Holiday Style :: Sweater Dressing

nora-dress-loose-knitwear-scoop-pullovers-sweater

Maligayang Pasko!  That’s how we say Merry Christmas in Filipino – from the land where Christmas is celebrated the longest (starting around when the “ber” months arrive and lasts until the Feast of the Three Kings on the 1st Sunday of January – yes, seriously) :-)

There’s just something about the nippy holiday season which brings out the best of my layering skills.   To make this pretty blush pink pullover sweater sexier and more party ready, I opted to wear it over my ever-reliable sweater dress plus these fabulous tan suede ankle-tie heels.

Now that we are already in the homestretch to the big day – I presume that everyone as of this point are almost and/or done with their Christmas shopping.  Smile and try to be zen about it.  Take the Christmas rush in stride and enjoy whatever’s left of the holidays.  And I am so looking forward to go vacation mode when I get to kick back, unwind and relax from all the hustle and bustle of the season.  I’ll see you back next week for a little year-ender post.

Holiday Party Style :: Red Fringes

As a so-called style blogger – one of the many things that would definitely make me happy is when I am able to merge all of my favorite things (not trends!) in a single look.  So count me in as a happy camper when I put together my all-time favorite sweater dress, OTK boots, aviator sunnies and this glamorous fringed faux suede jacket (this one is not lined – so don’t rely on it for warmth) in my signature color which I selected for my repeat collaboration with FASHION MIA - your newest online shopping destination for the best in holiday party style! ♥

Their styles and prices are so on-point for those countless holiday soirees where the goal is to wear a different outfit for each and every event.

Red Lips

cheap-clothes-online

Being in the corporate world for almost half of my life, I have always dressed up according to the demands and expectations of my profession (go figure here!).  That is, until blogging came along.  My personal style, I believe, have greatly evolved since those days of stuffy suits, blazers, power stockings, among others.

But if there’s probably one thing that I won’t ever change – it’s definitely the signature red lips!  I can’t ever imagine myself without it (thanks to my favorite MAC Ruby Woo lipstick and muse Gwen Stefani) that’s why I did not think twice when picking out this stunning off-shoulder sweater for my latest collaboration with FASHION MIA.  Judging by the quality of this sweater I have on – the price point is definitely something to smile about. :-)

Via this post – I would like to thank everyone who participated in the recent GIVEAWAY I hosted for the SUNGLASSES SHOP of U.K.  Congratulations go to Ms. Vero Martinez for winning a classic pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses! ♥

Autumn Boho Style

yoins-leaf-print-bell-sleeve-dress-with-lace-detail

In the spirit of this whimsical season we call Autumn (which includes Halloween and Thanksgiving for that matter) – I count myself blessed to again be part of a new collaboration with the YOINS brand and pick this pretty leaf-printed bell-sleeved dress with dainty lace details.

Honestly, I have always been careful of doing reviews especially for Asian-based brands due to quality and size issues (price point is not always king to me!) but I can assure you this dress passed my standards.  I quickly fell in love with the soft silky feel of the fabric of this breezy shift dress.  The black and white strategically-placed leaf prints, the plunging V-neckline, the sexy cut outs at the back and the swinging bell-shaped sleeves are details which totally left me swooning.  Plus any outfit which can feed my eternal boho style obsession and can alternate as my Halloween costume with just the flick of a witch hat is a complete knock out in my style book! ♥

BTW, I hope you all stay tuned here and/or my social media sites (FacebookInstagram and Twitter) because I have a couple of great giveaways (think Ray-Ban ;-) ) from my generous sponsors lined up for everyone in the coming weeks! ♥

Holiday Sassy

Maligayang Pasko! That’s how we say Merry Christmas in Filipino….from the land where Christmas is celebrated the longest (starting September till January 6 – yes seriously!) :-)

So a festive (but crazy!) season like this deserves a sassy look courtesy of this super versatile blazer (unlined) from TRENDY FINE which I have been wearing up and down ever since it came in the mail.  And in connection with this – I am so pleased to announce of my continuing collaboration with TRENDY FINE!  Like me, I am sure that you’ll be amazed at their huge collection of dresses, tops, bottoms and outerwear. ♥

Now that we are already in the homestretch to the big day – I presume that everyone as of this point are done with their Christmas shopping.  Smile and try to be zen about it – take the Christmas rush in stride and enjoy whatever’s left of the holidays.  And I am so looking forward to the day when I get to kick back, unwind and relax from all the hustle and bustle of the season.  I’ll see you back next week for a little year-ender post. ;-)
