MOFW 2012 Australia Day 6
(Portmans cardigan, Bardot clutch, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue boots, Forever 21 top and skirt) Hype this look on Lookbook here. New hair color! I opted for a much darker shade this time, since the bleach (from a long time ago) would just refuse to die even after I’ve dyed it brown so many times already. Hopefully it doesn’t fade to blonde again. How do you like it? NGL, I camwhored a...
MOFW 2012 Australia Day 5
(Forever New parka, Romwe embellished top, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue wedges, Fashion Republic leggings) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Day 5 of My Own Fashion Week features Forever New, or Ever New, as we know it here in Manila. I swear it is high up my charts now when it comes to go-to places for quality fashion, and I couldn’t be happier to know that we don’t need to travel all...
MOFW 2012 Australia Day 4
(Both from Globalize The Cassette Society sweater and Living Doll skirt, Bagfull bag, Vishoes wedges) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Lightning sweater and shiny pleated skirt for My Own Fashion Week Day 4. Both these items are from a store called Globalize, also known as Australia’s hottest youth retailer!

MOFW 2012 Australia Day 3
(Sportsgirl sweater, Zara skirt, Forever 21 bag, Cheap Fashion Finds necklace) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Third day into My Own Fashion Week and I decided to wear a peach sweater from Sportsgirl, another one of Australia’s great retail brands. The thing I love most about this sweater, apart from the cute color, is the extra long sleeve design. If I don’t wear this sweater...
MOFW 2012 Australia Day 2
(Bardot floral gradient top, Romwe jacket and pants, S&H heels, Dazzled Bags satchel) Hype this look on Lookbook here. When I went to Melbourne, I wanted to go crazy at Bardot. Someone bring it to Manila! All their items scream sass and sophistication. As soon as I laid my eyes on this gradient top, I knew I had to have it! If my mom wasn’t around to stop me, I would’ve also...
MOFW 2012 Australia Day 1
(Aje top, Tracyeinny skirt, Dazzled Bags satchel, CMG wedges) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Welcome to another round of My Own Fashion Week! This time, I’ll be having an Australian edition where I incorporate Australian brands and items from my recent Melbourne trip to my daily personal style entries. It’s the first day and I’m cheating already, by posting an old look...
Melbourne September 2012
Melbourne is most-known to be the fashion capital of Australia, and more importantly, the holder of the title of “world’s most livable city”. I personally immediately associate Melbourne with two things. One would be, of course, TRAMS! The second would be Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, which I sadly missed by a few days. Now that I’ve been able to experience the city and...
Just G: Sunday Dress
(Just G dress, Charriol St. Tropez watch, Forever 21 necklace, Asianvogue wedges, Bagfull bag, Mia Casa bracelet) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Thanks RG for taking my pictures! Sundays always call for dainty dresses in bright, happy colors! This particular dress came in my favorite color, but I wish it came in other colors because of its classic design and fit. I wear it with a preppy...
Karl for Shu, K-Palette, Fairydrops Haul
It’s been a while since I last did a beauty post. I am quite inspired to take a break from posting a personal style entry today because I finally got to meet some of the country’s top beauty bloggers yesterday, and their blogs (which I have encountered at least once in my life for their immensely useful reviews) totally motivated me to add more of these entries in my own blog....
Geometry in Fashion
(Fantasia top, Stylista Inc. skirt, Forever 21 heels, Time Depot Baby G watch, Bayo belt) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Zigzags are such interesting prints! They never occur to me as something as classic as, say, polkadots or stripes, but I love them all the same. Was never good at geometry, but geometric zigzag patterns in the fashion context give me hope. They actually look a bit like...

Now available at the new Apartment 8 online store, 1st and 3rd floor Greenhills Shoppesville Arcade, The Ramp Crossings – Glorietta, TriNoma and Shangri-La, Robinsons Galleria Dept. Store, and Pop Culture, Alabang Town Center.
Baby G: Red Riot
(Time Depot Baby G watch, Bayo shorts, Mexy top, jacket and stockings, MURUA iPhone case, DKNY boots) Hype this look on Lookbook here. The world is ending. I’m wearing something totally out of character, and I am blogging on time now (not at like, 3 in the morning). Well, I’ve always admired girls who can dress this way and get away with it so effortlessly (ehem my favorite...
Dark Florals and Army Green
(EMODA top, Choies jacket, Romwe pants, Kate Spade bag, Charriol St Tropez Infinte Summer watch, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue wedges) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Recently, every day has been like a “What do I pair with florals this time?” challenge! Today I wore them with this military-inspired jacket, which is slowly climbing the charts when it comes to my favorite pieces of...
Apartment 8: Floral Fantasy
(Apartment 8 blazer-trouser set, S&H heels, Salvatore Ferragamo bag, Bayo glasses) Hype this look on Lookbook here. I’ve been dreaming about owning a black and white blazer-trouser set for the longest time now, and I’ve finally found the perfect one. I love the floral print overload, which is totes Spring/Summer, and the fact that the print is all dark and ethereal, perfect for...
Bayo: Chic Office Style
(BAYO top, skirt and cuff, shopAKIRA jacket, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue heels, Louis Vuitton bag) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Thanks to my brother Calel for the photos. On a normal day, I would always wear black and white with one color accent. Most of you have probably noticed that blue is totally becoming my color of the season, so I recently stocked up on all sorts of outerwear in...
MOFW 2012 Singapore Day 6
(EVE top, JOOP cardigan, Sheinside skirt, Comfit shoes, Topshop bag) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Oops, you can totally see my remote control in this picture…! Day 6 features this girly outfit that makes use of gray and black. Gray top and leatherette skirt? Sounds very badass and rocker to me! Girly doesn’t always have to be pink and creamy all the time in my book. Sometimes...
MOFW 2012 Singapore Day 5
(Tattle Tuesdays top and skirt, Choies shoes, ClubCouture cuff) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Friday cheat day! I actually posted this some time ago, but I really waited for MOFW Singapore before I decided to blog about it. Tattle Tuesdays is another Singaporean blogshop that I absolutely love for their taste in classy pieces and sophisticated twist to basics, so I totally needed to include...
MOFW 2012 Singapore Day 4
(Ellysage shorts, Tracyeinny top and blazer) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Subtle print-on-print on the 4th day of My Own Fashion Week, Singapore Edition! These shorts from Ellysage are quite a huge statement. The loud tropical print is quite unlike me, but I love it for being the first of its kind in my closet of black and white. Since I don’t think loud print-on-loud print trend...
MOFW 2012 Singapore Day 3
(Kristine’s Collection blazer, Tracyeinny top) Hype this look on Lookbook here. On the third day of MOFW, I decided to wear two things that I love - the color blue and outerwear. I’m one of those weird people who gravitate towards any kind of outerwear when in the midst of clothing. The temperature in this part of the world never becomes cold enough for coats to be acceptable and...
MOFW 2012 Singapore Day 2
(My Spring Fling dress, Zara heels) Hype this look on Lookbook here. “My Own Fashion Week” continues on its second day with a classic little black dress from My Spring Fling. The embellishments on the shoulders are a good alternative to neck jewelry, if you feel like only wearing arm candies for a cocktail event or a hot date! It’s so easy to go over-the-top given the...
