Prison chic + Sunday Duty Outfit

Being a medical intern, we are allowed to wear civilian clothes during our weekend duty. In this Psychiatry rotation we are allowed to do so but they have a dress code:

*no sleeveless/tube tops/plunging necklines/see-thru
(if you wear sleeveless/tube you'd have to wear the uniform blazer over it)
*no miniskirts
*heels are a yes but no open-toed sandals

So I wore my ever reliable men's checkered polo.. This is probably one of the pieces I get most wear because it's no fuss and it's very comfy.. I avoid wearing clingy stuff because it's so hot in the hospital and there's so much work to do that I don't want to worry about my top.. I'm also wearing my super old (6 year old) pink suede pumps from Mango..
(Men's polo: Folded and Hung; Jeans: Topshop; Suede shoes: Mango)
Haha and just for kicks I edited this picture to make it appear spooky because last night our resident doctor was telling this crazy scary story about a patient dying in that hall.. And apparently, it was his death anniversary last night! Hmmm I don't know if it's true but it sure scared me!

Moving on..
This was my outfit last Saturday the boy and I got our doggy's papers from the breeder and on the way home we went to Eastwood for an early dinner and I ate Red Mango frozen yogurt for dessert again!! I'm so obsessed with frozen yogurt I actually ate 4x in a week!

(Orange dress: Zara; Cardigan: Zara; Shoes: from Rockwell bazaar; Bag: LV)
I'm wearing a dress/top I bought last weeek from the 495 sale rack in Zara.. I can't believe it's only 495 ($10)! I'm actually not a fan of orange because it reminds me so much of the prison uniform here in the Philippines. I probably own only 2 orange pieces in my closet but I still bought it because I can't resist the SUBTLE DRAPING at the hem.. Plus the upper portion has 2 buttons and when you unbutton it the dress looks like a vest..

So versality + draping = yey!

Renegade Folk shoes
And here is a close up of the wrist candy I wore on Saturday (top) and Sunday (bottom):
Top: Both Folded and Hung
Bottom: L-R Tomato, Carolina's, Accesorize
I got the red pearl-like bracelet for only 10 pesos (less than $0.25 cents) =)
such a steal right?


  1. What a steal.. Im not a huge fan of orange either but you look fab!

  2. HAHA.. love that you said Prison Chic in the title! Your orange top worn as a dress is way cute.. love the front draping. And I def. agree that a men's plaid button-down shirt is always a reliable choice. We have Red Mango here too, though I'm a fan of Pinkberry slighly more. My sister prefers Red Mango though. :) Great arm candy as well!

    xo, Becs

  20. wow, this dress immediatelly caught my attention, completely my style and guess what, i made a prototipe of a dress that looks exactly like this dress, the turn on the front is the same , the only difference is that in the prototipe you can open the dress and turn it into a vest. amazing how people think the same :x

  21. hey! yes, i do the drawings. whenever i have the time i like to draw. well, the prototipe was a work for a school project in my fashion course, maybe someday i'll finish that up into the real piece. so, how r u involved in fashion? or u just like it?
