Fashion Bum

No, I may not be the best dresser there is. But I do dress according to what I'm feeling or my mood. Most of the time I dress according to the weather. And I dress according to what I own. And I'm proud to say I mostly own thrifted gems. I love my vintage buys because of their durability and their endless style. And yeah--I'm blabbing. Sorry.

Anyway, it was my first day at Fashion School! I had a lot of fun. I was thinking of enrolling in 4 classes, and I started with styling first. I don't know why haha. I'd like to think I more or less know what I'm doing when it comes to styling, but after this day I realized I still have a lot to learn (well, if I wanted to make it in this business, which I'm not sure I want. All I ever wished for is to sell clothes, hee). But I'm super excited. I can't wait for our next class. :)

Oh! And I have a very cool teacher--John Herrera. He's wonderful. And hot. I hope he doesn't read this. Lol.

Here's my very first mood board! Theme is: All Boys School.

And I felt like a prep student again as I went on a school supplies shopping spree (well--it was only for a sketch pad, scissor and glue) at National bookstore. And I bought a lot of magazines. Haha. Babaw. But it's like Polyvore in real life! :P Fun.

Anyway, here's what I wore to school! The sun was blazin' again and the heat super unbearable. Even the comfiest outfit won't do under this unforgiving ball of fire.

Wearing: thrifted blazer, vintage stripes shirt, Forever 21 shorts,
belt from my sister, Cotton on flats, Liz Claiborne bag.

Can't wait for our next class! Such a fun way to kill time.

Oh, and for my fellow Pinoys. In light of the coming national elections, I hope you're all brave and smart enough to vote for the right candidate. Don't vote because of popularity, or don't follow lead. Don't vote for someone just because your congregation tells you so. Remember--you're voting for your future and your children or future children's future. God Bless us all. :)
