Baciano Summer

CSC_0562

Hello everyone!   I am quite back and I can’t believe that the blogging landscape has dramatically changed since I logged out in March.  Last time I checked (I did a research for about a week now, when I started working on this post), even my favorite top bloggers who used to pull in about a hundred or so comments, are now down to just 50-ish comments or so.  What is going on?  Does nobody read blogs anymore?  Is everyone really just stuck at Instagram? (I love it though! Follow me here)  Even Facebook pages are lagging behind!  So many questions but one thing I am sure of is,  I am totally enjoying a pressure-free life outside of blogging.

And it is now so obvious that only Los Angeles-based indie brands like BACIANO could pull me out of blog hibernation.  Who can ever say no to this gorgeous palazzo pants that I can’t stop wearing since I got it from the mail?  I have been mixing and matching it with almost everything in my closet and I even bravely marched to work this week wearing it! ♥

I guess there isn’t a better time than the first day of Spring to fire up the blog again and in no less than a poncho with all the right boho vibes to remind everyone that festival season is once more upon us!

So look no farther than my favorite Los Angeles-based indie brand BACIANO for a festival look that embodies the casual, effortlessly chic and sexy vibe of the City of Angels.

Team Baciano

fringed-poncho

Yes I am officially a Team Baciano brand ambassador!  So now it can be told that only a Los Angeles-based brand like Baciano could pull out yours truly from blog semi-retirement.

As a blogger, I have always been passionate about my adopted hometown’s indie fashion brands especially when it embodies the casual, effortlessly chic and sexy vibe of the City of Angels – and Baciano absolutely fits the bill!   I can’t get enough of the trendy, flattering and boho vibe (fringes abound!) of their pieces (even if it’s as flowy as this sexy but warm poncho).

Inspired by the quintessential modern woman – Baciano “focuses on creating sophisticated pieces that are ahead of its time, inspiring outfits that stand out because of their sophistication and elegance, while upholding that young and hip L.A. vibe.”  And because they are really making waves in the Los Angeles style circuit, Baciano will be featured at the RAW Natural Born Artists event this March 29, 2017 to be held at the Exchange LA – you can purchase your tickets here.

Jet Black

staying-summer-black-backless-bodycon-cape-dress

 The crisp and gorgeous California-style Fall weather last weekend was definitely the perfect backdrop for this sensational little black dress I hand-picked for the third and last installment of my exciting collaboration with fashion-forward brand STAYING SUMMER.

I am not really a fan of the bodycon dress (I sized up to large to make it less bodycon, though) but I just could not resist the dramatic cape (by now, I guess you’re sure that I’m a caped crusader in my past life for my love of anything with capes) and daring backless (yes, proudly bra-less here!) style of this dress.

By the way, join me in my prayers as my beloved Philippines battles its perennial super typhoons again.  It’s that time of the year when as a super typhoon exits the Philippine area of responsibility, another super howler is spotted in the horizon, whew! :-(

On a brighter note, I am so looking forward to launch new partnerships in the coming weeks with STYLEWE and HAPPINESS BOUTIQUE - so it’s something y’all should watch out for! ♥
