Soooooo I just realized I never shared these photos on here! Here’s Part 1 of my Instagram takeover with @hommeetfemmeph (of H&F Retail Concepts Inc., only the best retailer in Manila, so you can imagine my excitement!!!) a few months back.

Happy Post-Hump Day babes! Xx

Wow, what a crazy month it’s been. Update: I now work in the food industry and went through a month-long renovation (hella challenging) and I couldn’t be happier that we have finally opened. I’m celebrating the breathing space with a long-long-long-long overdue blog post. Man, have I missed it!

Here wearing perfectly dropped (yes I’m very anal about the amount of fabric in the crotch lol) drop crotch shorts by Masscob (a Spanish brand carried by Tilda) with a mix of sporty via my Saints cap and femme via my drapey top and heels. It’s just one of those days I wanted to be all of the above, but in black, of course.

I’ve been loving the afternoon sun a lot lately especially for photos. Though it could be a bit much sometimes, there are moments it just looks, well, golden. Made it just in time before the dreadful rain, too.

Have a lovely weekend everyone! xx

KNOTTY FRIDAY

Taking a break from the pants and sneakers and slipping on an easy dress. I love everything about this one, especially that it makes me seem a little taller in certain angles because of the lovely drape of the fabric. Yes I know I must be crazy for wearing long sleeves and half-boots in this dreadful heat, but lately I’ve really just been dressing for transitional weather (which, in reality, happens many times a day here in Manila as we go in and out of air conditioned areas) plus I’ve just been dying to wear these beauties.

Happy weekend everyone! Don’t forget your sunnies like I did xx

23SEP2016 // SHADOW PLAY

Man, it’s been a while. I’ve been crazy busy with restaurant things- it feels so good to finally take a break ♡ Had a bit of fun playing with the tree shadows while taking these photos.

This look is my little answer to this very hot day. This, and an iced latte (not pictured). Really excited to be wearing my granny trainers, as I call them, they’re super comfy because the insoles are made of memory foam (what?!?!). I predict them to be my new staples.

Happy weekend everyone! And happy fashion weeks!! So excited xx

19AUG2016 // BLEACH TOP

DSC_0033 DSC_0037DSC_0043

One of my favourite local brands, bleach, closed shop sometime last year. I know it’s been a year, and I haven’t gotten over it just yet. Anyway, that’s where this top is from. It’s a sleeveless printed top made with sweat fabric so it’s a little tricky to wear in Manila heat. Since it’s storm season, it’s just perfect for the (very) slight crisp in the air. Decided to go with the hip-hugging trumpet skirt to femme it up but of course dressing it down with some sneaks (I promise I’ll wear heels next week).

 

Happy weekend everyone! X

Sunnies Specs

Went to a lovely friend’s very stylish wedding recently. I love getting to wear black to a wedding (since the majority of weddings I’ve attended are Chinese, black is a no-no!), and really excited that I had an excuse to wear this outfit. I’m especially loving that I found the perfect specs for all occasions, including formal events, and one I’m proud to have worked on together with the Sunnies team ♡♡♡

20MAY2016 // CASUAL FRIDAY

DSC_0033 DSC_0043 DSC_0050

Who am I kidding? Everyday is casual friday. Loving my new nylon tie pants. Perfectly lightweight for this hot but rainy weather.

Chokers are ubiquitous for the moment, I know, but it’s one of the few things from my teenage life that I never really got over. I got these ones from a local maker called Wolfe + Huntr (shoutout to Reggie for the  reco) for my semi-gothic fashion dreams. I love how they have a touch of elegance despite them having the harness vibe. You may or may not be seeing these a lot in the posts to follow he he

Happy weekend everyone!

13MAY2016 // DATE NIGHT

DSC_0014DSC_0030DSC_0033 DSC_0054

Dressing for date night is always a fun challenge. At least for me, because I always have to wear something oversized or something that plays around with silhouette to feel like myself. Unless its a really awesome dress, I prefer to play with separates to be more flexible (could be literal now that I think of it. Ha ha)

Ended up with my favourite vest, cut up flares and the usual little peek-a-boo. Mules are default since I can’t walk in high heels anymore #grandmaproblems

16AUG2015 // PINTO ART MUSEUM

DSC_0062 DSC_0064 DSC_0094

Been meaning to visit the Pinto Art Museum (a relatively new local museum about 45 minutes from the city) for ages! Finally got to go with my family recently. I had no expectations going in, except that I’ve heard great things about it and have seen really cool photos taken there. I was really surprised to find a really diverse collection of art! I highly recommend a visit even just to chill at their cafe and lounge around.
