We’re finally done with thesis!
*fireworks here, fireworks there*
So me and my Partner in Cram[ming] decided to celebrate by going on an adventure (which never happened, because we ended up in Glorietta despite the agreement on going to “somewhere we’ve never been”). Well anyhow, our first stop was the EGG (exciting gifts + goodies) outlet in Makati ‘cos I badly needed a new wristlet and by my tremendous luck, they were on sale. I got a pretty floral pouch with a blue synthetic leather back (see below) to replace my old, tattered one for Php 125 instead of 180. And since this day was a glorious commemoration of finishing our thesis, we got ourselves some dainty arm candy that cost Php 100-150 each.
Next stop was Bershka, where Mikie and I decided to try on a few outfits and of course, take some mandatory dressing room mirror selfies. They had the prettiest skirts and dresses, but even the XS size was a tad too big for me, to my utter frustration and disappointment. Why my body is frozen in its pre-pubescent glory, I’d rather not know. Below are the two outfits I tried – a red dress with tiny, anchor-print patterns (est. Php 1275) and a floral one that’s perfect for my practicum next sem, but is unfortunately too expensive (est. Php 2100) and too loose for my liking. The third photo was my outfit for the day, composed of a cardigan I got from G.U. Japan, black thrift store camisole, shorts from Lee, and platform shoes from Aeropostale.
Mikie tried on a sweater and a denim skater skirt that she really liked, but cost around Php 1500 (you can get a similar one from Cotton On at half the price). Also, here’s a closer look of what I’d like to call my Dauntless-Erudite getup (because I still haven’t gotten over Divergent).
Thanks to Bershka for letting the partners in cram(ming) try on clothes without actually buying anything! #shameless But if things go well and according to plan, we might start going regularly on a shopping spree soon *wink wink*
