That's why I always make it a point to dress my best. I always pick up something comfy and decent more than what's fashionable. But it's always a win-win situation if you achieved both. Using some of my basics (and most often used pieces) I was able to have this look.
|Leopard top, printed skirt, stiletto necklace, turkish bracelet and gold watch (hand me downs)|
Belt (SM Dept. Store)
|Shoes (Chelsea, SM Dept.)|
All of these pieces I own since time immemorial. Haha!:)) I think I was able to pull off a decent but nice outfit. After attending mass together, my mother, sister and I went to SM Fairview to shop.:)
I am planning to use my 1,500 worth of CHEMISTRY GCs I got from ACLE (See here: http://carmi-desu.blogspot.com/2011/08/novice-inspiration.html). The first time I tried to spend my GCs was in SM Annex but for some reason, they weren't accepted so, I went to SM Fairview next.
When we got there, the lady said that they accept GCs but since their system is down, they have to call first to ask. I was worried because we might not be able to use the GCs again. Good thing, they accepted and processed manually.
I waited for almost a year before using my GCs because having a tight budget, I see to it that I'll buy what I really need. Even if it took me so long to use my GCs, it wasn't my first time in Chemistry. I always pass by the shop to check all items and choose what I really like.
What I like about Chemistry stores is that they have a bright lighting unlike other stores with fluorescent lighting, you're not sure if the color of the item really looks good on you or the lighting is just nice.
|The boys and the girls side|
|Who doesn't love a sale?:)|
|Accessories! (That's my sister taking the photo and my mom. Haha!)|
|More accessories in the counter.|
Another thing I love about the store is that it has unique dressing rooms! They're very safe and private plus it's air-conditioned! Mirrors are also sky-high (exagge! Haha!).
Some of my choices:
|Demure dress with my sis' pink floral top|
|Seems like from a 50's movie|
|Checkered vest and denim semi-corporate skirt|
|Pink Floral top for my Sis, Denim skirt and Floral blazer for me!|
Chemistry is not only a his and her brand which often comes out very "matchy". In Chemistry, each piece has a connective thread with the other pieces, enough for mature couples (even singles) to express their style and inspiration. This makes them unique and a stand out from other brands. The prices are moderately affordable too. I'll surely come back for that denim vest I saw earlier. Haha!
Thank you Chemistry!
Love, Carmi ♥
