Sunnies Studios shades

Pink Salmon swimwear

There's no place like the beach. My mood automatically becomes relaxed whenever I see the sand, sun and shore. It's really amusing how I always end up wanting my getaways to be at the beach, even on rainy seasons! Haha. Luckily, it only drizzled for awhile during my trip so I still enjoyed my stay. I was shopping online a few days before my trip when I stumbled upon Pink Salmon, a swimwear/activewear clothing shop. I was so happy to see a lot of one-of-a-kind and trendy pieces from their shop- usually when I look for swimsuits, it's always the same two-piece bikinis websites sell. Pink Salmon invests a lot of time thinking of unique designs so you'll be sure no one can have the same outfit as yours. When I ordered from them, they even asked my vital stats to make sure the fit will be perfect! Not only is it made for the beach, but this swimsuit can be worn as a top too! I'll probably be doing that soon. BMS.

Nobody ever said you can only look feminine when wearing the colour pink. If you’re more edgy than girly, try wearing skirts and shorts with blazers or suits- it’ll definitely make your look a bit more masculine. I’ve never tried the pink and cream color combination before- I never realized it actually looks so cool on the eyes! To make my look even more sophisticated, I wore a Michael Kors structured bag that’s just so chic. I’ve been looking for this type of bag for the longest time, and I know it’s a bit expensive (I just ordered two bags online that’s why I’m trying to cut down on shopping) but I couldn’t resist getting it when I saw that this bag was almost 40% off! It’s not from the retail store because I don’t think they’ll ever put this bag on sale, but I got it from a better store called The Penderie.

If you’re wondering what The Penderie is- it’s a boutique selling 100% original/ luxury items. They sell brand new and slightly used items at a discounted price. Just look at the smile on my face when I got to their store. I knew I was in for a treat!

Their window displays that would make your heart melt! For bag lovers like me, you know how hard it is to order bags online because you can’t fit it and you don’t know how you’ll feel about the bag (if it’s worth it) unless you try it on yourself. Since we don’t have all the nice brands here in our country, we always rely on buying items when we travel, and traveling can be expensive too. If you can’t wait for that next trip to buy your bag, this is your next best destination!

The first bag that caught my eyes: Balenciaga. The first bag I bought with my own money is a Balenciaga bag and I wore it everyday for a month.

It’s very hard to find a Celine bag because they don’t sell online and all their designs always sell fast! The Penderie has two Celine bags that’s available in their store!

I have to admit, my favourite designer is Alexander Wang. I just love all his items. Look at this beautiful Rocco bag in blue. I got my first AW rocco bag in college because I saw a photo of Mary Kate Olsen wearing one haha! I still wear it until now- it’s super worth buying.

Louis Vuitton monogram W bag in gelato. Aside from these brands, they also sell Chanel, Prada, Gucci, MCM, Bottega Veneta, Goyard and Hermes to name a few. They carry over 30 high-end brands!

From P45,000 to P28,000. Seriously, how can you not be lured into buying the bag! Their products can be purchased using flexible payments plans for both cash and credit card, payable for a period of 6-12 months with no interest rate!

All their bags have an authentication card and a dust bag included so you know it’s 100% authentic. A lot of the bags have boxes as well! They also don’t do online transactions because they believe if you’re buying something this expensive, you have to see the actual product first, try it on and if you fall in love with it- purchase it!

Aside from these luxury bags- they also sell designer sunnies, wallets and limited edition rubber shoes (for men) for all those sneaker heads out there.

Look at the smile on my face!!! I love The Penderie! I enjoyed trying out all the bags and finding the one that suited my style the most. I visited their branch in San Juan. It’s located at Madison Square 2 (2nd floor), N. Domingo st, San Juan Manila. Telephone hotline is 02-4151550. They also have another branch that just opened in Quezon City: 2nd floor Titatium Building, 36 Holy Spirit Drive, Commonwealth QC. I’m sure they have more choices there so if ever you have any inquiries about a specific bag you like and think that they might have, call 09175811933. Happy shopping! BMS.

White, black and gold. Who can go wrong with this color combination? I know wearing an all white ensemble can by very hard, especially when traveling, but I risked it anyway! It was shopping/ fun day for us so I decided to wear this paired with gold accessories that are so beautiful. I know I'm really blessed given a job that I love so much, and I always believe that everyone can reach their goals as long as your aim for it- that is why I got this personalized locket from Charmed Life. Everything inside this little locket is important to me: love, traveling, music, etc. It's for me to always remind myself to keep and be inspired. I also wore this Hermes bracelet so my look can be more luxe. I know it's a very expensive bracelet, and it's always been my dream to own one. My dream came true when I found it at Elitista Manila. They sell brand new and used items that are definitely more affordable than the original price. They're very credible and even sent me the original receipt. Score for me! BMS.

The morning of day 2 in South Korea was spent at Namhansanseong Fortress. We spent the entire morning going around this beautiful area, that is why I made sure I wore relaxing clothes and shoes with me. The weather in Korea is unpredictable. I know it's summer/rainy season there but it still seems so cold there- or maybe I'm just used to the tropical weather here in Manila. Anyway, I decided to be in shades of brown so I can blend in with the historical architecture of namhansanseong. I'm also happy I got this matching bag and shoes from Allure Collection. Even though the strap is made out of chain, they used fabric for the shoulder area so my shoulder won't get hurt. Also, the shoes were unbelievably comfy too! When I travel, I make sure I wear a watch so it won't be a hassle getting my phone often to check the time. Plus, it's the best accessory you can wear. This Daniel Wellington watch is so sleek and chic, you can wear it in almost all occasions.

Also, I'm also giving you guys a discount coupon if you want to buy a Daniel Wellington watch! Just type "breakmystyle" upon checkout on their website! It's valid until July 31. Enjoy guys! BMS.

As I'm writing this blog post at home, I can't help but miss Korea so much. I know I've been here before but there's so much to see in this beautiful country! I went to Hanhwa Aquarium Planet in Jeju and noticed this quaint spot outside. I hurried to see it up close and decided to take my outfit shot here. All the clothes I brought with me were very comfortable since I knew we were going from one province to another (aside from our full day schedule everyday). I finally found a pair of mint pants! Thank heavens I saw them online before leaving for Korea. It matched perfectly with this plain white top too (well, everything can match a white top anyway). Since I didn't have any prints on my apparel, I decided to wear these beautiful necklaces from Nadj Handmade Jewelry. They're so light  so you won't have to worry about anything!  It definitely made my entire look more lively. Just by looking at this ensemble, you can already tell it's so comfortable to wear. BMS.
