Geometric Fun

I have always loved color blocking, especially those involving bright hues and happy colors like this outfit. Some of my favorite colors like orange, yellow and black are used in this super fun and carefree look. I found this dress a month ago in Jessica, and the moment I tried it on, I immediately wanted it. It's perfect! It's actually a classic shift dress with a geometric orange and black print, but for this look, I wore it less formal by using this black belt to add more shape. 

And who wouldn't think that wearing a necklace over a printed dress and belt is too much? Well I don't. and I think my accessories are fashionably fine. I even added an orange ring to balance my look.

This orange bag matches my outfit perfectly. Sometimes one has to add different shades of a hue to increase emphasis and effect in one look.

I love these light weight wedges from Shoe Goddess. It's around 4-5 inches high but not much of a burden when walking because of the light weight of the shoes and the easy wearable part of it. And I love the mustard yellow color, so fun and young.

Love the color match!

What do you think? xoxo

Flower Power

Ok, I know what you're thinking. You are probably thinking how insane I am to wear such an outfit in a rainy day. Of the 100 days of summer, I chose to wear this floral number in an extraordinary rainy and windy day which is today, probably thinking that today would be a normal usual sunny day in July rather than a bed-weather one with storm signals all over northern Luzon. Well when I planned this outfit, I didn't know what today's weather would be like, which obviously explains that I plan my lookbook outfits way ahead of time.

Since the floral top is already too messy and loud, I decided to wear basic and elegant accessories to tone down and at the same time, dress up my outfit.

I love how the crystal floral necklace matches my crystal cuff watch and this cute crystal ring. It's like I found a set made in heaven! These basic yet elegant accessories instantly dress up my casual outfit and make it more functionally trendy. They also tone down my loud floral statement.

I love this look on me today. It's basic because of the usual top + shorts + flats formula, yet hip and trendy because of the choice of clothing and accessories. Do you agree with me? =)

The Upper East Side

Went to a fine dining Filipino restaurant near San Miguel Malacanang for a dinner with high school barkada. Casa Roces, formerly a house which turned into this beautiful old style yet highly sophisticated and classic Filipino restaurant.

This is the cleopatra chair available on the 2nd floor. It comes with a mirror beside it, and facing two beautifully designed bathrooms.

This is the sitting area of one of the function rooms above. So classic high society.

This is the beautifully decorated bathroom I was talking about. Can't resist not taking a shot inside it!

Since the restaurant was a bit formal, I opted for a vintage/classy look with a lace halter top and lace mini skirt, with main hues of black and white. I put on a black belt to add more blacks to the almost all-white ensemble. And then, since I was going for a vintage classic look, why not use these amazing silver shoes with glass heels? Love the femme dainty feel of those! 

This is the lace halter top, with a brooch which gives a Victorian feel to the outfit.

And this is the lace mini skirt which matches the top perfectly.

I added some golds to the look to look more accented and defined. These gold cuff and ring adds the Grecian vibe or the goddess feel to my outfit, which adds more sophistication and class.

These are the ah-mazing silver shoes with glass heels. Got them a few years ago from Hong Kong and barely used them. When I prepared this outfit, I just knew that it is time to bring these babies out.

And this is the gang... JACKI!

Paint the Town in Pink

It was a work + shopping + dinner with old friends day. I had to wear comfortable yet stylish clothes to feel good during shopping at greenhills and also to look fab at the dinner. I opted for a nice and easy look with a cute top and shorts and comfortable wedges. I paired vintage and dainty accessories to keep my sweet look, and edgy and loud wedges to make a statement. In an ordinary and simple outfit like this, the "papansin" wedges is the statement piece. I felt good the whole day, without worrying that I have compromised or sacrificed my stylish side for comfortable shopping.

Red Black Roll

On a Saturday movie date, I wore this red, black and white number. It's cute, sweet and edgy at the same time, perfect for looking trendy and sweet strolling in the mall with your date on a weekend. I balanced the sweetness of the cropped lace top and black crystal necklace on top with the red hot short shorts using an edgy and loud studded wide belt. I topped the look with an equally edgy studded sling bag and two black and brown rings. Lastly, I found these cute red studded sandals that I haven't wear for almost a year at the back of my shoe closet and decided that it will be fun to add it to my look.

What would you wear on a Saturdate?

Casual Saturdays

Yesterday was a shopping saturday for me, even though I needed to go to shop the whole day, it did not stop me to be excited to go to the shoe sale in NBC tent. After an hour of looking around the whole venue of I'm a Shoe Lover sale event by the LIST Group, I saw a pair of yellow wedges that I just can't get enough of. Satisfied, I left the shoe bazaar happy. I wore this shimmer long sleeves top paired with red hot shorts for a statement piece. Then I added black accessories to add strong colors to the red and white shades. And because I was going to a shoe sale, I needed to wear comfy flats for me to run around quick and spot the shoes that I want.
