Sunday Morning

First of all, I thought of "Sunday Morning" as my title because this was taken literally at 1am in the morning and I was playing Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 while uploading this on Lookbook!:))

Anyway, wore this last Saturday during my night out with some friends. Had dinner at Mercato Centrale and continued the night at The Fort Strip. Theme of the night for Jossa and I, Leopard and sparkles. We didn't planned our outfits, we just coincidentally wear the same outfits everytime we go out :)) Great minds, dress alike. 

1. Top, SM Department Store. 2.Leopard Trousers, Greenhills.






 3.Necklace, Bell Charms. 4.Charm bracelet and Bangles, Forever 21.

 5.Shoes, Folded and Hung

6.Purse, Accessorize

Jossa and I!:)

It's difficult to take outfit shots at night time. There's no proper lighting.boo. anyway, I'll post about our night out soon!

Good night!

Work Wear Diaries II

I can't believe that I still have the guts to blog at this very moment knowing that I have lots of plates to do. HAHA! Anyway, just a quick one before I go back to rendering :))

This is what I wore last Monday for my OJT. I'm having my OJT for a designer. Kept it casual so it will be easier for me to work.

1.Blazer,Soiree SM Department Store. 2.Green top,from the states. 3.Black skinny jeans, Bench.


 4.Purple Shoes, Folded and Hung.

 5,Necklace, Ruckus.

Besides having my OJT that day, I also dropped by 7 For All Mankind Greenbelt 5 to claim my Holiday present from Accessorize!:)

They're sooo sweet to give treats to bloggers! A sparkly black purse. Thank you sooo much Ms Ayet!♥


So I guess that's all for now, take a peek of what I'm doing. It looks easy and fun, but hey, it's hard to sketch a minimum of 25 designs eh? This one is for my fashion class. I'm also drawing another thing right now for my Illustration subject. I'm starting to feel the prelims!:))


 Off to bed, so sleepy!

Good Night World!

Shades of Blue

Hello!
How's school so far?Honestly, I'm still buzzed about my Christmas vacation. Good thing we don't have plates yet. Anyway, had a great start for 2012. Blessings are rushing in, and I'm so thankful. Hope you guys are also having a good time!:)

So, this is what I wore on a Sunday with the family. Went to the church, dinner, Starbucks and movie marathon. It was raining so I have to keep myself slightly covered because of the cold breeze. I've always loved Sundays since second sem, because I don't have classes on Mondays and I really feel so lucky :))

1.Blazer, Suzto Manila.  2.Dress, TOPS.



 3.Shoes, Jellybean.  4.Tassel Necklace, Bubbles.

Come in with the rain...

This is what I wore to the shoot for megastyle.ph. We had our shoot along the wet streets of Ortigas. I was really surprised by how the photos turned out. I expected it to be a little bit gloomy but hell no, they're awesome! I wasn't suppose to be carrying an umbrella but as we stay outside, the rain grew stronger so I have to pull off this look with the umbrella. Luckily, the umbrella matched my outfit! I guess my outfit will not pop out of this picture without the umbrella. HAHA!

studded button down by The Ramp, tweed shorts by Zara, necklace by Renz Pangilinan and studded booties by Aldo


 I love these spikes, they're not spikey. HAHA! But seriously, these spikes are friendly enough to wear. And it really makes the outfit stylish and edgy.



This tweed shorts is really nice. Reminds me of Chanel!:)

NOW HYPE,

MEGASTYLE.PH WARDROBE FEATURE :)

Starting my 2012 with a bang! First days of new year has been awesome. Spent time with friends, had a lot of shopping and my favorite of all, had enough sleep.haha!

What makes me more giddy is this! My first online feature for 2012. Megastyle.ph feature just today! My friends tweeted the link to me. Got so *kilig with this feature because it's from megastyle, got positive and sweet feedbacks and I absolutely love the photos!


 "Focus on staple pieces like a white top and a black shorts to look effortlessly chic. You don't always have to follow a trend!" - Nicole




It says:

Rainy weather doesn't have to put a damper on your style. Stick to a classic palette of black and white, but try using pieces with a twist. Nicole's tweed shorts and studded oxford shirt add an edgy dimension to a tried and tested look. To finish off, hrow on a couple of rings and you're good to go.
