joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I wanted to still wear pink, white and black for the Sunday Special weekly outing and so I did! I am still very much at a stand still for my dog and it’s still hard at this point. Had her Memorial Service today and my vet took charge of burying her in the dog cemetery somewhere here. My other dog, a pomeranian puppy named Kahlua is ultimately as depressed and devastated but I am quite thankful he’s still there.

And since I felt very very down, I decided to make my outfit more fairy tale-esque and dressed extra special for the traditional Sunday afternoon + mass + Sunday night excursion and I ended up in this. It’s still very Carrie Bradshaw… I seriously wish I had more of Halloween… And I’ve been a fan of these colors since I was a little girl… there was even one time when I was like 12 years old where I went to Hong Kong with my family and shopped for strictly pink, white and black clothes and accessories only. Talk about obsessed. Right?

These 3 colors always brighten up my disposition since I am a big fan of how the contrasts miraculously work together! It might be a bit rockstar princess-ish but I love it. Feminine and edgy is the way to go.

I decided to add a studded belt and a single strand long pearl necklace with a pink corsage pinned to the side of the necklace to hint edgy and at the same time delicate with my clothes…which was the exact state my mind was in at this time.

I had to break out my “brighter than sunshine” playlist on shuffle mode for this one since I refused to wear dark colors today and besides, there’s always something about pink and pearls that make me smile.

*It’s a charmed life
Innocence wild
Crayola skies for a thousand miles
It’s a good life in the happily ever after
Last page of a very last chapter
It’s the story of a charmed life

It’s a charmed life
Unexplainable grace
Stumbling, you fall right into place
It’s a childlike world and you can feel the magic
Far from the typically tragic
That’s the beauty of a charmed life

Who needs to know
When it all comes and where it all goes
Who needs to know just where
Fate will take you there

It’s a charmed life
Innocence wild
Crayola skies for a thousand miles
It’s a good life in the happily ever after
Last page of a very last chapter
It’s the story of a charmed life*

We watched House Bunny which was a funny movie which was what Anna Farris movies had a trademark for. The outfit worked for the rather impromptu last screening decision. Ended up going home after midnight which is late for a Sunday but it was a feel good movie and I needed to feel good, after losing my dog, really.

I did.

One line that totally made me laugh out loud was, “Who knew that steam would be like hot?”

Cheers! Thank you for everyone who wished me well and gave nice comments regarding my last post about my dog. Everyone was so nice to do that! You guys rule! XOXO

i love the flower in the necklace. the look doesnt seem very pink. i think pink here is a better option than for example red, which would give a much more ordinary look. And i have to say i love anna faris
joannaladrido
joannaladrido on November 03
Thanks dear! =) im glad the black and white skirt somehow balanced the look =) haha yes and sometimes pink + black and white works wonders! its sweet and edgier as an accent! haha and she is hilarious!
