Eccentric style. Dressing up is always something that I look forward to. I have no style in particular, but I make sure to add eccentricity to my outfits. I like turning random things into rings, piling on necklaces, and lately I've had a thing for cutting shirts.
Over-the-boarders shopping. Thailand has got to be my favorite shopping destination. Their clothes are up to the minute with style and not to mention crazy affordable! Hong Kong is next on my list because of H&M. Locally, I get one-of-a-kind pieces by visiting thrift shops around Manila and I shop online as well.
Fave fashion designer. Betsey Johnson has to be my top favorite! I just love her over-the-top feminine funky designs. I also like Vivienne Westwood because she is one of the few designers capable of achieving the rocker chic look. I use her designs as fashion inspiration for when I feel like mixing in a bit of punk rock into my outfits.
Always wearing... Accessories! I never step out of the house without a pretty ring, stacked bangles or layered necklaces.
Cyberspace-inspired. The gorgeous people on Lookbook.nu and fashion websites I follow on Tumblr serve as my inspiration when dressing up everyday.
Style icon. The ever so fashionable people I follow on Lookbook.nu, such as Mayo Wo and Tricia Gosingtian.
Mother's care. My mom has had a boutique business since I was little and she brought me with her whenever she shopped for clothes abroad. I guess my fascination for fashion started from there.
Rainbow bright. My closet is made up of rainbow colors (literally). I have a lot of neutrals such as blacks and whites as well.
Never ever! Knee-high boots. I just don't think I can carry it.
The basics. The little black dress, classic black pumps and Ray-Ban aviators.
Trend comeback. Corsets, petticoats and garments made of fine fabric from the Renaissance era are definitely worth a comeback.
Vintage hand-me-downs. I got a Louis Vuitton Speedy as a hand-me-down from my mom. I don't know how old it is exactly but it was her first designer bag.
