As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I love dressing up when the weather is cold. It’s not everyday I can experience it in Manila so I really want to make the most out of it while I can. Hehe! šŸ˜€ And my fave pieces when braving the cold? Leather jackets, coats and boots! I managed to bring one pair of boots only since I had to bring several pairs of shoes for work. I also thought I might be buying more boots since I have already anticipated that shops would be selling winter clothes and accessories during this time. Well, true enough, I ended up buying two more boots! Ugh! The thing is I bought them on my last day! Now I wonder when I’ll get to wear them again! LOL! šŸ˜€ In fact, I just debuted the motorcycle boots I’m wearing here and in my previous post. I got it last year before I left London, but I only got the chance to wear it now in China. I hope it won’t take another year for me to wear those boots I bought. Japan here I come! LOL! šŸ˜€ I’ve been rebooking my flight to Japan because of my sudden trips to Shanghai. If I would finally push through this January, it would definitely be freezing cold! Hate the winter cold, but I can’t wait to wear those bargain boots I got!!! Haha! šŸ˜€ Will post about it soon. Anyway, here’s another outfit as I brave the cold in Shanghai!

This was my day 2 in Shanghai. It wasn’t that freezing cold yet so I managed to wear a loose blouse underneath my leather jacket. It’s actually a nice glittered blouse, but the shimmers aren’t evident in the photos because of the bad lighting. šŸ™ Oh and yes, they had to curl my hair in day 2 since it was my fitting day. They had to make sure that the clothes would blend well with my hair. šŸ™‚

Of course, with Mr. Louis… šŸ˜€ (Sorry, the color of my leather jacket and bag are too bright because of the flash!)
