coming here in australia kinda put a pressure on my fashionista register. before i went here, mike who’s from here that’s on a business trip in manila said that everyone here is fashioin conscious. me, the proverbial clothes-r-us pull out my resources… clothes in the closet that i won’t wear on a regular day, my new metrobank visa card (van heusen and memo got a real swipping with this one), my killer shoes, tons of hair products… i won’t be caught dead being the one who’s not blending. now, 6 weeks later, i realized that it was just hyped. indeed they are more fashion savy than the people in rural princeton new jersey-3 piece suits everywhere!, but they are no tokyo japan (still i don’t get their fashion sense) nor paris france.
i over stuffed my luggage with clothes that’s good for a month without repeats, a fashion calendar itemizing what pair to wear on a certain day, 4 different colognes to match my clothes… all for nothing!
