My Fake Poetic Trip

I sometimes find comfort being too sad. I love pain because pain ignites ideas. Pain defies the deaths of stories. Pain and madness make me write. It’s like being in a trance and the next minute I am already writing, grinning at the thought that I have outlived pain. I want to be possessed like the way one of Nick Joaquin’s tatarin moves. But mine would be different. I want to possess and be possessed forever by poetry.

I’m tired of depicting women as pitiful creatures. I’m tired of having a patient woman, an understanding woman, a silent woman. I want a screaming woman, the howling woman, the mad woman.

My Under-the-Weather Fashion

Actually I’m just sick. And I tend to be too clingy when I have runny nose and terrible headache. I’m a mean person when I’m sick. Mean and needy.

I had to go to the mall last night for some errands. Though it’s summer season in some parts of the world, for the past few days it was cool in the Philippines. I wore my thrifted white long sleeved dress (the collar is just too cute not to be noticed), with my mid high socks (my knee high socks are in the laundry) and Vans Old Skool sneakers. The whole outfit is comfortable for gloomy girls like me.

How To Dress Cute When You’re Sick

What you need:


Messy (But Sexy) Hair

Because taking a shower or washing your hair is one of the most difficult things to do in the world when you’re sick. Also, messy is the new sexy.

Your Best (But Comfortable) Sneakers 

Yep. Because the last thing you want to wear is your pair of high heeled shoes. Be prepared when you have that strong feeling that any minute you’ll feel dizzy or worst when you’re ready to vomit.

Knee High Socks

Mid-High Socks (Or Knee High Socks)

There are types of bacteria that live and grow in cold temperatures. When you’re feeling under the weather, always keep yourself warm.

So this is my Sick Day Outfit – with absent eyes.

Why Fashion Socks (And All The Frills) Are Making A Comeback

Why Fashion Socks (And All The Frills) Are Making A Comeback

 I feel nostalgic. Frilly socks or bobby socks can bring such a very terrible nostalgia. Lace socks remind me of school girls back in the 90s who classically wore their frilly socks and loafers or a pair of Mary Janes. Today lacy socks and knee high socks are common even for girls who aren’t school girls anymore.

Jordans and Frilly Socks


White socks appear vintage and most girls traditionally wear them with their Mary Janes or boots. Let me do the honor to break that tradition. I’m wearing my frilly socks with my pair of Air Jordan shoes and I feel amazing, like what Alex feels each time he drinks that milk plus with something else.

Dr. Martens 1461 Cherry Red


I’m wearing my Doc Martens 1461 Cherry Red Smooth paired with my ribbon ruffle socks. In 1950s, most girls wore their lacy socks with their loafers or Oxfords for the socks to be visible because your socks are basically a part of your whole outfit.


Dr. Martens Mary Jane and Frilly Socks

White socks are conventional, they’re fascinating though. The best thing about white socks is that you can pair them with any type of shoes. It’s interesting how white socks remind me of the Korova Milk Bar where Alex and his droogs drink milk mixed with something else. Ahh, the horrorshow groodies.

I’m wearing my Dr. Martens Mary Jane shoes. Mary Janes were extremely popular in the 90s, along with chunky heels and creepers. I remember wearing my first platform sneakers when I was ten or eleven years old. You wear the sneakers or you don’t wear anything.

Dr Martens and Topshop Socks

I’m showing off my Mary Janes from Doc Martens and my frilly socks that I got from Topshop. Topshop has a variety of socks for boots, ankle socks and frilly socks that are available in different pastel colors – purple, black, green, pink etc. They are made of cotton. I prefer cotton socks, they’re really comfortable and won’t hurt your feet at all. It’s as though you’re walking on the clouds or something. Clouds make me feel sleepy too, like the way grasses do.

I love socks with very cute designs and laces. There is a strong feeling of euphoria and nostalgia each time I see cute socks. Back in the 90s, I remember teenagers wearing knee high colorful socks with dyed hair. Socks are undeniably another fashion tool to show your fashion style.
