My style. It has always been a problem of mine whenever I'm asked to describe what my style is. Frankly, I'm not quite sure. It depends on my mood a lot–sometimes I just want comfy sweaters and end up being preppy, other times I feel edgy or girly. I'm very much drawn to the classic style with a little twist.
Shopping must. I'm very stingy when it comes to my clothing. It's something I live by. It gives me a chance to get my creative juices flowing for situations like "How to look expensive when your entire outfit costs not more than 500 pesos?" It also gives me a chance to DIY . I do most of my shopping at thrift shops.
Style icons. I love Audrey Hepburn, but who doesn't right? I also take inspiration from reading the blogs of Tricia Gosingtian, Kryz Uy, and Mayo Wo.
Stylish influence. My style was influenced by life experiences.
Closet colors. I have the whole color wheel in my closet, but I do have more blacks. Black is my go-to color for when I just can't seem to think of what I want to wear.
Fave accessory. My father's watch. It's a tad too big for me and that's just how I like it.
Never wearing. Probably fishnet stockings!
Trendy return. Anything from the '50s. I have always been and will always, always be a '50s lover.
Best bargain. A striped, long-sleeved shirt that looks like something Audrey Hepburn wore. It only cost me 20 pesos and no one will ever think that.
Vintage love. Plenty of my clothes are vintage. They've been around since my mother was still a teenager. And, who knows? Maybe some of the stuff I bought from thrift shops are even older.
