joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I bought Givenchy-esque Gladiator sandals from Anthem last week and I gave my Zara studded heels a rest and finally got to wear them today. People who frequent Rockwell would recognize it from the window display! That’s how I saw it and loved it.

I knew I loved these shoes when my very faulty eyesight (I wear contacts with grade for my eyes) all of a sudden became a zoom-in worthy, perfect eyesight 20/20 vision. I saw them from the escalator while going up to the next floor and I had to go back down again to try them on.

Very inspired by Proenza Schouler Spring 2008 Collection and this photo HERE was my inspiration. I love it so much!!! I did not expect to come up with something to resemble it!!!

The weather was crazy today that can be characterized to be as bipolar as my fashion sense…sunny or cloudy, the sky could not make up its mind! And so, to play it safe, I wore this outfit just in case it turns out to be scorching hot and brought along my draped coat just in case it rains or the temperature drops.

It ended up being a sunny day. But then again, the airconditioning system in Rockwell today, where I attend Sunday mass, was totally berserk and I froze to death in the chapel. I was not quite sure if that was to go with the theme of their Winter Wonderland display of teddy polar bears and siberian huskies/ North pole animals but it was too much to bear. Good thing i had my coat stashed into my HUGE bag which kept me warm during the one hour service. It pays to be prepared even if my mom commented if I was staying overnight somewhere since my bag was huge. I didn’t care. I love my YSL Muse, thank you very much! I can just stash everything in it!!!

Did the traditional Sunday route of mass, window shopping and dinner with the boyfriend only. My brother was absent since he had to pick up his girlfriend from the airport. She came from Vietnam and bought 7 pairs of shoes in a span of 2 days! (I cannot wait to see them all!!!) I got a pair of animal print (Zebra or something) gladiator sandals from People are People that I loved so much at the not so bargain price of PHP 1,099 or $20. I need to stop buying shoes. I will literally go bankrupt and be that lady from the nursery rhyme…the one who literally live in her shoe. Compared to the fab finds of people for less than PHP 50 (Yes, sweetlilducky and lilmissr, i am referring to you thrift store goddesses), I am starting to reconsider my spending on clothes. But shoes are a different story.

The outfit is a combo of black and brown which according to old school schmool fashion rules must never be mixed or worn together. I say to hell with those rules. Rules are meant to be questioned, defied and amended anyway. I love black with brown and as long as I am happy with it, I deserve to wear it. Right?

Wore a black cotton poufy eyelet hem skirt from Terranova, a white tanktop and my brown pinstriped vest from Zara. I needed a belt since I am all for belts so I added a brown thin studded belt that came with a plaid Zara dress I got last year to complete the look. This matched with the Givenchy-esque gladiator heels and my YSL Muse. Layered my gold chain necklaces (about 4-5 of them) to accessorize. The draped coat, I went with just in case, the girlscout that I am!

It’s simple, I think, but it worked for me. And it was perfect for a confused weather day. I loved wearing this one… but let me know what you think! I am interested… Cheers and till the next outfit (hahaha) XOXO!

Song inspiration for the post is Dave Matthew’s Band classic song, CRASH INTO ME. I realized how much I missed it from a few years back when I heard it again today. I love this song!!!

_You’ve got your ball
you’ve got your chain
tied to me tight tie me up again
who’s got their claws
in you my friend
Into your heart I’ll beat again
Sweet like candy to my soul
Sweet you rock
and sweet you roll
Lost for you I’m so lost for you

You come crash into me
And I come into you
I come into you
In a boys dream
In a boys dream

Touch your lips just so I know
In your eyes, love, it glows so
I’m bare boned and crazy for you
When you come crash
into me, baby
And I come into you
In a boys dream
In a boys dream

If I’ve gone overboard
Then I’m begging you
to forgive me
in my haste
When I’m holding you so girl
close to me

Oh and you come crash
into me, baby
And I come into you
Hike up your skirt a little more
and show the world to me
Hike up your skirt a little more
and show your world to me
In a boys dream.. In a boys dream

Oh I watch you there
through the window
And I stare at you
You wear nothing but you
wear it so well
tied up and twisted
the way I’d like to be
For you, for me, come crash
into me_

Very chic, I like how you belt the vest! Btw this friday I had your Zara heels in my hands. They're really cool and I would have also bought them if they had been my size. As for the lady living in her shoe: don't you think she must've been very happy?
joannaladrido
joannaladrido on November 24
Thanks honey!!! i could not resist not adding a belt! hahaha oooh dear thats too bad!!! why did they not have your size??? :( and as for that girl in the shoe...i love it!!!! hahaha id have no problem with that hahaha xx
