Dots

Outift 2-3

Good Morning, Lovelies! It’s already the second month of 2015, whoa.. We may say this every year, but I do think time flies faster this 2015. I apologise for the lack of photos, I was in some sort of rush the day it was taken. Also, I had to crop of my face cause I wasn’t, and never was, photogenic; aside from the fact that i’m not used to being in front of the camera (instead of being behind) as i’ve stated in my previous update. Lately, i’ve been feeling that my camera’s not really photoshoot-standard (?).. But I can’t help it, I’ve no other DSLR than my good ol’ EOS 1100D. I’m trying to get my hands on the 70D though, i’ve heard many great stuff about it. What do you guys think? (Comment below if you have any suggestions..)

Outift 2-1

Normally, I would’ve paired this blouse with a plain skater skirt as the blouse already seemed to add the pattern-effect with it’s ruffled collar and cuffs, but I don’t have a plain white skirt sadly. Seeing as the blouse wasn’t too heavily patterned, I thought maybe some dots would make it seem a bit more striking but not enough, as I felt the need to add a touch of gold (as always).. Hence, the infinity body chain which isn’t uncomfortable. The thin chains make it lighter and seem like you’re not wearing an accessory. (Though I had to pin up the back chain as it was too long! Poor short me).. A lot have suggested that rose-gold jewellery would look really charming on me, but I feel that it’s too “mainstream” and plain gold seem to flatter me more as i’m kinda warm-toned. Again, this outfit was truly hard for me to pull off as it’s brightly coloured and it kinda drifts away from my style which is more comfortably edgy; I felt that this look made me look younger and preppy. *hides face*

Outfit 2-5

Tell me guys what you think below! 😉 I’m very sorry for the blur in the photo here and there, I had to edit it since my camera’s tilt-shift isn’t so impressive.

Also, i’m gonna be posting my January Products Review real soon, so stay tuned for that. There won’t be a lot of products as firstly, i’m not a beauty guru and i’m not that into cosmetics. I do wear light make-up sometimes when going to special events or photo-shoots so i’m gonna include what i’ve liked so far and what not. Secondly, i’m still in Zamboanga City and there’s not much you can get your hands on here. February’s favourites are gonna be better, trust me.

That’s all for today, loves. Have a good day!

Orange, yay or nay?

I’m well aware of the whole cool/warm toned thing and I never really figured out what I am. (Warm-toned skins look better in earthly colours / Cool-toned look better in bright and neons) The trick, or so they say, to finding out is to check your wrists. If more green veins are visible than blue, you’re warm-toned. If it’s the other way around, cool-toned. I have purple veins, which signifies i’m neutral-toned, but some days there’s more green than purple. They say the colour Orange looks best on cool-toned.. but I feel like orange kinda looks flattering on me too despite being warm-toned. Yeah, I haven’t figured that out too. Okay, i’ll drop that topic for now. (Completely un-related, but I’ve had a knack for orange juice these past few weeks. The powdered unhealthy kind.. #sorrynotsorry)

Outfit 3-5

Colours, colours, colours. Colourful clothes, as i’ve mentioned before, aren’t really my thing, but I successfully resisted not wearing an all-black outfit today. The top i’m wearing is (obviously) an orange sleeveless blouse thingy that you get to tie..somewhere, something.. Yeap, i’m very good at describing things, huh? I know, I know. (: I love the way it kinda hugs my body, and the colour! The colour for the hundreth time.. It’s not too orange, not too red. I don’t know! It just seems to entice me, and again, not a huge fan of bright colours. I’ve said that before, i’m sorry! I just have this habit of word-redundancy, if you may call it.

I would’ve went with shorts going to the beach, but I thought maybe the skirt would add a touch of flair. (If that even makes sense) Actually, this whole post is making no sense. I don’t know, my mind’s having some sort of mental-block.. it happens sometimes and normally, i’d wait a day or two and my verbal skills would come crashing back in, but I really wanted to update today.. I’ve been delaying for far too long. Don’t you agree? Haha..

Anyways.. i’ll just add the pictures down below, and i’ll try my best to add a caption.. I apologise in advance if it’s not that interesting, my shortage for words right now is restraining me from successfully publishing this post.

 

Outfit 3-3

I felt that the outfit would’ve look better during the summer.. hence why I added the striped & floraly (?) polo. I’ve seen some inspirations online from fashion gurus wearing kimonos as a top layer. I don’t have a kimono, currently.. nor do I know where to buy one without having to swim through the pacific ocean. Fortunately, I found a very loose and soft (god, it’s so soft, it doubles as a blanket!) blouse that kinda resembles the “kimono-look”.. See where i’m getting at? (Sigh.. blame the mental block.) Plus i’ve learned over the years not to pair a plain top with a plain bottom.. so that “kimono” kinda adds the patterned detail to complete this look.

 

Outfit 3-4

 

Fun fact, i’m not a fan of going overboard with accessories.. but with all the stripe and bright colours going on, I kinda wanted to add a gold accent and this triple-layered tri-colour necklace just sits perfectly on top of the plain blouse. I’ve been asked many times where I purchased this centipede ring/bracelet chain.. thing is, it was a gift and I really have no clue.

Casually Classy

This outfit was inspired by no other than.. mother dearest. Yes, mum.

I’ve always loved my mum’s style; loose chiffon blouses, skinny jeans and high heels (You can see where I got my fashionista genes from..) and it seemed so casual, yet elegant. Therefore, I borrowed one of her old blouses and tried to “re-new” it.

The pony-tail emphasised the elegance, but I may have failed to pull it off (my hair just hasn’t dried off completely). The wayfarer shades (other than to hide the designer bags under my eyes) added a touch of casualness (I guess..) to the outfit.

The whole point was to look simple, yet sophisticated.. So instead of going with a choker or long necklaces, I just finished off the look with a gold trapezium chain around my neck.

The look’s pretty much self-explanatory, so I’m not gonna blab any longer. Did I pull it off? I leave it to you to judge 😉

Spring

Outfit 1-3

Do you smell the lovely essence of spring in the air? No? Well, you’re probably not in the Philippines right now, cause here, it’s Spring! (The exclamation mark’s declaring my excitement for what comes after spring..)

I am not a huge fan of colours, honestly. Eighty-percent of my clothes are neutrals; black, white, grey.. basically, the monochromes. Spring calls for pastel and bright colours and as it so happens, I received various coloured (as to my dismay) clothing as gifts; hence, this outfit.

Pardon my very un-ladylike poses, as you may have already concluded, i’m not very used to being in pictures.. usually, i’m the one behind the camera.

Outfit 1-4

Pairing light-coloured items with brown accessories or/and shoes, has always been my style. Partly that bohemian side of me, and the other half not wanting to go out looking like a rainbow; ergo, my wedge boots (also a gift from one of my generous aunts)..

I paired my peach skirt with a cream-coloured blouse and normally, I would’ve worn it just like that, but I reckoned it seemed too formal so I wore this blue polo to loosen it up a bit.

Wanting to keep it casual, I didn’t go overboard with the jewellery and yes, I do have a thing for owls.
