Looks expensive

You know how I wish I can wear all the designer stuffs most of the first world bloggers wear but then probably  I wouldn't live up to 30 years old coz I'll  die of starvation.  My rule of thumb is: if you can afford it, why not? If you can't, then don't push it. There's always the thrift shop to satisfy one's designer needs. Honestly since I've started blogging, i've seldom purchased clothes from department stores save for some pair of shoes.

Wearing:

Shirt - Lanvin (thrifted) 
Pastel blue shorts - Ralph Lauren (thrifted)
Brown leather belt - Anna Sui (thrifted)
Clog-like shoes - Boardwalk
Bag - Vintage Chanel
Sunglasses - Mongkok market

Hugs and kisses to the photographer, Marlon Capuyan. :)

Yeah, I agree with you. If you can afford it, then go ahead! If not, then don't. I have to say though - your outfit it amazing for something that's not new/designer. Great Job. I need to go opshopping too... I want your shorts. And your shoes.

everything is perfect...since you are very good in thrifting...I salute you for that...I never had luck in those kind of area...maybe my mom was a bit protective of me when I was in Cebu but I must say, I need to start looking for other options...

I love everything in this look especially the bag and your shirt...

Love that you thrifted all of these designer pieces! You look so chic. I absolutely love that chain bracelet on your wrist (where is it from?) and your accessories in general. The belt really does wonders in tying in the shirt with the shorts!

Have a lovely weekend!
