Sorry I’m not sorry that even my taste in distressed jeans is minimalist. I’m still rather on the fence about ripped boyfriend jeans (I can’t with those that look like they have a million messy rips on them, or those that have giant, gaping holes in weird places!), but here’s one pair that I’m crazy about. They look just like my favorite black pair of skinnies, except with these perfectly-placed slashes near the knees! Not too sloppy but still with that little kick of edginess for a cool, casual look.
Thanks Runway Bandits!
Recently got a skirt that looks so much like my high school uniform. To all the Paulinians out there, your school skirts can still serve as fashion statements even after graduation!
I styled it in two ways - one is nerdy Korean-inspired while the other is more retro-girly Japanese-inspired. I blame my Tokyo trip last March for getting me into mermaid-themed stuff! There were so many seashell earrings and accessories being sold at Shibuya109 while I was there, and it didn’t help that I was able to wear some at my J-Runway shoot (which I’ll blog about this month).
Gingham was still the top trend for spring and summer though, and I could totally see why. I’m actually really happy that gingham’s back because it’s a versatile pattern that isn’t just limited to the current season. It can still be carried over to fall and winter if styled properly. Classic!
The last of my multi-color skater skirt collection! I’m slowly warming up to green nowadays, especially after watching Wicked a few weeks ago. I have no idea why I’ve been disregarding this color for the longest time but better late than never, right?
Also, the black and white plus color accent combination still remains to be classic. Best way how to dress on lazy days.
That rare moment where I’m wearing sneakers! I should put a mark somewhere on my fashion timeline to commemorate the start of my sneaker addiction. This particular pair is only one of my very few patterned shoes so it’s extra special. I usually just go for the usual plain black or white, but all the Tretorn x Florence Broadhurst designs are way too adorable to resist. The ones I’m wearing here have horses on them!
The world is ending. I’m wearing something totally out of character, and I am blogging on time now (not at like, 3 in the morning).
Well, I’ve always admired girls who can dress this way and get away with it so effortlessly (ehem my favorite redhead Tracy)! I mean, I seriously think that I’m bordering trying too hard to dress up like a stereotypical band geek and not wholeheartedly going for the complete Jane Lane from Daria look. With these bouncy, contrived curls? Really now? Who am I kidding?
Staying truthful to my personal style, I did black and white with color accent again! This time is quite different from the usual since I almost never do bright red. The conservative person in me tends to lean towards wine red and burgundy more for their not being too conspicuous and attention-grabbing. I don’t even do intense highlighter neons and print-on-print-on-print-on-print (yeah, I really had to mention it 4 times) so anything that seems loud and bold…? Definitely out of my comfort zone. This kind of red, and tattoo stockings included.
So what made me want to dress up like this for a day? I should say I built an outfit around a watch, instead of adding the watch as a mere accessory. It’s the red watch design that Sunny from SNSD wore in the Tough, Cute, Cool Baby G campaign! Being a fan of SNSD, I knew I had to get my hands on these new watches somehow.
This watch that I wore in the past turned out to be the same design that Yoona modeled. Coincidentally, without prior knowledge about who modeled which, I also got the white and silver Sica design. One of the reasons why Sica is my bias is because I personally love her style and her taste in fashion (dem airport outfits). I was so happy to find out that we have the same watch… *shallow* TT
Anyhow, this particular one that I’m wearing here is my first ever red watch! The red star was too adorable to resist. All my watches are white, for some reason, but this one inspires me to try other colors out.
Time for all us Filipino SONEs to rejoice! Thanks to Time Depot for bringing all the SNSD watches in. <3
It’s all in the details. Red watch and red shorts, and matching card suit prints on my stockings and iPhone case. If you guys are wondering how I got my hands on MURUA all of a sudden, I had my boyfriend get it for me at The One mall when he had some free time in his recent Hong Kong trip. I originally wanted the Hello Kitty one but it was sold out! ;_;
If you follow me on Instagram, you’d know that I have enough cases to last me a lifetime, but I have a soft spot for MURUA iPhone cases because they are très chic AND incredibly durable at the same time. Totally worth all your munnies!
