Feel-good style. Youthful, free and highly experimental! It's pretty much me mixing and matching different pieces that have caught my eye before and compelled me to take home. When it comes to dressing, I've always been more rock than hiphop, but also more preppy than punky. In the end, if it makes me feel good, it's a winner. Comfy style is how I roll.

Shop attack. Topshop, H&M, Zara, M)phosis. I love Warehouse, Adora, and Kate Moss for Topshop, but only buy pieces when they're on sale! Since I'm always down for a cheap thrill I like to ukay once in a while, but that's when I'm in Tagaytay or Baguio.

Favorite fashion designers. Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander Wang, Tory Burch, Georgina Chapman for Marchesa

Always part of the outfit. A necklace from my grandma—it's got a diamond-studded letter L in script. And Daisy by Marc Jacobs!

Style inspiration. Women who dress to express themselves and people who appreciate fashion as a form of art. There's a stigma that fashion and retail is for the ditzy and materialistic, but I've seen way too many women with style and substance to believe that! Among celebrities and starlets, I admire the fashion smarts of Kate Bosworth, Zooey Deschanel, Camilla Belle, and Vanessa Hudgens (I hate her but she always looks so good!)

Style icons. Kate Moss, hands down. She could make a potato sack chic.

Style influences. Magazines, style blogs, and traveling. Europe is a great place to sit around and watch gorgeously dressed women. Haha! I also keep an eye on certain style bloggers like Californian cool girl Karla (of and chic Parisienne Betty (of Check them out :)

Closet's color palette. Color is all over the place! All my stuff is arranged by color. I was once really partial to reds, pinks, and purples, but got over that immediately when I noticed. Haha! These days I love to wear lots of white and summery yellow. That won't go away soon.

Never ever. Denim on denim. There should be like a law against that.

Stylish three. Your bag and shoes immediately give away your hand at style, so those come first. A good leather bag that shows people your personality, and good black flats or heels (whichever you feel better in). Last would have to be sunglasses. I prefer Ray Bans!

Trend comeback. Poofy hair and spandex. It could happen.

Vintage hand-me-downs. I'm the only girl in my family that wears a 7-half like my lola, so I get lots of vintage designer shoes from her. Recently she's given me strappy red suede shoes from Christian Dior and Varina flats from Ferragamo. She says they're from the '70s and '80s.
