Versatile dresser. I'd have to say my style is versatile. It also changes according to what I think is appropriate for a certain occasion. The weather also plays a vital part in the way I dress up. I can be vintage, girly/feminine, or just plain and simple. Honestly, I don't easily get swept away by trends. Experimenting with my outfits is what I enjoy doing the most! I definitely love heels—the higher, the better!
Wise shopper.
I can shop anywhere! I love going to malls and trying on cute outfits but my shopping havens would be: department stores, bazaars, and even thrift shops. It's in these places where I find inexpensive one-of-a-kind pieces. I'm not very particular with brands or labels so when I like what I see, I buy it but I make sure that the fabric and the quality is good. And of course, if the price is within my budget.
Fave designers.
I adore Karl Lagerfeld, Max Azria, Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, and Marc Jacobs to name a few.
Time concious.
I wear my wrist watch every single day 'cause I feel like my outfit wouldn't be complete without it and probably also because it's part of my uniform as student nurse.
Inspired.
I pretty much get my inspiration from Lookbookers, Hollywood celebs, fashion bloggers, fashion designers, and young entrepreneurs. These are people who not only think out of the box but also continue to make a name for themselves. In a way, they inspire me to be like them!
Style gurus.
Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, Taylor Momsen, Carine Roitfeld, Rachel Bilson, Katy Perry, Chloe Sevigny, Victoria Beckham—gorgeous women, each having very unique sense of style.
Media-influenced.
I've always liked dressing up and I think fashion magazines, blogs, and TV shows such as Project Runway, How Do I Look?, and The Look for Less have greatly influenced my sense of style. Online, I constantly visit Polyvore and Lookbook. I just love interacting with people across the globe who have the same interests as I do.
Rainbow bright.
My closet is practically a mixture of colors but I'm mostly attracted to magenta, fuchsia, electric blue, aquamarine, and green. They kind of represent my strong personality.
Never ever!
You'll never see me wearing a backless top or anything that's too revealing. I prefer layering or putting on cover-ups, cropped jackets, cardigans, or blazers since they add a bit of sophistication to my look.
The basics.
Blazer, black platform pumps, and that little black dress
Marie Antoinette.
Tea gowns for their intricate detail and bustles for their bosom-illusion. I'm such a huge fan of laces, florals, ruffles, bows, corsets, petticoats, or practically anything from the Victorian era! I love how romantic, elegant, and feminine-looking women were during those times. At present, combining vintage clothes with modern pieces is what I love to do.
