Know When to Save or Splurge in Fashion
Admit it, when it comes to shopping, we aren't exactly our most practical selves. After all, how can one resist a pair of good-looking leather boots or a trendy pair of gold hoops? But even with all the beautiful pieces and store mannequins calling for us to stop thinking and start spending a la Confessions of a Shopaholic's Rebecca Bloomwood, the reality of it all is that we don't have unlimited cash. That's why it's important to know when to save and when to indulge yourself when it comes to fashion. Scroll through our list below as we break it down for you.
Although people won't see what bra you're wearing, that's not enough excuse for you to go cheap on these essentials. Not only do they make the fit of your OOTD better, they give you the necessary support your boobs need, too!
No doubt that every girl needs basic tees, whether it's plain, printed, or a graphic one. But t-shirts get worn out all the time—especially when you wear it often. So is there a need to shell out thousands of pesos for a shirt? Definitely not at all.
It's easy to get tempted to not spend for a good pair of denim jeans. After all, if there is anything in our wardrobe that you can wear for three days straight without anyone noticing it, that has got to be denim jeans. But cheaper denim jeans sag easily and fade faster, too! Yikes.
Fashion trends come and go, but nothing enters and exits the fashion scene faster than accessories. So the next time you consider spending your week’s worth of allowance for a trendy choker, ask yourself if you would still wear it five years from now. If not, opt for a more affordable version instead.
When it comes to shopping for the perfect blazer, everything comes into play—from the stitching down to the form. While it would be a dream come true to find the perfect blazer at an affordable price, more often than not, fast fashion blazers are not.
Whether one should save or splurge for a pair of shoes can be tricky. We say, when it comes to dressier pairs of shoes, always invest, but when it comes to your daily footwear, under a thousand pesos shoes will add a fashionable splash to your OOTD just as well as an expensive pair.
How about you? What do you save/splurge for?

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
