Budget Outfit: Wearing a Maxi Skirt as a Dress

May 26, 2016

The Budget Fashion Seeker - Forever 21 Red Maxi Skirt as Dress 2

I still remember it was a fine afternoon in Cliffhouse, Tagaytay. I had that amazing view of Taal Lake, I was with good friends and we were at the reception of our very much in love couple friends, Alvin and Abie. It has always been a happy feeling for me to get invited to weddings as it gives me that flutter to see people that I personally know exchange vows and see genuine love and happiness in their eyes.

The Budget Fashion Seeker - Forever 21 Red Maxi Skirt as Dress
I bought this red maxi skirt from Forever 21 few months before 2014 ended. When I saw it, I knew that it something that would work well if I get invited to an event, especially a wedding. So when I got an invitation from a friend,I was thinking on what would I like for my overall look. And I came up with this.

This is a simple look but I love how comfortable and girly it made me feel that day. The full wig that I was wearing, the slit of the skirt-turned-dress, the necklace, and the bag that became my "go to" piece as well made the look put together. I know you might say that it would have been better if I wore heels but it was a a garden wedding so no heels for me on that day. I opted to wear this pair of black wedged sandals that I bought from Payless Shoe Source (see blog post here) since you can never go wrong with black and red.
Want to know another styling I did for this maxi skirt? I'll share it on my next budget outfit so please don't forget to visit my blog. Happy Friday to all!

P.S. To Alvin and Abie, who just celebrated their first wedding anniversary, thanks for making me part of that important day in your lives. Keep on inspiring us that real love exists and that both of you stay happy and in love. God bless!

GOMO: The Answer to FOMO

May 20, 2016

Rocky Mountains National Park, Colorado (August, 2015)

On this age of social media and online lives, more and more people are getting the FOMO vibe: fear of missing out on fun and exciting things happening around us. Just recently, I had that certain feeling of envy not being in Manila for the Les Miserables run. Seeing those post from friends made me feel happy for them, but then sad at the same time that I was not part of it. To think I already missed that broadway show in New York two years ago.

Anyway, it was my decision to take this vacation and I am keen on making a conscious effort to squash the FOMO feeling. My solution? Go for GOMO: go out more often!

Budget Outfit: Ready to Party! (Palace Pool Club)

May 12, 2016

Hello everyone! It is Friday again so I thought of sharing this outfit that is suited for a Friday night out with friends. I wore this last December when our company had its annual Christmas party at The Palace Pool Club. It was my second time to go there (my first was during Alesso event) so I already had an idea what to wear for the party. Choosing these top and skirt from SM Department Store is the perfect outfit for the occasion!

I have been trying to learn more about affiliate programs the past months (I was a member of shareasale.com way back) but haven't really delved into it since I became a member. I have been doing my research on them and it is still an ongoing learning process for me. Having said that, I already have these banners for those shops that appeal to me as part of my baby steps. And one of the shops that appealed to me is StyleWe.

Happy May the 4th! This post is dedicated to all Star Wars fans out there. I may not be a big Star Wars fan but I remember watching it with my father when I was young. And who wouldn't love R2-D2, C3PO and from the latest film, BB-8?! So, I gathered online photos of some Star Wars apparels. These are the ones that I found interesting and that I can somehow wear.
