Combat Ready11:30 PMCarla Florendo
I think I went a little overboard when I thought about doing another army-inspired look; I mean, leather-trimmed parka, cut-out combat boots, and camouflage? Well... But on second thought, no regrets. It was a good call that I decided to wear a pencil skirt at the last minute, instead of the black skinny pants that I originally had in mind. It became one of the key pieces that tied the outfit together, making it look a little less ragged and a little more posh, together with this gold chain necklace that I recently scored from Cotton On. The only drawback is that I forgot to wear a hat/beanie. But I guess there's plenty more time for that later.
Anyway, I just got home from my dad's annual company dinner party. Can you believe that he, along with another 8 or so people, were given a loyalty award by their employer for having worked for the company for a decade? I mean cos I can't. I'm like, man, I don't think I'll ever last that long in one company (unless it's a magazine company where I get to choose my clients/projects and style people and work with clothes, ha!)... it's already hard enough for me to go to work everyday and am on the verge of quitting without making it to my first year, let alone 10 years? It's just so unbelievable in my opinion, but nonetheless am very much proud of him (Congrats Dad!). And as usual, I'm bloated for having eaten too much. Can't help it - I'm uncontrollable when it comes to buffet dinners. But since it's this is the ultimate month for celebrations and gatherings, I won't try to hold myself back. In fact I can assure you, this is just the beginning. I hope you guys are having a wonderful December so far!
