Flexibility is key. My style's flexible—eclectic, Harajuku, vintage, boho, classic, rock, or kinda neurotic. It does not stop with my outfit rather it reflects to my lifestyle as well—from the hairstyle I'm going to wear, the makeup I'm going to put on, the music I'm going to listen to, the things I'm going to do and to the extent that it also influences the food I want/ cook.

Shopping time. Here in the Philippines, I usually shop at Rustan's, The Ramp, Mimi, Culte Femme, Tomato, and Freeway. Like everyone else, I love Topshop, Zara, MNG, and Aldo.† Whenever I'm in Japan, I go to Uniqlo, Comme de Garcons, J-Honey, Glacier, Shimamura, and my favorite Cinema Club. I also do ukay-ukay in Tagaytay (by the influence of my best friend Daphne Galvan).

Favorite fashion designers. Locally: Kate Torralba, Twinkle Ferraren, and Mich Dulce. Internationally, Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang.

The period to an outfit. A fabulous bag that perfectly matches.

Inspired. I look up to fashion magazines and Internet sites. Inspiration is everywhere actually. A piece like a hat, Harajuku girls, a girl or guy that just passed by in front of you, and your favorite TV show (Gossip Girl, 90210, America's Next Top Model).†

Audrey-Lover, Twiggy-dresser. I love Audrey Hepburn so much but usually I'm a Twiggy-dresser. I love loud and colorful outfits but recently I'm trying classic outfits.

Style influences. My favorite music and artists really influence me. For example, I love Gwen Stefani and her Harajuku style and Taylor Swift and her country/ boho style. Music and fashion go together for me.

A rainbow in my closet. My closet is popping colors. However, I rarely wear brown.

Never wear. I have never worn wide leg jeans, I don't know why...
My classic three. I think I could always trust: black wayfarers, little black dress, and flats.

Comeback trend. Lolita! I know it's quite on Topshop right now and the Japanese have already made their own Lolita clothing trade mark but this trend perfectly suits my style and personality.
