Librarian chic

Hold on – you definitely wouldn’t want to flip the page on this one. Just when I thought I’ve seen it all when it comes to upcycling – local brand “Kuwit” proves me otherwise. Behold, the “Nobela” clutch bag!

Ruby, zero visibility

We can all celebrate in relief that typhoon Ruby has left the country. It was a rainy afternoon, as you can see the puddles reflecting my OOTD, but reality continues. It was kind of chilly today, hence the ala grade school socks. What do you think?

Kuwit Nobela bag (used as a sling) | Zara suede black heels

It feels like I’m back to my grade school days wearing black shoes with ankle socks. The TRUTH behind that is the shoes were a tad bit too big so I wore socks for it to fit snuggly. Just right! I dub this as the “Librarian look” :))

Kuwit | Handcrafted upcycled books

I love how it is ORIGINALLY a book that has been given a second life in the form of a fashion accessory. It’s so smart! It gives that comforting feel when you get your hands on a hard bound piece of literature – with a stylish function!

Kuwit purse | Php1,300

The bag is made of sturdy material, fully line and closes with a magnetic round lock. You can use it two ways: a sling or a clutch. It’s the PERFECT gift for all your bookworm friends! If you ask nicely, they might even customize for you ;) The price is so reasonable for such a unique handmade piece. See the available designs here.
