One of the highlights of my 8-day vacation in Quezon are these new toys from my grandmother. I scored a brown leather purse, which is also a good take for a book bag (I have been meaning to look for one that I could carry around), from her, too! My love for barrettes is unending. My Shanghai trip was merely a hunt for the weirdest finds but I only got designs that are made in this era. Ha!

Ama Perly is a safe keeper, which, of course, comes in very handy. I am quite surprised she preserved these. They date back in the 80s, I believe. My cousins and I went crazy. I got a total of 7, the horde in me came out. I was literally possessed.

Black Ribbon with gold and pearl detail. It is the size of the diameter of my head, so I can never wear it with a ponytail. I wore this in one of my looks, I will post it very soon! 
Violet ruffled ribbon. Best with waves and a high ponytail.

I have a new friend. Her name is Lady Sekoia. Love: The black and white crazy print on the fabric, Lady Sekoia's  seashell earrings and eye lashes. We have matching red lips, too!
Brown velvet barrette with gold button.
Green semi-glittered ribbon.  It reminds me of the movie Romey and Michelle's High School Reunion. It reminded Clara of Minnie Mouse.
I am a big fan of hair accessories, I could look at them all day.
