Leather Weather!!!

Amp up your style and make a statement with leathers. Not only do they look great with anything, you can also rock them during rainy seasons or in the summer.

 The best thing about them is the idea that you can pair them with something fancy or casual. With this look, I'm leaning towards something elegant.

For a more elegant way, choose pumps or t strap heels and perfectly complete it with matching accessories.

 Carry a nice bag with you. It's a plus point for your outfit.

Don't be daunted with leather shorts. Try to pair them with bright colours or any different combinations.

Think Pink

For a fancy and elegant look, make light pink a wardrobe staple. I know light pink can be hard to pull off sometimes, but it’s time to reconsider. Give it a chance! Not only will you look fancy with light pink, it also compliments most skin tones.

Totally obsessing about this look, I super love this outfit especially this adorable shorts which I recently bought online.

Not only is this shorts lovely, it's also very comfortable to wear because of its design with two front zippers for wider leg space.

If you're having a hard time choosing the perfect match for pink, choose anachromatic colours. You can  never go wrong with it.

When you're in pink, Know no limits. Wear bold accessories or  an awesome eyewear.

My Most-Liked Songs!!!

There are lots of things that make life colourful. One of them is music. Music helps us escape from the reality we live in and without it, life is dull and boring. That is why I always have my iPhone or iPod with me, it's my buddy. I bring it everywhere I go. I listen to my playlist in the car, before I sleep and even when I shower. I just love music. Music inspires me all the time, it brings different emotions such  happiness, anger, fun or sadness. Depends what you put on your playlist though, but for me, I want to keep my playlist happy and fun.

In this blog post. I want to share five of my favourite songs in my playlist. These are the songs that i'll never get fed up with:

  First in my list is an upbeat indie folk song, "Riptide" by Vance Joy

  Innovative use of house influences, "It's Alright" by TEP NO. It's one of my favourite because it's laid back  but still  energising.

"Say My Name" by Odesza - very ballsy and catchy

"Lifted Up (1985)" by Passion Pit - colourful fusion of pop, funk and edm

Lastly, "Sweet Escape" by Alesso - a blissful mix of cheer synths

If it wasn't for Andre, my playlist would suck right now.

Collection Development to Finish Garment

In every collection there is always an inspiration, which is the first step in a design process and for my collection it is the "little black dress", the most essential thing to complete every woman's wardrobe. 

I wanted to make a filipino version of the little black, so I gathered clippings and made a mood board. 

Tip: Constant research is a must! Keep clippings and pegs for future use.

After conceptualising and gathering some pegs, the next step is to make a rough sketch. Don't finalise your work yet! There is always room for improvement, just keep on conceptualising and developing your work until you're satisfied.

After seeing my first sketch, I figured that I could still add something more to enhance my little black dress so I came up with another design. Sketch here, render that and viola! My filipino version of the LBD.

The final step in making a collection is constructing the actual garments, which is the hardest part of the process.

Actual Garments

We were asked to do 5 garments in a collection, but for this post, I'll only be showing three of my favourite designs.

Garment 1: laser cut bustier with see through skirt and a black tanga inside

Garment 2: See through bustier with laser cut on its center and a black soft tull layered skirt.

Garment 3: Laser cut top with mesh on the center and black skirt

My collection wouldn't be complete without these babies: modern terno sleeves paired with ankle strap shoes and black headband with a humongous flower.

Pastels Ensemble

For a fresh and soft girly look, having garments of sherbet shades and macaroon hues are perfect for your wardrobe.

When I recently bought my top from one of my favourite shops, I knew it would be exciting for me to wear! There's just something about this top that's undeniably cute. It's definitely a gotta-have.

For a pretty pastel shades ensembles and to completely express my demure look, I opted to pair my top with a pink skirt - I like how the skirt complemented my top. The whole outfit invoked a ladylike figure in me.

True that! Pastel colours can be tricky. You can only wear them on daytimes but nevertheless they are very fashionable and flattering.

Tough Girl Look

Today, I felt like shedding my good girl image. Nothing says tough action chic like a black leather top.

Outfit of the Day

A black leather top is the way to go. It's one of the things you need in your closet because it looks good with anything and everything.

You don't need an awesome ride to have a tough chic attitude just pair your leather top with studded leggings.

Look extra tough with a pair of chunky heels - I love how comfy and light my shoes are.

 The last piece to complete every outfit is CONFIDENCE!!!

Two Looks For My Mosaic Dress

One of the hardest projects that we have done in school is sewing and draping a mosaic dress. It's very hard and challenging. You really have to be meticulous in choosing the right print and texture of fabrics. Styling it on the other hand is a piece of cake. It's perfect for any event! It's very flattering and  easy to wear.

For today's post, I've posted two different looks for my Mosaic dress:

1. Dainty

Whenever I think about the word dainty, 1950's fashion always pops out of mind. 1950's was big on prints, which makes my mosaic dress a perfect example of a twisted modern version of the 1950's dress.

For more of a dainty feel, a light coloured blazer is a must.

Make sure to have a matching bag with the blazer.

2. Sporty

Who says dresses are only made for a dainty look? Well, I beg to disagree on that! Gone are the days where fashion is restricted. We are now living in a generation where we can mix and  match anything. Just like my mosaic dress and a baseball jacket dress for a sporty look.

For any girl who wants to go for a sporty look, make a baseball jacket your new best friend!
