i always go back to you

i always go back to this dress. it’s what i call my fail-safe dress. it has mixed patterns and prints. it’s belted on the waist. it’s very comfortable. it’s breezy. it’s blue. and yes, it’s very forgiving. why? because it’s a tent dress and it can fit me when i’ve gained weight or lost weight. and this time, i’ve gained some and my mixed print dress is always there to catch me when i’m in an outfit dilemma.
i’ve mentioned this on one of my very few posts when i started my new job — a day job. i’ve had this heightened appetite and have been eating non-stop for weeks now. other than a new pair of shoes, food cheers me up. vanilla ice cream cheers me up the most. i would love to have a new pair everytime i get stressed or restless or bored but it’s an expensive habit. whereas, food is there..haha! so yeah, i know i have to control this appetite or else my clothes won’t fit me anymore (which will be such a waste of money) but for now, i’m going to enjoy actual lunch at 12 noon, afternoon snacks of turon (banana and nangka fritter wrapped in chinese wrapper, coated with brown sugar then deep fried to perfection) and ice candy, little munchy breaks of yogurt or crackers, dinner at home at 7PM and dessert with dark chocolate or ice cream.Β

    the dress is pretty Gizelle, especially the prints…We have the same habit too…

    If I feel bloated and ugly…I usually go to the tent dress or those oversize tops….I can alway get away of being so full from eating hahahah….

    You have an amazing pose…no need to copy Armand's but if you are doing a great photo shoot…Armand has the best poses ever….

    I seriously miss the turon in Cebu….especially in USJ-R…oh my…the turon here is not good…Thai's does not have any sweet tooth at all…

    Kisses love

    P.S. I am holding a pizza giveaway in my blog for Cebu residents only. You might check it out.

    i agree, you need not worry about your figure as you are the most adorable thing. As for Armand, i've got to meet this guy in this lifetime. Who could ever pull off a fierce pose like that since Bryanboy!
