There's something about black lace that is utterly romantic and chic. I feel like I can always wear pieces like these and just change my accessories then I'd be ready to go. So I packed this dress along with some blazers I never get to wear for a weekend in Baguio (a mountain city) with my cousin. Drank endless cups of coffee amidst the pine trees, ate delicious pizza the entire time, went bar hopping, talked to a cute korean boy, ogled at the effortless trendy style of korean girls, went to visit the Ben Cab museum, shopped for necklaces, then went home tired but happy. All in all, an amazing weekend.

Happy Monday Lovelies!

I've been looking for airplane tickets for a while now (i haven't really been to boracay!) but until then, I can only dream of white sands and blue sparkling waters. I wanted to imbibe a carefree beach-like vibe today so out came this dress with a multitude of colors and crazy prints, tied my hair in a scarf and imagined I was on the way to tropical paradise (but really on my way to work). Maybe soon (fingers crossed).

Have a great mid week everyone!

Maybe we could all be heroines

So I stayed up late last night to watch Pride and Prejudice and it never fails to give me a sugary high. Inspired, I wanted to evoke something romantic today, so i wore these feminine pieces and french braided my hair. If only I could meet a modern Mr Darcy, then I'd feel like a heroine, if only for a day.

So yesterday, I had a date with my guy which was cut short by an emergency. I couldn't fault him too much because it was a weekday and in my frustration, went to Greenbelt for some retail therapy. I dropped by at Adora and found an amazing deal on Cheap Monday jeans (buy 1 take 1) plus got my eyes dizzy and happy with all the fabulous shoes on display. Ran my fingers on sexy Dolce and Gabbana dresses, Missoni prints and tried on Manolo's. Truly a treat for a girl.


BUT at the end of the day, I realized that I really missed him when I mused to myself that I could give up the shopping in exchange for a day with my love.


Happy Weekend everyone! I hope you'll have a good one and I'd like to thank everyone who continues to read my little blog :)

When I need some cheering up, I just get myself a dose of some yellow. And rightly so, the color is associated with optimism, enlightenment and happiness. The only dilemma is that me in yellow dress coming out of my yellow car= color overdose :) But if it brightened up anyone's day, I didn't mind at all.

Have a great day Lovelies!

p.s sorry my dslr skills leave much to be desired. but i learned one thing that day, shooting in bright light makes photos dark.

Blue Skies are all I need

The sight of blue skies and open seas never cease to amaze me. But how I wish the wind would just whisper so that I can get the beach shot with the perfect hair.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Roman Holiday is one of those movies I can watch over and over again. The fashion of that era is one I admire very much and Audrey Hepburn's costumes in the movie are fantastic. Inspired by her, I pulled out this skirt that I never seem to wear because of the length and paired it with a fitted top. I would've put on a scarf like hers but couldn't find the perfect print hehe.

And speaking of holidays, I'd like to share some photos of our trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. It is a wonderful city with friendly people, good food and amazing shopping :)

This is the City Mosque in Kota Kinabalu. It is an exemplary of Islamic Contemporary architecture and the man made lagoon surrounding it made it look like it was floating on water.

And sharing one personal picture with you guys, of the boyf and I infront of the Menara Tun Mustapha (Sabah Foundation Building). This building is one of only four hanging structures in the world. It has a revolving restaurant in the 18th floor but sadly, we didn't get to eat there due to time constraints. le boyf doesn't smile very much in photos because he's kind of formal and conservative but he loves it when I make him laugh. :) At the end of the trip, I realized that all of the shirts he wore were the ones I bought for him ( I pick something for him too when i go shopping).

Have a great day everyone!!

The rains have been pouring spontaneously over a week now and I love the cooler temperature. But what I don't like is the rain seeping into my feet, making me cold and cranky. I've been eyeing these boots for quite some time now and a change of weather cajoled me into purchasing it along with some umbrellas.

How was your weekend everyone? I hope it's been nice and fun.

xoxo, Cherie

So yeah, I bought one..

So I finally succumbed to a trend. I went ahead and finally got myself a blazer. I love how it kind of "toughens up" a girly outfit and lend some tailored clean lines. I also like how it adds warmth to an otherwise windy and chilly day because of the rain.

Paired it up with my glitziest dress ever, a fully sequined halter dress for some dinner. This is part of my room by the way.

Sorry for all those wires and stuff sticking out my secretaire, this is my workstation in my room. And if you look closely, there's a picture of the boyf beside my laptop. I know, kind of cheesy hehe. The calendar at the back is set to April 2009 and until now it's still there. My mom bought it for me since she knew I love dogs. I guess everytime I look at it I remember her indulging me in my love of pets.

Found the perfect earrings to go with my garnet flower ring. I bought this gold metal rose earrings at SM department store in Baguio. They have the prettiest selection of accessories there. I've been actually wearing them everyday since Monday!

I've been clutching my wireless remote for my camera, hence the weird pose. A friend from Tokyo gave it to me, after seeing me run when I set the self-timer. Thanks Gabby!

Wearing an unbranded blazer from Japan, unbranded halter sequined dress and Kate Spade peeptoe heels. Have a nice midweek everyone! Time flies so fast isn't it?
