First Outfit Post

September 6, 2011

I just wanted to try my luck that's why I joined WAGW (What a Girl Wants) Online's Contest as posted by kriz uy. For the past few weeks, what I have been doing is to list the contests/opportunities that I wanted to take a chance with. But I always eneded up not doing anything about it. Always planning, but the plan was never executed. So even though my idea about the outfit was done on a whim, and my photo was not really that good, I still went on and sent my entry for the contest. I'll just worry the shame that I'll feel once the photo is published on their account lol. Anyway, I still wanted to post my pic, which will be my first outfit shot for this blog:

Leather leggings and shoes were bought last night at Robinsons Galleria. I initially saw them last Sunday, but decided to buy them just last night.

I was intending to buy a leather leggings way before, but I always thought it would turn out to be pricey. Good thing I saw this from WAGW store in Rob Gale. It only costs P488. Not bad right? :)

It is also my habit that when I'm inside a mall that I do not frequently visit, I try to check all the stores that might offer some items within my budget. And then I saw Charles and Keith's outlet store. If I remember it right the price range of the shoes/sandals there is P799-P1199 (discounted price already) . Got this pair for P1199 (from an original price of P2299, then P1799). It suits the leather leggings really well. And it has nice heels (metallic) as accent :)

I'm still checking my clothes to get some idea on what to post. But the thing is, majority of them are dresses. Maybe I'll check for accessories for them the next time. I know I'll get inspirations from the things that I see around me eventually. Good night (or should I say morning already) for now!

3 Days of Shopping: Day 3

I was supposed to return the floral shoes that I bought at St. Francis for Day 2 Shopping.I did not include a photo on that entry since initially, the pair was in green, but because my size is not available on that color, I ended up getting the blue one. And look and behold, I ended up buying all the stuff below (I know, impulsive buying full blast). The only consolation is, the price of these items are really affordable! I always feel proud when I am able to get discount even if just amounting to P20 for an item. And by the way, the first three images can already be an office attire given the right accessories and a matching blazer. I'll post an outfit shot wearing these some other time :)

3 Days of Shopping: Day 2

August 30, 2011

Since I fell in love with the skirt I bought on my previous post, I was determined to find a nice top (preferrably plain) that would go with it. And since I pass by Megamall everyday when I go home, I decided to check Forever21. And I'm glad I did because I was able to buy these two tops. Both of them can be worn with my polka dot skirt. Mission Accomplished! I can't wait to have an outfit photo wearing them :)

Forever 21 - P355.00

3 Days of Shopping: Day 1

It was my birthday last week. What I initially wanted was to check if there is something that I can get myself as gift, like a blouse or a dress. What happened was, I ended up doing this for three consecutive days! I was so into the skirt that I purchased the first night that I wanted to find a nice top that will go with it. I'm planning to wear it on our get together on the 8th.

Below are the items that I purchased from SM Department Store (Megamall). I was really happy that I bought these two :)

Shopaholic - P599.75

Betty - P499.75

First Post!

August 29, 2011

Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog. Actually, this is my second blog relating to fashion/shopping. But the thing is, I did that without having any concrete plans on what theme or main idea to revolve in with regards to my posts. I was not able to sustain it eventually since then.

I have been reading local fashion blogs for months now since I saw that article from Girltalk (yes, I’m also a Girltalk member) , and I can say that they are the ones inspiring me now with regards to styles and trends. But as much as I love the stuff they feature n their blogs, I’m the type of shopper that always check for the price tag first before buying. I do shop at stores but I only choose items that I can afford (I’ve been like this since I am the breadwinner at home). So my style is normally budget friendly. Thus, the posts that you will find here are mostly about discounted pieces, items from bargain/tiangge shops and *drum roll please* places with on going SALE! And I’m hoping that at the end of the day, I can accomplish my goal for this blog: to inspire you to be fashionable, without making your wallet suffer. So join me as I seek for fashion on a budget. Have fun reading!
