mint green + sheer
(Photos by Chase; Topshop top, from Singapore sheer maxi skirt, cross necklace and wing ring on my thumb, Forever 21 bag and rings on my left hand, Five by Five clogs) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Mint green is my new obsession nowadays. There’s something so incredibly fresh about this color and it has a certain subtlety to it that’s perfect as an add-on to neutrals if...
flowers + tassels
(Photos by Val; Topshop cardigan and corset top, Forever 21 skirt and ring, m)phosis bag - obviously my default lazy bag because it can fit everything, Asian Vogue tassel wedges, from Singapore necklace, Mane Attraction wig) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Mixed girly pieces with black today, for a change. Didn’t think it would work at first, but it’s actually pretty...
lazy day + gray
(Photos by Seph; Pull and Bear hoodie, m)phosis shorts and bag, Anthology shoes) A few days ago, a girl asked me “What do you wear at home?”. I think it’s fascinating how some people think that I’m dressed up 24/7 or that I would prefer to hide than to be seen in public wearing plain clothing. I’ve had people ask me what I wear if I’m photographing and not...
tassels + tail
(Wholesale Dress sweater and keychain, Asian Vogue tassel wedges, from Singapore accessories) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Best time of the year to wear sweaters. Not loving the humidity here in Manila (as usual), but at least the temperature’s been pretty cool recently. Cool enough to survive wearing something this thick outdoors! Wholesale Dress sent me this a month ago, and I...
delicate + wings
(Photos by Chase; Topshop top, Mango skirt, Asian Vogue shoes, from Singapore necklace, Forever 21 ring) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Still a little early for spring, I know, but it’s not like we have four seasons here in Manila anyway. I’ve been attempting to doll myself up recently, in contrast to my previous phase wherein I just piled on black pieces of clothing,...
fox tail + feathers
(Photography by Seph; Topshop plaid top, Mango denim cut-offs, Doc Martens boots, Forever 21 black connector ring, Nasty Gal connector ring, Topman feather necklace, from Singapore fox tail keychain) I have two faux fox tail fur keychains and people who’ve had the chance to see them up close almost always elicit either extreme attraction (It’s so cute!) or some sort of odd,...

red + flats
(Photography by Calel; old dress with giant pockets from somewhere, Gold Dot mustard purse, from Singapore red flats, Quirkypedia lego ring) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Lazy day outfit for a lazy girl. I overused this dress back in college but somehow completely forgot about it until recently. My old clothes have sentimental value so it’s hard for me to throw them out or give...
My Ultimate Source of Fashion Inspiration
Say hello to my 5-year-old collection of Japanese magazines. They inspire me so much fashion-wise, so I always make it a point to get recent issues of my favorite ones (Popteen and ViVi are my Top 2) every time I go abroad. They’re a wee bit pricey, but so totally worth it. A bit unrelated, but I have a soft spot for Nylon too.
Review: EOS King Size Brown
Thanks to Japanese Candy for sponsoring all my contact lenses. I’ve had these lenses for a while now (have to throw them out in a month), but I only got to take photos last month and only found time to write about this now. I used to own a pair of GEO Angel Brown lenses before (my favorite, but they weren’t enlarging enough), so I decided to get the 14.5mm version. I call these my...
