When I went to Melbourne, I wanted to go crazy at Bardot. Someone bring it to Manila! All their items scream sass and sophistication.
As soon as I laid my eyes on this gradient top, I knew I had to have it! If my mom wasn’t around to stop me, I would’ve also gotten a jacket and a pair of trousers in the same exact fabric.
Just imagine if I wore these three items all together, lol.
I naturally matched the yellow-green of my top with a bag of a similar shade. I know I’m months late with the neon trend, but I only recently acknowledged its knack for being a bold statement. No need for accessories if you’ve got something as bright as this. Kept it simple and fuss-free by wearing all the embellishment on my jacket instead of my neck and wrists.
Hope you enjoyed the second day of my blog’s mini event. Watch out for my next post tomorrow! :)
I’ve been dreaming about owning a black and white blazer-trouser set for the longest time now, and I’ve finally found the perfect one. I love the floral print overload, which is totes Spring/Summer, and the fact that the print is all dark and ethereal, perfect for Fall/Winter.
While wearing something like this may seem extreme for some, you can always use the blazer and the trousers separately. How incredibly convenient is that?
Rock the overwhelming printed suit by pairing it with simplest items to make the prints be the center of attention. I didn’t even bother wearing accessories for this look, because any kind of addition to this outfit would just take away from the point of it all.
I *was* tempted to do a color accent again, and was thisclose to adding royal blue or yellow! I decided to just really keep it understated by just swiping a bright coral color on my lips!
A closer look on the fabric that’s all nice and black and white with a tinge of pale purple. Not gonna lie, but first thing that came to my head when I saw this was Final Fantasy IX antagonist Kuja (thus my word play on the title). This printed suit, I believe, would be a good representation of him and his character design. I even painted my nails a pale blue to match the original Yoshitaka Amano artwork.
Yep, you can be a video game geek and love fashion at the same time, lol.
4 days to go before the official launch of Apartment 8!
The power of red lips! I can’t believe I am just joining the red lipstick bandwagon now! After much encouragement from my make-up artist friends, I decided to wear red lipstick for consecutive days to be able to get used to it. It really does create a totally different look, especially on someone like me whose comfort zone switches from nude to pink lips only.
Here I am wearing MAC Ruby Woo (with clear gloss) to complement my minimalist black and white outfit. I feel like red lipstick makes this rather simple outfit seem fierce and sophisticated without having to pile on accessories to achieve that effect.
Also, am I the only one who thinks that Ruby Woo is *the* universally perfect red? Thanks to Reggie for always being my red lipstick inspiration. I wouldn’t have discovered this lipstick if it weren’t for her.
Anyhow, try to imagine me wearing this outfit but with my usual pink blush and pink lipstick. So different, right? Here are some tips if you want to try red lips too:
1) Keep your eye make-up to a minimum. Avoid looking like a clown by keeping your lids and lower lashline free from anything heavy and dark. Red lips work best with just eyeliner, mascara, and a neutral barely-there eyeshadow.
2) Choose a shade that works best for your skin tone. Warmer reds are generally more flattering on medium/olive-toned Asians.
I know I haven’t updated my blog for a few days now since I’m quite busy with other work (mostly post-processing and photography-related work), but don’t fret as I’ll be trying to post more often after this! I’ll be out of the country again starting this weekend, so I’ll definitely be queueing all the Lookbook outfits that I haven’t posted here yet. Watch out for my last Paris post too! I’m so excited to share it with all of you.
I knew I said I was going to take a break from wearing brights and pastels, but the rainy season just makes you want to fight the gloominess in every way possible. The most basic thing I can do is, well, express it with fashion!
Speaking of the rainy season, it’s finally time to get your jackets out of your closet! This denim jacket is from H&M’s newest collection, and I love how it’s long and how it doesn’t have a collar. It’s all in the details.
Rarely do I wear fitted bottoms, but these shorts were just too adorable to only end up being covered by my blue velvety top. Do they look familiar? It’s because I have the same one in orange!
Mint is one of the “it” colors of 2012, if not “the” color of the year, and I don’t think I can get over it any time soon. Such a classy color that makes a rather simple outfit stand out!
