"Give me the right shoes and I can conquer the world". 

Dr. Kong provides a full range of comfortable and healthy shoes from the toddler years, pre-school, teen, adolescent, adult to the elderly. There’s a shoe fit for every member of the family.They also offer insole and shoe accessories, school bags and laptop bags created to protect the spine and helps to reduce fatigue and back problems.

I love shoes and I believe that an outfit or a look cannot be complete without wearing the right shoes. Last Monday, May 27, 2013; I was invited at Dr. Kong Philippines event where I learned a lot about our feet, why choosing the right pair of shoes is very important and I learned that we should consider first our feet's comfort when buying shoes because it can cause a lot of serious health damage if you're wearing the wrong kind of shoes.

Dr. Kong was established in 1999 with stores all over Hong Kong, China, Malaysia and AustraliaIt is a concept store that was first to provide a “check & fit” foot examination and insole fitting service. This means they help the customer select the most appropriate foot care for their foot condition.

Dr. Kong Philippines Comfort and healthy shoes

I think this is the effect of reading too much street style websites and looking through what the attendees of Italy, New York and Paris fashion week wore. I'm taking my style to the next level and I want to stand out

I looove animals especially those furry, huge, and huggable types of animals (teddy bear like). So this fashion week I was inspired at those kind of animals specifically Pandas!, admit it! they are too cuuuuuute! ^_^, I want to have my very own panda and I remember I used to have many Panda stuffed toys when I was young but when I turned 11 I disposed it all *insert evil laugh here*.
For the love of Pandas, I've decided to wore this black and white faux fur at Michael Cinco's show (Philippine fashion week holiday 2013) and this outfit caught the attention of many people when I entered the venue "I'm not used to people staring at me for a long long long time" but who cares?! this is fashion week and I think it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.

The Great Mr. Panda

"Create your own visual style.. let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others".




People always asked me this question "what's your personal style" especially to blog feature interviews and I think I always lie to them whenever I answer this question of them, because I believe that (for me) you can't just stick to one category of style because we live in a world that evolve and changes so fast and I'm pretty sure a lot of us always based our style or should I say "what I'm going to wear" depending on our moods. 

These past few days, I've realized that I need to change my personal style, "hmmm not really change but improve it, take it to the next level, amaze and at the same time make people hate it, I want it to be scandalous". I want to try new things and experiment!. So from now on, I think it's time to say goodbye (for a while) to my preppy, boy next door look and clothes that you can see a lot of people would wear. I'm now into avant garde pieces and clothes that you don't normally see people wear, since I'm a blogger; my job is to entertain and inspire you guys with what I'm wearing.

I'm still young "17 but I will be turning 18 this May 29!! quite excited" and I want to explore, experiment and push myself!. To give you guys an idea what my new style is going to be, here's some photos from international designers lookbook and some runway photos.

I don't have a permanent personal style

I know things happen for a reason, hehe even I didn't get the chance to meet and see Sarah Jessica Parker in person when she visited our country "Philippines" for the opening of The SM Store at SM Aura Premier but you know things happen for a reason (haha paulet-ulet?). After a few days of SJP news and all the buzz; another influential person in the global fashion industry came here in the Philippines, she is the creative director of Marie Claire magazine, author, style icon and Project runway judge "gaaaah! I always watch project runway every week" and a style icon.. none other than the Nina Garcia!! 

I'm very thankful to JAG for giving me VIP invitation/pass for this fantastic fashion show. A lot of stylish people came, all dressed up just to see Nina Garcia and JAG latest collection. 

with Andre Chang "the walang kakabog at walang pwedeng kumabog sa mga outfits niya". Dapat pala sa JAG ko na lang sinuot yung PANDA outfit ko! hahahaha. 



My seatmate at the show..It's the celebrity mom Maricel Laxa!!. She is so nice and approachable. Before the show started we talked a lot about fashion! and she even asked me the question "what do you think are latest trends this holiday 2013" hahah syempre todo sagot naman ako sa question niya and we also talked about my hobbies especially "fashion blogging". 

Hey Maricel! you looked chic and sophisticated last night in that Rajo Laurel dress!.

JAG origins x Nina Garcia at Philippine fashion week holiday 2013

What a great way to end the first day of Philippine fashion Week 2013, the Michael Cinco closed the day 1 of Philippine fashion week with elegance and grandeur "truly world class". Seeing all these people lined up at the entrance of Cinco's show makes me more excited to see his sublime and phenomenal collection "I know it's awesome because I've already seen this collection at Dubai fashion forward (sa internet lang baka isipin niyo nagpunta pa ako ng Dubai! hahahah "he already presented this in Dubai together with other Filipino fashion designers".

Thank God, I didn't have to fall in line because it was soooooo damn looong! like 8:00 pa lang parang pila na ng MRT eh ang start ng show 9:30 pa, so I'm very thankful that I was one of the VIP guests in this show.

As I entered the venue, I almost died because all the people were staring at me. I don't know if they're amazed, mad or just can't take off their eyes away with what I'm wearing fyi Panda and Chanel fall 2010 is my inspiration in this outfit. Will post an outfit post soon!.

Michael Cinco's theatrical and Russian inspired opulence at Philippine fashion week

I know my life is going to be bumpy so I always buckle up. 

So Philippine fashion week "Day 1" starts now and I'm excited to witness Michael Cinco's phenomenal and world class designs later 9:30 p.m at SMX Convention Center also I'm excited to see my friends there in their most stylish outfits. I know you guys are excited too see what will I wear for tonight's show, me too I'm quite excited to wear it! hahaha basta I know it will be puuuuuuuurtastic! hahahah.

For today's outfit post I'm feeling kinda smart corporate "ish" by mixing corporate pieces together with casual pieces. I think shorts can be considered smart looking and you can still look professional in shorts just be sure its not board shorts, bulky cargos and short shorts and also you should consider the fit of your shorts, it should be well fitted/tailored so that you can look slick, well groomed and smart. .

Bonifacio High Street "Style Origin" Part 1

I know you guys want more of this video outfit post, so I'm giving you another one. Just in case you're wondering, Neil Patrick "my new buddy/partner in crime" is the one who took this video and also the last one and he is also responsible in taking my outfit shots but in return I also do the same for him "so it's a win win for both party, hahaha LOL". Thanks bro!. 




For today's outfit post, I decided to wear this gorgeous white leather jacket from Giuliano Fujiwara; he is a Japanese designer and he established his brand in 1996 in Milan to symbolize a union between Japanese Minimalist design and outstanding workmanship. You must see his designs especially the jackets in his fall/winter 2013 RTW collection! "gaaaaaaah, they're too die for". 

From now on, I will keep my denim jackets and give them a long long long break because I think denim jackets became too overrated especially in this times/generation, para maiba naman ilabas ang white leather jacket! hahaah seriously Grease (movie) is one of my inspirations in this look hahaha just love watching that movie and also the part 2 of it.

Finally!. Here's an outfit inspirations/ideas blog post guys! I know y'all missed this kind of blog post so I'm bringing it back again. I think the last time I did this kind of post is way back 2011 pa ata (the days where I don't know what to blog about and how I want my blog to be). So I'm just happy doing this kind of post again with a much better vision.
In this post I'm going to show you guys how to rock this season's new/fresh trend; the "Ethnic trend". Designers/brands like Missoni, E. tautz, Jean Paul Gaultier, Bottega Veneta and Yohji Yamamoto showcased this trend in their SS13 collection. Personally I think this is totally different from the Aztec trend because with this trend we are taking inspirations from different cultures such as Native Americans, India, the far east, tribes etc. Earth tone colors, rough textures, different kinds of prints, patterns and loose pants are the key pieces to achieve this trend.

So here's some outfit ideas on how can you rock this trend without looking like you're wearing a costume. 

Marc by Marc Jacobs shirt/Topman shorts/Bottega Veneta shoes/Cutler and Gross Sunglasses/multi aztec woven belt.

Try playing with different kind of earth tone colors just like what I did on this look. I paired this cool Marc by Marc Jacobs shirt to this Topman shorts plus I added this aztec woven belt for that extra ethnic umf! and this gorgeous Bottega Veneta leather slippers.

Bread Story, SM San Lazaro Branch. 

Got the chance to visit and taste Bread Story's tasty breads last Wednesday. To be honest this was the first time I heard about Bread Story "the day we visited their store, haha". French baker and Bread talk are the stores I only know that cater/serves good tasting breads, eh kasi itong dalawa lang naman lagi ang makikita mo sa mga malls but now I know Bread Story, so tatlong store na ang alam ko. hahahha!

From Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Bread Story was brought to the Philippines by 3W Foods and Drinks, Inc. on February 10, 2012 at the basement of SM South mall, Las PiƱas City. Baking Breads from scratch, it officially launched in February 17, 2012. From wide array of breads, cakes, you can savor the aroma of freshly baked breads when you pass by our door. You won’t resist trying our breads and when you do, you’ll be back for more.

So last Wednesday, May 1 (Labor day) I was at SM San Lazaro to cover their event Job Fair 2013 and I together with my fellow bloggers got the privilege to meet the big guys behind SM San Lazaro "you know the mall manager, head marketing, digital marketing , stuff like that". It was a fun event not just for the applicants but also for us bloggers.

They are doing this Job Fair I think for almost 6 years together in partnership with (DOLE) Department of Labor and Employement and also (PESO) Public Employment Services Office. A whopping 6,000 job positions for unemployed Filipinos, wow! this job fair is really a great opportunity for them and in fact according to Ms. Lea Casamayor (SM San Lazaro Mall Manager) based on the previous job fairs around 10 to 15% of the registered applicants get hired on the spot and every year it gets higher and higher.

I was kinda late when I arrived at the mall, because our call time is 10 am and you know that I'm not a morning person. hahaha

All excited to find their dream job!
