joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I’d even cut my hair and change my name
’Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars

Sometimes, no matter how bad or how BLAH a day turns out to be, the disappointment and misery of it all can be masked by good clothes and accessories and a bright smile. Trust me, people can not tell the difference. Especially in my case!

The outfit is still very edgy and rockstar.
I wore the gray version of my Zara pencil high waisted (high and waisted post) skirt with a basic tanktop from the men’s underwear department, a studded belt and matching new Zara shoes to make it work. The Fendi B-bag was merely something to keep all my stuff in place.

It was a very very disappointing Saturday from the very beginning of the day. I was planning to go swimming since it’s been sunny back here for the past two days (I know, I’m sorry for all you back there in the non-tropical regions of the world… I fathom it’s probably freezing to even leave the house in just a tanktop and here I am planning on swimming…but here in my country,where the weather choices are only either raining cats and dogs or on the verge of getting a heat stroke, the beach’s peak season begins on December!!!) I wanted to get get a tan or at least some sunkissed glow since I am looking so pale but things didn’t turn out the way I planned. As always.

So to my utter disappointment, the day started only after 6 pm since there was too much drama in my life. And by the time I left the house, it was too late for even some retail therapy to cure my not so sunny disposition except for a quick bazaar trip where almost all the shoes I wanted were two sized too big for me. So I got more sad. It was supposedly an epic disaster until my boyfriend got me Cheese Ice Cream (Am I weird to love CHEESE ice cream?) and then brought me to a great great baby back ribs resto and at that point, at least one part of me..my taste buds got happy.

After dinner, went to meet up with friends and attended a birthday party for four different boys from the same crew who decided to celebrate together, go all out and treat everyone for drinks and some good ole pica pica. And I mean all out when I say all out. Open Bar from 9:00 pm-3:00 am. Who wouldn’t be “OUT” at that kind of party right? It as so much fun!

Everyone was OUT and INEBRIATED but NOT ME. Since I did not even have a drop of alcohol thanks to my meds which specifically stated in its packet that alcohol is strictly prohibited unless you have a suicide note (haha). So, I drank water instead. But I’m not complaining… it was pretty awesome to enjoy a party where people were tipsy at the very least and be the only sober club attendee.

Saw old friends like Chictopian Nina and Karla (who is the girlfriend on one of the celebrants) and new acquaintances from this site like dizzyrizzy. And I love it. Even without a drop of alcohol, at least I got to dress up and mingle, two activities I totally enjoy so much!

Went home to finally end that day pretty early.* But I have to say, among my top highlights of the day was choosing to wear it since the skirt was very flattering and lengthening and I looked taller than I really am! Plus the tanktop! Who knew a great fit like this would be lurking at the men’s section? Now THAT IS MAGIC!*

Minimal accessories since the belt and shoes were pretty much studs enough for an outfit! It was simple but very very edgy! I loved it since skirts like these seem to always suit me! And the men’s tank was tooo great to use as house clothes so i wore it with the very structured skirt to dress it up!. I hope I did it pretty well. At least that’s one less bad news for me right? TA-TA loves!

Song Inspiration decided by my ipod was Nickelback’s Rockstar which rocked since my studded new shoes were perfect for the look! My Iphone is a genius!

_I’m through with standing in line
to clubs we’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the ninth
and I’m never gonna win
This life hasn’t turned out
quite the way I want it to be

I want a brand new house
on an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
for ten plus me

I’ll need a credit card that’s got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me

*I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name

‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars*
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
_We’ll all stay skinny ‘cause we just won’t eat_
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
Gonna wind up there

Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free

I think I’m gonna dress my ass
with the latest fashion

Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to
blow my money for me

I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair
And change my name

I’m gonna sing those songs
that offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills
from a pez dispenser
When they ask why I drink all day
I’ll say because I can

I’ll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip sync em every night so I don’t get ’em wrong
Then listen to the fans tell me how damn good I am_

BTW: Thanks for everyone who voted for me at http://stylebible.ph for last halloween’s costume!!!! I won!!! I am very very appreciative!!! Seriously! XOXO

interesting combo. the tank is so informal and might seem out of place in the pic. the rest of the outfit, including the bag, on the other hand is very smart. but make them work well together. the combination gave the look a very edgy feel.
joannaladrido
joannaladrido on November 16
Thanks so much! i meant to make the tank contrast the whole polished look and im glad it worked too! haha cheeers!
