Sometimes I wish I worked and lived in a city with parks or accessible suburbs, so I can have mood pictures for my outfit posts. Or even areas with abandoned buildings. But I suppose the random things and little suprises in the same tired streets of Manila's central business district will do — in the meantime at least.
At the center of my outfit yesterday is an animal claw pendant that I made into a brooch-cum-tie-pin, which fastens a temporary skinny scarf. I have posted this safey pin brooch before, after buying a bunch in different sizes.
Even if I may seem like an urban caged gorilla in my restricted city confine, inspiration always finds its way between the bars. But it may be time for a change of scene...
