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!

That Festival Feeling

festival-style-ideas

Join me as I kick off another exciting collaboration with one of my favorite brands BOOHOO via its festival style campaign – a look that is totally on-trend and so in sync with Summer!

Although I’ve always thought that I was a flower child in my past life ;-) , I believe I don’t have to be at that boho playground called Coachella to rock that style.  And anyone who has been taking a peek at my evolving style here can easily surmise that I had always a huge love for anything flowy and details that scream festival style what with all the paisley, lace, ruffles, fringes, denim, etc., I’ve worn over the years.

So I count my lucky stars for being in this campaign and have a field day choosing over BOOHOO‘s enormous festival collection of the prettiest and most interesting styles here, starting with this super flirty Pheobe top  (scroll down to see the deep plunge at the back) I’ve been mixing up and down with almost everything in my closet.  ♥

America the Beautiful

marshalls-black-eyelet-halter-top

Happy 4th of July everyone!  Another chance to thank America for being so warm and welcoming to immigrants like me.  Life has really been good (not perfect but definitely good) and right now, I would not have it any other way and can’t think of any other place to live other than here in the Land of the Free! ♥

Brand collaborations are the best and have lately become the bread and butter of the blog.  But I always pray and jump at the chance of going back to my blog’s roots of finding deals, i.e. of being fabulous at all costs (mostly low ;-) ).  And that prayer was answered once more when I scored this black eyelet halter top (I love the midsection-friendly peekaboo) from my friendly neighborhood Marshalls which I’m mixing up and down lately either with shorts, skirts and palazzo pants.

Speaking of collaborations – I can’t be more excited to join my favorite UK-brand BOOHOO‘s celebration of festival style via a trifecta (yes, they sent 3!) of their most fun and eclectic styles over the next few weeks.

I also would like to thank everyone who participated in the recent GIVEAWAY I hosted for yoga/activewear brand AIRABELLA ACTIVE where a $25 store credit went to the lucky winner Ms. Danielle Spinato! ♥

Airabella Active Giveaway

airabella-active-cool-mint-breathe-tank-top

Hello everyone!  Someone (that’s me!) is totally stripping down to her yoga pants to bring you the new active/yoga wear brand AIRABELLA ACTIVE.  For a gym/yoga/pilates enthusiast (yes I do wear lipstick at the gym and yoga) like me, being asked to collaborate and bring to life a line of active/yoga wear to compete with the reigning brands like Lululemon, Fabletics, among others – is such a distinct pleasure. ♥

Being a relative freshman in this field – AIRABELLA ACTIVE surely didn’t disappoint when I quickly took this exciting workout combo on a spin at the gym (plus shopping afterwards!) last weekend.  I give my two thumbs up to the design and the wicking of the fabric which repelled sweat, making me stay cool as a cucumber while struggling with my ab curls and shoulder presses at the gym.  And I can’t stop gushing at the snug wrinkle-free quality of the fabric which would surely withstand my gravity-defying yoga poses.  Just be sure to go a size up to stay comfy and minimize all those stubborn bulges around the mid-section.

So without further ado, let me unveil this exciting GIVEAWAY I am hosting for them starting today Monday,  June 27 at 1 a.m. till Sunday, July 3  at 12 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) - where a $25 store credit will go to the lucky winner.  That is on top of 15% discount AIRABELLA ACTIVE is giving out to everyone (site-wide) by using promo code “redtagchic” at checkout!

Use the easy-peasy Rafflecopter below to enter – I will announce the lucky winner in my next post coming out next Monday, 4th of July! ♥
