Complement your whites with the right accessories to break the monochrome.

Dreaming of White

Getting tired of all the blacks, blues and greys in the uptigh life of the office so while the summer heat is upon us, I've been veering towards white.

Its been a  hard color especially if the material is thin making it see through so the underwear we use is a major factor. It also makes it difficult to maintain since white is... well, white! And all other stains, discolorations, dirt and wrinkles are easily spotted. 

Sometimes I tend to get lost in the color because I'm pretty fair but I feel that it makes me look clean, fresh and crispy!

If I were to have it my way, I'd go for all white but I'm afraid it would make me look "trying hard" to look virginal. Haha. I love white pants and yes, I'm all for the labor day weekend!

Here are some looks from ELLE validating that aside from bright colors, white is here... and its okay.

Don't you think wearing white in a Black and White picture makes it look so damn dramatic?

What color do you feel like WEARING nowadays?
I'm also trying to look into the possibility of peach! Ugh, yes, its starting to be an obsession!

'Qutie Cute' Collection from MAC

Just wanted to applaud the artistic point of view of the MAC chief stylists and their courage to come out with something new -and daring every season.

Just in, thier new Qutie Cute collection is for all those people who are defnitely looking to be axactly just that- qutie cute and everything bubble gum pop.

The colors may seem too "sweetums" for me but when mixed with other colors, it could really make a difference. Muted and bold are mixed into this collection and if you know how to pick your colors right, they could really work for you (or make yourself look a little funny) Funny Face much?

The designs remind me of my teeny bopper days and its hard for me to be able to segue into my 20's with such a look, although I am loving the peach lip look since I'm currently sporting peach nails anyway.

One thing of note however, would be this lilac lipstick that many say, is definitely Coachella ready. It takes certain skin color and personality to carry it well.

Would you be able to carry such a color on your lips?
I hope I don't look like i'm lacking oxygen when I wear it.

A Book Like Hers- Kate Moss by Mario Testino

If I could just have a coffe book of myself with these kind of pictures I could die happy.
No need to have anything else to show the grandkids.
Who cares about heirloom pieces and pass me down watches when you have something like this!

With the match up of Kate Moss and no less than Mario Testino, it's definitely a dream come true.

Reliable Flats

We have these flats to rely on..

      - days that we decide to rest our heels
      - when the dress calls for nothing but nude sandals
      - travelling in style 
      - moments when studs, lace, and other embellishments work nicer on flats; or
      - subdued glamour and stylish comfort

Khloe K's Kloset

Just in case you were wondering what else youcould do at home during the holidays if you arent going to be be out and about out of town, here's Khloe Kardashian's Closet to inspire all of us to color code and at the same time, edit... and maybe give away the things we no longer need.

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe says she's a neat freak and color codes her closet- maybe we could do the same (just to make dressing up all the more easier)

Here is her shoe cabinet that's to die for.

Summer's Tie Dye For

As Coachella comes a calling to many, the hippie chic vibe is back along with it are beads, knits and of course, the tie-dye. I think it puts the hip in hippie.

And Christian Laboutin think so too...

Little White Dress

The Inspiration
Stella McCartney, Resort 2011

It's mandatory to get a 'lil white dress for the summer. It is the ultimate statement that takes very little effort to pull of. Most of the time you just want to wear it with your reliable nude sandals (or heels!) and those special occasions when a the right pop of color from your clutch or scarf is needed.

It's clean and chic. Most importantly, it's a classic.

The Must-Buy

Summer Nails!

We all know that well-groomed nails and the right color makes an outfit or simply makes our day too. We made sure we had the perfect summer shades this season!

Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!


Proenza Schouler: PS1 Wallet

After all my day dreaming for the PS1 in Smoke, they came up with the PS1 wallet (just in case you didnt have enough money for the real thing.)

From Bright Clothes to Bright Lips

You know the season calls us to go all out on the brights. But you simply can't wear color?
Wondering how to make your dark corporate outfit alive and more interesting?

Buy lipstick, any girl's secret weapon.


1) MAC Pink Friday Lipstick

2) Maybelline Midnight Plum

3) YSL in Rouge Volupte

What's your favorite bright lip?

Closet Essentials

Ladies, trust me on this one. You definitely have to have these. And yes, you should invest on these key pieces too. Not only do you need them to complete an outfit but they will also be your go-to clothes on days that inspiration does not strike so hard. Just like a LBD, every piece on the list is also timeless.

1. White shirt or tank

Mine are mostly from Topshop since I prefer the not-so-stretchy material and the length of course!

2. White crisp button down shirt

Into the Wild

This month's inspiration is for the men and of course the ladies too. Soleen Heusaff graces the cover of one the country's top Men's magazine. Her knockout bod and cover look is definitely a head turner. With a Boracay trip coming up this weekend, I can't wait to bring out those animal prints, golds, wood, and ceramic elements in my outfits. 

What's your beach outfit?

Local VS. International- Take Your Pick


April Preview 2011


Gucci Spring 2011
The Spring Hair and Make-up Look from Gucci Spring 2011 Collection

I personally still prefer Preview's take on the look given that Gucci went a little too over board with the metallic belt, then again, it is Gucci after all.
Wonder who had the idea first?
Liking the shade of Purple from Gucci but feeling more comfortable with Preview's color combination.

Gucci is the more glamorized version of the Preview look, although, I'd wear Toni's ensemble more- in another shade of lipstick.

Who did you prefer?


My Birthday Suit
