Changing style. My style is always different. It's sometimes trendy but most of the time very casual. I really love experimenting when it comes to dressing up, so I can say my style is a little bit of everything: from girly to preppy to rock chic, and even boho.
Shopping fave. My go-to shops would be Forever 21, The Ramp, and Cotton On. I'm also a big fan of bazaars. It's always a joy to get trendy pieces at low prices!
Style icons. Definitely Lauren Conrad. I also love the style of Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, and the Olsen twins. For local bloggers, my favorites would be Laureen Uy, Camille Co, and Cheyser Pedregosa.
Style influence. I get my inspiration from a lot of magazines and blogs.
Inside my closet. My wardrobe is mostly dark and earthy, sometimes bright, but never pastel.
Accessory must. In terms of necessity, I can never leave the house without earrings.
Not ever. I will never wear clogs. Never ever.
Trendy comeback. I'd really, really, really love to wear denim overalls/jumpers and jackets again.
What a steal. It's so hard to mention just one best bargain when I have lots! But if I had to, my best bargain buys would be everything I got from different tiangges in Bangkok. I swear, Bangkok is a shopping heaven.
