Thrift Finds : 1


Hi guys! As promised, here’s a post about the thrifted clothes that I just bought sometime this week at Libertad. If you happen to visit Manila, there’s a lot of UKAY-UKAY shops where second-handed clothes and shoes are sold at a low price. Yes, you may think that it is impossible to find something good at used items but if you really look very hard, you might be surprise of what you can find! ๐Ÿ™‚

here’s what I got:

I got these two leggings for 100 pesos each so that is like $2.35 USD only! Both are from Giordano, second-hand, but still in a very good condition! ๐Ÿ™‚

I got this top for 150 pesos only. I alreadyย  have a partner for this but I’m still saving the outfit for a special occasion so wait for that post! ๐Ÿ™‚

This sweater is my favorite! I got this for 65 pesos only! It looks like I bought it from F21 because of the design. I love it! โค

And the last one is this! My super duper love from all that I’ve got! When I first caught my eye on this, i knew right then and there that I had to buy it! Again it looks like an F21 clothing but for a cheaper price! Got this for 65 pesos only and it looks new! ๐Ÿ™‚

All in all, i spent 480 pesos for 5 clothes.

Here’s a picture of me wearing the brown leggings and the beige sweater: I know, I’m excited and I can’t wait any longer so there! (hahaha) Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, I was rushing that time because I have class ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be posting tips on how to thrift shop on my next post.ย  I was supposed to include it here but I am really running out of time so I’ll just post it on my next post. I’M SORRY! So that’s it for now, I hope you like it! Feel free to give your comments guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

Who says Smart Casual attire is boring?


Hello beautiful people! Yesterday was another Philippine Foreign Policy class for me. As what I’ve mentioned on my previous post, we have a schedule of M-W for Corporate/Smart Casual attires.

Smart casual attires is a loosely defined dress code; it is casual in a sense that it still looks smart and presentable enough for people. Others would say that wearing smart casual attires are really boring because you can’t really wear it fashionably but i beg to disagree for I’ve been wearing this kind of outfit for 3 years now and needless to say I am still able to pull of the style that I want even if I am wearing a blazer or slacks. ๐Ÿ™‚

My trick here is the choice of colors. I choose colors which are Classic neutral and dark colors so that even if my Blazer is not really very formal in look, it can blend well with the colors and still look smart casual. For accessories, choose something that will match the over-all outfit but won’t look over the top. For shoes, wedges, pumps and sandals are of great choice if the colors are of classic neutrals or of dark shade.

Here are some pictures of my outfit last night:

INNER TOP/ Forever21

BLAZER/ Sunshine, Singapore Brand

PANTS/ Grand Central Mall

BAG/ Donkie Mania, Korean Brand, SHOES/ Thrifted

NOTE: I’ll be posting my Thrift Finds here so wait for that! You’ll be amazed on how beautiful yet affordableย  those pieces that I got =)

WATCH/ Alba, BRACELETS/ Accesorize

And of course a picture of me wearing my very trusted flats ๐Ÿ™‚ These are a must have if you’re wearing heels so that in case of emergency, you can easily change.

Alright guys, I got to go I’m actually really sleepy right now, haven’t slept since i got home from school. Feel free to comment anytime guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

To school I go


Hi guys! Here’s a quick outfit post of what i wore yesterday at school. We Benildeans don’t really have uniforms so we can wear anything except for short shorts, flip-flops, torn pants, or revealing clothing. But for CDA or AB-Consular and Diplomatic Affairs student like me, we have Monday to Wednesday schedule for corporate attires or smart casual because we have professors that are Ambassadors which obviously requires a formal look. While Thursday to Saturday is our dress down days.

Here are some shots of my outfit last night ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, my classes always starts from 6-9pm because most of our Professors/Ambassadors are not really a morning kind of person. (Hehehe) ๐Ÿ™‚

TOP/ Sweetdreams

SKIRT/ Forever21

BRACELETS/ DIY-ed, WATCH/Alba, RING/ Singapore Brand

BAG/ Singapore Brand, SHOES/ Charlotte Russe

As for my outfit, i chose something that will match with my DIY-ed Stackable ArmCandy Bracelets since I noted in my last post that I’ll be posting an outfit wearing my Stackable ArmCandy Bracelets, so there you go! ๐Ÿ™‚ What do you think of my outfit? Feel free to give your comments!

And if any of you guys have an account at lookbook.nu and chictopia.com, mind if you hype and follow me as well? THANK YOU!


Happy three years of love <3


Yesterday, me and Tosh celebrated our 3rd Anniversary as a couple. As mainstream as it is, we had our dinner date at Yakimix buffet restaurant at Greenbelt 3, Makati because I was craving for some Japanese food ๐Ÿ™‚ not his first choice though, but at least I was able to satisfy my cravings, you know like a bossย  (Hehe)

So here are some shots of my outfit last night:

TOP/ Forever21


WEDGE/ Victory Mall, BAG/ Charles and Keith

Since we’ll be grilling a lot, I chose something simple yet classyย  and something which would help me breathe but still look sexy while pigging out ;p so I wore this semi-loose top and paired it with a tight-fitting skirt. I opted to wear just a simple watch and gold dangling earrings to keep up with the simple look that I want. Since the color of my top and bottom were neutral, I decided to pair it with a brown bag and brown wedges to stick with the earthy-ish tone of my outfit. What do you think? ๐Ÿ™‚

And here is a picture of me and Tosh at Yakimix, pigging out hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ FATTER YET HAPPIER THAN EVER!
