Sported a mix of corporate and casual pieces to the grand opening of the SM Mega Fashion Hall. This new wing is amazing! There is an olympic sized ice skating rink, top restaurants, and, of course, high-end brands. H&M is one of the fashion brands set to open. I cannot wait to shop at the first branch of H&M in the Philippines!
For the launch, I wanted to wear something comfortable with a touch of seriousness which is how I came up with this outfit. The combination of the crop top with high-waist print shorts topped with a simple blazer makes for a chic ensemble. The mix of corporate and casual clothing pieces result in a fun but put together outfit.

Purchasing from the boy’s section or borrowing clothing pieces from your guy friends or boyfriend is a fun way to spruce up your wardrobe. This oversized blue tee from Topman turned crop top (with a simple knot) brings a laid-back feel to the outfit. The sneaker wedges add a sporty feel to the ensemble (and adds a bit to my height).
This outfit is perfect for those spontaneous out of town trips. It is just so comfortable but, at the same time, fashionable. Try it out for yourself, browse at the men’s section for a change. Be creative and find clothing you can mix and match with your current wardrobe.
You know that cliche saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining?” It’s actually true, if you allow it to be so. Just a little food for thought for the day. Today’s outfit is a constant reminder of that particular saying.
I love the delicate feel of this romper. Its subtle color makes it a breeze to style. I accessorized with polished jewelry to match the classy look of the romper. I wore my adorable pair of turquoise scarpin heels to add a dash of color to the ensemble. What do you think of my polished look?
This lovely bauble necklace is from an up and coming local brand, AVEADENA. To order or to see the shop’s entire collection, visit their official website.

Found this gorgeous romper at Topshop and I just couldn’t help but splurge. I love the hot pink hue and, especially, the lace detail at the back. I styled it with my favorite pair of lace heels from Dolce and Gabbana to stay true to the pink and lace theme. The necklace and cuff are both from a recently launched online shop, AVEADENA. Check out their fashion pieces on their official website.
For a haute and fresh look, white is my go-to-color. It is the easiest way to look polished. Instead of the literal all-white-outfit, I threw on a pair of checkered printed shorts to add an interesting touch to the ensemble.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Red is the go-to color of the day. Why not change it up? I went for a simple outfit with intricate details. This romper goes perfectly with this pair of heels because of the matching bejeweled details. I like the simplicity of the outfit. The rhinestones add an Ibiza vibe to the ensemble. This is one of the easiest outfits I’ve put together — simplicity is the key to making it work.
Floral harem pants are perfect to add a fun but corporate feel to one’s outfit. I got this lovely pair of pants on sale at Apartment 8. I love coming across bargains, especially for stand-out clothing pieces like this one. Since the pants are full-on floral print, I wore it with plain black and white clothes and accessorized with a simple gold chain necklace. There’s already a lot going on with the clothes so I tried to offset it with white barely-there heels.
These pants remind me of those bouquets boyfriends give their girlfriends. I am not one of those girls who love getting bouquets though. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the gesture, I really do, but I just see more value in a single rose than the biggest bouquet of flowers ever created. Just a little advice since Valentine’s Day is coming up. Give your special someone a single rose. Not just any rose though, pick the most beautiful and perfect rose you have ever seen. You could also go with something more lasting but still delicate like a glass rose or something. Sometimes the simplest of things can send the biggest message.

One of the easiest clothing pieces to style are rompers. I don’t just go for any old romper though, I go for either classic or bold ones. It is essential to go for unique looking rompers because it basically comprises your entire outfit — you wouldn’t want to look boring, right? These one-piece wonders are a breeze to wear — just throw on a few accessories here and there and an adorable pair of shoes and you’re good to go. This black and white romper from Topshop is clean and classic but the lace detail on top makes it unique.
I am one of those people who have a hard time letting go of the weekend so I end up just laying on my bed like the lazy person that I am. When I finally decide to get up, I am left with around 20 minutes to prepare for school. You have no idea how much that sucks. LOL. This is exactly why I invest in interesting one-piece clothing pieces — like this romper. It just makes being fashionable easier (and faster).
Apologies for the overexposed quality of the images, I am trying out a new photographer. Special thanks to my awesome friend, Nat, for the photos. What do you think of my outfit for the day?

Channeled a li’l Daisy Duke in today’s outfit. I wanted to wear something dressed down and comfy but still interesting, which is why I went for these cut-offs. This pair of shorts actually started out as pants. I, of course, don’t really like pants so I cut and bleached it to create cut-offs with an ombre effect (view the full D.I.Y. process here). I paired the ombre shorts with a simple stripped crop top from Dash & Donnaand finished the look of with these adorable Sperry Top-sider heels from Shoe Addict. What do you think of my dressed down look?
Special thanks to Dash & Donna for this lovely top and to Nat Centeno for my outfit shots.

Put a little spin on the classic black & white pairing. I wanted the hi-low skirt to be the focal point of the outfit so I surrounded it with white and nude pieces. The gold accents add a futuristic touch to the ensemble. My favorite clothing item in this outfit is the skirt. My siblings call this piece “the cape skirt.”LOL. (It kinda does look like a cape actually) I designed this skirt and had it made. What do you think of it? As for the title of this outfit post, the song entitled “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen keeps playing in my head — I just cant seem to let it go (pun intended). If you haven’t watched frozen I suggest you do because you are a missing a lot. There is enough cuteness in that movie to last a lifetime.
There are days when I just wish I could get school over and done with, but lately I have been thinking about the future and what it entails exactly and just the mere thought of it terrifies me. People have been bombarding me with questions about what I plan to do after graduation and I honestly have no f***ing idea. Don’t get me wrong, I am excited to accomplish the graduation milestone but I am not as excited to free-fall into the unknown. Yes, it is exciting to start a new chapter in my life but that doesn’t make it any less scary. I am not usually a coward but everything is so overwhelming right now. The title says it all — I am simply dazed.
Now onto my outfit for the day. I wore this ensemble to a day filled with meetings and errands. They weren’t all that formal so I opted for a sophisticated top and bottom with a blazer. The blazer ties everything together. When in doubt, throw on a structured blazer/jacket — it does wonders, trust me.
P.S. Nude heels are my go-to footwear when I want to look taller than I really am. It’s a neat trick so try it out!
Decided to make this (former turtleneck) sweater more tropical climate friendly so I just took my trusty scissors and snipped away. There’s something quite liberating about this little project and the resulting low-cut piece of clothing. My collar area feels so free but, at the same time, not too exposed.
I am not usually a fan of green but I was blinded by all the sparkles! The sweater reminds me of a jungle so I paired it with other jungle-like pieces — like my leopard print skirt and gold trimmed booties. What do you think of this jungle themed outfit?
When the boy saw my outfit, the first thing he said was “I can see your bra.” So I said, “I know, it’s so pretty right?” He just made this confused face. I just told him, “what’s the point of having a pretty bra if no one can see it?” The boy ended up doing a facepalm. I know showing off your intimates is considered a fashion faux pas but, personally, I think it’s quite alright — just as long as you don’t show too much.
I wore this outfit to my photoshoot with Ava. It was my first time to do a catalog type shoot for them — check out the photos from the shoot here!

If there’s one secret to looking naturally fabulous, it’s proper skin care. It is essential for every woman to identify the type of skin she has and to come up with a skin care regimen that caters specifically to her skin type. Also, learning the Do’s and Don’ts of skin care will keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
I, of course, have no idea about these things because I simply cleanse my face with water and Cetaphil, so I consulted with the experts of Mary Kay Philippines. I underwent their Skin Care Workshop with the lovely Karen Bordador and Christine Luang. Through the workshop, I learned everything from proper cleansing techniques to make-up application tips. This experience is not only educational but a fun way to pamper yourself and spend quality time with your girlfriends.
The workshop began with an assessment of our skin types and skin care practices. This was followed by the hand spa treatment and the cleansing of the face.
We were all trying really hard not to crack the mask
After peeling off the mask, moisturizing, and toning — it’s time to apply make-up!
Make-up tip: applying highlighter under the eyebrow enhances its shape and emphasizes the eyes.
The daytime look on Karen Bordador. Isn’t she lovely?
Just a few finishing touches and Voila!
Our new and improved faces! LOL. What do you think of our new look?
Special thanks to Peewee of Mary Kay for this lovely day of pampering.
