Today’s Outfitey: Chiffon Top 02

Posted on

Here’s another sheer look on my love affair with anything chiffon although this key piece is made from silk, nonetheless I’ve still categorized it under chiffon as to prove how I love sheer clothes 😉

green is in!

As much as I love green (being my favorite color) I noticed how few greens I have in my closet 😦 I just love this one much because I bought for a cheap price under 500 Php (on ebay-it’s the place for one-of-a-kind anything!) and yet it’s in its excellent condition! Pardon my love affair with my high waist shorts, I’ve been frequently wearing it (same with my skin-tight jeans) blame it on the hot Manila weather & blame it on my happiness for being almost back to my pre-pregnancy body (I still have 5 lbs. to lose you know 😦 ) Again, bandeau is the way to go! Although I would’ve worn it with a black bra, I guess being a parent can sometimes make you a bit conservative! 😉

THE OUTFITEY: 

Green long-sleeved silk top: BCBG Max Azria

Black high waist shorts: Maldita

Brown braided belt: Dorothy Perkins

Brown studded wedges: Charles & Keith

Sling bag: LV Jeunne Fille Monogram

Remember: Balance is the key, if you’re covered on the upper part, you have an excuse to show some of the lower part of your body and vice versa. But sometimes, you can get all covered up or almost all showing as well. It all depends on how you pull it off, plus styling is very crucial.

That’s all!

Today’s Outfitey: Cropped Top

Posted on

So with summer beaming its hotness to us here in the Philippines, layering would be your last option. But I think layering can be your best bet for summer. Today’s key piece: Cropped top.

I admit I’m not a fan of this piece of clothing since I feel fat whenever I wear anything loose. It’s a tendency because if you have an average bust size and a big cup size, you’re chest tends to say hello most of the time, so wearing anything like a tent dress or a loose top can make it unflattering even if you have a flat tummy.

So here’s the look

crop it!

Some people can pull off a cropped top without anything underneath it but I can’t! I feel F-A-T! not that I’m vain, but yes I really do feel that way, not that comfortable & confident enough to wear anything “hanging” heehee. Noticed how I love this faded jeans? It’s skin-tight on the hips and having a child already but still being able to wear my skin-tight jeans is just AWESOMESAUCE! 😉

THE OUTFITEY:

Navy blue croppped top: Forever 21

Faded denim: Terranova

Camel cut out wedge: Schu

Messenger sling bag: Louis Vuitton

That’s all!

Today’s Outfitey: Chiffon Top 01

So since it’s summer and the heat is scorching, wearing light textured clothes can make it a lot easier to survive (sobrang serious?!) So here’s another “casual” look that I share to you.

Take note, as I’ve said before if you’re looking for those “fashionista outfits” that totally deserves an A for effort, well I’m NOT one of them. I show my outfiteys JUST BECAUSE I want to. I am not a fashionista wannabe either, just an expression of one’s self people! :p

Moving on, here’s another breezy look!

sunny yellow

Again layer chiffon clothes with a tank top or bandeau para hindi mahalay ang dating! :p

Here’s a tip: since I like wearing shorts & skirts, I always make sure I pair them with a more “covered up” top. Sport it with shirts instead of tank tops alone, or if you want to wear tank top w/ it then layer it with a shrug or vest so that everything doesn’t look “tight” (from top to bottom) gets nyo? But if you’re going on a trip (say beach) then I guess this look is just right.

THE OUTFITEY:

White spaghetti top: Forever 21

Yellow chiffon top: Missy for Bayo

Denim shorts: Forever 21

Leopard print sandals: Schu

Vintage sling bag: Gucci

That’s all!

Today’s Outfitey: Chiffon Dress 01

Posted on

As I’ve mentioned before, if there’s a material I’m obsessed with it’s silk & chiffon. There’s something about how simple & elegant these two fabrics represent.Aside from living in a tropical country, I’ve noticed my love affair for silk & chiffon even before I knew what they are. Sabi ko pa when shopping for fabric: “…gusto ko yun tela na manipis yun parang see-through na yun itsura.” saleslady: “Ah chiffon po yun, meron din ganung gawa na silk.” Aaaaah yun naman pala!

So for today’s outfitey, I’ll share one of the best chiffon dresses I have.

Ganda lang ng details sa left shoulder area, so breezy & flows perfectly on your body yung dating.

sea blue?

 THE OUTFITEY:

Blue chiffon dress: bought in Singapore ($15) winner di ba?!

Off white strappy: Charles & Keith

Remember when wearing anything chiffon or see-through (unless needed & included)  wear something inner, a basic camisole or bandeau will do.

That’s all!

Today’s Outfitey: Black Fitted Blazer

Posted on

I’m not really a regular working mom but I do have a few office and smart casual outfitey need for my kind of work 😉 Blazers nowadays aren’t just for office wear and it’s no excuse if you don’t have one. So for this post, I’d like to share with you how you can spice up a casual looking outfitey with this key piece.

bb: black blazer

buttoned version

E yun lahat ng pictures ko lagi akong nakatingin sa baba?! haha sorry. I think the candid look is much better than the other poses. heehee. photo courtesy of yayey! ayan na (pwede nang photographer!)

Sorry na, siguro you’re all thinking na summer na summer pero super blazer ako? I needed to dress like this for work. so I took the opportunity to use it in my blog’s fashion segment. If you’re working then this could be a good example on how you can maintain the “causal” look without looking officey. So after work, you can just remove the blazer & sport your twins (if you take them as your asset) or keep the blazer if you just wanna hang out or have dinner with friends. I personally like the contrast of the colors perfect for summer, it won’t make you look all dark & gloomy.

THE OUTFITEY:

Flowy cami top: Chocolate Clothing

Faded denim: Terranova

Black blazer: Zara

Grey open toe wedge: Zara

That’s all!
