An American for a day!

I was supposed to portray Katy Perry for a parade we'll do to open our pharma week, but looking at my wardrobe I don't have anything that resembles the style of Katy. So I tried to analyze Katy's style, I searched the web on what she usually wears and I concluded that she likes having fun with her outfits and loves to wear bright colors. And since our supposed color scheme is red, white and blue I think I can come up with something that can pass through as Katy Perry-ish. 
This photo is so not me, eeeek! So daring! But I like it nonetheless.

Since I was broke that time and already given up searching divisoria for a clothing piece to use for my Katy Perry get up, I just did what any practical girl would do. Be imaginative! For the reason that I am already using colors all I need to do is have fun with my outfit. I incorporated all my favorite items and so I'm ready to make a firework! Get it? LOL

To add charcter and quirkiness to the outfit, I gave my bowler hat a spin.

Bowler Hat: Gelibean Couture

As for my shoes, I decided to wear some crazy high heels. The problem is I don't have any, ironic right? But luckily I have a friend who is all about heels. She has a great collection of rad heels and I thought why not borrow, it's not like it's a crime is it? And because she's such a good friend(?)LOL, no she really is,  she lend me this pretty amazing mary janes. So Thank you Pia! You know her, I mentioned her here in my blog for a million times already. 

After the parade my feet began to hurt and the heels are literally killing me.  So i'm glad I bought these flats with me. You know me I'm never really the high heels kind of girl. And comment if you're not too, so we can conquer the world of fashion with flats *evil laugh*. 


 I decided not to go with my usual poses since my blockmates are noticing that I do the same poses in all of my photos. They even mock me sometimes, mimicking my poses  there's one with me touching my hair, me with my tippy toes and me looking down. So to shaken things up I tried something new. 
What do you think from the scale of 1 to 10? 


So that concludes this post. I'm sorry for the not so high quality photos. We're still trying to figure out what settings to use everytime we do outfit shots. Can you recommend some great camera setting? 

Anyway, this is probably one of my favorite paring and probably the boldest!

My 'Ph'irst Pharma Week

And I'm back! I decided to wait after the pharma week ends before I start to blog again. So expect more posts about the recently celebrated pharma week!

The week started with a parade of different festivals there is ever known. My section got to portray the 4th of July which I'll admit is not bad. We have other choices like Coachella, Mardi Gras, etc. But we ended up being americans, USA!USA!USA!
We walked around the campus and did a performance at the end for all the authority to see. And me being a klutz, oh wait to fully understand the story let me first tell you something. So in the three minute performance we have to do, I was asked to be Katy Perry.  What I have to do is do her pose and lip sync one of her lines. And we're back on the story. So me being klutz in high heels walked faster than told and so there I was with a wobbling shoe almost fell down on my butt, which I think is less embarrassing! And that's the story of when I almost fell down in a large crowd. Very graceful hannako, very graceful LOL. 

Any way, let me just leave you with these photos for you to see what happened that day.
 An overview of our whole class.

We got to ake a picture with wonder woman! Captain Ameirca is around here somewhere LOL

My feet hurts so bad so I have to remove this shoes for a little while. 
 It was fun being Americans for a day. What do you think of our portrayal? Is it believable?

P.S. Look forward for my outfit on my next post!

Marshall, your apartment is crooked!

Last Saturday, my brother and I decided to watch the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. It's what everybody has been talking about in our class the day the movie was screened so they have been giving away the best parts and I just didn't take it anymore so we watched it on the second day of showing. I must say, it's great movie, epic ending and amazing plot.   

Before we talk about the outfit, let me explain to you my title first. Seeing the first picture below? Did you notice something regarding the floor? Yes, the parking floor is crooked! Haha, this reminds me about one particular episode in the How I Met Your Mother Series, hence, the title. I really adore that show. But honestly, their latest season is a little disappointing. I was expecting more out of it because  it's their season finale. Well,  I'm not sure of it so don't quote me on that. Some HIMYM fans out there might hate on me LOL. It's just such a bummer. Nonetheless, I am still a fan and I still want to find out who The Mother is.  If you're an avid fan of HIMYM like me, let me know what you think of the first seven episodes of season eight?  

Moving on, this outfit is an example of a subtle mixing of prints, exhibited by  my top and skirt. I think this is a more classic take on the print on print trend. To jazz it up a little bit, I used my gold kinda oxford shoes. These shoes reminds me of something Camille Co would wear, don't you think so too? 

Top: Thrifted | Skirt: Thrifted

My hair looks so healthy here, I wish it's always like this. 

Bag: Divisoria
Necklace: Accessorize

Accessories-wise, I think I always stick to the line Less is More. I'm not saying I'm against accessorizing or for some excessorizing, actually, I adore accessories. Its just that, on days like this, it's just better to keep it simple. And when the need arises, I'll put my accessories on, and bring it! LOL

Oxford shoes: Trunkshow (Divisoria)
And it's a wrap! This outfit is probably one of my favorite.  It's comfortable and classy, just the way I like it. 

P.S. I just did a haul video on my youtube channel, check it out if you want to :)

Another entry featuring pants you guys! But this time let's talk about the Oxford Shoes!
I believe this kind of shoes are not for everybody's liking. Me myself didn't immediately adore this trend. When oxfords first went out the market I was definitely not a fan. I thought it was too masculine, hard to wear out and it's a puzzle pairing it with my current wardrobe. But then, as I see a lot of it on magazines, fashion media sites and even on hollywood celebrities I eventually liked it, then loved it and now I'm obsessed with it LOL. I can simply say that if I were a shoe I would be a pair of oxford shoes.
Oxford shoes/brogues whatever you want to call it is a classic piece for all women to have.

Here I featured my beige oxford shoes!

Since we went out at night I thought it would be more appropriate to wear pants, you know to avoid lookers and to be warm as well. The key to wear oxfords with pants is to make sure that your ankle bone is seen. This makes your legs longer because it doesn't cut your body in the leg part. 

Top: Thrifted | Cardi: Thrifted(Uniqlo)
Isn't this top lovely? Look at that detail up there, it's a poodle! I know it's a very minute detail but these is the reason why I bought it in the first place and of course the collar itself. A bonus feature is the pastel color! 
Bag: Thrifted
Oxford Shoes: Forever 21

I decided to collect oxford shoes in all colors coz' I just can't get enough of these!
If you do not have a pair yet, I suggest you should go buy one now LOL. 

I mentioned in my previous posts that when I'm at the province, I run every morning. Then I thought why not also do it here.  But then If I were to run everyday, I have to wake up at 5 o'clock in the morning and I think I can't do that. Because first of all I'm not a morning person(for now!) and second is I always sleep late at night because that's the time I do all my businesses in the web. So the solution is.....(drumroll please).. to run at night! I tried it yesterday and it's not so bad. I think it is a perfect way to tire myself so I can sleep earlier to have a good 8 hours of sleep. I want to know your opinion about this. Is more advisable to run in the morning or at night, if were talking health-wise?
