Sheer Gem

tobi-gem-off-shoulder-embroidered-top

Better late than never but I am all too happy to finally hop on to Summer’s (or whatever is left of it) off-the-shoulder bandwagon.  I have actually given up hope that I will ever wear this hot trend because the ones I see online and in stores just don’t fit my style, quality and price quotas.

So I know I hit the style jackpot when I found this alluring and statement piece off-the-shoulder embroidered top amongst TOBI‘s awesome collection of the most swoon-worthy looks this side of Los Angeles.

Be amazed and waste no time in checking out TOBI‘s huge online collection of the most to-die-for shoeslingeriebridesmaid dressessandalstopssunglassesgold white dressesblazersswimsuitsformal dressesleggingstriangle bikinisblack blue dressesmaxi skirtswrap dresses - the list is endless!  Plus new customers get 50% off their first purchase. :-)

And via this post – I am taking a mini-blogging break (my 1st in 4 years actually) to give way to my 2-week Philippine sojourn starting this Saturday to celebrate my lovely mom’s 85th birthday!  Follow me at Instagram and/or Snapchat (redtagchicla) for fun snaps and updates.  Regular programming will start Monday, September 5 – see you all soon! ♥

Black Beauty

tobi-turn-me-out-wrap-top

Repeat collaborations, especially when it is as extraordinary as the first time (check out the 1st round here, here and here) will always be special and close to my heart.  So I can’t be more excited to open another round of campaign (4 outfits yay!!) with my favorite Los Angeles-based brand TOBI.  With its uniquely alluring styles like this flowy TURN ME OUT wrap top, it’s not a surprise that TOBI has quickly become synonymous with the casual, cool and sexy vibe that the City of Angels exudes.

I am totally sure that you’ll have a blast and go nuts shopping TOBI‘s huge online collection of the most to-die-for shoeslingeriebridesmaid dressessandalstopssunglassesgold white dressesblazersswimsuitsformal dressesleggingstriangle bikinisblack blue dressesmaxi skirtswrap dresses - the list is endless!  Plus new customers get 50% off their first purchase. ♥

And I count myself blessed to find a high-waist match for this Summer-perfect wrap top via this fabulous pair of TOPSHOP leather shorts (the quality and side stitch details are to.die.for!) courtesy of OCTER – a unique marketplace of the biggest U.K. stores where you can shop by departments or by store.  Try downloading the OCTER app and instantly compare products, style and prices at your fingertips.

Really Rust

lace-swing-dress

Yes I saved the best for last!  This gorgeous statement lace dress in rust completes the trifecta (see the two other lovelies here and here) of my festival style campaign with U.K.-based brand BOOHOO.

Not even my DSLR camera could give justice to rust color and the intricate lace detailing of this Tara dress.  I love the length and how the swing-y shape spells freedom and hides a multitude of sins in my midsection brought about by a lot of Summer food trips here and there.  Plus the rich earth-y rust color is really making me look forward to transition already to Fall dressing.

By the way, I am again very excited to welcome with open arms a couple of brand collaborations in the coming weeks.  Special shout out of thanks go to the following brands for believing that yours truly could rock their fabulous styles:  Los Angeles-based brand TOBI, U.K-based online comparison market place OCTER, online destination for the best in resort wear STAYING SUMMER and online market place UNCOMMON GOODS. ♥

Short Break

black-and-white-striped-shorts

Pardon the pun but no I’m not (yet :-) ) taking a blogging break.  I actually am just taking a week’s break from my BOOHOO festival style campaign via this outfit I personally curated featuring this fabulous pair of shorts I snagged at ZARA’s huge sale (still ongoing btw).  I love how this look is practically a blend of old (that top is circa 2008, I think!) and new (the shorts) and the results are seamless made possible with the right accessories.

I had quite a weekend so lovely and busy having spent time with family visiting in from the Philippines – that I have to keep this as short (pun again) and quick as possible.  Have an unforgettable week everyone!  ♥

Pretty Paisley

wrap-shirt-dress

I can’t be more excited to unwrap (pun intended!) another dress from my BOOHOO festival style campaign package.  And it’s a no-brainer that I would select this wrap dress in pretty paisley – my favorite boho print of all time from BOOHOO‘s huge collection of outfits that are so fun to wear in a festival yet chic and polished enough for work and other swanky soirees.

Aside from those obvious reasons, I felt so challenged to add more shape to this easy breezy dress.  But it turned out that I need not do anything to this dress to make it sexier.  All it needs are little details (like a hat) and the right attitude (a smile will definitely do) to make it pop!
