Cut It Out

Posted on Friday, 7 June 2013

It’s another season of cut-outs, and I am so in. Well, it’s been around for a long time, but I couldn’t really push myself to go completely out of my comfort zone with waist-baring, back-revealing ones that will compromise my usually-conservative style. I find that there are more options for cut-outs now, and my favorite kind would be the ones that show off the neck and shoulders. 

Here are three outfits that clearly show my growing obsession for cut-out details. They range from subtle to something more obvious, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more creative cut-out placements in the future.

Pardon the overuse of girly skater skirts for these looks. This formula has become some sort of uniform for me recently!

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…

Denim and Florals

Another one of my cliche spring/summer combinations. Denim and floral prints are two separate spring/summer staples, and pairing them together create a very pleasant contrast between sweet and edgy. 

I’ve had these denim shorts since about 2007, and thank goodness they still fit me! TBH, I was quite afraid to try them on after so long, thinking that I may have gained weight since then. But genetics has been very kind to me and my siblings - most of our items from way, way back still fit us until now. Phew! Saves us a lot of time and effort buying bigger or smaller sizes. Thanks mom and dad! We’re all dreading that moment when gravity and age finally decide to take their toll on us! T_T

On a related note, I finally got a perfect-fitting floral bomber jacket! It’s not too thick so I can wear it often without sweating like mad. Fast forward to next week, please? Looking forward to spring weather in Japan!

AHH! The quest for the perfect checkered leggings is finally over. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I get really obsessive-compulsive about patterns. High standards, maybe, or I’m just a little sensitive to what I like to see and wear. Some checkered leggings I’ve seen have squares that are too big, or have too contrasting colors. This, one, however… <3

I paired it with a top with cut-out shoulders, and holes that remind me of the ones that you cut out of giant posters and tarpaulins so that air can pass through. Err, yeah. I have the most unglamorous stuff in my head sometimes.

It’s wine red season again, and I went all matchy-matchy with my bag and shoes. These heels are my first pair in this color, and I wear them all the time now! It’s a classy shade of red that’s not too bright and bold. Now available in Schu Trinoma and Rockwell. 

Unconventional Geek

Reduce me to my bare essentials and I assure you that my inner geek will come out. Before this whole blogging thing happened, I spent most of my high school and college time in front of the computer geeking out on pop culture on the Internet, creating graphic and web layouts, watching anime and reading manga as my primary form of relieving stress and passing time, and of course, spending every minute with a camera on my hand. I enjoyed fashion but didn’t let it dictate my life. I liked dressing up once in a while, but didn’t mind wearing my brothers’ oversized shirts to school. And curling irons and circle lenses were once non-existent in my life… *gasp* 

Recently, I’ve been going back to these roots in a lot of ways. For one, I dyed my hair back to the same color I had back about 3 years ago. Quite a bold move as I’ve been blonde for a really long time now. I’ve grown sick of being blonde for so long that I don’t even want to look at my old blonde wigs and hair extensions. This is coming from the same person who has always dreamt of going blonde since she was a little girl. Fickle-minded me!

This season, I’m also watching and reading a number of anime and manga again! There was a point in my life (probably around the time I stopped going to cosplay conventions) when I just wanted to spend my free time doing other things. My 3 brothers have constantly lived up to their otaku-ness since Day 1, so it was easy for me to get back into the habit. I’m hooked on Sukitte Iinayo, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Kamisama Hajimemashita, Zetsuen no Tempest, K and PSYCHO PASS. I also just finished watching Uta no Prince-sama, Kokoro Connect, Chōyaku Hyakunin isshu: Uta Koi, and Kuroko no Basket. Yeah, you can sue me for loving mostly shoujo and josei stuff, but if it matters, I’m still reading Blade of the Immortal (at least).

Most of the things I’m doing now take a lot from my old self… not that I liked my old self better. I’ll never trade my present self for anything else. To be honest, it’s very easy to lose yourself with all the things happening around you, especially if the community that you are in is one that requires you to show a public face. Some people try to create a different persona to suit their audience, and I could totally understand why’d they want to do that. Perhaps they want to preserve the little privacy that is still left with them? Perhaps they’re only protecting their “real selves” in the process? We’ll never really know. All I know is that it seems difficult, especially if you created something that’s *too* different from who you really are.

I’m not totally innocent. I’ve also had my fair share of moments when wanted to appear a certain way to other people. At one point I wanted to fit in and be the type who would tote designer bags and know everything about fashion by heart. Of course, I fail, because I’m too awkward for my own good, and I’m the kind of immensely introverted geek who cannot act to save her own life, more so pretend to be a know-it-all in the realm of fashion. In the end, I guess I’m stuck with presenting my 100% real self by default! Let’s just talk about things we can all easily relate to, shall we?

This is one of my displays of intense optimism, lol. Failures aren’t all that bad. They actually teach us to become better people, and sometimes, they even save you from becoming someone that you shouldn’t be. :)

Time for Printed Bottoms

Posted on Monday, 25 June 2012

I am obsessed with printed bottoms! Where have they been hiding all my life? I would’ve worn these all throughout college if I only got my hands (or legs) on them back then. 

What’s wonderful about printed bottoms is that they debunk the whole notion of anything that covers the legs being conservative and boring. Finally, gone are the days when one would automatically resist anything that has to do with anti-shorts/skirts dress codes (usually in churches and universities) since that would mean being limited to jeans. So what if you’re limited to covering your legs? Leggings and pants have now become statements on their own, and not just that “plain and neutral” thing that you pair with your favorite blouse, shoes or designer bag. 

Here are some of my recent looks featuring printed bottoms! At first I was intimidated by the thought of covering my legs with all these busy prints, but I figured that as long as you focus on one key element in your outfit, these are godsend.

For this look, I wore black and silver to make the pink and purple color of my pants stand out. In general, neutrals are the safest to pair with printed bottoms since they’re a sure way to avoid looking too overwhelming. All eyes will automatically be directed to your pants!

For this look, I took into consideration the colors of the flowers on my leggings to decide what color top I should wear. This is my foolproof way of making an outfit look coherent. This look would’ve also worked if I wore yellow or plum.

For this look, I paired my black and white pants with another black and white top so the colors of the shoes and bag will stand out. You know how the color accent option in cameras work? They focus on one or two colors, and make the rest of the picture black, gray and white.

Yes, I just did a photography reference on a personal style/fashion post. This is how geeky I can get.
