drool worthy: almost leather weather

leather weather

I’ve always wanted to buy a real leather jacket, but I always put it off to buy more wearable things like shoes or purses specially since I always feel like I’m bound to come across a nice leather jacket when the time comes anyway. I live in LA, and you can’t really wear leather all year round so it’s not something you buy on your impulse buying spree.
Here’s a few of the pieces I’ve been lusting over…enjoy the eye candy!

One of the things I love about Los Angeles is how much it embraces graffiti art to a point where it has already become a part of the city’s identity. Graffiti House LA houses amazing indoor murals from it’s members, as well as canvas paintings and other art work on its walls.IMG_3891IMG_3897

I’ve been stocking up on plain colored maxi dresses lately. With loose hair and a pair of flats, it instantly makes me feel like Serena van der Woodsen on a sunny day. Change it up with a pair of heels and a clutch and you’ve got the perfect dinner date outfit.

This dress from Chi Chi London has that Dolce and Gabbana feel to it. I rarely go without stacks and stacks of accessories but I think the baroque dress already makes a statement enough on its own. What do you guys think? šŸ™‚

I’m one of the resident judges of the LIBNOS: Ilocandia Model Search. LIBNOS is a team up between Robinsons Ilocos Norte and Burn Productions to showcase our local model talents.

Libnos: Week 1

With this weeks judges, Jaynny Lao who designed their swimsuit for theĀ photo shoot, and photographer Glenn Tumaneng. Judging is so scary I tell you! Hardest part would have to be judging the male models. I also went on a short lived guilt trip after the first elimination :\ I don’t know how I’m gonna last til Finals. Haha!!

Drop by Robinsons Mall, San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte every Saturday of this month, between 3:30-5:30PM and watch the LIBNOS model search with me šŸ™‚

While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out DUPE located at the south wing entrance of Robinsons IN for affordable and stylish flip flops!
