Anything goes. I call myself a chameleon when it comes to my style. I dress according to the mood I'm in. I could be all styled up if I feel like it or sometimes I'd just wear my dad's or my little bro's over-sized shirts and leggings to school whenever I feel lazy.
Shopping haven. I have never been a brand conscious person. There are days were I'll indulge myself in shops like ZARA, Topshop, and the like, but rummaging though thrift shops and vintage stores are still the best! Especially if you happen to get items from high end lines like Chanel.
Favorite fashion designer. There are tons of designers that I love, like Thakoon, Marc Jacobs, and Karl Lagerfield. But if I have to choose one, it would have to be Vivienne Westwood. She's just really crazy in an artistic-fashion way. Her designs embody my love for both music and fashion. Mich Dulce is also one of my faves! :)
Always part of the outfit. There's always this necklace I wear. It just goes well with everything really. I found the pendant while we were cleaning my cousin's room, and just made it into a necklace. It looks vintage and rock-and-roll-ish.
Inspired. Music has always been really inspiring. I wake up in the morning, turn on some music that I feel like listening to on that day, and just be taken away with it.
Favorite style icon. Some people might not agree with me but I really like the style of the Olsen twins. They may look all weird and stuff, but it works for me. I guess I'm just weird that way (haha!). I like them because their style is fun and full of character.
Style influence. My style is influenced by everything: growing up and exploring whatever is out there. People I get to meet and read about; music that I discover and love, places and culture I get to see and witness. These things influence my style. I guess that's the reason why I don't really have a definite style. It's all over the place. :)
Neutral shades. As much as I try to be adventurous with colors, I could say 60% of my clothes are in the neutral tone. But I am trying to amend that. ;P
Never seen. I'd probably don't want to be caught wearing something in neon green. It's just too bright for me. XD
Stylish three. The perfect little black dress, perfect-fitting jeans, and a smile.
Make a comeback. I would love for the trend during the Renaissance period to make a come backā€”big puffy ball gowns, complicated hairstyles, men in tights... that would be worth seeing.
Vintage finds. There are a lot of vintage pieces that were passed on to me from my parents. Mostly accessories like sunglasses, clutches, and purses from the '80s to '90s, and shoes (since my mom and I have the same shoe size).

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
