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.

By the way, don’t forget to use discount code RSBC2317 at checkout to get 20% off when shopping at Baciano’s fabulous site!

Gorgeous Gray

csc_0433-copy

I really thought I will never see the day when I could go a day (albeit, it’s been weeks now) without blogging, until it happened!  Yes I got into hibernation, cut back on social media – and surprisingly enjoyed every minute of it.  I am hoping against hope, though, that this “thing” is only temporary – and that the fire and passion (despite the time constraints) to curate a look, write about it, and prove to the world, that style is ageless, and anyone can look fabulous at all cost (high or low) –  is still there.  Blogging (and everything/everyone that comes with it) after all has already been a part of who I am.

Thank God this beyond gorgeous Zara dress I got as an early Christmas present from my beloved nephew snapped me out of hibernation.   Amazing that someone could capture everything I wanted in a dress – minimalist (in my favorite Fall/Winter color) with a hint of frill.

So before I disappear again :-) and everyone gets really busy with the holidays – let me greet one and all the best of the holiday season (Christmas, Hanukkah, among others) as we look forward to a better and peaceful 2017! ♥

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! ♥

Summer Fling

boohoo-pheobe-woven-low-dipped-back-top

Not one to complain about the eternal Summer weather this side of the planet, but I really planned on re-styling this gorgeous pumpkin-colored BOOHOO top with my over-the-knee boots for a fun night out on the town with my girl squad.

The climate, in general, has been so troubling lately.  My heart and prayers go out to Haiti and those along the Florida coast affected by the devastating Hurricane Matthew.  We here in Southern California are still on “heightened earthquake alert” and advised not to let our guard down as the “big one” is just lurking around the corner (sigh!).

On a brighter note, I am looking forward to wear a Fall-fabulous outfit from STAYING SUMMER next week – so you guys must watch out for it!
