turning japanese

My cousin gave me this maxi skirt from Uniqlo for Christmas. No matter how much I wish I could pull off a maxi skirt, I just don't have the height for it. Thankfully, I am also in search for the perfect midi to pair with my footwear of choice, the boots. :) 

So, a snip here and a tuck there and voila!

For this look, I was inspired by the Japanese and decided to play up with the proportions. Of course, when I was styling this, I didn't realize this proportion is actually a thing now. Embracing frumpterable!

I paired the midi with an equally voluminous top and bell sleeves. 

And of course, my combat boots to top it all off!

beauty finds

Some of latest discoveries:

1. Clean Face Oil free BB cream from The Face Shop and 2. 24/7 Glide-on eye pencil in Perversion from Urban Decay 

I was using another BB cream from The Face Shop but noticed that it makes my face even more oily and I literally feel like my face is melting at the end of the day. So decided to try this BB cream from the Clean Face line. (I also use Clean Face extra mild toner which my skin is loving!) I've been using this for 2 weeks now and it gives my skin a much lighter, more breathable feeling. As a bonus, it has a lovely mild non-make-up-ey smell. :P

The eye pencil was an impulsive buy as Sephora. As the name suggests glide-on doesn't leave nasty clumps when applying or after wearing it for a while. Loving how a black kohl produces that instant drama!

the perfect pump

I love my good old black court shoes from Charles & Keith but it's gone through so much beating as they are pretty much my go-to everyday pair. So, last weekend, I went searching far and wide for the perfect pump (right everyday heel!) and ended up at an unlikely place - Nine West. (Not a big fan of the brand.) But was sold by this comfy pair with an interesting origami-like heel AND selling at 50% off!

 My perfect pumps must have the right shape AND the right height since I do a lot of walking and running after the bus!

Went to Manila for a very short trip last month. I managed to sneak in a quick trip to Blanco at SM Aura and scored this neon top sale for half-off!

I've paired it with my gray trousers for a full neon effect! 

The trousers are Ma's old pair from the 80s! I love the loose fit and boxy cut (and I think I've spied some similar silhouettes at Zara lately.) 


I was wearing: Blanco neon top, Ma's old trousers, studded sandals from H&M.
