OOTD: Of Skaters and Sneakers

Thursday, January 07, 2016

     Prolly you've noticed that it's very rare for me to make an OOTD post. Well, I have two outfit post due last year but the bummer in me forgot where I stored the photos. I mean, I have this tendency of transferring all the photos from my phone's memory card to my usb. Those usb came from events. I'm not bragging but I have a lot of them. Since most of them have cute designs, I keep them but I forgot to mark one by one so that if time comes  I need to transfer my photos, I don't have to insert them on my laptop one by one.

     Anyhoo, I have no choice but to do what I've said above and after fifteen tries I found OOTD shots taken last year after an event. The photos were shot using my shopgirl jen's phone and she emailed the photos to me, I downloaded it and stored in one of the usbs. To make a long story short, I'm posting an outfit of the day from last year. 
OOTD: Of Skaters and Sneakers
     This photo was taken around September 2015 outside Mega Fashion Hall. If my memory serves me right, it's around 5:00 p.m. This is an impromptu shot. I don't have plans of doing an OOTD that day since we just came from an event but when I saw shopgirljen taking photos of another blogger- Karina of digitalfilipina.com, I told them that I'll join.
OOTD: Of Skaters and Sneakers
     I'm sure that you've seen some of the outfit posts that I published way, way back. When the skater skirt became a staple in every girls closet, I'm proud to say I'm one of them. Skater skirts are flexible, easy to pair with almost all kinds of clothing and foot wear.

     I have a very sensitive feet, I presume you've seen me wearing this sneakers in my photos over and over again. It's really comfy to wear, I didn't experience pain or other problems with this Skechers Go Walk 2 sneakers.

     So there you go, I can say this is my default outfit to date. I just mix and match them. We have an erratic weather but most of the time it's hot and humid. Wearing this pair somehow eases my body from the hot weather especially when going out and go to events. Outfit details below :)

Bonding with Kenzo at the Res|Toe|Run Rumble Yard Event

Saturday, October 31, 2015

     Can I say that I'm lucky because I have bonding time with Kenzo everyday at home? Since I'm a stay-at-home mom, I have all the time in the world to spend quality time with him. I've seen him grow physically, emotionally and mentally. The experience of seeing his actions everyday is pure bliss. But there are times that we get boring, doing the same stuff everyday. So when the need to unwind and relax outside the house arise, we go out and chill in the mall. There are so many ways on how to spend quality time with your family and kids, sometimes the best venue- inside your favorite malls!

     Weeks ago, I was invited to have a unique bonding time with Kenzo. This bonding time is something that the whole family can do. Shoe shopping, anyone? Yes, buying a pair of shoes is a bonding where time will be well spent. I've realized that choosing the style of foot wear that I'll buy for my son will be more exciting if he's inside the store with me. There are times that I do the shoe shopping alone hence I've bought the wrong size and he doesn't want the style. With this kind of bonding, I've seen how Kenzo responded to different shoe styles. With this, he's able to show me what's inside his mind. More highlights of the event below :)
     Res|Toe|Run is the country's first and only restaurant-inspired multi-brand shoe shop: a Shoetopia for Shoeaholics, designed to satisfy one's infinite appetite for shoes. The product mix is divided into 3 categories:

RES represents the comfortable casual footwear line; 
TOE is composed of toe-flaunting sandals and flip-flops; 
RUN is made up of active and athletic-inspired shoes.

     Res|Toe|Run is bringing into the country a whole new world of shoe shopping experience with its wide array of heritage and alternative footwear brands. Res|Toe|Run aims to expand its reach to Filipino families everywhere with 50 stores this 2015 and the launch of its collection of Kids brands through the kids’ Rumble Yard. 
Bonding with Kenzo at the Res|Toe|Run Rumble Yard Event
     The Res|Toe|Run Kids Rumble Yard officially launched the store’s kids category last October 10-11, 2015 and is held at the Activity Center of Robinsons Magnolia. With the aim of introducing the kids brands available in store, they made this family-bonding activity that run for two days. It's a  playground-themed event that was open to public and to media, celebrities, and online personalities.

     Kenzo and I had a blast during the event. Res|Toe|Run’s kids brands set up fun and exciting booths for boys and girls to explore, create, and enjoy at the Rumble Yard. “The overall idea of the event is to represent each brand’s personality.

  • DC gives the cool and hip vibe
  • Native will awaken their creative side 
  • People Footwear offers excitement and thrill by creating a buzz
  • Flossy and Faux Pas are both for the young girls who love to bring out their princess side

Bonding with Kenzo at the Res|Toe|Run Rumble Yard Event
     The event was an enjoyable moment not only for the kids but for the entire family as well. The Res|Toe|Run Kids Rumble Yard is created for kids to have a special time to bond with their parents through fun and exciting games and activities. Family bonding and spending time with the kids is very important even in simple activities like this. That's why when they invited me and Kenzo to the event, I said yes. Looking for a pair of shoes with my son is a bonding that's so awesome. We enjoyed searching for the perfect pair of shoes.
Bonding with Kenzo at the Res|Toe|Run Rumble Yard Event
     Apart from the booths, the event also hosted a one-hour program that is absolutely engaging such as the Faux Pas Pin the Jams, People Footwear’s Spell it, Win it!, Native’s Twister!, DC Shoes’ Longest Breath Challenge, and Flossy’s Prints Matching game. Families also go home with keepsakes at the Res|Toe|Run photo booth.

     Kenzo enjoyed the tattoo booth, he asked me if I will allow him to have this design on his arm. He wanted Spider Man but it will take more time to do that so the artist just tweaked the design.  It's still cool and Kenzo liked it!

Brands they carry include Native and People Footwear
     More than just a go-to shoe store for the latest hard-to-find footwear selections, Res|Toe|Run seeks to offer the widest array of shoes for each member of the family. With its Kids collection in tow, Res|Toe|Run plates up a delectable footwear menu for just about everyone. I'll share with you Kenzo's OOTD wearing DC shoes soon.

The Practical Guide to Dressing for a Festival

Monday, August 10, 2015

     Festival season is well underway, and this summer is seeing many of us heading off to our very first festival event. And there’s definitely enough choice in the shops when it comes to our fashion choices, from dainty crop tops to patterned playsuits, deciding what to wear can be quite a task! But, what are the real essentials, and what’s going to be a practical choice whilst still looking bang on trend for festival fashion? Read on to find out what’s best to – and not to – wear if you’re planning on going to a festival this summer.
Playsuits Aren’t Practical

     Although the majority of us are sure to want to copy the style of Vanessa Hudgens who looked amazing in a pretty little playsuit at Coachella, the truth is, playsuits are definitely not the most practical of outfits to wear for a festival. If it gets chilly and you need to use the portaloo, the last thing that you’re going to want to do is get undressed in that small amount of space. 
The Practical Guide to Dressing for a Festival
     Dresses are a lot more practical at a festival if you’re looking for something just as cute as a playsuit. Choose a light, flowy dress with a trendy print – geometrical, floral and animal prints are all massive trends for this summer that will look fabulous, whatever festival you’re planning to attend. 
Flared Trousers

     Another fashion comeback that’s a huge trend this summer are flared trousers. However, if you’re thinking of wearing a pair of these to a festival, they’re not the most practical of choices – by day three when there’s no grass in sight and everything’s turned to mud, they’ll be your worst enemy as they drag along the floor and get you covered in mud. Plus, if you’re wearing wellies, are they going to look good together?

Denim Shorts

     You can’t get more practical at a festival than a simple pair of denim shorts. Paired with a floaty blouse, crop top, vest top and a pair of wellies – there really is nothing that basic denim shorts won’t go with. If you’re worried about feeling the cold, you could even take a pair of plain black leggings or tights to wear underneath, and you still won’t ruin your look. Yes, we’ve decided that when it comes to practical, fashionable festival wear, denim shorts are your best friend. Available to buy from almost anywhere, you really can’t go wrong!

Footwear

     Although you might want to pull out your favorite sandals especially if the weather’s forecast to be good, the most practical footwear that you can choose for a festival is a pair of wellies. After a couple of days even in dry weather the amount of people are sure to churn up some mud and muck, and the last thing you want to be doing is walking around getting your feet wet and dirty. Whether you choose to buy a pair of cheap wellies for the occasion or invest in a stronger, sturdier more expensive pair, we can’t stress enough how important it is to wear wellies – or at least waterproof footwear – at a festival this summer. 

Bags

     Festivals are jam packed full of people, so the last thing that you want to be doing is worrying about whether or not somebody’s pinching something out of your bag. Expect to be jostled around and pushed into a lot as well, so taking your five hundred dollar designer handbag to a festival is probably not the best of ideas. Instead, invest in a cheap rucksack, body-cross bag or even a bum bag where you can store any valuables, tickets, and money rather than leaving these items in your tent. 

Accessories

     When it comes to accessories you really can go wild at a festival, with everything from body jewelry to elaborate floral headdresses available. However, some accessories you’re really not going to want to forget – remember to protect yourself from the sun by wearing a pair of sunglasses, or at the very least a hat. Floppy hats are really in this summer, so why not wear one of those to keep yourself in the shade and looking fashionable and trendy at the same time. 

     Are you an avid festivalgoer? Which outfits do you tend to choose when you attend a festival? Do you have any advice or tips regarding what to wear for first time festivalgoers? Whether you’ve just come back from your first festival or attend a few different ones every year, we’d love to hear your experiences and advice in the comments below.

How to Dress for Success Without Emptying Your Wallet

Sunday, August 09, 2015

     50 Cent is all over the news these days after he filed for bankruptcy. Quite a big turnaround for a guy who was named by Forbes as the fourth wealthiest hip-hop artist with an estimated $155 million net worth. The bankruptcy filing comes after a court ordered him to pay $5 million in a sex tape trial.

     Talking about his bankruptcy, 50 Cent said he borrowed gold chains and watches just to keep up appearances that he lived a lavish lifestyle. While we’re sure Fiddy will be back making millions from his various business ventures, it seems this latest episode in his life is a case of dressing for success and going broke in the process. 
How to Dress for Success Without Emptying Your Wallet
Here are a few tips on how to dress for success on a budget - and hopefully avoid 50 Cent’s fate.

Create Your Signature Look

     Steve Jobs had his black turtleneck and blue jeans, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has his grey t-shirt and hoodie, Carrie Donovan (fashion editor for Vogue) had her large eyeglasses, black clothing, and pearls. These people kept their wardrobe simple and consistent and following in their footsteps can help you save money too! No need to buy several clothes if you basically have a uniform when you go to work. Another benefit is that it saves you time because you don’t have to fuss every morning on what to wear.

     “You can have anything you want in your life if you dress for it,” said Edith Head in her book 1967 book How to Dress for Success. Dressing up well has an impact on the way we think and the way we work so consider your trip to the department store an investment in your career.

Review The Fashion Items You Already Have in Your Wardrobe

     When was the last time you cleaned out your closet? You might want to do it soon and you just might find pieces that you can still use. Perhaps you might find some pieces that you stocked away and have forgotten. And no, I’m not talking about the clothes you wore when you were an intern five years ago and you were two sizes smaller.

     Taking stock of what you have in your wardrobe can also help you avoid the mistake of buying similar clothing. A quality attire stands the test of time, as long as these still fit you well, of course.

Get Back to Basics

     Some clothes just say “professional” at one glance. These are your slacks and dress shirts for men while women get more options when it comes to what the basics are but this includes skirts and blouses. If you’re going to spend on a new wardrobe and not go with the ones that are already in your wardrobe, these basics are a good place to start.

     If you think about it, you’ll be spending 5 days of the whole week dressed in them so these will get a lot of use. Spending a little more for quality clothes that last and also look good can prove to be a wise move. It’s also easy to mix and match when you get a set of basics.

A Blazer is Your Best Friend

     Putting on a blazer or a coat makes it easy to look professional. Plus wearing one helps you feel authoritative not to mention it helps hide a crinkled shirt. The trick to wearing it well is to pick one that fits you well. Stick to dark colors without any stripes and you’ve got something to wear throughout the work week!

Shop Only When It’s On Sale

     End-of-season sales and other sale events are a great time to shop for the basics and blazers. But don’t overdo it! Once you’ve had a full set to cover your workweek, forget about updating your wardrobe until it needs replacing. You’re not saving money when you bought something on sale if you don’t need it.

     So dress for success! With these handy tips, you don’t have to spend too much to look professional at work. Need more tips on how to dress for success on a budget? Hit the link! So tell us, how else do you save on what you wear to work? Let us know in the comments!

OOTD: May the 4th Be With You

Friday, May 15, 2015

     Hi dearies! The title of the post says it all though it was taken days after May 4th. If you're a Star Wars fan, I presume you have witnessed the collaboration of Star Wars and Folded n Hung last December during the Star Wars X Folded n Hung launch. The collection from this collaboration includes designs from iconic characters of the first trilogy. If you want to see the event highlights, click HERE :)

     For this OOTD (Outfit of the Day), I decided to go simple casual look. I wore this to an event that I've attended at Fairview Terraces. I'm happy that my dress went well with my Skechers GoWalk2 sneakers and my snakeskin Celine inspired bag from The Baggeria. What do you think? I was sporting a red lippie here and I'm not comfortable wearing bright red lipstick. I hope I was able to pull it off, comment below what you think okay? Outfit details after the jump. Photos by Mish Rendon :)

     During the launch, I was having a hard time on what style of dress to choose. This print was my second choice. I really wanted to get the other style of dress that has a mesh sleeves. But unfortunately, the sizes left on display were too big for me. The prints on this dress are the starships, cruisers, battleships and other spacecraft in the Star Wars movie.

OOTD: Black and White

Friday, April 03, 2015

     It's been ages since my last OOTD (Outfit of the Day) post. Since the sky was clear, weather and the location was the perfect tandem for an outfit shoot, I decided to have another outfit post with the help of my blogger bestie Jen Maslang of shopgirljen.com

     This outfit is very simple. If you follow me on my social media accounts, I presume you've already seen me wearing these pieces. This was the attire I wore at the event I've attended last week in BGC. We were advised to wear a black and white outfit. When there's an event where we are required to wear something or let's say there's an attire, I usually ask help with my fasyown blogger friends. They know that I'll be asking "what to wear, what to wear" three days before the event. I always feel that I'll be under dress if I follow my decision when it comes to formal event. Anyhoo, here's the outfit post :) Details of my outfit after the jump!

6 Modern Ways to Wear Pearls

Thursday, March 19, 2015

     Long before pearls starting gracing fashion magazines and movie premiers, men and women throughout history have been coveting them for their lustrous natural beauty. The poster child of timeless elegance, these organic gems have slowly been making their presence known in the past few years – most recently, on the 2015 Oscar Awards. But pearls don’t necessarily have to be limited to glamorous awards shows. Let’s take a look at some modern ways that pearl jewelry can best be worn.

The Double Drape

     If you’ve got a single strand pearl rope necklace, it can be given a whole new feel just by looping and draping it twice around your neck. While it works great with turtlenecks or other tops with high-necklines, it provides a modern look with a sexy allure when worn underneath a blouse with the top buttons popped open to just the right level. 

The Larger, the Better

     Larger pearls make a bold statement and complements outfits of neutral colors quite nicely. Large chunky bracelets are often showcased best when worn with short-sleeved tops whereas big pearl earrings can complete a sophisticated formal look.

Romantic with Ribbons 

     Wearing pearls with accessories of varying textures dresses up even the most casual outfits. While online pearl necklace stores usually have an abundance of necklaces with pearls and diamonds, ribbons and pearls work just as perfectly for that date-night ensemble. The combination of the soft fabric of ribbons and the hard sheen of pearls can add up to a romantic and whimsical piece to be pulled off even when wearing everyday outfits. 

On Accessories 

     Wearing pearls doesn’t have to be limited to the most common ways of wearing jewelry. Pearls can be added as embellishments on shoes, belts, watch straps, and even on hats. Add a touch of elegance to your look by wearing a pearl headband, or go the glamorous route by carrying a pearl clutch.

     Taking a cue from pearl accessories, these lustrous gems can also be sewed directly onto the fabric of your clothes. If Lupita Nyong’o’s red carpet stunner of a gown wasn’t proof enough that this works, try telling that to the fashion police. Different-sized pearls on the breasts of a cotton sweater can take it a level up from comfort casual, while pearls on denim overalls have been taken off the runway and onto the streets in trendy everyday wear.

     Hair pins with single pearls look great on messy buns and chignons, and gives a fun and carefree vibe to your crowning glory. It may take a while for all of them to be removed afterwards and you may need to be extra careful about where you lay your head on while wearing them, but the look speaks for itself. 

     Pearls are a lot more versatile than most people give them credit and can be used for more than just formal occasions. Whether you wear yours in a more traditional way or with a more edgy feel, pearl jewelry pieces are a must-have for every girl’s accessories box.

Women’s Outwear Trends For 2015

Friday, March 13, 2015

     Near the end of winter, we tend to keep an eye out for all that the upcoming season has to offer, especially when it comes to outerwear in the wardrobe department. And for that particular reason, coats and fleece jackets are considered the biggest trend among the must-haves. Keeping that in mind, here’s a compilation of the outerwear trends that are poised to be a hit in fashion outlets, consisting of designs that are bound to make you look trendy and fabulous.
Women’s Outwear Trends For 2015

Faux leather shearling and denim jackets

     Nothing gets hotter than a cozy, plush coat, figuratively and literally. Shearling coats are warm and can be worn as soon as the spring season comes to an end. Shearling jackets featuring faux leather are trending these days. 

     Another classic wardrobe staple is the denim jacket that continues to be made available in a variety of designs and style. Denims are one of the top figure-enhancing outerwear for the spring/summer season. These jackets can be dressed up when going out of town or worn casually; you can even consider styles with roll-up or three-quarter sleeves. 

Summer blazers 

     With lightweight and versatile blazers, you can dress down or up for any occasion. For the upcoming season, blazers are available in a variety of styles, including cuff sleeves and relaxed fit to give a slimming appearance. 

     Another trend is the single button blazer featuring ruched sleeves and notched lapels. Other styles include summer blazers with lightweight fabrics available in several styles including three-quarter length sleeves and linen or cotton. The wide range of color and style make them suitable for any occasion. 

Bomber jackets 

     Bomber jackets made with cotton and luxurious silk are expected to be the rage next season. In colors such as Navy blue and styles such as granddad collar, the bomber jacket is going to enable a huge fashion statement with timeless designs. 

     Bomber jackets have been preferred as outerwear for several decades and exciting variations of the trend are made every year. Fabric choices, styles and colors of these jackets vary for different brands, and sometimes even for the same brand. For instance, Burberry makes bomber jackets with cotton and silk blend for the summer season. 

Fleece vest jackets 

     Preppy clothes like button-downs and microfleece jackets is a fair game for most seasons, including the summers, making it grounds for any good outerwear investment. Also, these jackets, apart from promoting style and comfort, enables the wearer to accommodate multiple items courtesy of zip pockets featured on most of them. 

     For medium levels of activity during the winter season or for a season such as fall or spring, a mid-weight fleece jacket will suffice. A lighter jacket will provide flexibility for active sports play, while heavy sized jackets should be reserved for the busy winter days. 

Biker jackets 

     Biker jackets are adorned all over, and 2015 is no different. Look for a style featuring flashy accents and contrast sleeves. Another style that made the biker silhouette again is the jacket featuring embroidery in shiny paillettes and muted colors. 

     Seek biker jackets in tailored silhouettes and dark colors, featuring unique embroidery work. You can wear it with a fit and flare dress and narrow panel silhouettes. Choose plain fabrics for the rest of the attire to enable the embellishment to stand out. 

Feature: Meet My Feet Shoe Store + OOTD

Friday, February 06, 2015

     When it comes to choosing a good pair of shoes for Kenzo, I always consider style and comfort. Kenzo has sensitive feet. Like mother like son, huh? I have sensitive feet that's why choosing the most comfortable foot wear for me is tedious. Good thing I discovered a shoe store that offers comfort and up to date style of foot wear for the little boys and girls. I'm glad that there's a unique shoe store for kids in the name of Meet My Feet. 

     We visited Meet My Feet Fairview Terraces branch last January to check out the latest foot wear for boys. Upon reaching the store, Kenzo run hurriedly inside and sat in one of the elephant stools. He also reached some toys that were on display. I worried because he might broke something but it's actually there for the kids to play with. The unique concept of Meet My Feet's interactive play had helped me chose the pair of shoes for Kenzo fuss-free. Kenzo was busy tinkering the toys while I'm checking out the stylish and comfy shoes on display. Excited to see what I picked for Kenzo?
