joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

Philippine Fashion week outfit! I watched child-prodigy SASSA JIMENEZ show off her Spring/Summer 2009 collection which was breathtaking.

Seriously

She is such a wonder-kid. At 21 years old, she designed a very well constructed show featuring cocktail and couture gowns and even wedding gowns! She graduated Cum Laude at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA and this show I watched was her stepping out collection.

And was I amazed.

I loved her clothes that at some point I even got goosebumps.

For those who know me, you’d know I don’t get weak in the knees when I am in love, I get goosebumps! And there were 3 dresses I could not help but get goosebumps for! My cousin Kix was laughing. Fashion will always be my first love. Apparently

Shopped at Rockwell after. I needed the therapy after eating porridge the whole day- Blech! Anyway, I am happy with how this outfit turned out! I love my mom for the classic pieces she kept for me to use especially the shoes, the belts, the bags and the jewelry! Haha! I can seriously build up an entire wardrobe from the things she saved and passed on to me very recently! It also helps that we have the same bag taste, the same shoe size and the same waist line back when she was in her twenties!

I am seriously that kind of girl who loves to mix and match and keep things classic with a few inherited vintage pieces! I don’t really need everything to be brand new… And I think all of you especially those I love seeing in vintage reworked clothes understand! XOXO
