When the Shoe Fits

To all fashion girls out there, I'm pretty sure you know this by heart:
Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. " 
- Marilyn Monroe


Well I say, give a girl the right shoes and she can nail her OOTD. Simple as that. For this post, I'd like to share with you some snippets of my fashion lookbook with a local online brand called


It's actually my first time to wear this brand. I only came to know this online store via their Instagram page @enzoshoppebysherylchan. Interestingly, Enzo Online Shoe Shop started as early as 2009.

While browsing, the shoes that immediately caught my eye was those in the color white. For me, it's always a good idea to invest in basic yet classic colors like so. What I did was simply post my order via IG Private Message. Fortunately the seller was kind enough to accommodate my order. It was a breeze transacting. Imagine, I got my order the next day. Now that's what I call a pro.

So here are 3 stylish looks I came up with. As I've said, choosing the right shoes can bring wonders to your outfit. Remember it can either make or break your look.



Hanging out with friends? Date night? This Casual & Polished look will score you perfect points for looking effortlessly beautiful. An all white ensemble paired with Enzo heels is a stunner.


Sometimes, it's better not to show all. Look sexy & mysterious with this top and terno paired with heels by Enzo. Asymmetric cuts and high slits add oomph to any outfit. 


If you're a simple gal who prefers the girl-next-door look, then an offshoulder top and jeans combo can do the trick. For a chic & trendy ensemble, pair it with Enzo's block heels for maximum comfort. 

Whichever style or personality you possess, always remember to embrace the real you. Trust me, no need to conform to what the fashion industry says is on-trend; there's so much options to choose from.... The perks of being a girl :)


And for all shopaholics out there, you're in for a treat. Shopee X Enzo Shoppe is offering a sitewide promo discount of Php100 off for the first order of newly created Shopee accounts. Minimum order is only Php250. Here's the code :)


Hope you had fun in this post :) Stay gorgeous bellas!

Denim Days

Independence Day Celebration may be long over as we begin counting the days 'til July. Imagine we've finished half of 2018. This post will serve as a reminder for you and me that every day is an opportunity for us to exercise our freedom, whether that be in giving opinions or making lifelong decisions. I'm no hero for this country, but even so, I believe those little things we do and encounter daily are the chances we can take to make a difference.


Now that we have entered the rainy season, the sweater weather look will definitely be back on trend. As for me, chill weather would mean casually dressing down with denim. It's so laidback and chic that you can easily pair it with your favorite bottoms and accessories, without worrying too much whether it fits or not.


I'm wearing a denim top by Jessica Simpson and jeans from Bandolino. Thanks Simon for the shopping loot. Such a simple and casual ensemble that anyone can sport and still look chic in. Instead of the usual white sneakers, I paired mine with a nude palette from Shoo-In. Talk about Function and Fashion rolled into one.


If you're still studying, look approachable with this Girl-Next-Door combo. Don't forget to smile so that your crush won't find you intimidating and/or anti-social. Yes, first impressions are indeed important.


If you're already working, think casual Fridays and dress the look with an eyecatching scarf and perhaps some heels for a more stylish getup. Take inspiration from my previous article on being Chic and Polished.


Another way to look good in denim would be to use denim as your "accessory". One easy trick is to pick a party dress (preferably one that highlights your silhouette) and match it with a denim jacket like so. Such a lifesaver especially for sudden weather changes. You can read more about this look via my post Sweet Mess


Which denim look would you wear? Ending this post with some patriotic-feels, thanks to this huge flag in the background. Needless to say, Kudos to the Philippine Army and to all our heroes around the globe. Thank you for inspiring us that service comes in many forms :)

Stylish Looks for 2018

The most popular month for Wedding Bells has finally arrived. Hello June! Whether you're still single, soon to get hitched or attending as a guest in your friend's wedding, it's always a brilliant idea to know what look you want to arrive in.


First on my list would always be the style and the color of the dress, so when ToSave sent me this dress, I was excited to wear it, as the dress fits well with my personality. ToSave is an online shop where you can shop for various products, from clothes to computer accessories, to video games and the like, at unbeatable prices as the shop claims.


What I love about this bodycon mini dress is it gives off a charming balance of sweet and sultry.  The offshoulder floral applique certainly adds oomph to the look. The fabric is quite thin so if you're a bit conservative, you might want to wear an inner. Other than that, the dress is so chic, not to mention extremely affordable, hence their brand name.


ToSave also has faux accessories. They sent this necklace together with the dress, and it definitely completes my look. So if ever you do get drunk after a night of partying, fret not because you can afford hundreds of them as it is that affordable. If you don't believe me, checkout their 18k gold plated crystal necklace .


Aside from this dress, here are my personal style recommendations for you to standout this 2018. If there's one fashion advice that I tell my readers, it's to always choose the style that you're most comfortable in, as confidence is always key to rocking any look. It actually doesn't matter whether you're wearing a luxury label or not; what matters is how you pull it off. If you're planning to do some shopping, make sure to check the size chart carefully before ordering :)

V Neck Mini Dress


Classy need not be predictable nor boring. 
Surprise your date by sporting a V-neck Mini Dress styled with pleats and a sexy back.


Lace Cocktail Dress


If you're the romantic type, go for something sheer yet classy like this lace cocktail dress
It gives you just the right amount of sex appeal that will make heads turn.

Relax & Unwind

If you’re looking for a place to unwind after a toxic week, then you might want to consider treating yourself to a Wellness Spa that can address your specific needs. Nowadays, there's just so many options to choose from that you have no excuse to not give yourself some well-deserved "me-time".


Just a few days ago, I visited a newly opened wellness center (first quarter 2018) called Royal Oriental Wellness or “ROW” for short, located in #233 Nicanor Garcia Street Makati. The name speaks for itself.


Upon entering, my sister and I were welcomed with warm smiles and some ginger tea. We were also asked to fill in some personal details as SOP. Expect questions like “Are you pregnant?”, and yes it is indeed a valid question to ask because some massage techniques / stretching can be borderline extreme.  It’s always safe to ask, you never know.



So here are some snippets of the interiors of the place. Personally I’d say it’s very modern with an interesting touch of the Orient. It is so cozy that it feels like home. The lighting accentuates the setting.



We were then led to the second floor, to which we each had our own therapists. Do take note that you also have the option to request for a Chinese Master for a more specialized service. 


My sister and I availed of The Royal Signature Foot Massage for 80 minutes. The rate was at Php980. If you choose a Chinese Master, it would be at P1,180. For added comfort, ROW provides an outfit to which you can change in, but you can also opt not to if you don’t want. Just a point of clarification though, The Royal Signature Foot Massage is not purely foot massage.


To me, it’s as I’m availing of a full body massage. It’s definitely worth it, not to mention their beds are so comfortable.

























Big shoutout to my therapist Cherry and Royal Oriental Wellness for pampering me :)


Hope you enjoyed this post! No matter what, after a long week, always find time to relax. Start by listening to your favorite song. Trust me, it will always set the mood.

Little Miss Sunshine

Cool, Calm and Collected. This is my peg for today’s post. A look that is very timely for the month of May. Hopefully good times ahead. Let's all stay positive.


If you’re observant enough, then you’d probably notice that my top is quite loose. Well that’s because I am wearing my dad’s polo. Who says women can’t rock men’s fashion?


Truth is, if I had a boyfriend, I’d probably hoard his closet too. Hopefully he likes the idea. (Laughs) And if he doesn't mind, I can also help choose his outfits...the blogger in me is always at work.


With the proper styling, wearing oversized clothes can be damn sexy. Remember when Ana wore Christian’s clothes in Fifty Shades? Messy or undone hair paired with a polo has so much sex appeal.


Anyways, styling an oversized polo is easy. Just fold both sleeves (I prefer ¾) , then get the ends of the polo and tie a ribbon/knot. For a more revealing look, you can also dress the polo as an offshoulder, doesn’t hurt to get creative. It’s fun that way.


I paired my dad’s polo with fitted jeans and a pair of nude-beige rubbershoes for a casual look.  For the accessories, I went for a gold and black combo for both my earrings and purse. It’s a color combination that never goes out of style. Glamour at its best.

Jeans by Refuge |  Bag from Dorothy Perkins |  Shoes from Shoo In

Welcoming May with so much love! As always, stay cool and chic. Take advantage of the remaining summer days and wear something bright and colorful.

In Full Bloom

One of the best time to go to Japan is definitely Cherry Blossom Season which is from end of March to April. It's just refreshing to be surrounded by these lovely trees in full bloom, how I miss this place, (circa April 2015).


I wish I was traveling right now, but due to so much work responsibilities, I guess it can wait as business is at its peak. Fortunately, I was able to take a quick breather just a month ago in Iloilo (which I hope you were able to read about). Now that summer days ain't over yet, wearing light breathable clothes is a must. My recommended look for days like these is an offshoulder floral dress which in fact reminds me so much of Sakura. 


Take this advice from a woman who has an appetite of a man. If you want to cover unflattering parts like your arms and basically tons of fats everywhere, offshoulder dresses are the quickfix. This style accentuates your curves at about any angle. Plus points for showing just the right amount of skin. 


The peg I went for was something Oriental---a look that is inspired by both China and Japan. Since my dress is printed already, I chose a simple pair of accessory: a ribbon necklace gifted by my bestfriend Jasmin, and a black pair of block heels which I can walk comfortably in when at the mall. For a change, I finished my look with loose curls.

The Cape Dress

Back to work! These past two weeks have been very demanding but despite the stress (and getting sick), I am still grateful that in the process, my sister and I were able to close several deals. Persistence is definitely key to success and we must admit that a little charm and wit definitely helps as well. 


The Built-In-Cape trend may have been introduced a few years back by celebrities in The Oscars, and models in Fashion Week, but I believe this look is here to stay. The outfir is so put together that you can easily sport a classy or casual ensemble with the right pair of accessories.

Dress by Melody |   Sandals by Parisian

In my case, I finished the look with chic block heels and a gold trapeze bag. The drape detailing of the cape is pure sophistication that I need not put much effort in styling it. This is where "less is more" becomes priceless as this is power-dressing at its finest. Whether you feel like wearing it in a  business meeting or even to the mall, it's yours for the taking, as all you need to decide on is the right kind of footwear to match it with.


If there's one thing I learned in business, it's that people are out there to get you. Well, it is undeniably part of human nature, and we all want to have that upperhand at things. All I'm saying is that never get too attached to anything because sometimes your kindness can actually backfire. Trust me, I've been there, done that. If it ain't worth it, let go. Choose your battles well---- similar to that thing we call life.


Life is indeed a journey where we stumble and fall, but with the right kind of attitude and grit, we will be able to surpass those roadblocks. We are our own superheroes (and this dress certainly reminds me of that!) May we all inspire each other to appreciate even the little things. One step at a time, we will all get there.
