Versatile. My style is a clash between urban minimalism and romantic femininity.It's about breaking the rules; mixing and matching unexpected pieces together to create clothes that are more interesting. It's not about following trends, it's creating your own style (cliché but very true). I like to play with fashion and mixing pieces gives me the opportunity to do so.

Shop and shop. In Tokyo: H&M, Forever21, UniQlo, Japanese boutique stores along Takeshita, St. Harajuku, and outlet stores to name a few. In the Philippines: People are People, Topshop, The Ramp, Mango, etc.

Always seen with.
Accessories. A girl can never go without it.

I like street watching especially when I'm in Tokyo. The people there inspire me to be unafraid to show who I am through style. I can dress up however I want to and people wouldn't stare at me or treat me differently. Everyone has their own thing going; everyone's individuality is shown through their clothes as they walk the streets, it's amazing! It's like literally being in a sea of savvy fashionistas.

Stylish three. The classic white tee, denim, blazers.

Make a comeback.
I especially adore the trends from the 1940s-1950s. To me, those times gave us the most timeless and classic pieces in the history of fashion. But the good thing about today is that trends that come from the past are all making a comeback now. Everything's here and there's a plus of having modern touches to it. I have nothing more to ask for.
