If you’ve been reading my blog, chances are, you’d be able to guess what this wardrobe diary entry is. If you’re thinking that this is about what I wore when I went clubbing, then BOO, you’ve been absent for a long time!!! Or is it you’re first time here?
But those who have been in my loop would surely know that this is about my outfit/OOTD during Motherhood’s surprise 60th birthday celebration. Since the theme was masquerade and most of the guests were, well, uhhh…”vintage”, it was but fitting that the guests (and host) wear something glamorous and Old Hollywood-ish. And since one of my current favorite TV series is Downton Abbey, I chose outfits from the roaring twenties! Here’s what I wore on Motherhood’s Masquerade Theme Surprise 60th Birthday Party Celebration:
Lemme hear a roar if wagi ang outfit natin! Kung hindi, tumahimik na lang kayo. Hihihi! Anyway, I actually got a lot of compliments for my dress. Another guest whose outfit I loved was Tita Romilyn’s. Look:
Davah?!? Complete with fishnet stockings pa ‘yan! The other guests actually commented that our dresses were similar—I guess in the sense that they’re both fab—and because of that Tita Rom and I had a “contest”…
Tita Rom: Oo nga parang pareho tayo ng outfit na makislap-kislap. Pero mura lang ‘ting akin!
I: Ay Tita, mura rin itong akin!
Tita Rom: Hoy, sa tiangge ko lang ito nabili…P750 lang ito!
I: Wala ka Tita, ukay lang itong akin—P150 lang ito!
Tita Rom: Ay panalo ka nga!
Yes, you heard me right ladies and bekis (dahil walang pakialam ang gentlemen for sure), I got this dress for a song! I got this when I was buying ship tickets at Western Union for our helpers. Incidentally, that Western Union was just beside an ukay-ukay. While I was waiting for our helpers’ complete names and birthdays via text to complete the transaction, I visited the ukay-ukay shop nearby to pass time. When I saw the dress, I knew I had to have it. I knew it had “potential”. Apparently, most people thought it was too flamboyant and even funny. But I knew in my heart that I’ll be able to wear it. And a few months after, I did.
Anyway, here’s the rest of the details of my outfit:
- gray/silver lace and beaded dress: ukay
- maroon pumps: Zara
- brown woven bag: The Sak
- feather headband: SM Dept. Store
You may have noticed in my previous related posts that my hairdo varies. Kuh-rect! That’s because I really suck at hairstyling, and I can’t decide how I want my hair. I was going for the flapper girl look talaga, but because of my limitations I was not able to achieve it.

Here are more photos of me (and my ever-changing hairdo) during Motherhood’s party:
And then finally, walang-wala na ni konting trace ng flapper girl:
But allow me to say that despite this failed flapper girl getup, I’m so happy that I pulled off this party! So I still deserve a ROAR!
Tell me what you think!
