Spent the holidays at the beach as usual. 
Here's our throwback to vintage seaside style with the classic headscarf!

Happy New Year everyone!!!!!

White Winter

Dec 28, 2010

I've never known this kind of cold. 

Oh Canada. 

loose & relaxed

Dec 26, 2010

Vintage denim shirt, Forever21 pants, H&M sunglasses, ARANAZ necklace, Michael Kors heels, ARANAZ bag

The day before Christmas Eve, I ran around doing some last minute shopping.
Remind me to never do that again...the malls were crowded and the lines were crazy!
Dressed for comfort in these 'gym class/sweat/jogging' pants. Never thought I'd see the day
I'd be wearing something like this outside of PE class or the gym.

Then I came home to this...christmas goodies from The Ramp. Yay! Thank you!!!!

Merry Christmas

stocking stuffers

What do I want for Christmas??? Please Please Please...

Alongside the highest heels, bright red lipstick, or the perfect party dress the
Forever 21 Gift Card (sold in P1000 and P2000 denominations) is a great gift to give anyone this Christmas (or on any occasion even!).

I'm sure Forever21's brand ambassadors would agree...

Forever 21's five young and fashionable brand ambassadors at Forever21 party:
Patricia Prieto, Lissa Kahayon, Tricia Gosingtian, David Guison and Dominique Tiu. 

i see spots

Dec 19, 2010


 vintage Lanvin-esque top, Topshop jeans, thrifted blazer, Suelas flats

So I finally got a new lens for my camera (Thank you Patty Mendoza for helping me out!) and I've been having lots of fun with it. I didn't realized what a big difference it could make!

Also, the last shot (with hair flip and all) was completely candid I promise. Hahaha! 

The pair of shoes I designed for Suelas

Rosanna Aranaz, at 23 years old, is already at the forefront of a revolution. Armed with nothing but a camera, a fresh perspective on style, and an innate sense for adventurous ensembles, Rosanna's everyday sartorial exploits run the whole length of the fashion spectrum. High fashion pieces, department store items and thrifted finds all find their place in creatively inspiring outfits chronicled street-style by this budding icon who just wants to be, simply, little miss dress-up.

Suelas is extremely proud and honored to work with Rosanna Aranaz for our Holiday 2010 Collection. Her timeless, yet endlessly inventive sense of style is a perfect match for our vision of making innovative footwear for the contemporary woman of today.

Her exclusive design for Suelas was inspired by the androgynously adventurous mix of the classic men's tasseled loafer and the fun, yet feminine leopard print topped by just the right bit of sparkle for that holiday magic. Perfectly Rosanna Aranaz and perfectly Suelas.

The Nutcracker

Dec 18, 2010

Last night, I had the time of my life. My fabulous auntie took me to see The Nutcracker at the National Ballet of Canada ignoring her better judgment. Of course, she knew I would die of heart palpitations once she handed me orchestra tickets to the one ballet I have always wanted to see but never managed to. (Just one of those things...very much like the way I want to see The Wizard of Oz but never get around to actually doing it.)

My father and I are crazy about Tchaikovsky. The Nutcracker Suite being our favorite. When I say we love it, I mean we don't only have the orchestral masterpiece blasting from our car on a chilly december evening... we have also had it on repeat in the heat of summer. I even learned the simplified version on the piano so I could play it for him after having dinner. (I swear we don't live in a little house on the praire.)

I really wish he could have seen it with me.

It was such a magnificent spectacle!

Thank you, Auntie Cita. 

It's such a joy to see all these wonderful shows with you.

Great news! I was selected to become one ofSO!F.A.B's brand ambassadors.

Seeing shelf after shelf packed with every kind of shoe imaginable must be every girl's dream. 
During the SO! F.A.B shoot we were gushing over the adorable pink shelves and the rows of shoes that came with it. 

Visit the SO! F.A.B website and check out my shoe picks!

Vest Dress

Dec 9, 2010

H&M vest, H&M bag, vintage trousers, Renegade Folk heels,

Isn't it obvious I've been wearing my H&M vest nonstop? 
To think I've had it for over 2 years...I love rediscovering things from the back of my closet.

Face Hunter in Manila

Dec 6, 2010


One of my favorite street style photographers, Yvan Rodic of Face Hunter is going to be here in Manila this December! I'm very disappointed that I won't be here to attend the event :( I'm so jealous of everyone who will get to go! Hope one of my friends will go so I can get a signed copy of his book.
