Moody. Like my mood, my style varies a lot; it keeps changing from day to day. I try to achieve a different look every now and then. It's quite unpredictable and exciting! Colors and accessorizing are the major things I consider when dressing up. A full black or monochromatic outfit is very simple and common to do, but splashing colours to it (i.e. red shoes, purple scarf, etc.) makes it stand out. I mainly dress up according to my mood, the weather, and comfort.

Bipolar Shopping. Back in Manila, I would normally shop at the tiangges, People are People, Terranova, Tango, and VNC. Here in Vancouver, the stores I go to are Zara, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Urban Behaviour, and Brown's for shoes.

Look but don't buy. I do admire designers such as Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and Consuelo Castiglioni. However, I don't really buy from them considering it's not in my price range. (haha)

Always present. The necklace that my BFF sent me for my birthday.

Inspired. I don't have a particular person in mind but I like observing people on the street flaunting their style. I get my inspiration from that.

Style icons. I consider three people for this: Mary Kate Olsen, Jennifer Aniston, and Jackie O.

Fashion by geography. That would be the mere fact of living in Vancouver, and Chictopia.

Color closet. I'd say a rainbow!

I will never wear... "Spice Girls' boots"—those humongous platforms (no offense. I love the Spice Girls!)

The three classics. A pair of Jeans, the classic LBD and LWD, and Chanel handbags (haha).

Yesterday's fashion. Well, I think every decade in history have already made their own comebacks. But I would really love the 50's high-waist poodle skirt to stick around.

Something borrowed. I always do borrow my mom's shoes and clothes (those that would fit me because she's skinnier and smaller than me).
