  1. My style character: I love the whole boho look in Across the Universe, but I love the killer jackets and coats of Ali McGraw in Love Story. When it comes to the '90s style, Clueless is definitely my go-to peg.

  1. My no-fail style equation: On the days when I stare blankly at my closet with "nothing to wear," I can never go wrong with a white button-down blouse, skinny jeans, and black leather boots for a put-together, but still comfy OOTD.

  1. My go-to brand: My main go-to for basic everyday wear would be Uniqlo. But then again, I’m not too particular with brands. As long as they fit well and look good, I can definitely make it work!

  1. Colors that make my heart skip a beat: Anything with natural hues like brown, yellow, and orange. (Sosyal version: camel, dandelion, peach).

  1. Fashion trend I can’t ever live without: Denim jackets! They go well with absolutely everything.

  1. My beauty must-haves: I have dry skin so it's important for me to use moisturizer. I use Cetaphil because it's light and not that sticky. Other than that, I make my own! For my face, I use oatmeal or egg white masks. As for my eye bags, I freeze used tea bags and place them on my eyes.

  1. Beauty trend I simply don’t understand: Long nails! How do you even get to type on your phone, or hold anything, or even function?

  1. I can’t leave the house without my: Phone! Then again, I guess that would be everyone's answer, too.

  1. Fave shopping tip: Ever tried going to the ukay-ukay? Most of my best pieces were found there and they would only cost me around 50-100 pesos! Just make sure to wash them well before wearing them.

  1. Must-follow: Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley. One glance at her monochrome pieces and you can see how simple yet well curated her outfits are.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
