Dressing Up for Work

Dressing up is fun, especially when you’re a girl. While I’m a self-proclaimed, low-maintenance gal, I also enjoy dressing up once in a while. In fact, one of the goals I set this year is to dress properly at work. You know, taking the corporate attire thing seriously even if I’m just working in a government office.

Dressing up for work (or otherwise) is more fun if your wardrobe is always updated. Regular shopping for new clothes is good, but only if you can afford it. Sometimes, all you need is some creativity and imagination. You can actually mix and match clothes without looking cheap and unsophisticated. You can use up old clothes and make them look brand new to the eyes of your workmates. Add some nice accessories to your outfit, for instance. It’s a sure way to glam up your office attire.

To remind myself to dress up more often, you might just see outfit posts here in the coming days!

DIY Fringe Necklace

I had some free time last night and used it by doing something creative. I made a DIY fringe necklace using only four materials: old silver chain, scrap denim fabric, beads and black thread. I’m so happy it turned out really nice and even got some compliments from my workmates this morning! Yes, I made it last night and wore it to work today (excited much). Haha.

It’s not so photogenic but I’m telling you it’s gorgeous in the flesh. Haha. I wanna make more of this in the future. My only problem is I don’t get to have as much free time as I’d like these days. I also want to buy more materials in Quiapo or in Divisoria so the next time I make accessories, I won’t be limited to the scrap/recycled materials I have at home.

Comfy Flatforms

In my search for a pair of comfy shoes online, I chanced upon some flatforms sold at a Multiply shop called Asian Vogue. I’ve already heard about these shoes before from the fashion blogs I frequent and upon checking out the Asian Vogue’s flatforms collection, I fell in love with this pair:

Aren’t they gorgeous? A little fierce, but chic. I love that it comes in brown, one of my favorite colors. The price is a little steep at P1,695, though. But I like want it. Gotta check my funds first if I still can afford a new pair of shoes after spending a lot of moolahs during our recent trip abroad.

If you were me, would you buy this comfy looking flatforms? 🙂

A Necklace Business

I have this list of dreams in an Excel file kept inside my PC which I update whenever I think of a new dream I want for myself. One of the dreams I have the pleasure of keeping alive in my heart and mind is putting up a necklace business. This is known only to a few but I have a penchant for necklaces. I love wearing them and I love making them, too. Yes, I can make my own necklace made from scratch or from recycled materials.

Actually, I already have a name for my necklace business but I won’t tell anybody just yet. Clue: it’s a secret name derived from a brand of headphones. Haha. Soon I will make my necklace business dream come true. I will sell different kinds of necklaces, from bead necklaces to stainless steel necklaces, from those made from conventional design pieces to those created from indigenous materials. I will make them all and change the world of fashion with my necklaces.

Actually, there is a black version of this shirt designed for ladies. And it looks nice, too.
