joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I’m missing out on chictopia time lately since I barely have time to sit and use the computer. As predicted, the week is very stressful. My friend and I will be launching our clothing line, Glitterati this FRIDAY, December 19 at PIEDRA at the Fort and we are inviting everybody and anybody who’s willing to come!

(Well, Filipinos anyway!)

I wore this outfit to a dinner meeting with Laur, Lyca, Nina and myself at Cibo to discuss Friday’s event. The past days, I’ve been everywhere discussing details and plans and I love it! SERIOUSLY! It may be stressful and tiring but it’s fulfilling since at the end of the day, I know i’m doing something I love to do! And I’d rather be doing this than anything in the world.

It was a simple al fresco dining since the weather is cooler lately (Christmas is in the air!!!) so I went for a basic black top, a white highwaist tulip skirt and black accessories to toughen the look. I got the zipper leather cuff from the Rockwell bazaar and it cost me about P100 or $2. I didn’t wear any belt since the skirt had a bow detail but its not really seen since the flash was bright in my camera. I felt very film noir so no color but black and white would work.

Anyway, the 9 day Christmas novena mass started today as well and for the past 7 or 8 years, I’ve been going until now. It was supposed to be my 9th SIMBANG GABI year but I was not allowed to do it in light of my condition. I never really felt Christmas until those masses and now I am so envious of everyone else doing it.

And I am not feeling Christmas-y at all considering I should since it’s my favorite holiday and all. I don’t know why but everything is on the down low this year. Recession?

MODERN DAY DELILAH

She’s a wizard with her shears
She’s been turning heads for years
All the darlings and the dears say she’s got the touch
An exclusive clientele
Oh she knows each one so well
No one dares to kiss and tell

She’s a modern day Delilah
Keeps her scissors razor sharp
Once she finds your weakness
She’ll cut you to the quick
Stab you in the heart
She’ll love you like a lion
Leave you like a lamb
She’s a modern day Delilah
She’ll cut you if she can

Oh she’s sure what’s right for you
Slips it into your shampoo
Only she knows if it’s true
Blondes have more fun
When you wake up on the floor
All your strength swept out the door
Take a mirror from the drawer
The damage is done

She’s a modern day Delilah
Keeps her scissors razor sharp
Once she finds your weakness
She’ll cut you to the quick
Stab you in the heart
She’ll love you like a lion
Leave you like a lamb
She’s a modern day Delilah
She’ll cut you if she can

She’s the keeper of secrets
Mistress of lies
You’ll see a cold steel blade
When you look into her eyes
She’s a modern day Delilah
Keeps her scissors razor sharp
Once she finds your weakness
She’ll cut you to the quick
Stab you in the heart
She’ll love you like a lion
Leave you like a lamb
She’s a modern day Delilah
She’ll cut you if she can
She’s a modern day Delilah
