Romatic and classic. I love outfits that are classic, decent, and comfortable to wear. I am versatile when it comes to style. I mix and match the clothes in my closet. I also believe the best style is how a person brings the outfit with their personality or attitude.
Certified Shopaholic.
For main retail stores, l love shopping at Zara, Topshop, Promod, Forever 21, Dorothy Perkins, Plain and Prints, and especially in bazaars at Rockwell Tent, NBC, or The Grove. For online stores, I usually shop at H&M and ebay blogs, also emerging brands such as Coexist, WAGW, Gold Dot, and more.
Fave fashion designer.
I absolutely love Marc Jacobs and Gabrielle Bonheur  of "Coco" Chanel. Her designs are classic and timeless!
Bags and then some.
I always use leather brown bags  and accessories. I always match my outfit with different accessories that go perfectly with any outfit! And also, never forget the natural makeup.
Princess of elegance.
My favorite style icon during the '80s would be the Princess of Wales, Princess Diana. She’s a romantic dresser. I love her elegance and gracefulness, especially the way she carries herself in every outfit she wears. Also my recent favorite icons are Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz.
Fashion influence.
I get most of  my inspiration from my mom, and girls from all over the world, especially those on Chictopia and Lookbook. I got to meet inspiring bloggers like Camille Co of Coexist, Dominique Tiu, Kryz Uy of WAGW, Lissa Kahayon, Lexi Gancayco, and Tricia Gosingtian. I also get my inspiration from fashion magazines such as Candy.
Closet palette.
Neutral and pastel colors!
Never ever! Gothic outfits and fish net stockings! I was never a fan of gothic looks especially with dark makeup and black eye liners.
The basic three.
Classic dresses, white tank top paired with jeans, and florals (I'm a big fan of florals!).
Comeback trend.
Style from the '70s and '80s! I love vintage outfits, the fashion of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and the like. I love the trend of wide-leg jeans, high-waist shorts, the use of polka, and sailor prints.
Vintage own.
My grandma and my mom kept their fashionable vintage items and I'm so glad we have the same size! My favorite would be the high-waist pants and shorts of my mom and printed polka tops in different colors. They never go out of style!
