Today is March 29, 2012. A day to go before I leave for Cebu. I still haven’t purchased enough clothes for the trip so I had to make a dash to the mall and find them. My whole basic plan for my wardrobe during this trip is easy & fuss-free: maxi-dresses and jumpsuits! That way, my luggage would be lighter (although I won’t bet on it) sans heavy jeans and stuff like that. When Mama and I went to Greenhills, I was able to purchase a blue maxi (which I haven’t shown anyone yet since I didn’t vlog not IG-ed it) but that was it. I needed more for my 5-day stay in another city away from home!
I got to the mall at noontime. The only brand I went to is Coco Cabana. (I sounded like a sirang plaka saying the brand over and over again in my vlog) Anyway, I was only allowed to try on 3 dresses per fitting session, so I was in and out the dressing room for like 8 times! I counted! I was there, trying on clothes for 3 full hours! I’m not even kidding. Well, let’s see what consumed my time: taking photos of each dresses & VLOGGING!
Let me show you the dresses I tried on (and which of them I got):
First is this mint green dress (I don’t really know what it’s called)—it caught my eye and I felt some kind of connection! I don’t usually wear this color, but oh mama, I fell in love. Look how flowy! I totally bought it! (PHP 799.75)
Now THIS baby was mine the moment I laid eyes on it. Something about it just attracted me soooooo much! It must be the print! It’s a jumpsuit, by the way. Kind of loose on the midsection, but wearing a belt would help. Totally bought it! (PHP 799.75
This maxi looked really gorgeous. Very matron-ly (as one of my Twitter followers told me) I love how bizarre the pattern is on this dress. The embellished V-neck area was really sexy. Again, I never wore these kinds so it was pretty new to me! I loved it, but I didn’t buy it.
This maxi is pretty regular. It was long. And pink. And surprisingly, I didn’t like it that much. It’s perfect for the beach, though! I didn’t buy it.
Onto swimsuits. This swimsuit is specially designed to give your midsection a curvier look—which I really loved! It’s from the same brand. I didn’t buy this one because…
…I fell in love with this one! It has an asymmetrical design and hugs all the curves in the right places as well! I bought this one. (PHP 899.75)
The other jumpsuits were blech. Made me look fat! So I passed!
I actually left Coco Cabana since I had a hard time choosing which to buy! I went to Burger King to use their fast Wi-fi to post photos via IG and ask people’s opinion. After that, I went to Lay Bare to get some waxing done. After that was I only able to go back to Coco Cabana and pick out my paboritos.
Oh yeah, this is how I looked like before all the fitting!
I forgot to included this in the vlog/IG, I bought this beautiful red long-sleeved top from Weekender. It feels sooooo soft on the skin!!! It’s red, and loose-fitting! Definitely got it. (PHP 699.75)
I spent a lot of money on these clothes. So I am officially grounding myself from shopping for 2 months (in preparation for my 21st birthday as well! I’ve got something grand in mind!)
Before I end this, let me share what I had for a late night drink—PINK LEMONADE! Oh yeah.
And here’s a really short vlog about all my shopping:
