Fun-Bubbly-Crazy. I like bright colored clothes and I often experiment on different looks. I make a statement through my accessories and my personal creations. Actually, fashion sense highly reflects the kind of personality that I have. I am a very outgoing person. I often talk a lot, crack jokes, and sometimes make fun of myself. :)
Shopping haven. I usually go to Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Forever 21, Vintage store and anonymous thrift stores. Aside from that, when I have free time, I draw and design my own clothes and have them made at our very own dress shop in Nueva Ecija- Bestida Creations. I have this thing for unique pieces. When I personalized a piece, there is this sense of ownership of that piece, of that particular style. I really feel flattered when I wear my creations and people around me would stop and say, "Wow! Your dress is really nice!".
Fave fashion designers. In the international scene, Im inlove with the works of Betsey Johnson! She has always been my fave designer since I was 13. I also love Alexander Mcqueen, Rei Kawakubo, and Balmain. Meanwhile in the local scene, I love the works of Kermit Tesoro, Mitch Dulce, Kate Torralba, and Rajo Laurel.
Put a ring on it. Chunky cocktail rings are a staple in my everyday outfit. They may be small pieces of jewelry but they definitely make a strong statement.
Punk fashion. My personal style is particularly inspired by the year 1980s when everyone's wearing sexy tights, and bubbly bright neon colors. I am also particularly inspired by the music of The Cure, Blondie, Nirvana, David Bowie and The Kinks, to name a few.
Style gurus. I have a couple of favorite style icons and they are Rachel Zoe, Nina Garcia, Tavi, and Bryan Boy. I know they're pretty much a confused mix but they definitely are all very good in what they do and I'm inspired to do just as well.
A little of everything. My closet contains a lot of blacks, neons, and animal prints. My day-to-day outfits are really a hodgepodge of different things. I do not really stick to one style, but I do have my personal favorites and as I've mentioned earlier on, I love to do a lot of exploring. It's because when it comes to outfits, you'll never know what will come out of certain mixes-and-matches unless you've tried putting them on altogether.
Uncomfy slides. I'll never be caught wearing a slide shoes... I just don't like it and it feels so uncomfortable for me! especially if its with heels...
The basic three. Definitely, super sized eyeglasses, black pumps, and cocktail rings! These three things just make all sorts of outfit go oh-so-loud!
Hippie trend. Although I could always try wearing it out, I think I would love to see the "hippie look" back in town. I would love to go to the mall and see everyone in their best hippie outfit as if I time traveled back to the '70s.:)
Vintage hand-me-downs. I now own my mom's 30-year old ribbon brooch. It's a large piece that just undoubtedly goes well with any kind of outfit.
