Styled this outfit to match my limited edition SNSD x Sheen watch that even comes with a special box! Definitely a must-have for K-pop fans and Korean fashion enthusiasts!
This was so timely (sorry I’m not sorry) because I’ve been obsessing over You Who Came From The Stars / My Love From The Star recently! Jun Ji Hyun has such elegant style in the series, and I love how her accessories are always on point. I just finished the last episode last night, and I’m still bawling like a baby.
Since I like to keep my accessories at a minimum, watches never fail to save the day whenever I feel my wrists are too bare. Instead of stacking so many accessories to create crazy arm parties, I prefer just sticking to one or two functional pieces that can speak volumes on their own. This shimmery, shiny Sheen watch from Casio does the job so well.

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!
Relaxed weekend outfit. I haven’t worn dresses like this in a long time! Now that it’s officially summer in Manila, simple, one-piece items are slowly becoming my uniforms. I refuse to think anymore when the temperature is this high.
What’s worse is that whenever I go inside air-conditioned places, I still get cold enough to need to wear a jacket. Someone teleport me to a place that is 10 degrees Celsius right now. Maybe back to sakura-filled Japan because I’m obviously still not over it.
Back from Tokyo! I had the busiest time but I’m not complaining. I originally planned this trip as some sort of vacation, but so many work opportunities came up and I just suddenly found myself having no free time at all!
One of my agendas while I was in Tokyo was to take up RANDA’s offer to visit any of their stores. I always pass by the one in Shinjuku every time I’m in Tokyo, so I chose this particular store as I was most familiar with it.
I blogged about them last summer, and I remember mentioning how much I swear by Japanese shoe brands. You can never doubt the quality of their shoes because Japanese girls walk around A LOT, and I don’t think they can survive walking (and sometimes, running) around the whole day in poorly-made shoes.
Maho-san from RANDA gave me two pairs as presents (YAY) but I bought two additional pairs because I couldn’t resist all the pretty shoes. I also never owned a pair of white/off-white boots so I finally got one that I can comfortably walk around in.
I also took the opportunity to take photos of their latest S/S14 collection. So many girly designs that you can easily pair with your floral skirts and light denim bottoms.
Perfect beach shoes!
Tropical print is still popular for most S/S collections in Japan. These shoes are sure to be a hit!
Bejeweled flats for lazy days! No need to excessorize anymore.
The most popular silhouette for flats right now. RANDA offers them in unique designs that you can’t find anywhere else.
RANDA collaborated with famous blogger Zina from Fashionvibe to create these shoes. So chic! I can already imagine them paired with tattered boyfriend jeans (another popular S/S trend).
Not your ordinary booties.
Summer sandals! RANDA always has the most interesting wedge designs. Makes your feet look like a million bucks.
A whole wall of RANDA shoes. Can I live here?
One of my favorites from their latest collection. Kawaii yet classy!
Got the black version of these flats for everyday use. I love the subtle bejeweled heels.
RANDA x Hello Kitty collaboration! So many girls in the store fit the beige Hello Kitty loafers.
Wore my RANDA boots immediately! They are insanely comfy, and the heels are just the right height for walking. I traveled around Shinjuku and Shimokitazawa that day and my feet didn’t hurt at all.
Thanks to the RANDA Shinjuku shop staff for the hospitality! I wish my Nihongo were better but I tried my best, lol.
She is wearing a pair from the latest S/S collection. Two-tone also seems like a huge trend this season.
A better view of my outfit (thanks to Asian Impressions for taking this picture). Can’t wait to show you my new shoes in the next couple of weeks!
Fortunately for us who can’t go to Japan all the time, RANDA opened its global webstore that can ship to over 120 countries. YES, the Philippines is included. You just need to have PayPal!

Perks of living in a tropical country - summer clothes all year round! Just G has always been that one brand I like that doesn’t strictly follow all the seasons, so it’s always a breath of fresh air to go into their store in December and not find heavy outerwear or dark colors. Their latest collection features a lot of coral hues and cool blues which are perfect for casual day dressing.
I don’t always go out wearing fancy clothes the whole day. I usually wear simple and comfortable outfits like these whenever I have to go on a quick coffee run or do errands at the bank, grocery shopping, store pull-outs, etc. I do try to put in a little bit of effort every time though, like how I paired my romper with a jacket and my printed tee with a floral skirt in the first two looks to avoid looking too sloppy or lazy, and how I played with different patterns in the last one because I felt like I need to do something with my outfit if I didn’t want to wear fancy shoes and accessories!
