Aba, Maria! Punong-puno ka ng... grasya!... sumasabog pa!
(for non-Filipino speakers out there, the title above is a roughed-up translation of the first line of the Hail Mary: Hail Mary, full of grace. In thins case, it's been altered to translate into "Hail Mary, full of grace... and then some!")
This is a rather dainty blouse I found of the racks of an ukay-ukay store in Cubao on the 30th of December. The good news? The pretty lace, the subtly sparkly gray material, the embroidery on the sleeves. (not seen here.) Not bad for P105! (That's about $1.99.)
The bad/tough news? Boobs.
Y'see,I soon discovered the blouse, despite the garter button loops on the bodice, was rather tight in the chest area, and I was left with two options: (1) button up, compress, and leave the loops holding on for dear life, or (2) leave the front unbuttoned, risk exposure, and breathe freely.
Truth be told, I really don't mind letting the buttons go free -- it's quite refreshing, really. I guess I'm just going to have to button up whenever I'm around James. His being protective of me rises in proportion to the amount of skin I expose. Oh, what a guy. :D
But I really do love the blouse. I must take my clothes-hunting to more ukay-ukay sites, if not only for apparel to take apart and customize. :)
