My Sanuk Story + What's New with the Brand!

Hello world!

Nakakatawa, yesterday on a long traffickey van ride with my blog friends Paul and Sarah, our conversation was biglang napadpad to our first ever blog posts. Nagkatanungan na how we started with blogging before pa, pero yesterday mas specific ang usapan--like weirdest outfit choices, pinaka-malabong outfit shot venues/backgrounds (tipong may door knob pa sa gilid, o asa loob lang ng CR! O yung infamous mirror shots! Haha!). Anjan din ang filtered photos (sepia!), habang overly- unfiltered naman ang kwentos! ;p Hahaha! Ang saya din to look back! ;p

Anyhooo... So here's my veryvery first outfit shot, took this inside my room using my old Fuji digital camera, na naka-set ang timer. Hahaha! What editing?! What Photoshop? Wala pakong consepto nyan before! And kamusta naman sa cabinet stickers and gitara sa background diba? ;p Nagpapaka-hippie!

Raw-Fashion-Blogging at its finest! The first post for The Fashionista Commuter - My Own Runway - where I wore my Gold Shine-It San…

Before the mechanics, a little story about Impulse Co. I've known this brand for years na.

What really happens at prom...

What a difference a decade makes! Ten years ago, school-leavers in the UK would do just that - leave school. Despite it being accepted that American kids of the same age would partake in a nerve-wracking ritual known as "the Prom" with all sorts of archaic attributes such as the boy bringing the girl a corsage to wear and the girl's parents greeting said boy rather stiffly at the door as they handed over their Cinderella to be driven off in his "chariot", British kids didn't have any of this. They avoided the nerves and tension in the build-up as to who would go with who – and all of the other Prom rituals seen on movies and television. UK pupils weren't even familiar with "High School" so never formed a committee to create a yearbook from the experience. But all of this has now changed. The "Prom" is now as much a feature of the UK summer calendar as it has ever been in the US.
An industry of its own In fact, rather like th…

Kung class and sass lang, I always look up to lady icons from yester-years like Audrey and Marilyn. Love them.
I finally wore the XXL Old Navy yellow dress I got from The Off Price Showa few weeks ago.If you've seen the photo of this dress in my The Off Price Showpost, spag straps sha, but sa super luwag, I tied the straps sa likod and made it look haltered! :) Parang dress na ni Monroe, but in sunshine-y yellow (my favorite color!)! I wore a cardigan with the dress sa events--like for the rustic, vintage, formal themed Da Vinci's Workshoplaunch in MOA.

Also on same day, I attended the Azta Urban Salon's Bloggers Party in Eastwood! The theme naman for that is HIPSTER, pero nalito na ako how to combine that with rustic, formal, vintage-- so I just brought with me …

LEE F/W 2013 + Giveaway Winners!

Lee® Stretch Deluxe – The Ultimate Experience in Comfort & Movement 
Slowly but surely, Lee has developed a new denim experience for the woman with intelligent taste. Creating jeans from superior Italian fabric that stretches and recovers, this technology gives denim the elasticity to not only mold into your shape but hold it also. Side seams are moved forward, pushing in to make legs look slimmer and longer. Reconstructing the heritage blueprint, a new curved waistband stops jeans from gaping at the back. 

The offering of fits this season include: 1)  the ultra skinny Scarlett, a sexy tight pair that hugs the shape of your body from waist through the thigh, all the way down to the ankle.  2) The high waist Skyleris cut skinny to hug the shape of your body from waist through thigh and all the way down to the ankle to set off those feminine curves.  3) The Jeggings has a low waist that skims the hips. It is cut skinny and hugs the shape of your body from the waist through thigh and a…
