Rock Star Look

I'm going to a rock star-themed Christmas party/meeting.

I already have a black jacket, black tee, black bag, black stockings with orange embroidered trimming, glittery bangle, white pearl bracelet with black ribbon, stringy metallic chain necklace.  This is what I get from having a menopause baby for a sister young enough to be my daughter.

My sister said to wear denims, but since I want to show off the stockings, I decided that I needed a denim skirt or shorts.  She was a little shocked that I would go buy something just for a party, but then, I can still wear it again, anyway.  I bought a white dress for a Globe event, and I got to use it for an Appetite affair.

My Fb status asked two people to suggest where I can get denim shorts or skirt, Topshop?: my batch mate Amy who wore denim shorts at our homecoming, and my Fashion Guro, who had brought me to Debenhams to try on a denim skirt, which fit me but which I didn't buy because of the tummy bulge.

Their PMs below:

Amy: 'if you wanna buy denim shorts/cut-offs, just get them in Greenhills tiangge...NOT Topshop!!'s only 350 while in the mall stores 999-1500!!!...are we talking about mini skirt??...the nice ones that I have I got from Zara or Mango.'

Hoop earrings
FG: 'Forever 21, mango, SM, Marks & SPencer, Zara, kamiseta.'

Hmm.  Two women liked Zara.

I PMed Amy: 'ty! i went to Debenhams because i remember that they had my size. meron nga. i gave up on Greenhills tiangge 2 years ago when i couldn't get my size after two hours of searching. mini or long. Zara does not fit me, loose here, tight there. got the skirt for P 1,950.'

It's not easy being green or fat.

I remember when I could easily get clothes at Greenhills tiangge.

Now the Greenhills tiangge Large P 200-300 shorts are too small for me, and I spent P 500-P 1,000 for Accel skorts in Galleria Sports Loop.
Dangling antique finish earrings

When my 80-year-old 3ima saw the earrings that my sister had lent me, she sent over hers.

Now which one do I wear?

I'll tell you who owns which earrings after you tell me your choice. :)

My sister said that I could wear boots, which will be difficult for me to find with my flat feet.  Both she and my 7-year-old niece said that I could wear rubber shoes too.

I asked her if Pabder would work.  She had never heard of Pabder.

She got back a silver bangle that I wore on my arm.

When I asked my niece if I could wear these shades, she said, 'No.  Cool shades.'
She said that I should choose between feminine (pearls) or edgy (bling) but I said that it's a costume party and I want to win.  I'm going more for the Lady Gaga, than the Jewel look hehe.

For the hair, I printed out this photo to show Linda Salon when I get a haircut.
