The Dreamer

Today's post brings some nostalgia as this was my graduation dress back then.
I managed to find this thru my stack of clothes in the closet.
You can probably guess how old this dress is.


Little black dresses or LBDs are very good investments.
With the right style and silhouette, they will remain a classic!

Dress from Apartment8

Since I'm no longer a student, 
I paired it with some chic heels for a more playful peg.


A big congratulations to the recent graduates of University of the Philippines.
Special mention to Tiffany Grace Uy, Summa Cum Laude of UP.

I may not personally know her but more than the grades she obtained, 
I am impressed by her passion to contribute to medicinal research 
particularly in the field of breast cancer.


It's not everyday that you get to hear young people talk about service and 
love for country and I salute her for that.

If there's one thing I learned in the corporate world as well as in my craft as 
fashion blogger, it's that you have to have a lot of heart in what you do.
For one to be successful, one should be consistent and committed.
Always have the end goal in mind, because in that way,
you are reminded of what you want and 
that's where you draw inspiration from.


Life is a blessing and we should learn to celebrate and cherish it.

Brighter than the Sun

If there's one color that can make you standout, it's definitely yellow.
Now that school has officially started for the young ones,
here's a little outfit suggestion from yours truly.

Pair a yellow ruffled top with some dainty jeans to keep you 
looking fresh and charming all day.


And if you're already working like me,
I suggest changing the color of your pants to something more corporate.
Bring a blazer along just in case it gets a little bit chilly. 


Bright colors bring out your natural glow.
So whether you prefer sporting a pair of colored pants


or those basic black jeans yo go with it, you'll always look all dolled up.


Which look do you prefer?

Going Basic

We all have those days when we're too lazy to dressup.
So here are 3 quick tips on how to look fab without you even trying.


The first golden rule is to pick basic pieces. 
Whether it's a top and bottom combo or a dress, go for a neutral color.  
Colors such as black, beige, gray and white are sophisticated to look at.


Dress from Topping
Flats from Tomato
Sunnies from Fly Shades

The second rule would be to choose a style that fits your personality or mood.
One of my personal recommendation would be sheer fabrics.
It's stylish and sexy, simply perfect for the weather in the Philippines.



Last but not the least, wear a red lippie. 
It screams confidence and instantly makes you look all made up.
No wonder it's the weapon of choice of Hollywood celebrities.

Until next time!

Steal the Look

For today's post, I'm going to share with you some tricks
that can make you look slimmer especially in photos.

I for one am jealous of people who are blessed with sexy genes.
Well, technically, I have always been fat because I don't exercise, 
and yet I eat like one of the boys, I'm to be blamed (lol) :)



So here's a little remedy to hide those imperfections.
I can't guarantee that it would work for everyone but it's worth a try :)

First, choose heels in nude color to elongate your legs like so.


Second, choose a simple yet sexy dress to go with your skin tone.
Teal is a good color in my case and I chose an asymmetrical cut
to bring out a more feminine silhouette.


Simple in front, 


yet a little bit daring at the back.
I got this backless sling-strap chiffon dress from ROMWE 
If you like it, you can check it out at http://www.romwe.com/


Last but not the least, it's all about posture and angles.

Celebrities have all been doing it, so should we.
Make sure to slightly turn your body sideways 
positioning one foot in front of the other. 
Slightly tilt your chin a little bit downward for a beautiful glow.

Hope this helps dear readers. Do make sure to smile and be yourself :)

Ethereal Blue

Maxi dresses have always been an amazing fashion piece. 
It makes petite girls like me look a little bit taller and slimmer.


My peg for this post is an ethereal look. 
If you want to recreate this ensemble,
 start by choosing a color that will bring out your natural glow. 
In my case, Royal Blue is one of those colors.


The next step is to choose the right cut to accentuate the curves of your body.
I recommend cuts that give you a more feminine silhouette like so.


What I love with Maxi Dresses is that they are simple yet elegant.
Special mention to Jin for this beautiful dress.


All you need to do is add a few accessories like a chic belt. 
The Black and Gold color combo never fails to create that classic look.


Complete your look by flashing the prettiest smile you have.
Trust me, it works all the time :)

Of Lace and Stripes

Whoever said that suspenders only fit men should think again. 
This classic borrowed-from-men style 
can also be flattering in women when worn right.


When wearing suspenders, 
it's important to choose a top that is fitted to create a more balanced look.
In fact, such an incredible piece already serves as your own personalized accessory.


I'd personally recommend a tone-on-tone look for a more feminine silhouette.
Make the colors blend in as if they were bought as a pair.



Another great way to create an eye-catching ensemble is by playing with
interesting textures and a mix of some so called graphics.
As they say, fashion is art.

Top from Silver Line
Suspender Skirt from Romwe

For more unique fashion pieces, do checkout ROMWE,
 one of my favorite online stores via http://www.romwe.com/ :)


Remember readers it's all about creating a look that you can call your own.
Sometimes there are styles that won't fit you, that's a given,
but it doesn't mean that you have to limit yourself from
experimenting further. Who knows, you might just like it.


What do you think about this look?
