The Manila Hotel is the oldest premiere hotel in the Philippines, built in 1909. The Champagne Room is my most favorite place there because it's forever summery. The yellow and green colors, floral patterns, pinkish carpet, marble floors, black arched windows and antiques here and there are so beautiful and inspiring. Very inspiring so I wore this outfit. See the resemblance?

Floral lace top as inner, lace and leather cage dress over, mom's vintage leopard print vest, mom's intricate gold necklace with colored precious stones, vintage oval wooden bag, Zara shoes

LaMimi said...

Hey darling!
You know what's interesting? It's how you put things that are not suppose to work together but they somehow miraculously do! hehe
You look awesome;)

agus said...

Noelle, you are very chic and so womanly! I love your outfit, especially the leopard print vest - it is great, and the hotel - amazing!

izzy said...

I love how offbeat-decadent your necklace is. Your outfit looks like afternoon tea with a hint of crazy, which is always a good thing.

When were you last in Quiapo? Would you know if the store in Quiapo that sells Ray-ban still has some in stock? (I think the one I'm referring to is on Paterno.) I'm planning a visit soon but I'd like to make sure I'd be able to buy something if I went there.

Cheryl said...
