I’ve been looking for a pair of boyfriend jeans within my budget, with not much luck. Then I took a cue from, in my opinion Manila’s chicest fashion blogger, Kookie Buhain. Her advise was to look for a pair of skinny jeans in a bigger size. So I rummaged through my mom’s stack of old pants and found this pair (she wears a size 28, I’m a 26). Finalleh!!! I have a pair of boyfriend jeans!! Or should I say mommy-boyfriend-jeans!P1090035P1090019

Addicted to crop tops! Crop tops come in all shapes and forms, from bralets, to bandeau tops, to sporty midriffs. It’s when underwear becomes outerwear and we’re allowed to show a little skin in all the sweetest places 😉 Feelin’ a little Dolce & Gabbana-y in this baroque number from Asos.

Tied two scarves together to make a cute halter top. It’s really easy to do and I will do a how-to post on all the scarf styles I come up with by the end of the challenge.

There is no one else I can work with so effortlessly even behind the scenes than my all time favorite partner in crime. I am seriously one of her biggest fans, I always talk about and promote her work every chance I get. She knows exactly how to make her subjects beautiful. She knows just the right moments to capture, I usually don’t even have to do much. With make-up or without, impromptu or not, rest assured the photos will turn out equally amazing.

Ivon Domingo, my frigid, demanding, vain, gorgeous, talented, spunky and thoughtful, couch potato of a friend, you are one of the very few people I keep dear in my heart. I know the universe has great things in store for you.

Nars’ Schiap is my new favorite lipstick shade! You guys know how much I love a splash of pink here and there 🙂 It’s a few shades darker and more matte than MAC’s Pink Nouveau, it’s deliciously Barbie-like.

This bag is as old as me. My mom bought it at Rustan’s after I was born, or so she says. I’m very lucky my mom has really good taste and doesn’t buy expensive tacky things that are only good as it is on trend and become something you would never wear after one season.

These leather shorts are from an Ukay Ukay (thrift store) near my house, it was at the 8 for 100 pesos rack can you believe it???!!!! It just has a few tiny scratches in front but it’s so cuuute!! I will write a post about my purchases that day next time.
