I am a School Girl

Summer days are almost over, so I'm getting ready for my academic outfits. I promised myself to change my fashion for this coming school year. Well, I'm changing for a number of reasons: one is because I don't wanna be an attraction in our campus, second is I don't wanna give an impression to people that makes them feel intimidated and third is because I wanna try a laid-back chic fashion for the whole of first semester. As much as I want to bring out the stylist in me, I have to hold back my creative outfits because it's not fit for school. The only remedy I have is to innovate my fashion but still with a touch of vintage (which has always been a part of my daily outfit).

This time I opted for much simpler ones aside from my lazy days outfits that consist a simple shirt, jeans and a flat shoes or a my pair of vans. Like the Androgyny looks, these are the outfits that are a bit boyish by adding some blazer or jackets but you still look pretty and stylish in it. Another hot trend in fashion today are the Peter Pan collars, may it be detachable or not, bloggers are wearing a lot of it as I've noticed. Wearing these collared shirt maybe styled by adding another layer of cardigan over it or a sweatshirt to have the smart-casual look. Then you can add style to your outfit by wearing a tweed jacket (I personally like it because it reminds me of the mystery stories' fashion of Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley) although it is not that applicable here in the Philippines because of it's tropical climate. And lastly, the revival of the flare pants. I know it's so like Fashion '60's but who cares? It's stylish and simple and you don't have to buy those pants because I'm sure almost everyone has this kind of pants hidden in their closets. You can just simply pair them with a shirt that's skin tight at least to balance the outfit and nail the outfit by some platform heels.

Yes, in college you have to look your best. But that doesn't mean that you'd sacrifice your studies for that. You can look good, however, you should never forget the very reason why you are in school. Look Pretty. Study Hard. Be yourself. Enjoy College and have fun! :)

Fierce in Print

             Fierce in Print


I actually have an account at polyvore.com (visit me by clicking here) because as we all know I am a frustrated stylist so I do my virtual styling in there. It's like my stress reliever to style clothes that I wish to wear in the near future. So, this post is all about my audacious venture on wearing prints and vibrant colors. I chose those leopard print shorts to help enhance the mint colored cropped top and then neutralize the whole outfit by adding beige and dark brown accessories and a black aviator shades. So what do you, guys, think about the outfit? :)

Groovin in Heels


People may not know it but I really love to dance. It's like my hobby, exercise and my passion, all in one. I've learned several dances through watching repetitively the music videos in youtube and later on make my own moves on some songs. As far as I can remember I've mastered Jai Ho by Pussycat Dolls, Drop it low by Ester Dean, International Love by Chris Boriw ft. Pitbull and now I am trying to learn at least four songs: Dance Again by Jennifer Lopez, Don't wanna go Home by Jason Derulo, More by Usher and Turn up the Music by Chris Brown. I don't know what's got into me that I decided to revive my dancer self. For almost the whole week now, I've spent my mornings dancing these songs and I really do hope that I've made some improvements in learning those steps all in the same time. But this time I wanted to do something different, I wanted to dance these while wearing 5-inch heels. Isn't that cool? I mean it has always been my dream to dance on a 5-inch heels  the way beyonce and JLO does because any girl who could do that is totally hot for me. I know it's gonna take sometime before I could perfect it but still, no pain no gain. :)

I do not only have passion for fashion but for dancing and reading as well. There are still a lot of things that I can do and I wanted to do. I want to be versatile and adaptive to change so that I can grow as a person. So I hope to anyone who can read this, you may have the determination and motivation to do the things you love. Don't quit easily just because you feel that something's not right or its too impossible to reach. Remember, even IMPOSSIBLE says I'M POSSIBLE :) Sending all my good vibes to everyone!

Primer



I am no make-up artist. But one afternoon, there was this sudden surge in me to try it out. I was kinda bored and I invited my yaya to this something crazy and that is to learn how to put make-up. Of course, as a newbie I went to youtube to observe how girls put on their make-up. So I chose to try on a bronze-smokey eye. I know I am so daring to name it such when as a matter of fact it didn't go exactly that way. It was so funny because the black eye shadow smudged on my face. I know, I know I told you I'm no good in these things. Hahaha. I used a lot of earth-toned colors in here like dark brown,  black, light brown/beige, and a bit of orangey-brown color and layered them on top of the other. Then of course I had an eye-liner. Put on a little blush-on and a light pink lipstick. I know it isn't that clear in the pictures  because I had to make some necessary edits in order for it to look presentable. I might look a clown if you see the raw photos. Anyway, I hope you guys would love it and soon when I master this craft I might give you some professional outputs. :)

A Lively Fashion









Okay, I really don't find the drama series "Gossip Girl" interesting at first.  Until I got the chance to watch it on a regular basis because I'd rather watch it than watching the evening news. And when I began to understand the flow of the story, that's when I started appreciating the show. 

Serena van der Woodsen--a young stunning elite on the high-end streets of Manhattan is one of the main characters in Gossip Girl. She's an epitome of what every girl wanted to be. Blake Lively, who is portraying the role of Serena, executes her role perfectly. In real life, her role as Serena isn't so far from being Blake. She shops, she's parties, she's an elite. The reason why later on I became a huge fan of Blake Lively. I adore her taste in shoes, her fashion and style, her everything. What made me love her more is when the famous shoe designer Christian Louboutin send her a whole packaged of the yet to be released shoes for his Spring Collection. Isn't she lucky? Who among us wouldn't do anything just to be in her shoe, right? Knowing that she has always been a Louboutin lover, that whole thing was just a lovely surprise. Blake has been a muse of all the top fashion names in the world, like Chanel and many others. 

Right now, I look up to Blake Lively as my inspiration. She's everything I want to be, except of course of the acting stuff (hihihi). She is the fashion goddess, I must say. Whatever she has right now, is what I've always dreamed of. But I guess, it isn't that impossible to reach right? It only takes a lot of effort and hardwork and of course a lot of prayers, to make it all happen.

My Ten Most Wanted

It's been a long time since I last updated my blog. Sorry for that guys. :) Now that I am back, I'm gonna write about the ten things that I wanted the most as of the moment.

This satchel bag is my dream bag

Bib necklace 

Yellow cut out dress


blue high waist skinny jeans

T-strap platforms 

Mint maxi sheer skirt

Classic black pumps

basic orange polo

lace bustier

Nude chiffon blouse

I don't know if you have noticed that I am so addicted to earth colors and with a bit of bright ones. It's kinda obvious in my past posts, well the reason is I don't know also. For me blue and beige brings out the sexy in you. They are simple colors that enhances your skin tone. And the only two bright colors that I really love aside from pink are yellow and orange. This year I am trying to add a little color in my fashion palette and these two are just the perfect ones. The things I posted above are really my fashion must haves as of the moment. So I wish sooner or later I can have all these.



Things I will never Tell Anyone

 1. I am criticizing you in my mind No, I am not judging you. I just have the disease of wanting everything to be perfect even if it will...
