If my outfit can speak, I think it would say: No, I am not what you think I am. I'm talking about the shorts that looks so much like a skirt--A.K.A. "SKORTS". Everybody thought its a skirt but it's actually a pair of wide-legged floral shorts meant to look like a skirt. I can no longer count how many times I've corrected peeps who made a comment about my "skirt". But I don't really mind explaining "Actually, it's a pair of shorts that looks like a skirt." over and over again because I really don't wanna confuse people when I say, "It's SKORTS". LOL. I really don't like saying that word cuz it sounds just as funny as "jeggings". HAHA
BTW, how cool is my skull connector ring?! I got it last weekend but I forgot to include it on my previous shopping post. I wore it today for the first time and loved it to bits! I love how it added a little spice to my vintage-preppy-girly outfit today.

Wore my band leader blazer to work today -- and it got a lot of lovin' from my friends and strangers alike! :P I couldn't be any happier about having this blazer in my life. Aside from the fact the it fits me perfectly and the shoulder pads did wonders to the shoulder area, it also reminds me a lot of some icons I look up to...namely, Michael Jackson, My Chemical Romance, and Balmain.
I was gonna wear it with my Doc Martens today but it was scorching hot this morning so I threw tantrums in front of my closet and wore it with my navy blue Chuck Taylors instead. But when I got home, I changed into my favorite Ninja Wedges for the photos! Haha ^_^
Now I can't wait to wear this blazer again! I'm thinking on going for a full military/band leader look next time. Wish me luck! ^_^
Hey guys! Before I start showing off and bragging about my new stuff, I just wanna say a bunch of TH...
Now let's get down to business.
Just like everybody else, I also love going shopping every payday. The only difference is, while everybody's rushing their way to the nearest mall on a payday, I am busy planning which of my favorite thrift shops to visit first. :)
Today, I went to the ultimate thriftshopping spree. I started around 2 in the afternoon after sending off my mother to the bus station after our morning shopping trip in Divisoria. I didn't see anything I liked in DV so I decided to just go ukay hopping in the afternoon.
And behold the marvelous pieces of treasures I have scored!
WIN. It's not everyday that I find a top with a label that says it's GOOD SHIT and it's SO FUCKING SPECIAL. Pretty cool isn't it? I was really doubtful about the big flowers on the print but I bought it anyway. I have to live up to the "brave new" Niknok Style so I'm gonna look at this top as a challenge. What am I gonna wear it with? How am I gonna wear it without looking like a 40-something-vegetable-vendor from the Mountain Province? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
So there. These are the new marvelous things I'm gonna have to forcefully shove into my closet once again. Sorry closet, you're not going to retire until I say so. So just deal with it. ^_^
For those who would be asking where I went thrifting today, I started in Avenida in Recto, then to Quiapo. That was just the first part though cuz after almost 2 hours of a bus ride home, I dropped by two other thrift shops somewhere here in Pasig. So I got all of these from 4 different thrift shops I visited today.
And if you wanna know how much all of these cost me, they're all around 1,500 Php--approximately $35. Pretty f*cking cheap.
Nothing beats the feeling of coming home after a long and tiring shopping spree, looking at all the pretty things you've taken home with you and realizing you got them all at a very sweet price, and you can skip the part "Shit! I overspent and now I'm all broke again!".
If I went shopping in a mall just like everybody else, I'd probably get only 1 leather jacket in that amount and I'd come home with the bittersweet thought: I have a new jacket, new shoes, new this, new that---but I'm broke now. I'm happy and proud to say I am not that person right now. I came home with all these new things and I'm not even close to getting broke. Behold the wonders of Ukay Shopping. LOL Now tell me, how can I not love ukays? Thrift shops are heaven on Earth. And today, I have just proven once again that I am a LEGEND when it comes to thrift shopping.
PS: Please don't take all the bragging seriously, I just get super cocky when I'm happy. Toodles!
