And the addiction for bell sleeves and cut-out shoulder details continues with this more-than-adorable pastel dress that I can’t get enough of. Got it in blue as well, in true Tricia fashion where I get the same style in different colors. I don’t know if this dress is still available on the website, but after receiving this in the mail and wearing it, I regret not getting the yellow and green ones too.
Trends come and go, get revived after years or decades, and are often reworked to become more current, less dated. Bell sleeves from the 60s are officially back this spring, but with a more updated feel to them! The 60s has always been one of my favorite eras for fashion, and reviving trends from that time is always a good idea, don’t you think?
Semi-summer dressing. Can you see the effort? I’ve always mentioned that summer is my least favorite season and that it is really not my element to spend all my time at the beach, but that doesn’t stop me from wearing bright and colorful, strictly no-black outfits such as this one! Couldn’t help but throw in a powder blue blazer though, as I can never, ever get over any form of outerwear, especially if it’s in my favorite color.
It’s raining as I type this, and I’m overjoyed that summer is officially over. It’s time to bring out all my knits again!
Today’s outfit is “Today’s Outfit”. Sorry, I couldn’t help it! One of the reasons why I got this top was because I wanted to be able to say today’s outfit is today’s outfit is today’s outfit is today’s outfit. Today’s outfitception. I never want it to end. I have Kryz to thank for this! She wants everyone to know that WAGW MAN’s gonna have a big sale (up to 70% off) starting June 1 which is just a few days away!
You might have also noticed that I have pink and purple streaks on my hair. I recently bought 2 pieces of hair chalk during my trip to Japan at 630yen each (ouch) but @glameffect on Instagram sent me a whole box a few days ago. Don’t know if soft pastels or hair chalk (or if they’re the same anyway), but I like how they make it so fast to add colored streaks to hair now. People really do find ways to achieve things easier. Dried my hair out so bad though, so I just might stick to just Photoshopping fake streaks and ombres in the long run.
Quick post! Clearly, someone had too much fun playing with similar shapes. It’s been a while since I last wore polkadots, and I couldn’t help but pair them with a leatherette skirt with these tiny golden dot studs on them. Maybe I should save this outfit again for the next New Year, in case the dots give me good fortune for 2014. I’m already having a blast this 2013 with all sorts of exciting projects, and I can only wish for more new experiences in the next couple of years. Gotta make that happen!
Got these pants as a present from Pinkaholic some time ago, but only got to wear them now! I took a break from wearing printed bottoms lately as it was starting to become a uniform, but I’m slowly warming up to all these fun patterns again!
This time I dared to wear black and white with brown - something that I’ve never really done before! It weirded me out at first, until I realized that the shoes (which I got at 50% off, btw!) would fit the outfit only if I had a matching brown bag!
There is an abundance of lines in this outfit, and I’m loving every centimeter of it. I resurrected these shoes from a long time ago! Right now, clear/transparent elements on shoes are quite big, and I’m glad this pair has already been lying around on my shoe rack for a while. If you’ve noticed, I’ve also been into a lot of open-toe footwear recently! There’s nothing else quite as spring and summer, I think.
Seriously feeling as mixed as the prints on my top. Don’t know if it’s stripes with leopard print, or leopard print with stripes, but it’s probably not important, or worth my time self-debating about. Yup, I should listen to what I type in here.
Paired it with something I’ll always be sure of - this kind of skirt. As much as I try to seem more mature now that I’m 24, I can never shake this cutesy silhouette off. Some things will always remain the same, I guess!
Bringing back the “dated fashion” trend with this one, though paradoxically I don’t know if you can call it dated anymore if it’s currently in? Sue me for shifting styles so easily (Who could’ve predicted that this outfit could be worn by the same person who wore that simple and girly outfit in my previous post?) but I simply couldn’t resist the experimental mood I’ve been in since I got back from Japan. I arrived back in Manila with a variety of images in my head - images of the current street style trends in Japan, including this prevalent “modernized 80s-90s style” that I kept on seeing everywhere. Wedge sneakers were definitely the footwear of choice, so I figured I could do the same-ish style with my new designer Pumas!
