Been really itching to post this, but first had to get a go signal before I could properly share this in public. The first photo may already be familiar if you’ve been following me on Twitter, as I once used it as my Twitter profile pic. Oops! Talk about being impatient!
Some time ago, I did a shoot with Time Depot and Casio as an endorser of sorts, particularly for their retro/vintage watches. The sudden craze for these watches started last year, but it is definitely not going to disappear any time soon. I keep on repeating in my posts that fashion people are on a ’90s fashion comeback high, and this watch series definitely fits the bill if you want a stylish watch to go with this season’s trends.
And where’s a better place to buy these watches than from Time Depot, the official distributor of Casio in the Philippines? Their watches are priced lower than online sellers, are 100% legit and brand new, and most importantly, have warranties!
I can wear my vintage Casio watches with literally almost EVERYTHING. They are versatile enough to suit different styles such as edgy-street, flirty/girly-fun, and even simple-classic. There are silver ones and other colors but the gold ones are most recommended. Personally, it’s because they’re incredibly easy to match with gold jewelry and all sorts of arm candy.
Say hello to my new ombre hair! Or not. Last week, I managed to fool a lot of people into thinking I finally got to fulfill my Jem and the Holograms / My Little Pony / Lisa Frank dream hair. Little did they know that this is all just Photoshop! It’s really easy to edit your hair when it’s blonde, so do expect more of these in the future, just for fun!
Here’s another one of my black and yellow outfits. Really a classic combination that can never do any wrong. This was inspired by bees, obviously! Complete with the big bug eyes in the form of giant Lady Gaga-ish sunnies!
In other news, I’m totally hooked on this new anime called Kids On The Slope. Must watch!
Inspired by my recent obsession on MACARONS! These are the colors of the vanilla and lemon ones I got to try in different macaron stores in Paris.
I could live in this sweater. So warm and fuzzy and perfect for chilly days that are not only limited to winter. While it might seem weird that I’m wearing knits during summer, it’s not a totally off idea to wear them when you have to stay in an airconditioned room the whole day. How’s that for utilizing every single item in your closet without being enslaved by seasons!
Ahh, my roots are already showing! :(
Anyhow, these are actually shorts, so I definitely did not flash anyone in this outfit! Still in love with these kinds of bottoms, which I pair with pretty much anything under the sun - loose tees, button-downs, and sweaters.
To finish it all off, what’s a lace outfit entry without my favorite flower accent and socks-with-heels combination? I really missed dressing up like this after so many MODE and Momoko-inspired days when all I wore were black and white, leather and denim.
(All from Forever 21) Hype this look on Lookbook here.
Super late post, but here’s what I wore to the Forever 21 SM City The Block launch last April 18. This is probably one of my favorite all-Forever 21 outfits to date, since it’s so incredibly me and my personal style.
Such a comfortable outfit too - loose and light just the way I like it. I don’t think I can ever outgrow oversized knits!
I swear I spazzed when I saw this skirt on the racks! I didn’t think I could find the most perfect mullet/high-low skirt for myself until I saw this white and pink floral-printed one that’s just the right amount of sexy and cute.
The shoes are a really good find too! P1995 for Jeffrey Campbell-looking platform boots. What a steal. I guess it was my lucky shopping day!
Below are a few photos of myself and the other Forever 21 brand ambassadors during the opening:
Me, standing awkwardly on stage. I can’t function properly in front of a lot of people. It’s a good photo of how my outfit looks from the side/back though! :)
So here’s a better photo so you can all marvel at her pretty face and wonderful, sophisticated sense of style! We both had a conversation backstage about our past experiences as Forever 21 brand ambassadors, how she, David and I are the only ones left from the original group, and how much we miss everyone else who shared the same journey at one point of our lives. Can’t believe it’s already been two years since it all happened!
And the Forever 21 craze still lives. So thankful.

It’s not always about baring skin this summer. It’s still possible to cover up and be a little conservative without having to compromise comfort. Skirts like the one I’m wearing here are built for exactly this, I think.
A mini and a maxi in one - how completely convenient can you get? My love for these kinds of skirts can equal my love for mullet skirts nowadays. Countries with tropical weather like ours benefit the most with these innovations, really! <3
Hope everyone’s been enjoying their week so far. By the time this gets posted, I’m probably freezing my butt off somewhere in London where the weather’s been predicted to be quite horrible these days…
Still, there’s nothing quite like a collared button down to instantly make you look more polished than usual. This particular one I love because it came in my most favorite shade of lavender. Plus the sleeves are so interesting, but not too overwhelmingly loud for my taste.
And envelope clutches! Oh, where do I start with these? Sometimes they can really pass off as the kind that you bring to school and such, but I guess that’s exactly the charm?
P.S. I’m in London now. Queued some posts while I was still in Manila. :)
I can’t believe I’ve been blogging about Just G for a year now. <3
When I run out of ideas on what to wear, I try to look back and browse through my older Lookbook entries. I don’t exactly do this to easily replicate what I’ve worn before, but I do this because mixing different outfits that I’ve worn in the past can somehow produce interesting results.
So in love with these shoes! I’ve always been on the lookout for the perfect pastel pink heels, and these ones were pretty much a gift from heaven. I wish these also came in other pastel colors like powder blue or a light lavender shade. <3
Finished my outfit with an eye-catching mustard bag that matches some of the yellows on my skirt.
Pastels and bright colors can actually go well together! This was an experiment that I did recently, and I’m so glad it didn’t turn out super weird. I balanced my pastel shoes off with a pastel pink headband, while keeping the other items rather bright and high-contrast.
