Earn My Stripes

Have you ever tried wearing a jumper dress to work?  I had.  Anyone got a problem with that?  I mean, whoever said that one can’t wear a jumper to the office anyway?!

Well, at least I chose a jumper dress that is suitable for office wear.  No loud prints, no flimsy fabric, and definitely no showing of too much skin!  That’s why I made sure to pair my jumper with another office classic….the long-sleeve blouse!  I chose a pinstripe pattern in monochrome to match and contrast with my plain black jumper.  It’s quite a conservative number, so it’s very office appropriate.  
Gotta get going now.  Have a good start this week!  Much love!

F*ck Off, Boyfriend

I never realized that boyfriend jeans could be so damn comfortable and so f*cking fashionable, that is, until I got myself one. 

What I love about this pair of boyfriend jeans is its floral waistband; a little femininity on a cut that’s practically loose and rugged.  And oh, I love the fact that it is high-waisted as well!  Paired it with this floral statement shirt that says “Fuck Off”!  It’s kinda brusque, I know, and that is why I decided to try to look and pose like I’m rather p*ssed, haha!  Did I get the look right?  =P

Anyways, while a pair of sneakers or loafers would do the trick of completing the look, they’re not exactly my type.  ‘Coz I for one, like to look a little feminine….and that is why I chose high heels instead.  And oh, I added a midi box bag too….para girly!  It’s actually my personal style….to have a touch of femininity to my every look  =)

So what do you think of this look?

Street Beat

I’m feeling drawn towards street style today.  Maybe it’s the effect of the Kpop music videos that I’ve been watching over the TV this morning, haha!  But anyway, here’s my street style take today:

Took out my Uniqlo houndstooth-printed leggings for a spin.  Have been dying to wear them but the weather and my work assignment hasn’t really been that cooperative, so it took some time for this one.  Paired it with a shirt that says “Never Look Back” and which has really wide cut armholes.  Kinda spunky, this shirt.  Matched my outfit with a pair of Lacoste sneakers, which have been with me like forever yet they’re still so comfy and durable!  Sulit!

And of course, what street style outfit would it be if there wasn’t a snapback cap, right?  So I got mine in this bright neon-orange color!  Now I look pretty street, don’t you think?  =)

Catch you on the next, peeps!

Number 65

I was browsing through some Korean online shops the other day and I’ve noticed that most of these sites (if not all of them) are selling Number Shirts!  Apparently, there’s a growing trend in Korea these days to look sporty.  You can actually note it too in most of their latest Kpop music videos….from baseball caps to soccer socks and rubber soles, it’s a sports fanatic haven in Korea these days  =)

And since I want to be ‘in’ on the trend, I scouted for a number shirt to call my own.  While I usually browse online catalogues, I don’t usually buy from them.  I don’t know, I’m still the traditional buyer who likes to see-touch-and-feel before making a purchase.  Besides, I’m quite the thrifty buyer, so I definitely love bargains.

So yesterday, I spotted a number shirt that I like and brought it home for some few outfit inspiration shots.  So here is my blog’s #lotd (look of the day):

Paired my gray & white number 65 shirt with white shorts for consistency.  Threw in a pair of charcoal gray thigh-high socks with my sneakers and Adidas cap for that sporty look.

So whatcha guys think of this look?

Mind Game

You know what my shirt reminds me of?  Inkblots.  Yes, for some reason, I think that the diagram on my shirt looks much like an inkblot figure.  Perhaps it’s the way the dots are formed, or perhaps my  mind is just messing up with me, haha!

So anyway, I decided to wear a black sleeveless crochet underneath my inkblot shirt instead of my usual bandeau top.  The crochet inner that I had on gave my top a bit more texture, and don’t you just adore those V-cut ends?  I do!  And just so that those ends are displayed prominently, I hiked up my shirt and knotted it  =P

Paired my top with denim shorts and mustard-colored cork wedges, and hooked up a cap unto my belt holder.  Threw all my essentials into my trusty black satchel and I’m off for the day!

So, how do you guys like this look?  I hope it’s not playing with your mind  =)

A Layer Of Sweetness

I don’t have a taste for sweets.  Ever since a kid, I’ve always turned down candies / desserts offered to me.  Yes, I know, I’m weird.  But while I may not have any sweet tooth, I’m pretty much a sweet girl naman (kung hindi galit, haha!) and often times I go for sweet choices / picks like this one:

The tiered top I have on reminds me of a layer of inverted cupcake foils, haha!  And since it’s such a sweet-looking top, I acted cutesy for this outfit shot  =P

It’s a rather simple getup (top + shorts + heels + bag); with just a little jewelry for today.  I made sure of that so that I wouldn’t drown out the sweetness of my top  =)

So there you have it ~ a little layer of sweetness to go =)  Hope you all have a nice day today!  Much love!

Keeping It Casual

Basic Shirt + Jeans.  That is our staple outfit here in our country.  In most occasions and even at fashion events, there would always be that someone who would be in that getup.  Not that I have anything against the usual jeans-shirt-combo, but there are times when I believe that you need to dress it up a little and look a little more presentable than looking like you just pulled whatever it is that’s on top of your closet pile.  Haha. 

Now for those occasions that don’t require much formalities, there are ways of dressing up the jeans-and-shirt combo so that it’ll come out looking chic and fasyon!  And one of those ways is by dressing up the combo with a good blazer and some killer heels; much like what I did here:

I’m wearing rough denim pants with a basic shirt….plain boring, huh? 
So, I made sure to jazz up my outfit then with my blazer and my pair of pointy pumps.  The blazer and the pumps helps make the rugged look a bit more polished and chic.  And oh, I added a bowler hat to my look to help make my outfit look well-put-together.  Accessorized simply with an amulet necklace, and there I’m all set to attend an event  =)

Till the next post!

Sheer Pleasure

This is going to be another sheer panel entry today. 

Nope, no contest going on around here, but rather, I’m referring to another top that’s similar to what I had on the other day….a sheer panel blouse.

I know some of you might already be blurting out a bored “not again” but forgive me, sheer panels are just my latest addiction  =)

For today’s outfit shot, I wore a white-and-mint panel top and paired it with drawstring navy shorts.  Accessorized with a pair of printed pumps and a soft clutch in the same shade.

Now looking closely, the top looks quite formal (especially since the fabric is relatively similar to those being used in our traditional barongs), so I made it look a little casual by wearing it with shorts.  Coz after all, I’m simply having dinner with friends, so I don’t need to dress so formally.  Presentable, would do  =)

So anyway, it’s a sheer pleasure doing this blog post today.  I hope it was for you as well.  Much love!

Sheer Panels

You don’t need to bare a lot of skin just to look sexy.  These days, there are just so many cut styles that offer a glimpse of skin without having to reveal too much.  And that is why sheer panel clothing is such a hit these days.  And that is also why I just had to have these for my outfit shot today:

A sheer white panel top with a sheer panel black-and-white puff skirt!  Such a lovely combination, don’t you think?  The look is a bit girly adorable yet very much womanly sexy as well!  The sheer panels give off that demure appeal…titillating the senses, if I might add.  Just a little bit come hither  =P  Well, don’t they always say to leave a little for the imagination?  Hehe.

That’s all for today.  Much love, everyone!

Minty Fresh

What happens when you wear a mint-colored garment?  You feel minty-fresh, of course!!  Haha!  So babaw! I know it seems that way, but truth is, the colors that we wear sometimes really affect our mood or disposition for the whole day.

And that is why I picked light and minty-freshie garments for today….because I would want this day to be as such; after all, it’s just the start of the week and we sure want it to start light and fresh, right?  =)

So there, here’s hoping for a minty-fresh start!  Much love, everyone!
