This is the only time I’ve ever worn two pieces of heavily embellished clothing, without looking like I’m an old lady’s Christmas Tree. I got this pair of Valentino Rockstud-esque flats from Zara, on sale for $30, such a score! I like the subtle embellishments and the nude color because it can be girly, edgy or whatever I want it to be.

I’m so sorry for the slew of lackluster posts. More blog posts next week!


drool worthy: almost leather weather

leather weather

Balenciaga motorcycle jacket / Yves Saint Laurent motorcycle jacket / Balmain motorcycle jacket / Alexander McQueen motorcycle jacket / Acne Studios motorcycle jacket / Topshop motorcycle jacket
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!

bells and whistles

Living in the more tropical side of the Philippines, I could not wait to go back to LA while it’s still cold so I could layer it up with some jackets and tights and boots and wear faux fur. Haha!! I’ve always known Los Angeles had the most ideal weather in the country but boy did I take this cold for granted!! I don’t remember it being this cold when I was in highschool, or maybe that’s because I was always in my uniform and that I got here during summer time while it was still hot and I adjusted better with the changing seasons o_0 Now I seriously don’t have enough clothes for this weather! I had to change into a sweater before meeting my friend downtown.P1090130 P1090134 P1090147

I’ve always wanted a pair of polarized wayfarers but everything I find is usually too small for my face 😦 So I was so happy when I found this pair of sunglasses from Cotton On!! I don’t know if it’s the polarized sunglasses, the aztec print, the orange lips or the hair but I just realized how 80’s surfer chick inspired this outfit looked as a whole. Eyeeeloveeettte!!!!

windy, baby

[maxi dress: forever 21, leather jacket, bag: louis vuitton, chains: DV, pyramid bangle: gift from a friend, retro gold watch: casio, artsy ring: designers overstock, lipstick: nars’ schiap]

I think the maxi dress – leather jacket combo is very appropriate for a chic windy weather outfit for the tropics. 

My friend D, got me this pyramid bangle for Christmas. My always so sweet boyfriend got me the retro gold Casio watch I’ve always wanted!

louder than ever

My style varies because of the music I listen to.  I can be grungy today and bohemian the next. I guess one thing my outfits have in common is a little dose of my first love: rock and roll. It’s fun when you don’t take fashion seriously 🙂

[lace tunic: forever 21, jacket: the ramp, feather earring: maris online, canvas bag, wedges: parisian]

I will give these wedges a rest after the 30 days, I promise! Taking pictures for blog posts gets really annoying sometimes. You have to stand there by yourself, do a little pose and what not and people who pass you by think you’re weird, funny or narcissistic for whatever it is you’re doing. Living in the province doesn’t make it any easier either because clothes out of the everyday shorts and havaianas flip flops is already eye catching enough.


challenge accepted! day 13


[feather earring: maris, jacket: the ramp, tunic: forever 21, black wedges: parisian]

This is one very random night. My friend Dandy, me and my brothers went out for coffee then we ended up driving around town out of sheer spontaneity.

This is actually my favorite out of the three sets!
