Sparkle Up Basics

There are countless ways to pull of the basic white tee and the classic black and white combination and I personally don't think they can get mainstream. Let's just say we all have different events and errands to be done or look forward to every single day, so I always assume there's an interesting story behind a person wearing any of these classics and basics every time I see one. In my case on today's post, I wore this ensemble when I had a lunch date with my sister. My sister and I have a totally different schedule during weekdays and we barely hang out together alone because we find ourselves at home whenever we get to have a break and that's probably the only time we get to stay longer at home one reason why I'm in the most basic ensemble you could ever see. I wanted to be comfortable enough but really, I was also kind of in a hustle bustle that day. Lol! Anyhoo, if you want to take a stand out spin on these, I'd suggest you add embellishments, gold layering hence my accessories or sequins like this clutch! Now does it look sophisticated already?

I'm sure you've noticed my DIY watch from Swap. I've featured it couple times on instagram and I'm glad enough they've extended this awesome opportunity! You can get yours in two ways now, through Swap's website and Tomato. All you have to do is create an account first, add the Swap DIY on your tote (the very first watch with the DIY photo on it), pick the color of your Swap watch strap, finish your shipping and payment details, confirm your order, get notified via email once they receive your order and send them the photo you want on your watch via email and you're pretty much good to go!

What do you think about my look?

La Vie Parisienne

Greeting you all smiles at this late hour! Although its still sunny and bright at the other parts of the world, sure there's no time limit for sharing a smile isn't it? I could already strongly feel fall season across the globe but closer through social media which explains why I'm wearing some of my favorite fall pieces, which by the way are two of my first purchases from H&M last year and unbelievably so fast almost a year after, our very first H&M flagship opened! Aaahmazing how time flies! Not to mention, I'm really really looking forward to go to Manila. It's been quite a loooong time since I've been there and I'm super certain there's soooo many new things to try and check out! (I'm sure all the "oooo's" explained enough lol). Moving on, when I heard about the new La Vie Parisienne I finally had the guts to give it a try much credits to my good friend who've been hanging out here couple times since it opened. Now I know you guys are pretty much familiar with this place already since its been one of the popular places to visit here in my hometown but I'd be honest enough to admit its my first time to be here. I know!! What took me so long, right? But other than that, I thought it was also the perfect timing, less people + perfect weather for my fall season outfit! So let me leave you here enjoying the stunning new La Vie and even more at night when all these huge curve balls are lit up. 

Are you having some "ooooh's" and "aaah's" moment right there? Well to those who've seen this for the first time like myself, I might add. lol! Scroll down for more of that!

What are your thoughts about it?

Loverly

On most parts of world, it's back to cold breeze, dark gloomy skies and basically throw on your jacket or coat before getting out of the house kind of weather already. But let's face it, we still need to get up and do our responsibilities even how we'd still want to curl ourselves under our most comfy sheets more else, attend special occasions. Speaking of, fall and winter season also calls for celebrations like weddings and no, I'm not getting married. lol! I may be too young to get married at this age but sure attending and being able to witness it couple times since I was young sure made me knowledgeable enough about it and I'm sure you do too. I can't think of my dream wedding yet because I'm definitely not ready nor thinking about that right now but I do know someday I'll look forward to that and I'll get there. Have you ever thought of how you'd work on your own wedding, choose your dream wedding gown, how your wedding reception would look like, think about your bridesmaid's gowns and everything else you can think of planning your wedding? Well if you know someone who's on the process of planning his or her wedding and is having quite a hard time where to start then you're on the right page! 

Now I do know wedding planners are pretty much everywhere nowadays but I personally think especially on the part where you pick your wedding gown, it's best to be able to really wear something that's perfect for you; the fit, quality, design, you name it and not something that you just picked because you were asked to choose on what's available. Come on, it's one of the once in a lifetime moment of our lives! And isn't it tiring and too time consuming to look for designs and inspirations via web or hop on a couple of designer houses around your area? I know, I know. I could just imagine that. But did you know there's a website called Loverly where you can do all the planning (and I literally mean everything here!) and even get to pick your wedding gown whether you like it made and designed by a worldwide known designer or not? Yes you heard me right!! If I were able to get married, I'll surely give Loverly a try! That way I wouldn't stress over planning my own wedding!

Below are just some of my picks from some world renowned designers and a few that I personally think perfect for the occasion at a little less cost whether you're the bride, one of the bridesmaids, maid of honor or simply a guest.
