She's a Sea Shell

The sea shells are my color inspiration for this outfit.
It simply reflects my fun love for the beach.

Pearly white dress with beige pleats and sequins, thrifted lace top as inner, mom's vintage beaded clutch
and vintage glass-gold necklace, some brown ankle boots, shell photo from google

An apt inspiration. You look fantastic in all these light white and beige tones. I love hopia too! Mongo is just as good as ube. And I remember my mum having a necklace similar to the one I bought actually. Very Pinay, I agree ;)

Anyway, I've tagged you! Pass it on if you'd like.

Whoa you never fail to impress me Noelle! I can never say it enough, but your style is so creatively representative of Pinoy fashion. The dress exudes homemade charm, paired with the boots, I think this might be my favorite of yours.

And thank you for your comments, you are incredibly sweet. Where in Quiapo did you buy straw hats? I've been dying to come back there to visit this optical shop that sells deadstock (read: brand new) vintage Ray-Bans.

Shelly's Style Shop said...

xoxo, Shelly

Love your boots and the pearly white dress. Goes well with the theme of your post. That chain necklace reminds of the same one that I gave to my Mom a few years ago. Great style and thank you for stopping by at my blog.:)

The shoes are AMAZING! So is the bag!

stilettostetico said...

AND the soft/caressing "Sea Shell-esque" colors' palette of your silhouette is truly mesmerizing, and the ankle boots instil a subtle "Retro GLAMorous" twist . . .
ps: The way you hide your face sounds here as such a mischievous mystery !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine
