Cheap and Chic. I don't like having one specific look so I dress according to my mood and inspiration. Since I'm not really brand-obsessed, I wear anything that looks good on me no matter how cheap it is. I shop at ukay-ukays a LOT so I always say I'm the Queen of Cheap because 40% of my clothes are from the thrift store. Wearing cheap clothes gives me the challenge to pull it off.

Ukay Queen. Thrift shops/Ukay-ukays definitely. But for "investment pieces" like jeans, shoes, and leggings, I'd go for Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Mango, Zara & Forever21. (How I wish we have H&M here in Manila.)

Fave Fashion Designer. Betsey Johnson for her girly grunge style, and for the bad-ass factor, I really dig Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen and Christophe Decarnin for Balmain.

Always in mind. An I-don't-give-a-damn-what-you-think-about-my-outfit attitude.

Fashion inspiration. The person who inspired me to get into fashion blogging was Rumi Neely. Her blog, Fashion Toast, was the first ever fashion blog I've read and it basically opened a whole new world for me-the world of fashion. I love her style so much and I want to be like her someday!
