01 December 2013. Yiiii, I can't believe it's December! We are so not ready for Christmas. And I'm not stressing myself out with preparing for Christmas, actually. While our due date would be sometime during the first 2 weeks of January, it is still possible after all to give birth before then. So I am just focusing on getting through this pregnancy this month.
This was taken outside Rocco's party, which Pao, Laz and I attended before we rushed off to watch "Frozen."
Dress is from Uniqlo, a baby shower gift from dear Nicka. Braided tan belt is from Zara, borrowed from my husband Pao. Bronze sandals from Fit Flop.
Manong Laz (though I shared it here already), on the other hand, is wearing a plaid buttondown from Peppermint (one of my favorite local kiddie brands), trousers from Gingersnaps, and leather sandals from Itapua (available in that espardille store in Podium).
32 weeks and 5 days pregnant in this picture.
27 November 2013. We had just gotten home from dinner in Grace Park with the sisses. Was running late so wasn't able to walk around Power Plant, drat. (Pao and Laz got to hit the mall though, but I had to head straight to the restaurant. They picked up my Thomas Sabo pendant - hurray, the store repaired it - actually replaced the entire thing - for free. Such excellent service!!!).
Anyhoo, finally got to wear the Mosaic x Maureen Disini dress I Instagrammed before (first spotted her dresses on Manila Fashion Observer's IG! Loved the dresses on her, made a beeline for it in Plant! My mother got it for me last October (thank you, Mama!!!), and as I suspected at the time, it is great to wear during pregnancy because the material is stretchy. I can easily wear this after I give birth too and, being black, it's very forgiving.
Huh, now I want to go back to Mosaic. They actually have a lot of these stretchy dresses and tops there, and it's not too expensive. Hurry and check out their store in Rockwell!
Dress from Mosaic x Maureen Disini. Necklace is a gift from Pao's batchie, Vince. Embellished jelly thong sandals from Kenneth Cole. Orient Star watch, with Larsson & Jennings strap.
Quick side story: the OrientStar is my Frankenstein watch - Pao "assembled" it for me because I liked, no make that fell hard, for the L&J Bernadotte strap, but not the clunky L&J quartz movement, ergo Pao got an OrientStar since it's an affordable but reliable automatic (although the Orient ended up costing more than the L&J timepiece, honestly). I find it prettier too than the actual L&J watch, and Pao didn't mind "butchering" the Orient. Pao had to replace the buckle on the strap as well, because the L&J buckle was in gold, but the Orient was trimmed in silver, and Pao, who knows me so well, knew I'd want it to match. Not only is the watch unique, but so well thought out by my husband; I was so touched when he surprised me with it a few months ago. I love it to bits. Thank you again, Buppy!
