Baclaran Day

Posted: March 29, 2012 in Excessories, when broke

Found myself in the middle of Baclaran one Friday with my mom and our friend Boyet. Since I’m  there na rin so I decided to take a look around and check out the merchandise. Sadly, there’s not much fashion finds in the area so if you wanna go bargain hunting, Divi is still king. Of course, ayaw ko umuwi ng luhaan so I saw to it that I take a few stuff home with me. Nandun na rin ako, so might as well…

Some finds from Baclaran:

Orange/Blue/Gold Cuff P100

I was wearing a 4-inch wedge that time so I needed emergency shoes.

Polka Dot Loafer P100 (note: wear at your own risk, sakit sa sole at nag-RIP na sya a of this writing)

Plastic Owl Cuff  P80

Rings P50 each, hassle can’t find the diamond.

These earrings are my favorite, originally priced at 3 for 100 but was able to haggle for P25 each!

I was also able to buy denim shorts for P100 from the street bangketa but when i tried it at home masikip ang left leg. Awaaard!

TOTAL SPENT: P730

Note: Baclaran is not the place for bargain clothes, unless size 23 ang waistline mo ans size XXS ka, wala ka talaga makikita dun na kasya. Nakaka insecure mamili ng clothes dun kasi feeling mo plus size ka na. I think clothes in Baclaran were made for women with child-like bodies so best mag Divi na lang tayo.

Animal prints are all over.  Elitist snobs would say it’s baduy since it’s gone mainstream but not for me. I love, love animal prints  and I’m so happy that they can be found just about anywhere. Besides, they were never exclusive, so excuse me , di sila baduy. It’s how you wear them that will make or break these kind of prints.

I used to say that  I love leopard prints but when I did my inventory, I noticed that not all my prints are the same. Then I remembered that there’s another cat print that’s as popular as the leopard – Cheetah. So before we compliment some random girl on her super cute animal print anything, best we review the difference. Simple lang.

It’s all in the spots. Cheetahs have simple black spots, while leopards have a more complex pattern.

Can you spot the difference now?

         

Sharing with you some of my cheetah and leopard hunts:

Clockwise : Cheetah Pendant (CMG), A hamper full of cats (scarves, tops, cardigan),  Bag (CMG),  Top (F21)

F21 Summer Tank Top, Mom’s paper bag from Divi, Cheetah Print Frames

So keep your eyes open for these animal prints para mas masaya ang closet nyo. Believe me, they’re EVERYWHERE.

HAPPY SPOTTING!

Just when I thought na hopeless case na ang Robinsons Department store when it comes to finds, found these fab accessories in one corner by the escalator. The brand is called Vanity Accessories – winner ang selections nya plus everything is less than P400!

Looky here!

So happy to find this necklace. I just pinned a similar design on my Pinterest board. The one I found online costs around $150 from the House of Harlow, sa Robinsons it’s just Php 200 plus! Super find talaga!

This is my favorite piece. Feeling ko gold medalist ako when I’m wearing this.

This is gorgeous, upgrades your pambahay top. Wear this and you can face the world. Chos!

Found the same ring from Etsy at $3.50. Bought this ring at P120. Happiness!!! Meow!
