It’s been a year since we went to Manila by riding a bus and this time, Fhabs and I traveled to celebrate his 24th birthday in a famous luxury buffet restaurant (full post on the blog soon!). The weather is becoming unpredictable lately and commuting in Manila is a “Train to Busan” scenario so I planned my outfit sensibly. I wouldn’t let anything, not even fashion mishap, ruin the special occasion.
I wore this velvet leopard print number which was a no-brainer for enduring the heat or braving the cold weather. Its eye-catching details also stood out from the plain road along the seaside and even reflected my vibrant attitude. To complete the look (again in a sensible way), I wore all things leather (bag and shoes) for rain protection. Here’s a hint of animal print in the big city.Ernest Le Gamin dress | The Metro Store (via Marquee Mall) sunglasses | Bag from London | Emerson (via Big W) slip on sneakers
