A Bit Like Balenciaga

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Vest: Paradigm Shift / Shorts: Romwe / Bag: Celine / Heels: Mango / Bikini Top: H&M / Earrings: Extremefinds

 I took advantage of the unusually sunny weather during the long four-day weekend and pushed summer a season earlier by donning a bandeau and a pair of Balenciaga-inspired high waist shorts. I've always wanted to come up with a bandeau-as-outerwear look but I kept on it putting it aside simply because I know I don't have the most-toned body in the world. Part of my new year's resolution this year was to pay the gym a visit to work on those flabs, jiggly arms and love handles but that never came into fruition -- I just didn't have the time for it. I'd rather spend my extra time sleeping and eating (haha!). So before you judge me for wearing a tummy-baring outfit such as this, I've already stated my case. I'm fully aware that I can never have a bangin' six-pack abs overnight and with my age, I know I would have to work hard in order to achieve that "dream body". But even without those goddamn toned abs, I'll continue dressing up the way I want. I don't blog to impress anyone anyway nor do I blog to fish for compliments. Makapal na sa kung makapal mag bandeau-bandeau. Tiyan kung tiyan! (Haha!). That's just the way it is. I say, love your body and accept it for what it is. :)

  18. Wow the vest is just perfect! And you can eaaasily pull this kinda look off, i agree, one doesn't have to be size zero to wear....well anything! I'd rather enjoy food and not have the most flattest tummy than be super skinny and exercise like crazy and eat only salad. Lol.

  24. Are you kidding? You look stunning in this outfit.

    Anyhoo, I remember you very well (My guy friend had a huge crush on you kasi. Haha!). You were my classmate waaaay back in college (Kas 2, Dr. Noel Teodoro if I'm not mistaken).

  25. I can't remember most of our classmates either (aside from my blockmates). My friend was so torpe then. Haha. He didn't really have the guts to approach you. He's from NCPAG and he was soooo under your spell.

    Good ol' times. :)
