Ever-changing style. My style is a bit of everything—from girly to edgy, and even boyish. I also consider the weather and venue when it comes to what I wear.
Shopping faves. I usually shop at department stores and bazaars. I believe that you can get great finds anywhere, you just need to have patience. I rarely shop at pricey stores but when I do, I make sure that the pieces I'm buying are staples and versatile as well.
Style icons. My style icons are primarily Manila's top bloggers: Kryz Uy, Camille Co, Laureen Uy, Tricia Gosingtian, and Patricia Prieto to name a few. I also love the style of Gossip Girl's lead characters Blair and Serena plus the fashionable looks of Taylor Swift and Zooey Deschanel. 
Stylish influence. My style was influenced mainly by reading style and fashion blogs. Foreign TV shows like Gossip Girl, ANTM, and Project Runway also have great influence on my style.
Closet palette. I have the basic neutrals plus a wide range of colors on my closet. I don't have to wear a uniform so I'm currently investing and purchasing different colors and pieces so it's easier to mix and match.
Accessory must. Definitely earrings! I feel bare if I'm not wearing any.
Never wearing. A hanging top with leggings and clothes that are way too revealing.
Trend comeback. I'm open to any trend making a comeback. It's fun experimenting with clothes and it can be a lot like time traveling because of the trends from different eras.
What a steal. I bought a denim jacket for P100 only. :)
