What's up, pumpkins? How's your weekend? It's a lovely Sunday and I got time to visit Cups this afternoon with my bestie, Dintha. It's a tiny cafe that I knew from Claradevi. I saw her Twitpic and I suddenly fell in love. Holy smoke! This place is too cute to be true! Not to mention, it feels so cozy and homey so we were goofing around and taking pictures like it's our private place. Hahaha. Yes, nobody was around but us and the server. It was great because I really need quietude lately. I feel like I want to be alone and not surrounded by people I used to be with. But I haven't met Dintha for a while and it's quite nice to have quality time with her again today.
Unfortunately, I suck at food porn because the moment I saw Blueberry Pancake and Fried Mushroom that we ordered, I was suddenly razzle dazzle and the eating-story was ended in ten minutes. I didn't even remember to take any pictures! But I got bunch of pics about this place that you might like. It won't change my I'm-about-to apologize for putting lots of pictures again, though. But I can't help it! It's not fair for me if I'm the only one who get excited =D

  • houndstooth-collared jacket: thrift store
  • off-white puffy chiffon shirt: thrift store
  • rust suede leather shorts: vintage
  • camel beret: ebay
  • brown leather belt: vintage
  • tribal paisley scarf: Forever 21
  • lace-up peep toe wedges: Miint
  • trapeze brown slingbag: Arena Experience

First of all, I have to warn you that this post contains tons of images. Number two... look ma! No black! Haha. Okay. I'm lying. There's a few black on some parts of the scarf. Well, only a few... =P
Oh.. I love these shorts! They are prominent part of this outfit and actually look more orange-ish in real life. That's why I wanted to keep it striking so I made them playing with neutral shades combo. What I love about the shirt are the fatty sleeves! They're so... puffy! Yaaaaaaay. Also, I'm back with my signature beret hat! =D
Anyway, have you joined my giveaway? If you haven't, join it, pronto, pleaseee! I read every suggestion and I try to make this blog looks better. I really appreciate what you have suggested to me and implement which suits me, my personality, and my blog. Thank you =]

Last, I want to share you some pics that I took at Camera Obscura concert. The show was awesome! I struggled on the front row to take decent pictures. Well, I'm no goody goody photographer but that was the best I could do with 4 inches wedges and between the beetle and the block of taking pictures or singing along. Hahaha. But I didn't retouch these pictures at all except the lighting on one pic of Gavin because it was too dark. The rest, fresh from the camera. Enjoy =D

  • black wool long coat: vintage
  • grey stripes waistcoat: thrift store
  • charcoal sequin dress (worn as top): H&M
  • pleat origami skirt: Topshop
  • holey fringe shawl: mom's closet
  • black studded and sequined heels: Topshop
  • vintage slingbag: Yves Saint Laurent

What I wore to work yesterday. I stole my late-lunch time to do these shots super fast so I was doing it while smoking =P
It was kinda cold so I decided to play with layers, put my coat on, and even wrap a shawl around my neck. I was like wearing the 'real' work-outfit with the skirt, waistcoat, and the bun, huh? But so far I can only think of, it's the only way I could wear sequins at work without looking too much. And believe me or not, I accidentally wore the waistcoat one buttoned up so it looks asymmetric. Hahaha. Duh.
Anyway, can't wait for Camera Obscura tonight. I'm so excited! I'll probably share some pics on the next post. I'm currently planning on giveaway, too! Just stay tuned =D

  • black mesh cardigan: thrift store
  • black simple dress: Bloop Relaxing
  • black paisley skirt: Miss Selfridge
  • purple beanie: Forever 21
  • black tie (worn as asymmetric bow belt): somewhere in closet
  • black tights: random store
  • lace peep-toe wedges: Miint
  • shiny slouchy bag: Flashy

The first four pictures were taken when I played with sun flares after raining. The way the light hit half-side of me was totally cheerful, don't you think? It's dominant-black outfit but it looked so brown-ish, yeah? I wore the skirt on my upper waist so the dress could peep out and created layering illusion. And I know that I'm over-wearing this bag and these shoes. Duh.
Oh, for those who asked about the software I used for the photos on my previous post, I use Nik Color Effect 3.0. It's a plug-in software for Adobe Photoshop and it's from Nikon. I used it to edit these pictures, too. See the purple shade on the wall? =D
Anyway, I can't wait to see Camera Obscura on March 21st! Wohoooooooooooooooo..
