Sexy Shift


Hello everyone!  I’m back but saying writing “it’s nice to be back here” has been very hard.  It’s been a difficult couple of days since I stepped foot in U.S. soil again – missing all the love and warmth of my family back in my native Philippines.  I have the warm and sunny Southern California weather upon arrival though to thank for alleviating some of the separation anxiety but it still is never enough.

I should be counting my blessings at the way the blog and my life here are finally shaping up – but suddenly all the things I disliked about the Philippines (like the H&H temps, crazy traffic, slow wifi – the list is long btw) didn’t seem so bad anymore as long as I am with my family and close friends.   So don’t be surprised if one day yours truly disappears from the face of blog land to go back to where I think I really belong. ♥

So via this black shift dress from TOBI – you can now tell that I am a sucker for textures such as the lace inlay design.  Aside from that, I can’t get enough of how TOBI is such an expert at injecting sexy details like the extreme halter cut of this LBD, which highlights my almost-defined (those military push-ups are indeed a bitch!) deltoids.

There are also blog commitments to fulfill and I can’t thank my dear sponsors enough for their patience.  Right now, I am particularly looking forward to launching another 3-part collaboration from STAYING SUMMER - a huge line of chic and cute clothes for Summer and beyond!

    Sewy Shift, indeed! I am in love with this dress! All of the details and the sexiness…magnificent. I am so sorry that you are feeling homesick for your family and friends. We would miss you in blogland if you decided to go, but totally understand the importance of close family and friend support in this crazy, beautiful life!

    Thanks so much for linking up with me On the Edge. I hope to see you again this week. Have a wonderful day!

    It’s always hard to come back after having spent time with family and friends in your native country! I’ve been living here for 25 years, and it’s definitely not getting easier…

    You look amazing in the beautiful shift dress!

    It’s always so hard coming back from visiting family! I hope you can relax for a few days and get back into the “groove” of things, but having family and friends far away is tough.
    I love your dress! Super cute and would be perfect for cool weather too with a jacket and booties!
