Fashionesque and Vintage Silk

Sasha 03.29.08

Last Saturday, I decided to check out the Fashionesque Event at F*ART. Twas a fashion exhibit — Happy Andrada creations — and lomography exhibit. Teh boyfriend and I plus a friend trekked (yes, trekked cuz we’re a bunch of southerners!) up north to the shop located in Kamuning, Quezon City. We got a bit lost but I blame the weird street signs. Gah.

Oh, yes. As you can see, I did a bit of shopping whilst there (you’ll soon find out what’s in the bag, hehe). And I decided to air out my Vintage Silk, something I purchased online over at Etsy. It’s a piece which you can wear in a number of ways. I wore it as a skirt that day. It’s my way of easing away my maxi dress frustration. A pretty good alternative, me thinks.

Skirt: Kariza Vintage

  1. I envy your height! If I wear mine as a skirt, I’d need to wear at least a 3-inch heel when I want to wear just slippers or sandals. Hehe.

  2. nice job! wich i could wear long skirts too!

    my cuz is from alabang too and she gets lost a lot here in q.c. even if she broguth her car! hehe

  3. The comments above echo my thoughts. I don’t think I’ll be able to pull that off since I am a little bit on the short side! Looks very good on you though.

  4. Kaye: I’m only 5’3″ LOL. Not too much height to boast. I had to hike up the skirt a bit so it would get dragged on the pavement. It does look great as a skirt, huh? I wore it with flat t-strap sandals! :)

    Carmela: I don’t spend too much time in the north but I feel I should cuz I think I’m missing out on great finds! I hope I’d find time to go out and explore more! :)

    Mau: Thanks! I reckon it’ll be a bit hard to find a suitable length for your height but it’ll be worth a try. Go be adventurous! :)

  5. I totally love your skirt. And are you really 5’3″? My height is the same, but I don’t look as tall as that. Poor me.

  6. Is this the same sari skirt you wore as a dress? It looks nice… but i think if i have one, i should stick to wearing it as a dress… I am just 5″1… poor me… my friends kid me and told me I did not even reach 5″… but the chart says I am 5″1

  7. nice skirt you got sha! i like the color combination you had there ;)

  8. I think I saw skirts like that at the Suan Lum Night Bazaar in Thailand. They have pretty good pieces there, too.

  9. you look so gorgeous here sasha! the long skirt made a big statement and it blended so well with your yellow top :)

  10. i wonder what your feet be wearing during that shoot?
