Valentine Mood #4

Staying long hours in the office makes me want to go back in time and be back in college again. College life-the inspiration for my 4th Valentine mood.

Style Star: Selena Gomez | Theme: College Crush  (Drive in movie date)

Valentine 2011 fell on a monday. Imagine yourself waking up late, donning comfy clothes and shoes, walking to your next class… rather than rushing through traffic in your usual office attire and classic pumps (which actually makes you look 10 years older).

Get a little breathing space, throw in this university student get up and grab tickets to that movie (or ball game) you’ve been dying to watch.

Valentine Mood #3

Are you the America’s sweetheart type of girl? Then this set is for you.

Style Star: Katy Perry | Theme: 1950’s fun (Picnic date)

Pin up swimsuits are so hot now, love your curves, grab that  vintage style swimsuit and feel like Katy Perry (or Betty Grable) for a day.

Swimsuit: Dolce and Gabbana, Bag: Moschino, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Falsies: Benefit, Nail Polish: Topshop. Complete details here

Escape from the hustle in the city and head outdoors. It maybe in a secluded beach, by the lake, on a boat, in a ranch or farm or even in your own backyard. Go have fun, just don’t forget to put on your sunblock! :)

Valentine Mood #2

I’m keeping my promise.  5 style sets to guide you on your perfect Valentine Day Look (or probable gifts to your loved ones). This wasn’t a busy weekend for me, so here is my second installment.

Style Icon: Kate Moss | Theme: Love Grunge (Grab and Go Lunch)

Top: H&M, Shirt: Helmut Lang, Denim Shorts: Levi’s, Bag: Proenza Schouler PS2, Necklace: Tiffany & Co., Gel Eyeliner: Bobbi Brown, Lipstick: Mac

This look was a bit easy for me to put together, my personal style is almost the same as this. Casual, laidback, loose, boyish, mixture of old and new, with just a little splash of color. For complete details of this look, click here.

Just stay tuned for the next 3 looks. It’s gonna be all exciting!

Shop Crazy at Tyler

I went crazy buying dresses today, I liked 3 dresses from Tyler (Rockwell branch) but ended up buying 2, the other one was purchased at Tyler Shangri-la. Two weddings to attend in the next 3 weeks gave me that simple excuse to splurge on dresses.

My first encounter with this store was way back 2001, since then I kept coming back for those “special occasion clothing needs”. They have skilled sales assistants that will dress you up after answering 2 questions: For what occasion and do you have any color preference? Then they’ll bring out the items that will suit your needs.

Don’t be deceived by their windows and racks, as they normally display their safest items (everyday wear). Lovely dresses come out of the stock room when you ask for it.

Here is my most “sulit” purchase from Tyler:

Tyler black tulle dress circa 2007 and still fashionable up to now

So next on the list, gift items. As mentioned on my tweet last monday “this week is going to be a shopping week” :).

Note: Tyler is located at Adora, Greenbelt5, Shangri-la Mall, Glorietta 4 and Powerplant Mall, Rockwell.

D & G Spring/Summer 2011

Dominico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection is relaxed, fresh, young and pretty. Bubble shorts, floral tops,  gingham head scraves paired with sky-high wedge espadrilles and over-sized canvas bag.

The collection reminded me of my house dresses and cabbage patch kid dolls more than Snow white and the seven dwarfs. The runway filled with fresh blossoms, ferns and ivy reminded me of mom’s pocket garden in the province, (the side of our house, passage from our lawn to the backyard) filled with roses, daisies and bougainvilleas.

Here are some of my picks from the collection

I love all these. Spring will be exciting!
