Playing with Some Plains and Prints

July 31, 2013

It is a common practice to pair a printed apparel with a plain one so as to strike a balance for the entire look. And that is just what I did with the outfit I am sharing for today. I paired this pair of leggings that I bought from SM Department Store (which is the same pair I wore in this outfit post) with this plain yellow tank top from YRYS. But to make things more interesting, I decided to layer up by wearing this blouse from Blush (my favorite SM Kids' Fashion brand). I really like the outcome of the entire look given the yummy color combination of the tank top and blouse. 

blouse P499.75 - Blush(SM Dept. Store)
tank top P200.00 - YRYS
printed leggings P175.00 (50% off) - Shopaholic (SM Dept. Store)
Sandals P1499.75 - Folded and Hung
necklace P250.00 - Jellybean


For my accessories, I opted for simple ones that would just blend in with the colors present with my outfit, hence this long necklace made of wooden material from Jellybean, and my yellow ring from St. Francis. Same idea was applied with my choice of footwear, since its colors can be found in the prints of my leggings as well. And I want to emphasize again that this pair of chunky-heeled sandals are very comfortable to wear that I could endure wearing it the entire day. If only I could pair it with any outfit that I'd like to wear (or I hope I could find something like this with a different color haha!). So what can you say about this look?


By the way, has anyone able to check the members only sale earlier? I went to Megamall this afternoon and bought some nice items from Forever21! It seemed like I got one of the items I bought for free given the discount they offered today. I will make sure to share the outfits I came up with them so I hope you visit this blog again. Have a great day!

Grecian-Themed Wedding

July 29, 2013

Another wedding related post! few years ago, I had the privilege of getting invited to a wedding of my friends Shils and Isaac. I was really excited to attend their wedding that time since I haven't seen them for years (they are already working abroad), and the fact that they still included me in their guest list made me feel special as their friend. It was also to be noted that they decided that it would be a themed wedding:Grecian, and it would be my first time to attend such. And below was the outfit that I decided to wear on the couple's special day.
dress P915.00 - Forever21
sandals - Gibi shoes
headpiece turned to arm accesosory P200.00+ - Forever21


I was so happy that I was able to acquire this dress from Forever21, aside from the fact that the style and color was very fitting for the theme of the wedding, the price was also budget-friendly. I wanted the dress to stand out given that it already has a pretty detail on the right shoulder so I decided to only use the following to complete my look: the accessory I got from the same store for my arm,  a pair of round earrings (color gold), these gold heels from Gibi. I forgot the brand of the bag that I used (as seen in the second photo) but it was also in color gold. Do you like the outcome of the look? Pleasel et me know by writing some comments below *smile*.


To the couple, Shils and Isaac, I know that we haven't really talk and updated each other but I'm glad to know (mostly through FB) that you two are happy living a wonderful married life abroad. I'll always pray for a healthy relationship and that God bless both of you and hear all your prayers to Him. Know that I'm just a click away if you need someone to talk to. Continue loving and caring for one another. Take care!

Taylor Lautner in Manila on August 17

July 28, 2013

This is good news for all Jacob Black fans out there (including me)! Bench has already released the final details for the Hollywood star's visit to Manila yesterday morning, and I'm sure there are shoppers who already went to their favorite Bench branches to shop and avail of the invites. Below is the official ad photo, which contains the mechanics of the fun meet:

My friends and I are already sure to attend his fun meet. Anyone of you who is interested to attend this as well? Let me know by commenting below. Great day to all!

Watch Your Back

July 25, 2013

I really love it when I think of a title for a certain blog post then I searched it in Google, something related to music comes up. "Watch Your Back" turned out to be the sixth album of a certain blues guitarist Guitar Shorty, and it also happen to be one of the songs of a band named The Kingpins. The singer in me feels happy when this happens sorry haha!



Anyway, my outfit for today is a cute dress that I bought form Mint Megamall. I forgot how much I paid for this exactly  but I remember that this is on sale so I think it was around P500.00 I like the gold and light green print of the skirt part plus the brown band detail that acts as a belt. You can work with any of the colors present in the dress and this is what I came up as overall look.


I've been wearing this to work from time to time. But I always make sure that I wear a cardigan or bolero along with it. The picture below shows the reason why: the dress has a big cutout at the back! I like that it was designed that way though. The cutout gives that element of surprise for this simple piece of clothing, which makes it good to wear from office then to a night out with friends.



Time really flies fast and we are almost done with July! I'm already excited for August since I have lots of activities scheduled on that month. I'll make sure to share with you those things as they happen. Have a fabulous Friday everyone!





 Dress P500.00 - Mint
Sandals P700.00- Gibi Shoes
Ring P139.00 - Yhansi

Good news to mommies and daddies, or to anyone who has little ones living with them (sister,brother etc.)! SM Kids Fashion will be having a warehouse sale starting tomorrow, July 26, that will last until Sunday. I know it is a bit off for those people that get their pay at the end of the month, but you might still want to check this one so you'll be aware of good items for the kids. I still have a sister around this age so I'll go to megamall this weekend and hopefully score some great finds. Happy shopping to us then! 




Just Delivered Jeans Fashion Show 2013 at SM Mall of Asia

July 23, 2013

As promised, I am now sharing the photos that I have from Just Delivered Jeans (Year 4) Fashion Show last Saturday. I was really looking forward to this event since I wanted to see Hideo Muraoka in person, who is one of the Brazilian-Japanese models that are making names here in Manila (along with Daniel Matsunaga, Fabio Ide, and Akihiro Sato). I've already seen the three guys when I joined a fun run years ago but Hideo became my favorite among them (and I blame it on the posters that you see inside SM Department Store haha!). So imagine how happy I am that I finally met him!

The host for that event was Shamcey Supsup. She was a total morena beauty and I love her skin color so much (yay for morena!).

I forgot the name of this Hip Hop group, but they did show great moves as opening number for the fashion show. I wish I could dance just like them.

Being the main man of SM Men's Fashion, Hideo was always the first one to walk on the runway. And along side him were Fabio Ide and Rafa. I like the jeans and the jackets that these three wore that day. Too bad my father's size is too big. And my brother, well he is someone who needs convincing when buying these types of pants haha!

This is the part where all the girls were screaming already. All the models first threw black shirts as giveaways, then one by one they took they shirts off and gave them away to the audience as well.

I didn't know that there would be an autograph signing for the three lead models (Hideo, Fabio and Rafa) of the fashion show. SM really knows how to make shoppers happy. My friend Krissie and I lined up for this of course!

And finally, my favorite photo from this set. Hideo is really super nice to accommodate other people even after the autograph signing. Now I know why he is blessed with these opportunities. You might want to check out his blog if you want to know more information about him (http://hideomstyle.blogspot.com).

Comfy in My Jeans

July 22, 2013

I knew beforehand that my Saturday (July 20) would be a hectic one. I have to go to three events so I decided to wear comfy clothes that will allow me to move around the entire day. Good thing that the first two events were both hosted at Mall of Asia. And in terms of the color I'm wearing, I'm pretty sure you know where I went first haha!



I already planned on wearing jeans that day since I would go to SM Just Delivered Jeans Fashion Show. I know I'm just one of the regular audience there, but why not dress the part? Besides, Penshoppe is part of the brands that they are promoting. I've already worn this here and I can say that it is my favorite pair of jeans because of the right fit and comfort I get when I'm wearing it.



I thought of using this cropped sleeveless top from Bench since I was already covered from waist below. I've used this top once when we had our company outing last year. And since my schedule also included watching our basketball team's game, it was really meant for that day! What do you think of the outfit? I was able to last until late night (I attended a get-together with my batchmates) since this outfit is also commute-friendly.

I will be sharing photos (and hopefully videos) that I took from SM Mens Fashion Show tomorrow so I hope you drop by my blog again. The three main man of the show, Hideo, Fabio and Rafa are all very nice so I'm really excited for that post. Have an amazing Tuesday everyone!
