My Magic Skirt + DIY chain necklace again!

Let me tell you a little story about this skirt I saw this in SM department store a month ago and was immediately smitten because of it's tiered puffy look.. I thought to myself: " Me likey! Very avant-garde looking.. Am I really in SM?" So I tried it and of course I took it home along with her nude colored sister..

When I went home to try it on again, I noticed that the puffs were not equal so I inspected the inside. I was surprised to discover that the skirt was the magic skirt I saw online a long time ago.. I was so happy to see the knots on the inside!! I was so excited with the possibilities..
I can wear it and puff it differently..And I can wear it as a simple long skirt if I unknot the ribbons inside.. The skirt is such a genius and what's best is it's only 400 pesos! Initially, the puffs were the reason why I bought it but when I tried the long version, I kinda like the starkness of it more..=)

Which style do you like more the puffed or the long skirt?(Tank: Topshop; Skirt: SM dept store; Shoes: Primadonna; Sunglasses: People are People; DIY chain necklace; Bag: Louis Vuitton) Oh, and the necklace is a new DIY.
It's a one-of-a-kind piece not because the materials are rare or it's hard to do but only because I just tied, twisted, knotted and VOILA instant DIY necklace, I don't know how to replicate it hehe..=P

I will be showcasing my little shoe collection for my 50th post.
Don't forget to check back..=)

  1. SM always surprises me, I love buying some of my basics there. The skirt is great both ways but I probably prefer the tiered way of wearing it.. with a cropped blazer it would look siccckkk.

  17. Thank you! My best friend bought the necklace for my 21st this year. Most of my nicer necklaces come from her! :] I love the skirt bubbled. I think it has more volume, which I like.

    And that's so cool that you're a medical student! I'm trying to do nursing, it's so crazy! I still have one more year before I apply to nursing school! I'm waiting and kind of nervous about the applications.

  20. What a great idea for a skirt! I prefer the puffed version, because I really like draping and volume. Great look!

  21. You look super cute! Love that the skirt is so versatile! I love it both ways, but my fav is the first look because I love the layering and that would attract me to the skirt as well. Fab DIY necklace as well!!

  22. great diy! love the louis too! i do love pinkberry, especially now that they've gone a little creamier. but i actually favor red mango because it's creamier- i only wish they had oreos as their topping because i usually get 2 oreo and 1 blueberry for pinkberry so i haven't been to red mango in awhile. my co-worker's friends with the red mango guy who opened the first one in LA so we went to the headquarters before red mango opened and did a taste test. we literally all had 3 medium sized cups of the yogurt!!
