Mix and match. My style is constantly evolving and experimental. I love standing out in a crowd by wearing one to two key items that usually makes my outfit, and I try to keep everything else simple and basic. I love to mix and match extremes, like girly and manly, shiny and matte, wild and tamed. At times though (at least once or twice a week) I do classic, basic, and simple.
Travel shopping.
When I travel abroad I love shopping in Hong Kong, Singapore, or Bangkok for brands that are not found in our country. In the Philippines, I love shopping in Topshop for trendy items and Zara for some classic pieces that are not heavy on the pocket. I also like checking out bazaars at The Rockwell Tent for cute finds. When I have the time, I try to visit vintage shops as well for unique and dramatic pieces. I also find local designers’ shops very amusing like Barba, Rajo, Ivarluski Aseron, etc., but my favorite mall would have to be Greenbelt 5, 3, and 4.
Fave fashion designer.
I have a lot of favorite fashion designers like John Galliano, Miuccia Prada, Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood, Oscar De La Renta, Marc Jacobs, Richard Tisci, Dolce & Gabanna, depending on their collection and my mood. However, I find Karl Lagerfeld one of the most classic yet piercing edgy, and very successful designers in our time, and even before. His attitude is also a stand-out.
Everyday gear.
Head-bands and Heels. Always!
I’m inspired by anything around me. I find joy in the simplest things. I get a lot of inspiration from magazines, fashion blogs, runway shots, TV shows, movies, everyday city scenes, and so much more.
Style icon.
Edie Sedgwick.

Influenctial people. I guess my style is highly influenced by my modern-day style icons such as Rachel Zoe, model Rumineely, Jane Aldrige, Carine Roitfeld. These women are very inspirational, motivational, and highly influential.
Closet palette.
I have a lot of beige, blush, and blacks right now.
Never seen with...
Denim on denim. Sequin on Sequin. Or any of those rubber clogs.
Always in the loop.
A diamond ring, a classic watch, and your smile.
Make a comeback. MOD.
Vintage owns. They’re mostly jewelries and they’re very precious to me. I wear 2 of them everyday, and not wearing them makes me feel naked.
