Spring has always been my favourite season of the year, besides the fact that it falls on my birthday. It is the warming feeling of the sun, the cooling breeze of the air and most importantly, the colours of the rainbow painted across fields of green that gets me every time.
As most things, however, there are negatives, one of which is hay fever……Oh that dreaded hay fever !!! I’m not just talking about getting little sniffles here and there, I’m talking about the whole shebang: itchy mouth, inflamed red eyes, constant sneezing and nose running like a tap. Yup, if you ever see me in Spring, expect the worst, I am by no means at my best hahahahaha!
Whatever the case, I freaking love spring! Call me a romantic or just plain cheesy, I always saw Spring as a time for new beginnings, I get the sudden spark of inspiration and drive.

I also noticed that my direction in clothing quickly changes. The urge of wearing pants, suddenly changes to shorts, my choices of black and white quickly turns to bright colours and the constant want to wear skirts/dresses is at an all time high.
One type of clothing in particular that I subconsciously keep taking out for a spin, is this oversized floral print midi skirt. Nothing in my wardrobe shouts Spring more than this little number.
Since the weather is currently in-between hot and cold, I find I can never go wrong with this choice. The over the knee length and thick material provides the right balance, accommodating both cool and warm weather.
Because of its bight colourful aesthetic, I find it easier to wear it with basic black and white, just like in this outfit post. However, on days I’m feeling extra confident, I style it with contrasting colours as well as mixing it up with different patterns.
I do need to admit, that the only downside to this skirt is the fact that it is so distinctive, which limits the number of times I can wear it without being to repetitious. In all honesty, however, I am proud about being a serial wardrobe repeat, just as long as there are slight changes to accessories, tops and bottoms. I’m sure I don’t need to give you a heads up that this isn’t the last time you’ll be seeing this skirt HAHAHAHA!

Hello Hello!

So glad to share another outfit post with you all, especially an outfit that includes my love of vintage clothing.
I know I haven’t been as frequent with my posts for the past 2 months but for me, it was a much-needed break. It’s that time of the year when everything falls quickly and so heavily from the preparations of Christmas and the lead up to the summer break. Priorities pile up, the list of ‘things to do’ becomes never ending and the pressures of work and college start to weigh heavily. Worst of all, your negative subconscious starts tempting you to drop everything and give up amidst the pressures of life.
This is something that I am more than familiar with because I have experienced this time and time again.
Before things had become more than overwhelming, I made sure to remove myself from the situation, just for a couple of weeks to adjust. Taking preventive measures to prepare for the stress to come.

Now I’m back in the blogosphere, charged up and ready to go! Currently prioritising business meetings and the importance of taking on quality and not quantity, which is a mistake that I’ve made several times.

To start us off, some you may recognise this fluffy jumper from one of the outfits I wore to fashion week. Well, since then, this vintage gem has kept me not only comfortable but also warm in the coldest of weathers. I found this treasure at a Salvation Army store in the city for just $50 and I haven’t parted ways with it since. I think I’m even in denial that the weather is warming up because even in the warmest of days I find myself wanting to put it on ahahahaha!
I have always loved vintage clothing and it is a perfect fit for someone like me, a student, shopping with cost limitations, however, purchasing clothes without jeopardising the quality and aesthetic.
To create visual depth and compliment it’s vocal point, I wore it with black disco pants and mustard socks against white boots. I could of easily kept it simple with just back and white but to be honest, it’s not me without that little bit of colour hehehe.

To make up for my previous lack of contact, I’ll be posting more frequently within the coming weeks letting you in on all the things I’ve been up to :P

Thanks for visiting and I’ll catch you later this week

Hello Everyone!!!

It’s been a while and for those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I’ll just give you guys a quick run down of what’s been happening.

Late last month I sprained my ankle and took some time off to recover. Unfortunately, 2 weeks into the healing process, I further injured my ankle on the corner of an elevated brick; sneakily peeking out of a brick laid walkway on the way to college. Multiple visits to the doctor, 2 weeks on crutches and a month away from the gym later, here I am.
In short, you haven’t heard from me because I’ve been immobile, feeling sorry for myself whilst stuffing my face with comforting junk food HAHAHAHA! ….. Don’t judge me.. lol!
I’m all good now though, I’m still healing but the good news is I’ve slightly picked up my walking pace from snail speed to grandma speed WOOT WOOT!!!

Now, for those of you on the other side of the world enjoying the summer sun, I, however, am currently in hibernation, avoiding the winter weather and the miserable rain. Only fitting to the reminiscence of sun kissed weather, I wanted share a collaboration I did with an amazing photographer called Toàn Tran.
I’ve worked with different photographers in the past, as a stylist and a creative director. However, this was the first time I’ve worked with another photographer apart from Chin when it comes to blogging and it was such a great collaboration. I had so much fun playing in the water, running around the beach, hanging out. It makes days like this; the rain pouring down, the air temperature cold and moist that makes me miss that summer sun the most. Lets not forget, I am Filipino, lets face it, I wasn’t made for cold weather hahahaha!

Usually, I would share my outfit details; which store I got my dress from, the brand and/or label. This time however, I got this dress on sale for $10 at a super cheap boutique in the city. …I know, I know, sometimes being a blogger can carry expectations for using expensive brands and labels but honestly, I keep it real with you guys and girls. Truth is, I’m poor when it comes to fashion, I work part time and I study. So until the day I’ve worked my way to the top, I’m going to hold off from buying expensive brand items that are well above what I personally can afford (unless it’s on sale or if it’s something I’m dying to get it hahaha!). Till then, I see no shame in getting things that are affordable and cheap, with no particular brand. Just like what my Mum said “The value is not on how much it is, but in how you wear it”.

How’s the weather in your cities, am I the only one missing summer like crazy?

Thanks for visiting everyone!

I’ll see you all later this week with another outfit post.

Melbourne has always been one of my favourite places in Australia, the music, the people, the cute little alleyways, the fashion, the culture and THE FOOD!!! Oh don’t even get me started about the food!!!
I have only been there twice and both times I absolutely loved it!!!

For the longest time Melbourne was one of the few places I considered moving to. I always imagined moving there for my studies but obviously priorities and goals change over time and lets not forget having to consider the other half as well as the fam bam. Even still, it has never been far from my mind to possibly make the bold move. Until then, I’m more than happy to make excuses to continually visit :P

So with my home away from home in mind, I thought I would share a couple of fun snaps from mine and Chin’s trip there. I’ve also decided to go there again after my birthday in October YAY!!!

Since Melbourne’s weather has four seasons in a day, I found it fun playing dress up to cater to the crazy weather – Coat one day and dress the next. Walking around and exploring, we were definitely getting our tourist on, it was only fitting to choose comfort as the way to go. This meant sneakers, free flowing skirts, soft cotton and stretchy fabrics making winning combinations.

Thanks for visiting !!!

I’ll see you on Saturday with another outfit post :D

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY EVERYONE!!!

Today is the day that we are reminded about how special and amazing our mothers truly are. A day that we treat them with breakfast in bed, heartfelt words, kisses on the cheek and shower them with gifts.

For this Mothers day, fashion photographer Matt Irwin beautifully captures the gorgeous global brand ambassador Georgia May Jagger, playfully having fun on set with her legendary supermodel mum Jerry Hall. Both coming together for the Sunglass Hut “WOW MUM” Mother’s Day campaign, which has just recently launched globally in stores and online.

This campaign shows a more interactive shopping experience through the Sunglass Hut website, allowing you to video call your mum, letting her electronically try on the sunnies of her choice. You’ll never have to doubt if she likes it or not ever again, even though she says she loves it hahaha!

If you have a family like mine, spread apart in different countries or even if you are just minutes away from your mum, its such a great way to get a gift that she will really enjoy.

You can check out the sunglasses featured in the campaign and even give the new shopping experience a go on the Sunglass Hut website HERE!

Thanks again for visiting  and I hope you all have an amazing Mothers Day :)

LAN YU

Lan Yu’s bridal gowns were absolutely Stunning!

The gowns were displayed on elevated boxes through a live installation allowing the viewer to walk around the designs. A mix of live models and mannequins were used to display the gorgeous gowns. Each of the 12 gowns represented a star sign, all beautifully designed with intricate fabrication, delicate beading and lace. We had the pleasure to attend the Lan Yu after party where we were able to view the gowns in closer detail.

The designs were simply amazing, I loved every single gown and I especially enjoyed the interactive installation in contrast to the typical runway show.

I had the great pleasure to meet the insanely talented designer Lan Yu and she was just as gorgeous as her gowns; incredibly graceful and elegant.

JAYSON BRUNSDON

‘Rio’ A collection filled with jacquard and silk dresses, with shimmer tones of earthy colours; this is a collection I adore. Exotically wild with golds, coppers, sequences and feathers; designs that translates the fun and the tropical environment of Brazil.

It was truly a breath of difference compared to the designs I had seen throughout fashion week.

MACGRAW

Oh MACGRAW how I adore you!!!

The peter pan collars, the puffed sleeves, the polka dots, the stripes, the print on print, everything about this collection is GORGEOUS!
This collection was one of the few that I could see myself wearing everyday. Current, youthful, fun, relatable and cute, I simply must have it all hahahaha!

IXIAH

I have so much love for this label!!!

The amazing designer behind Ixiah, Krystel Davis never ceases to amaze.
I have followed Ixiah for some time now and WOW! It has grown into an astonishing label with such a unique aesthetic, standing apart from the rest.
Debuting for the first time in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Ixiah pulled out all the stops with their signature detailing, tribal aesthetic, incredible fabrication teamed with bold and strong silhouettes.

It was incredible!

AJE

Reflecting on Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Aje by far had one of the best displays. A live installation showcasing their designs through live models blissfully relaxing around and under a Sahara-like cabana.
Peekaboo sheer fabrics with lace and detailed floral beading, the designs were beautiful.
We were able to walk around the collection and look at the designs closely whilst champagne and canapés were served. Viewers were able to freely converse about the collection, it was an interesting change of environment compared to the intense atmosphere at a runway show.

SONG FOR THE MUTE

Song for the Mute closed the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week with a daring and edgy Men’s collection. Grey tones with black and white layered aesthetic teamed with ribbed and textured coats. It was also interesting to see Lupe Fiasco close the show and he did it with such attitude and swag that only a Rapper embodies.

Masculine, intense, dark and structured designs; it was a great way to end our first Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

WILL BE.

By William Brunton – Sydney

It was a great way to start the show with a men’s collection, the audience didn’t mind either hahaha!
Blocks and panels of basic black, white and grey used with a simplified print, which resembles stone paving. Masculine suit elements with casual street wear and slippers made an interesting and unexpected combination.
Though it was only men’s wear that was showcased I was pleased to hear that the collection is also available for women :).

ASANOVSKI 
Fatima Asanovski – Sydney 

The use of textural fabrication and the structural silhouettes was highly intriguing. Calculated geometric cuts, transparent pops, minimalistic design created a modern and futuristic aesthetic.

DIYANA KOSSO
(Self-Titled) – Sydney

Romantic prints with touches of peek-a-boo sheer, frills and florals, this collection was playfully girly, feminine, whimsical and cute. Especially loving the touch of red lipstick in contrast to the baby blues and whites.

GABRIEL LEE
(Self-Titled) – Sydney

Structured jumpers and jackets with white pearl embellishments, vibrant floral print design styled with matching hats and bags with sheer high socks; this collection was to die for! I loved everything about it, I could not think of one item that I would not love to have in my wardorbe.

OPHELIE
By Sean and Sheila – Singapore

Elegantly edgy and high class, this oriental gold and black collection inspired by the Japanese Yakuza and uniform element inspired structure, left a big impression leaving me speechless. The embroidery, the lace, the pin stripes, the different use of fabrics and the structured lines, every bit of the collection was perfect!

PAUL NATHAPHOL
(Self-Titled) – Singapore

Royal blues, bold reds and greens, deep plunge lines and layered peplums. Edgy and vibrant designs with a strong unified statement of patterns and fabrication. I especially loved the jewelled embellishments on the gowns.

SARA ALJAISM
(Self-titled) – Sydney

Lace and sheer free flowing gowns, elegant, romantic designs with such presence and strong feminine silhouettes. Delicate lace embroidery with metallic pops, gowns that glided down the runway with such ease.
