Skip-happy. My style is varied but what's constant is a pop of color or mixing contrasting ones. I like things bubbly and happy without over doing it. I love vintage, laces, polka dots and plaids—weeeee skip skip skip.
Shopping galore. I swear I can do good in thrift shops. My accessories—shoes, bags—on the other hand, I get from malls—no brands in particular. Just random stuff. Others are gifts.
Favorite designers. Ralph Lauren for easy and casual looks. Chanel for clean and feminine. For fun and color, Diane von Furstenberg, the goddess. For over-the-top glitter, Elie Saab. Valentino for red carpet events. And Randy Ortiz here in Philippines. Phew! What a mouthful—not that I can afford any of them.
Must-have in every outfit. I'd feel uncomfortable without any earrings—at least my everyday pearl ones. And of course a sensible wrist watch.
Style icons. Angelina Jolie does it effortlessly. Lindsay Lohan dresses real well too. I also like Nicole Ricci. I like Rachel Zoe's style who, incidentally, dresses LiLo and Nicole. And oh Blair Waldorf and Jenny Humphrey of Gossip Girl.
Style influences. I get inspired with what I see on GG and from fellow bloggers. I mix them up and come up with my own interpretations of their looks. School (kind of) influences me, too. Mainly because of the Catholic school dress code.
Closet color palette. Though it's a splash of colors, I keep a lot of blacks and whites—those are easy to pair with anything.
Never ever. Those bulky Crocs. Period.
Three Classics. Denim pants. Plain white shirt. LBD.
Comeback trend. The great Flapper era, 1920s. I so envy the people born during this time. The dresses from the 1950s should make a comeback, too—so pretty and fun.
Vintage hand-me-down. Sadly, none, but I'll make sure when I have my own kids and grand kids, I'll give them mine and hopefully pass it from generation to generation.
