Topaz Fashion: What I wore this week

I realized, looking at all my photos for today's Topaz Fashion edition, that I have a signature pose!

Saturday. I wore this really comfortable maxi dress from And Apparel when we ate lunch at Milky & Sunny (never again!), went to Christ the King Church to finalize Iñigo's baptism details, and visited my in-laws. I like it because it's easy to breastfeed in it, it hides my mommy bulges and it has pockets! I wore it with my pearl necklace, Vince's Skagen watch and leather sandals from Charles & Keith.

Monday. I had lunch with Nicole and Kat. I'm wearing an Eden dress for breastfeeding (the bodice is double layered so I can lift it up and nurse discreetly) and my tweed Anthology flats. The purple shades are Charles & Keith.

Wednesday. Four months after giving birth, I can finally wear a bodycon dress! I actually bought this a month after Iñigo was born. Vince went shopping with me. He picked it out. One look at it and I thought he was kidding. It was a small. But it zipped up okay (a bit of a hiccup in the tummy area) but, all in all, it looked okay. But now it looks great! Yey!

I'm wearing an Unarosa dress and Nine West pumps. The bag up there is a Fino but before I slipped out the door, I changed my bag to my cream Longchamp clutch, to match my shoes. This is what I wore to the office.

Thursday. I am wearing my husband's Levi's. It shrunk in the wash. He is furious with Levi's because aren't Levi's denims supposed to be pre-shrunk?! It's a good thing it fits me. I've never worn a guy's jeans before. I've borrowed Vince's shirts, boxers and watches. Oh, had I known how wonderful men's jeans are on a post-baby body...!

Wore this to lunch with Jericho Rosales (more on that soon!). I call this my modified Katie Holmes (circa 2009) look. Modified because Katie wore baggier men's jeans with really high heels all topped by a loose button-down shirt. I wore my hubby's jeans with a buttoned up Bayo cardigan and Sapato Manila two-tone heels. I was supposed to wear a chunky necklace but, because I had Iñigo with me, I took it off. He plays with my necklaces when he breastfeeds!

Friday. I call this my almost-matrona look haha. I wore this to a lunch meeting with my OK! magazine staff and also to shop at Shangri-la Plaza later. The top is Zara, the silk shorts are... I don't know. The ballet flats are Lacoste. The diaper bag is Cuzo. The shades are Charles & Keith.

Okay, off to Shang! Toodles! I hope you're all having a fashionable Friday!

    1. Exercise lang yan and diet. Or, if you don't want to exercise and diet, invest in really good underwear that will shape your body.

  9. Hi Frances!

    May I ask what happened at Milky & Sunny that you don't want to eat there again? I usually have a good meal there. :)

    1. Oh, Roan, I'm not a food snob, I can eat at a carinderia! But when mahal ang food (parang Pancake House levels na ang Milky Sunny), dapat mag-level up lahat. The service took forever. The food was blah. The pancakes were rubbery. I've eaten there twice and same thing happened. I'm not going back a third time.

    2. You're right, they're quite pricey for a neighborhood resto. :) -Roan
