Slacking It!

It’s time for another office outfit inspiration, and this time I’m using another classic….the pinstripe slacks.  Since slacks in general look mature, and then the pinstripe detail makes it all the more so, I decided to make use of a cropped panel top to make it more hip, young and fresh.


The downside that I can see with this outfit though is that I’d probably catch a “kabag” in a fully airconditioned office, haha!

That, or I’d get a “memo” form the HR department on my “tummy-revealing” office attire!  Oh no!  I’d better wear a blazer, just to be sure then =)

So that’s it for today.  Till then!

On The Edge

Sometimes there are things or events that leave us on the edge.  The week that was put me in quite a similar tone, but let’s leave the details out for now, as this isn’t a blog post about living on the edge.  But rather, it’s about this spaghetti strap top of mine that has multiple edges for its bottom end.


Got this top from a friend of mine (at a handsome discount) sometime ago but haven’t used it again after its initial debut  =P  Maybe it’s the fact that I’m quite on the edge these days that had me picking out this top to wear today.  Hmmm….

Anyways, paired my edgy top with a denim mini and accessorized with a criss-cross strapped thump and a sports cap.  It’s quite a game-day outfit (sans the heeled thumps), but since I’m quite on the edge, I think tiptoe-ing in heels is much suitable to complete my look then, haha.

That’s it for now.  Catch you later!

Don't Tux It In



I’ve never seen; never had, a tuxedo-style vest before, so when I chanced upon this baby, I couldn’t help myself from grabbing hold of it tightly lest somebody else get hold of it too.  Paranoid shopper, I was, I know.  Haha!

Now if you think about it, it’s really a natural reflex of us shopaholics….especially when an item is this fabulous and dare I say, unique?  What I love about this chiffon vest is not just its rather unique cut and style (with a crochet part and tux-style back), but its versatility as well.  It pairs nicely with shorts and pants and it goes equally lovely with skirts as well.

I paired mine with a plain spaghetti-strap top and a pair of dark denim shorts and then amped up my look with a pair of nude heels and some gold jewelry accents in the form of a chain necklace.  The outcome is this casual sexy outfit that’s perfect for a night out in town  =)

Gotta go out now.  Have fun, ladies!

Dress Down Days

Lazy  bed weather today.  But much like the rest of the world, we gotta get up and work.  So what do I wear when I need to work on bed weather days?  Here:


A light and loose denim dress is my usual bed-weather-ootd pick.  It’s comfortable and so easy to wear and pair.  So for a laid-back feel, I just wore a pair of sneakers and grabbed my handbag.  Pretty darn simple, right?  Not exactly ootd-worthy if I were to honestly say, but I guess my vanity can’t deal with not posting this look out, haha!

I gotta get going now.  Till the next post!!

Dolls

Shirts/tops with figurine or doll prints are all over the metro these days, so for today I’m joining the bandwagon and going out in this:


A sleeveless top with 2 fashionable dolls on print.  It’s a little bit Jap-ish, so I made sure to go with the feel of this top by pairing it with ¾-length gray leggings and a pair of red criss-cross wedges.  I wasn’t supposed to tie my hair but since it’s a bit hot and dry outside, I went with 2 pigtails and sported a cap  =P

That’s all for today!  Have a great day ahead!

Swirl

Swirl. Twirl.  That’s what comes to my mind when I’m wearing this:


It’s actually a skirt with a sheer panel overlay.  It kinda looks like a cage of some sort, if you think about it.  But nevertheless it exudes a sexy kind of appeal….not too literal, just the right amount of it, in my opinion.  The sheer mesh layer helps with the effect,, plus it’s perfect in hiding our not-so-perfect-and-flawless legs, haha!

Since the skirt has this attention-seeking vibe, I decided to go basic with my top by wearing a simple black tank top and accessorize in much the same color palette.

So what do you think of this look?  Can I swirl and twirl in glee now?  Much love!!

Wrap Me In Your Arms

What exactly is in cutouts that looks so sexy?  The subtle show of skin, mayhap?  Whatever it is, we ladies fall head over heels over apparel that has cuts here and there.  Can’t blame us, we all want to look and feel sexy every once in awhile, right?



So I’m wearing a cut-out sleeve top in black.  Fell in love with this tip the moment I laid eyes upon it.  The arm cutouts make the top look ultra-edgy and to be honest, I feel like Cleopatra in it!  No, seriously, the bondage top makes me feel, well, uh, quite seductive.  And while I have a bondage skirt in the same shade, I decided to pair this maroon wrap skirt instead.  It’s equally sexy, in my opinion, and it fits like a wrap.  Mummy wrap, anyone?  Haha!

Now since my outfit is quite striking enough, I’m toning down my footwear by pairing my outfit with a pair of nude heels.  Accessorized with a piece of lime-colored python print choker-like neckpiece and a tribal print clutch.  The prints of my accessories remind me much of an Egyptian queen and indeed, I feel like one  =P  Feelingera, haha!

So how do you like this look?

Raglan

The sporty vibe is trending these days in the international fashion scene.  Everwhere you can see outfit posts exhibiting anything sporty.  From swimwear latex fabrics, sports cap and number shirts down to athletic kicks, fashion-health-consciousness is key and big time these days.  So for today, I’m likewise sharing a sporty top ootd:


Wearing a gray raglan shirt with a pair of white shorts ands sneakers, and accentuated my plain ‘look’ with a floral cap.

Did you know that the raglan cut-style was previously worn by baseball players, but as fashion evolves, the style can now be seen in a number of garments; even in formal wear.  And did you know that this cut style helps give off a slimmer silhouette (particularly if one has broad shoulders) and equally slimmer arms. 

So there you have it, my ootd for today.  Till the next post, much love!!

Smooth Operator

Ever since liquid leggings hit our market over a few years back, it has become a staple inside my closet; with me particularly using them during cool rainy days.  And since it was drizzling for the most part of the day yesterday, I took my liquid leggings out for a spin:



Paired my Forever21 liquid leggings with a  loose pale pink top also from Forever21, and stepped into a pair of ultra sexy T-strap heels.  And since the top is shapeless, I decided to add a checkered polo and use it as my waist-cincher….to add some curves and to give my outfit a little more texture since both my top and pants are in the plain color scheme. 

Added a pair of sunnies for effect in this outfit shot, hehe.

Have a smooth sailing week ahead!  Much love!!

Tat Chic!

Just how do you dress up a pair of tattered leggings?  How about a chic loose top like the one I have on:



A simple basic white top does wonders, right?  I mean, even tattered leggings could look so polished and chic when paired with it!  And that is also the reason why fashion stylists (and dare I say, all of us stylists) would often recommend to have a simple / plain white top in one’s closet.

Now by pairing a piece of casual leggings with a polished long-sleeve top and basic pumps, I’ve made my look ‘that chic’ or in this case ‘tat (tattered) chic’  =P

And oh, used a boho-type belt to cinch my waist and to draw my loose top a little closer together.   Accessorized simply with a long chain necklace and a faux-python leather clutch

So there you have it, another simple style inspiration for you guys!  Hope you like it!  Much love!
