Runway Review

Runway Review
I miss doing runway reviews, and also writing about what is new in fashion and beauty. So for today’s post, I am going to share with you the newest collaboration of fashion designer Alexander Wang and retail brand, H&M. Alexander Wang’s is known for minimal aesthetic designs in clothing, shoes and bags. While H&M is a known RTW brand and recently a newly open branch was launched in SM Megamall. It is an interesting collaboration that we shouldn’t miss out. So if you are excited as much as I do read on! Let me take you to a virtual runway experience.

This look is very couture yet the pieces used are for RTW. Perfect for Fall/Winter season
h1
A pair of boots is a star for this collaboration. This sporty look is perfect for gym sessions or simply breaking some sweat.
h2
Very high fashion! This time another look for a pair of ankle high boots!
h4
Leggings are also one of the items that we should not miss out.
h5
The shorts are perfect for cycling and sports bra also as well. The jacket is suitable for the rainy season here in Manila.
h6
The fiercest look!
h7
Those leggings are sooo chic!!
Overall Runway Review: 8/10
The clothing pieces speaks Alexander Wang’s known minimalism style. But I notice it has androgynous spice that makes it more urban. However each clothing is wearable, but it looks couture once the pieces are worn together in the runway

Clutched In+ Sbaam

Clutch is a bag must have for women and aside from its functionality it is also stylish. Clutches have different types and designs, in the one I am wearing it has red patterns that compliments my red blazer. Actually this is the only clutch that I have so far but this is very useful. So I decided to look for another clutch with a different design and style.

Interview

Interviews are mandatory especially in getting a job position. We always have to think what we should wear to look formal yet at the same time stylish. Here is my quick outfit look tip for you guys! Wear something different from the usual blazer, pencil skirt/trousers and etc. Instead spice up your look with a hint of your personality in it. For instance in my look my personality is feminine yet tough. So what I wore are pastel pink collared top and printed pencil skirt. Yes what I am wearing is still normal for a job interview. But I added spice through the print on my skirt and the pastel color of my top. Another tip! I heard that hiring mangers prefer applicants in cool colors so pastels are your best bet.

Dear Jeans

Dear Jeans thank you for making our lives easier when it comes to dressing up. We owed jeans big time for being our clothing savior. When we can’t think of anything to wear. It is functional and versatile to wear you can easily pair jeans will almost anything. No wonder jeans are truly an investment and most of us owns even at least one pair of jeans. I realize you can also accessorize a pair of jeans with any way you want. You can add cuffs, two necklaces, rings or even a pair of earrings. When it comes to shoes, sandals are the best pair to go with a jeans for an easygoing vibe. Like the sandals I am wearing from Punk Berry.

Fashion Confidence Boosters

Untitled #303
I don’t want this blog to be just my personal style documentary. So I wanted to share something beyond clothing, fashion and styling. I wanted to tackle how confidence will help us in the long run. No one has infinite supply of confidence everyday. There are times that we feel confident about ourselves and there are times that we don’t feel confident about ourselves. Read on how to embrace our inner greatness and how confidence helped me out in so many ways. I am also like any other people in this world, I also went through awkward days and I went through the days I don’t feel great about myself. I am hoping you will learn a thing or a bit from this!

Own Your Body Love It All
Yes love yourself and you are body and everything about you. Everyone are beautiful in their own way it is beyond what the eyes see. It is how the person accepts herself, accepts her greatness and flaws. Love your body no matter what size it is or how it looks like. Because this is what makes it you. Take care of your body, pamper it with proper hygiene and skin care.

Don’t Let Media Tell You How You Should Look
Sure there are lots of celebrities that we idolize for their beauties. But you don’t need to achieve celebrity status just to feel good about yourself. Remember anyone will look good with make up, hair extensions, and photo enhancers or surgery. Scratch the idea of being how to look like a certain person on how she looks. It is okay to have media as your inspiration or peg, but don’t let it dictate you on how you look.

Beauty Starts With Yourself
Beauty starts on how you view at yourself, not on how much make up you put to yourself, or how stylish the dress you are wearing. Remember if we see beauty in any situation, image or just simple things. Our inner beauty will shine and will see by other people.

Never Try To Be Perfect
Don’t ever try to be perfect! Everyone are imperfect and our imperfection makes us beautiful. Our imperfection sets us apart from others and our own uniqueness make us as our own. Perfect is boring anyway so never achieve that.

Believe in Yourself
This last part is the most important part, always believe in yourself and never anyone put you down. You should also be humble at the same time.
