I just read that a Filipino organization here in Norway is celebrating the Philippine Independence day on Saturday (10 days before the actual Independence day, but well … they probably got their reason 🙂 )

Anyways, with the Philippines in mind, I thought about the unforgettable experiences I had when I last visited the country. I wouldn’t want to go into details about that because first and foremost, if I start, this little post of mine will turn to a noble …. and I am not a writer ….LOL….. The thing is, what I really want to share is that I found the Northern part of the country fascinating! I’m talking about the rice terraces, the richness of their roots and traditions, the people and most of all their costumes (  perhaps not that much to get excited about but … hey, what can I say … I’m INTO fashion so 🙂 ).

This ensemble is inspired by the Ifugao costumes … with my little twist 🙂
