There’s nothing like a gold watch to complete a whole look. I almost never go out without a watch on my wrist nowadays, and I’m thankful that there are watches out there that can serve as *the* statement piece for my outfits.
Obviously, I’m not a fan of piling on accessories or “excessorizing”, and usually just go out with my basic pair of earrings, and a watch of the same metal as my jewelry. The new SHE-4800G-7A watch has genuine SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that are able to compensate for the simplicity of any look. Been wearing it everyday since I got it from the Time Depot store in Shang! It also comes in rose gold and silver, if you’re not a fan of gold. Was originally eyeing the rose gold one, until I realized I don’t have a lot of rose gold jewelry to match it with. Still gorgeous though (photo here)!

Modern fairy look. All I need now are wings!
Le Bunny Bleu currently has their whole S/S 2014 collection on sale. When I went to visit their store in Shang, I didn’t have an excuse not to get these Twiggy flats anymore, especially when I saw the 50% off tag. I’m already psyched for mid-September because I’m honestly more of a F/W kind of girl. Looking forward to a new batch of comfy, stylish, and perfect-for-everyday shoes from one of my favorite shoe brands.
Slightly related story about Le Bunny Bleu shoes - I’ve been watching a K-drama called Master’s Sun recently (thanks to my friends Crissey and Farrah’s recommendation), and noticed a brief cameo of Le Bunny Bleu in one of the episodes, lol. Joo Jоong-won planned Kingdom Mall well!
Le Bunny Bleu Philippines can be found at 5th Floor Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd Floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).
It’s times like these that make me so grateful that I don’t have bangs anymore. I don’t know how I was able to survive the past summers with all that hair on my forehead.
On a related note, this particular updo and earrings combination, albeit unintentionally put together, makes this look a million times more polished than it should be. I could change out of this short dress and into a gown, and it wouldn’t look too weird. Thanks hairspray! I’m starting to find more uses for it.
So in love with this off-shoulder leotard that perfectly matches every item from my extensive skirt collection. The torso length is too long for me, however. I might as well cut the crotch area up and turn it into a regular top. Cue hashtag shorttorsoproblems.
This summer, off shoulder tops are my best bet to not looking too covered-up like I usually do. I’m not entirely averse to wearing things that show a lot of skin - I mean, I definitely wear a lot of short skirts. But balancing them out with conservative tops with long sleeves definitely make me feel more comfortable.
I’m very predictable when it comes to dressing up and doing my make-up. I rarely drastically change my style to the point of no recognition, and when I do, there’s always some sort of template that I follow. I’ve tried and tested this template enough to know what works best for me and my changing moods, and I’m pretty sure most of you have already noticed the slight changes that I do to keep my outfits as classic and elegant as possible.
One of my most favorite techniques to quickly change how I look is by using different colored lipsticks! I’m so obsessed that I feel totally incomplete without them (the same way I can’t go out without earrings on).
We all have our own morning routines, and mine usually end with a lipstick in hand. I only choose what lip color to wear after I’ve finalized my outfit! I am a personal style blogger after all! I’m assuming beauty bloggers would base their outfits on the color of their make-up? (It would be interesting to do a survey among different kinds of bloggers, lol)
Anyhow, the reason why I leave the lip color last is because it’s my way of deciding what kind of vibe I want to exude throughout the day, and because it is so powerful that it can make the simplest outfits look so much dressier than they really are.
It works the opposite way too. Think your outfit is a little fancy? Try a more subdued lip color to balance it out.
Below are some examples of how lipstick colors can complement daily outfits:
(L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Wild Tango)
When beige/nude is too pale, pink is too girly, and red is too intense, go for a coral shade. I particularly love Wild Tango because it has slight pink undertones in it that makes the color super flattering.
(L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Viva Red)
Wearing this bright cherry red color seems to always make people overlook the fact that I’m lazy to accessorize. Count on Viva Red to also give you an instantly sexy look without any skin exposure!
(L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Dewy Beige)
One would expect to wear bright lipstick with neutral outfits, but sometimes I like to keep it simple and understated so as not to look too intimidating or too out of place during the day. Dewy Beige is one of those my-lips-but-better colors that need to be in every girl’s bag! I asked my boyfriend which of these three looks he liked most and he chose this one because it makes me and my lips look friendly (a.k.a. kissable? lol).
Enjoy Valentines Day, everyone! It’s also a pay day weekend so it’s definitely the best time to splurge on these sexy new lipsticks!

Almost forgot about this set of photos from exactly a month ago. I dropped by Belle de Jour's Brew Your Best Year event which was super fun, albeit too short. We were asked to define our short-term and long-term goals within 5 minutes or so, and I pretty much sucked at it because I'm not one to think too far ahead. Life has brought me to where I am now, and I believe I had very little to do with it.
Anyhow, I don’t know why I look different and extra-squinty here. When Rg takes my photos, I somehow end up transforming into another person who just looks like me. Or maybe the other me is myself when I take my own photos and this is the real me. Must stop confusing myself now!
