Shirtsleeve

Top from Landmark // Skirt from @modamnl on Instagram // Bag from Parisian

Pardon the cliche title, nonetheless, it's great song by Ed Sheeran. The Multiply album is still on repeat as we speak and I suggest you go listen to it now so you can understand my attachment.

 This shirt is one of my favorite purchases ever, not just because of its sleeves like the blog title gives away (lol), but the fact that it's oversized, has lace and it's in color mint. Those are some of my underrated favorite things and they're all mashed up in this top. And I have a thing for wearing skirts nowadays, they're comfortable and flowy unlike shorts and pants. My carefree alter-ego has been unleashed while walking around Bonifacio Global City, which is a place I absolutely adore. I have been wanting to shoot for a blog post in this vicinity. Although far from where I live, plus the heavy traffic in C-5, it's worth the drive. The malls, boutiques, restaurants, clubs and not to mention their newly opened 4D cinema in High Street is what keeps BGC the place-to-be. I love that I got to enjoy this day even more, frolicking the streets with these pretty gals.

With Advent and Ingrid ♥

I hope everyone is safe and sheltered despite experiencing typhoon Glenda two days ago. I hope people are coping with the rotating brownout and the fact that in some places, electricity still hasn't been restored ever since the typhoon struck. There were a lot of destroyed properties, including my school, and I hope repairs will be done immediately. My heart goes out to everyone who's in suffering because of the calamity. Stay dry and keep safe!

Net-A-Porter x Sugar For Spike Giveaway

Sugar For Spike is pleased to announce the release of its debut collection editorial lookbook.
The inspiration behind the lookbook comes from two friends, looking for an escape from the perfectionism and commercialism of their city, where they stumble into a “secret” underground hangout to have a little carefree fun. 
Dancing and twirling throughout the night, and forgetting whom they are and what the world deems as appropriate behaviour, they end up discovering that the liberation from the night out will be one of the memories they will treasure about their youth. 






The collection is slated to release at select retailers and online at sugarforspike.com on 7th August 2014. The line is also available for pre-order now, with free international shipping. Closing date for pre-orders is 10th July 2014.

Sugar for Spike is also giving away $500 worth of Urban Decay vouchers!!!


For giveaway mechanics, go to http://launch.sugarforspike.com/

The giveaway ends on July 11, 2014, 9pm.

Goodluck ladies!

Dungaree Love

(as requested by Icee lol)
Crop top from Forever 21 // Thrifted dungaree // Boots from Australian

This was the second set from my shoot with Icee, and yes I am currently queuing this post as we speak because I will either be too lazy or too busy to post this on July. I will officially start my junior year in college on July 1st and I am quite excited to be honest because mainly I like my majors and especially my elective (Popular and Creative Writing). Despite a tough semester ahead, I will try my hardest to post as much as possible because I want to take blogging seriously and basically build my life around it. 

Now about the what I'm wearing, I have 3 words: IT'S MY FAVORITE. I have been desperately trying to achieve the grunge look and now that I have, I am screeching to the highest extent. I had a hard time choosing the photos to be posted because everything looks so good. I might just squeeze in some on my Instagram. Anyway, here's a rad mix to pump up your July.

A Grey Matter






Dress from Trunk Show // Shoes from Converse

I have got to stop abandoning my blog for this long. I'm sorry I have just been so lazy and uninspired to keep up with my blog without an outfit post but luckily I have gathered some inbetweeners whenever I am lacking one so watch out for that. Anyway, isn't this dress so edgy? I mean, the back is a hundred percent scene stealer. And all the more shocking thing is...MY MOM PICKED OUT THIS DRESS! She has got an eye for fashion that's for sure. I wore this dress at the Style Origin at Fairview Terraces wherein Allison Harvard from America's Next Top Model and Tim Yap held a talk on fashion (see my Instagram post here). When we were shooting this, I brought heels but decided on the last minute that I would rather wear my nifty converse sneakers. I, for one, am not a big fan of heels, pumps, stilletos and the like. They hurt. That is all I can say regarding this matter. Besides, it looks more fun and wild this way which is what I always go for in my outfit choices. 

And since I have been gone for too long, I owe you guys a ton of songs. So here's Ed Sheeran's new album Multiply and trust me when I say, every single song is perfection. 


Enjoy!

The Perfect Pitch

Thrifted Dodgers shirt | Thrifted navy blue shorts | Snapback and sneakers from Vans | Aztec socks from Forever 21

Disclaimer: I don't play baseball nor have I ever played once. I just had to clear that up, it just so happens that I love this t-shirt so much, and another disclaimer, it's my brother's shirt, not mine. I also researched as to who is this "Robinson" dude is, at the back of my shirt and apparently his full name is Jackie Robinson. He was an American baseball player who became the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era (Wikipedia ). I really like to incorporate that fun fact to this post, I was emphasizing his name at the back of my shirt so it doesn't hurt to do a little research about this baseball legend. If you haven't noticed until now, I really do like being a bit sporty and urban with my outfits. It has been a long-running addiction of mine. 

Anyway, happy February guys! Summer is just around the corner.

Under Control

Beanie from @bttmnl (on instagram) | Racer top (worn inside) from a bazaar | Houndstooth jumper dress from Sugar & Spice

I know it's been 12 days since the new year celebration but I'd still like to bid everyone a happy 2014!!! Yes it's been quite a while, when have I not went on a hiatus anyway? Lol. It's becoming a habit and I'm sorry about that, aside from the lack of inspiration, school has been seriously getting in the away, occupying almost all of my free time. The holidays was quite a busy season for me as well, having my dad come home to Manila, we decided to take a family trip to Baguio. It was, of course, cold and breezy which made go full-on fall outfit from head to toe. I hope this 2014, I can try to post as much as I can. I love fashion blogging so I won't stop pursuing it any time. 

Anyway, I hope you've noticed the massive improvement of my photos and that's because my friend (which I will credit at the end of this post) offered to be my photographer for my posts from now on! I can already feel the change in my year, starting with my blog. My year will also kick off with a trip to Cebu next week for the Sinulog festival! I am beyond excited having my friends tagging along to share this experience with. It will be insanely amazing. I will be definitely blogging about it afterwards. Also, I'd like to hear your plans for 2014 as well, may it be a new year's resolution or an adventure just like mine, just hit me of here on my blog. Love you guys!

Chill Pill

Inner shirt from Gap | Thrifted denim vest | Drop-waist skirt from Moda MNL | Shoes from Vans 



It surprises me how I got to blog once again in just one week! I do have a lot of free time after all. I'm under the impression that my classes are just starting to warm up after that long semestral break. I don't have anything blog-worthy to share right now, thought I'd just drop an outfit post here now because I might lose the opportunity when a wave of school works and extra-curricular activities come my way soon. 

By the way, Midnight Memories came out today and I highly recommend everyone to get a copy. One Direction flaunts their song-writing skills and their fresher and edgier sound. Bubblegum pop ain't evident, my friend.
