Sometimes the basher--este critic--can be right
Woke up this morning with a fine mood, with Sunday morning rain is pouring automatically playing in my built-in stereo (bongga ng stereo ko noh, hehe). Then I got a message from a dear friend leading me to a blog ala "fashion police" which, napakaswerte nga naman, naisama ako sa criniticize ang outfit (sarap pa naman ng gising ko, tse). Para makapang asar lang (chos), here is the outfit that didn't quite please the taste of our anonymous fashion police:
From the post Elbow Patches
Now, to quote some of the lines from the blog post: (Sorry basag trip sa mga curious hehe, di ko nalang sasabihin yung url here. The blog aims to post mga fashion boo-boos of fellow bloggers, na hindi ko prinopromote. Just love baby, just love. Haha.)
"...you're a girl with curves why cover yourself all bunched up in that sweater? It made you look bigger than you are, covering too much of yourself just made the laid-back-look turn out LOUSY-LOOKING. Show your curves! This outfit of yours totally disappointed me and just showed me a confidence of 0."
"This isn't me saying that you don't know how to dress, nor write. This is me giving you a slap in the face reminding you to turn on the lights when you get dressed in the morning. The cardigan is beautiful, and i love the vans, but if you add it all together this way, it just DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.
Unang basa, sakit noh? Harsh lang ang pagkasabi, pero later on naisip ko, e kung totoo naman. :P Pero in my defense naman, lousy dresser talaga ako at aminado ako dito (kaya nga MK Olsen forever ako). Kasi fat kid talaga ako, I think sakit ko na ata sa utak yun. Feeling ko hanggang ngayon XL padin ako. If you're following my blog for quite some time, never niyo ako makikitaan na naka baby tee o bodycon. Psychological thing, I guess. But now I try to eat and live as healthy as I can na (body love yo!). But to wear fitted outfiteys, pinapractice ko palang yun. Di talaga kaya ng puso ko haha. (read here my weight struggle story as a kid)
As for my balot-na-balot look, other than commuter kasi ako, I also had lots of nakakalurks talagang bastusin moments, one of which I already blogged about here. Kaya as much as possible, pa conservative lang ako. Though, ayun nga, I agree with the "critic" na baka nga naman sobra naman ang balot for this outfitey. Kaya today, para masaya, sinuot ko uli ang pacontroversial cardigan and Keds ko differently, ng hindi na ako masasampal (nyahaha)
Sayang asa labada pa yun red stripes tee ko, nyahahaha, pero anyway, here's the same outfitey, but instead na pants...I wore shorts instead :)
Or better siguro if naka open nalang si cardi:
Tama bang nag blog pa ako? Tama bang nag blog pa siya? Ewan ko. Kakaiba na talaga ngayon ang blogging world. Nung 2005 happy sharing lang talaga itong online journal na ito. Right now madaming opportunities na ang nabibigay nito, pero maraming negative nading kalakip. Scary. Kaya tama din siguro ang ecobag na gamit ko (na by Sarah Tirona na for sale na nga pala sa Anagon Collection, P180 lang! Haha) - There is a special place in hell for fashion bloggers. :P
Hanggang dito na lamang po, at maraming salamat! ;)
