I went to China last month with my family for some bonding time. When we're in Manila, we're seldom complete because everyone's busy with work, that's why we try to travel at least once or twice a year just so we can all take a break from work and get together. I knew it was going to be cold in China so I brought sweaters and jackets with me. The weather was perfect- not too cold but cool enough so we can layer clothes. Since we never really get this kind of weather in Manila, I brought my Cake sweater that I've been wanting to wear for the longest time. The print is extraordinarily beautiful and unique. It's one of my favorite sweaters already! The fabric's really comfortable too, so you'll be warm and relaxed the entire time. Now, a lot of people ask me if sneaker wedges are really worth buying.. and I say yes. I wore my Berca Shoe Store sneaker wedges in China and literally wore it the whole day without my feet hurting even one bit. For a petite person like me, sneaker wedges are really my saviour. It adds more height and doesn't make your feet feel painful. I love this pair because of it's style and color mix. The metallic silver made it extra edgy too. Also, a part of all Berca Shoe Store sales until the end of 2013 will be donated to the victims of Yolanda. Proceeds will be given to the Philippine Red Cross. It's like hitting two birds with one stone- make yourself happy and you get to help out pa!
Speaking of sneakers- let's talk about what's a nice gift for guys this Christmas. If your loved one is a basketball fanatic (and if you are too), I suggest you buy Lebron 11 Miami Nights. You can see hot examples of other Lebron 11 sneakers here. I used to be a basketball varsity back in high school and Lebron was one of my idols back then! He's such a good player, right? Anyway, I think this pair of basketball shoes is awesome and the style is rocking! This unique style code uses black carbon fiber Hyperposite panels to increase the visual effect of the design, together with silver contrast to create a futuristic appearance. What an amazing pair.
Girls usually pair their full skirts with something tight so it would be more lady-like (I always do it myself), but this time around I chose to wear it with something really loose so it can be different. I found this unique sweater online and just had to get it for myself. It's perfect for this season and the style can really make people turn their heads towards you! I also didn't realize that the colors I wore are actually Christmas colors- yes, I'm unconsciously thinking about the holiday already hahaha! My skirt matched perfectly with my new Kristine bag that I got from Avon's signature collection. The red and plum mix is so great, I'm probably going to do more mixing and matching using these tones. What I like about this bag is that it has a magnetic flap on the outside and has a zipper closure on the inside so your things will be really safe! I also love the croc-embossed hobo and the gold hardware- I think it makes it look extra luxurious, don't you think? The size is perfect for working girls, or girls who just happens to bring a lot of things and gadgets everyday! For the finishing touch, I wore a necklace that's not too loud but definitely made the entire look brighter and better. Lastly, I wore this pair sunnies from Kings of Past since I wasn't wearing much make up on (another way to use your sunnies aside from protecting your eyes from the harsh sun hehe). I've worn a lot of sunnies already but this one really fit me well and the design is also classy! This will probably be overused. BMS.
Aside from red and green, there's something about gold and black too that reminds me of the Christmas season. Wow, as early as November I'm actually talking about Christmas already! It's my favorite holiday and I can't wait to talk wear shimmer and Christmas-colored pieces! The weather's been cooler recently and I'm glad I can start wearing sweaters more. I love this one from Guess because it's so comfortable and nice to look at- you also won't feel hot because of the obvious design. Hahaha. It's really a nice ensemble if you have casual meetings all day. You know, I've been wearing hats a lot recently- I can't seem to leave the house without trying on a hat that'll match my outfit for that day. I have a lot of fedoras and caps, but this beret stood out the most. Yey for finding really old items that you thought you'll never wear again but turns out it's actually in style again. Let's face it- trends come and go, but they always come back again. Sabi nga ni Justin Timerlake ,"What goes around, goes around, goes around comes all the way back around." BMS.
