Downtown (1960s Inspired)

by - Saturday, November 02, 2013

"When you're alone and life is making you lonely. You can always go downtown."


I'm pretty sure most of us are familiar with this song especially now that it was used in the latest McDonalds TV commercial with that super adorable kid and her pretty grandmother, Marita Zobel. "Downtown" was recorded during 1964 by Petula Clark, which was very suitable for my "Outfit of the Day" post: this 1960s inspired dress from Shapes.


 printed dress Php399.00 (50% off) - Shapes
belt (part of the skirt that I used here) - Shopaholic
heeled sandals Php999.00 - SM Parisian
shades Php350.00 (50% off) - Dickies 
bracelet Php50.00 -  St. Francis Square Mall


I bought this dress from Shapes Megamall last Monday after watching movie with my officemates/friends. I just thought of doing some window shopping before I leave the mall, when I saw this from their store. I was immediately attracted with the color (it had me at Green and White) and the fact that it was on a 50% discount made me buy it at once.

Regarding styling it, I wanted the color of the dress to be the highlight so I only wore neutrals for this ensemble. Good thing I have this belt from Shopaholic and this pretty pair of heeled sandals from SM Parisian. And since I feel lazy to even put on light powder on my face, I just decided to wear these sunglasses from Dickies as added accessory aside from the beaded cuff. What do you think of the entire look then? I hope you liked the style that I shared today :)


How was the your week doing so far? This weekend have been busy for most of you since there was Halloween; then All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day. I've been seeing lots of news about Halloween celebrations and visits to cemeteries. Too bad I did not participated on any of those things. My family haven't been to the cemetery since we transferred to a different house. But I am hoping that we get to visit our relatives there before the year ends (hopefully to do some repainting/cleaning). I hope you all had a wonderful time if you were able to go visit your hometown for the said occasion. Always stay safe everyone and good day!
