Have a TOMATO Summer!

Now who is in summer mode? Tomato is!

One thing I love about this year’s trend is the comeback of the  1960s fashion–polka dots and vibrant colors ahoy.

Now Tomato has infused all those in their summer collection! Just look at these pieces!

What I love about them is that the pieces, the top especially, just show the right amount of skin–not too itsy bitsy *cue Itsy Bitsy Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song*–but still great for a beach trip. I’m definitely gonna grab one. Hee~

Patterns + Dots (and a Few Unrelated Stuff)

For the past couple of days, I’ve been watching documentaries about the horrific shooting rampage in Columbine High School and Virginia Tech University, both in the United States. I know they’re old news but it still bothers me why those young kids resorted to those crimes. I’ve learned from research and documentaries that these kids, namely Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold (Columbine), and Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech) were most probably “bullied” and depressed children, who took revenge by killing their schoolmates. Cho, however, was a stuggling writer. He’s so passionate about the craft but never accepted that he still had a lot of things to improve on. He also had selective mutism, a disorder that prevents a person to speak in some situations but is normally capable of speech. He only had one friend throughout his college life, excluding his English mentor, Lucinda Roy, who painstakingly tutored him on his writing. It struck me when Roy noted how disturbing it is that Cho, a very anti-social person, is desperate to be noticed though his work. I guess that’s really how some people think. It’s just that, maybe, Cho’s psychological state worsened, the same thing holds true for Eric and Dylan. His anxiety disorder and depression mutated into something more dangerous that lead him to commit a gruesome act.

Depression is something that should not be ignored, bullying included. I’ve seen the effect of it on people a lot times, one was firsthand. I could be pretty depressed at times too, but it is always good to have a support system—friends, loved ones—who are willing to divert your attention to something else. I’m quite thankful actually that I’m always busy. I barely have the time to wallow in self-pity. I have my friends, the boyfriend, my blog, and many fun activities to focus on—e.g., outfit shooting! (HAHA. Segue!)

Okay, so I will stop bombarding you with my thoughts. Anyway, one thing I do before I wear a risky garment outside of the house is I take pictures. No kidding. I don’t trust my mirror, so I turn to the camera for a second opinion.

These trousers could be easily mistaken for a table cloth! Trololol. If not worn right.


I’ve always believed that trousers like these, a.k.a harem pants, are not meant for short people to wear. It makes people look a bit wider and shorter, and midget ones like me can’t afford to look like a dwarf. Please, all we want in life is grow a few inches more. Hahaha. But then again, I don’t want to be limited just because of my lack of height, so I turned to my nude heels to see if I could rock these pants.

What do you think?

Added a few more edginess to the look by wearing this winged skull connector ring and animal print bangles.

Adorned the whole looked with humongous nerd glasses and bow headband for some quirky touch.

I don’t know how to make that sexy bed hair. Would anyone like to teach me?
