Trendy jacket

My son got this jacket for P500. He’s eyeing this jacket for some time now and promised to go back to the mall once he raised the amount. Like his sister, Kyle loves to wear jacket and has been collecting a few pieces since junior high school. I wish to get the same design in size xxl or xxxl perhaps.

On a different note, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer is selling doumbek, an instrument that belongs to drum and percussion family. For those who love exotic instrument, doumbek is for you.

What to wear on my child’s graduation day

I’ve been looking around for the perfect outfit to wear on my daughter’s graduation day. I’m on the heavy side and I want something that is comfortable and presentable. I don’t usually wear a dress so most likely I would be looking for a pair of knit black pants and a loose blouse. I will choose a pair of shoes that can also go with my pair of jeans on ordinary occasion. This and some reviews on http://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifiers/tube will keep me busy this weekend. Do you have any suggestion?

Basic items to build your wardrobe (for beginners)

I stumbled upon an article about power dressing and thought the list could be useful one day (especially for my daughter who will be hunting for a job a few months from now).

Build your wardrobe with the following basic items:

1. Black jacket or a well-fitting blazer

2. Black pants (not pleated)

3. Black skirt (slightly above or grazing the knee)

4. Inner tops (white/khaki/gray/light blue shirt that can be worn with pants or skirt). You can also invest on some tank tops, knit tops, striped baby t-shirts

5. Accessories  ( beads, dainty chokers, silver jewelry, pearls)

6. Black heeled loafers

7. Black boxy nylon bag (not to0 big but just roomy enough to store your essentials)

8. Makeup or Kikay kit (may contain eyebrow pencil, nude or brown lipstick, eye curler and mascara, face powder)

Buy the items that you need on a buy-when-can-afford basis. They need not be expensive. You can always look for cheaper but quality pieces in local shops.
