Blush


There's no denying that it's feels so good to wear trendy clothes that drowns you with its presence in every fashion related materials, it's just gives you the idea that you are one of those perfect models slash  celebrities slash bloggers. But unfortunately , the truth is that those fads would just come and go and may have the tendency to leave you bankrupt if you had spent most of your resources to stock up on those or worse you might be labeled a fashion junkie who just follows what is new at the moment. 


 Yes, I've been once a victim of that fashion illusion but is now happy that I'm progressively recovering from it and I'll gladly share with you a tip on how to still rock those clothes that you (or would- in case that you are still stuck on the syndrome!) regret buying compulsively.

Oh the cropped top, yup it's so versatile and I do still think that its charm and use won't ever fade, well kind of, but think of it as a fast forgotten piece of fabric once a new soon to be popular clothes come out in your favorite apparel shops and being worn by almost every girl. 


To maximize the use of cropped tops until forever if you like or until it just tear apart, you could pair it with items that are considered classic like the midi pencil skirt. After all those vintage classics are here to stay and is being revived by the fashionistas all around the world. 



It even pass up as a business outfit like what I did with my look today. Just layered it with yet another wardrobe necessity piece which is this blazer and I'm good to go. With the choice of bold color and nice touch of print, no need for too much blings this time.

Touch Love

The title of this post has actually nothing to do with my outfit, just a random thought but the explanation behind this title is actually my latest obsession right now. Touch love is the OST of my current fave kdrama which is the Master's Sun (I'll be doing an outfit post inspired by that soon!) It's korean, I know but upon relying on our bff Google, I found its english translation and well, it's cute. Forget the tongue confusions, what important is that I enjoy listening to it.
Anyhoo, I certainly been playing it safe with the past looks I worn because of the feminine and solid colors so I wanted to give my style a switch every now and then like this one where I put two prints together. Not so extraordinary but interesting enough to create diversity on my daily business ensembles. Also take note of the colors i chose, its dark unlike the pastel vomit I've been commited to wear more often.
I have this perception that once its stripe it has a parisian effect for me, add a scarf and totally au courant. While this skirt reminds me of if not high school uniforms, those men who plays bagpipe, weird eh.

Brogues are the shoes that I would wear with anything, its androgynous appeal adds twist even on the most girly outfit. I even used to own the same color of these brogues but the difference is that these have heels, cool! But the kitten heels is so comfy that i managed to walk and semi-run in it when we scoured the street of Imus to search for a client for our subject requirement.

On the coming days or weeks I'll be posting some other-related stuffs here for a project, hope you'd support me and follow/like those social media accounts I'll be posting here. Ciao!

Shore Thing

There are days when I just want to dress up casually but i just can't resist to add a little touch of something to spruce my outfit up. That is when the magic of statement/graphic come to the rescue. 

Heat be damned, but I'd still don denim on denim like it's a natural thing to do, but to appease anyone who would be scandalized to see me in this kind of fabric, light-color version are my bet.

The anchor on my inner top is just so darn cute, I just have not met someone who doesn't like anchor design and I don't think I ever will.
A splash of unexpected color is what you need to show a bit of your wild side may it be on your accessories, shoes, or in my case the bag.  
Because I don't want too much action in my outfit, I chose shoes that in the same color but in a adorb floral print.

Lemon Plus Mint

Now that I'm near the brink of my college life, confusions and doubt frequently come and go inside my mind; what career path I should follow, opportunities that I may encounter, risks I need to take in order to grow, and lots more.  But enlightenment really shows right into your face at unexpected times like today when an alumnus, Mr. Jerry Ross Misa came to have a short talk to promote his baby (no, not that kind of baby!) but his very own agency called Big Brother Manila that will be launched this 25th of July together with the 8th anniv of his dad's production agency, Abracadabra. Like what he said, it's amazing because that will be the day of celebration for the father's anniversary and the birth of the son's brainchild. 
He is actually the only Filipino endorser of the Red One camera which is the new trend when it comes to videography/ cinematography international level that is yet to come here in the Philippines so because of them we are about experience greater advertisements, awesome right? But I won't do much further ado and just search more info about it yourself to fully understand what I'm saying.
The BBM are actually recruiting those who are interested to learn and he is up to train the potential students and who knows one of them might be absorbed to work and be part of their cool team. 


  I know you might be interested with what I told you above but I can't let this post go without any fuss about my outfit today.

Like what I said in my previous post, I've been dressing up in pastel colors lately and I feel so light and vibrant. But to take it up a notch I wore this canary yellow cardigan that is so vivid but not to the extent of an eyesore even I accessorized it with equally intense color of this turquoise necklace, it actually looked good even though it's not in the same shade palette. 


 Since my pants are plain white I can liven it up with a cheerful floral print. To balance the playful colors of my ensemble, these mint shoes are just perfect- simple enough not to overpower the look but not still pretty not to be blah.

Cloudy

During my OJT days, my outfits would always have something white in them or sometimes it's like white day because I'm wearing white from head to toe. I could even survive wearing only white items (but hopefully it won't happen) and still manage to look stylish.


   For me, an immaculate white exudes classy and sophisticated appeal and you'll always look clean. In contrast with what others say that white is boring, I beg to disagree because with an interesting touch like an intricate texture and pattern in the white clothes' fabric, the wearer will instantly look chic and fab.



But the catch is white is prone with stains and that I can't afford that to happen but the  chance is high this rainy season. So I have to adjust by wearing colored pants instead. 
Then I decided to go matchy-matchy with the color of my accessories.

Elixir

 It was a bit of surprise to me when my cousin told me that I'm usually dressed in neon-colored clothes, well there was really a phase in my life that I fell in love with neon but actually I don't consider myself always clad in that color so I realized that it is funny how others easily remember a person simply by the colors he/she choose to wear.

But one thing I learned recently is that we should always reinvent ourselves, and of course because I love fashion I decided to relate my change with that. 
I've always love donning feminine outfits not just because of the cut, style, and fabric choice of the clothes but also the colors which are mostly pastels. Light-colored clothes are so fresh-looking and very classy; two things that I really want  to sport.
I love gold accessories more than silver ones for I believe that it can make every ensemble look sossy and royal-looking.
Speaking of royal, this bag caught my fondness because of it's studded crown design.






This number is apt for a corporate outfit which I really worn for our Tuesday Business Attire Day. Like what Liz Uy and every fashion guru says, the white, crisp polo is a must-have and a basic essential on girls' and even boys' wardrobes. It's so classic and well-rounded you can dress it up any way you want but my OOTD went the formal and polished way when I paired it with this peach/salmon palazzo pants that are very cute that it got a lot of compliments from my friends. :)
