[Outfit Post] ; I Found Myself in Wonderland

As I am writing this post, I can feel the heat of the Sun drilling its way into the pores of our roof. My eyebrows are curled into the middle of my forehead and sweat is trickling down my cheeks. It is extremely hot, and if it is not that horrible enough, my temper is likewise rising. I am pissed and I will be honest in this blog post. The past week has been stressful, to the extent that I couldn't find the words to define it. Much less this week, I had encountered yet another series of aggravating circumstances. These events are beginning to affect my mood, and it is not pleasant, to say the least. I feel down and spinning around so I was wondering as well if this particular outfit post would be able to justify my present predicament, given that I was exploding in colors in this ensemble. Paradoxical is it?

Then again, as I am intently reviewing every detail of my outfit, I am realizing that there is actually no Paradox at all. This will always be who I am. Somebody who is always happy, loud and bright, no matter how dark the clouds are, I will always be wearing something dazzling because I am a person who lives to smile and make people smile. I'm starting to feel better now lol

For a fact, you just cannot please everyone. In the end, there will always be people and events who will try to tear you up. But I can only be torn up if I let them. So why would I? I have my family, an amazing boyfriend, and a crazy bunch of friends who are here to stay. Most especially, I am doing the things I am most passionate about. So I guess I will just stay happy and let them turn green with envy for all they want. Haters gonna hate *wink* 

Ciao gals! :)

[Outfit Post] ; Mama, I Just Killed a Man

Hello dear beautiful people! Pardon my sudden and extended absence from the blogosphere as I had to attend to (too many) problems. Nevertheless, I am more than pleased to be back posing in front of my good camera and writing again. On a different note, let me inform you that I will soon be migrating my blog to my very own domain, after almost 2 years. I believe it is a good step to take although I still have some degrees of anxiety about what-nots, being a first timer. Then again, as I have an IT genius for a brother, I know I am in good hands. I do hope you will watch out for it! 

So moving on to this outfit I'm wearing for my "come back". One of the trends I am very much unaquainted with is the "Boho/Bohemian" style. Despite the fact that I am quite fond of fringed leather bags, straw/fedora hats and crochet/knitted tops, I never attempted to wear them altogether and flaunt a full Bohemian look. I honestly don't know why I have evaded it for long but I guess this is the time to give it a try. I was looking for chiffon off shoulder tops for the longest time and though I have not really acquired one, or the style that I had been eyeing since, I got myself this sheer top filled with cut outs in all the right places. I matched it with this pair of denim shorts, which, by the way, is the shortest pair I will ever have in my lifetime. You may think it's not even thaaat short like jean cut-offs but my dad will definitely throw me out of the house if it gets any shorter than this.

I wish I have brown lace up booties, I bet it would look perfect in this outfit. But then, let us try to make do with what we have so instead, I wore this black ankle booties to inject edginess in this courageous Bohemian attempt that actually turned to a modern hippie. LOL! What do you think?

If you will notice, both these sandals and fringed bag had also been worn in this post. It's been a couple of years and I must say, both had served me well and now they are crumbling. I guess I will have to abuse them a little more before I finally lay them to rest.

Outfit Post ; Plum and Berry Shortcake ♡♡

Every  time  I  wear  solid-colored tops and bottoms, especially pastels, I immediately  think of  food. Not  just food, but a cozy cafe adorned with everything  beautiful  and  sweet! 


Cream and Gold canopy curtains, seats clothed in baby Pink and Mint Green quilted cushions, slices of blueberry cheesecake and Mochi Ice Cream in pistachio and caramel flavors and hot fudge chocolate! 

I think I can also smell the freshly baked golden gingerbread. Oh..My..Gosh. I'm so hungry right now I can almost taste this Lavender top and candy necklace! 

They're too yummy looking you can think of nibbling  on it lol I'm just so happy that Summer is officially here! Well, it's  been quite hot for the last 2 weeks or so but right now, I'm actually listing the agenda of our family excursion 2 weeks from now, so this is when my Summer officially starts! I'm super excited! Is anybody celebrating Summer now as well? Tell us about it!

Outfit Post ; Scarlet Dreams

People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing you are the beholder.
~Salma Hayek

I  remember  when  I  was in grade school until high school, I was so thin, tall  and  dark  skinned  that  I was most of the time, the subject of my schoolmates'  jokes,  calling  me  names  of  all sort. It made made me quite insecure and conscious of my looks. Anyway, that was a long time ago and my heart has learned to forgive. Who would have thought that that ugly duckling from back then is now a fashion blogger who flaunts cropped tops and mini skirts? :)

So for today's post, I am wearing another cropped top and this is also from the same shop featured in last week's post. This kind of cropped top is selling like pancakes here in the Philippines at this time. They call it the Megan Top because it was first seen worn by Miss World 2013 Megan Young in one of her OOTDs. The sexy neckline of the top has caused our local Instagram shops to create their respective versions of the Megan Top and of course, I had to get one for myself in Red! 

I had been thinking what kind of bottoms would go well with this cropped top when I suddenly remembered that I still have this 17 year old fiery red skirt. Yes you read that right! This very elegant pleated lace midi skirt has been in my closet for that long. It was my mom and dad's Christmas gift to me when I was in the fourth grade and since I'm still sporting a 24 inch waistline, it still fits! I will never have the heart to throw or sell this lovely piece, ever! And look, doesn't it look so gorgeous when paired with this Megan Top? I think it's a sexy and classy combo. Red is such a powerful color! Wear both top and skirt in Red and all eyes will definitely be on you! Or at least, a pair of eyes will be on you lol.

What do you think of this outfit? Did you like it? ^^ Tell me what you think! I'd love to hear from you :)

Outfit Post : White and Bright

A great figure or physique is nice, 
but it's self-confidence that makes someone really sexy.
~Vivica Fox

Hi gals! A good, happy, sweaty, hot afternoon to you from scorching Manila! Sorry if I had been blogging about Summer more frequently lately. I know most of you are still on your way to Spring, but since we don't have that here in the tropics, we're fast forwarding to Summer! So I'm pretty sure you all can guess what this outfit post is about. What outfit can be more fitting to beat the heat? Cropped Tops and Shorts, in white!

So for this Summer 2014, cute summer outfit is not just cute, but sexy as well. I seldom show off some skin in my posts (unless of course I was wearing swimwear) because I'm that shy lol. But thanks to Fashion Trends Online PH of Instagram for sending over these off-shoulder cropped top and a matching origami shorts. These pieces are too pretty and sexy not to flaunt! To somehow cover my self-proclaimed shyness, I decided to cover up with a Pink floral kimono that I've got over a year ago. 

Before I started the shoot, I was in deep thought: "Will I be able to pull off this cropped top?". Even my mom was intently watching me, which made it all the more awkward. Then again, I convinced myself that this shoot would only take 5 minutes, max. After the first minute, I recovered my self confidence. Sexiness is not about the amount of skin you need to show, or how high the cut of the top is or how short your bottoms were. It's about being yourself and being confident that radiates the sexiness of the person within. Still, thanks to my long legs (that go on forever, as one of my readers said), I felt even sexier! lol. 

By the way, do you recognize this top? It's actually the same top I wore for the first outfit in this post! While this floral kimono was first featured in this post when she was still on my shopping cart. Can you imagine that after more than one year, this was the first time I wore it? :p #justsaying

So what do you think of wearing white on white for Summer? Or white and white plus pink floral? I hope you liked this post! Tell me what you think, I'd love to hear from you :)

"Peach perfect!" ; My 5 Ways to Wear Chiffon Palazzo Pants

Hi  Gals!  How are you all doing? Excited for Spring? Summer? Me, I am very much  looking forward  to the heat so that I can finally bring out all my sheer  tops  and  corsets  and  tank tops  and chiffon palazzo pants! Eep, speaking of chiffon palazzo pants (and I know you saw this coming), I have just bought my first ever palazzo around two weeks ago.  Actually, I bought it  online  thinking  it was a maxi skirt in the stock photo. But the truth was, I had been scouting for peach palazzo pants in chiffon for the longest time and I am completely aware that such task is quite daunting, given that I'm  looking  for  specifics such as the fabric and the color and the style etc.  So  when  I  saw  this  peach  "maxi  skirt"  on Joshan Online Shop's collection, I  did not bother think twice and ordered it right away. I got the  item the following day and much to my blissful surprise, it turned out to  be  the  palazzo  pants  of my dreams! The universe is just so powerful #GotToBelieve

So  anyway,  if  you ask me, I rarely and I mean very rarely do I see girls wearing  palazzo  pants.  You  see circle  skirts  and  maxis  and  shorts everywhere  but these pretty culottes very seldom take the lime light don't you  think?  So  for  today's  post,  here's  a special "My 5 Ways to Wear" edition to give you gals a little idea what to wear these palazzos with.

First Look: Wearing Palazzo Pants at the streets/ malls/ parks etc :

The  casual white cropped top blended well with the flowy fabric giving the ensemble  that  perfect  mix  of laid-back and chic. How to wear the palazzo pants in the mall? This is how! Well if you want, sans the heels lol.

Second Look: Wearing Palazzo Pants at the beach:

What could be more summery than a floral bustier and peach bottoms in sheer? Throw in that fedora hat and stack up an arm party on and you can join the beach party!

Fedora Hat ; Random

Third Look: Wearing Palazzo Pants as Evening Wear:

What do you think of mixing solid black with dainty peach? The flowy fabric gives a great balance to the grungy feel of the top. I'm not sure but I actually liked this one haha! By the way, this cold-shoulders top is actually a DIY which is very simple to make. Nonetheless, I'll be posting the pseudo-tutorial very soon.

Long Sleeved Top: thrifted

Fourth Look: Wearing Palazzo Pants to Party:

You will definitely turn heads in this eye-catching sequined silver top! This is actually a dress worn as top, quite versatile this beauty isn't she? If it weren't for the sequins, the loose top and loose bottom somehow gives off a Bohemian Vibe! Chiffon Pants in Boho Style spells sexy!

Fifth Look: Wearing Palazzo Pants to Formal Gatherings:

If you would ask me, I honestly wouldn't attend formal gatherings wearing pants. Well that's just me. I will definitely be on a dress or top plus skirt combination, but pants? And by that I'm referring to slacks. But make the pants Peach in flowy fabric and I will readily put it on. And what is the more common match to chiffon bottoms? Lacy tops! Probably due to the same dainty look and feel that chiffon and lace have that they make a great combo perfect for formal occasions such as weddings. When my mom saw me wearing this, she asked me whether I was having a dress rehearsal to a wedding and that I might stand out instead of the bride. Haha! Well, I do agree that this palazzo pants is definitely a statement!

I can still think of more ways to wear these lovely bottoms and the list goes on. All you need is just your little creative bone and a dash of confidence and you're good to go! I am quite happy with these pants, and I love the universe for helping me find them. Thank you as well to Joshan Online Shop, gawd you have no idea how happy I am! 

I hope you liked this post! Tell me what you think girls ^_^

Style Files: Goo Hara of KARA

Hi gals! If you can recall, I have previously featured Nicole Jung of KARA's personal style in this post. Today, Goo Hara of the same top female K-Pop group KARA shall be under The Fabulous Geek's limelight on Style  Files.  I  am  actually  planning to feature all KARA members  and their individual styles one by one, given that I am an avid fan of K-POP  and  K-fashion  at  that.  Well,  at this point in time, who doesn't listen to K-POP or doesn't shop at Asian Wholesale sites? lol.

For  those  who  are  not  quite  familiar with KARA's HARA, (I love saying that), she is, nonetheless, the richest Female K-POP Idol at this time. She likewise  holds  the  title  of  the  Idol  with  the  smallest (read: epic) waistline of all at a mere 22 inches. Barbie, is that you?

My goodness! And I thought my 24 inch waistline is already sexy! lol
So she sings like a song  bird,  she  dances with the grace of the clouds, she act(ed) with Lee Min  Ho (OMG), she graced the Korean Vogue Magazine for 2013 along with dozens of other high street fashion magazines, and she owns her own company. Her style is  unfathomable,  unpredictable:  elegant,  spunky,  sexy,  dainty, she is versatile  in  style  and  in talent. Upon researching more about this Hara girl,  I was astounded how little I have known about her style. She dresses so  well and she looks very pretty and sweet in everything! Be it in casual airport  clothes  or  in  extravagant  dresses  on  the red carpet or press conferences,  Hara carries herself well, with much confidence and intellect that  outright  radiates  within her petite and innocent frame. Allow me to share  to  you  the  versatility  of her fashion. Credits to Vogue Girl Magazine Korea 2013 and Cosmopolitan:
