Grunge

Grunge


My inspiration for this look is a day to night androgynous outfit. If you live a busy life, it is very important that you dress smartly and the same time comfortably. This outfit basically screams BASIC. I mean look at those collared long sleeves and oxblood leather shorts, they are just the comfiest outfit yet for anyone who travels from one place to another. And of course, you want to dress up without being too chic and laid back especially when you are meeting a lot of people. This look is best for casual meetings and errands. Pairing the blouse and shorts with a gold lace-up heels is perfect for those who want to wear heels even on daily basis; the height is not too high, it will make you look at least a few inches taller. And I found this bag from Topshop, which is by the way very affordable but has the look of that expensive Celine luggage tote. Don't you agree?

Personally this outfit, explains my frustrating mood today. It's as bipolar as I am but bipolar as I can be, at least I am one stylish bipolar. lol :))))))

Do it like a dude

Do it like a dude


If I wanna go and kick some arse, I make sure this is the kind of outfit I would wear! lol. I was just projecting my second semester-first day of class jitters. Well, let's talk about my new session in virtual styling. So I know that I have been telling you over and over about my obsession on corsets and pencil skirts, I go crazy on them too much that I made another post for that. The reason this time is that I want to pull of the swag look. 

In the Philippines, "swag" is just a classy term for jej outfits or simply to put it as offbeat fashion. However, in the fashion world you know what they say art is art and you can't simplify that definition just because. So I made my take on this "swag trend" by making my own version. Although, I was so much inspired with Miley Cyrus and her beautiful body so I made this post. For the outfit, I chose a white corset and a black leather pencil skirt and a faux fur emerald jacket that is supposed to be just hung over your shoulders stylishly. You see celebrities putting their blazers just above the shoulders and not exactly wearing it, right? Yeah, that's what I mean by that jacket over there. What's so special about the jacket anyway is that it is from Balmain. Balmain is a luxury brand that I really admire a lot. They have these simple designs but certainly eye catching. Check out their collection for A/W2014 and trust me it will be a hit next year. Moving on, the shoes are from Manolo Blahnik, as for me Manolos are good but they can be too formal sometimes or business like so there are not so many choices for me but luckily I found these gold stilletos and I know they'd just go perfectly well with the outfit. The accessories, I only settled for minimalism; gold midi rings which by the way are so hot this season and they never fail to finish your look elegantly too! And for the first time I am considering adding a baseball cap for that matter. A part of my inspiration of this look is from the front cover of a fashion magazine wherein the model wore a similar hat with a red lipstick..definitely ze bomb! 

I hope you like my outifit post :) See ya :*

Maxi Love

Max up the night with maxi dresses! I decided to do my take on maxi dresses because I've been obsessing on it these days. I never loved the idea of it at first but seeing these really stylish prints and designs made me change my mind. The thing about maxis though is that you can take it from day to night with making ample changes on your make up and shoes, you can definitely go along way. And what makes it super is that it is just so carefree and you don't have to move consciously to watch out for any peeping toms! 


Watercolor hues are my favorite! The careless splash of colors into the material makes it so youthful and vibrant and always reminds you of summer. Don't we all love summer?


Nudes are the perfect laid back color I must say. If you are not feeling up for dressing, donning on a floor length beige maxi dress and some flats can serve you without looking so under dressed for any occasion. As for me, I call it my default outfit whenever I am in doubt of what I should wear everytime I go out.





 And here is my all-time favorite. the pastels! Don't you just love the way these soft colors play on any skin tone? They never fail to show off the feminine in you. Maxi dresses in soft pink or lavender palette is for the kill, I can tell you enough how much I am in love with that.


Well whatever is that, I am all up for maxi dress hoarding if ever I will these designs in the mall. However, since our malls are in limited stocks or they don't sell these or if they do I must be too late for not noticing these on displays. But I think if you ever plan on wearing or buying a maxi dress, I suggest you have it tailored so that you can adjust it and have it customized the way you like it. If given the chance, I'd have all these designs printed and rush to the nearest designer and ask if they can sew this for me :D Outrageous but satisfying =)

Birthday wish

Birthday wish


A pre-birthday post for my blog! Here is a list of things I wish to have for my birthday this year. And hopefully it will come true :>

1. Denim polo button down because I was imagining of a denim on denim outfit post ♥
2. Acid Wash skinny jeans because I always wanted to have one ever since!
3. A body fit corset; I just can't find the perfect one though or if I found one it is too expensive ( it would be best if someone buys this for me *wink* *cute puppy eyes*)
4. A racer front bodycon dress. Just a spare killer outfit for my soon to be perfectly toned body (lol!)
5. A decent handbag that is both fashionable and functional; any brand will do as long as it is long standing
6. A sneaker wedge; oh I've been dying to wear heels again but then it is too impossible for a school like ours that is so mountainous with strict guards. ugh And sneaker wedges are the perfect solution for such dilemma
7. A beige strappy heels. Hint: I've seen one in Steve Madden :P

Can I please rent a genie who can grant my birthday wishes? 


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...
