Blazer: From Seoul, Korea
Envelope Bag: From Seoul, Korea
Wedges: Millie's

Amidst the sea of colors that is so in right now and is everywhere, I can't seem to leave behind my signature colors: black and white. I tend to gravitate towards these two colors when out shopping. Lol. But I guess they fit with the weather right now in Manila; non-stop rain and a cool atmosphere. The white blazer is one I bought in Seoul. Seoul's love affair for blazers is why the city has somehow become number one in my heart, replacing the ever bustling Hong Kong which was always at the top. But I still heart HK to bits and will always, always want to go back. Forever. Lol. Professing my undying love for it again. But Seoul... Ah, Seoul. We will see each other again. I hope. Fiercely. If anyone wants to do something about their addiction to blazers, I have just the cure in my site

The sleeveless top I am wearing is also from Seoul and I'm selling one just like it here. I do love these kinds of simple tops; ones that can go so well with blazers. No hassles.

Speaking of Seoul, the postcard I sent to myself from the N Seoul Tower has never arrived. What? Yes, people send postcards to themselves all the time as a souvenier. Lol. But sadface, I wanted that postcard! Whyeeee? I paid 400 won for the postage and all too! Lol. Wonder if it will ever come. Sigh.

I still loooove my bag. Lol. Can never get enough of it! You'll love it too! I have it in a different color. Lol. Did I sound like a bad commercial? Lol.

Weather, I hope you brighten up soon.

June 19.

Today is my birthday (Yey. And Fathers' Day! Happy Fathers' Day to every dad in the world!) and there was supposed to be an outfit post but it rained, and it rained, and it's still raining so had no chance of getting any decent photos. I'll just have to wait for another day. I was really looking forward to making one but, oh well. Instead I'll just post this outfit from Vivi Magazine because it's one of my wishes for my birthday. (I would like to think that on one's birthday, they can make all the wishes they want).


So much WANT for this whole ensemble! Why is this made of so much win? The long denim. Eep. Something I've always wanted!! Oh and that hat! So Mad Hatter-esque! But I don't know if it will suit me since they tell me I have a small face. And will it look okay with really short hair? The hat could be a little much but I don't care! Lol. Want. Want. Omg, tell me where I can get them buttheyhavetobewithinbudget. Lol. Actually, everything in Vivi Magazine is always WANT for me. Sigh. I should stop buying them then, huh? Lol. Glad I don't get to buy them every month or else... That's my wish and a trip to Europe. Yeah.

Top: From Hong Kong
Shoes: Millie's
Cuff: From Seoul, Korea

We had a small celebration for my grandmother (mother side) last Saturday and in the past I always had a hard time finding something to wear since I can't wear most of what's in my closet. Black, white, gray. Wearing those colors to moments of celebrations is a sensitive (sometimes big) issue. But I'm glad we have this chic sheer cape-like top now.

They would have preferred red but this works for me as well. Lol. I love the material, the silhouette it gives. And I'm wearing it with new wedges! Wedges and platforms are so in right now. It's like the higher the better. Lol. Have seen such awesome designs but sometimes the height is a little too much for me. All my friends will be complaining! Lol. So, glad to have found this one with,I guess, just the "right" number of inches. If there is such a thing. Lol.

Oh, got a haircut again. Hehe. Anyway, there's only one outfit post for today. There was no time yesterday; our friend's engagement party. Next time I will do better! Watched X-Men First Class; been so long since we've went out and watched a movie but it rocked! Love it! (Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy!) Can't wait for Transformers 3 and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Ack, so sleepy right now. Going to rest my eyes a bit.

Walk as one with the 2011 Havaianas Filipinas Collection.

Fashion has become an avenue to express love for one’s country. As nationalism meets style, the Philippine archipelago, faces of former presidents, heroes, and other national icons are now widely used as designs to convey patriotic statements. And with more Filipinos around the world giving us reason to banner national pride, Havaianas is giving Havaianaticos another trendy option to showcase Philippine pride.

Since 2006, Havaianas has honored the Philippines’ rich and colorful culture with designs that embody the spirit of Filipino pride. This June, Havaianas joins the country as it celebrates its 113th year of independence with the release of this year’s Limited Edition Havaianas Filipinas Collection.

“This year’s Limited Edition Havaianas Filipinas Collection hopes to reflect happiness, carefree fashion, and good memories with the playful use of color and inventive patterns. These attitudes truly match the Filipino culture and even the brand’s cheery personality,” says Anne Gonzalez, Managing Director of Havaianas Philippines.

The Limited Edition 2011 Havaianas Filipinas Collection chose to play with the colors of the national flag. With the dazzling shades of blue, red, yellow, and white, fused with contemporary, street-graffiti prints, the result is a modern yet decidedly nationalistic fashion statement, letting all fashionable Havaianaticos walk as one.

Filipinos from Luzon can literally wear their heritage at their feet with Havaianas Filipinas Yellow, with the name “Luz” imprinted on its soles amid artistic splashes of red and blue. Meanwhile, Visayans can flaunt their nationalism loud and proud with Havaianas Filipinas Red. With intense red straps adorned with the same engraved flag and Havaianas logo, the name “Vis” is printed across its red soles, complemented with vibrant shades of blue and yellow. Those hailing from Mindanao can walk patriotically in Havaianas Filipinas Blue, with lively cobalt soles that feature the name “Min” accented with bright colors of red and yellow.

Each pair’s well-crafted strap carries a unique rendition of the Philippine flag engraved with “Pinas” next to the distinctive Havaianas logo.

Refreshing, stylish, and artistically crafted for all proud and fashionable Filipino Havaianaticos, this year’s Limited Edition 2011 Havaianas Filipinas Collection will arrive in stores on June 12, 2011.

Get your hands on all 3 designs of the Limited Edition 2011 Havaianas Filipinas Collection, available in All Flip-Flops, Celio, Complex, Duty Free Philippines Fiesta Mall, Gas, KidSports, Manila Polo Club, Moana, ROX, Rustan's, Stoked, Tick Tock Flip Flop NAIA Terminal 3, and Urban Athletics.
