After filial responsibilities for a nation’s tradition to spend time and celebrate Todos los Santos at the cemetery, I dashed off to mark the holiday in a more Western way by 12:01. Halloween party at Black Market. Backtracking to 2 days ago, “Costumes K!” — a friend’s text message. I was, like, WHUT. How was […]

Meet Hannah

Hannah Maypa | Style Manila - Fashion, Beauty, Shopping, Manila Street Style, Lifestyle

Listening to a voice that’s real and raw, you’d be filled with wonder and awe. It takes you on a path away from pretensions and shams; away from visuals that seemingly mocks real life, real people. Having your thoughts of style and society shaped by one so easygoing, unconcerned by what most may consider norm, […]

More than two weeks ago, shortly after I landed, I updated a few of my SocMed accounts with a partial photo of a feature that carried a caption that stated, “Manila welcomed me with coffee and a feature on Manila Bulletin’s Style Weekend ♥ oh yea, and traffic. Great to be back!” It certainly took […]

Montessori

Catapulted back to a time when firsts are fresh and school is cool. Clutching metal lunchboxes and worrying about who you’ll sit next to in the school bus, life seemed larger and mysterious and exciting at that time. In a lot of ways, it still is. Granted you still see it through a child’s eye. […]

Tick-tock. Time’s running out. Hurry and get on that friggin’ pumpkin carriage for pete’s sake. Tick-tock. Move over Cinderella. It doesn’t matter if I’m missing out on snagging Prince Charming, I’ve got a pair on that I’m not planning on losing. It may not be comparable to your glass slipper, sweet pea, – nor would […]

Denim Dilemma: Printed vs Distressed

Livening things up in the t-shirt and jeans front are two fantastic details in active rotation: Printed Jeans AND Distressed Jeans. Casual and hip, tough and urban. They’re just the right amount of oomph the simple look needs to make the style staple a little more interesting. But you can’t wear them both at the […]

I need more skirts in my life.

Q1 of 2012, I decided that I want to wear more skirts. Different kinds. I noticed that I’ve already started with a modest skirt collection but I also noticed that the selection isn’t varied enough. A few are the denim kind, there’s one that’s studded, one’s full black lace with cobalt blue lining, some are […]

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 […]

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” ~ Henry David Thoreau ~ There are days when even my imagination needs a bit of a work out. Creativity. Drawn from free-spirited and artistic inspirations, a happy pairing of colourful stitches and wrinkled neutral. Breaking away from a series of familiar thoughts — imperatives; conjectures. […]
