Flawless Not

First and foremost, I dedicate this blog post to my sister who was sleeping and regaining her energy for her night duty at the hospital when I asked her to take these photos of me. When I saw her na naalimpungatan lang, I immediately grabbed the opportunity! Guess it's not that obvious anymore in the photos of how she took these even after some cropping and straightening. :D Thank you, Dra. for still being able to take good photos. Come on, these aren't really that bad given that she was half-awake and half-asleep that time! Right right? :p

Here's what I wore to a dinner out with family and family friends at Gloria Maris :)

Key piece: the orange bandage skirt. You know what they say, pair tight-fitting clothes with flowy and loose ones. I'm one of those who can't pull off form-fitting clothes because of you-know-one-of-the-things-every-girl-is-conscious-about. Hmmm, not just yet :) :) (Book it!) 

And so I opted for this top which will give people an impression that it's something for the beach when they first see it because of the material and the cut. On the contrary, I instantly imagined wearing it casually when I first saw it. Nonetheless, at least it's one of those pieces you can wear in many ways and places. It's appealing to me so much that I got it in two colors! I can't decide which to get so I ended up grabbing both just because my sister was in sort of a hurry that time when we were shopping. I must admit, that helped. HAHA. Duh, ladies, I know you know the feeling when you're torn between such pretty things. Agree! :p

I actually ended up liking these photos because of the top! A bandage mini skirt x tank top definitely makes a tight-fitting and sort of revealing outfit but the see through top still gives that hint and illusion of curves! At least there's the "feeling". I don't know to you guys but that's how I feel here, eh? :P I already said too much about my top so I think I should say that it's the key piece here? HAHA. Whatever.

Bugging my sister while she's in the middle of her sleep's too much already so taking more photos for the outfit details was a no no! Good thing I have this one on my Instagram. Showing you some details! :)

Souvenirs de 2012

First, I bet almost everyone thinks that compiling pictures from the whole past year, making a collage and posting it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, blogs or wherever is sort of mainstream. I've seen a lot few days before and after the New Year. Posting such thing in Instagram or here in my blog never really crossed my mind and it's maybe because of the fact that I think 2012 had not been a good one for me. 

Last night, I realized that my phone's memory is almost full already so what I did is delete some photos from way back December 2011. Damn, it felt like I was going down the memory lane and I did enjoy it! That alone made me want to post my own compilation of 2012 photos too! On second thought, it occurred to me that it's already mid-January and it seems like everyone has already moved on from the new year hangover. But it's better late than never, right? :) Plus you can't blame me if I prioritize my studies first before my blog that's why I deserve a slow clap. Charot! :p (By the way, prelims is finally over and we now have wi-fi here in the condo which explains why I'm back to blogging :D)

So dear friends, here's my own 2012 photodiary compiled from my files, phone and Instagram! There are quite a lot of photos but I hope you guys stick around until the end of this post. :)

I compiled almost a hundred of photos at first and yes, that was too much for this post until I only came up with the ones above though I think they're still too much. Looking at these pictures proves me wrong and makes me realize that I had a really great year. I realize these photos are beautiful not because of the quality or how they were shot, but because I myself know the stories behind them :) It's never too late to look back at things :)

Okay, this post is sort of melodramatic already. Thanks for visiting this entry, outfit post soon! :)
