  1. My no-fail style equation: The classic style combo for me would be a basic top, a pair of ankle-length pants, low cut sneakers, and silver wrist wear from Pandora.
  1. My go-to brands: Zara and Topshop are stores I can never resist!


  1. Colors that make my heart skip a beat: I usually gravitate towards neutral colors. But recently, I've been obsessed with all things olive green and peach.
  1. Fashion trend I can't ever live without: I will always love black culottes that end just right above the ankle! It's a flattering piece that makes the body look longer.

  1. My beauty-must-haves: I love Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian, the classic NARS blush in Orgasm, and of course, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen.
  1. Beauty trend I simply don't understand: Tattooed makeup. I'm all for natural beauty.

  1. I can't leave the house without: Definitely my phone!
  1. Fave shopping tip: Always invest in quality basics! Before purchasing an item, think of how it could be paired with the other items in your closet.

  1. Must-follow: I admire the style of The Line Up on Youtube. If you're looking for a beauty fix, head over to @violette_fr and @allanaramaa!
  1. Style philosophy: I believe that confidence comes when you are comfortable in what you wear. A classic cut, pleasing colors, and no frills.

Simplicity is key!

  1. Favorite splurge: I never really splurge. It's my parents that surprise me on special occasions! My prized possession is a vintage cross body Chanel bag.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
