The Brightside

| |
Hi there my loves! How are you doing today? I hope everything is fine. 
Be happy and always smile! :)

I feel happy, sexy, comfortable and confident in what I'm wearing today. The colors are so vibrant that gives a summer-ish appeal. I teamed up my neon green blouse with floral-tropical shorts and red loafers. I choose simple gold accessories and colorful sunglasses to polish off my look.

Back to leopard with clashing color

| |
Hi, lovelies! How's your day? Be happy, thankful and always smile. ^_^ 

Remember this quote from Helen Keller.

“Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.” 

For some people, animal print is too wild and bold but there are so many ways to wear animal print. If you're wearing an animal print skirt, you can tone it down by wearing a single colored top and a nude shade of footwear. Another way of toning down a big animal print is by wearing accessories like scarf or bag that draw attention to it but make sure it will complement or blends well with your wild print. 
Here, I opted to pair my black-grayish leopard blouse [it has spikes in the collar- so cool!] with an orange shorts with subtly embossed/printed patterns. [I normally want to go for a printed and texture combination.] I did this styling for a fun, young and new way to wear the wild print. Not everyone like this idea but I believe this is a great mode giving a fresh and youthful feeling. I also picked a wedge sandals in neutral color.
 Simple accessories like these gold rosette studs and colorful bracelet completed my look.
There are many shades to choose from, you just have to be certain which one best suits you. I really love this style idea and remember the key here is to go for a single vibrant color.

Dressing up at your best

| |
Hi, lovelies! How are you doing today? Smile, smile, smile... spread the good cheer everyday. ^_^

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel

When I started this blog, the majority of my posts are not about fashion or styling tips. At first, my blog is intended for my vacation trips, some parts of my daily life and random rants. But I've decided last August 2013 to include fashion/outfit styling ideas. In this case, I get to document my style and look back to see how my style improve trough the years.

There are so many good things about writing especially about fashion. I must say that it's an outlet for creativity and an opportunity to share cool ideas or advice with a bigger audience which has also connected me to a lot of amazing people all over the world.

Once in a while I get an email telling me that my blog posts are nice and sometimes readers appreciate my writings. It's a nice feeling when other people appreciate what you do and those appreciation became an inspiration for me to do better.

Stephanie emailed me this great question yesterday, "I will go to college next school year and I still can't figure out my style or how to dress nicely because I'm chubby. I live in jeans and t-shirts, I'm afraid dresses or shorts will not look great on me. I really adore dresses but lacking some confidence. Please give some advice on how to look good and dress myself. Thanks!" -Stephanie

Here's my answer, Stephanie, I totally understand you and honestly during my college days; I also live in jeans, shirts and rubber shoes. I wore these type of clothes for 4 years, I seldom buy new one because I'm on a tight budget and the money I have is only for transportation and food allowances. Some people laugh at me and saying that I'm "baduy". [Baduy is a Filipino slang meaning unfashionable, conservative, poor taste] There's nothing wrong with these type of clothing, it's actually very comfortable to wear. It's just that, during those years when I'm still studying, I can't have a good pair of sandals, can't have nice shorts and skirt or dresses. Buying these stuff is not my priority and I DON'T CARE whether they call me "baduy". I know myself better than anyone else, I can be a regular lady in jeans+shirt or a gorgeous elegant lady that you can imagine. I have this attitude like Coco Chanel: “I don't care what you think about me. I don't think about you at all.” 

It's just a matter of purpose, motivation, self-confidence and finding your style. Some people that like fashion don't make an effort because it can take time, not a "great day" or simply not practical. You should give purpose to your fashion. Whether you're going to the mall or just working at home, say to yourself that "Today, I want to look pretty and go to my favorite coffee shop and do my work there." Anything can be your motivation that will bring you to dress better. 

If you're a regular chick that likes to wear jeans and shirt , it's okay. No one is forcing you to wear and walk in heels but if you're the type of lady who wants to try different styles then this is the time to experiment. Fashion is actually an excellent way to figure yourself out what looks good on you and what's not. Dressing well gives you self-confidence. When you look at yourself in the mirror and think you look awesome, you'll feel good all day. 

A well-dressed woman looks put together. People will like you if you have a great personality but with combined great style, they will not forget you. You're not dressing up because you want to stand out from the crowd or to get noticed. What you want is to make a good impression and draw the "right" kind of attention.

 If you walk with your head up, have an attitude in carrying your style, have some confidence, purpose and motivation then this mean you'll have a GREAT STYLE.

Thank you very much! I hope this help you in any way. :)

Eclectic Bohemian

| |
Hello everyone! I hope you're having a great day! :)

I'm absolutely in love with boho-chic fashion. I like this style with an edge just like 'A' my favorite liar from Rosewood.

I've spotted my floral print flowy dress and some cool high socks and voila! It's perfect for my sweet-eclectic bohemian babe look.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable" - Helen Keller

Eclectic Bohemian- Thigh high socks, floral print flowy dress, oxford shoes, leather jacket and leopard bag

Edgy Boho-chic flair is my favorite and I feel comfortable with these floral print dress, heeled oxfords and thigh high socks.  I accentuate my waist with a belt and for more edgy look I wear my super cool leather jacket.

Little Miss Sunshine

| |
Hi, lovelies! How's your day so far? I hope everything is okay.

Me and my Hubby love picnics in the park. I like it more than going to the mall.  
I love good conversation, actively listening and sharing dreams or ideas. 
I love to cook Italian dishes like spaghetti, carbonara and baked macaroni and he likes to prepare the drinks.

Anyway, let's proceed to my outfit post for today.

Let's talk about  midriff tops, what's the first thing comes to your mind when you hear 'midriff top'? Mine would be - a little too revealing because it shows off some of the abdomen. Some are comfortable showing skin and some are more comfortable with just a peek-a-boo of skin.

You may pair it with a skirt with adjustable belt wherein you have the freedom to adjust according to how much skin you're showing.

Pair it with a high-waisted shorts or pants. This is perfect because you'll feel very comfortable and it gives you the cover you want.
People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within. ~ Elizabeth Kübler-Ross ~

It's always hot and humid in Singapore, so wearing light clothing is a must. I've decided to wear my little sunshine bandage midriff top with printed shorts. The shorts I'm wearing is not high-waisted though. But I have a cardigan ready with me. :)

Always bring a jacket, cardigan or blazer when wearing a midriff top for an extra cover.

Always be confident and comfortable in the clothes you wear.

Love.Honor.Understanding. Blushing beauty

| |
Hi there lovelies! How are you today? 
Always smile, dress up & think positively!

I am wearing PINK! Yay! This color provides femininity, nurture, warmth and sensitivity. Pink symbolizes love, romance and empathy. It is softer than the passion that red brings replacing it with a gentle loving energy. Pink also has a calming effect which reassures emotional power, alleviating feelings of anger, fear and abandonment.

I feel really pretty in my rose pink blouse and candy color shorts.  I don't wear pink clothes that much because it's too girly, but I love this outfit. I feel comfortable and confident. The atmosphere and my mood suddenly changed and I believe I felt the innocence and intense sweetness inside me.
