Finally got my hands on the white version of this ever-so-popular sweater. I wore a similar item in pink some time ago, but I’ve always wanted a white one that I can wear with anything, regardless of the season. True enough, it perfectly matched the royal blue shorts and ankle strap heels I wore to an afternoon coffee date with the boyfriend. I changed to black skinny pants and black pointy pumps in the evening for a more polished look.

Ankle straps are typically not recommended for vertically-challenged girls because they visually cut the leg off at the ankle and give the illusion of shorter legs, but if the heel height is high enough and your legs are your greatest asset, why not?

Modest Stripes

I call this dress my parent-approved dress. My mom and dad both commented on separation occasions how much they liked it, with my mom even asking if she could even get one for herself. I guess all parents want their daughters to dress as modestly as possible. Good thing I’ve always had a very conservative sense of style? We’ve never had any major arguments about the stuff that I wear on a daily basis.

This brings me to the idea that I just might be compensating for my plain sense of style by changing hair color and hair style often. Sounds about feasible!

Little Match Girl

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!

Suddenly, a bodycon skirt on my blog! It only means that I must really, really like it. 

There are two reasons why I don’t wear a lot of tight skirts (or tight clothes in general). Firstly, they only emphasize my boxy, shapeless body type. Secondly, the only place that shows all the food that I eat is my abdominal area. I usually end up looking a little pregnant every time I wear something tight, and it just looks weird because the rest of my body is relatively petite. There’s also something about the tilt of my pelvis and the arch of my back a.k.a. complex stuff that I don’t want to think about, lol.

Anyhow, I couldn’t resist getting this one because of the glorious desaturated pastel print! The silhouette is sexy yet the print is sweet. Sounds like the best candidate to break the monotony and predictability of my outfits.

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).

Just G: A Shorts Story

Posted on Tuesday, 11 March 2014

I know that summer is finally here when I need to open the aircon at night to get a good night’s sleep. I usually save a lot of electricity around January and February, but I’m pretty sure I’m also the reason why the electricity bills go up from March to May. Oops! I absolutely abhor scorching hot weather so expect me to be in malls or anywhere cold the next few months.

My closet’s pants pile has been disregarded for some time now, because I’m all about showing off legs nowadays. The flexibility of layering tops, jackets and sweaters appeals to me more because it’s usually my torso that’s sensitive to temperature changes! My legs need to breathe. Thank you very much!

Speaking of legs, shorts are the best ways to show them off this season! Just G’s early summer collection showcases different kinds to suit your needs. I wore one top (also from Just G) to prove how their shorts can be styled for various occasions!

The simple, everyday look with a twist. The shorts I’m wearing here are actually printed gym shorts! Who would’ve thought? Sporty elements are still huge this season, and as usual, I like juxtaposing them with girly and more sophisticated items.

The boy/girl look. Lace and florals with slip-ons and snapbacks? Yes please!

The laid-back weekend look. Just throw a sweater over your lace top if it gets chilly! 

I also matched my lipstick with the embroidery on my denim shorts because I’m a little obsessive-compulsive like that.

The girls’ night out look. I love this pair of shorts because underneath the black lace is a colorful floral print! Great day-to-night item to have in your closet this summer.
