Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone With The Bright And Bold Yellow!!!

 For a girl who loves black, Yellow can sometimes be daunting. It's not something that you typically see everyone is wearing, but today I'm stepping out of my comfort zone by wearing a bright and bold yellow dress and it's unexpectedly flattering!!!

 Looking like a bumblebee is one of my legitimate concerns, but keeping it simple and knowing the right colours that go well with it are really helpful.

For me, an outfit's back details are just as important as the front!!!

I like to keep my outfit interesting by adding accessories such as sunglasses with blings and colourful earrings.

This is how I want to wear my yellow; matching it with a hint of gray.

Opt for white shoes, they can make you elegant to any outfit.

Dare to Wear a Bustier In a Casual Way

Dare to wear a sexy yet classy piece of fashion staple: Bustier top! I know a bustier top can be daunting and tricky to wear sometimes, but you just got to step out of your comfort zone and try different ways to rock this fashion staple.

What I love about this top is that I can wear it anywhere, Its not too formal nor too casual and it's peplum, which is one of my favourite trends.

Peplum makes you feel extra feminine

 Think casual without having to bare a lot of skin by wearing a long shorts or jeans. This is also a sexy way to rock this trendy piece.

 Throw on a t strap heels to make you feel feminine and daring.

Don't be dull and boring!!! Add life to your outfit by pairing your plain top with colourful shoes.

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.
