One of my many classic fashion icons is THE Blair Waldorf. Apart from loving Leighton Meester herself (!!!!), I am so engrossed with Blair’s extremely sophisticated and lady-like outfits. Always ready to surmount the world with her blazers, ribbon headbands, dresses, capes and of course, her vivid stockings. Blair Waldorf is someone I cannot outgrow! Back in high school, I hoarded ribbon headbands in different shades and always wore them to school, curled my hair for no apparent reason because I envied her hair, bought colored stockings because she wore them a lot and even copied the style of one of her gowns for my senior prom! Haha Up to now, I still admire her with all my heart, I wish Gossip Girl never ended so soon!
I didn’t have an inspiration initially when I tried this outfit on. But when I glanced at the mirror, that’s the only time I realized that I was channeling my inner Blair Waldorf. Hence, I added the headband to suffice the Blair Waldorf look. Heehee.
Her outfit which I think is almost similar to mine. Ahhh I love her!
How about you? Who are your fashion icons? :)
Oftentimes people would ask me, “What is your style?” Truth is, I don’t know how to put it together, but I think the closest I can come up with is spontaneous. I don’t adhere to any rules in fashion, I don’t stick to a single style, I wear what I think looks perfectly together and what makes me feel good about myself.
Girls and boys are usually daunted to don outfits because they have immensely low self-esteem. We’ve all been in that long and awkward path in our lives. It’s just a matter of learning to love yourself and being surrounded with positive people who have faith in you.
Don’t be discouraged, never listen to what others tell you, experiment, wear what makes you happy, conquer your fashion fears.
Last Sunday, my food buddies and I went to try the newly opened and most coveted American restaurant in town, IHOP. I was anticipating for a loooong queue, but were extremely taken aback when we learned that we were the 173rd on the line and the people who were about to be seated was 75th! The girl informed us that we’d have to wait for 2-3 hours. We did not want to disappoint ourselves and swore we’d push through despite the lengthy line. Along with our famished selves (no food ingested for that day yet), we headed to 2nd’s to somewhat fulfill our hunger and ordered for appetizers. Despite the fact that it was only an “appetizer”, we already felt satiated. After 2nd’s, we went back immediately to IHOP to check our spot. Thank goodness, it was already down on its 168th. After what felt like 2-3 minutes, the girl called Fhia’s name, then we were already seated. Ahhh, it was one of the most rewarding feelings ever. Lol.
This burgundy velvet skater skirt from It’s All About Hue makes it debut in my blog. It’s so lovely, and the color is just so classy. Another closet staple here. Can be worn in the morning with a loose top and sneakers, and can be worn during the night with a sequined black top and heels! Ahhh. I want to collect them in all colors! This will be overused for sure.
All set for summer 2013 because of these perfect sunnies! Check out Cool Cats Manila for more.
Hi I’m still in the adjusting phase of this entire Tumblr Create New post thing. It’s so tricky for me. Editing the image size and preview can’t be done anymore (Or can it?) Please enlighten me!
My Valentines 2013 outfit! Lol. I always make it a point to wear red every Vday and indulge in a luxurious dinner with girlfriends. This time of the year, Fhia, Tovy and I went to A Taste of L.A. for dinner. Their food and ambiance were superb, except maybe the fact that we were seated beside couples (all of the people beside us were lovers!) being sweet along with their heavy bouquet of flowers while savoring their food and acting as if they’re the only people in that place. Oh don’t get me wrong though, I loved being surrounded with couples. But deep inside it just makes me long for Edi even more because he’s so far and Vdays are usually not spent with him. Awww.
So how did you spend your Vday? Who did you spend it with? :)
Yay, finally a new post! I’m not completely neglecting this blog, though. I enjoy every bit of sharing and documenting my outfits and all so I’m still keeping this despite the huge lack of new posts.
What I wore on a Saturday night dinner with Fhia. Whoo, it was another one hell of a week for us (what’s new!) Anyhoo, this is just another one of my lengthy list of no-brainer, lazy, comfortable and spontaneous outfits. There’s nothing wrong with it, right? I will always be partial to comfort dressing. This brown-red jeans right here was out of the ordinary. The fabric was soft and thin, so I can easily move around with it!
There’s no greater feeling than spending time with good old friends whom you haven’t seen in a long while. Last December (hell yes this is a backlog), I met up with three of my high school loves: Roma, Jane and Jovelle. Every moment spent with them is priceless, and always filled with laughter and lengthy conversations about our current life (the four of us are in a long distance relationship, mind you. Roma and Jane resides in Baguio for college while Jovelle is now living in Hawaii for good, though she went home here to spend Christmas with her family), news about the people we know, and anything under the sun.
We hit the road in the late afternoon and ended up in this secluded restaurant named Stone House Cafe, which is quite far from the city proper. It’s different in here. Privacy was given, and there were only 5 customers when we went, including the 3 of us.
Jane and Jovelle. If my memory serves me right, the last time I’ve seen these two was April 1, 2012 during Jovelle’s send-off party.
Ahhh I’m missing them already as I type this.
