Today’s Outfitey: Dr. Martens Boots

Posted on

Boots like any other shoes are essential to ones shoe collection. It is a very versatile piece that can go with almost any outfit.

I have a love affair with Dr. Martens boots. I remember back in grade school that it was one of those “it” shoes. Aside from its durability, DMs (as what it popularly called) had always been a classic favorite, its rubber soles are tried & tested to be slip proof (a plus for someone who’s a clumsy *ahem*).  And now, more people are beginning to appreciate its beauty.

So for today’s outfitey, I give you my first look on how to wear/pair them in any regular looking outfits.

Floral Power! :p

I specially love wearing these during the rainy season and come Christmas time, it just feels perfect wearing it on such weather & event. Dr. Martens boots may appear “manly” especially if it’s a 6 or 8 eyelet black one. So I suggest you experiment and pair it with more girly clothes. You wouldn’t want to look all grudge-y and emo (not unless you really want to) by pairing it with dark-colored clothes as well. But if you plan on doing so, better be sure to put a little color to it through accessories to get that girly feminine look. In this outfitey, the floral print on my dress & the pink colored lips I sported makes it look feminine. 😉

THE OUTFITEY:

Floral mini dress: Topshop

Off white elastic belt: Mango

Black sling bag: Mango

Floral 6 eyelet boots: Dr. Martens

I hope eventually I get to “collect” few more DM boots. I specifically love the floral prints, metallic colors & their collaboration with Sanrio. Check out their website for more of their products Dr. Martens Airwair- Shoes, Boots and Sandals.

That’s all!

Today’s Outfitey: Body Hugging Dress

Posted on

Today’s key piece is a fitted one! A body hugging dress is hard to pull off if you are “pusunin” (bloated bellylike me. So I made sure I wore this when I was least bloated (which is usually after my period). Best to wear seamless underwear for clothes that are body hugging (clothes that show your curves) for ordinary undergarments might give an impression (bakat, felix bakat! LOL) revealing unwanted areas which is a bit tacky.

Again, another great find from Ebay. Seriously, you guys should check Ebay (ayan ha, sharing is caring talaga ang peg ko) because fabulous finds are waiting to be discovered there! LOL. Plus it pays to be patient in searching for key pieces talaga, especially those that are not branded. For those branded clothes naman, it easier to search for them but sizes vary nga lang because most items are second hand or thrifted and sizes are broken or limited.

 THE OUTFITEY:

Blue rayon dress: BCBGeneration

Blue gray platform heels: Charles & Keith

Black clutch: Mango

Black chandelier earrings: Aldo

That’s all!

Mango Mid-Year Sale 2011

Posted on

Ladies! It’s the time of the year again where everything (well, almost) is on sale. June isn’t only  known for as the month of weddings and the start of classes here in the Philippines. But for the shopper in us, know that June is also the time wherein our pockets & wallets are in its thinnest & lightest form, thanks to the mid-season sales. And why I hate getting and receiving spam newsletters from various establishments, I am happy to say that I love getting invites (from my favorite stores of course) & knowing the latest happenings before everyone else does (or at least before the stocks run out).

So let me share with you what I received in the mail. (Sorry, I know this is kinda late since I got the mail last Wednesday but learned it’s on my spam folder :|)

you had me at 50% off!

Woot! woot! Mid-year sale from Mango on all of their stores started this week!

Mango is LOVE

 I was able to check out Mango’s mid-year sale yesterday. There were so many good items on sale, too good that the moment I stepped in I asked for a bag & filled it up with all sorts of clothing and in less than 10 minutes I already needed a new bag to fill in. LOL There were also a few nice bags  priced for as low as P1,199 to P3,000+. But I promised my husband I won’t buy any bags this year (since I got a designer bag last Christmas) thus my itch for a Cambridge Satchel bag is still lingering and my placing an order for it is on hold. 😐

Nonetheless, the good news is that I am no longer an impulsive buyer. After the garage sale I had two days ago (which was a success by the way), I had enough moolah on hand BUT controlled myself and was able to buy only 1 pair of pants. The one style I’ve been eyeing on since early this year (regular retail price was way expensive for a pair jeans, at least for me) was put on sale and it was at  50% off! Hoooray! From P3,000+ I got it for P1,000+ and it had my size, so it was really meant for me. LOL! Will feature it on one outfitey post soon! Am I being such a teaser? Yes, yes I am. 😉

So if I were you right after reading this, I’d run to a Mango store near you. Yes, now na!

*Sale runs until supplies last*

Enjoy ladies! I hope you get a steal from Mango’s mid-year sale for 2011. 😉

Have a great long-weekend everyone! 😉
