joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I’M FINALLY IN DENIM JEANS!!!!

I don’t get to work a regular office 9-5 kind of job since my heart condition and severe allergies prevent me from living a normal life. As a result, most days when everyone is in the office, I am usually at home resting. That’s how days go by my life and even if it was far from what I dreamed of (my original plan before September 2008 when I was diagnosed was to take up my masters in Neuropsychology in John Hopkins). At that time, I was clocking in time at a hospital, dealing with patients until I ended up as a patient myself. I won’t say I never wonder what might have been if I wasn’t sick but “shoulda, woulda, coulda-s” are pointless. All we can do is our best with the cards I’ve been dealt and so far, this is as good as it gets.

Sorry for the rather melodramatic entry, there’s a reason for that and that’s cause my outfit was rather very corporate this day. I am in love with blazers but my current living situaton, doesn’t really have room for corporate wear. I used to buy tons of blazers and then my boyfriend would kid me that I won’t be wearing them anyway since I can’t work… I always told him that when I buy blazers , at least I can pretend I do when I see him for movies on Wednesdays and for pretend post-work sessions with my girl friends.. Haha. I know it’s quite pathetic but give me some credit… a girl can dream!

Anyway, this outfit is inspired by Olivia Palermo’s outfit in The City, a current reel time television addiction of mine. The girl can be the cattiest person ever but damn does she know how to work a blazer!

The past few days, I’ve still been out of reach since I am forced to stay home and rest as per my mom’s request. There’s been less going out back here given the swine flu scare..

But on a lighter note, Transformers 2 opens tomorrow but I have to wait to watch it until Friday with my friends. If you do have time to go out here in the Philippines, drop by the PINOY CHIC: Designer’s Fair bazaar at the 4th Level Cinema Lobby of Trinoma Mall and check out GLITTERATI and POISONBERRY ;s booth.. we’re in Booth No.8! Go, shop and get a chance to get to purchase your own Glitterati pieces there. We’ll be there June 24-27! Hope to see u guys there! xx

P.S. I’m going to go back to my pretend work now. Hahaha.

i'm absolutely no fan of jeans but i have to admit you look great in them! and about blazer, it's quite funny you love them since when i worked in a very conservative corporate position i used to hate all those women in black tubino and blazers. no antonym! hihi the statement "you love what you don't have" is so true haha
