White Island and retro beach wear

8:39 AM

A moment of silence for its beauty...
(I made this collage with pictures found on the internet, except for my self-portrait ^.^)

It's difficult for me not to fall in love with white sand beaches. I was born in a country blessed with hundreds of different beautiful beaches. I've been to a dozen- like Panglao, Moalboal, Bantayan, Tabuelan and the list goes on. But this summer, I went to the most beautiful white sand beach called "White Island" (obviously lol) and my mouth literally dropped on the ground when I arrived. It was paradise. I was looking for the perfect picture on the internet to show its beauty but to no avail. No photo could come close to how ridiculously magnificent the view was. I guess the best way to understand me is to visit the island! Ha-ha. I stand in awe of God's creations. He is indeed a wonderful God. One of the many places we visited in Mindanao. Enjoy.

{Self portraits taken by my smartphone, so shitty quality but thank God for HD phone editors kekeke}
 Anything 'high-waisted' reminds me of retro fashion. I saw mum's pictures back in the days and believe me, these fashion pieces were on its prime. Now its getting a long come back, since I've been donning retro beach wear since 2010. I'll put a small collage of my different combinations below. For now, check out what I wore at the beautiful island!
The pre-swimming outfit. I am in love with that vintage glasses I found in Gensan City. I've been looking for it all over Cebu and who would've thought I'd find it miles away? For a cheaper price, too!
So instead of using DSLR photos I decided to post my phone pictures because I'm too lazy haha!
What I Wore: Black tube top-SM Dept Store; Leopard harem pants-online shop; Feather earrings-SM Dept Store; Dream catcher necklace- Camiguin souvenir shop; Vintage glasses- Gensan City
Deuces! Couldn't get anymore retro-er than this? Haha. Red and yellow definitely screams VINTAGE!
What I Wore: Fedora hat; Yellow one piece from Ayala Dept. Store; Highwaist red bottom from Hot Pink in Ayala (originally had a matching stripe bikini top); Heart glasses from Girly Glam

~Old and not too old photos~
Red head scarf, white cat eye glasses, blue star printed maillot & a faded highwaist shorts~ Easy pin-up look!
Snapshots from my vacation in Panglao Island, Bohol last February 2013. I've been too busy to actually blog about this trip. :(
Snippets from 2010-2012 retro get-up.
