I love Manila


I know I never really post any text here on my streetstyle blog. But just as with my other pages, just needed to let off some steam.

Time and time again, I have been this close to abandoning this blog – what with the time and effort my other pursuits, not to mention my day job, require of me. But, as with children: no matter how misfit, one cannot never bring oneself to abandon them.


My frustration is compounded by the fact that this week I actually did bring my DSLR with me in the hopes of snapping some decent streetstyle pics. I saw two really stylish women – one with a baby blue shirt and high-waisted wide-legged trousers and another with blonde hair and a loungey gray shift, but both times I was either too shy or lazy (or, as is usually the case, I was in a rush to work) to approach them to ask to take their pics.


This time though, even if I was likewise running to work, I brought out my iPhone and snapped these pics. I love how the cobalt and electric blues of her skirt and sandals match. I love her polka dots. And, of course, I love her purse! Hopefully this will inspire me to set aside time to hunt for better pics because I have never really given up on the fact that you don’t have to go abroad to draw inspiration. You only have to look.

(It is easier to find stylish women. For men, the devil is in the details. Or should I say accessories?)
