Street but Sweet

Fashion editors, unite!

I originally intended to have a dress made for this beach wedding I'm attending, but T&C's Rorie convinced me to just borrow a dress. "I have one--do you wear polka dots?" she asked. "Yes--pero hindi ako magkakasya sa damit mo! Mas mukha pa akong nanay sa 'yo!" I told her.

In any case, I began to see the merits of borrowing versus having something made, and asked the fashion eds to come to my rescue. As a result, I have bags and bags of stuff to choose from.

From MC's Pam:
- A beautiful one-shouldered number with a flowy skirt that looks like water. Problem is it's just way too long, even when I wear five-inch heels. "Just walk like this!" said Pam, swishing an imaginary skirt as she pretended to walk by the beach.
- A Grecian-style jersey dress that she said I could cut--it's got a hole (I hesitate to say keyhole because it's MUCH bigger than a mere keyhole) in front and it's backless, so it's quite sexy.
- A one-shouldered olive green dress with a rope belt. I have yet to try it on.
- A short, smocked, orange number.

From Seventeen's Cindy:
- The front-runner, a long cotton dress with a gorgeous brown and purple print. Pam calls it very boho, I think it's boho-slash-edgy (given that there's a little skull embroidered on it!).
I could wear it with gray wedges, then just change into flipflops on the beach.
- A white dress with gray polka dots and a striped gray sash.
- A super sexy pink and purple striped number that looks awesome, but which I would regret wearing after having something to eat.
P.S. I'm ecstatic that I could fit into Cindy's stuff!

From T&C's Rorie:
- That orange polka-dot dress. Really pretty, although I doubt that it would fit me.:(
- A black number that I don't think I could pull off.
- A lovely black, cream, and silver dress that I really wanna wear, just because it's Vivienne Tam!
- A pink dress that I have to try on first.

Tata also brought a cream-colored dress with all these colorful flowers (pretty, but not very flattering on me), and I found two other dresses on my desk, I'm guessing from Pam as well. Cosmo's Kat might bring stuff, too. Will have to do a fashion montage in my room tonight to finally figure out what to wear!

    Ano ka ba! Your dress sounds perfect! The perfect dress would have been the one I would have had my friend make. Alas, there is not enough time any more. Sigh. At magbabayad pa tayo for summer league!
