Summer Lace on a Rainy Day (fashion + makeup)

It may not have been a great idea to wear a lace number on a rainy monday morning but needless to say, I planned my outfit unaware of the weather. I didn't think it would rain so hard. But it did... oh well.

Its been a while when i bought this yellow lace dress from BC Manila at one of Rockwell's Urban Bazaar. I was asked by Jheng where I got some of my dresses and I told her that bazaars are really great for finding treasures (mineral makeup for example was a result of a bazaar expedition with my mom). I think got this dress for about less than a thousand, I can't remember. I'm just happy that it still fits me even if I gained about 10 lbs. over the past few months.

I love love this dress and now even with this crazy weather, I don't mind wearing that I find myself pretty in. :) Besides, I find that this dress is just appropriate for dinner with my business partners at work. Not too casual but certainly respectable...

But in my dreams, this is the dress that I would wear if I am a member of Manila Polo Club, with white-wide brim hat, white Chanel sunglasses and mojitos as I watch a Polo match.... but dreams, it shall remain.... Le sigh.

OOTD (Outfit of the day):
BC Manila dress (less than 1k, i think)
People are people sandals (P999.00)
HDY Bag (2 for 899)

I tried to keep it subdued on the eyes. But couldn't resist on using Ellana's new eyeshadow in Twinkle. :) It's this bright shimmery yellow that goes well with my dress. :)

MUFE Green 01 Face Primer
Lancome Maquiliquide in 02 (used Ellana Flat Top Blush)
MUFE Camouflage Palette (used Ellana Flat Top Brush)
Ellana Intensive Foundation in Frenchvanilla Latte

This is a relatively simple look to do. No fuss whatsoever, pat here or there and you're done. :)
