Pocahontas

 I know, another late-yet-still-worthy-to-blog-about post! hahaha! My Halloween Costume! I was Pocahontas this Halloween 2012! This costume was from my friend Sarah Garcia, she used this for her Creative shot for her Graduation shoot. She let me borrow it for Halloween! I love this costume because it really looks like Pocahontas' outfit in the Disney movie 'Pocahontas'. But a lot of my friends are teasing me that I should've dressed up as Mulan instead. Boo. hahaha! I guess I don't have to post any outfit details because this was custom made for my friend's shoot!haha!:) 






Achieve ba ang Pocahontas look ko? Achieve naman diba?haha!:)

 So tell me, am I too late to share my Halloween costume? It's not yet the end of November isn't it? hahaha! Kidding I know I'm so late! Anyway I have to hit the sheets now! Good night!

Zig Zag

This outfit was taken a month ago! I forgot to post it! haha! Anyway sorry for my blogging hiatus, this is really a busy year for me because of my thesis. I have to set my priorities and school is on the top of my list if I want to graduate this March LOL.

 As I promised, I'll keep you updated once in a while. So right now I can tell that I'm doing well with my thesis, I went to Baguio to buy the fabric that I need to use for my shoes and bags (will post about my trip soon) working on with my book and collaterals while waiting for the shoes and bags to finish. I'm so happy I'm halfway done! I get nervous once in a while but I think it's just normal isn't it? haha!

Anyway back to my outfit... This is what I wore to Kreesha's 18th birthday at Packo's Grill Tomas Morato a few weeks ago. It's a small but awesome celebration with her family and closest friends. I wore this outfit for a lazy casual night out look :)

1. Top, Unica Hija 2. Skirt, SM GTW

 3. Shoes, SO!Fab
 4. Necklace, bought online 5. Cuff, HissBliss



 *excuse this face haha

Will update you once in a while I promise! Wish me luck and pray for me for my thesis! Thank you so much!

Oh btw, I will walk for the world's biggest fashion show this Thursday for Ensembles, The New Glorietta Vibe Fashion Show at Palm Drive 6pm! I'm psyched! See you there?:)

SuperSale Bazaar 5-day Holiday 2012 Edition


SuperSale Bazaar 5-day Holiday 2012 Edition

Your calendar is no doubt stuffed with holiday cocktail parties galore right now, so we figured you might want to welcome a full-on fashion event for all of these upcoming events. Plus, New Year's Eve is right around the corner, so rather than reaching for your favorite shiny dress or attempting some sort of a different take on the military trend, this season, we highly suggest spending on your wardrobe at 90% off. Like you, we are self confessed shoppers, who are always faced with the dilemma whether to splurge on having killer outfits for those parties or have a huge gift budget for your family and friends.

While the holiday season typically calls for sequined dresses and embellished heels, top-tier members of the fashion pack are also preparing their wrapped boxes to give away this Christmas. Now, combining these two under one roof will not be a problem this season as SuperSale brings you its annual Holiday sale. This 16th event under the team’s belt will be the biggest premium Holiday shopping experience.

From your favorite fashion brands to Christmas decors, the team has never concocted the perfect mix of Holiday shopping. The SuperSale Bazaar Holiday Edition will be held on December 1-5, 2012 at the World Trade Center Hall D, from Saturday to Wednesday, 10am-9pm. We know how the crazy Christmas rush goes so for this edition, the team has extended the experience for you from the normal 3-day sale to five days of hunting for on-trend bargains.

The biggest to date with more than 350 brands, the tent will house designer veterans and budding brands this edition. Rounding up your usual suspects- Abby Jocson, Glitterati, Moonshine, Celline, Apartment 8, Soak Swimwear, I Love Koi, S&H, Gold Dot, Das My Shoes, Posh Pocket Shoes, Sole Service, Toni and Berne and much more are going to be there as well as highly anticipated new comers such as Haze, Vishoes, Sophisticat Shoes, Erb and Chet, Bag Lovers to name a few. Blogger’s United will also round up their own pool of bloggers who will sell not only their own accessory and apparel brands but also their own chic pieces.

Whether buying party outfits or surprising your family and friends with nice gifts, the SuperSale Bazaar team guarantees100% shopping satisfaction.

Love of Lace

A quick post before I hit the sheets! I have to post this because it's been in my drafts for days already!haha! Anyway this is what I wore last Philippine Fashion Week for the Lee show. Supported my friends who joined the Lee Style Army Competition last October at the SM Moa Atrium. The show was great! The talents and creativity of several students from different universities were seen by showcasing their style and design through fashion! Congratulations to everyone who joined!:)

Anyway back to my outfit, I opted to wear this dress that I bought from Forever 21 days before the show because I want something that's easy to wear and easy to change. I have to head straight to Baguio after the show for my thesis so I have to change my clothes right away.

P.S. I love this lace dress and I'm so happy to find one in this color!

1. Lace dress, Forever 21 2.Shoes, Forever 21
3. Necklace and Bangles, Forever 21 4.Rings, Cotton Candy Accessories




I just noticed that this is a Forever 21 head to toe outfit. (except for the rings) hihi

I've been skipping events lately, focusing with my studies right now. You see I have 11 weeks to go before our thesis defense so I have to give extra effort with my thesis. Nevertheless, I'm enjoying my school-house routine, I guess I'm also making the most out of the days left. Btw, It's our college week next week and I'm beyond excited!I planned two sets of costumes for this!hihi:)
Good night now :)

XOXO

Menswear

I'm watching the SM Men's Show at Philippine Fashion Week that day so I decided to wear a Menswear inspired outfit and this is what I came up with. I wanted to look sharp and chic at the same time. I don't want the outfit to look boring because I always find outfits with plain pants and blazer look boring and too corporate so I used this popping salmon pink blazer for a more interesting look. Gold and pink accessories to finish off the look and Voila! I hope I achieved the girly menswear look (is there such thing?hahaha) 


 1. Blazer, Tomato 2. Top, Folded and Hung 3.Pants, Bench
 4.Shoes, So!Fab
 5.Necklace, shop dress up doll  6. Braided bracelet, Bell Charms  7. Pink Bracelet, Macarone
 8. Envelope clutch, Ensembles
By the way, this look was featured in Stylebible.ph 

Thank you Mark Buenaobra for this photo :*

Oh, another thing, I'm digging the low heel ankle strap shoes trend. It's comfy and it look so classy! I wore one in this outfit, bought it in two colors one for my mom from So!Fab.

I'm having a giveaway from one of my favorite accessories shop online! Watch out for it soon!:)

XOXO
