I was bold and daring today.
Just like Rihanna.
But nooooo, I did not wear anything akin to what she wore in Barbados!

Malayo. As if naman, e I’m at my fattest ever. But I was bold enough to wear prints on prints. My fashion style is often on the safe side—either very feminine (statement skirts and dresses with simple top and dresses) or classic (statement blouses with denims or slacks). But not today. Here I was:
I have ambivalent feelings about this ensemble. Looking at the photos, I would sometimes be proud of myself for daring to wear prints on prints. Though there were also times when I would think, “What was I thinking?!? Printed ruffled blouse on top of printed leggings?!” Aside from the print-on-print issue, there’s also the issue of my wearing light-colored leggings. Ano’ng issue dun? Yung nae-emphasize kong hitang malaki. I could just imagine Mitch Bincolado saying, “Wow. Your outfit shows your imperfections!” But, whatever. So here’s a closer look at my outfit-ey:
- Sunshine yellow ruffled top from Kamiseta
- Leggings from Simply Vera Wang
- Semi-wedge gladiator sandals from Aldo
- Sunnies from Bijoux Terner
When I peeked into Randy’s photos on this day, I realized that using my floral Cath Kidston bag was overkill. I was like a walking and talking Christmas tree, na ang theme ay yellow. Thus you notice that in my other photos I tried doing away with it. Mahirap ‘yun ha, considering I am a bag person. But in my defense, I was in Tagaytay and the only other bag I had was the The Sak clutch I used during last night’s wedding. It was too small for pasyal. I had no choice but to carry the Cath Kidston bag.
I know that this ensemble could land me in jail, arrested by the fashion police. But, oh well. It’s done. Blame my bulging tummy—almost all of my jeans are too snug now. Leggings make my tummy breathe.
So, is it a Yay or a Nay? Promise, no hard feelings. 😉
