Mardigras Miss Out

(HAT: Icing, $1.99/ TOP: boyfriend shirt; thrifted/ BELT: mesh; from Mita Bo/ LEGGINGS: Philippines/ SHOES: peeptoes, Limelight; from Paulo/ PURSE: Rachel Roy/ ACCESSORIES: Watch: New York and Co./ BANGLES: Forever 21/ NECKLACE: from Roxi/ RING: Forever 21)

Scheduling a trim sometime soon, I know I need it badly.

Proud that I bought this hat at an Icing liquidation sale…from $28 to $1.99 baby. Now, that’s what I call a bargain.

I love my woven Rachel Roy clutch. A good find from Burlongton Coat Factory for less than $20.

After 2 months, I finally had my watch bands asjusted for only $5 at Fiesta. They had to take out 5 links (yeah, my wrists are really small)

Need to learn how to be comfortable with prints on prints.

Did I tell you that I tripped the first time I wore these shoes? But I can’t get enough of them. They’re simply electric.


5  years of living here in Houston and I’ve never been to a Mardigras celebration in Galveston—officially a loser. I had prior commitments anyway and surprisingly the girls had no plans of going either, no group texts and calls. Unlike me they’ve had their fair share of bead-collecting experiences in the past (probably those times when I didn’t have my car yet). On a better note, thesame day as the Galveston Mardigras was my first ‘cantoring’ duty at church and at a very subjective point of view, I did fairly well.  Nerve wracking does not even start to describe what I felt standing in front of the whole congregation. It’s been awhile since I last had the ‘jelly knees’, maybe back when I was in grade school. When I used to perform on stage, the room being pitch black was my comfort. You only had the stage lights and it would feel like you had the enire theatre all to yourself but with cantoring…it was the total opposite. You could see everyone’s faces and you could tell right then and there that all eyes are on you. Nerve wracking, I tell you. Thank you to my co-choir members for being there to support me on my ‘big debut’..haha. You know who you are.
