Ultra cute and sparkly Christmas flats? Count me in! More often than not, I’d rather accessorize with sewn-in bling rather than pile a ton of accessories on top of each other. I always try my best to look as chic as possible using the least number of items. Seems like age has really turned me into a practical dresser!
I opted for Le Bunny Bleu’s Sina flats to a whole day of errands and meetings, and to a night out with Rg as we celebrated our 3rd anniversary together! The lack of heels make it casual enough for daytime use, while the presence of embellishments make it dressy enough for a date. If you’re looking for the perfect sophisticute (sophisticated and cute) pair of flats for everyday use, this is it! It also comes in brown/beige if you prefer something lighter that can also suit your spring/summer wardrobe.
There is an on-going sale for those who want first dibs on stocks and sizes (best to go today before people go crazy), but starting tomorrow, January 27, the entire fall/winter collection (examples here) will be 50% off!
This includes all their flats (including the ones I’m wearing here), sneakers, and boots. Time to stock up on these romantic vintage shoes that many K-pop stars love (examples here)! Totally eyeing the Viola loafers, thanks to a photo of a Crayon Pop member wearing them, so I’ll definitely drop by the store during the sale! See you there!
Visit them at 5th floor Bridgeway, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).
Ever since I dyed my hair back to brown, I’ve been dressing a little less edgy and a little more vanilla… which I think defines my style a bit more accurately. Glad to be back.
Loved my blue Sailor Moon skirt? I have it in magenta as well! Couldn’t get enough of it so I ordered it in red and green yesterday, lol. I can never have too many of these bright A-line skirts in my closet, especially now that we’re months away from spring. Someone is clearly excited.
I missed a sponsored trip to Switzerland last week because my trip to Taiwan made the visa processing time too tight. I couldn’t really do anything as I really enjoyed my Taiwan trip and wouldn’t trade it for the world, so there’s no use sulking about missed opportunities. It only means that there’s a better time for me to go to Switzerland!
Nothing’s confirmed yet, but I’m eyeing to fly to Tokyo again to visit friends and enjoy cherry blossom season. And some time in May, I think I’ll be going to the US (Las Vegas and San Francisco?) with my family to visit my brother Calel. This is my motivation to finish all my pending New York, Boston and LA travel diaries or else I’m going to have a very hard time! Where are you guys going for spring/summer break?
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!
Merry Christmas everybody!
This was my simple and casual outfit to lunch the day before Christmas, and to macarons and coffee with my boyfriend on Christmas Eve. I changed to something dressier for mass and Christmas salubong, but that’s another story.
Since my ama/grandma is living with us, we usually hold all our celebrations with my Chinese side of the family at our house. I’m usually bitten by the too-lazy-to-dress-up-because-I’m-just-in-the-house bug whenever these Chinese-side gatherings happen, but I made sure to at least wear heels and not my house slippers when I went out of the house for a short date with Rg.
It was also the perfect day to wear my new Baby-G watch which was Time Depot’s Christmas gift to me! I love the translucent quality to it! It doesn’t have that usual plastic and rubber feel that most of my Baby-G watches have, making it quite a unique watch that all you Baby-G collectors must add to your collections.
For inquiries, kindly email firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow Time Depot on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to know more about their selection of products and to be updated with their promos and giveaways.
If you buy a Casio Sheen watch at Time Depot any time before the end of the month, you can get a free copy of my #TriciaGosingtianStyleBook!
I can’t be any more cliche than this. Only 4 days left before Christmas and I can’t help but inject some red into my monochromatic wardrobe. It’s such a festive color!
All of these outfits feature EMODA items, which makes me wonder if I have too many EMODA in my closet, lol. Besides shopping in Japan and HK, I’m also always ordering from their global webstore. They just started their End of Season Sale yesterday, and I was able to get some items that were 70% off!
I keep promising myself to not shop for anything before my Taiwan trip in January, but I can’t keep still when there are all sorts of good deals around me!
(1 - EMODA top, Chicwish blazer, Esperanza boots, 2 - Sheinside top and sweater, Kate Spade bag, Coach heels, 3 - Zara top, Forever 21 blazer, Coach bag, Charlotte Russe heels, 4 - EMODA top, necklace and cardigan, FashionCookie ShoeAvenue heels, 5 - Hot Mess top)
We all know that denim never goes out of style, which is exactly why it was top of mind when I started listing down items for my book, 150 Style Essentials For Every Girl. I don’t think there’s any place in the world where nobody is wearing denim, and this is only testament to how important and versatile it is for everybody, fashion-conscious or not!
I started my interest in denim when I was in 6th grade, when I asked my mom, for the very first time, to buy me a pair of elephant pants because it was all the rage among my friends then. Thank God OOTDs weren’t invented yet because I was such a fashion victim, lol. I continued to wear them as I transitioned to high school, until I outgrew pants in general and instead turned to shorts and skirts.
But there was never a time when I had zero denim in my closet. I always had a pair or two until I was able to afford getting my own clothes and choose the styles that I liked. Eventually, I learned that skinny jeans suited my body type best, and got them in different denim washes, this classic, dark blue wash included. I have friends who prefer lighter washes, loose/baggy styles, or ones that come with a few rips here and there, but they’re denim all the same!
Speaking of denim…
