My style. It's pretty versatile and it basically depends on the weather and of course, my mood. It's always just a mixture of different colors and/or prints playfully put together, but I also try to keep it simple.
Shopping faves. My top picks are H&M, Topshop, Zara, Mango, Forever 21, and Cotton On, but aside from these, I make sure to go and check out the department stores and bazaars (I'm pretty sure there are great finds and on-trend outfits as well, for an affordable cost but also with great quality).
Style icons. Vanessa Hudgens, Nicole Richie, Kate Moss, and of course our fashion bloggers and icons in the country–Georgina Wilson, Anne Curtis, Kryz Uy, Tricia Gosingtian, Camille Co, Laureen Uy, Patricia Prieto, Vern and Verniece Enciso, Dani Barretto, Sophie Ramos, and a lot more.
Style influence. Basically everyone and everything around me. As well as the things I see and learn from the international and local fashion icons.
Closet colors. My closet is definitely full of colors. I have tons of the colors white, black and all the different shades of PINK (of course), red, green, and blue.
Fave accessory. Sunglasses! You can never go wrong with it, sspecially because it's super hot and sunny in the Philippines. Or if not sunnies, I guess it'll be a wrist watch, a bracelet, or earrings.
Never wearing. Inappropriate clothing like thick jackets or boots with fur (because it's really, really hot in our country), anything indecent (like super duper short shorts, super revealing tops, etc.), leggings paired with cropped tops, and anything neon.
Trendy return. It would definitely be the fashion from the '50s.
Best bargain. Recently, H&M was on sale and I was able to buy 5 to 6 tops that ranged from
P300-700. Isn't that great? I super love it when my favorite shops are on sale.
Black, white, and gold.
A hint of red.
