When It Rains, It Pours

I am a little frazzled today; it’s a Friday and I am strapped for time. I have rehearsals at 7pm tonight (all the way in Makati… and the John Mayer concert is tonight, too! Can you imagine the heavy traffic I’ll have to sit through?) and I still have to go back home (Quezon City) to get my shoes. Days like this, I wish I lived in a bike-able city so I could whiz through traffic and get some exercise while at it. Unfortunately, I risk respiratory diseases, dying, and maybe even getting mugged.

It was raining when I left for work this morning so I happily donned gray tights and my thrifted ridiculous knit sweater.

It says Hepburn in silver sequins, lol. The photos are horrible because it was gray and dreary and I had to use my kit lens.

My new floral flats. I got them at the SM Department Store (Parisian FTW) for 399 pesos. Have I told you guys how much I love SM? Everything is affordable and they have a ton of pretty things. I would rather spend my money there (or at Ulysse Nardin, heh) than at, say, Forever21, to be honest.

I’ve missed two days of Insanity but I’m not beating myself up for it. I opted for dorky yoga on Wednesday and I simply did not have time last night (I dyed my hair and had to sleep early. Had to. I ended up going to be at 130am). I’m on recovery week (halfway through the first round of Insanity! Yep, you heard me: I’m not stopping after 60 days) and I just might extend that ’til next week since I won’t have time to work out tonight, either. It’s nice to rest a little but I mustn’t forget that fitness is not a luxury but a necessity.

    Oh oh! Did you know that I went to SM last week to look for that same pair of flats? How come I didn’t find them? I ended up buying floral printed ribbon “ipit” (lol) tuloy.

    I first saw that shoes from Sherica kase kaso I failed. Akala ko sa SM Baguio lang meron (hahaha) but since you bought one here in the metro, babalik uli ako sa SM. =D

    I really love your floral shoes!!! I might drop by Megamall tonight just to get a pair. It’s true, I’d rather buy stuff from SM than F21.

    That thrifted sweater is awesome!! You shop in Anonas right? I’m gonna go there some time. Ever thought of setting up your own thrift store clothes shop? :) Your picks are always beautiful.

    Very cute! This looks much better in person, though, I loved that knit sweater immediately when I saw it. :D

    Hi Helga!

    Love the sweater + flats. Parisian is a favorite brand (err, line), they have cute, wearable designs for super affordable prices.

    Question, where do you ukay? (Aside from Anonas.) :)
