Nowadays, I’m all about the girl-next-door look! Gone are the days when I try so hard to look edgy and trendy, because at the end of the day, I still generally prefer sticking to what’s comfortable, easy-to-wear, and friendly on the eyes. And Just G has always been around to make fashion friendlier for us simple, no-fuss girls! They just happened to released new sale items that are 50% off until August 3 so don’t forget to check out their boutiques and department store corners.
One material that’s sure to be part of Just G’s collection is lace. I often see it on their tees, denim shorts, jackets, and accessories, but now they finally released it in the perfect skirt form! I can’t be any happier since I’ve been trying to consciously veer away from wearing my favorite A-line skirts everyday (It’s been very difficult - I’m already having withdrawal symptoms, lol).
Naturally, I paired it with a light denim jacket since I believe combining lace and denim together always makes for a classic, girly outfit. What do *you* usually pair with lace?
The Just G Warehouse Sale is still ongoing at Warehouse 23, Armal Compound 2, M. Eusebio Ave., San Miguel, Pasig City. Mondays to Saturdays, except Holidays and Sundays, 8:00am to 4:00pm. They’ll only accept cash, btw! Make sure you bring enough!

I’m pretty sure we’ll see more checkered patterns next season, but I’m certainly not wearing them just because they’re currently trendy. My mom has always had a penchant for plaids and checkers, and I’m certain that she passed it on to me. Every time we’d go shopping together, she’d automatically go to either the section where all the black are, or to the section where all the plaids and checkers are. I found myself developing the same habit throughout the years.
I’ve also been very partial to sharp angles and straight lines, etc. (as mentioned here) so this pattern is expected of me and my style. Crissey is the exact opposite - she is drawn to curved lines, and this clearly reflects on her drawing style, as well as on some of her fashion choices. In a way, I guess we are what we wear.
Speaking of Crissey, fate brought us together last Sunday when we coincidentally went to the same store in the same mall at the same time. Neither of us knew each other’s whereabouts so we totally freaked out at what happened. That night, we talked about horror movies (she loves to scare herself, and I also get curious, lol) until we fell asleep. I woke up at exactly 3 AM after an immensely strange dream where I saw Crissey die as she fell into a large gap while we were going down the escalator. In an attempt to find her body, I looked down the gap only to find it pitch black. After a few minutes of mourning because I didn’t know what to do and I really thought she was gone forever, Crissey miraculously found her way back up and immediately told me, in her usual cheery tone, that she fell 21 stories… and that “OMG, Greenhills pala yung nasa baba!" I was dying (lol) of laughter when I relayed the story to my brother. That punchline I can’t even.
Also, I should mention that in my dream, while we were going down the escalator, Crissey was holding a giant squash and a broom. Stop haunting my dreams, witch (of course, the moe magical girl type) Crissey!
It’s time to rejoice! Apartment 8 will be releasing these feminine fit and flare dresses soon, and I can’t be any happier because this is pretty much my favorite dress silhouette of all time.
This style has been popular since the 50s, and fortunately, it never really completely disappeared through the years. This spring/summer, however, it seems like people have fallen in love with it all over again. You can’t blame anyone - fit and flare dresses are classic, versatile, and immensely flattering.
If there’s one dress style that can do no wrong, this is it. Pair with heels, flats, and even sneakers! <3
The little white dress. Looks super innocent… until you see the back!
Obsessed with all of Apartment 8’s new embossed fabric!
Such a wonderful contrast! The dainty bow and the surprising backless detail together? The perfect mix of cute and sexy.
I can’t even start talking about this top. I have to have it in all colors possible! For girls with small shoulders like me, this is seriously the best style to show them off. The high neckline and the cuffed sleeves make it all the more perfect. Striking a balance between sweet and sexy is difficult, and this top pulls it off so well by providing peekaboo cutouts in the right places.
Somehow, before I knew it, I found myself going back to this sweet style again. I blame it on the major life changes that has been happening recently. Let’s just say that it involves a lot of ties being cut off, both in physical and emotional aspects. Because I can’t go on sulking forever, I’ve just learned to accept these things that I can’t change and have no control over. Praying about them every night keeps me sane.
Anyhow, speaking of going back to sweet style, I’m quite proud that this has zero black or white in it. Huzzah! I missed this so much. Apartment 8’s Blair is back with a new look, and no, it’s not about this wig that people think is my real hair, or my newly revamped pre-summer layout. XOXO
Here’s something fairly simple and light, in anticipation of spring and summer. It recently turned February and it’s only a matter of time before stores here in Manila pull out all their dark, rich colors and replace them cutesy pastels and florals.
I’m a little particular about the kinds of pinks that I get for myself, since I don’t find all pinks suitable for my taste and personality. This pink, however, is so incredibly perfect that I just had to temporarily ditch my ongoing black-and-white (with oxblood) streak. Let’s see if I can continue wearing lighter colors after this!
Recently I also splurged on some spring make-up from MAC and Etude House (OMG, non-Japanese brand make-up for a change!) Hopefully I can blog about my purchases tomorrow or Wednesday. Super happy with all of them so far. <3
