Details on Trends: Now and then

Deciding on what to blog about on a Saturday night is a really cliche job for a tired little kitten like me. I've had a really tiring day and my fingers are too idle for me to still blog about what happened today. Anyway, I was scanning through clothes, magazines, books, random thingymajigs, and TADAAA!! *light bulb moment* I saw theses three accessories I recently bought and as I was looking at some, I noticed how the details on these trends differ from each other. I also chose 3 of my favorite accessories 2-3 years ago.. Yep, back in the days when I still wasn't that trendy. Seriously, I would just grab a top and an old pair of jeans/shorts from my closet and BAM! I now have an outfit.
Okay. Let's proceed, yes?


Now- Vintage trend. Who doesn't love vintage? Polka dots, collars, pearls, and huge details! Basic colors (mostly pastel colors) What I love the most about the rising vintage trend is how they could really ensemble and add a lot more impact to your outfit. 

Collar necklace

Marble necklace

Bendable (wired) Bracelet/Ponytail from TRUNK SHOW
 This one is my favorite, a really pretty vintage bracelet that you can also use as a ponytail. I've seen a lot of these kind of DIYs, oh boy am I excited! 


Then- Still the Vintage Trend except for the pink beaded bracelet. This trend focused more on the 'pendant', with the simple 'old looking' chains. I noticed how it was drawing attraction not as a whole, all the attention given to the piece since the chains were just simply "chains". These are perfect for simple tops; a printed/detailed top would make it really confusing, and the pendant would be harder to identify (especially when you are particular about details. Though this trend is still not behind our backs, I could still call it trendy. 

Vintage necklaces (both gifts from friends)

Pink beachy beaded bracelet (got it from mom)

Yup! That's it. Good thing my mind was able to contain everything, haha. I'd be posting more opinions/trends/and details on details to widen my blogging horizons. I wouldn't want my blog to be limited to just outfit posts and updates, well sharing thoughts about 'what's new' would be nice, don't you think? Tell me what you think about the writing style I'm currently working on. Don't hesitate to comment, thanks! :)

Sunny in Manila

Shoes: Charles & Keith
Tribal top: Thrifted

You can never go wrong with Tribal on a sunny day, eh? I'm loving the detail of this top, especially those gold outlines on the edge of the collar :) 

Can you believe it.. that top was just thrifted! <3 You don't have to be spending all your pennies just to be fashionable, you also have to be practical ;) 
Anyway, I also bought some more items from thrift stores, and oh boy.. they're really really good buys!!!

Wandering Free

Shoes: Charles and Keith
Mom's Bag

Sorry I haven't been posting my looks here, ugh my blog was idle for a week. Anyway, these photos were taken 2 weeks ago. I wasn't able to upload it that day because our internet suddenly got caught up :( lol I had no choice but to wait. Thank God, it's now fixed :) 

I love how my shoes matched that huge bag! It was half empty when I used it, I'm not really the kind to bring lots of things during Sundays haha.

It's here to stay

As I sit here with a cloud above my head, I've felt what I though was already gone. The part of me where I could talk about anything without a single word bothering me- no chills, no heavy feelings on my chest, not a single skip of a beat. I realized how things could bring back memories and feelings you thought you've already forgotten. I tried reading a book again. I tried, but I ended up writing down thoughts that my mouth couldn't speak. Somehow the words brought something back, something I couldn't figure out. That usually happens to me, feeling a slight bit of familiarity but I don't know how to describe it or when I felt the same. I knew it, it's still here and it is here to stay. I'd appreciate that because at times I still feel lost despite all the success I've had; lost in spaces along the lines I had no chance to read.

I'll Be Waiting

Bayo Top
Charles & Keith Heels 

So this is what I wore to the fellowship, Lol Thank you Mom for letting me borrow her necklace. It's heavier than it looks, really! :D
Thank God it's Sunday, I learned a lot from today's talk. Time flies so fast, this is actually the last Sunday before I go to school again! Yup, summer's over :( Well that doesn't mean you already lost the spirit of summer because there's always another to look forward to :)
