Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

OOTD: Grungy autumn

I wasn't sure if I should post this outfit, but what the heck, I spent so much time obsessing and second-guessing what I would wear last weekend that I might as well just freakin' do it. I'm not a fashion blogger hence the blurry pictures and awkward posing, but these pictures are the only thing I have.

So, please don't judge me harshly. :P Moving on! I've spent the last couple of week scouring the malls for the perfect fall outfit, but found it difficult to find something that would keep me warm in the 15 to 5-degree weather AND still be wearable here in the PH. I love Stradivarius's current black and white, 90s grunge collection, so all of the clothes I found were from their store in SM Aura.

It was veeeeery cold in the morning and at night, but once the sun's out I can get away with opening the coat. :P I'd like to say I enjoyed the biting cold weather, but I didn't. I freeze easily and it's just so uncomfortable to go inside toasty warm stores after the temperature outside. 

Oh, and that coat. I got it for around P3,500, which is a really nice price considering. I love the fit although I wish it was lighter. It took up half of my big duffle bag on the way home!

The Aldo bag is an old one that I unearthed from my closet. It was perfect for traveling because it was roomy, light, and a good contrast with the black & white clothes I brought with me.

So there you go! How do you dress for fall here and/or abroad?
