CChristmas is in the air! Soon we‚Äôll be attending ‚ÄúSimbang Gabis‚ÄĚ either here in Cebu or like me in our respective hometowns. With that, we can all have that legit reason/ excuse to fashion or style ourselves like we‚Äôre going to a snowstorm. (LOL) Anyway, Christmas isn‚Äôt for our selfish reasons. Christmas, First and foremost, means the birth of our Lord. It also means family and the season of thanksgiving. So let me remind you fellow Cebuanos, Filipinos, fashionistos and stylists to be grateful this season with an excerpt of a song to sum it all up.
‚ÄúLook at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.‚ÄĚ
Look How They Shine For You
I feel like I‚Äôm getting sentimental and mushy. It is so not I but‚Ä¶ I have to and we have to. We have to stop and show all those people who have been a blessing in our lives. We have to thank everybody that has been there for us. And I am talking about our parents, families, friends, colleagues that have given us what we have now, even our enemies. Show all of them that they shine in your eyes.
And Everything You Do
It is also our time to give back. Let them feel that they have a place in your life. Even a small thank you is enough. Or better yet, give time to those people.¬† A simple effort can do wonders. Of course, let‚Äôs include our enemies. (I know, it is a harsh term.) If we can‚Äôt make peace with them at least include them in our prayers. (If you could, it‚Äôs not mandatory, though. HAHA!)
Yeah, They Were All Yellow
I seldom use yellow unless it is a subdued hue of it. It is because, in my case, I find it hard to style. With this ensemble, the bonnet takes all the attention. Imagine if my pants or shoes were yellow. I would look shorter because as I‚Äôve said many times in my previous style and fashion posts that we should always be strategic in placing the focal pieces of clothing in our outfits. It is also strategic that all the remaining colors of my clothes are either black or white even the shoe. I just let the yellow bonnet shine.
