joannaladrido 's thoughts:

Went out today to get some boxes and fabric for Glitterati and to go to Nina’s SWATCH event at Greenbelt 5. I needed an outfit that was comfy enough to wear while selecting fabric and at the same time, can transition from day to evening wear to a fierce fashion event and this was it!

I swear I can wear the skirt for one whole day and be totally comfy in it!

Wore the MissBehave Body Electric skirt in Cherry Red that was designed by Nina and I for our Glitterati Online clothing store. Added my Hanes Men’s tanktop in XS and my Monica Fig shoes to finish the look.

99 Red Balloons by NENA

_You and I and a little toy shop,
buy a bag of balloons
with the money we’ve got.
Set them free at the break of dawn,
‘til one by one,
they were gone.
Back at base,
bugs in the software
flash the message,
“Something’s out there.”
Floating in the summer sky,
ninety-nine red balloons go by.

Ninety-nine red balloons,
floating in the summer sky.
Panic lads, it’s a red alert,
there’s something here
from somewhere else.
The war machine springs to life,
opens up one eager eye.
Focusing it on the sky,
ninety-nine red balloons go by.

Ninety-nine Decision Street,
ninety-nine ministers meet.
To worry, worry, super-scurry,
call the troops out in a hurry.
This is what we’ve waiting for,
this is it boys,
this is war.
The president is on the line
as ninety-nine red balloons go by.

Ninety-nine knights of the air,
riding super-high-tech jet fighters.
Everyone’s a super hero,
everyone’s a Captain Kirk.
With orders to identify,
to clarify and classify.
Scrambling in the summer sky,
as ninety-nine red balloons go by.

Ninety-nine red balloons go by.

Ninety-nine dreams I have had,
every one a red balloon.
Now it’s all over
and I’m standin’ pretty,
in this dust that was a city.
If I could find a souvenir,
just to prove the world was here…
And here is a red balloon,
I think of you and let it go._
