White Wonders

I would've finished this entry earlier today but if you've read my latest tweet, I'm sure you know why. My little brother and I were on our way to celebrate our cousin's birthday party who happens to live in Mandaue. We had a smooth drive 'til we reached the shortcut by the Parkmall area until everything stopped from there! It took us close to waiting forever I swear!! I definitely felt bad for my lil' bro since he was super excited to go and the traffic just drained all that excitement and its' sad how I couldn't do anything about it. But fast forward to all that waiting hassle, we've finally made it. We started traveling by about 3pm and arrived at almost 6pm. Can you just imagine that!! Anyhooo, let's move on to that now and proceed to today's post, shall we?

Lately, the weather's been soooo bipolar that I find it hard to wear heels and I've also been driving almost every single day. So what do I have to do to solve this? Invest on mandals of course! Thank you for the perfect timing, fashion gods! Got these very chic with an awesome print mandals from Tonic just few weeks ago and this is the first look I styled it with. And yes, there's more to come. lol! 

Totally loved how I played with different silhouettes and prints here and with the perfect details to mix and match, the total ensemble wasn't a failure!

What do you think about my look?

House of Eva overalls, Monkee Business lace top, Tonic mandals, Abby Jocson bag, Romwe hat, Extreme Finds necklaces, Pretty Little Blings rings

Culottes

Here's something you might want to know; I'm not wearing a skirt!!! And I'm not mad lol! But before anything else, I promised to explain myself or let's just use the term 'update' you guys on what I've been up to when I wasn't writing for weeks. Where do I even start? I guess when I started applying for a student permit for driving, and then I enrolled myself on manual driving lessons got back weeks after to finally apply for driver's license (and I'm sure you know how long and tiring just to process that! ugh!). Luckily though, I passed all the tests and I'm currently driving now. Yay! It's actually one of my goals before I turn (*sobs*) twenty. And then of course, exams followed and intramurals. Obviously, there's still a lot of insert here and insert there moments that had happened during those weeks. But oh how time flies! I'm more than happy to be working back here! And I do appreciate everyone, especially my loyal readers who kept visiting my blog even though I wasn't updating it yet.

Soooo shall we proceed to my look? I'm sure you can't wait too! I definitely miss this! 
How ironic of me wearing a corset under a gloomy weather but really, I just didn't want to be too wrapped up that day. And if you still haven't noticed, I'm showing off some skin there and this barely happens. Haha! Went out with this look to a brunch with my gal Ara, who also took these photos and some of my previous looks too! Currently investing on flats nowadays because this barely happens in the fashion industry, definitely can't wait for heels to hit back!

Instead of pairing this corset with the usual high waist shorts and jeans, I managed to keep it modern vintage casual by pairing them with culottes. I've been keeping these for a long time already and it was the perfect time to take them out! I've always been a conservative dresser. Believe it or not, I started wearing short shorts in public when I was in 2ndyr high school! I've been a bermuda shorts, midi shorts and culottes kind of girl before that. It feels great to be back in these ensembles now.

What do you think about my look?

Topshop corset, Vintage culottes (similar here), Pinky Toes sandals, Tomato bag, Istorya necklaces, WAGW belt, Goody elastics

Layering Made With Love

Has it been a loooooooong while since I last blogged?! Don't get too rough on me yet because the feeling is mutual, but I will definitely give you an explanation post. I'm not sure if some bloggers have already done something like that but I will make one (hopefully the next post after this), so hold your horses for now and let me proceed with the let's-get-rid-of-my-outfit-posts post today! I want to deny saying this but this is only the truth; few weeks ago, I did a little jewelry shopping and looked for minimal necklaces in particular. I've noticed how huge the layering trend is and it was just the perfect time for me to blend in and give it a try. I waited 'til all my orders arrive in order for me to make this post and it's finally here!! You may wonder why I'm doing this, it's both sharing and a warning because I will be over using these pieces on my future posts. lol. If you're as excited as I am, read on and check out my picks!


One thing you may not know, I picked a sapphire gem for this particular necklace because I'm a Virgo! Wonder which zodiac sign do you belong??

First off are these personalized, handmade (proudly in the Philippines), and made with love necklaces from Istorya. I'm sure we all know that there are already a lot of shops that makes personalized jewelries and all sorts nowadays and believe me when I say I do tons of quick research that may take days before I pick a store to shop but what makes Istorya different? It caught my attention when I read the quote on their instagram bio that said "Tell a story with your jewelry", it quickly made me realize that they do not only make personalized things for money or more like an ordinary transaction, but they make the whole thing worthy by adding sentimentality. Something that you cannot find on other stores. I actually felt that when I was communicating to them via email yet I felt so much worth when I got my orders! Just look at those boxes with blue ribbons and a charm that says "made with love". Aaaaah! They followed exactly and everything that I instructed them to do but they did a little mistake on my website (look closely on the necklace with a round pendant), but they gave me a surprise (the 'z' necklace) so that's okay. lol! Nevertheless, I do recommend them if you want to give or have personalized things with sentimentality. Check out their instagram (@istorya) for more designs and details.


Now let's talk about statements! I only know one jewelry shop that never runs out of one- Extreme Finds!!! Haha! Every year or every month, they always have very unique designs with great quality and that's simply why I love this brand. Can you sense so much elegance on these accessories? I can already imagine when I layer them which you will see soon! Heard that they have a new collection out now so check out their instagram also (@extremefinds_accessories)!
