Haven’t done color blocking in so long. My comfort zone is black and white paired with a single color, and I can’t believe I almost let myself forget that color blocking can be fun too. It is during these times that I’m glad I document my outfits. It’s a lot easier to spot certain patterns if you see your photos next to each other. More than just showing people my style, I think my Lookbook serves as a constant reminder that I’m a work in progress. And that white tops really go with everything, lol.
There’s nothing like a gold watch to complete a whole look. I almost never go out without a watch on my wrist nowadays, and I’m thankful that there are watches out there that can serve as *the* statement piece for my outfits.
Obviously, I’m not a fan of piling on accessories or “excessorizing”, and usually just go out with my basic pair of earrings, and a watch of the same metal as my jewelry. The new SHE-4800G-7A watch has genuine SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that are able to compensate for the simplicity of any look. Been wearing it everyday since I got it from the Time Depot store in Shang! It also comes in rose gold and silver, if you’re not a fan of gold. Was originally eyeing the rose gold one, until I realized I don’t have a lot of rose gold jewelry to match it with. Still gorgeous though (photo here)!

Summer sandals need not be boring or height-compromising! While I was thisclose to getting yet another pair of oxfords during my recent visit to Le Bunny Bleu, this bright green pair called out to me way too much that I had to get it ASAP. I have a shortage of green-colored footwear, let alone bright neon open-toe sandals that have a bit of heel on them, so this was just what my shoe collection needed. Wouldn’t hurt to go out of my comfort zone once in a while!
Speaking of comfort zones, I’m sure all of you can relate to me when I say that my life has become so digital - it’s starting to get disconcerting! Instead of manually taking down notes, it’s faster and easier to just take pictures. When I was younger (way before I got into photography), I was one of those kids in school who was always tasked with decorating the blackboard, etc. It seems like I unlearned everything as I grew older and shifted interests! Didn’t think it was even possible. However, I still have a small glimmer of hope that I can revive that non-computer-dependent side of myself that has been on hiatus these past few years.
Good thing Le Bunny Bleu is holding a basic lettering workshop this Saturday!
This is only the first of Le Bunny Bleu’s series of our Crafts Workshops. Super exciting, right? Since Le Bunny Bleu is a romantic vintage brand with old Euro world charm combined with New York modernism, they will be holding workshops (for free!) for their dear customers to celebrate this aesthetic. Their first Lettering 101 workshop will be perfect for beginners who want to know how to do simple lettering and calligraphy. Entrance is absolutely free as well, so there’s absolutely no excuse not to go!
It’s going to be at Le Bunny Bleu’s Shangri-la store on June 28 (Saturday) 10:30am – 12:00pm. The workshop will be conducted by the great Abbey Sy! I might go (probably with Crissey if she’s free) so we’ll see you there, yes?
Participants simply need to wear their own Le Bunny Bleu shoes on the day of the workshop and reserve slots ahead of time at any Le Bunny Bleu store. Slots are limited so please inform them as soon as you can. Once you reserve a slot. they will brief you about what to bring. What’s more fun is that they will also be giving away special gifts to the participants!
Le Bunny Bleu Philippines can be found at 5th Floor Shangri-la Plaza 654-2599 and 2nd Floor Glorietta 5 955-7225. You can also RSVP via firstname.lastname@example.org
Showing off my shoulders with this dress I can see myself wearing even after summer. Cold shoulder trend is still going strong, it seems! Good for me because I’ve always loved this silhouette even when I was a lot younger. There’s just something so subtly sexy about showing the neck and collarbones instead of the usual chest/waist/hips/butt (which are all not my good points).
Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ) actually came out the same year I was born! It’s admirable how timeless most Ghibli films have become. People of all ages still know them by heart decades after the films came out, and the characters have also become pop culture icons in their own right.
Sadly, I wasn’t able to go to the Ghibli museum in Japan last March. The tickets sold out so early and so fast! *cry* I’ll make it happen one day. In the meantime, I’ll probably just ogle at the pretty merchandise in Donguri Republic (a Ghibli-themed store in Hong Kong).
What’s your favorite Studio Ghibli film? Mine is a tie between Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle. My first Ghibli film was super depressing though. I don’t think my heart can handle watching Grave of the Fireflies again. After the ending, I had to watch the first scene again just so I can have proper closure, lol.
