Today’s Outfitey: Color Blocked

Posted on

As promised! Although madami pa akong pending na blog posts inuna ko na talaga to. Next time na yun iba kahit back logged na ko sa posts. Heehee. For today’s key pieces (lahat talaga) : Color Blocking.

Color blocking was a fashion even before, naalala nyo ba ang retro colors? very much neons & fluorescent lang. The differences between the 80’s & now are not much; now hindi na ganun ka-tacky ang accessories(net gloves,earrings to match), solid colors instead of those 80’s checkered & plaid prints, one color per piece/section unlike the retro printed top & bottom to mix. Other than these I think bumabalik lang talaga ang fashion BUT it evolves somehow. Gets? Like vintage with a modern twist. YUN NA!

While I was figuring out & styling my clothes eto yun peg ko talaga.

color blocking #1

 Color kung color! But when I learned that we’ll be doing a lot of walking that Saturday, eh I decided to pair it with this instead:

color blockng #2

Tory Burch Reva flats in silver

flats in neutral shade para naman comfortable at may neutral color na nagaganap. Pero that night I had to change kase my date with Mr. J, so I changed to this shoe:

color blocking #3

nude-nudan portion!

also in neutral shade, this nude strappy wedge is also nice with this outfitey.Pardon the photo quality inconsistency, J & I were in a hurry taking these pictures that the camera settings are different one picture from another.

THE OUTFITEY

Green raceback: Mango

Yellow cardigan: Zara

Blue cropped pants: Mango

Red belt: Memo

Orange snakeskin heels: Zara

Silver flats: Tory Burch

Nude cut out wedge: Aldo

Black Pilipinas watch: ODM

White tote: Gucci

P.S. don’t be afraid to mix & match colors & textures. Minsan all you need is inspiration. I hope I can put up another color block outfitey. Bet ko sana neon/fluo colors but I doubt na keri ko bilang merona ako. But still, I shall try.

Perfect ang colors for summer or kung feel nyo lang din, try sporting this come October-November. Bet ko lang syang gawing Hallowen costume, mag blonde wig lang ako at ako na si color blocked Barbie. Achieved! 😉

That’s all!

ooo,

J.

Mercato Centrale Tweetup

Posted on

So as you all know I am an active addict Twitter user and some of my tweeps were talking about a tweetup happening (last weekend). Curious enough & wanted to meet new people, I signed up.

spot my twitter name on the sign up sheet

 Good timing ‘coz we usually have the weekend scheduled a week before, so this was really meant to be. Sabeeeh? 🙂 Plus the husband and I are itching on checking out  Mercato Centrale and this was a perfect opportunity to do so.

everything on stick!

 I am a food lover. I eat almost everything (except okra,gabi,chicken feet, liver) so being in a food tiangge is indeed heaven! Sorry if I didn’t take enough pictures. I was so hungry and excited at the same time that taking pictures was my least priority.

meat anyone?

 Wide variety of food. From different viands to street food to gourmet food. They also have desserts, fresh produce as well as organic foods. Sad talaga no pictures for everything but you have to experience it for yourself.

different kinds of pasta

I ordered the lasagna, it was creamy & yummy! Next time I’ll avail the other unique pasta dishes.

angus beef tapa

I ordered Jago angustapsilog, he liked it but felt bitin coz he was really hungry.

a different kind of iced tea

 You all should try Gold Leaf Fiesta iced tea. It tastes like sago’t gulaman! I love love love sago’t gulaman! Wish it’s available in the grocery already. I had 2 glasses of it, too yummy to resist!

Manangs chicken

The famous fried chicken style that’s a hit nowadays. Well I personally like how crispy it is & how the flavor seeps into the meat itself.

hello people!

Did I mention there were a lot of people? As in a lot. The only downside to going at Mercato Centrale is the heat. Since it’s summer, we really can’t blame the Mr. Sun eh? So next time, we might check out Midnight Mercato instead. I bet it’s much steady and relaxed than Mercato Centrale but nonetheless we still love Mercato! 🙂

Tweetup registration

We were almost done eating & looking around when we registered for the tweetup. Oh well, it’s never to late you know 😉

My colorblocked family with our family friend The Hungs 🙂

 We enjoyed Mercato Centrale, the food and the new found friends. Hoping we can go to Midnight Mercato next time.

To more tweetups & tweeple!

Mercato Centrale is located at 34th St. & 8th Ave. (across MC Home Depot) Bonifacio Global City Taguig.
