Ok, just to recap a little...this Easter weekend was pretty delightful to say the least. If there's one thing I love more than anything it's spending quality moments with people I love, catching up on old times with the familia, reminiscing on stories when we were scruffy and odd little kids, and scarfing down on loads of Filipino food and ever so sweet Port wine. Can't help but feel a bit sappy these past couple of days.

Also, spent a lovely Friday with my boyfriend Lucas just strolling through SoHo, NYC and addictively ogling the many street vendors that were sprawled throughout Broadway and Prince Streets. If I could get my hands on leather triple roped bracelets in every hue, ornate rock star rings, and a myriad of pendant and charmed necklaces, I'd scoop them up in a HEART BEAT. We concluded our day with a lovely dinner and champagne cocktails at Barmarché. Their grilled shrimp salad and steak frites were out of this world scrumptious.

Took some streetstyle shots of some awesomely stylish people as well...stay tuned for those upcoming posts!


ps: If you guys find yourself debating on those JC clogs...here's a little tip from me, BUY THEM if you still can. They're ridiculously comfortable, quirky, and you'll find yourself walking the entire day not feeling an ounce of pain.

Yes. Yes. Yes. This is one of the very few instances where I have seen clogs worn so they don't look awkward. So fresh lady, love it! ♥

I'm finally becoming comfortable with clogs being back in fashion, and yours looks great! I'm also full of envy over the PS1 bag - it is my all time favourite bag, but as I am a poor student, it's not a realistic purchase at the moment.
