OOTD: After Gig Decent

I really feel like an indie singer who just got home from a gig somewhere in Morato or Malate
which explains the title of this blog post.

Anyhoo, I just wanna share my shopping experience last week with my sister.
I am really not into buying stuff in the mall (unless it's my parents who will pay for it. LOL) but then I needed to buy clothes since I am running out of things to wear for work. So we went to SM Department Store, yes I frequently visit the dept store but never buy anything unless badly needed just like this instance. But then I fell in love with it. They really stepped up their game huh, cause they are selling nice and quality yet budget friendly clothes. This top I am wearing here in this photo, believe it or not I bought 2 shirts and it just costs me Php200 (well, cause they do have a buy 3 take Php100 off promo) and they're selling it for like Php149.95 per shirt. Not bad for a graphic shirt lover, eh? Planning to buy more and turn it into muscle shirts and they do have a lot of designs too. 
These pants I am wearing is just too comfortable and it fits just fine in my thighs plus it makes it look slimmer (well, because it is black). I super love these buys and I would really love to check out the dept store more often. I am just too in love.

See my shoes? Yes, yes, never thought I'd be owning one but then I guess shoes are really my weakness.
Bought it online cause they're like selling these in GH for like 10K as if it was a legit Isabel Marant.
I like these because it has different textures like the suede/ velvet plus leather and additional oomph because of the brown-orange-ish sole, it is just really perfect to pull off a grunge yet classy look. You feel me?

D i v i d e d

I seldom dress up for work. I don't think it's necessary. I don't see it as a runway. You just sit there for 8-hours, so no need to dress that awesome up. At work, I am with my usual t-shirt-cardigan-jeans-flats ensemble which, according to my friend Jay, makes me look old and that it seems like I am going to the market or a student who will just complete her requirements and honestly, that hurts. I usually don't care but coming from a friend, that hits me a lot. Offended.

Hence, it made me decide to spend my Sunday afternoon thrift shopping last week.
I was supposed to buy sweaters and pullovers which are really my thing nowadays or ever since.
But failed to do so coz I was too lazy and the shops I've been too was on their mid-sale already so almost all of the good stuff are gone. When I was about to give up, a rack full of sneaks caught my attention.I know, I know, I just recently purchased a pair of wedge sneakers last August (which I will be blogging about soon, here) and that I should restrain myself from buying another pair. But then, I saw this pair of lovely thick-soled sneakers, tried it on, voila! T'was love at first sight, well actually sort of since I am really planning to buy a pair of all-black Vans classic but they only have it in their lo-pro which is too thin for me, so I guess this is thick enough for me. Meeh~
