Appreciating Art in Vietnam

Going into Ho Chi Minh’s Fine Arts Museum felt like I was sneaking into someone’s mansion during the olden times. As it turns out, it was actually originally a mansion before it was turned into a museum. Mr. Hoa, the wealthiest man of Saigon during the 1920s, owned this yellow and white grand colonial-era mansion. […]

Ho Chi Minh

My short trip to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam was the most relaxed trip I’ve ever had last year. I had no itinerary planned so I had no idea what to expect. Good thing I had a friend who was familiar with the city to show me around. It was still a pretty chill schedule though. […]

A dress is only a dress until you style it up and make it into your own. I’ve always been a staunch believer of this. You can have all the expensive and pretty clothes you want but they can never reach their true potential unless you work them–work them from head to toe. Everything from […]

Killer

I guess when the phrase “killer shoes” was coined, these gladiator heels weren’t far behind. Look at them, ready for battle. They were the perfect complement to my outfit–a classic button-down blouse and embroidered velvet shorts. This is how you take a simple outfit to the next level and transform day to night. It doesn’t […]

Back At Jardin Du Luxembourg

As tempting as it is to wear a fancy dress and shoot all dramatically at the grand Jardin Du Luxembourg, it’s not exactly the most practical thing to wear when you’ve got a full day of “touring your sister around Paris” planned. Yes, I’m still at it–still playing tour guide to my sister because it’s […]

Best Face Forward

I know I should be starting my long-promised travel series from Paris and Barcelona already, but due to my busy schedule lately, I can’t seem to find the time to sit down and sift through the gazillion photos I took. YET AGAIN. All this sounds too familiar, doesn’t it? I never seem to learn! I […]

Flannel Fan

Maybe it’s the 90s kid in me but I’ve always like flannel. Whether it’s on trend or not, there wasn’t a time in my life that I didn’t have flannel in my closet. This must’ve been the reason why it came so natural for me to style Uniqlo’s flannel shirts during the recently concluded Uniqlo […]

If you want to play it safe when it comes to business-appropriate attire, you should consider sticking to plain neutral colors and simple silhouettes. It’s hard to offend or distract anyone when you’re wearing something that’s universally accepted to be pleasing to the eyes, no matter where you’re from or what industry you’re getting into. […]
