hey, i heard you are the wild one

While swarming through racks filled with the season's trends, I can't help but feel overwhelmed with so many pretty and interesting details to try on. But after meticulously scanning and getting acquainted with each clever innovation, I find myself ending up buying a lesser trendy piece or a much staple item. My fashion principle-- when you can, don't get preoccupied with the trend while it's hot. Either, you start the trend or revert to it once the commotion has died down, resurrecting it with sauve. 

So, i ended up with a classic lbd. The moment I got hold of this lbd, I instantly mentally assigned it to my 'must-have' basket.3 reasons: keyholes, peplum, and lbd.

Keyhole necklines are a fresh cut to get steering away from your regular low v-necks. Notwithstanding, keyholes, equally (if not better), spells sophisticated-sexy.  

Peplums. Peplums are a great waist-cincher. Reminded me of Charlotte of Sex in the City, and Blaire of Gossip Girl.

Backless keyhole. Need I say more?

a new leaf


Here's to my first blog! Finally, after semi-blogging for nearly a year in! For my first post, I decided to have fun with pastel!

Forever 21- mint sheer top, blue lace shorts

Best thing about pastels, because they're unabashingly sweet and compromising by nature, you can combine color palettes easily. For this look, I went for a sheer mint top and soft blue lace shorts. I love the floral embroidery of the top. Reminded me of lazy daisies back in grade school. Ffor my hair, pulled a sock-bun (thanks to my sissy Charm for showing me how :) ), slid in a pair of round sunnies and whala, pastels in the 50's!

Dorothy Perkins- gold belt from dorothy perkins
Folded & Hung- black round sunnies

To transform this tamed ensemble to take off with flaire, I opted to accessorize with gold metals and non-conformist hardware. Finished off with nude pumps. Key when playing with colors, choose 1 color to cement your whole look together.
