Experimental. My usual outfit would have to be somewhat girly with a bit of an edge. I don't really have a certain style. I think it's fun that way since I get to try different trends and styles.
Shopping haven.I usually shop at The Ramp, SM, Freeway, and Trunkshow. Right now I'm really into online shopping for vintage and thrift finds. 
Fave designers. My top 3 faves would have to be Monique Lhuillier (Pinay pride!), Donatella Versace, and Badgley Mischka. 
Pucker up! I never leave the house without my red/bright pink lipstick! I am really pale without it and I think it adds an extra oomph to a  plain outfit. 
Inspired. I'm inspired by a lot of things but I usually get inspiration from fellow bloggers (on Chictopia and Lookbook) and from my mom. Cliche but true. My mom has always encouraged me to pursue fashion and the arts. We both love fashion!
Style idol. I have to say it's Karla Deras of Karla's Closet. Her style is fearless, adventurous and always classy. I also love that she embraces femininity by wearing clothes that accentuate the female body no matter how some people view her as being pear-shaped. I also love that she is not a moviestar or a celebrity but she dresses up like one!
Old glam and mom. My style is influenced by different trends, old hollywood glam, and anything artsyfartsy. The biggest influence on my style would have to be my mom though. Growing up, I watched her sashaying in pretty clothes, spraying tons of hairspray on her hair and bangs, wearing leggings, padded blazers. and white wide-legged jeans. She's the one who first introduced me to fashion. 
Black and white. I love monochromatic palettes. It's perfect for effortless styling and it goes perfectly well with my bright-hued lipsticks! 
Never ever! You'll never see me wear bright spandex-like leggings!
The basics. White button-down, perfectly fitting jeans, classic LBD
From the baul. I just recently dug up vintage blazers and dresses from my mom's old cabinet! They're prolly 10 years old or more.
