Matchsticks on my top! And I’m literally little because without my heels, I’m only 5’3”. I always get “I thought you were model height!” kind of comments when I meet people in person for the first time. Thanks to proper posing and angles for this false-but-popular belief! And I guess I also have to credit my odd proportions and body type.

Last week, Crissey and I discovered (after 8 years of friendship, lol) that we are about the same height when sitting down, even if she is barely 5 feet tall. I only noticed it when we took some photos together recently. The best Trissey selfies happen when we’re sitting down. When we’re standing, the height difference is a lot more obvious! Discovery of the century! 

Anyhow, life hacks to make it seem like you have legs for days? They exist, and they can help you even if you’re not wearing sky-high heels.

One way is to tiptoe instead of just standing flatly on the ground. Lots of personal style bloggers do this to look more graceful and to avoid looking stumpy. Another way is to plant your foot in front of the other. This is the most effective height-boosting pose for me! It also gives you the illusion of hips if you don’t have any (like me).

Try these out and let me know if these techniques work for you!

Le Bunny Bleu: Sweet Spring

Statement on my top aside, here’s a sweet spring/summer outfit that I wore to a weekend out with my family. I’ve been favoring flat shoes or low heels recently, and I think it’s all because of Le Bunny Bleu’s influence. Their S/S 14 collection is perfect in every way - I had the hardest time choosing what to pick because I had about 5 different pairs that I really wanted to add to my shoe collection. 

Ultimately, I chose this pair of oxfords in white, even though the black version was the first one to catch my eye. I have way too many black shoes already, and I believe that white shoes are going to be very trendy in the next couple of months. While most people aim to have abs this summer, I aim to simply lessen the amount of black I wear on a daily basis, lol.

My 2nd choice from the collection was a pair of pastel pink oxfords. Now that I think about it, I should’ve already bought it when I was in the store last week. When you buy 2 pairs from the S/S 14 collection, you can get a free Le Bunny Bleu stuffed toy! 

They also launched a new LeBunny Bleu Lovers Discount Card! Customers who purchase any amount in the store will be given a stamp card. Each stamp card has 20 stamps (P500 value each with a total value of P10,000) which must be completed within 1 year.

Once you complete it, the card can guarantee a lifetime discount of 10% for cash and 5% off for credit card purchases. Exclusive promotions and sneak peek of new collections will also be granted to holders of the card. 

As an added bonus, the first 10 who will get a card will also receive a special LeBunny Bleu Manila canvas tote.

Visit them at 5th floor Bridgeway, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).

Le Bunny Bleu: Dazzling Dream (+ F/W Collection Sale)

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!

Le Bunny Bleu F/W 2013 + Crissey Collaboration

Posted on Friday, 22 November 2013

Sharing the newest F/W collection of Le Bunny Bleu because it is absolute shoe porn! As I often mention, I’m generally biased towards F/W collections, and this one is not an exception. The amount of holiday colors in this collection is making my fangirl heart beat so fast! 

Everything is classy and perfect for everyday use, and you can even own a limited edition Winter Notebook with Crissey's work on the cover if you buy a pair any time soon. Her signature cutesy illustrations are also all over the stores so it makes shopping in Le Bunny Bleu even more enjoyable. Proud BFF moment! I'm Crissey's #1 fan… but you guys all know that already! <3

You can choose which cover to get if you buy a pair from the latest collection. My (obvious) favorite would have to be the girl with roses on her hair! Which Le Bunny Bleu girl is your favorite?

Cheetah Print Flats

(Yesstyle top, iAnyWear skirt, Tory Burch flats, Kate Spade bag) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Thanks Tracy for helping me with these pics!

Quick post! I’m here in Kyoto, relaxing after a long (but good) tour day. I hope everything’s been just as good back in Manila! Though I’m pretty sure it’s even better, since I just found out a few minutes ago that all my friends and my boyfriend are going out tonight without me! Ahh, if only teleportation existed!

Anyhow, before flying out to Japan, I was swamped with a lot of work and errands and couldn’t really prioritize my personal style as much as I wanted to! Took a break from heels and opted for statement flats from last season’s Tory Burch. Recently, I’ve been trying my best to revive all the unused flats because I’ve been giving my heels way too much attention in comparison. By the time I get back from Japan though, my flats will probably appeal to me more as I’ll need to rest my feet from all the walking! It has only been 3 days and I feel as if my legs can fall off any minute now…
