Believe it or not, I had planned on sharing this story back in November 2013. But a whirlwind came into my world and asked a lot from my time and energy that I only had time to do this today. Quite happy that I found the photos I had worked on then, saved a lot […]

Stacked x Military-inspired; Tog du jour

Sasha Manuel, Military, Army, Khaki, Dress, Tog du jour, Outfits, Lookbook, Australia | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

A provocative, avant-garde twist to a typically mannish military-inspired style with its body contouring form, roughed up with ruching details and silver hardware, add to that the alluring dip of the neckline that can go deeper, zipped down. The modest hem length balances out the sexy, just a couple or so inches above the knee; […]

Oz Online Shopping, Sportsgirl; Marino Rocks, Tog du jour

All in the name of research. Save for the strain the activity would put on my wallet, it’s one of the things I appreciate about what I do. Who can say no to online shopping? And though I can easily pop in at any Sportsgirl store, I’ve been curious on how they go about their […]

Oz Online Shopping: Cotton On

Large Parcel, Cotton On, Rubi, Typo, Online Shopping, Australia | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

What started out as a simple FB-messaging-slash-online-window-shopping — a pair of expensive Miu Miu sunglasses, browsing through shopping websites, and general chitchat about needing more boys boots in our lives — turned into an online bargain shopping at wee hours of the morning (my time) to kick start my Australia Day Weekend. Online shopping, the […]

OOTD: Maps, Bags, And Printed Vintage; Navy Fridays

Maps, Prints, & Bags | Brown, Navy, Circle Sunnies, Vintage

“We shall sail like Columbus..” A few days after I saw the movie Life of Pi, I saw a particular item that quickly reminded me of this line from the movie. Sometimes I wake up and have “today I feel like vintage” days aside from my usual…Old soul tendencies? Brown x Navy has always been […]

Colour Crushing on Rose Gold

Veering away from my apparent partiality to neutrals, I try to create a compulsive spin on my colour preferences. It’s already a given that I’m currently experimenting on prints across all style elements, such as leopard print and striped tees (more on prints on a later post); understandable that I further extend the reach of […]

Summer Head Gear: Chick Flick Twistband

With the threat of cobwebs and hardened dust, a Chick Flick accessory resurfaced. The head band, or Twistband as it’s called, has been around for months now but was sentenced to an indefinite stay within the confines of my dresser drawer, save for that day that my friend H fished it out and wore it […]

Hatted, when there’s more than one; Travel pieces

Sasha Manuel, Hat | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

Situation was that I was simply counting down the days before I’m whisked off to another place once again. I was seated in my usual spot at a local Starbucks, sipping my usual venti iced soy latte — managing to fill up the sticker card for the planner gifted to my friend M — and […]

Feather Accessories, Thematic x Topical

A possible reason behind a particular fancy can be extracted from a prevailing fondness for a specific detail that attracts estimation of what is subconsciously appealing.
