I don’t pretend to be some fashion expert… I have accepted my personal style and slowly developing my NOT and HOT matrix when it comes to clothing. One of my peeves, for example, is dressing up not according to the climate. My take is you can dress comfortably and still look well put together.
Case in point: Socks with high heels. Not stockings – SOCKS. I’ve seen it in the fashion magazines, and kung sino man nagpauso nito… hindi sya taga Pilipinas siguro.
One very warm weekday evening, while having our usual get-together dinner in Makati, AFP gasped in dismay:
AFP: “RGP! Ano yaaan?” (While looking under the table)
Snapping out of my quiet moment, (i.e. eyeing the super hot model surfer dude who was seated across the way) I looked at what AFP was about to bust a vein about.
AFP: Ano yang suot mo?! Medyas ba yan?
S: Good god woman. Da hell were you thinking?!
(Note: Yes, ganito ang friendships ko…)
RGP: I’m wearing socks…
S: With 5 inch heels?!! (Sabay take ng photo with my phone)
AFP: Wahahaha! Baket?! Baket?!
RGP: Para comfy… andami ko linakad today.
S: Dude, there are those footy sock thingies you can wear. Pwede naman ganun. Hindi kita
RGP: Eh komportable ganito noh.. And anyway hindi naman kita pag nakatayo ako since mahaba yun slacks…kay Daddy nga ata tong socks na ‘to eh…
AFP: Wahahahah! Send mo yun photo kay FSS sa whatsapp…
S: (does as I am told)
FSS: (via Whatsapp) I’ve seen that done by Gucci. (Sends photo)
RGP: SEE?!! High fashion pa!
S: Dude…pwede yun sa lugar nila siguro… tropical country tayo…
Anyway tuloy tuloy lang ang argument namin at hindi matinag si RGP. Well, to each her own naman… pero aawayin ko pa din sya pag inulit nya ‘to.
