Tailormade

bubble dress - people are people, blazer - topshop, gladiators - cotton on, wayfarers - fourskin

denim shorts - people are people, top - vintage, belt - sm, bag - nothing but water, blazer - vintage ( shortened by yours truly)

dress - people are people, flipflops - havaianas


When my little sister was 6, she came to the Philippines for the first time. As soon as she stepped out of the terminal, she stripped down to her bikini and asked my mom: "Are we in an oven?"

That pretty much sums up the weather. The humidity is at times unbearable.. and I find myself constantly looking for the sea to jump into. Counting down the days till thats possible, so for now I have decided to stick to the blazer over summerdress or shorts combo. The blazer is what keeps me from umm, death.. because I am still sick. Our seamstress recognizes my cough as soon as I walk into the studio.. not a good sign, I think.

I made a bag in two days. It is a violet leatherette hobo, with gold studs. Use your imagination. =) I will post photos soon. The best part is - it is lined with violet satin! I still cant believe I designed, patterned, cut and sewed it. I swear, it was all a blur. Lalalalalove.
