Yesterday was filled with girl-y flurry (and mishaps) that I simply have got to be thankful to Sophie for being such a great girl to hang out with and Angel who came to the rescue of a damsel in a dress distress. If it weren’t for these two lovely ladies, I wouldn’t have dared to let my hair get wet during Pantene Pro V’s event held at the Hotel Intercon in Makati City. Okay. So, I didn’t really get wet (though someone did fall into the pool as was expected), I was just having fun with the words. Hehe. BUT yes, I was close to packing up my stuff, head home and sulk. Early onset of PMSing, I’m afraid.
This dress became a hit with friends last night. Awesome, right? Well, before you go muttering, “it’s just a skirt which she wore as a dress”, like the last time I heard someone say even when twas indeed a dress I wore a while back, listen to this. This time around, it is a skirt that I wore as a dress simply because it’s tailored in such a way that it can be worn in a number of different ways. Brilliant, eh? So mutter away. Heh.
It’s a vintage silk sari called Ophelia. And it’s worth all the dollars I paid for it. All 25 of it. LOL. If converted, it’s worth just over a thousand pesos. Too bad she stopped selling them. I hope she starts making them gorgeous saris again.
