It was the Saturday before Christmas, when Paolo and I were invited to attend Pong and Ana's wedding at Lipa, Batangas. It was a wedding quite different from those we have attended -- a reception held at Blue Roze farm (which reminded me a lot of La Mesa Eco Park), a reception with a food parade and Chinese-served style.
I did not intend to wear this outfit for the wedding, but because Paolo insisted that I should sleep over his place the night before I have no choice but to work on the clothes that I have on his place. Luckily, I have found these cool-colored dresses in Paolo's house that was perfect for a garden wedding reception. If you have noticed, I have worn both of these piece (the blue top on this post and the mustard dress used as a skirt on this post) already but with a simple mix and match, the outfit looks a little new!
Blue Dress used as top: Thrifted from Nicole Santos' booth last Super Sale Bazaar
Mustard Dress used as Skirt: Thrifted from Aisa Ipac's booth last Bazaar for All Season
There's nothing wrong to repeat outfits as long as you style it differently. That's the reason why I'm a huge fan of outfits that have a number of uses (like a dress that can be used as a skirt and vice versa) so I can always re-wear them.
A smiling photo. I have always posted my outfit shots with a closed-mouth smile (which I have been terming as Papaya Smile, hihi) but because its already 2013, I decided to make smiling one of my new year's resolution. I still have to gain a little more confidence in doing this for I still feel ugly everytime I show off my teeth. Do you agree?

I'm bringing sexy back!
And just 11 months from now, I'll have another ring as I change my marital status.
There goes my first outfit post for 2013!! I really hope this post is a first step in making better outfit posts and write ups. I would really appreciate your thoughts on this.
