GRAY IN THE DARK


For the record, bodycon dresses are my favorite thing right now. I like how easy-going I get when I wear them. I don't even get what this bodycon dress says ("All cats are gray in the dark") but I still grabbed it because it has a cat print on it and you know how insane I am about cats. And this outfit could've been nicer with a baseball cap on. Been meaning to have one for the cheapest price but I can't find it here in Cebu (or maybe I just suck at canvassing haha). Baseball caps look pretty much the same anyway regardless of their brand or price and I think I won't even wear them every single day so why spend a huge amount of money for the sake of brand? Wise spending? I don't know. Haha.

I wore sunglasses because it was pretty sunny during the morning and then again, this Philippine weather went bipolar and it began raining during the afternoon. Good thing it stopped for a while, giving us time to have this shoot. As you may have noticed in the background, the sky is very pale.



I really am a forgetful person that I tend forget stuff that I must bring when I go out for a walk, one of which are my sunglasses and it really pisses me off. There was one time on a Friday night when I was reminding myself not to forget my sunglasses for tomorrow's day out but then Saturday came and I already left the house when suddenly... "Fudge! I forgot my sunglasses again!". And it was a pretty sunny Cebu that time and all I could think about was how stupidly forgetful I am. And now, finally I was able to bring my sunglasses but it wasn't even a sunny day for goodness sake!

Why am I even complaining as if this is a very huge dilemma? Haha. But well, I know small things like these can really drive us nuts at some point.



Yay I smiled! I know you don't see me smiling on most of my outfit posts so hooray for this. I tried.



And yay (again!) for my new bag! I'm so obsessed with it right now. I think it's my dream bag. I like the way it looks. The texture is not too shiny but not dull as well. It's not too big, nor too small. And it's a backpack! How convenient is that? You should get yours as well if you feel interested! Details will be at the end of this post, as usual. :)


What do you think about the meaning of "All cats are gray in the dark"? Ram and I were arguing about it and all I could say was, "Nah, as long as it has a cat print on it, I don't care anymore." Haha. How about you? You can always leave your comments down below!

  19. I can totally sympathsize with you about forgetting things, especially sunglasses. I always forget them too and only realize once I step outside of my apartment, which, by then is usually too late! :P Love the dress, I guess the quote means that in the dark everything looks to be in shades of gray anyway. And I agree that maxis are the best, although they definitely hug the body, so I will be working out before I put mine on!
