Extra-Long Shirt

September 17, 2015

Hi My Loves,

L.O.V.E. Just spent our unofficial 14th year anniversary in Whistler on September 14 🙂 So I decided to have him as my special guest to talk about his latest fashion craze, Extra Long Shirts.

Lips aren’t sealed: I noticed that these shirts have been up on blogs and on the streets the whole summer and I started to spot them in stores just before Spring. Actually, the first store that I personally saw carried this was Urban Outfitters. Maybe around last year?? I was out shopping with my fave Finlay Porter (Featured in my first blog post). These shirts were part of Urban Outfitters core items (Regular Item they would sell all year round). Fin bought one for $34 that time. Now they sell them for as low as $12 in H&M. That time I just thought that those shirts were made specifically..well..for him..a model, who’s height is double of mine. hahaha Glenn’s been obsessing about them but never really had the guts to tried them on because..let’s face it, he doesn’t have Fin’s height. hahahaha

It didnt really occur to me when these shirts actually started creeping in the market. I just suddenly saw them in blogs, on the streets, then finally in different stores. Since different stores started carrying them there was a greater chance that Glenn can find his perfect lenght and so he did. Glenn faced his fear and finally tried one on from Topman and the rest was history. haha

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: He’s been wearing these extra long shirts all summer long.

Lips aren’t sealed: Lately, these shirts had been my go to shirts. I find them really comfortable and unique. I’d usually wear them with skinnies so it won’t look sloppy because the shirt is already big and extra long. One of my Queen’s fashion advice that I keep in mind.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: I have been wearing them almost everyday during summer. I wear them with trousers when I want to pull a formal look but still relaxed. For my casual look, I’d wear it with my joggers or my biker jeans.

Cullottes

September 10, 2015

Hi My Loves,

I usually try and publish my blog posts on Mondays but I haven’t posted anything for almost two months..so I randomly chose tonight to post something. 🙂

Summer just flew by…I’m sad. But rain and some cold wind isn’t that bad if you think of the opportunities of layering beautiful pieces together. I can wear my leather jacket again. Yay me!

This is how I welcome Fall! my matte “Stone” lipstick by MAC (everyone is asking me about this) with my fave look, white on white. I threw in my black booties and my leather jacket to complete my look. Black is so bold that it makes white stand out more. It makes such a good combination with white as well.

Lips aren’t sealed: I have this exact culottes in Black. I bought them in both colours because I loved it. At first, I thought I would look short in it because there’s too much fabric. I realized with some attitude and after hemming it, I can actually pull it off and look..a lil bit taller. haha I had to chop off about 5 inches off and with us shorties that’s how we can rock this culottes. We have to find the right length for us.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: I wear my black ones at work all the time. I was also wearing the black culottes when we got scouted on Robson Street and won $50 for being a stylish couple. Read the article here.

White Tee

July 6, 2015

Hi My Loves,

Summer has just began and I seem to have burnt myself a little too much already. A bunch of friends decided to hit Wreck Beach (aka Nude Beach) I didn’t go nekkedd in fact I was wearing a one-piece swimsuit hahaha

wt

This gorgeous babe, Melissa David (aka Melibu) and I decided to go earlier just because it was our first time going to Wreck beach and we got a little sun excited. The tan lines in my back happened to look like a “wreck” too lols. To make the long story short I can’t wear any sleeveless tops and my cute little cropped tops for now.

I have been wearing all my loose tees and have been wearing my favourite white tee for this summer! My YAS high-low tee. White is always breathable and that’s why I’ve been using my white tee quite often lately.

Lips aren’t sealed: The ultimate Fashion staple. Each and everyone of us probably has a white tee hanging around in their closet.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: From Brunch, Luncheon to dinner white tee is appropriate as long as you accesorize and style it.

Lips aren’t sealed: “I do wear white tees a lot!! I find them to be like a blank canvas. And the perfect fitting white tee, wheter it’s V-neck, boyfriend fit, or has a shirt tail hem, brings sophisticated ease to any outfit.”

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: “I love to wear mine casually with ripped boyfriend jeans and my converse. But, I also can dress it up with my high waisted vegan leather shorts, and just tuck in the front, with some strappy sandals. I could probably wear a white tee everyday!!”

Modern Fairytale

June 29, 2015

Hi My Loves,

I feel so blessed because of all the people that surrounds me. I get all the love and support I need from each and everyone of you. I believe that everything happens for a reason and that each person that you meet in your lifetime has a purpose.

I recently posted a Save the Date stop motion video with me and my Hugs for our Modern Fairytale celebration next year. I have such a fun time doing the photoshoot with the help of our two good-looking fashion forward friends. Our uber creative photographer Christopher Tayah and who else can help us better with our poses than an off-duty model, Finlay Porter who ended up being our Director for the day. hehe

sd

Topher the epitome of peace and love is not only a creative soul but is actually a computer wiz. He literally did the first draft in 20 mins. The whole thing was pretty much done. The only thing that needed to be changed was the sequence, which took him just another 5 mins. I was in awe. I was literally screaming and tearing up because the video was beautiful. A bunch of photos that he took and made it into a stop-motion video. Praise worthy.

sd-2

Fin with his creative mind as well and experience in modeling gave us pointers while we shoot. His quirky and bubbly personality still comes out but it turned out that he gets more serious when he directs. Another side of him that I’ve never expected. Love it. He made the shoot run smoother and faster.

With both of these beautiful minds combined. Our Save The Date Video was completed the very next day after the shoot.

Also, we’ve been so excited to wear the Infinity shirts and our Beauty & Beast hoodies for literally months!! most thoughtful gifts from our fave couple Sueanne Amisola and Dan Ramiscal. It totally completed our Modern Fairytale theme.

Lips aren’t sealed: I procrastinated a lot. Then the week we decided to do the shoot, it ended up to be my work’s inventory week where I get off at 4:30am for days. sigh. Day before the shoot is when I ended up scouting for a mint green outfit for Hugs, buy a mint green thread and sew my cropped top, skirt including the Tulle skirt I attached to the back of my actual skirt and I had to sew the sleeves of my blazer because I wanted it to look like a cape (inspired by BCBG’s cut-out cape blazer). I also had to iron/steam all our clothes and pack them in garment bags. Yes, night before the actual shoot day I was still frantically checking what I needed for the shoot..coz I had to work the morning of the photoshoot. hahaha Story of my life.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: First look and third look is styled differently but we pretty much used the same outfit but by putting our hoodies.

Denim Vest

June 19, 2015

Hi My Loves,

I apologize for not posting anything last week. It was a busy week at work. A week of INVENTORY! if you work in retail then you know how I feel. I’ve been going home around 4-4:30am. Yes, I work in a department store so that’s a given. Work hard, play hard. Play time on Friday when we did a photoshoot for our wedding’s save the date stopmotion video. Have you seen it? it was an awesome day with two of our very good friends Topher and Finlay. I’m going to have to write about that on my next blog entry.

Summer time! Favourite season ever!!! dont you agree? I’ve been going out and embracing the sun. I got myself a little bit of a tan, thank you very much. During this fabulous season, one of my favourite pieces to wear from my closet is my Denim Vest.

Lips aren’t sealed: I consider this a good investment piece, something that can be worn a lot of times, in different ways and will always going to be around because it doesn’t really go out of style.

Rock it once, Rock it twice, Rock it multiple times: Sometimes, I like wearing denim on denim so I would wear it with my skinny jeans. I also like to pair it with a maxi dress or with a cropped top and pleated pants or a tulle skirt to pull off that boy meets girl look 🙂

For guys, I like it with short sleeve button down shirt and a bowtie. cute. cute. cute.
