Girly with edge. I'm a very random person. I can go girly, boyish, rocker, boho or whatever that pops into my mind. But I consider my style as girly but edgy. My style also depends on my mood and I always make sure of my uniqueness. I love to play with colors but at the same time I also love monochromatic shades. I love to wear shorts and leggings.
Shopping haven.
I love to shop! Shopping takes all my stress away. I usually shop at Folded and Hung, The Ramp, People are People, Wade, SO ! Fab, Topshop, Maldita and Landmark. I also love visiting trift shops, Greenhills and Divisoria.
Fave fashion designer.
I love Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, Christian Siriano, Anna Sui, Valentino, Vivienne Westwood, Michael Kors, Monique Lhuillier and Oscar Dela Renta. They have amazing creations. :) I dream of becoming a fashion designer  someday.
Never leave the house without...
Accessories. I never go out without them. It feels like my outfit is incomplete.
I'm inspired by fashion blogs, magazines and photos of celebrities that I browse through the internet. I'm even inspired to make my own fashion blogs. I have my Chictopia and my Lookbook account. It's quite addicting to post looks in these fashion sites.
Style icon.
I adore Audrey Hepburn, Taylor Momsen, Vanessa Hudgens,Miley Cyrus, Leighton Meester and Katy Perry
Style influence.
The people around me,the places I go to and the things that I see everyday. I think these things has got something to do with my style.
Color palette.
I think I have all the colors inside my closet, but I really love monochromatic shades :)
Fashion o-no.
Gothic outfits and super revealing clothes.
Stylish three.
Skinny Jeans, A plain v-neck white shirt and ballet flats.
Comeback trend. I always loved sailor inspired outfits and colorful and playful dresses. I think those trends should make a comeback.
Vintage finds. What is it and how old? Yes, I own a lot of vintage stuff especially bags, jewelries and tops from my mom and my grandmother. Fashion trends just repeat from time to time so I rummage through their clothes and look for unique finds. I even had a RayBan aviator from my dad!
