Hi, I’m back! I’ve been on hiatus from blogging and it took me a month and half to actually write again. I won’t delve on the details but all I can say is, I was all because of work. I missed my blog 😦 I missed writing. And most of all I missed new friends (fellow bloggers,readers,drifters) I met here on the net. But now I’m back, I’m so excited to write again!

On to my Outfit of the Day. My look is Parisian-inspired.

I am a huge lover of anything French. From the movies and books I’ve encountered, I do believe there is something romantic about Paris. I am at awe on how rich French culture is: food, places, films, music and fashion. France is on top of my “places-to-visit” list.

Wearing simple pieces helped channeling my inner Parisian chic. ❤

Where I wore this? On a night out with new friends. 🙂

These girls are so much fun to hang out with. We lived together for a month and I guess we clicked because of similar interests and personality. Plus, they are all nice!

OOTD#8 Boots & Stripes

It has been raining here in my country quite a few times and would get super cold. In these kind of weather, you mostly could find me at the safe haven of my bed with tons of pillows and deeply asleep. It feels so great to laze about on bed when it’s cold. During rainy days, I don’t usually make an effort dressing up. I like to wear something more laid-back. I would wear jackets, long-sleeved tops, leggings and accessorize with scarves or beanies then viola, done. For footwear, flats or rubber shoes would do. Simple, nothing fussy. What matters to me is I get warm!

Lo and behold, the forever debate between comfort over style. Which do you prefer? For me, I would choose both just to be safe. And c’mon, you can do both. You can be comfortable and fashionable with what you wear at the same time. But I do admit, in some instances I prioritize style. Like when something (example, a dress) doesn’t fit on me, of course, you wouldn’t wear it anymore. Well for me, if it’s a favourite dress of mine, I wouldn’t care if it doesn’t fit, I’ll still wear it. Admit it, you’re also like this. Aren’t you? Hmmmmmm…. LOL  😀

Big THANKS to those who read my posts and for the likes&love.
Also grateful for the people who would always leave me comments!
Now I ask you,
which do you prefer? Comfort or style?

Let me know!

Words To Live By

I haven’t been posting quite recently. I’m currently a part time student for now and have been dealing with some stuff going on with my life. But there is never a single day I don’t think about my blog and the people who supports it. So here’s some great words that could inspire your day. Take care 🙂

“Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.”

OOTD#7 Alice in Wonderland

OOTD#7 Alice in Wonderland


lookbook.nu

Hello ladies!

It’s a quite rainy here in the Philippines for weeks now. It feels good to laze about in morning, on the bed and do nothing. Unfortunately, I’m attending classes so I have no time to be idle at all.

I used to think that whenever the weather is not good you ought to wear dark or dull colors. I think there is no general rule that you can’t wear bright colors or even summer dresses during rainy days. As a matter of fact, wearing bright colors during these days could improve your mood and combat the feeling of the blues and gloom. I spiced up the whole look by wearing bright pink pointed-toe heels (which by the way I am loving at the moment 😀 ). I used to dislike pointed shoes because they pinch my toes and I thought it look funny on my feet. But now I find them adorable!

But of course if it’s cold don’t forget to put on an outerwear item like jackets or coats. I paired this floral dress with a skin-tone cardigan but this would also look good with denim jackets. I love this dress because of the bright colors. Plus the style of the dress, like the cinched waist, square neckline and wide flair skirt, reminds me of the outfits in the movie The Stepford Wives. I love this movie and watched it when I was 13 years old. I just fell in love with the 50s/ 60s style. You can also see this style on the TV Series Mad Men.

It’s actually fun to go against the rules, try and experiment stuff (for me especially with clothes). Cause not only would you look good but you would also feel good 🙂

Have a nice day, you guys 🙂

OOTD#6 Monochrome Obsession

OOTD#6 Monochrome Obsession

I’ve always been obsess with monochrome style. I love pairing black to a single color: pastel, neon, white or would mostly go all black. You can see this style anywhere, the runways, streets or on magazines.

A timeless way to style oneself.

It’s always been my style ever since I got into fashion and to tell you the truth, my clothes are mostly black (it’s crazy. teehee 😀 )

I also find matching black to anything easier than the printed ones. Although I’m comfortable with black (or any dark colors), that doesn’t stop me from experimenting with different styles in fashion 🙂

What about you?
What’s your style?
Do you also like to go monochromatic or all black?
Lemme know!

OOTD#5: Simply Floral

OOTD: Simply floral

Hey ladies!
I wore a simple floral dress with mustard-yellow heels at a friend’s farewell party. This is my third time to wear floral print (ridiculous right?) because I used to be doubtful/ hesitant of wearing florals and how it might look on me. Probably another reason was cause my mom used to forced me (possibly traumatized too) to wear girly clothes when I was little and I was having none of it. But I was powerless, my mama always win our disputes, she’s definitely a force to be reckoned with 😮
So back to the present, I only own three floral-printed clothes but since I discovered my ‘experimental-side-in-fashion’, I plan to acquire more of it with different styles. I do have my eye on the trending floral pants.

Blog Thoughts: Dsquared2: The Mean Girl Diary Capsue Pre-Fall 2013-14 Starring Jasmine Tookes

Hey everybody!
So yesterday, I got to watch this video from FashionTV via Youtube, Dsquared2: The Mean Girl Diary Capsue Pre-Fall 2013-14 Starring Jasmine Tookes.

Dsquared2 is one of my favorite designers. Dean and Dan Caten are so amazing. I’m so in love with their style and the designs. I love watching their runway shows and the clothes (don’t even get me started 😀 ). The clothes give off personality, attitude and sophistication. I especially like it when they have formal pieces (like a gown) and adding something unusual (a leather cap) that would not entirely throw off the whole look but spicing it up a little, which makes their style so unique. Plus their clothes can be worn by anyone of any age.

OOTD #4: Aztec Tuesday

OOTD #4: Aztec Tuesday

I hung out with my sister today to watch the Man of Steel. I actually wasn’t looking forward for this one and I was telling my lil’ sis to skip this movie and just wait for World War Z to premiere (coz I adore ZOMBIES 😀 & Brad Pitt 😛 ). But she was so adamant to watch Superman. So I went along with her and I must say, I was impressed with the film especially the sfX. I liked it. 🙂

My outfit of this day was an Aztec print top which I love, love, love so much. It’s light, comfy and I adore the Aztec design. I paired it up with my favorite high-waist GUESS jean shorts and simple flats (I can’t find the same brand in Polyvore though). I played around with the outfit by throwing in a funky green belt.

LOVE.
