Fashion over comfort. My style is very laid back, simple and care-free. I love floral prints, denims shorts, and oversized tops. I also adore vintage clothing—they never go out of style. Accessorizing is also very essential to my style because simple outfits would look elegant and stunning if paired with the right accessories.
Shopping haven. I usually go to vintage/thrift shops, department stores and bazaars. I also love Topshop and Forever21.
Fashion designers. I love Michael Kors’ designs and apparels. For shoes, Jeffrey Campbell is the best!
Always wearing... Rings/Bangles.
Mom's care. My mother is my inspiration. She supports me in everything I do. She knows how to sew and helps me on what I should buy or what I should wear. She even repairs and alters some of the clothes for me.
Style idols. My favorite style icons are Nichole Ritchie, the Olsen twins, Serena Van der Woodsen and Vanessa Abrams of Gossip Girl, the famous fashion bloggers Rumi Neely from the fashiontoast.com, Tricia Gosingtian from triciawillgoplaces.tumblr.com, Cheyser Pedregosa from the walkingrecessionista.blogspot.com and Patricia Prieto from itspatriciaprieto.wordpress.com.
Fashion influence. My style is changing and and as of now the things that influenced my style are my fellow “lookbookers or chictopians”. I get great ideas from other users and I also get to share my own styles or ideas to them.
Neutral palette. Now I go for neutral colors or earth colors such as white, brown, tans, beiges and peach. They look good with most other colors. But when I accessorize I love to use bright colors.
The basic three. The basic white top, denim shorts and large pair of sunglasses!
Trend rebirth. I want the retro art or fashion back. The bright colorful patterns, floral patterns with full skirts and pompadours hairstyle would be fun.
Vintage owns. A lovely vintage black clutch bag from my lola. I thinks its 30 years or more. :D
