Depicting the Third World in style baby.
(it’s that Jedi Robe i’m wearing…)

Although no one really wears stuff like this over here (except for the fashionable freaks here, lol).

It’s kind of sad really because not much here wears fedora hats or boots or “Jedi robes” etc and whatnots for casual wear. At least, not people. Again, only for the fashionable few.

It’s like you’re an absolute head turner here if you dress up in something as “fancy” as that, if you wear boots or a fedora hat, blah. I don’t even consider it that. I think THAT is considered simple, casual wear. RIGHT? RIGHT?
sobs
Honestly, I’m tired with all the traditional, simple, stereotypical dress ups here.
It’s like everyone here is dressed up in skinny jeans and some vintage top or a tank top, then ballet flats or havis. It’s like…COME ON. Glam up a bit will you? Make it comfortable if you must…BUT make it WORK.
It’s like a CRIME here if i wear something as OUTRAGEOUS as that!
WTF. sob it’s like stop looking or get your own fashion sense. Maybe a nice shirt dress from People or something.

Sigh.

If i could just fix everyone up here, like snap my fingers and their outfits would just automatically sparkle/glam up then Third World we shall be called NO MORE.
I’d be like the Fashion Fairy Godmother and this country would be an Almost Third World.
My mission in life.

NOTE: H&M and Hermes are FINALLY going to grace themselves here in the Philippine shores. So I’m really happy about that. More on H&M than Hermes coz I’m not into expensive bags (FOR NOW. Oh. but wait till i get a job….OH NO. lol).

Now the only thing missing here is IKEA and Disneyland.

…Disneyland, Philippines. Lol. haha. It does have a ring to it, I guess. hahaa. That would be really…..WOAH. haha. lol.

I get your point too. I find only verrrry few and rare fashionable people in our country. I do wear the "routine outfit" only when I am not in the mood to dress up. So maybe most people here are not in the mood too. LOLOL..

i love that long cardigan thingie. i love coming home to manila and shopping because there are SO much more interesting clothes there but it's strange that most people dress the same. love your style.

your "jedi robe" is fantastic. i've been to the philippines twice & did nothing BUT turn heads. everyone is so casual there which can sometimes be nice when you don't feel like getting dressed & wearing your pajamas out of the house! haha! but i know what you mean. & girl, don't wish for a disneyland/world. i grew up in Orlando, FL where disneyworld is since i was a baby. tourists EVERYWHERE. =(
