Just G: The Long Weekend
(Just G striped top, blue oversized shirt, white shorts, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue heels, from Singapore necklace) Hype this look on Lookbook here. [[MORE]] I’m back from my week long trip to Singapore, and this was my fuss free lazy outfit the day after I arrived. I am happiest when I’m photographing and traveling, and being able to do both while I was there was nothing short of...
Windsor, Stonehenge, Bath April 2012
On the day we were scheduled to go on a road trip outside London, the rain just poured like crazy (much like what we’re experiencing in Manila now), so as much as I wanted to take a lot of pictures, I had to save my camera from getting wet. Must invest in waterproof travel gear next time. So here are the very few pictures I was able to take during that day. Sadly, taking photographs was...
“Your style has changed a lot.”, says one of my friends. “Oh yeah? I guess it really has…”, I reply. It’s been so long since I started this blog, and I cringe at a lot of my outfits from 2009/2010! And 5 years from now, I’ll probably look back at this post and ask myself, “What the hell was I thinking?” (Bayo top, pants and...

Paper Kitten Nightmare
(Sheinside top, Choies headband, Yesstyle skirt, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue heels, Made U Look clutch) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Quick post! This is a compromise between my own personal style and Japanese MODE style which is my primary fashion inspiration for a while now. Again, it’s all mostly black with white, and a single item that’s another color. Usually yellow. I should...
From South Africa With Love
(emmaoclothing dress, Jeffrey Campbell heels, Chicify Cole Vintage bag, Bayo belt) Hype this look on Lookbook here. [[MORE]] Thanks RG for taking my pictures again! Love this dress as much as I do? It was handmade from South Africa, and a lot of the sales of this brand help families in both South Africa and Zimbabwe. Since the brand started, unprivileged kids in both countries have been...
London April 2012 Part 2
After my family and I finished familiarizing ourselves with London via bus tour, we decided to take it easy and go to the tourist sites that were a bit less historical/cultural, and a bit more “pop culture”. Waiting by the bus stop wearing an outfit that seemed to match the colors of London’s streets and buildings. Brown, red and black. When in London, try Pret a Manger....
London April 2012 Part 1
Finally posting the first of my spring vacation entries! Surprisingly managed to take 16 gigabytes worth of RAW pictures every single day when I was in Europe, so it took me a while to pick the best ones out from my folders, and to try to create a proper (and coherent) entry to jumpstart my London and Paris entries off. Based on the title, yes, I am really dividing my stay in London into two...
SM MOA: Polkadots, Stripes, and Then Some
Polkadots and stripes are two of my favorite patterns! They never go out of style, and they’re the perfect twists to seemingly plain and boring outfits. (Mango blazer and wedges, Terranova leggings, Fino Leatherware bag, Marithé + François Girbaud shirt) Hype this look on Lookbook here. [[MORE]] (Thanks to RG Gabunada for taking my pictures!) I just had to get these leggings during my...
(Clothes for the Goddess top and shorts, Chilli Margarita heels, Forever 21 accessories) Hype this look on Lookbook here. [[MORE]] I have a love-hate relationship with jumpers/rompers. They are so incredibly easy to wear and convenient for lazy days , but they’re such a pain when you need to go on bathroom breaks! So I tried to create a romper effect by wearing a mint-colored top...
(Astars top, Oasap leggings, Gurly Glam Shoppe shoes, Chicwish button-down shirt) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Shiny leggings and jacket! If you’re on a budget and you can’t afford to buy all the pretty leather goods in the world, there is always artificial leather. [[MORE]] They’re also generally easier to clean and maintain than real leather, but don’t expect the...
This Is Totally Going In My Blog
(Just G top, Vanilla Breeze shorts, Berry Lush heels) Hype this look on Lookbook here. This is something I’d wear… in an alternate universe. Risked looking like some sort of walking rainbow vomit one day, just because I felt like not dressing up like myself. I wonder if you guys ever feel the same way. Sometimes I even think about creating a tribute entry to some of the local...
SM MOA: Nothing Comes Close
…to shopping in the middle of the year! The gloomy weather and the rainy season can never compete with the craze that comes with the thousands of people who flock to their favorite malls just to find the best shopping deals. We go wild at the sound of “shopping”. And we go wilder at the sound of “sale”. There are no such things as signal #1 or 2 if it means being able...
Everybody knows that I cannot last a week without wearing at least one floral print item. Don’t know where to blame this on, other than my pure love for anything that is dainty! And I guess there is nothing daintier than flowers! (The Seventh Street blazer and pants, Anti-Fashion Manila corset) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Good for us, flowers in fashion come in different sizes,...
