but hell no, this shoot isn’t possible without the team I toiled with.
Pardon me for getting sidetracked at the very beginning of this post, but I’d just like to dwell on the fact that writing isn’t really my forte, a fact that may be obvious in this visual heavy, yet “short & sweet texted” entry. Well, at least I’m good at inventing these non existent “phrases” to mask my not so wide vocabulary. I can write, but between other things I can do, it’s not exactly my specialty. Consider this a warning, though I do have high hopes for the visuals of this entry.
Now back to the reason for this post.
I don’t know if I’ve already mentioned this, but music is definitely one of my biggest inspiration when it comes to my style.
My Heels story + Contest

I wasn’t always into heels this much. About a year ago, I remember being more of a sneaker (or any flat shoes for that matter) kind of girl. I would immediately brush off the idea of wearing heels when it was suggested and would only give in if there was a super important formal event I needed to attend.
Fast forward to now, I sometimes find myself wearing heels almost everyday in a week. Even if it’s just a casual window shopping sesh at the mall, or a quick dinner date with Miguel after work, I would still opt for heels. They might be torture, but if you find a great pair with just the right height and fit, you’ll be hooked.
Heels, for me, can put some fancy or edgy (depending on what kind of heels) vibe in any outfit. Imagine a plain white shirt with light denim jeans. Imagine it being paired with sneakers, versus being paired with heels. It gives off a completely different look. I’m not saying sneakers aren’t cool, they are and I love them but if you want a more put together, #GirlBoss look, heels are your bestfriend.
CHARLES & KEITH is definitely one of my favorite brands when I’m on the look out for new heels and bags to match with them. They got all sorts to fit every personality, I definitely found several pieces that spoke to me and thus, another haul.

Spring is here! In Philippine context, that means we say bye to our cloudy afternoons and chilly nights, and say hello to the blistering midday heat, 6:30 PM sunsets, and humid nights that got us sweating balls.
I’ve been fascinated with the Autumn/Winter line the local stores have been releasing. The warm camels and maroons, luxurious suede and other cozy materials. However with our current high temperature days ahead, I think wearing the latter would be self-torture. So I paid a visit to one of my favorite stores, Forever 21, and hauled a lot from their light pastel clothing and denim collection… the perfect pair for a bright sunny day.
