wanted: ultimate shoe closet

i am obsessed with organization. sometimes a little too obsessed. (my first closet post here.) if blessed with the storage space, square footage and credit limit, the ultimate shoe closet would be one of my first home-rennovations.

until then, pictures of these lucky ladies' closets will have to suffice.

summer scarves

i'm such a fan of summer scarves (or scarves in general). it's something easy and light to brighten up any outfit. here are some scarves on my current wishlist:
Madewell via Shopbop

and here's me with two friends on the Met steps during a recent visit to NY!

alexis mabille

i'm a sucker for gossip girl. that's the only reason the CW is probably still in business. i fell in love with a recent alexis mabille couture dress blair wore.

birthday suit

so, my birthday has come and gone. birthdays past the age of 21 aren't as eventful as they use to be. my birthday last year was pretty tame too. i blame it always falling within exam week. even though i am not in school, i pretty much celebrate on cinco de mayo - few days prior to my joyeux anniversaire. i can't complain to a day dedicated to tequila and sombreros. this year, i took the low-key approach and had a seaside dinner with the beau.

can't complain. the sunset was beautiful.

met costume gala

to be at the met gala is any fashion girl's dream come true. surprisingly, my favorites were not my typical inspirational fashion icons, except SJP is always one of my faves. nice surprise from these young ladies.

funny story about the mcqueen dress above... i actually had a replica made of this dress in 2006 for my debut, which is the filipino equivalent of a sweet sixteen. mcqueen had my heart even before his fall 2005 collection.
