Modest Stripes

I call this dress my parent-approved dress. My mom and dad both commented on separation occasions how much they liked it, with my mom even asking if she could even get one for herself. I guess all parents want their daughters to dress as modestly as possible. Good thing I’ve always had a very conservative sense of style? We’ve never had any major arguments about the stuff that I wear on a daily basis.

This brings me to the idea that I just might be compensating for my plain sense of style by changing hair color and hair style often. Sounds about feasible!

Suddenly, a bodycon skirt on my blog! It only means that I must really, really like it. 

There are two reasons why I don’t wear a lot of tight skirts (or tight clothes in general). Firstly, they only emphasize my boxy, shapeless body type. Secondly, the only place that shows all the food that I eat is my abdominal area. I usually end up looking a little pregnant every time I wear something tight, and it just looks weird because the rest of my body is relatively petite. There’s also something about the tilt of my pelvis and the arch of my back a.k.a. complex stuff that I don’t want to think about, lol.

Anyhow, I couldn’t resist getting this one because of the glorious desaturated pastel print! The silhouette is sexy yet the print is sweet. Sounds like the best candidate to break the monotony and predictability of my outfits.

Just G: A Shorts Story

Posted on Tuesday, 11 March 2014

I know that summer is finally here when I need to open the aircon at night to get a good night’s sleep. I usually save a lot of electricity around January and February, but I’m pretty sure I’m also the reason why the electricity bills go up from March to May. Oops! I absolutely abhor scorching hot weather so expect me to be in malls or anywhere cold the next few months.

My closet’s pants pile has been disregarded for some time now, because I’m all about showing off legs nowadays. The flexibility of layering tops, jackets and sweaters appeals to me more because it’s usually my torso that’s sensitive to temperature changes! My legs need to breathe. Thank you very much!

Speaking of legs, shorts are the best ways to show them off this season! Just G’s early summer collection showcases different kinds to suit your needs. I wore one top (also from Just G) to prove how their shorts can be styled for various occasions!

The simple, everyday look with a twist. The shorts I’m wearing here are actually printed gym shorts! Who would’ve thought? Sporty elements are still huge this season, and as usual, I like juxtaposing them with girly and more sophisticated items.

The boy/girl look. Lace and florals with slip-ons and snapbacks? Yes please!

The laid-back weekend look. Just throw a sweater over your lace top if it gets chilly! 

I also matched my lipstick with the embroidery on my denim shorts because I’m a little obsessive-compulsive like that.

The girls’ night out look. I love this pair of shorts because underneath the black lace is a colorful floral print! Great day-to-night item to have in your closet this summer.

Online Shopping with Metrobank Prepaid Card

While shopping online is insanely convenient, there are still some people who are extra cautious when it comes to typing out their credit card information on the Internet. There are also a lot of high school and college kids who aren’t allowed by their parents to own credit cards until they’re older, so online shopping won’t be possible until then.

My first credit card back in college was only an extension of my parents’, and I never wanted to use it because 1) I always felt guilty since I wasn’t using my own money 2) My purchases will be reflected on their billing statements so I always had to use it wisely and not excessively. Even if I had enough cash to buy a product online, I would always have to ask permission to use their cards and card information for purchases. (Although I admit it was good training on my parents’ part because I learned to be responsible for my expenses.)

Now that I’m older, with my own bank account and credit card for personal use, the possibilities of online shopping are suddenly endless. It’s both good and bad that I now shop online more often than I do actual shopping in malls.

Listing the perks of online shopping will probably take me forever, but what I love most about it is that I can buy products that can’t be found here in the Philippines! On the other hand, the thing I hate about it most is that it’s so easy to buy things. It will really force you to practice self-discipline when it comes to spending. More often than not, I lose to self-discipline. 

This is why prepaid cards are needed to monitor expenses! The Metrobank prepaid card has all the advantages of a debit card and the perks of a credit card,  but with safer features. It is not connected to a bank account, so you won’t have to worry about anyone accessing your information through hacking, etc.

I got my own card a few weeks ago, and I’m so happy as it was so easy to use! No maintaining balance and initial deposit required. I just had to visit a Metrobank branch, fill out the prepaid card application form, present a valid ID, and pay P100 for the card. 

YesStyle

I tested it out on Yesstyle because they always ship straight to my doorstep (no need for customs / post office shenanigans) and they sell a lot of items that aren’t available in the country. Crissey got her own card and used it on Yesstyle too!

Recently, Korean fashion and beauty have been growing on me, and Yesstyle offers a lot of Korean brands that fit the particular look that I like. 

Metrobank Prepaid Card

There’s going to be a huge retro style and gingham print boom in the next couple of months, so I bought this dress in preparation. The fact that it also resembles my high school uniform also made me want to buy it asap!

Metrobank Prepaid Card

Yesstyle also sells 3CE / 3 CONCEPT EYES which is quite hard to find in the Philippines. And legitimate GEO contact lenses for those who are afraid of buying contact lenses from random Facebook stores.

I used 3CE Gimme More jumbo lip crayon and GEO 3 tone brown for this look! My nail polish is also 3CE! 

Metrobank

A little OT, but I missed wearing socks in my OOTDs! Thanks Emilio Cavallini for rekindling my love for socks with this pair that you sent straight from Italy!

Metrobank

Time to live without regrets with the Metrobank prepaid card. Here’s your worry-free access to that lifestyle upgrade you’ve always wanted! Other than access to online shopping, the prepaid card can also be used for normal dining and shopping transactions. Some partner establishments that give you extra perks when you use your Metrobank prepaid card include Chelsea, Cole Haan, Hyve, Kabila, M Cafe, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu, Momo, Mr Jones, Perry Ellis, Rocketroom, Sip & Gogh, Skye, Stella, Terraz and Vyne (with many more to come).

School Girl

I still had to have the t-shirt version of this London School of Sorcery print even if I already have the cropped pullover version. With the news of J.K. Rowling regretting Hermione x Ron out, I can’t help but feel nostalgic about Harry Potter again. I really wanted to be Hermione and Ron to be together from the start (there was chemistry despite being opposites) so I’m definitely one of those butthurt fans that just had their perfect OTP dreams ruined. Or not. It’s not like the author can rewrite the books again, lol. Touch-move!

Who is your Harry Potter OTP?

Jeepers, Creepers

First time in a long time to wear creepers, and I’m still a little on the fence about them. I often see Luanna from Lookbook rocking them so naturally, pairing them with her effortless punk, grudge style that I could only wish to pull off. I do love that they give a much-appreciated height boost without sacrificing on comfort and that the thick soles make them perfect for cold weather dressing, but I still prefer sleeker, more sophisticated footwear that can give my legs a more svelte silhouette. 

Anyhow, one day, I just thought it would be cute to wear a more cutesy, not-so-badass outfit with these shoes. Of course, there had to be cats involved.
