My style. Vintage-meets-modern; I'm a chameleon when it comes to fashion. I like mixing trends to create new ones.
Shopping musts. My mom usually gives me clothes since she sells clothes, but I usually shop in various stores like Forever21, Jellybean, department stores, online shops, and even thrift shops!
Style Icon. Undoubtedly, Camille Co and Vern and Verniece Enciso. I keep visiting their blogs! For Camille, I like how she's very fashion-forward and how she incorporates several trends, while with Vern and Verniece, I like how they play with modern style and how they stay true to their styles. I love them!
Style influenece. Being in front of a lot of people while growing up has pushed me to be more stylish and fashion forward since a lot of people see me. The bloggers, my friends, and the fashion trends all influence my style.
Closet's color palette. My closet palette ranges from neutral to neon colors. I think I have the colors of the rainbow in my closet. I like to keep my closet interesting with pieces in different colors.
Fave accessory. My vintage Casio watch and necklaces! I'm still caught up with the trend of sporting bulky, metal necklaces!
Never say never. I'm willing to try wearing different trends, so I think there's nothing I can say that I will never be caught wearing.
Trendy return. Definitely the 80s. I love how striking their outfits were back then but I think trends always come back, so anytime soon it might make a big comeback.
Best bargain buy. My blue booties! They originally cost P2,000 but since they were on sale, it was down to 200 pesos! Such a steal!
Vintage loving. My gold dragon necklace was a gift from my dad and it's the same age as I am—17 years old.
