Fashion Bloggers Loot

3 Comments

I got several stuff from the bloggers united event this afternoon. My little girl helped me document my loot

Didn’t even ask her to do this… I think what she really wants to do is to see if it fits her =p
I love this skulls piece… so hubby yet so posh. (Hubby is into skulls and bones, Affliction and all. So this is my counterpart 🙂 ) The best thing about this is that I got it for an unbelievable price of Php200! Niiice!

I’m loving trinkets again. The good finds. I want to shop for more!

My Style

Leave a comment

Attending the fashion bloggers event made me realize one thing: I’m gona stick to my style. Dress up my style. Not anybody’s.

I saw a lot of young bloggers in the event today, Bloggers United, at the Malayan Plaza in Ortigas. They dress up so hip and fashionable, with sky high heels and straight-from-the-runway-slash-chictopia look. Don’t get me wrong, I love em! I love how they can carry the clothes with passion. I’m all praise with their confidence.

But just a realization: Its easy to buy clothes similar to this, and shoes like that. But if its not your style and you can’t carry them with passion, don’t waste your time. You are better off with your OWN STYLE.

You know its yours when you are comfortable with it 🙂

P.S.
I tried on this super nice shoes from shoe etiquette. At the price they were giving, its a steal!  I just didn’t buy it be-cause I couldn’t bring myself to walk in sky high anymore. Not that I wore these kind when I was single, but back then, I had the social events and the strength to wear it. Now is not the right time. But if anyone is up for shoe grabs, check this one out!

Fashion Challenge: No Neutrals

2 Comments

My first attempt in documenting my wardrobe was during pregnancy. I find it a challenge to dress up with a baby bump, thus preggy wardrobe was born.

Now, I find it more of a challenge because I am not comfortable with my body. I so hate the un-proportion-ness! But I guess that adds to the challenge. And without a conscious effort on my part, this problem is going to take long.

You see, I am tall (by Philippine standards), I am not well-endowed , more of not endowed altogether in that area , I never lost my post pregnancy belly, if not alcohol-slash-genetic belly, and I’ve got the post pregnancy hips.

So yes, looking at my wardrobe with no fashion challenge is already a challenge in itself. If I do this, its gona be a personal achievement for me.

Day 1: No Neutral

I know, I know, white is neutral. But hey! Did you know, that that mini has never been worn? or maybe once but I don’t remember. Its been sitting in my closet for years, counting 6 years maybe… and its all because of the color. So lets take it slow… wearing it on an actual day out is a biggie for my style.

Paired my mustard mini with a sharp colored teal shrug

Capped it off with bronze slip on heels, stone-flowered necklace
and a bejeweled ring

Skirt: Terranova
Shrug: DKNY (Thanks sissy!)
Tee: Maldita
Shoes:
Ring: Bazaar
Necklace: bought from mom’s friend back in 2004

My Fashion Challenge

Leave a comment

Every now and then, when I surf fashion blogs, I see a lot of fashion challenges. As part of my (un)official entrance to the fashion scene (F is for FnaF! haha), and to at least check one of my 2011 resolution, I am going into a fashion challenge of my own. Here are 2 fashion challenges that I plan to start with:

1. COLOR BLOCKING: Go a week without going neutrals idea here

2. The 15:30 challenge

Enter the Felicia Sullivan 15:30 challenge. Felicia (author, fashionista, and all-around lovely person) recently blogged about this very topic: how we have closets FULL of clothesthat we don’t fully appreciate or utilize. So she devised a challenge: pick 15 pieces from your wardrobe and wear them for a month. Mix and match, accessorize — be creative and make the MOST of those pieces. Idea from here

Have you tried any fashion challenge? How did it go? I’ll keep you posted. I even made a new category on this blog — “wardrobe/fashion”. Lets do this!

P.S.
Upon looking at my wardrobe, I’m gona have a hard time with no neutrals. Majority of my clothes are black, white and earth tones. Maybe I’d have to pass this for now. Until I collect some more 🙂

If this is not bling, I don’t know what is

Surfing possible resource site, my clicker hands led me to InStyle online.

Look what I found!

Chopard diamond ring

This really is a BLING DUCK. The perfect fashion accessory for me & the team.
But it’s Chopard, good luck on the price

The Bandwagon

Leave a comment

And so I’ve joined the bandwagon.

It doesn’t require me to be fashionable, but its my excuse. Needles to say, the inner fashionista in me wants to break free. Am I up for the challenge?

I’m the classic girl. That’s my sense of style. The earth tones and plains. Slip-ons and flats.

Its the perfect time to step-up. I’ll be more adventurous. But knowing me, I’d still go for something classic and safe. I can’t pull up a bold unconventional get-up. Or can I? I don’t know, we’ll see. I’ll take it one step at a time. I guess the most important tip I can give myself is stop being conscious. And keep in mind: walk the talk 😉
