My family attended my second cousin's first birthday last 24th of June, which was held in Prestige Building. Since it was a kiddie party, it follows that it had a theme. Being someone whose birthday has never been with a theme, I was greatly contemplating on whether I'd wear a costume or not. Feeling bata forever ako. Okay lang naman, maliit naman ako eh. I was thinking if I would wear the costume which I had made for my Market1 class (which you can find HERE) but then some intervention happened and stopped me from doing a very embarrassing thing, thank God! Though I never had a very detailed birthday party, I'm ready to let go of my frustration because of my cousins' ultra arranged parties. (My 6 year old cousin Caoume Valle has by far the best children parties I've ever seen, I tell you) I'm such a sucker for my baby cousins' smiles :)

Here's another kid in the party whom I had to take a picture of cause she's just too cute to pass by without complimenting her cute wings
With Tita Joy and the birthday celebrant, my 2nd cousin Sofia
She had 3 different costumes but this one is my favorite because the dress came with the matched shoes which has the insignia of Chanel.
This is just so cool! Ang lakas maka feeling mayaman Hahaha
On to what I wore. I decided I'd be Alice in Wonderland but then as I was browsing the clothes in my wardrobe, I couldn't find any white apron and blue collared day dress. So what's a girl with a mission got to do but browse some ideas on how I can still look like Alice in the net. Thanks to Vogue for always saving my life :)
"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"
“If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.”
"You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."
“I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then. ”
“Where should I go?" -Alice. "That depends on where you want to end up." - The Cheshire Cat.”
"Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction."
"Good advice. If I listened earlier, I wouldn't be here. But that's just the trouble with me. I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it."
"I warn you dear child, if I lose my temper, you lose your head. Understand?"
“You would have to be half mad to dream me up.”
Natalia Vodianova didn't wear any blue day dress with a white apron. She wore Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Viktor & Rolf, Donatella Versace, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier, Olivia Theyskens, Nicolas Ghesquiere, and John Galliano instead. But since I'm no supermodel and I am just Gellie, I had to settle to the more obvious details: blue and white.
