I Covet: Plum and Purple

I Covet: Plum and Purple

Plum is my color of the moment. I even want it on my hair. I love the dark elegant color but we can say that I’m partial to darker colors. There’s something in a deeper shade that oozes chic and glamour. Just look at that ceramic mug, so pretty. Here I’ve selected items that are very wearable and fashionable as well – except the mug, can’t wear that – although I can’t assure you that they’re not expensive.

I Covet: Cut Out Buckle Boots

I Covet: Cut Out Buckle Boots
This style of boots is fun and for me creates the laid back vibe in any outfit whether you pair it with skirts, shorts, or jeans.

I Covet: Peplum Hem Skirt

Peplum Hem Lust
I wasn’t much of a fan of the peplum waist trend but drop that peplum a few inches lower and we’ve got beautiful skirt hems. My particular favorite in this set is the black and white grid skirt from Asos.

New Finds: May 2014

It’s nearing the end of summer yet it’s still extremely hot and I’m completely broke. So while all I can do is stay at home or wait for friends and relatives to drag me out, I’ve found some interesting sites and random stuff.

BlackFive

I found out about this while I was browsing through my Lookbook.nu feed and I was surprised by the chicness of the items they sell there. My favorite item is this pair of black boots with gold detail.

Clothes Encounters

Jenn Im is an absolute goddess. I love her style and her taste in music and she just seems to live life to the fullest.

Blogilates

I’m not new to Pilates since I took a class during my first semester in college but Cassey Ho’s channel is definitely a must watch. She’s very positive and the community she has built is the same as well. Most importantly her workouts are my favorites. Try the Call Me Maybe Challenge and see.

 

 

 

Some Gifts from my Santa’s

Achoo! This blog is getting a bit dusty so I thought I’d post something.

These are a few pieces I got during the holidays most of which are things I bought with my Christmas money.

This pair of wedges is from Mendrez, I think it’s a local brand, I’m not sure ha-ha. Anyway, I fell in love with the shade of red so I had to buy it. I got it for Php 1200. BUT! I passed by the Mendrez outlet in the mall and it was down to Php 600! And I was like WTH! CAPITALISTS!!!!! So lesson learned, wait til after Christmas for the huge sales to pop out, at least in my country.

Next are these books… The Pelican Brief and Acts of Murder were both impulse buys. I figured I can never have enough mystery on my shelf sooooo. However, the Sherlock Holmes collection was something I’ve been wanting for the longest time. Ever since I’ve startedwatching the BBC series, I vowed to get myself a copy of the canon. And there it is in all it’s mass paperback glory. That’s just Volume I though. It would be better if I could find a copy of Volume II in trade paperback or hardcover!

And last are these bits of makeup products. Just a lip balm from my aunt and BB Cream from my mom. That polka-dotted background is a dress which is also a gift. I’d probably wear it for New Year’s Eve.

Anyway, that’s all there is to this post. Have a good week!

OOTDConverse shoes (old), Oasap bag, Swatch watch, Mum’s shirt. Hype this on Lookbook

I visited Sariaya, Quezon for the first time last Saturday. It was my friend’s birthday celebration and I had a wonderful time. There were so much food to stuff ourselves with. Spent the night there and a great deal of Sunday morning. Also visited streets near my friend’s house and there was a number of tall, grand, old but beautiful houses. The background of the photo is one of the old houses that had collapsed.

The Shorts Story: Spring Edition

The Shorts Story: Spring Edition

Getting bored (as always) so I decided to make another set in Polyvore. It’s actually fun if you’re into collage and pictures and stuff. They almost all clothing and beauty brands there. I’m not sure about tech brands though, but you can go check it out (and follow me if you like 🙂 ).

The Older the Cooler

I am a very sentimental person when it comes to my things. It’s hard for me throw out an old shirt or a worn out pair of jeans. I don’t know why. Because of that I have a lot of old and unused stuff, that until my mom gives them out to charity.

Converse Sneakers

But when I say I don’t want it to go, it doesn’t go anywhere. My first pair of converse was a double lace limited edition. I only use the white pair of shoe lace because I lost one piece of the black one. I’ve had this pair for almost five years now. It’s so overused that the soles are halfway through being frictionless.

I have a lot of other overused stuff in my closet. From shirts, to hoodies, and shorts. But this one, this one I won’t know how to get rid of.
