inKARLcerating 's Thoughts:

The people around me (e.g. friends, colleagues, family ) are always always vigilant on how would i appear whenever there’s a quiet get together inside a coffee house or a movie date or a trip to the nearby grocery. Oftentimes whenever they’d see me in my Cheap Mondays and Doc Marten’s they would ridiculously ask me if imma go t0 , say, a club scene or somewhere very flashy.

What i do to trim down the whole look is i leave my hair unkempt and rumpled.. i dont think too much on what accessories would match.. and about the leather shoes? oh i intentionally leave it a bit withered and dusty..

sometimes i’d wear these geeky glasses and a big bag just to weaken other factors that make the whole me attention-grabbing(accdg. to some)..also it makes others think that ima just head out to school haha

Anyhow, if there’s a lesson or two i learned in finding my personal mantra when it comes to dressing up is to never take it too seriously and i know a lot will really relate to this as well..

my advise : Wear a sequined tank top to visit a friend in the hospital or pick yer 5 inched Louboutins to buy cabbage and pickles at a nearby grocery …crazy i know , but life is too short for limitations..for inhibitions and fear.

today, i wore my new found love: a black suede wedge from Nine West.

my girlfriends told me that wedges are friendlier than pumps and platforms : NOT!!

I went to a friend in Makati to get the stuff that he borrowed 2 seasons ago and while enjoying the instant height and posture them shoes give, i couldnt hide the tender pain it brings to my tarsals… i mean the bones on my toes.. Nevertheless, i enjoyed this experience. fashion masochism , yes?

the prominence of man-heels and wedges on the runways led to this personal championing. the juxtaposition of these horse-like shoes to one’s skinny legs is but a winsome sight.

i also enjoyed wearing Mike’s gift: the sweater cape which has a very interesting zipper details on the front. Very Rad Hourani indeed..

by the way, i dyed my hair lighter..

I love your style. It's so unique and seems to fit your personality so well. That being said, that vest and it's interesting shape is awesome.

I've decided that I would have more fun with what I wear when going out. I wear heels more then I did when I was younger. I remember once I was going to the store just to pick some things up. I had a LBD on and some cute wedges, I was asked if I was going out anywhere. Of course I wasn't, but I felt it was nice to wear something other then just jeans and a t-shirt.

haha, wedges feel a lot more stable than heels/platforms -- especially at 5 inches! but you're right in that they still kill your toes....nevertheless, i love that you're rocking those wedges. :)
