A heart-rendering combination of panic and hope




Hey, so I went to work today looking like this (minus the floral crown) and I got this very weird feedback...

"Are you an atheist?"

I'm not sure if it was a serious question because she jokingly asked that. haha. My initial reaction was, "OMG ate hindi noh! tignan mo nga oh may crucifix ako. haha." (OMG ate, no! Look, I have a crucifix).  F.Y.I. the crucifix I was wearing was actually a crucifix similar to Pope Francis', which was given to me during the honoring night that I was invited to along with the other students who served whole-heartedly for the Lord through stepping up and accepting the responsibility for their religious organization.

Can I not wear whatever I like and not get too much attention because of it? Oh well, I guess if I'm working in a design firm this isn't a big deal. haha. I can't wait for that to happen! :)



Anyway, if you'll ask me, this is actually one of my best ensembles so far and I love it! I think I have two specific styles --- a "girly-girly flowy and dreamy style" and a "girly-goth, i-hate-the-world style". At least I was able to be consistent in being girly. haha.


I'm happy that I was able to put together this 3-piece statement necklace which I got individually. The crucifix which I mentioned earlier has a sentimental value. And it also has this double-purpose - for my religion (Roman Catholic) and also as a fashion piece. :)) The shortest necklace is from born pretty while the longest one is from Kisty Mea of Let's Go Wander



WEARING: Off-shoulder top from SM Dept. Store Clearance Outlet | Kaymar Alekzis Shop Floral Crown | Thrifted Skirt | Shoes from my secret shop | Necklaces c/o born pretty and from Ate Kisty Mea and UST (CCM) | Bracelets c/o Cutey, Chinese Apparel, and Rings and Tings


In case you're wondering, my means of transportation is via jeepney, and yes I wear ensembles like this even if I commute. haha. :) Also, I think I kinda look creepy on my way home because imagine me standing still in the corner while waiting for a jeep and then it rained so I used my purple umbrella. HAHA.

    1. Hi Morgan, thanks a lot! :) Yes I do. Most of my outfit photos (those taken in my room), I take them myself. But outdoors, I usually ask my mom, dad, brothers, cousins, or friends to take them. haha :)))
