I guess without me realizing it, I grew up with women who had a knack for awesome classic pieces. My mom, grandmother and even my yaya were my first favorite fashionistas. Mommy kinda dresses more casually now. She said it comes with age when you resort to wearing rotational attire. But when she was younger, I adored her blouses of bold prints, elegant dresses and pants or skirts with unique cuts (like her culottes haha) to name a few. My lola's (grandma's) closet on the other hand is full of classy blouses, and unique blazers. It's especially fun to visit now, that the granny and oversized looks are so in. Just like this one from Autilia on lookbook.nu
Then there's also my yaya...whom I LOVE for...well, a lot of things. But in relation to this entry, introducing me to the ukay-ukay/thrifting world. She, along with my mom, are my favorite thrifting buddies!
Anyway, as I was saying, I do love vintag. When there are those days that you can't decide what to wear, my default solution is always vintage. Even if it's not too trendy, you know it'll be eye-catching :)
I wore this outfit to school. And I suppose the vintage item here is pretty obvious. I borrowed this butter plaid oversized blazer from my grandma's closet. When I say oversized, I mean long, big and padded haha. Wearing that blazer took some balancing on my part. At some point, it made me look short and took away any hope for a flattering shape. Finally, I found something that worked :)
I was happy to wear this tanktop. It's been in my closet for ages, but hasn't been out of it that often. Finally, I got to use it again.
As I was going through my grandmother's clothes, I couldn't help but miss her. When she was around, I wasn't into fashion blogging just yet. Never thought I'd share the same fashion interests as her. She always used to love seeing me in nice clothes and always liked knowing what new fashion finds I found. Yes, she was a very hip lola. I hope she could see this somehow in heaven and know that I'm thankful for having her, that I miss her and that I most especially, love her! Keep watching over us, Nanan :)
