The Non-Fashion Girl's Guide to Fashion: Tassel Earrings
Trendy fashion. It's the headliner for the holidays; the pièces de résistance; the thief that captures the hearts of all mediocre fashionistas, but as Heidi Klum always says, "One day you're in and the next day you're out."
So how can I, a non-fashionista whose only idea of a trendy piece of wear were those horrible toe shoes that didn't really catch on, ever get a hold of these ever-changing duds?
Toe-tally not worth it.
Don't worry, for I am fully equipped with the latest fashion knowledge from the spellbinding Candy HQ and with my never-ending pursuit for high fashion despite bad credit lines in order to introduce to you the non-fashionista's guide to fashion.
The scorching blaze of the summer sun has once again enveloped the ingenious minds of hot-blooded designers to spring forth their freshest trend: tassel earrings.
New threads – the tassel earrings!
Don't be alarmed by their broom-like appearance or their neck sweeping nature. The beauty of these thread-bound earrings are their simplistic design and eye popping dyes—all of which cost nearly a six hundred pesos! Some even go as far as a thousand pesos (!!!).
They gently sweep your neck.
Okay, real non-fashionista talk: six hundred pesos? That's like 6 regular milk teas with pearls—the only jewels that really matter. I could literally bind up the hair stuck on my shower drain with a rusty wire, loop it around my ear, and still call it "organic high fashion" for zero PHP. I'm just saying that price is pretty messed up, but between the rust in my ears and the hole in my pocket, the hole sounds less mortifying.
6 of these are worth a pair of thread danglers!
But this accessory's chic index is no joke. If you need something to spice up your basic black dress or maybe splash a bit of fun, flirty colors to your 'do, these stringy bohemian tassels are for you. Not to mention they're totally lightweight and can brush off the cookie crumbs on your shirt, too.
Given these circumstances, I highly recommend buying a pair of these babies if you're aiming for the whole off-shoulder I'm-a-hilltop-milkmaid-on-IG-but-really-I-live-in-Ayala-look. They do emphasize the exquisite appearance of sun-kissed skin, perfect for the summer vibe, which we all know is basically all-year round in the Philippines even with the rainy season upon us.
The classic milkmaid look.
What do you think of these tassel danglers, Candy Girls? They're definitely cute and obviously trendy: that's a double check for the requisites to be fashionable. All my strings are attached for them, are yours?

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
