Coming back from a long trip never fails to make me feel a tad bit homesick. I miss my bed since I always put emphasis on sleeping paraphernalia, pillows and bed covers.
I miss having my whole array of things around me- just within an arms reach.
And I love being in the midst of my stuff, my organized chaos, and knowing exactly where things are.
I like the thought of knowing that I can look back and see my well lit, glass cabinet made especially for my shoes and seeing that every inch of what I see around me has come from 12 hours a day of hard work.
With something new and big just around the corner, I decided that my little special place in the world deserves a little sprucing up and so... here are the things on my Home Shopping List:
Been trying to move the boyfriend toward the right direction, in a fashion sense anyway. And I tell you, it's not so easy to convince a man to (literally) change his old and faded ways.
In order to nudge him a little further and in a more affordable option, (so its okay to make mistakes) Zara seemed like the perfect choice to inspire him with its wide array of styles, its availability (it still has a little snob factor here in Manila) and of course, the great price.
Its a great starting point for any budding fashionsita!
I prefer the first, second and third look. The forth one is just too much for the guys guy in my opinion.
The first look is chic and very much European while the second and third look could go well in our weather- I am not too sure if Manila is quite ready for the suit and sandals look.
Absolutely lurve these looks! The outfits shout "Yes, I think of what I'm wearing because I do care!"
There is nothing hotter than a man who cares... and the confidence to carry it off.
Thank you, Zara for showing the cool, mature and confident man how it's done.
He might as well be the man that started it all. 80-year-old New York Times photographer has been on the streets of New York since the '70s, taking photos of people and what we now call street style. Read up on his life and vision as written in the New Yorker. I hope to be inspired and appreciate fashion more through his eyes and works. A documentary entitled, Bill Cunningham New York was released this year.
Throughout the years he has classified two groups of New Yorkers—the fashionable people, whose style changes more rapidly than that of the masses, and the truly creative ones, whose style, while outré, in its theatricality never really changes at all—“On the Street”
I have been eyeing on this type of skirts since I first saw them last year. It seems to be Abbie Lee's favorite street style or off the runway look. Chanel is definitely on board when we saw it in one of their Fall collections and catalogue. Topshop and Forever21 has these skirts on very reasonable prices but of course still stylish and chic.
I know summer is not over yet but the unbearable heat for the past weeks makes you miss the cold and windy days. May it be chilly or not, I believe the main concern on puling off this look is to not get arrested, appear tasteful and well put together or at least not offend people with more conservative likings.
Side-swept braided hair must be one of the effortless hairstyles to do and wear. Runways and celebrities seem to sport a certain kind though - the fishtail. Your hair has def' gotta be long and thick for this look.
Just when I thought they could not think of anything new aside from crackle polish, tie-dye polish, glow-in-the-dark polish, now they have mood changing polish which reminds me so much of my younger days when mood rings were the "IT" thing in school.
I'm not sure how accurately laquer or paint can in a way, sense, my mood considering it has to go through and feel my nails first. Nevertheless, its a fun thought and its worth a try.
In the Mood is a brand of nail polish sold in the States that has this feature.
They say that it works as it tries to sense the change in your body termperature.
If you feel cold, the Hype color will change from a highly pigmented pink to a lighter shade.
I'm not sure how the logic goes- whether the color will turn bright pink if you're feeling hot or vice versa.
It's worth a try since it's fun to check if it would also change colors based on your actual emotions and not just based purely on your body termperature.
If you are indoors with airconditioner, then you will obviously feel cooler. But if you're angry, wonder if the color will change to bright red?
In the Mood nail polish will be out in the United States in June.
Other brands that carry this mood changing polish effect is Claire's!
What color combination would you choose?
I'd prefer to have midnight purple when I'm feeling sick, bubble gum pink when I'm excited and canary yellow when I'm feeling content.
Jeremy Scott is an American designer known for his avant guarde designs. He Brings to life pop culture into fashion with his ever so groovy and creative designs.
With his collaboration with Swatch, now all of us can have a touch of his iconoclast worthy works of art. Its great- we can now be popstars in our own right.
Here are some of his designs that are both tempting... and reasonable as it has a dual purpose- it tells time and its designer piece. Could be collectible someday too!
This is my favorite as its the most wearable due to its color. Then again, Jeremy Scott's pieces are meant to be attention grabbing!
If I were anymore of a brat, which I am suspecting I may be, I'd get this piece tooo, I'd always havea thing for wings and thunderbolts anyway.
The designs are classic Jeremy Scott since he is also well known for his winged Addidas sneaks in a collaboration he had with them. For anyone in the know with the fashion scene, it would definitely be his trademark design.
Glad to note that this special edition Jeremy Scott designs for Swatch are now in town.
