Second post! I'm sneaking this in with loads of school work that I have to do. Things are getting really stressful now, but I guess what gets me going is the thought that these will be over soon. I guess life is just really fond of making us suffer before all the good stuff haha.

Well anyway, I'm posting about my OOTN last night! I attended a friend's debut. Black and pink were prohibited, so I really had to find a new dress because-- for some odd reason-- most of my dresses are black. So much for LBD haha!

I'm not complaining though, because I just found this perfect dress! It's one of those things that make me feel like a legit blogger, because I've seen fashion bloggers wear it. So when I saw it, I knew I had to get it. I just love the cut because it gives me the curves that I don't have, really! I loved the color too. It's bright, and that's something new for me. It stood somewhere between yellow and lime green. What was funny was, at the party, in the photobooth, the camera thought my dress was a green screen! So in the pictures, I looked like I was part of the background lol.

Before buying the dress, I already knew the accessories I'd wear with it. I thought of colorblocking. I already had a pink clutch at home which I really bought for colorblocking, so that was a check on my list.

What I went to hunt for were earrings. The dress had a sweetheart neckline, so I had to accessorize on the upper part. I went with dangling earrings instead of wearing a chunky necklace. I wanted to get blue tassel earrings, but couldn't find any. Anyway, I found these chain ones which were just as lovely! Where I found it, you'd be surprised! Sometimes you just find the best pieces in the most unexpected places. The ring was just something I grabbed on impulse before I left the house. It's prolly not obvious in the photo, but the gem is actually violet.

For the shoes, I just went with nude to tame things down. Since my outfit had gold accents, I wore my spiked heels which were one of the pairs I wore during my debut (which I will post about soon, by the way!). The spikes actually popped one of the balloons on the floor in the party last night, oops.

Moving on from the accessories to the makeup! (Smooth transition there, yeah) I usually go for winged eyeliner for parties, but this time I did it with a twist. Instead of using eyeliner to "wing it", I just used eyeshadow! Got the inspiration from Sam Pinto's Instagram photo (I don't even remember how I ended up there).

Next, my hair. I really didn't know what to do with it. I didn't want to let it down because that's my usual look. I first planned on a donut bun, but I figured it might make me look a lot like an Oriental girl (which I actually am so lol), with the winged eye makeup and all. So I thought, why not braid it, a la Elsa of Frozen? (in line with that, I would like to thank my mom for braiding it for me hihi) It was later on when I realized that, just appropriately, my dress was off-shoulder too like Elsa's.

So there, that's last night's outfit broken down. For today, I decided to wear something summer-y. Too bad I forgot to wear shades. I realized getting hit by the sun in the eyes helps you look tough in pictures though, lol.

The denim vest was something that I found someplace I never shopped at. The skirt was something given to me I think a year or two ago. It was big for me, but it was too cute I couldn't let it go. So I'm glad I had a fitclip (that's the black thing on the photo above; clipped it at the back, so it was hidden by the vest)! Bought it from Renouveau Manila. They sell inside the campus because they're by students, but they sell online too!

Oh by the way, we went to Century City Mall. A lot of the stores aren't open yet, but it's nice there. We tried out CaliBurger. It was very reminiscent of In-N-Out! Not too far from that, I say. Loved their chocolate milkshake though!

So that was my weekend. Back to school-- well, not like it left me anyway, with all the projects huhu. Anyway, hope you enjoyed reading! I added a 'Subscribe Via Email' feature on the side btw, so you guys might want to try that. Thanks!!
