(Sherlock Holmes Vols. 1 & 2 are my current reads)It was definitely a challenge for me to keep the designs as simple as it could possibly be since I like flamboyant, over the top and ruffly kind of gowns (as you all know by now if you've seen my debut gowns) but hey, (I kept reminding myself) I am not designing for myself and the one who's going to wear the gowns. Hahaha!
Like I said, I was drawing/sketching again because my friend Raiza, asked me to design her debut gown. Raiza's a very girly-girl kind of err...girl (haha!) and her dream gown (she told me) should be classy, simple, elegant and most importantly, a balloon tulle gown. Here are a few designs that I came up with:
On to the outfit post then! And my love for anything bohemian/country continues. This reminds me so much of being in the countryside and Taylor Swift (I blame it on the plaid and denim). Haha!
*Oh and I did not cut my hair short okay? I just clipped it at the back in a low somewhat untidy bun. :)I'm wearing my plaid corset-y type tube top from PRP and denim bell-bottoms from Freeway that I bought two years ago. Yes, it's that ancient and this is the first time that I'm wearing them out. Haha! It takes me a loooong time to wear my newly bought clothes especially when I have an "outfit idea" in mind. I won't wear it until the last piece of this "outfit idea" is complete (yea, I'm a perfectionist like that). Anyhoo, this wide-legged jeans has a nice story behind it. I saw this one day in a Freeway store and I knew I had to try it on (even though I didn't have plans on buying it...at first). When it fit me well, my heart grew swell and that's when I knew that I had to have them. Unfortunately, I spent all my shopping money that time and my mom won't loan me some more moolah. Defeated, I went home feeling dejected and empty inside. That same night, I still couldn't get over the thought of letting it pass so I told my mom that I'll sleep on the matter first. That very night, I dreamt of wearing the wide-legged jeans that I passed up and feeling all tingly and happy in the dream. Morning came and when I woke up I groggily recounted the dream to my mom and told her that I will get it no matter what. When I got home from school that day, my mom surprised me by buying the jeans for me. So that's the story of how this jeans came into my possession. Talk about the "outfit of my dreams" (literal eh noh?). Haha!
What a disjointed post! :))
