Metamorphosis



Not long ago when I would shy myself away from dark colored outfits especially when paired with equally dark to black lippies. It feels so different from my style before thinking that it is actually creepy to some point.


But defying my resistance to change, I now can’t stop sporting this kind of look. I now see it as more of sultry and mysterious rather than old-looking. I guess I’ve up grown my very bright colors/ pastel loving self and I now appreciates a more mature approach of style.


IDK with how you see this outfit but it somehow gives a vintage feel for me. The turtleneck fad last year was still carried up to 2016 with its versatility to suit any style from one peg to another. Good thing it was really cold that time in Tagaytay so I did not break a sweat.

 
The truth is I have an intimate affair with maroon, it is just so elegant whilst still being edgy. So for these brogues I wore, you are L-O-V-E.
 

The only accessories I wore aside from my watch (watches, I think are so necessary that if I have to glue it on my skin, then I would LOL.) was this layered necklace that amp up my basic game.
This quilted leather skirt was so chic yet so tough, urgh I’m in love with it. It gave warmth somehow. So “it” being so short was already forgiven.
             
        I’m so glad my hair wass still red at the time I don this look. It adds to the appeal I’m going for. 

 



 

 
The moral lesson of this story kids is to not be so adamant with everything. Give yourself a chance to embrace the new things coming your way. I know it can be hard but time, courage, and perseverance are the key. I know I’m speaking so deep just for fashion but duh, I’m really speaking in general life, haha!
 
 
 Itadakimasu!
 
 Anyways, I treated my mom that day to a date in Tagaytay. We were craving for something Japanese so we ended up eating at Rai Rai Ken. We ordered their combo meal that consist of a bowl of Ramen, Donburi, Gyoza, and some appetizers to complete the heavy serving. Ours were happy tummies after the gastronomic lunch.

Fierce and Love


How do I feel about the end of 2015? Well, actually it is exciting to know that I would have another chance for a shot to live it up as 2016 reveals a new chapter of 366 pages for us to fill in. Yet, the bygone year still holds some of the highlights of my life such as my Graduation to top it all off. I also got to go some places for the first time, received an award, built long-lasting relationships with my friends, acquired new skills, learned experiences the hard way, and know myself some more. But much to my chagrin, I don’t think it’s one of my best years yet. So I made a promise to myself to make this 2016, the year where I will grow to the person I would like to meet and look up to.

This time I vow to have a bold heart and daring mind when it comes to everything. I also prayed to God to help me be more of a blessing to others by being more caring and gentle yet tough and invincible when challenges arise.
Just like how my outfit represents the birth of new woman I aspire to become, I veered away from what seems to be ubiquitous fashion-wise like the transition from sky-high heels to cozy sneakers, and other too much for your comfort style, even the man-repellant style which I have nothing against to since I root for it too.

Same goes with my life, I don’t want to drown in the sea of complacency but rather be unique in my own ways even it is not what is expected from me. I don’t want to live on their standard because I’m my own queen who rules my own life.
I opted for the bohemian style by donning this intricately printed kimono over nude lacy corset and shorts. I want to interpret it this way; outside I am a warrior ready to slay but inside is a shy lady with nothing but love.



I am rockin’ this ear cuffs that spells punk while being glam with its rock.
Layered necklaces are one way to have fun while being able to wear your blings not just one at a time. You can play with textures and materials like metals with jewels and crystals, and so much more. Sky is the limit.





These gladiator sandals finish off my look. I’m more of a comfort girl when it comes to footwear but I don’t believe that I should be stuck in simple and normal ones. Without wearing pain-inducing stilettos, I can be elfin appealing too by choosing flat shoes that has character.




Facing the year with full of hope and confidence, I am now firing up to experience more terrific adventures, enriching and thrilling travels, meeting new friends that are for keeps, career goals, more ca-ching, ca-ching, haha! Of course, self-discovery, and if this is the time then a love life for myself.
This 2016, what are you letting go to chase for your bucketlist?

Little Cafe

                    At the day of countdown to NYE, there I was sitting pretty in the cozy couch of this charming café with my bae, Claudine. It was not usual for me to go anywhere else aside from home during December 31 as it is the busiest time of preparation for welcoming the New Year. But this time was an exemption because I did a lot of catching up with my bestie that I've last seen like months ago but oh boy, it felt like decade already.


                       So the mini reunion was so worth it because at least we've got to see our faces again before 2015 ended. Anyways, one advantage of going out at that time was that we get to own the place since less people are visiting. Like this café that we seemingly had the chance to explore each corner I guess for some IG and blog-worthy shots. With its adorable and modern design, I just couldn't resist but strike a pose just like the old times whenever I'm with my girl. Oh, how I miss our moments.



                             The place is also perfect for chilling out, group studies, or even to just grab a snack. I just so lurve the whimsical decals for the interiors and its subtle colors with some hint of cheerful colors to give it a punch of playfulness and modern take.





                Would you take time to guess some stranger's life or maybe wait until you spot a cutie outside, hmm?


                        As for my last OOTD for 2015, I decided to look cute and young by donning a jumper shorts but injecting some lady-like appeal into it with an off-shoulder top. Then some classy pointed shoes are the perfect touch of sexiness into my youthful ensemble with some red details to match my hair.

Cherry on Top





 



 

                               
                           Just posting another casual OOTD. This one is very simple with no other accessories aside from my aviators and kawaii Panda watch. But my red hair suffice the no fuss outfit that I just pulled off in five minutes because I'm going to be late at work, haha!
