A great weekend at Coachella

Its that time of the year again when the biggest Music Festival is being held in Los Angeles, California. Celebrities are always attending this event and its always great seeing different kinds of fashion sense/taste.  Of course there will always be best and worst dressed. Its also great seeing different hair accessories and hats. With the attire, I am seeing a combination of edgy, classic and bohemian.  It looks like Kristen Stewart is rocking out in classic colors in a cute simple sporty outfit with a cap.  I seriously wish I was there with all the celebrities! It looks insanely fun and Id totally wear a fringed maxi skirt, cut out boots with my tribal Forever 21 crop top and flower crown. Id also wear a graphic maxi dress with my cropped denim jacket, cut out boots and a floppy fedora.  I see that some guests are even brave to wear bikini style clothing or micro cropped tops which Id be too shy to wear in a crowded music festival.

I see the celebrities with the most styles are Kendall Jenner and Vanessa Hudgens.  But so far I think Kendall Jenner is the most fashionable one with her gorgeous maxi cardigans. So far I think the outfit Kendall is wearing in the middle is the best one. I love the bib necklace with the crop top, the maxi sleeveless cardigan, a chain belt and country western booties. Her sister, Kylie has one huge fanny pack that is one of a kind. I also love her fedora hat.

 I also liked how Selena Gomez (who accompanied Kendall and Kylie) wore her see- thru floral dress with shorts, bandeau and a fedora. Its also very stylish that way. That is the best bohemian outfit ever. (look way below) Its not at all slutty and as long as its maxi and not too short. Its also good she has a bandeau underneath. I also love her combat boots.

I see that Vanessa Hudgens is going with a flower child boho look, wearing one of those hippie style dresses. I like how she pairs it with a floppy hat though and not with the typical elastic headband along with her matching bracelets. I also like her outfit with a cropped tube top with a maxi cardigan and a small flower crown that is similar to mine. Im glad she is not wearing a crop top by itself with shorts. Her worst outfit would be her white shorts that are too short with a tube top. I feel that that is to revealing from top to bottom. I think a graphic t shirt would go better with that. But she doesn't have the most flower power.
I think Victoria Justice and her sister are dressed with more flower power in the classic crochet tops with shorts and flower crowns. Flower crowns are what I constantly see at music festivals. That has been an on going hit trend since last year. I think they are really stylish.  But so far I think Victoria Justice's top is a little too plunging and should only be used for the beach and I think she should wear a graphic tank top with her crochet vest.

I see Cara Delevigne is rocking one of those cute and quirky shades for spring. She also has a flower crown look. I see she is not shy to wear a bikini top and hot pants. But her body figure and face can totally pull it off.
As a person with a passion for fashion, I just love observing different celebrity styles.

It was great to hear that Rihanna was one of the performers. So far she is the best dressed performer ever. I always liked her edgy style. I love her bomber jacket with her micro crop top and her studded shorts.  Her leopard adidas sneakers are looking chic. I seriously wanna steal them off her feet!

Easter Chick

Happy Easter everyone! May we all remember that this is the day the Lord has Risen and he has sacrificed for us and I am very thankful for that.  I know how much he suffered and died for us after having a feel of the large wooden cross at one of the stations in Bonifacio High Street. I can feel that pain.
This is the Day that the Lord has made.

Today I decided to color block my outfit with Easter colors, Purple and Yellow along with this new floral crown I got at Forever 21 today.  Last year, I was a bunny and this year, Im a Chick with flowers! This was just to have fun with fashion on Easter Sunday.  I didn't wear the flower crown to Church but added it after Church. Floral crown has been popular since last Spring/Summer 2014 and is still a hit with music festival fashion. They are popular with the guests and celebs and Coachella. Flower crowns are also one of my most favorite pieces ever that they make your outfits stand out more.  Im so happy that there is a sale at Forever 21 which is one of my most favorite stores and I can't wait to intern this week.

I got this floral crown from Forever 21 for only PHP 280.   This yellow blazer is from Forever New in Singapore for only SGD$ 35. Yellow is the color for the summer these days after observing what has been worn all over. 

I am wearing a cropped tank top that I use for yoga as well for only PHP 295. 

These trousers are from a market I got back in October when I went to Cambodia. It is from the night market for only USD$ 5. 

My blog your dreams clutch is from for only PHP 400 something. 

Enjoy this so hot summer!,

Topshop Unique Autumn Winter 2014 Ready To Wear Full Show - London Fashi...

Its all bundle up baby and and solidly simple for TOPSHOP fall/winter 2014! I see constantly navy, gray, brown, black and nude. Some of the styles are pretty in preppy as Im constantly seeing midi skirts with stockings and pinafores.  But as usual I love the leather pieces the best and the color blocked fur coat. Its really great seeing different designers during fashion weeks having different ideas from edgy to classic.  This is the most chic simple collection Ive seen so far among the a/w2014 collections.

 Ive seen some florals used in the fall/winter 2014 as an evolvement from this spring/summer 2014.  I see mostly fur pieces used in this collection as coats and stoles.  I see mostly preppy and classic inspirations. I always thought that sleeveless fur vest always looked chic with long sleeved shirts inside. If I lived in a cold country Id totally wear one with my striped shirt and leather skater skirt.  I also thought the true classic fur sleeveless dresses look so fine and will make you look tall in your high cut stiletto boots.  Im not able to find that many pictures, so just enjoy this long video of the actual fashion show of edgy classic pieces with a backstage access.

Hottest shoes ever: Cut Out Boots

Cut out boots are the best selling shoes these days! They are by far my most favorite trend of 2013-2014. These will never go out of style and looks like they can last long. Balenciaga had the original idea for Spring/Summer 2011. So far they are the edgiest comfortable shoes ever.  There has been many different kinds of designs for gorgeous and edgy cut out booties. I recently just bought a pair of oxford/combat style ones at TOPSHOP while there is a sale going on until May 4.  I only got them for about PHP 599. Check out the sales at TOPSHOP right now before it ends. Everything there is really worth it.   Id love to own the Balenciaga inspired ones someday when Im saved up again as much as I love to collect almost all kinds of shoes once I find my size and a not so expensive one because nowadays Im not needing that many heels unlike before.   Cut out boots are the most convenient booties ever. They can be used for any season as you won't feel hot in them unlike those cushioned ones.  They are also more comfortable and convenient than the high cut combat boots which are more made for a colder climate. 
But these cut out boots can be worn even at outdoor events like music festivals and concerts.  Cut out boots can be worn with any outfit even with your booty shorts. These boots are really made for walking and will make you look super cute at Coachella. 

There are many styles (heels and no heels) and are being sold at many stores such as TOPSHOP, River Island, Forever 21 and new look.  I was very close to getting a pair at River Island (similar to the Balenciaga model)  on sale but then it was damaged and unfortunately the last pair. But theres always a next time if I can find a color block version at new look.   Even Jeffrey Campbell who is known for his edgy leather shoes has these cut out boots.  
 Cut out boots are even used by many fashion bloggers these days as Ive seen them multiple times on Lookbook.  They are such a hit or I shall call it a trend instead of a fad. A lot of them are seriously to die for. To me I think they are easier to match than creepers because you need to have a certain right outfit if you want to wear creepers. But with these cut out boots, you will look absolutely chic, wearing them with any outfit of your choice. For example, flirty meets edgy!  

With the whole design, I see some inspirations from shoes that are required to be worn at private schools which are constantly black.  Preppy and punk are the two words to seriously describe them.  You can also wear them with your super cute school outfits. They will look great with larger framed glasses.   Preppy will always partner up with punk to complete a cute English punk outfit. 

Stay tuned for my outfit in these cutout shoes!

Keeping fit under the sun!

Welcome to another episode of Fashionable Fitness!
Hope you all enjoyed my yoga moda series!
Now run like the wind!
You know you need to find something to do in the summer and one of them is keeping fit.  Since its almost summer for all of us, its time to run in your chic neon outfits under the sun and look as bright. Today I went running with my Mom on the track across Bonifacio High Street  before having breakfast at Paul and below was what I wore when I went jogging. Who says you can't be fashionable when your exercising? You don't have to wear the typical plain clothes that are just one or two colors.  You can look cute as well jogging around Central Park, NYC or Venice Beach, Los Angeles. But be your your not alone.  Running is also one of the best exercising to make you stronger and is a fun thing to do with your friends and family! Im a health cautious person that I constantly eat fruits and keep fit 6 times a week. So fitness is one of the most important things on my list and I also gotta make sure I look chic and fabulous while doing any of my fitness activities. 

Wear a graphic tank top over a super cute support sports bra/yoga crop top and printed leggings or if your area is safe and if you see many people jog in crop tops, then you can just wear your half top (like mine above) with your printed leggings. But be sure you have a tank top in your car to cover up. Ive worn just a crop top and leggings for Zumba.   
I got my colorful active leggings from Forever 21 activewear that was only PHP 1095. They are really comfortable and not too tight. My knock out crop top is from Cotton On Body that was only PHP 799.  My graphic tank that says "Survival of the fittest" is from Cotton Active that was only PHP 400 on sale.   Find a really cute pouch to hook around your waist if you need to bring any money or your iPhone to listen to your music while running. 

If you want to wear short shorts while running, be sure they are tasteful and not too tight. Even if you are running keep the fashion statement of wearing a combination of loose and tight. Only do wear tight from top to bottom if you are doing yoga, pilates, dance and zumba.  

For your footwear, throw on some neon colored trainers that can last to look more girly. 

 This is my fitness outfit for the day!  My neon yellow top is from Cotton On active that I got on sale for only PHP 400. The active tanks there are the most affordable and unusual one so far. I always can't get enough of their work out wear.
My palm tress ombre active leggings are from Cotton On Body that I got for only PHP 1199. These are way to hard to find.
My neon pink trainers are from Planet Sports (brand: K-Swiss) that were only PHP 1,200 on sale. K-Swiss is the best affordable sports brand now a days.

This is my pouch (The only one I have that I can wear around my waist) It as a free gift from my 3 days of fashion camp at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising , Irvine, California.  I rarely use a fanny pack so, I never considered buying one. 

So now you have the complete stylish outfit for jogging!

Have fun and run with colors!,

NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago!

NYC, LA, Chicago! Those are the three cities I love the most! Those cities of fashion and fun lifestyles! Though Ive never been to Chicago, I heard its a fabulous city. Ive only been to NYC and LA multiple times and I am loving those stylish cities I dream to study fashion at someday or work in the future.  Im such a fashion addict that I really wanna study in a fashion capital and work back in my own country, Singapore. This is all I had time to throw on for a school meeting as the co-coordinator for the graduation fashion show. So Im glad Im finally graduating my advanced diploma and getting my full bachelors degree next year.

These are also my fashion tips on how to take it chic and easy. These clothes are so easy to throw on and can also make you look super chic. These are the perfect clothes to throw on for school. It will make you have the hottest clothes and still make you look best dressed.  Why not use some stylish stationary and not only have the hottest clothes? Look below at the notebook I used to take down notes today and also the fancy pen I got at Universal Studios Singapore. I had fun writing with the pen.

There are two ways to wear this outfit, either with a red hat and black tights or a black floppy fedora with red tights.

I am wearing this bowler hat from NAVA that was only PHP 200 on sale.

This white jersey dress is from River Island that I bought for only PHP 1095 on sale. After I bought this , when I saw the cover photo of Little Mix's Facebook page,  one of the members, Leigh Anne so happened to have this dress to. I won't be surprised since River Island is from London.  Im a big Little Mix fan! Asides from their music, I also love their edgy fashion sense.
They are so the Spice Girls of this generation!


I am wearing footless tights I got at Market! Market! at a deal of two for PHP 150. So I bought the red one along with it. 
I had to wear this tick hosiery today because this dress is unexpectedly pretty short and see thru.

Take it Chic and Easy with style!,

Barbara Bui Fall/Winter 2014-15 Backstage | Paris Fashion Week PFW | Fas...

Its beyond edgy for Barbara Bui!  The video above was filmed backstage at Paris Fashion week.   I love the coat they showed backstage with studs allover. You can totally wear that with a graphic beanie, stockings and boots to complete a stunningly edgy outfit. Id totally wear a coat like that if only I live in a cooler country.  This is by far my favorite collection at Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014-15. I love how the coats are paired with leather pants and leather skirts. Id love to get a new pair of leather leggings  or skinny jeans on sale for Fall/winter 2014-15. Its great seeing all the Fall/winter collections and at Paris, New York and London and I can't wait to see the Holiday 2014 collections at Philippine Fashion Week.

This collection has the most leather so far and the trends are an evolvement from last fall/winter. I also see the most studs in this collection especially this studded all over coat right below with leather pants and boots.   A studded all over jeans were also used in the collection with a sudden moto jacket. That was seriously creative. It almost reminds me of those studded hip hop snapbacks.  I also like the knee high boots used in this collection. They are not too flat and not too high. The slight platform makes them look absolutely edgy and they stand out more than any other boots.
I also love the coat way below with incredibly good prints paired with the leather mini skirt along with leather leggings and boots. I can see where my eye would move around the prints. I see some inspirations from shapes of leaves and art sculptures.
If you watch the show above, you get to also see a two toned moto jacket with lovely fur sleeves. That is one new creation Ive seen and Id wear that if I were a move star. There are ways to make fur look edgy. It won't make you look like you killed and animal. You can never go wrong with faux fur. Its a classic!  I also saw an exotic printed coat (snake print) that looked edgy and hot at the same time.  Exotic is the hit print for Fall/Winter 2014 as I can forecast right now after seeing them in many of the fall/winter 2014 collections.  I also recently saw an exotic coat in Gucci.
