Fashion says it all. I'm a really big fan of fashion but over the years I've accumulated so much clothes that I really don't know which ones I should keep and which ones I should give away. It sounds like I have a lot that are actually up-to-date with today's trends. Sometimes I absolutely love the thrill of finding a key piece that costs lot less than it looks. This time, I'm gonna show you my outfit which I found from my wonderland closet (I hope you like it! *bubble-pop*)

I'm wearing a cocktail dress  because I want something knee length or below the knee would be all right and even on the mini side as long as it is not so short and the dress itself is catchy and elegant. To look formal, I paired it with a vest that would compliment the color of the cocktail dress with a little accessory on it. What do you think?

I always advise for for more formal occasions to overdress rather than to under-dress. That doesn't mean you have to dress like you are going to a ball but you can never be faulted for making an effort.

Accessories are the easiest way to update your wardrobe. You'll find a variety of reasonably priced ones from a department store or from a thrift store. My advise, go for the affordable ones! Just be creative and don't be afraid to experiment with colors.

Hello readers!!! It's been a while since my last post and I'm really sorry if I missed to update my blog. I just don't want to interrupt my week of relaxation, nesting and serenity. Anyway, I'm back and here is my new outfit of the day. Colorful and simple and I prefer to wear this since the weather is good and perfect for my mood. 
This yellow lace tee from Forever21 is one of my favorites. It's very cool and can brighten up my day! Did you see my bra? What I'm wearing is from Wacoal, very comfortable and supportive. I am a petite person but I don't have troubles in using bras as long as the quality is good.These pieces that I do keep are my favorites that are more branded items which I take care of well as they are fashionable but also timeless pieces.
Glad I have this wrist watch from Lucky Brand which is a good addition to what I'm wearing. Lucky I am!!!! *slack-jawed*
This pink denim shorts from BNY is universally flattering. Shorter lengths make your legs longer, while still covering problem areas like the upper thigh.For the most flattering look, keep fullness under control (slimmer-legged shorts will make your legs more slimmer too.)

I frequently wear heels and I noticed these little red veins on my feet that stop somewhere in my shin area. They're not that unsightly but I'm bothered. Someone told me that there are spider veins and it shows my legs are straining from heels and blood circulation is affected. (I hope in time the veins will subside *sigh*) So much for that, I just love this pink pump heels from Forever21 that is relaxing and not that uncomfortable to wear. What do you think about my look?

Annyonghaseyo!!! I just wanted to share to you how creative I am in terms of fashion this past few weeks (Hahaha..Seriously I'm not, but for all my timid evasiveness I can be feisty when pushed to the limit) Everything is perfect because I had with me a great person who used to be my motivator and my counterpart. We get along so well that I love how my outfit turned out to be like this. I know, I know, it sounds like provocative and honest but I really want to pursue it all the way without disguising my true motives.
Here it is, what I am wearing today is one of my favorite dresses at my closet.  A tiger-skin maxi dress that fit my shape. (similar here and here ) As I remembered, it's my second time to wear it since I worn it when i went to my town place where my high school friends can't stop staring at me. Maybe because I turned into a lady now not to mention how stubborn and weird I was during my high school days. Gosh! It's so embarrassing how everyone treated me like I'm an idiot. (Heeyy!! I'm still a girl with a golden heart. *sigh*) Luckily, I earned a lot of  appreciation to those people who really believe in me.  So, I'll give them with my best SHOT!!!!  Tsk..Tsk..Tsk..
This black clutch was my friend's gift and I love how it matches with my outfit. Simple and easy to bring with when you want to go to a party where you can put all your belongings. (similar here) Oh oh! we girls should always bring a makeup with us because we never want to end up being left alone with  painful bumps and bruised egos. Ouchh!!!
Wondering what I'm thinking?? Well, you're not going too far cause I know I look uncomfortable and  I felt very shy when we did this shoot. I had mixed emotions to the point  that I was not able to concentrate well with my photographer at all. One word, I'm super duper HUNGRY! (Hahahaha. I'm just being honest.)

I  love the combination of these yellow with color green flat shoes I bought from Metro Department Store that helps me stay posh and classy for a casual style. This black gold cute and pretty headband added me some charm. You ca easily wear it at any time you find most convenient and let you look more chic. You can also actually match it with a sheer top, mullet skirt and strap wedges. Over accessories is a big no-no! Sometimes I prefer not to wear a lot of bling-bling. Just be confident of what you are wearing and everything well turn to be perfect! What do you think fashionistas?

Before I end this, here's some good news to all of you my readers. Taaddaaa!!! It's a give away alarm and I just want to tell you guyz that starting next week, I'll gonna show you more of my favorite and personal style and win it for free! (I want to hear your scream and shout..Whhooohhh!!!) Just be one of my followers and be the lucky winner. I'll make sure to keep in touch with you. Please keep updated and thanks for dropping by! Kiiimchiiii!!!! :)

Hola! My first attempt to be super dainty! So do I pass or fail? Haha. It was really a good day, no traffic congestion and Mr. Sun smiles brightly. This picture is actually a stolen shot but I decided to include this cute thing, its just ME. Anyway, I love this embellished dress with lots of sequence and glitters. This is a Chinese collar dress with sheer part on the chest part. On the first glance, you think that the fabric is itchy or uncomfortable but its the opposite! :) 
This dress is truly a deceiver, a conservative look infront and tadaaaaa! a seductive back-revealing style!! See how the lines were perfectly cut to create a sophisticated look. I truly love clothes with overly detailed parts, its just worth wearing. 

This is a closer look with the Chinese collar and the sheer part. Lovely sight, right? :) See how this dress is meticulously done. *insert ooh's and aah's*
I opted to wear a silver wrist watch just a little touch of classy. 
To add with the classic look, I paired the dress with a black pumps. I forgot where I got this shoes, I think this was a gift from my mother for my graduation. Hahaha.
The complete look is really astounding *insert claps* This dress definitely defines the a half conservative seductive ME. Hahaha. So that's it. Have a great day ahead :)

Sundays are the best days of the week! New place and new discoveries with friends and families. It's a perfect day to celebrate like going to the beach, having a picnic, watching movies or any other recreational activities that you would surely love.Because I super love Cebu as the best place in town, I decided to spend my weekend in Mactan Newtown. I was looking forward to have a peaceful and entertaining weekend and I was very happy because my friends were there with me the whole time. Ahh, best word that comes first to my mouth when I went there was, "awesome!" For the record, it was my first time to visit Lapu-Lapu City and I find it so great and relaxing. I think, everyone deserves to have a break because it is always exciting for a lot of us to run away from a lot of things and have some peace of mind.
For a more refined and comfy look, I opted to wear this Gray tank top from SM Department Store and a hand-me-down ripped shorts. Thanks to my ever dearest sister for the shorts *wink* 
My comfy shoes are from Native. They are so comfortable, it is lightweight and its like your walking on bare foot. They can also be worn in the beach and some stroll in the mall.
You see how cute this wrist watch? I can't even get my eyes off it. This white and pink Juicy Couture wrist watch is surely a must have. It's a combination of uber cuteness and girly feel. 

See this cutie patootie bag? :)) See? Are you green with envy? Lucky me, I just got this from a thrift store. A versatile piece that suits any outfit. Horray for today! :)
Apparently, this look was very cozy. See how I pulled all these things in a jiffy (Because my friends were so excited to get pictures of me. Haha. Okay, okay. Nuff said!) Ergo, my day turned out REALLY great. Like ten times great! We had sumptuous meal and girly night talk in my friend's house who is living in Lapu-Lapu. How was your weekend guys? :)

It's the second time around for this handsome, cute, charming and bubbly Korean superstar/actor Lee Min Hoo oppa for his "My Everything" World Tour first-ever Concert that will happen  on July 6, 2013, Saturday 8 pm at the Mall of Asia Arena. After his successful fan concert last November 2012, the phenomenon Boys over Flowers and City Hunter star has come to his way as an recording artist, returns to Philippines for a one night only concert. It's pretty obvious, everyone are really excited about it. 
I'm always be a fan of Min Hoo because I find him so cute and I love those killer smile that would melt my heart everytime I saw him on television. Well, I have enjoyed a lot of his dramas because he was one of the best actors who made me fall in love. He's very versatile and full of surprises. So far so good, I'll always love his fashion...still the best! He always blew me away with those acting skills and absolutely he is the coolest guy ever!

Actually, I discovered Korean drama by chance and one of my favorite drama ever is the Boys over Flowers that everyone were crazy about it. I was addicted to it that I used to start watching other dramas from then on. I noticed that Koreans were really good on drama. The way they portray their characters and they were surreal, touching and so funny. I have always imagined that if I were meet a famous person like Lee Min Hoo, I wouldn't go crazy and just be like I would go insane to the point where I would pass out. He's one of my ultimate crushes in Korea. I don't know what he's like in person but I bet he's awesome and nice. I wish I can see him in Korea soon! Hahaha
So guys, I know Min Hoo oppa will try his best to entertain us a lot on his upcoming concert. Grab your tickets now before it will sold out. Visit www.smtickets.com for more info and update. For VVIP tickets, call Wilbros Live at 374-9999. AJA!!!!!

More often than not her breakfast consists of a coffee en route to the subway, but she do love when she's able to sneak in a working breakfast at her favorite Brooklyn restaurant, Frankies 457, in Carroll Gardens. She's been eyeing this Jill Stuast dress on Meredith Melling Burke for a few months and was thrilled to find it at Huricane Sandy sample sale in November since then it's become an xpected staple in her other pants-dominated wardrobe. She don't like to feel too frill,so combining it with her vintage red fox-fur coat and a pair of over-the-knee Maxmara boots keeps her feeling more Penny Lane than prim. She tend to shy away from super-bright colors, but the cool lilac on her Chloe bag feels close enough to a neutral for her comfort zone.
She only wear jewelry that caries personal significance and keep the same pieces on everyday. Her claddagh ring is an heirloom from the Irish side of her family and she haven't gone a day without wearing it in ten years. Her signet ring--probably the most precious item that she own was a gift from her parents on her 21st birthday and is a testament to their perennial good taste. For her college graduation, she bought herself and her bestfriend Julia matching gold knuckle rings--their experience at the University of Chicago was far from traditional, so it only felt fitting to share rings that sit in an atypical place.
Designers are showing their pre-fall collections at the moment, so a large part of her day is spent visiting studios for presentations. Here she was at the gorgeous Sea loft on Canal Street, two of her favorite young New York designers--Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini create really charming and affordable clothing that doesn't sacrifice any amount of cool for the price. Before seeing Isabel Marrant Fall 2012 show, she would have been hard pressed to try on a ruffled skirt, let alone to invest in one. However, she always had a fascination with American and how Isabel translates it with her trademark French girl slouch. This skirt and top will easily be wearable during the summer---and she love that, together, they look more like a dress. The silver lining of losing her original cherished leather jacket in Paris was finding this even better version in Hippy Market, the Marais's veritable treasure trove of vintage.
This cool chain and fox collar by Jennifer Fisher is just right for cold days when a long coat doesn't feel appropriate. For better or worse, she was completely addicted to her iPhone. Dependency issues aside, it's allowed her to downsize her massive totes to more streamlined clutches like this uber-chic, dove gray version by Proenza Schouler. She wear the same three bracelets day in and day out, all of which bear sentimental value. Her mother bought the simple silver bangle on the beach in Belize during a family vacation, and she have worn it for close to two decades. Her ID bracelet was an eighteenth birthday gift from her parents, and she's planning on adding an Ann Dexter-Jones ID bracelet with their names engraved to go with this one, which has hers. Her David Yurman cable cuff is a family tradition--both her mother and her grandmother wear the same one.
She had a serious crush on these Isabel Marrant boots since she first saw them go down the runway, and it's now hard to find her out of them. She spend generous portion of her week running around to market appointments and out doing showroom pulls, and these shoes provide the emotional satisfaction of a high heel with the physical practicality of a flat.
She lived in New York her whole life and she's about to embark on only her third move--crossing the river from Brooklyn to Chinatown. While her quite familiar with her new neighborhood, she's been making more and more trips there to scout things in between market appointments. After some persuasion from her coworkers,she's recently come around to white jeans and definitely prefer wearing them in the winter when they feel less expected. J Brand makes the best she's found so far. This particular coat by Theory is the perfect combination of her preferred color palette of neutrals, and it spruces up a simple tan's sweater by The Row. She's recently upgraded her Ray-Ban aviators to this Celine pair, and the olive shade makes her feel like she's adding color to her wardrobe.
She's starting to collect Claire Vivier bags--her price points are unbearable, and the bags are both classic and charming. Without a doubt, these Rag & Bone are her most worn pair of shoes. They look just as good with a bare leg as with pants, and they never make her feel over-or uderdressed.
They're staring to work on some of her spring swim stories, so Matthew, who designs the perpetually chic Charlie by Matthew Zink line, came by theVogue offices to show her his latest collection. She love the mixed stripes on this Chinti and Parkers swear--it's a great twist on a clasic for a pattern-shy dresser like herself. And, these cropped leather flares from Elizabeth and James encapsulate her favorite new silhouette and showcase her staple Givenchy sandals.
She like polish and elevation that symmetrical matching outfits cuffs add to a more casual outfit. This particular set is by YSL, but some of her favorite pairs come from classic High Street stores such as Forever21 and H&M. They're made for a Wonder Woman moment.
If she had to choose one outfit to wear daily, this would probably be it. She break out these oversize Tibi trousers at least a few times a weak--with a sweater tucked in for the office, a beat-up tee for contrast on a night out, or this silk racer-back Tibi tank for dinner and after-work drinks at the Bowery Hotel--her (much more glamorous) home away from home.
When it comes to makeup, she adamantly subscribe to the philosophy that less is more--usually she just curl her eyelashes and air-dry her hair. Even in the midst of the nail-art craze, the wildest she got was trying out clear shellac manicures. However, this hefty vintage collar has inspired her to seek out more sooty-eyed, Bianca Jagger--esque moments--with varying degrees of success.
She tried tuxed coats in the past, but, as someone who trends to shy away from accenting their shoulders. She found herself largely unwilling to wear them. But the tailoring on this one--which lends it a rare balance between structure and movement--has proven to be just the remedy for her jacket malaise. Originally, she had this tuxed coat from The Row on her Christmas list, but it turns out she's a bit more anxious than she had anticipated. It's become such a fixture,however, that it would have been worth any wait.
