Quarantine Errands

VernaAbril - QuarantineErrands (3)

It’s not easy to get out of the house because of the current situation we are in. Your keys and wallet are not the only things you should never forget if you get out of the house, you also need to remember to bring your face mask! Thus, I wore one when I did some errands yesterday.

A video went viral last March showing re-purposed Shell Rimula engine oil plastic canisters, which were used as container for passengers’ fare. In the video, you will hear a passenger jokingly saying, “Bawal mangupit (stealing is not allowed).”

Unlucky at the #DBSNauticalChristmas Party

The Davao Bloggers Society Christmas Party was held last December 7, 2019 at Home Crest Hotel. The theme was “Nautical Christmas” but I never had the chance to prepare a bongga outfit due to time constraints, so I only wore what was already available in my closet that was close to nautical. And yet , I was unlucky because I never got chosen to be a finalist for best dressed. Of course, everyone in the event were dressed to the nines. My outfit was nowhere near how bongga their outfits were. If I only had the time, I would have worn a Philippine Navy uniform lol.

Casino?

This post is long overdue! Wore this outfit last June for our Acquaintance Party which had “Casino Night” as its theme. I had no idea what to wear, I even considered wearing the basic Verna formula which consists of t-shirt + shorts + sneakers or slides. As a guest in a casino, you are expected to look a certain way. I googled some outfits that I can wear and most of them are suits, sparkly dresses or feather-y skirts. I don’t wear formal clothes that much, only when specifically told to do so, or the event requires me to wear one. I don’t even have a dress watch! Good thing I had these clothes ready for me to wear, I didn’t have to spend a single penny! So, what do you think of this look?
