boho femme

trend or not, in season or not at all, i always love the feminine boho chic style. i am enchanted by the prints, enthralled by the flow and layer of fabrics and charmed by the piles of accessories. other than my necklaces, rings and bangles, i have quite a collection of scarves even when i didn't have much use for them back when i was in school. people would stare if i wear them on my head. i once wrapped my entire head with a scarf while i was being admitted to the hospital when i had really high fever and i found myself rumored to have cancer and under chemotherapy. sad but true -- most people here cannot understand some of my fashion sensibilities. i continue to defy them though and wear my scarves out despite people's stares. i guess that is what fashion is sometimes about, a risk of being stared at. the only consolation is the attention -- positive or not.

speaking of bohemian fashion, here's a great online shop you can visit --- the House of Isla. the designer is based in Baguio and she has the most amazing pieces --- true to the heart of a bohemian.

anyway, it would be our third day here in Bangkok and i would expect to have shopped my feet to death. it's a Sunday and i am hoping to meet Sweet of Pens and Lens. will do a post about more of my BKK adventures when i get back. ♥

I love your rings. Indeed your right. Sometimes, they can't seem to understand fashion itself. They find it weird but little did they know that fashion is art. Anyways, thanks for sharing the site. I'd visit that one.. Looking for bohemian pieces.. enjoy y'er shopping in bangkok!!

i love your boho chic look :) always stunning. And thank you for giving me turban ideas. I'm clueless as how to wear them, so this is great!

I SO envy you for being in bangkok! My first was when I was 12 and haven't gone back since :(

I like the boho chic look pero di ko talaga keri, di bagay sa akin. The turban looks good on you! OA yung mga tao na naga-assume na basta naka turban ay may cancer.
