Reunited and it feels so good!

Months ago I bought a pair of vanilla oxfords from Schu. But something bad happened to it while I was using it in the US (read post here). 

A few days ago I received a gift from them!

My wonderful oxfords! Yey! It was so nice of them to replace it. I so love this pair coz it matches with almost anything. 

See?! Well, not up to dressing up so much yesterday... mommy outfit to a nearby resto.

Thanks to Schu. Thanks to Ruby and Jayjay! Love! Love!

Wish List No. 3?!

There are some brands that bring back memories from my childhood... ok, maybe not that far off. Maybe high school and college.

Keds is one of them. I think I had two or three back in the day. I remember having white and blue. Lately I've been wanting a pair again. This time from their soft washed collection.

Not Too Shabby Laceless in Navy Washed


Mustard... I'm liking this color the best!

Slip on shoes so easy to wear with everything. And I think I'll be needing all my flat shoes in the months to come...

Family of the Day (70s style)

Off to school with my little boy. We were the featured Family of the Day. We were supposed to share something our family loved to do or collected or, just something unique about our family.

We decided to share our love for books. My husband collects reference books mostly on training and customer service. I love romance novels, mostly from the regency period. And we have been collecting Dr. Seuss books for our little Mangu.

Daddy's books

my books

Mangu's books

We read the book "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear" by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle to the kids. Well, I read and my hubby did all the animal sounds. The kids were so adorable mimicking the sounds hubby was making! 

I guess where really a bunch of nerds! Haha! Anyway, since we went to a pre-school, and my son's school is also strict with visitors and the clothes they wear, I ended up wearing something safe. Saw this wide-legged pants from Topshop this morning and started my outfit from there.

top from bazaar; wide-legged pants from Topshop, brown woven belt from bazaar, 
shoes Anthology (Xeng Xulueta collection),
"You Can't Fake Fashion" canvas bag by CFDA; owl necklace and ribbon ring from bazaar 

No make up for the meantime, had some bad reaction to the BB cream I tried. Well, happy weekend everyone! Mine officially started a few hours ago!

Clothes I'll Never Get To Wear

Since I've given up on losing weight... I know I'll never get to wear these dresses unless I go under the knife. And because I've promised that my rhinoplasty will be the first and last surgery I'll get, I will just admire these from afar...

This week on AVA: VIETA on sale and a MELISSA shoe giveaway!

It's bags and shoes for the first half of August on AVA. New this week is the VIETA bags private sale. 

Vieta is known for its impeccable tailoring and elegant designs. International fashion publications such as Seventeen, Cosmopolitan and Instyle featured Vieta bags in the "get the look for less" section of the magazines. Vieta has gained universal appeal mainly because of its success in delivering the best quality designer bags that are trendy and completely unique at an affordable price!

A few months ago, I bought the Deyn bag in black and have blogged about it. Quite a versatile design, I've used in for work and weekend shopping trips.

Now AVA brings you several VIETA bags...

Deyn Handbag is available in three colors: black, taupe and brown... kinda liking taupe

Paige Shoulder Bag

Sienne Satchel

Up to 30% off on these bags. More styles on their site. The VIETA private sale will run from Aug. 5 to Aug. 19!

I really would love to grab a bag from VIETA but I'm also waiting for the next sale! 

MELISSA, our favorite jelly shoes, is next on AVA's list starting Aug. 12 until Aug. 26. Now I can't decide if I should get a bag or shoes! See some of the shoes on sale...

I'm a fan of both brands! Anthology is, of course, my source of comfy shoes. And Team Manila was introduced to me by my brother years ago. He gave me my first shirt. 

What happens when the two collaborate? Here's what happens... the AVENIDA Collection

Shanghai flats with a nationalistic flair. This limited edition collection will be available in Team Manila stores this week.
