peace, love, & lip gloss

hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

Gray hues.

Shopping for pretty clothes is a fun activity in itself, but getting them at dirt-cheap prices is even more fun! After Mai taught me last month how enjoyable (and affordable!) thrift-shopping can be, I swore I will try it again. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I went thrift-shopping with my good friend and officemate Marsha at this ukay place a few blocks away from their house (where I am also staying in at the moment). I loved it because it's a big store with racks and racks of clothes that you are bound to see something you'll like. Plus the salesladies are nice and willing to give more discounts ;) Here are the stuff I got:

Gray knit cardigan
I actually saw it a week ago but I didn't bring my wallet then so I wasn't able to get it. Good thing it was still there when I came back!

Gray and white striped dress
It's a simple dress but I can dress it up by using a belt and some nice shoes :)

White cotton cardigan
So pretty in its simplicity, I can use it as a cover-up for most of my dresses.

Denim jumper skirt
This was recommended to me by Marsha. So cute and pretty and flirty! Brand new, too, as it still had a tag on. I will bring it on my trip to Singapore :)

Lace cardigan
This is probably my favorite from the lot. It looks so sweet and romantic and lacy and pretty ♥

Can you believe that everything cost me only P540 (approx 12USD)? Pretty finds without breaking the bank, oh yeah, I can definitely get used to this :D

I've noticed something about myself. Lately, I have been drawn to more muted colors. Like last month, I totally went into this nude-phase when everything I bought is in the shades of browns. And then, these clothes are all in the shades of gray. I also edited my blog banner and layout (yet again!) in these colors. What do you think btw? Did you like it? Is this just a phase or is this a sign that I am maturing? I think this is just a phase; I love bright colors too much to let them go. And besides, whoever said taste in color is a sign of maturity? Sorry for rambling and for being philosophical about gray colors LOL.

This is a lame post, sorry. I hope you're having a fabulous week! Better than I have, as I've been sick for the last two days x_x
