Cafe 1228 at New World Makati ♥ ♥


IMG 3811



We celebrated my cousin Dianne's 18th birthday at the New World Makati's Cafe 1228.

The theme was "Mismatched." As in come in totally conflicting, clashing, contradicting fashion.

If there is one thing you need to know about me, it is that I have a terribly boring fashion sense. How adventurous I am with food is how unexciting I am with my wardrobe. My style is simple and classic (and I adore magical draperies that make me look thinner than my 160 pounds.) 

So this was a huge challenge for me. But I didn't want to be a spoilsport.

The whole night I was praying nobody would see me! Lol! :P
