Experimental style. I'd say that my style is very unpredictable and experimental. Dressing up depends on my mood. I can go from girly to simple to edgy one day, and the next day is a different story. I don't usually dwell on particular style or outfit. I wear clothes that make a statement. I usually go for the eccentric pieces rather than pieces which are owned by too many. I believe that every girl should stand out in their own little way. I love to mix and match items from my closet, my mom's closet and even my grandma's. I have this eye for vintage and I try to incorporate them with my outfits everytime. I believe that fashion is past, present and future perfect!

Shopping addict. I shop anywhere. Good items can never be found in just one place. I love Forever 21, Zara, Topshop and Mango but I am never brand conscious. I also love going to bazaars, Greenhills and Tiendesitas. I am currently addicted to online shopping. There are lots of amazing stuff online that you can't find in malls plus they save me time and energy. I have tried going to a thrift store in Tagaytay once and if I have all the time, I'd love to go back. I'm an impulsive shopper, and oh, I tend to panic buy. When I like something I always make sure I get them, because I don't want to regret it when they're gone.

Fashion designers love. I will always adore the classic Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, her designs are timeless. I also love Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander Mcqueen.

Always wearing a... Cute accessories and a pretty little smile.

Mommy-inspired. I get inspiration from fashion blogs, magazines and fashion shows and even the streets! Haha! When I go out, I always look how people dress. Television shows and series like Gossip Girl. Online fashion communities are also great influences to me like Lookbook,, and Chictopia. Above all these inspirations, I have my mom. I always get her advice when I dress up. I feel good whenever she compliments my style.

Style icons. I'm crazy over Agyness Deyn! She is effortlessly stunning always! I mean, everything looks good on her. I also love Rachel Bilson, the Olsen twins, Taylor Momsen, Katy Perry, and Carrie Bradshaw(SJP)!
