuse to go over the top with the outfit and don as many accessories as you can. as i didn't have enough time to make my American-Indian head dress, my mom's floral boho top is the next best thing plus my favorite head dress, the turban. next year for sure, i'll be donning feather on my head.

Sinulog is also always the perfect excuse to go wild out on the streets even with the heavy rain, paint our bodies with anything that we'll probably regret when we get to the office on Monday, drink even in the early afternoon, blow on a whistle till' our friends go deaf and shout to our hearts desire. you don't believe me? i'll let the photos do the talking...

i don't know how i got home but i owe Harry for getting me there safely. next year, i'm not drinking on an empty stomach nor am i stealing any cups of beer from unknowing friends. LOL.

I know right! Loser kaayo ko hahaha! I was supposed to go to Ayala with some friends Sunday night but I backed out because I got sort of traumatized with the post-SM fireworks experience. It was so hard getting a cab! :D

Melai said...

Wow I'm soo inggit mukang super saya nga!!! Gizelle, was the turban really thrifted or is that a scarf turned into a turban? If the answer to #2 question is yes, please teach me how (tutorial)!! I dunno how to make scarves into turbans kasi! Hehehe.

Anyway you look smashing! And yey! Cheers for that fun and crazy festival! :)
