13JUN2014 // LIPPIE ACCESSORY



Top & Mesh Bodysuit: American Apparel / Shorts: Comme des Garçons BLACK / Slip ons: ASOS / Ayahko Bag: Wabi Sabi



This is how I wear colour– lips, sunnies, and on occasion, shoes. 
Even in the summer, you’ll see me wearing dark lips; even when travelling in winter, it’s likely you’ll find me wearing a crazy lip colour. It’s the easiest way to add a little something to a look, especially one that’s monochromatic as mine, it’s as good as an accessory.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! X

23MAY2014 // OPTION 2

Have you ever had two very close outfits to decide on for an occasion? Pretty sure that’s a yes.

I recently went to the bomb event of Philippine Star’s Young Star who recently turned 18. The theme was Prom Kla$$y, so for sure I knew I had to wear something tailored. Here’s what I ended up wearing. I made a buttoniere to go with the prom theme, just a fun little touch. I chose the outfit totally by feel. I went for the softer look because I felt it was the right amount of girly for the night with the silk pants and heels.

Here, on the other hand, was the second option.

Wishing everyone had a great Easter holiday!

I wanted to do a little project for the blog, something along the line of themed outfit posts. Since my personal style is a little bit inconsistent apart from it being mine, I thought I’d at least try to put it to good use. This one is going to be a three-part post with the theme of skirts. Starting off with my most used one; this Y-3 skirt from the SS12 collection is one of my most versatile pieces. Not too girly, not too dressy, but enough details to play around with to style in several ways. Because the fabric is made of sweat material, it is extremely comfortable. I got away with wearing this in the cold spring last February in Paris, layered with black tights and heeled boots. I just have to make sure to walk like a lady when wearing this skirt because of that oversized ribbing on the hem.

OTHER SIDE

I forgot how to wear skinny jeans. I realized the other day how I had a greater difficulty styling skinny jeans than any other bottom I had in my closet. Curious case– I believe I have become far too comfortable in my long shorts, trousers, joggers and mens jeans. When I first wore skinny jeans, I hoarded them in different prints and shades of blue, and said to myself that I would never wear any other cut of pants ever. It’s funny to be on the other side and laugh at that memory. A few years later, I now enjoy a wider range of bottoms, including my drop crotch shorts which some may address as diaper pants, harem pants, blah blah blah. I love them, and I want more!

Shooting at the supermarket was quite a bit of fun. They are quite strict about it here so we were little rebels doing our own thing. Thank you Jowell for another set of great photos!
