leopard + boots
(Forever 21 shorts and ring, Zara top, Topshop bag, Asian Vogue Jeffrey Campbell Lita-inspired boots, Yhansy necklace, Plusminustimesdivide connector ring) Hype this look on Lookbook here. What could be fiercer than mixing leopard-print with black platform boots? It’s my friend Marj who’s known to be the leopard-print addict, but I finally gave in when I saw these skorts. Allow...

Just G: Color Accent
(Just G top, skirt and jacket, Capital Vice heels, from Korea socks, bag and glasses, Chase Gosingtian detachable collar) Hype this look on Lookbook here. I think I spent most of my 2010 clothing budget on black, white and gray clothes. 2011, however, is totes my color-appreciation year. I owe it all to the color blocking trend from last summer, really. It made shopping for black and white...
Tutorial: Mori Girl-inspired Doll Eyes
(Liz Lisa cardigan and dress, from Korea floral scarf, Forever 21 hairpin, Asian Vogue heels) Hype this look on Lookbook here. This tutorial is inspired by the Japanese Mori Girl subculture. Mori in Japanese means forest, and this style is characterized by organic, flowy, layered fabric, as well as earthy tones reminiscent of the trees, flowers, fruits and animals that we see in fairytales....

SO! F.A.B. Brand Ambassadors
(Photographed by Tricia Gosingtian, make-up by Marj Sia, hair by Liz de Asis - dream team again!) Photographed the brand ambassadors of SO! F.A.B., Rosanna Aranaz, Domz Tiu, Kryz Uy, Boop and Kimi Yap, about a month ago. Check the website out for more pictures! I love being able to spend time with fellow bloggers, but the dorky photographer in me likes it so much better whenever I get the...
collar + stripes
(Zara top, from Korea shorts, SM Department Store ruffle socks, Asian Vogue wedges, Chase Gosingtian detachable collar) Hype on Lookbook here. Detachable collars are so my thing right now. I had this one particularly made for me because it’s so hard to find good quality crisp ones that aren’t too loose on my neck, but I have two other favorite peter pan collar ones from online...
vintage + cream
(Romwe Snidel dress, H&M blazer and socks, from Korea bag, Wanted oxfords, Forever 21 ring, Topshop belt) Hype on Lookbook here. Sweet, classic, conservative librarian look, still with that brown and cream combination I’ve been using in my recent looks. This is currently one of my favorite dresses because it has these adorable peach floral embroidery details and they look...
gray + pink
(Romwe blazer, Forever 21 lace top and flower hairclip, from Hong Kong tutu, Payless ribbon-printed socks, Michael Antonio heels, Greenhills tiangge necklace, Yhansy ribbon ring) Hype this look on Lookbook here. I got my roots retouched today so I kind of look extra-blonde here. Was contemplating whether or not I should dye it a different color but I think I’ll stick to this for a while,...
cream + blue
(Topshop top, Forever 21 skirt and ring, Yhansy necklace, Payless socks, CMG loafer pumps) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Recently I’ve been creating outfits from stuff that I haven’t been using. It’s been ages since I last wore this skirt out. Somehow it got buried deep in my closet so I almost forgot it existed until last night. Absolutely love pockets in dresses and...
white + gold + brown
(ASTARS top, Topshop high-waist shorts, The School of Satchel bag, CMG loafer pumps, Saizen sheer socks, Diva necklace, Forever 21 accessories) Hype this look on Lookbook here. This color block crop top is yet another gift from Italian-American brand ASTARS’s latest fall collection. Been wearing this a lot recently for the amazing comfort, especially on super casual low-maintenance days...
Kim Hyun Joong Press Con for The Face Shop
Kim Hyun Joong was in Manila last week! My lovely friends and I were invited to attend his press conference for The Face Shop last August 26, and I just had to say yes to this because I was a fan of Boys Over Flowers when it aired, and I rooted for Jihoo sunbae the whole time. That, plus I kind of follow K-pop too and Love Like This, Love Ya and Let Me Be The One were in my iPod’s K-pop...
