Button Down

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but my ultimate dream style is a polished effortless look- not too fashionable, but not too casual either. To leave the house completely bare faced, with a natural glow, hair tied in a high ponytail, and wearing a chic outfit that you look like you just threw on. To look naturally beautiful and perfectly put together without even trying. That’s the dream! It’s not easy to accomplish though if you weren’t born with high cheekbones or enough confidence to let your beauty radiate though. I’m naturally shy, so I tend to smile awkwardly at the sidelines rather than command attention. Even when I know self image is everything, I can’t help but be self critical, just because I know society is insanely critical. I know it probably seems like a complete irony- tons of photos of myself up here, and then me saying that I’m shy. But, the beauty of photos is that it lets me project an image or put on a hat for a while. Through pictures, I seem like the girl in control, but in reality, I hate it when people stare at me or talk about me or even give me compliments! I don’t know how to react and I guess that’s part of the reason why I started this blog. To show a side of me that I couldn’t project in real life. To share my love for fashion and styling with the ability to hide behind a computer screen. To be honest, I don’t really like attending events where I don’t know anyone or have anyone going with me, because I don’t like small talk (mainly cause it feels fake) and I don’t really know how to do it. I just went to a small cocktail gathering last weekend, and headed straight for the buffet table (#clazz) instead of looking for people to mingle with (#badsocialskills). Well, that was also probably because I was starving, but you get the deal. Sometimes it’s hard for me to be in an industry where my personality just isn’t a fit. But I guess the good thing about life is that there really isn’t any rules. So what if you don’t do the norm? So what if you do something other than what everyone expects? So what if I like taking photos of myself by dirt roads beside container vans? lol As long as it’s not a crime, then who really has the right to say what’s right? Right?! It’s that kind of confidence that I really look up to in people. Not the arrogant “look at me” kind, but the ability to do what you want, even when others question you, even when most of the odds aren’t in your favor. Happy Monday!

Cap It

When all else fails, go for all black. It always works! I wore my monochromatic look with this seasons silhouettes: a turtle neck top and wide leg trousers. Of course, I didn’t want it to look too boring so I completed my look with a What A Girl Wants cap! If you’re wondering what this cap is all about, you can read about it here and search for the #shopwagw in instagram. Hope you can all join our cause!

This Old Thing

I know what your thinking. Those birks again? Toilet Slippers? lol. I got featured on a popular instagram account a few days ago wearing my last post in Birks, and got a whole lot of mixed reviews. Either you hate it, or you love it. But honestly? I love it and I’m still wearing it! Your style shouldn’t be dictated by what people say, or what you see online (unless its really cool, or unless its from kryzuy.com! KIDDING!) I mean, nothing should dictate your style really unless you consciously want something to. I’d wear a sock over my head if I felt like it, simply because I can! Life is too short for rules that don’t matter. Right? Who’s with me? Currently, I’m looking to buy Adidas Stan sneakers, but much to my dismay, and much to Mike’s delight- I can’t seem to find them online anywhere or in any of their stores in the Philippines. I even checked Brantano but they don’t ship outside the UK! Any ideas on where I can find one?
