Whatnot. My style is quite a mixture of everything. Basically, it all depends on my mood really which is why I find it hard to label or categorize my style, it's just MY style, very ME. I can however describe my style by stating what it's not. My style isn't and never will be goth, emo and most of all, over the top and tacky.
Shopaholic. Topshop! Half of the clothes I own are from Topshop! It's insane how much I love Topshop. Aside from that, I also like to shop at H&M, Zara, the Archaeology wing at the Powerplant Mall, some of the stores over at Serendra and Greenbelt 5 . Oh, and I also love bazaars, really great finds there. If only we have American Apparel and Forever 21 here, they'd surely be included in this list too haha.
Favorite designers. When it comes to clothes, currently, I'm loving Marc Jacobs. Also Christophe Decarnin for Balmain and Alexander Wang.
Moody me. Me! Haha kidding aside, I don't think there's really anything that's always part of my outfit, since as I've said, my style is moody so I like to change and spice things up from time to time.
Brit love. Mostly just people or stuff that I see on TV, on the Internet, or in magazines. And also UK/British fashion (that's why I love Topshop so much haha).
Style icons. Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Nicole Richie, Rachel Bilson, Lauren Conrad and Vanessa Hudgens. I don't really think they have the classic icon status like Coco Chanel or whoever but I think they are icons of our generation's fashion now and I like how they dress up.
Style influence. Various things, my travels, the people I meet, the things I learn.
Basics and brights. Lots of white, gray, black and all the different shades of blue, plus bold colors such as purple, green and yellow. Come to think of it, I think beige is the only color I really try to avoid except for bottoms.
Never ever! Pants that are bitin; chunky belts that are fully studded. Also, anything indecent like a see-through top over, say, just your bra or something like that. And anything inappropriate, like wearing furry boots and thick scarves in our literally hot country.
My top 3. Black strapless or sleeveless a-line dress, black pumps and Chanel 2.55 black purse
Pad attack. Shoulder pads! Hahahaha come to think of it, it's not impossible to make it work and look good.
Vintage finds. A lot from my mom actually. Most of them are accessories like bracelets/bangles and belts. They're mostly from the '80s I think. And from time to time, I'd steal her old luxury/branded bags haha actually some of them have already found their way into my closet since she hardly uses them anymore.
