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. Do you believe that your choices contribute in anatomising your nature? The way your preference would lean towards branded ware all the way down to the fact that you [...]

app_full_proxy

[Post by Eena Acuña] I remember it was only a few days before I found out I was attending an event hosted by PETA was I admiring (and slightly cuddling) a cute furry pencil case my friend Sab had recently purchased from Saizen.  The moment she showed it to me I wanted to scream “Its [...]

Shopping for Everyday Things

Mango, Bag - Renko | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

Different strokes for different folks. It’s just the way it is. Like how certain events happen to some and don’t to others. Or how a hammer is directly associated with a nail. Though it’s true that a few may run parallel to each other, there’s that considerable number that goes against the direction where the [...]

Be My Valentine Lunch at Spiral

Sasha Manuel - Pre-Valentine's Day Lunch at Spirals, Sofitel | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

The idea came up when my lawyer friend, R, had inquired after a possible get together that I’ll be hosting. Of course, I was keen on all of us hanging out again, I immediately checked my calendar. When I realised that the day of hearts was coming up, I decided that it’d be fun if [...]

Have you ever had a thing for something in particular that had you much too riveted to consider something else?

Owning Leather Bags

Aldo Accessories, Premium Milled Leather Collection, McCollom - Hobo Bag, cross-body bag, black leather bag | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

I can never tell genuine leather from synthetic ones. That’s why I try to stay away from them as much as I possibly can. What makes “staying away” exceptionally hard is that they can look esp gorgeous most of the time. It can’t be helped (shopping for one, that is) so what I do is [...]

Fashion at the Bobbi Brown Briefing

Bobbi Brown, Pretty Powerful - Carrot | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

I can only describe it as light and intimate, like a group of girl friends having coffee one afternoon somewhere in Makati. I listened to Ina introduce the Bobbi Brown makeup brand, the Pretty Powerful campaign and her lighthearted account of her own Pretty Powerful story. Carrot shared her own poignant story as well. It [...]

Texture and Edge

Scarf, Knit, Taupe - Warehouse | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

Lately, I’m noticing that my mood has changed and it somehow affected my personal style. I’m finding that I’m more adventurous in terms of what I’d choose to wear and I’ve also observed that the things I’d end up buying are not the sort I’d usually go for. It’s actually a nice change since I’m [...]

Costume Ideas: Hat Headpiece and Sequined Mask

Accessorize, Sequined Mask | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

It’s slowly becoming a happy tradition among my cousins and I to have a little fun whenever we congregate around the dead. I had introduced the idea back in 2008, asking folks to put on costumes for our annual visit to the cemetery (Manila Memorial Park) every 31st of October. Though it has to be [...]

Yay, New Accessories!

Aldo Accessories, Chain Bracelet with Magnet Clasp | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style

As I heard the door shut and felt the car lurch forward, I realised that in my haste to get out of the house and be on the road, I had forgotten to wear earrings. I was already running late for a meeting and I knew I really didn’t have the time to turn around [...]
