Style Files: Isabel Sicat

Stylish teen Isabel shows you her style and a few items in her closet, too!


Name:
Isabel Sicat
Age: 16
School: International School Manila
Hometown: Manila! Woohoo!

Two-faced. My style is somewhat schizophrenic in the sense that I don't dress consistently. One day I'll wear an old motorcycle jacket with some vintage sunglasses and Converse and the next it'll be black tights, booties, and a French dress. Basically, any mashup of clothes and accessories that will look good (and that I can afford!).

Cheaper by the dozen. I like to go to inexpensive places like thrift stores or places like SM to shop. Occasionally, I'll splurge on more pricey items at a store like Zara, but I definitely like going to the cheaper places—you really have to sift through, but eventually you'll find some great stuff. Also, you can buy more. Ukay-ukays along EDSA are the best!

Dare to bare. Always part of my outfit: underwear! And a vanilla fragrance.

Stylinspiration. I'm inspired by anything, really. I can see an outfit post on a fashion blog (hurray for Chictopia!), old picture or a great piece of artwork and immediately I'll think, "WOW" and an outfit combo might come to mind. Some of the most inspirational things I'll see in my daily life: that's one of the great aspects of fashion. Anything and everything is inspiring.

Twin Icons. I particularly like the Olsen twins—MK especially. I love everything they wear, and I really want a copy of their book, Influence!

Fashion is in my blood. My cousin, Jules: she was the one who first got me into fashion and dressing well! I used to dressed terribly. I'm forever grateful for her!

Organized chaos. My closet is completely unorganized so it's not exactly a R O Y G B I V layout: mostly of black and white basics peppered with brightly colored pieces. But I love color, so even though black/white is always good, I'll somehow integrate some bright piece in.

See you later, alligator! I will never be caught wearing: CROCS! N-e-v-e-r.

Three times the charm. A well-tailored coat, good pair of jeans, and slightly oversized cardigan.

Blast from the past. I would say oversized items/sweaters from the '80s but they're pretty in right now. Probably more '20s influences like cloche hats or the slim silhouette of the dresses.

Stylish hand-me-downs.Some of my favorite items used to belong to my Mom and my lola, like my Mom's 1980s glasses or dresses, skirts and scarves from my lola (that I sometimes alter/shorten). I like to take things from my male relatives too. I love my Dad's old oversized V-neck Hanes T-shirt and this Yale sweater from when my Grandpa went there.

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.

After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.

5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
