Recently, it seems to me that my style can be grouped into two divisions: the first being Corporate, and the second being Street. No exaggeration there, really. In fact, this new blog post’s photo set falls under the second division.
Street Wear is slowly becoming a staple as of late in my wardrobe–scratch that, it’s already a staple! But can you honestly blame me? It’s so easy to slip into something casual and comfortable. Street is the best compromise–it’s pretty and functional!
Yes, my style preferences as of late are turning out to be complete extremes… yet somehow oddly complementary in their own way.
I’ve also decided to throw in trousers into the mix. As per the advice of an officemate, I’ve decided to patronize jeans and trousers more often. She said that my torso is much shorter than my legs, which means that I’ve more legs than I do a torso (which is default for every human being but she says I have it in excess), coupled with the fact that being “long-legged” is considered by most people to be an asset, ergo… why not flaunt it?
I figured, why not indeed!
I’m still a bit wary though of my allergies to detergent contact but I’m sure it won’t hurt to wear jeans every other day. Besides, I’ve instructed the household to use a hypoallergenic variant to avoid irritation. Anyway, I think trousers are a refreshing take. It also allows me to be mobile. Besides, I can’t be in skirts and shorts all the time anyway.
So this was the outfit I wore to run a “special” sort of errand last Saturday. I put emphasis on the term special because normally, errands for me consist of: paying my bills, buying food, shopping, and gassing up my car. This time, I was off to check out this new Avida Land project called Vita Towers.
I’m at an age where I want to invest in assets. I’m not getting any younger and I can’t always spend my money on frivolous things. I have to learn to prioritize as well. I’ve recently gotten my own car and so now, the logical next step is to invest in a property. Yes, my parents have several properties all over the country, but this time, it’s altogether different and special because I’m taking a conscious step to purchasing my very own home sans the financial support of the Parentals.
You know that feeling? Finally being independent. Show of hands please!
Since my work is mostly in QC (I’m in Makati during Tuesdays and Thursdays in our Fort Bonifacio condo), I prefer to have a property in the area. At a convenient location and a reputable company at that. Thankfully, this Avida Land development is smack-dab center in the North triangle, and developed by an Ayala Land subsidiary (assuring me that my investment is being put somewhere safe).
So their first development for Vita Towers is Vertis North, a 30-hectare masterplanned community with a 2-hectare central park and storm water management system; it will soon be home to various trade and lifestyle centers.
Starting just last Thursday, it’s now open for public (an event I unfortunately missed). More than 500 units will be sold in each of the three towers they’re building varying from studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom units. These will be complemented with sensible amenities like a garden nook and a Grand Lawn, which will be thoughtfully designed to bring a relaxing breathing space amidst the hectic cityscape.
So if you’re looking to invest in Quezon City, drop by Trinoma to see their Avida Towers display or visit their website: www.avidaland.com for more details.
