Jumping on the midi circle skirt bandwagon with this one. You can pair anything with this skirt and still end up looking ultra feminine. This is exactly why everyone needs to have at least one of these in their closets.
Apparently, I’ve also caught the holiday fashion bug with the colors I used for this outfit. How is it already November? My heart and mind are still stuck in June!
Went all-out pastel and girly with this one, as I am clearly milking the last few weeks before I shift to my favorite fall/winter fashion. Somehow, without me realizing it, my spring/summer style has immensely matured throughout the years (I mean, compared to this from ‘11). Well, admittedly, I’ve been a little lazy, turning towards simpler, more practical stuff that don’t really require that much fuss. Dresses are a no-brainer as you don’t have to think too much about styling separates. Aging, whyyoudothis
I don’t know if my parents and siblings had anything to do with my favorite color, but I’ve loved blue for as long as I can remember. Give me 50 shades of blue, and I can assure you that all of them can be pulled off easily by almost anybody. In my opinion, blue is a little understated, but classic in its own little way. A cool cobalt blue can actually deliver just as well as flaming hot red! Sky blue is also a versatile color that can be used for all seasons. Usually, we associate this light kind of blue with spring/summer, but contrary to popular belief, they can also work well for fall/winter. Here are two examples that demonstrate the power of this super cool shade! It has largely to do with what you style your items with. In this case, pairing light blue with black, white and metallic silver is a good idea.
Spring/Summer’s got dreamy, flirty watercolor prints this 2013! Definitely for those who have always wanted to wear art on a daily basis! Bless whoever brought these prints back as the trend includes both ends of the spectrum - soft pastels on one end. and bright, vivid colors on another. I love it when trends give you options to choose from even if they follow the same theme! I guess I have a thing with the concept of being one-dimensional, though I’m pretty sure I have a tendency to become one-dimensional myself. Or at least with the very little stuff I reveal on this blog. By now you’ve all probably established that I am a huge introvert and don’t go out socializing with new people a lot or revealing so many things about my private life (travels excluded), so… here’s a cool related article before I run off to my own world again!
Apartment 8’s Blair is back with her signature girly look! This top is yet to be released, and I’m so excited to be the first one to wear it. The halter neckline is definitely rocking it this season, but don’t you just love the little ruffle detail on the side? So fresh! Watch out for the white version soon too!
This blush and white theme (plus some help with Mr. Photoshop and Ms. Lighting) is emphasizing my tan so much! Loving every bit of it as for the first time in my life, I seem to look more mature and sexy than the usual cutesy-cute. What do you think?
Apartment 8’s Blair is back, and she got first dibs on new items that haven’t been released yet! So happy!
I can sense this halter top being another one of their best sellers, especially now that this silhouette is all over stores right now. One of the most endearing things about halter necklines is how they are able to flatter the narrow shoulders + small bust body type (which I happen to have), a usually tricky body type that tends to be overwhelmed by most shoulder-emphasizing clothes. Halter necklines (for me, at least) give the illusion of a broader upper body (which I totes need) but I like them most for that conservative-but-not-really element that they have.
Here’s another lust-worthy dress that’s going to be available in stores soon. The fabric reminds me of melted gold, and the unique print makes sets the dress apart from all the plain ones of the same style. Definitely a versatile piece that you can use in both casual and dressy occasions, depending on the accessories and shoes that you pair it with.
I just want to fill my closet with sweaters. I’d also wear cozy oversized sweaters to sleep if only the weather in Manila permitted it. It’s been 4 years since I started documenting outfits, and I am still obsessed with these knits. Who can blame me for always choosing comfort and functionality over everything else? They serve as easy solutions to chilly but lazy-to-dress-up evenings, as well as perfect layering pieces for traveling in winter or spring. I get cold easily (I don’t exactly know why, but I’ve always been like this since I was a kid) so I can definitely live in sweaters and jackets all throughout the year, regardless of the season.
On a related note, I congratulate myself for the conscious effort to not wear black. Huzzah! I’m actually on a quest to give my other clothes a chance to shine. And giving our laundry person a break from washing the same black stuff over and over again because maybe it’s getting boring!
My new default lazy dress c/o none other than EMODA. I already splurged a bit when I went to their store in The One HK, so I decided to behave like a good girl, and choose only 1-2 items to get from them this time. The EMODA in Fukuoka can be found in Parco, which is near the Tenjin Core and Solaria Stage area, so it was quite easy to go to, and very convenient as well since it was located beside other MODE brands like MURUA, if you’re into that kind of style. I’ve always supported EMODA thanks to the constant features in ViVi, but my love for it is mostly because their style is a perfect blend of everything that I consider my fashion influences. Just the right marriage of Japanese fashion and Western high street. Not so cutesy (like Liz Lisa) but still youthful and timeless.
After racking my brains out in the store, because everything was just absolutely wonderful, it all boiled down to this dress and this necklace. The dress was a sure winner - my mom even asked me if it came in other colors because she would totally get one for herself too. The original black, gray and white pattern is classic, and the boxy cut is also sophisticated and chic. On the other hand, the necklace is just something that is so me, yes? Based on years of posting outfit photos, you guys might have already noticed that my taste in accessories is very simple and understated. You won’t even notice the necklace against the busy pattern of the dress, but that is exactly the way I like it.
