I’ve worn this outfit countless of times, and even blogged about it 2 years ago. I’m posting it again on my blog because of these awesome photos Greg Hector took of me during a break at work. He likes pit bulls, camping, fruity drinks, Volkswagen’s, anything vintage, anything in black or grey – you should stalk him on instagram: http://instagram.com/based_lavenderr.

2013 has taught me so much. I’ve learned to be more independent, to live for myself and not for anybody else. I’ve learned to value my family and my true friends more. The cherry on top of an amazing year is that I’ve found real and unconditional love.

I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for me.

I hope you all had a great year! 🙂

drool worthy: mini pashli

fall in la


There’s no place more perfect for transitional dressing than California. Despite the bipolar weather all year round (annoyingly hot one minute, disturbingly cold the next), I love fall in LA because it’s always acceptable to wear sweaters, boots and..yes, bare legs ♥
 mini pashli
But that’s not what this post is about, it’s about my long time obsession with the  3.1 Phillip Lim’s mini pashli. I can only buy one and I haven’t decided if I want the red or the black. I’m leaning towards the black more though because black just never gets old and is wearable throughout the changing seasons.
What are you guys obsessing about?

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!

feels like we only go backwards

If you read my blog, you know this is my daily uniform: short shorts and a white top. Even though I like to pretend that I have all the time in the world to dress up, I really don’t. It helps that I own tons of shorts and flowy white tops.

I am so obsessed with my necklace and hand chain from Fresh Out of Water LA! You will definitely see more of these accessories on future blog posts. If you love feminine, vintage inspired jewelry check out their site. They have a great collection of well curated hand and body jewelry.

I love printed pants, if you’ve been reading my blog you know I’m a lazy dresser and I like pieces that instantly spice up an outfit. I’m all for statement pieces that don’t need a lot of thinking to pair with. You could wear this with flip flops, a basic tank top with huge earrings and you will still look very put together. What do you guys think?

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

First outfit post from LA!! I can’t believe I’m back here, it feels so surreal.

One thing I love about living in California is the weather, it’s never TOO cold. You can still get away with a coat and the tiniest shorts without looking silly. I’ve been looking for an oversized military jacket and I found this at a thriftstore in Ilocos, authentic from the US Army, pretty cool huh?

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
