It was a risk for me to actually don such an outfit. To be on this ensemble on a scorching hot weather (kahit December na T_T)? I didn’t mind at all! This is something I’d definitely wear on a music fest. Channeling coachella feel!
Hype this on look on Lookbook here.
I wore this last Thursday to an event at my alma mater. The first comment I’ve received about my outfit was, “Wow, ang exotic ng outfit mo, Kath!” At least, I stood out! 😛
I’ve been itching to wear that beautiful poncho ever since I got it at Bestie Konisis‘ booth at the Blogger’s United 6 (stay tuned for the part two of my adventure). The moment I laid my eyes on this in between the racks, I just knew I had to get it! Look how pretty the fringes are. I also loved how the cream color contrasts my olive skin. And since I’m a sucker for loose clothes (so as to conceal my love handles), the fabric gets an A+ from me! It’s so light, it doesn’t really give that warmth a real poncho should have. I got it for only 150 php, can you believe that?! Yes, it’s such a steal. ❤
I wore a bandeau underneath so I can optimize not only its style but its function as well! I can easily move around and be my frolicsome self without the unwanted peek-a-boos.
I was so curious how Bestie styled the top.. and I literally googled keywords like “bestie” “konisis” “poncho.” Well, the stars aligned. I was able to find it! Next time, I would wear it that way. 🙂 But this time, I decided to wear it with a black bondage skirt. I must say, it is a staple for any girl’s closet. Pair it with a muscle tee, you’re rocking a street style kind of vibe; peplum top and structured blazer, then you’re good for going corporate-ish. LESSON: All you need are the basics and you’re free to mix and match things! It’s your style, after all!
And that Via Spiga boots you see there are from my beyond infinity, di-makabasag-pinggan sa pagka-good friend, Maine and Tita Precy! I was really in search of black boots, and lo and behold, they are now right in front of my very eyes. TuT Thank you so much, Tita and Maine!! I swear I’m giving this pair justice every single time I wear them. 🙂
What do you think of my look? Will Tita Precy like this kaya? Haha!
Until next time, lovies!! :*
P.S. I have new sounds on Soundcloud!! Full of Ariana Grande’s. Hihi. Speaking of A, I’ll be doing a tutorial of her half-up, half-down hairstyle, so watch out for it! 😀
