Yes ladies and gentlemen, I have finally accepted the term. I realized that after six years of being married, OK na sa akin matawag na “Misis Ladaga”. ‘Yan ang breakthrough ko on that day.
But still, I refuse to look like the quintessential “misis“.
For our super wholesome sixth anniversary celebration, I wore something super wholesome as well (but not misis-y, I hope). Here I was on my and Randy’s anniversary:
At para medyo sensual kunwari:
Now here’s a closer look at the outfit details:
white chiffon dress: SM Dept. Store
shoulder bag: Cath Kidston
green wedge sandals: Grendha
Since I’ve already related in detail how our our anniversary went, let me just tell you stuff about the pieces I wore on this day, particularly the dress and the footwear.
Let’s begin with the white chiffon dress. Last summer when we were assigned to teach and spend the night in Metro Manila, my two colleagues suggested we drop by SM Megamall to buy clothes. I agreed, because the clothes I left in our condo were almost all skirts that were knee length. Eh remember na pinapak ng mga surot ang legs ko?!? So I had to buy jeans, or a skirt or a dress that fell way below the knees. I was actually helping my colleague (who had just given birth) to buy her dress. Then I saw that dress. Guys, tinamaan ang puso ko ng pana ni Kupido agad-agad! Alam n’yo namang weakness ko ‘yang may mga beads-beads, or anything that, as my friend Irvin put it, “Mga damit na parang andaming nangyayari at komplikado.” At first I was egging my colleague to buy it, especially when I saw that it cost only about P700. Although admittedly, pinagsisigawan ng puso’t damdamin ko na sana ‘wag niyang bilhin para ako na. My colleague must have heard my heart speak because she did not buy it. So I swooped in and rushed into the dressing room. And I love, love, loved it even more—it definitely did not look trashy aaaaaand it hid my imperfections (ehem, bulges) well. ‘Di ba?
Now let’s talk about the footwear.
I got this pair early in the summer. Legal na legal ito, because it was Randy who told me to buy new pairs of footwear. Bakit kamo? Pambayad sa krimen ng prized bull mastiffs n’ya. Take a look at Khaleesi and Khal Drogo’s victims.
Para bang walang nangyari? Take a closer look at my pang-“everyday”, three-year old flats:
And what about my five-year old trusty old Crocs wedges?
At pati ba naman ang Havaianas wedge slippers kong 4 years old na!
Grabe! I every so often told Randy that even if Crocs and Grendha and Havaianas were quite expensive, sulit naman because they were sturdy: they survived my long hours of shopping, of teaching, and even of running after Raviv! But the two bull mastiffs gave them their early retirement.
But what really miffed me was the destruction of one of my favorite “fancy” and unique footwear: my suede sandal-bootie Zara wedge! Look:
Randy felt guilty that his precious dogs “mistook” my beloved footwear as teethers or bones. Thus he told me to buy new footwear. Which of course, I did.
Prior to my buying the green Grendha wedges, I bought this pair of brown and gold flat sandals:
P499.75 lang ‘yan from Parisian. I bought them because at that time my feet were aching terribly and were craving for flats. But after buying them, I saw the green Grendha wedges and tinamaan uli ako ni Kupido. Even more when I wore them and felt comfy in them. See, that’s the thing with footwear that are quite expensive: matibay and comfy. And its being comfy is important to me, as it is rare to find wedges that can make me last standing for 6-7 hours of teaching. Plus, love na love ko pa ang design. So yeah, I have to have this pair. And boy I’m glad I did because these wedges are my current pang-everyday wedges.
And ladies and gentlemen, ‘yan ang alamat ng dress at sandals na suot ko noong anniversary namin. With that, I bid you goodbye. Mwah mwah!
PS: Parang walang kwenta ‘tong blog entry kong ‘to ‘no? Hehehe.
