I've long been searching for the perfect maxi skirt (I say perfect a lot, don't I?). It took me a while but I finally found it in the prettiest old rose shade...and in Hong Kong no less! I had to haggle hard to get it, so much so that the seller felt so exasperated and finally accepted my offer and ended with a, "You are Filipino, yes?"
Yup, Filipinos know how to drive a hard bargain.
I wore this to the office last week and everyone said I looked like a fairy. One of our *few* male employees quipped, "FYI I am straight, but I really like your skirt." The image above is am "ambush" photo taken by our graphic artist, Farhannah, in the conference room.
While Lauren and I were walking off our full tummies in Powerplant Mall, she spotted this cool jacket in NAVA. She was really dead set on getting it, but it didn't fit her voluptuous frame. So since it was the last piece, I got it instead (actually Mark got it for me, but that's a story saved for a future blog post).
It goes perfect with the skirt as it adds toughness to my otherwise girly outfit:
|Jacket: NAVA | Top with embroidered detail: Kashieca | Maxi skirt: Hong Kong | Sandals: Payless Shoesource|
Ah, this has to be one of my favorite outfits. The jacket is really such a good buy, it keeps me warm in the office and the stretchy back and sleeves make sure that it conforms well to my body. Thanks Lauren for this great find :)
