FASHION: Green Apples

From last week's gloomy weather, the sun was out the entire week this time! I'm glad that the weather hasn't been extremely hot like last month. I'm welcoming the less warm weather that's soon to come but I am not ready to kiss Summer goodbye!

It's TGIF today but I've got a gazillion things to do! I need to get ready for this weekend's makeup jobs and I need to finish jewelry orders and some handpainted clothes today. So since my artistic skills are being put to full blast use, I decided to wear a comfortable maxi dress so I can achieve my deadlines and at the same time run a few errands for today.

Don't you just love the print on my dress? This dress was originally owned by my grandmother. (Yes, lola was and IS a fashionista) I found it a couple years ago in a box of old clothes that she tucked away. It was a long sleeved, turtleneck dress that I cut up and altered a bit. I can just imagine how she wore this at gatherings during the 60's / 70's. I'm not a fan of turtlenecks and the long sleeves simply won't do with our weather. Hence, the makeover on this piece. It's a beautiful vintage fabric  printed with green apples and dots. I certainly did not want to put this dress to waste! I also love how light and flowy the fabric is. Perfect to lounge around in when I want to take a quick  break in between work and errands.

I save a lot of old pieces owned by mom and grandmother. I don't know who originally owned the clutch I'm using, but it's another vintage piece I found in our attic. My jelly shoes are from the brand, Jessica from SM Department Store. I LOVE jelly shoes and I started quite a collection already. What I like about this pair is the skin tone color which makes me look longer even if they're flats.

I LOVE my headchain! I made this myself and I think it's the perfect compliment to my outfit. My cocktail ring is also one of my handmade creations under my brand, OLEIC.

I'm still loving my pink ombre hair done by Angelo Falconi III. It's been 3 weeks since he colored my hair and I love dressing up to compliment the color. It's also perfect for the "Hippie Vibe" of my look for today. Again I was feeling lazy to fix my hair today so I kept it in a bun while I painted at home and let it down when I had to go out and run a few errands. I love how it still looks good!
