The Rugged Life

I got inspired by my current playlist on Deezer so I thought I’d dress a bit like a rugged rock star sans the boots for my magazine shoot that day. Owen Sarmiento, one of my favorite makeup artists ever, did my makeup for the shoot. He was totally digging my turn to the dark side (both fashion and […]

Love From Japan

You see this crowd? We’ve all been standing in line for at least 4 hours–just to taste fresh sushi from the best restaurants around Tsukiji market. Originally, we wanted to watch the bidding inside the market but in order to do so, you need to go there extra early. We got to the market around […]

Crown Of Flowers

When my assistant Clariss saw my flower crown, she exclaimed, “wow, Dyosa lang!” LOL. Why did I hire this woman?! Sometimes, I find myself asking this question all too often. Anyway, jokes aside, before goddesses, fairies and nymphs come to mind, flower crowns actually remind me more of my childhood. I remember wearing a fancy beaded flower crown […]

Time To Crochet

Crochet tops in light colors are always so dreamy and vintage-looking. Amazing what colors can do, right? I’ve worn this exact same design, only in black, in my previous post entitled “Black Widow”. Most of you remarked how goth it looked. Obviously, this white version is so far from goth. Instead of pairing my dreamy […]

Take Me Where The Music Is

Do I look indie/hipster enough for my first ever music festival experience? Or are the pastels a little too much? Haha! I wore this to Exception Music Festival a few weeks back. I figured maybe the indie/hipster gods would forgive my use of pastels since I’m in boots and plaid anyway. LOL! Because music festivals […]

A Day In Bangkok

My view from the sky! Before heading back to Manila from Phuket, my friends and I decided to stay in Bangkok for a day and a half. Coming from the beach, all relaxed and rejuvenated, we were definitely ready to take on the metropolitan lifestyle once again. And here we are! Touchdown, Bangkok! It’s been […]

Blinding

Want to know why my photos are so freaking awesome?!!! It’s because Tricia took them! I’m so happy a professional photographer with lighting equipment was around to take them. I always love shooting with Tricia. Her photos are always so clean and pretty. These were taken right after our shoot for Miss Selfridge which took […]

Tribal Peplum

Thought bubble: Inhale. Huwag hihinga. (Or in English, don’t breathe.) Ladies, who can relate? Haha! Darn these bustiers/corsets! But who can resist them? They can make any outfit hip and sexy, especially when paired with peplum skirts. For this look, I got my studded corset from Topshop and paired it with this tribal print peplum […]

Leopard and Lace

I was fortunate enough to be invited as one of the speakers for University of the Philippines’ Alternative Classroom Learning Experience (ACLE) entitled Fashion EDGEucation (thanks to the wonderful Tin Iglesias!). As much as possible, I always say yes to these kinds of things. I’m aware I haven’t achieved much and I’m still very much […]
