Whether I intended for my top to match my newly colored hair now a shade of copper care of Matrix Philippines, I wouldn’t know.  I’m honestly still getting used to the color although K-Stew’s recent hair transformation plus a reminder of LiLo’s Auburn locks are quickly steering me in the right, accepting direction.

Much like the copper result, its color counterpart in the form of this tropical top also took me by surprise. A bunch of prints are infiltrating my closet and I’m the only one to blame. Interestingly, I seem to be gravitating towards the same prints. I have a whole range of palm trees, pineapples and camo pieces to complete matchy-matchy looks. Of course the realization of identical inventory conveniently comes after the shopping fact. Oh well, at least there are printed options this time as opposed to a sea of indistinguishable black pieces.

The impulse buy that offers zero buyer’s remorse is actually from the newly opened Dorothy Perkins in SM Megamall’s Fashion Hall. It was my first time to shop at the brand and was pleasantly surprised by the range of trendy pieces – from pastels, to florals, to the now ubiquitous twosies. For the gents, Burton Menswear London just opened its first store in Manila as Dorothy Perkins’ next door neighbor. Check both out, buy a bunch of pieces. I’m pretty sure guilt-free shopping will translate from my screen to yours.
