AND then some...

Can I just share my new "addiction"? It's obvious that I'd rather buy shoes than clothes. I actually love bags too but I'm lucky to have a mom with a closet full of bags that I can borrow. I seldom buy. But I feel bad I just repeat my outfits over and over again because I don't have variety in my wardrobe. 

So, now I'm trying to buy more clothes. Right now I'm into this brand I found on Catalogue 63, an online store.

Check out AND Apparel...

tuxedo shirt (i have this!)

front-ruched tee

loose square tee (i have this too!)

loose tank

maxi t-shirt dress

fitted side-ruched dress

I just ordered these...

I am embracing my new body, my mommy-body... so I go for darker colors and loose shapes that hide those things I want to kept hidden. LOL! These tops go well with skinny jeans - hides my muffin top - and maxi skirts. Hope they come out with more designs!

Panic Buying at Schu

So, I brought my mom to the closing out sale of Schu in Shangri-la today. I wasn't planning to get anything since the last time I was there I already got what I wanted. But whenever I'm with my mom shopping, we always go crazy.

I don't know the official tally. I just know know I ended up with four shoes and one sandals. My mom even got sandals for my son's yaya and her yaya. The thing is, since it's buy one take one, we had to get even numbers. And just when we thought we were done shopping, my mom would find something she'd like. Then we'd need another pair to "take one". 

Sorting out time...

My loot...

Ended up buying the boots my BFF bought. Both colors.

I didn't see this pair last Wednesday. It was in my size!

"Ang dami!" These are all my mom's. I think she's trying to beat Imelda. She still has some shoes from our US trip last month I think she hasn't worn yet.

We have monsters under our bed... they're all shoe boxes. And I'm running out of space. Either I get a bigger bed... or better yet, turn one of our guest room into a shoe closet.


I met some wonderful people from Norway during my grad school days. I join others in condemning these senseless acts of violence.

Prayers to you all.

My First Schu Boots

And Apparel tuxedo shirt; Forever21 skirt; Schu boots with cutouts

Last night I went to the Shangri-la branch to check out the last remaining shoes on sale. The two pairs I wanted were no more to be found. I was so stupid not to get it when I saw it. Felt really bad about it. Was surprised that they were selling items for P799 - buy one take one! I thought nothing would fit me since there's not much left in my size... but the shoe gods were looking down on me and I got these boots!

My friend who was also with me, was pressured to get a pair too! Imagine almost P400 for a pair of Schu?! Crazy right?! She ended up getting this one...

There were more designs for bigger feet. Like for sizes seven to ten. I bet I would've gotten more if only there were more that fit me. But totally happy with my loot... even if I promised I'd be on shopping ban til December.

On my way home tonight, my BFF called me and told me she also went to Schu in Shang to see if she could snag two pairs too... she told me she got these...

Good job BFF! I'm planning to take pictures of them while wearing their shoes.

Conchita with her Lita

I don't like my outfit shots that day. It was my mom who took it and she needs some more tips in taking pictures. 

Last Sunday, I got to wear my Jeffrey Campbell Lita I got from AVA for our school's Golden Anniversary. I attended the Alumni Homecoming celebration. Notice the fascinator? Our batch decided that this was going to be our "theme". Instead of wearing a batch shirt or color.

notice how far my mom was?! and the little boy wanted in too!

she asked me to sit down to showcase the shoes! LOL!

You Can't Fake Fashion

Council of Fashion Designers of America and eBay have joined together to fight counterfeiting by coming out with the "You Can't Fake Fashion" tote. CFDA also called on 50 famous designers to design one-of-a-kind totes to be sold in the Fashion Vault of eBay.

Basic Tote

The basic bag is $35 and proceeds will go to the CFDA Foundation. But the lovely unique bags designed by the likes of Anna Sui, Badgley Mischka, DKNY, Coach, Catherine Malandrino, Brian Atwood, are sold for $150. And last time I checked they were all sold out! 

Here are some of my favorites...

Foley + Corinna

Kenneth Cole

Reed Krakoff

3.1 Phillip Lim

I'm sure these babies will pop out somewhere again for sale. As for me, I'm waiting for the regular tote to arrive. As much as I want one of these babies, I'd rather not pay more than what it was originally sold.

Kermit in your closet

Kermit Tesoro goes online! You can now check out his designs and purchase shoes online via 

Remember the skulls on the heels and those heelless shoes? You can now indulge your adventurous side and grab a pair.

Clothes will be coming soon.

He's one of my favorite designers. I love the play on texture and the dark, but whimsical designs of his clothes. It's not mainstream but you really have to be an artist to think of these designs. So fab!
