How to Wear the Knitted Top for Under PhP300 (or USD 10.00)

By Seyra Rico - 2:58 PM

Hello, everyone! How are you all doing? I hope all my Western readers survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I must say, I can see the neighbors putting up their Christmas lights and tress and everyone wants to feel the holiday cheer! I've been so busy lately, it's like I just woke up one day and it's 23 days before Christmas. I am kinda in good spirits now, because I know there are better things to come. 

I wanted to share with you a holiday party outfit idea, since I can't escape the cold, even if I live in a tropical country--the knitted top! This piece of clothing is so warm, yet hard to pull off. Maybe because knitted tops are more commonly worn by people found in front of the fireplace, sipping hot chocolate and watching It's a Wonderful Life? Ha ha ha! The key is to choose something that is more body conscious, then pair it with a flattering skirt and heels. A statement necklace won't hurt either! I found this top on an ukay-ukay shop in J.P. Rizal in Makati City, and it costs PhP 85. And I bought the skirt together with this one, which cost PhP 150 for two. Such a steal, right? The bracelets I bought for 10 pesos each, and I am very proud of myself right now. Hahahaha.

Also, I am enchanted to be a cohost of Monica's blog, Jersey Girl, Texan Heart. She's a Polish fashion blogger who's living in New Jersey right now. She had overcome so many struggles and came out stronger than ever. I love her passion and drive to succeed.

  4. I absolutely adore this look! The fun pattern and colors of the skirt with the knitted top, everything works so well together! Too bad it's too cold here in Seattle to wear that, I would have to wear more layers.
