Pharrell Williams: Frontin’ As My Style Inspiration
i have always been a fan of Pharrell Williams and i could declare my love for him and his work (really! haha.). i consider him a Renaissance Man because he has proven himself an artist even outside music. he continues to push the boundaries of his talents because aside from being a Grammy Award Winning producer, he is also a singer, songwriter, musician, rapper, fashion designer, entrepreneur, author, and so on! phew! and can you believe he just turned 40?!? i wish i could look and be as cool as him when i turn 40!
i consider Pharrell as one my style icons and inspirations because he is very experimental with his style, just like with his work. he isn’t afraid to get creative with his outfits! Pharrell recently modeled for a clothing line he co-owns, Billionaire Boys Club, together with pieces from another clothing line named BAPE. i’d like to share with you the photos i found online because this is another showcase of his superb personal style. i doubt that he needed a stylist for this shoot! who says you can’t model clothes like this at 40? not Pharrell! he is after all, considered one of the Best Dressed Men in America.
maybe i should post Pharrell-inspired outfits soon? in the meantime, here i am having fun in Angkor What? (a bar in Cambodia) last year, wearing a Pharrell Williams tank top i bought in Bangkok. it’s now one of my most overused clothing pieces. you don’t have to ask why. haha!shout out to MY Renaissance Man and Style Icon, Pharrell Williams! i hope i meet you one day (dreaming…)! :)
Layering for HK’s Cool Weather
last January, my mom, aunts, and i had a trip to Hong Kong. although i’m itching to post a couple of photos from that trip, let me start with an outfit post during one of our days there. i hope you don’t mind! hehe.Zara leather jacket, F&H top, Uniqlo leggings, Nike legwarmers, Zara boots, H&M sling bag, Baguio beanie, gifted scarf and Old Navy shopper’s bag
the summer heat is intense so i kind of miss dressing up for Hong Kong’s cool weather. oh well! gotta be thankful for what we have right? hehe.

Derek Ramsay for Motorcycle Magazine May 2012
better late than never! here are photos from Derek Ramsay’s feature (that Bianca and I styled) in Motorcycle Magazine last May 2012. thank you Bianca and Motorcycle Magazine! you could barely see it, but i designed Derek’s white v-neck shirt with black piping. thanks Boardwalk (the gray and dark blue jeans he’s wearing here are from Boardwalk)!Photography: Cyrus Panganiban
Stylist: Bianca Cordero
Associate Stylist: Nasia Cammayo
top used as dress from BKK, skirt from SG, Zara jacket, Topshop boots, DKNY shades, Marc Ecko watch, and studded bracelets from BKK
before anything else, this is a late outfit post from last year! hehe. i wanted to play down the colors of my outfit so i wore it with my army green jacket. again, this is my technique of making my outfit not “too girly” by adding boyish pieces like the jacket, my dad’s old shades, and boots. the top is actually a short dress that i’ve already worn previously. i wanted to wear it in a different way so i tucked it in my pleated skirt.
i love wearing boots with skirts or dresses so this was an instant match. those boots are so overused but it just goes with almost anything in my closet! oh how i truly love wearing boots! i easily get attracted to boots of various shapes and colors. who doesn’t? ;)
i urge you to wear boots with your skirts and dresses often! also try “breaking” a colorful outfit by adding darker colored pieces.

My Top 5 Best Dressed from the 2013 Oscars
even if almost everyone has already given their Best Dressed lists from the Oscars, i shall still share my Top 5 Best Dressed women from that glorious event. better late than never, right?
my Top 1 is the forever young and alluring, Charlize Theron. she even looks better and younger than the way younger actresses there! no fair. haha! and that cropped ‘do went well with her entire look! when i saw her on the red carpet, i was so stunned! she looked so divine and elegant. now that’s a WOW factor. she was wearing a Dior Haute Couture gown.my Top 2 is the uber cool Oscars Best Actress awardee, J Law! i guess her promising talent comes with style, don’t you think? i’ve read that she has hired Rachel Zoe to be her stylist and you can’t go wrong with that decision! like Charlize, she also wore a Dior Haute Couture gown that was such a winning choice! i also loved her “backlace”. a new trend will start; just wait and see.my Top 3 is the talented and versatile Oscars Best Supporting Actress awardee, Anne Hathaway. i really don’t understand why a lot are hating on her and what she wore during the Oscars. she deserved all her awards and it really showed in her portrayal of Fantine. i remember doubting her as Catwoman but i was surprised on how well she did it. it was her own version yet she still stayed true to the character’s slyness and sexiness. anyway, going back to her Oscars gown, she wore Prada. many didn’t like it but i feel it was a bold choice. and please, those weren’t her nipples showing, that’s just how the light hit the bust darts of her gown. also, it was reminiscent of 90s gown styles in a positive way, of course. what a great way to also break a style rule by wearing a princess necklace with a halter cut gown! oh, and i also loved the gown change in her Les Miserables production number! that was Giorgio Armani. i feel it kind of upstaged her Oscars gown but still, she took the risk! now that’s versatility. my Top 4 choice is one of the Best Actress nominees, Jessica Chastain. what a gorgeous woman with that body to match! her look had a touch of old Hollywood. the dress highlighted her curves and she didn’t have to wear much jewelry as her dress already sparkled on the red carpet. she wore Armani Prive.my Top 5 is the forever charming, Jennifer Garner! she wore a plum Gucci gown that showed her toned arms and svelte body even after having three kids (note to self: be physically fit forever!). i loved the ruffles at the back of her gown. they were dramatic and served as an update to the usual serpentina gown. her jewelry and clutch matched the entire look. now that’s a charm!it really is a fashion feast during awards season. everybody looks so damn gorgeous and you are just so inspired with what everyone is wearing. anyway, that wraps up my Top 5 Best Dressed from this year’s Oscars! how i wish i could get to style a Hollywood celebrity for the Oscars and choose among all those beautiful designer gowns, shoes, clutches, and jewelry! how about you (hey, anyone is free to dream! haha!)? who were your picks that night?

Cambodia June 2012: Part 3
yes my friends, this is the third and last part of my Cambodia trip last year in June (time to move on to a new topic! hehe.). our last day was dedicated to making the most out of our hotel’s amenities, enjoy the nearby places, eat at a nice restaurant or cafe, and do some last-minute shopping.
despite sleeping late the previous night, we made sure we didn’t party too much so we could wake up early just in time for the breakfast buffet.some of us took a dip in the pool afterwards. talk about maximizing time!before having our lunch out, we already had to fix our things and pack to avoid any “Home Alone” (movie) stress in preparing for our flight back. we also had to say goodbye to our lovely villa, the hotel, and take as many photos as we want while still in the area.a comfortable outfit will always be a travel essential! leave the fussy outfits at home and make sure to pack clothes that are light and suitable to the country’s weather and your activities while there. (wearing a Uniqlo tank, Cotton On harems, Chucks, and H&M bag)we went back to Pub Street to savor the last hours of our stay. we had lunch at The Red Piano, a restaurant where Angelina Jolie and her Tomb Raider crew frequented while filming the movie. the interiors gave off a cool vibe that i couldn’t help but take photos of. i didn’t want to order a hefty meal as i was still full from breakfast, so i just went with their chicken salad sandwich buns. i believe they were just right for my full stomach. haha! after lunch, my friends and i made our last minute purchases in the market and had coffee and snacks at Le Grand Cafe. we did our best in making the most of our last day and i was pretty much satisfied with how it went. i will miss Cambodia!how i wish our trip were longer because i’m sure we still haven’t seen a lot during our stay. Cambodia was quite the experience and i’d always want to say that when visiting other countries or cities. my friends and i are looking forward to our next trip and we’re hoping in a country we all haven’t been to so that we could discover and marvel as a group! haha. traveling will always be a dream and i’m so happy to be going places i thought i’d never be in. anyway, why not book your ticket to Cambodia now and have your own experience of it, ‘eh?
Cambodia June 2012: Part 2
it’s time to work on my post backlog! do you still remember the first post on my June Cambodia trip months ago? if there’s a part 1, there should be a part 2 and/or 3 right? haha. here it is!
my friends and i dedicated our third day to of course, the temples! first stop, the breathtaking Angkor Wat!i honestly felt like i was in a dream because it felt so surreal to be in such a historical place. walking along the hallways and doors of Angkor Wat felt like stepping in a time machine. my friends and i even had a breakfast (we went there extra early) picnic along the steps of one of the many corners of the temple!aside from marveling at the entire place, we also got crazy with posing for our cameras! i actually enjoyed that! hehe. that’s one tip i can suggest to travel bugs- do a TON of crazy poses while having your photos taken in tourist spots!i couldn’t help but remember Ancient Aliens as i observed and admired the structures and details of the Angkor Wat. any fans of the show, reading? hehe.sadly, my camera’s battery died as soon as we got to Ta Prohm temple, so i used my phone instead. Ta Prohm is where parts of the movie, Tomb Raider, was shot! what’s spectacular about the temple is that tree vines and roots have already become part of its structure. i did feel that “tomb raider” in me as we visited one temple from another. we still visited the nearby temples even if some of my friends were already tired and gave up on all the walking. i was also feeling exhausted but i didn’t want to give up as it’s not everyday that you get to discover places such as these. it was the travel bug’s fighting spirit in me that kept me going! haha.it was indeed our “temple day” as we ended up having dinner and drinks at Temple in Pub Street! how apt, right? we also checked out Angkor What? bar just across us since it was packed and seemed fun to party in. it was such a fun night that people were already dancing in the streets; it was literally a street party! my friends and i couldn’t help but join in! ending this post with a pic that best describes how i felt that night! hahaha!stay tuned for the last part of this trip! :)
A Selection from 2012
everyday i thank the Lord for his continuous love in the form of blessings. 2012 was no different from the previous years because He did not stop loving and blessing me. it was a year of ups and downs, surprises, changes, opportunities, challenges, discoveries, and new memories. in times that i worried a lot, God surprised me. in times i lost hope, He found a way to encourage me. 2012 may not have been a perfect (or almost perfect) year but i know i am grateful for it.
it’s impossible to fully describe or show you how 2012 has been for me, so instead of blabbing and drowning you with numerous photos, i’m posting 12 memorable photos (1 photo from each month) from last year instead. mind you, it was hard to choose!
January - I got to style THE Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago for People Asia magazine’s People of the Year issue (Dec. ‘11-Jan. ‘12)!February - I was invited to give a talk on my work as a Fashion Stylist in the school where I studied from Prep until High School, Assumption Antipolo!March - I got to visit Bangkok again and have all the iced coffee, Tom Yum, and shopping I could want! Or almost? Haha.April - My Mom, brothers, and I spent Holy Week again with my Dad (minus Ate) in Singapore and just enjoyed our time together. Plus, we got to watch Wicked!May - Sam, one of my good friends, held her wedding in Acuatico. What a beautiful bride, right?June - It’s my barkada and I’s first ever international trip together in a country we all haven’t been to, Cambodia!July - I got to watch one of my favorite artists, Nicki Minaj, LIVE in concert! Woohoo!August/September - My first ever beauty editorial comes out in People Asia magazine’s August-September 2012 issue!October - I got to style young beauty queen, Nicole Ronquillo, for the SGEN pageant held in Southville School (Alabang) and she won “Best in Talent” and placed as 4th Runner-up!November - Boracay and I meet again!December - I conceptualized and styled for some holiday store window displays including Big and Small Co.’s branch in Bonifacio High Street.okay, i cheated on August and September by just having one photo! i guess i felt it was proper since the editorial was good for two months. hehe!
with that, i thank 2012 and bid it goodbye because there’s now 2013 to look forward to! i wish to continue fighting (superhero style, maybe?) for my dreams and just have a blessed and fulfilling 2013! :)
