Mood dresser. My style depends on my mood. Sometimes I go girly and wear pieces that make me feel feminine like floral printed dresses and skirts. There are also times I’d go boyish and wear my trusty sneakers and quirky tops with rugged denims. But above anything else, I see to it that I feel comfortable and confident with what I wear because I’ve always believed that any outfit would stand out if you wear it with attitude.
Smart shopper. Department stores and thrift shops are my shopping havens. I love searching around and finding “fashion treasures” so I don’t really have a single favorite shop. There are tons of thrift shops that sell unique and very cheap (believe me when I say VERY CHEAP) pieces here in Davao. I always keep in mind that it’s not in the brand or price anyway; it’s in how you style your clothes. My mantra would be: Mixing and matching is the key to a fabulous wardrobe!
Fave fashion designers. My top 3 fave designers would be Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui and Betsey Johnson.
Always with... My trusty brown leather sling bag. It’s huge so I can keep all of my stuff in it and it's very versatile. It practically goes with anything I wear.
Inspired. I get inspiration from magazines, TV shows like Gossip Girl, and of course Lookbook.nu.
Style icons. The two Rachels I would say. Rachel Zoe and Rachel Bilson.
Young fashionista. As a child I've always loved dressing up. I can even remember having a pair of shoes that would match every outfit I had. My family had a clothing store way back so I grew up being conscious of what I wear all the time. I've also loved reading magazines so through that I get updated with the latest trends. Then, when I go shopping I look for pieces that would match these trends and most importantly my own sense of style.
A mix of everything. I have a lot of neutrals in my closet like blacks, beiges and whites but at the same time I invest in bright pieces that would make my outfit pop. But no neons please! Haha!
Fashion no-no.The biggest fashion faux pas for me is wearing a white tank top with colored underwear. I just think it’s too flashy.
Stylish three. The little black dress, a perfect white shirt and a pair of nice fitting jeans.
Trend rebirth. I love the fashion in the 50s. I’d be happy if the tailored look with all the fancy hats and gloves makes a comeback.
Vintage hand-me-downs.My lola loves bags so she’s my vintage bag treasure box. She gave me this vintage Ralph Lauren bag and I’m not really sure how old it is but I love it because it goes with any outfit.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
