Classic with a twist. I adore very structured and tailored pieces mixed with more modern and quirky ones. I enjoy working around great vintage finds and interpreting them into my own style.
Thrift on the mountains. Most of the time I shop anywhere, I'm not at all brand conscious. One place in particular though that I love is this huge ukay-ukay in Tagaytay. It is where I find some of the best pieces in my closet that get the most attention. I also love clothes hunting in department stores; be it Robinsons, SM or Rustan's.
Fashion designs love. I'm in awe over the designs of Hannah MacGibbon for the brand Chloe. Their winter collection makes me wish that it would snow in the Philippines. In contrast to that, I also love the edgy designs of Gwen Stefani and how she makes unconventional pieces classy and hip.
High end. I find that my staples are high-waist shorts or skirts. I can pair them with a simple white shirt and I automatically have a chic outfit.
Mom's style. My inspiration, without a doubt, is my mother. Her closet is my gold mine. Most of my pieces are from her and it amazes me how her style has transcended through time. She lives on through me everyday life through my sense of style and love for her.
Style goddess. My style icon would definitely be Connie Cao, the creator of the blog, K is for Kani. Her looks are just so well put together. I find her style genius.
Pastel closet. More on neutral colors such as white, black, and gray. I'm also obsessed with nude colors such as flesh tones and pale pinks. For pops of color, I've been really into teal lately.
Animal lover. You'll never see me real animal fur or real leather. I love animals and I’d never want to hurt them for fashion.
Stylish three. The basic white tee, colored cardigans, pumps.
Neverland. Probably Peter Pan collar shirts but I think it's already made its comeback.
Closet full of vintage. I've owned my mother's entire closet since her passing. All her pieces are surprisingly in fashion today and are probably a couple to three decades old.
