Painted Lady

.. which, incidentally, is also the name of a group of colorful butterlflies, subgenus Cynthia. It also happens to be the name of a murder-mystery miniseries, starring Helen Mirren as a washed-up blues vocalist turned art thief.


What I really want to say is, I really feel like I'm one of Frank Frazetta's painted ladies here.

With more clothing, less chain-mail bikini, and just as much oomph, of course. 

Parisienne good-girl flats for the streets... 

... and bitch shoes in the office. 

Add bowler hat. 

sleeveless pull-over: hand-me-down, brand unknown
top: Julia Plus, by Robinson's Galleria 
wiggle skirt: upcycled from a pair of stretchy slacks 
flats and stilettos: random bazaar stalls 


  1. Girl, your shoes are love. And talk about your nice legs and feet.

    I'm more of a sneakers kind of girl but I miss wearing high heels. Even if it did hurt my feet, I used to pretend walking in the catwalk and the streets of Makati were my runway but in reality, I was running late, again. LOL!

  2. Thank you, Gene! I'm glad I can still get some mileage out of them after such a long time. I've a feeling I'll need to replace the tips of my heels sometime soon -- or get sturdier shoes all-together.

    Now I'm the one who misses wearing sneakers! There's something fun about pairing comfy sneakers with denim skirts. :)

  3. Bitch shoes! Hahaha Brilliant :)

  4. Hehe, Thanks, Meream! I believe I may have to hunt for more betch shoes in the future.

  5. Damn, those are some awesome bitch heels! Lookin' hot- I want a bowler hat too now!

  6. Thanks, Weesha! I'm lucky I've an officemate who's into fine hats. He offered we make a collective purchase, I piggy-backed, and we got it! :)
