New York Fashion Week is a week-long event that includes a lot of glitz and glam, incredible makeup (whether it be Cardi B’s on fleek look to Irene Kim’s “no makeup” makeup), va-va-voom hairstyles (whether it be a “I woke up like this” lewk to again, Cardi B’s unique ‘dos), and of course impeccable style. Sometimes, people change in between shows so they can wear and represent the next show they’ll be watching– I did that on some days. So I figured instead of making a blog post for each look (ang daming posts nun hahaha), I’ll just create a lookbook instead.
This was probably my favorite look during NYFW because:
1. I felt so warm and snug
2. The all denim look is my go-to every time I want to look casual but still look stylish
3. This red coat grabbed everyone’s attention. Thanks Lavish Alice!
I know everyone says fashion week is all about looking good but deep down you can’t move because you’re so uncomfortable– I beg to differ. This look is incredibly cozy and I’d wear it everyday– maybe change my heels to sneakers lol.
Time to upload all my NYFW photos! Sharing with you guys my most comfortable look that entire week. I wore my Stranger Things “Hawkins University” hoodie, this oversized jacket that I got from Carolina Herrera’s mens section, and my Alexander Mcqueen boots. I attended CH’s show and decided to wear something from the guys collection instead of being all dolled up in a dress. If you’re like me who prefers wearing big jackets too, send some love and leave a comment! x
I started my love with Vetements ever since they came out with the DHL shirts. Since then, I started buying some of their affordable collabs like the Vetements x Reebok socks and simple tees. I’m always on the lookout for new pieces and even if some people say it’s bordering street / boy-ish, I think it fits my style really well. It’s all about mixing it with key pieces that’ll still make it look feminine. Here’s how I styled my Vetements staff shirt in NYC during my visit last year.
Another lookbook for you guys to see– and this time it’s all my New York looks from my vacation a few months back. I know this post is waaaay delayed (again) but I promise I’ll try my best to post as early as I can. It’s just so hard if my work trips are back to back, but I know that’s no excuse. Anyway, here are some of my OOTDs taken by NYC-based photographer Jessi Murphy. Enjoy!
Last Sunday, I went to the opening of the newest Landers branch (Alabang West) and felt like a little kid going inside a candy shop again. Every time I visit this Superstore, I always feel like it’s a quick trip to the US. The entire feel and all the food options are just incredible! Before I share with you guys my favorite snacks when I’m home watching my series, here’s a quick tour around this gigantic grocery.
I’m actually a bit jealous that LA’s natural light is incredibly beautiful. Everywhere you go and anywhere you shoot, the light is always just perfect. You also get to see and explore a lot of cool streets, graffiti walls, and brunch places (yes, I love brunch food lol). Anyway, here are more photos from my shoot with Adrian Martin. Hope you guys like this lookbook! x
Can you believe I got this midi dress for £10 or even less? Everyone still want to look cute on a casual day even if there’s really no occasion, right? I wore this during one hot summer day in LA and shot with the talented Adrian Martin. Just to give you a background, I met Adrian in Manila a long time ago (maybe 5-6 years back when I had just started blogging) and he’s now based in LA working as a creative director for @mensfashion. He’s unbelievably talented and honestly, nakaka-proud to see Filipinos all over the world showcasing their creativity …
Always a good place to go to for some sun and fun. Venice beach is also nearby Abbot Kinney, which is my new favorite place to hangout in LA. Random story but I always watch Jimmy Kimmel’s segments wherein they stop people around Venice Beach and interview them regarding a certain topic and I laugh so hard every time. I went here during my last visit during sunset to admire the place and the busyness that happens everyday here. Beautiful.
There’s something so charming about LA that makes me wanna live there. Okay, maybe not live there but try staying there for a few months. The chill vibe, the tall palm trees, the food (especially the food), and the shops– everything about LA is just so beautiful. I used to go there every summer with my family when I was little but when everyone started “adulting”, we just couldn’t find the time to have family trips that often. Now I miss going to LA every summer, staying there for three weeks and just spending time with my parents and siblings. Luckily, a few …
