Sheer Sleeved Romper: Persunmall | Miu Miu-inspired Heels: Trunkshow | Gold Pouch: Tomato

I have always had this unbreakable habit of choosing black whenever it comes to clothes. Sometimes, it’s bordering on me being annoyed with myself! Haha. Well, it has always been a personal innate response when it comes to shopping. My rational on doing such is due to the color’s versatility, safety and class vibe. I must admit that there are times wherein I make a conscious effort to incorporate bright hues in my closet in order to have at least a bit of variety. Oh, such compulsion!

This piece that Persunmall had mailed recently is no exception. Aside from being black, its one-piece structure and sheer sleeves make it something that is easy and dressy enough to wear at events/fancy places. Aside from being hassle-free to wear, it also looks fab amidst the very minimal styling. This is perfect for those moments when you are in a hurry yet, must come out well dressed. I strongly suggest that you go get one as an addition to your wardrobe also.

Denim Top: Tommy Hilfiger (thrifted) | Tutu Skirt: YRYS | Shoes: Capital Vice | Bracelet: Landmark | Floral Wreath: gift, from Ryan

There is no doubt that summer is already here. Whenever I go outside, it always seems like I am wandering on a never ending sauna disguised as a street. I just thought that these long overdue post is very timely one to put in le blog. Floral wreath! Hello!

On another note, I must say that the release of VSCO’s new presets was such a good timing. These were edited using A4, which I can already regard as my favorite filter. It’s really amazing to know how people can come up with new applications that are easy to use and perfect for their target market (in this case, those artsy-minded/photograph crazy) folks.

On Test Shots and New Things

Shoes: S&H | Bag: Kelley (Ryan’s ) | Romper: from a bazaar | Skirt | thrifted

I am very much ecstatic to finally own a new camera which is now resting peacefully at the palm of my hands: a Fujifilm X20. Oh my. I never thought that I will be able to purchase one that soon (few months after investing on an Iphone 5s). Perhaps, let me just do a separate post for the Fuji love.

Yesterday, my sister and I took test shots within the neighborhood. I was itching to have a moment at a wall decorated with oh so lovely bougainvilleas. Finally, we were able to steal a few seconds to do it. Mission accomplished! In spite of the heat, rusty “posing skills”, roughly unperfected cam settings and nosy rural teens (Sorry not sorry, they were quite a pain to deal with.), it was a pretty good start! I hope to do better quality/artsy posts similar to these next time. So excited.

Glitteratti + A Valentine’s Sale

image

Last weekend, my boyfriend and I had a little shoot at a nearby sports complex. It was a good thing that the place was quite deserted. It made us feel comfortable to take these photos and for me to get away with being awkward in front of the cam at times. 

image

It’s been a while since I used this blouse. Hurhur.It’s just, I don’t know.. Too dressy? Look those sequins, man. SEQUINS. O.O Maybe I’ ll just use it again for another formal occasion. This was bought at SM Department Store- at 50% off. That was such a steal so yeah, I just had to take it home.

image

The perfect pair ankle strap heels are so hard to find. *rolls eyes* Whenever I scouted for one, those that I see were either: with straps too thin, having a heel height that is too high for me to walk on, unflattering, or out of stock. Huhuhu. 

I guess  seeing this baby at Capital Vice is such a stroke of luck! Honestly, I chanced upon this already maybe a month or two ago, but was hesitant to buy. I must be saving up for something else that time or weighed if it was just an impulse buy or not. Fast forward to today, that exact same pair is still there. I love how the heel is low and  the cut is just right. Yay! maybe it was meant to be. An issue that I have though is the material: Suede. 

I hate hate hate suede. It’s such a b**** to clean. It doesn’t help that I am always gravitating to shoes styles in this kind of material. -.- Oh well, that’s life.

On a different note, Valentine’s day is just around the corner! Gasp! Have you already  planned your surprise or gift to that special someone? It’s about high time to be mushy mushy and all. Hihihi.

image

Since this is a momentous occasion for you (Yes, you.) lovebirds. I think it is but an obligation to look our best. Girl, Persunmall would be a great help with regards to that, specially if you are into online shopping. Wait, there’s more. They are holding a Valentine Sale for selected items up to 50% off. High five!

For those who are currently single , don’t fret.  This may have been said 1000x times but for sure, this is true: True love waits. It will come when you least expect it. Cheer up! Buy gorgeous clothes and be fabulous! Who knows, maybe “he” may spot you one of this days. At least look your best. ;)                               

Moving forward, here are some of my top picks for your reference:

Daamn, I wish I could get this for myself. Unfortunately, I am living in a tropical country. Hahaha! I love how deep/ox blood red-ish this trench coat is. <3 Hmm, maybe I should call this Valentine’s red instead? Naah, I’m blabbing too much.  But seriously, if you live in a constantly cold city, go grab ‘em.

image

This is a no-brainer choice because it’s black and white. Hello? It’s goes well with anything! Also, I am a sucker for being OC with my stuff. The compartment in front makes reaching for small things such as lipstick, pen et. al. hassle free . I think I have to partner this with the red Valentine trenchcoat. 

image

There’s only one thing that came to my mind when I saw this:

image

SAILOR MOON

image

Bomber jacket!!!!! I am having a hard time in looking for one within my area. Well, I saw one last December. It was actually pretty affordable but the prints are not that pretty enough. :( I think this item is perfect with all those floral prints and the color. 

Hmm, that’s about it. I hope I was able to help you a bit there. Happy shopping! Enjoy the rest of the week and your V-day. I hope he surprises you big time.   :b

White Garden

Giordano leather jacket, Celine sandals, Charles & Keith bag, Corset top from Landmark, Skater Skirt from a bazaar.

Finally, the much-loved and anticipated month is here (December, Decembrrr or Decemblur. Whichever you like)! The weather is reminiscent of these photos from a Tagaytay trip last November. My siblings, nephew, sister’s boyfriend and I went out for a dose of joy ride.

This set was shot at Mushroom Burger (with a funny yet witty Mcdonalds-ish counter display). Outside, there was this motorcycle parking slot at a far corner adorned with pretty hanging white flowers. I just had to get my pictures taken there. #vainproblems

image

Moving on to what I wore, my leather jacket is the perfect armor for the chilly wind. I have always wanted to get one so this pick from Giordano is a great choice. Also, corset + skater skirt (yes, I am jumping into that skirt bandwagon) seems to be a no-brainer combo for me nowadays. It is a lazy dressing cheat that will still make you look put-together.

As you may have noticed, I have been tinkering some parts of my blog little by little. Finally, I had the energy to update this space again. I just got an Iphone 5s recently so I guess I have no excuse to not update on a regular basis. Hahaha.

Crossing my fingers that my last quarter of 2013 onwards would be nothing short of awesomeness, cyberspace and real-life wise. Tata!

Chill Pill

It was just one laidback Sunday. We tried using the camera of my sister’s Samsung Mega to take these shots. Impromptu much? Definitely. 

image

I just pulled off whatever it is that I can use as an outfit post.I came up with the usual tutu thingy. (Urgh, note to self: Girl, you are not a ballerina and in your mid 20’s. Give those kind of frilly things a break!). Yep, that’s me talking to myself on being a more mature dresser.Hahaha.

image

What I like the most here is that I finally have a corset top! Woot woot. Although I am not well “gifted” up there, I think that this thing suits me to a tee. Look at those pretty prints! *u* Props to Landmark for fab and affordable finds.

image

I would have opted for brown shoes but decided to just go for black booties instead. It somehow mellows down the “girliness” of the look. My bag is quite an old one from Charles & Keith. As for the accessories, I am currently obsessed with this sparkly bracelet. It seems to be peppered with gemstones that turn iridescently blue or green. Nice find!

Please bear with the randomness of this post. It’s only now that I got to have time in Tumblri-ng. Will just cap off this OOTD with an annoyingly pa-cute photo. Toodles! :b
