Versatile. You can say my style is very eclectic as I don't limit myself to just one particular look. Most of the time it jumps from boho to edgy but it's always downtown chic. My usual look is put together but it still has this playful laidback vibe.
Cheap shopper. I can shop anywhere and everywhere! Like I said, my style is generally a mash-up of things I find interesting so I'm very open to different brands. I love shopping in Bangkok, bazaars, thrift stores, and of course, our clothing line Peace Love Fashion. As for shoes, Parisian is on top of my list with their trendy yet affordable styles.
Fave fashion artists. Right now, it's Haider Ackermann. That guy is pure genius!!! Locally, Jun Escario and Pablo Cabahug.
Accessorize! I always wear rings or bangles or a watch with my outfit. I seldom leave that part of my body accessory-free.
By the readers. I find inspiration everywhere - from a song, to a photo, to the people I see everyday. Fashion magazines are deep wells of fashion inspiration. So are style blogs and online fashion communities. And of course, fashion week and runway shows. Lastly, the readers of my blog inspire me to continue playing with fashion.
Style gurus. Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Alexa Chung. I really adore these brits as they personify downtown chic.
Guide of a mentor. I believe working under stylist extraordinaire Luis Espiritu has influenced my style the most. I became more fearless in fashion. In fact, it was only when I was under his wing that I started wearing heels (and now I'm an addict!). Being surrounded by people from the fashion industry who are skilled, knowledgeable, and serious in their craft is just so inspiring! I'm really fortunate to be working in our team.
Basics and then some. My closet's palette is a little bit of everything with a lot of blacks and whites.
Never ever! Never say never but my pet peeve is the rubber slide slippers you get from sporting goods stores.
The basics. A good pair of jeans, little black dress, and CONFIDENCE.
Peace yo! I'm really happy with the 70s comeback. I am so in love with the carefree hippie vibe!
Bags from the past. Vintage Dior bags my mom received from her ex-boyfriend. I love the history of those bags. I love them the most among all my vintage finds. :)
