Holiday Season and Party OOTDs

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

December is no doubt the season for parties! It is also the season where most of us let ourselves go for the meantime because we just can’t help it! Food is just everywhere! Who can resist? But Personally though I knew I didn’t want to let myself go and have to keep watch on my diet because I have to look good on my OOTDs for all those holiday parties I will be attending! HAHAHA! Call me vain, but who wouldn’t want to look amazing on every outfit? Well I tried! So here are my top three favorite #OOTD from the different Holiday Parties I attended.

The Leopard Printed Romper

I am always skeptical about wearing rompers as I am afraid I’d end up looking like an overgrown baby! Rompers can be tricky so it is really important that you know how to style it, choose the right romper and pull it off and come out sophisticated. Here’s mine! Wore this during our Bloggers Thanksgiving dinner and Clubbing later part of the night.

How To Wear Stripes

I am among those ladies who have always been scared to put that piece of stripes on despite the fact that I am fascinated by it especially the black and white ones. Well, for one, I gained too much weight over the years and I just know stripes won’t do my body any justice – vertical stripes that is! And I find horizontal stripes weird too! So I made a conscious effort to avoid wearing stripes or anything with pattern. Fast forward 2016, I shed off weight I still have this fascination over stripes and I noticed it has become a thing lately so I said to myself, screw the rules! Let’s go stripey! 😀

Don’t get me wrong, that time when I was so scared of stripes, I think I was just paranoid and focused much on how it can make me even wider. But you know what? I realized that stripes is for everyone! No matter what your size is, stripes is for you! Forget all about the rules, if you like it, wear it! Not confident or kind of lost where to start? Well, I hope you’ll find these tips below helpful in choosing the perfect stripes that will suit your body type.

  • Hourglass – You are lucky if you have this body shape! Curvaceous figures can pull off any pattern – stripes too. But to accentuate curves, wear horizontal stripes to add focus to your hips and bust.
  • Petite – for small women, you will want to maximize your height. Opt for thin, vertical stripes to elongate your figure.
  • Pear – for you ladies out there with bigger bottom halves and narrower shoulders, go for a horizontal stripe top to create the illusion of a bigger torso.
  • Apple – If you have a larger midsection, you would want to go for vertical or diagonal stripes.
  • Rectangle – For the ones with ‘straight up and down’ body type, without carrying weight in one particular area, horizontal stripes with varying width can look fabulous. If you’re wanting to create the illusion of more curves, choose larger stripes.

More Tips:

  • Look for fabrics that follow the shape of your body and have structure.
  • Even if you are wearing side-ways stripes, create a dominant vertical line down your body by putting on a cover-up, jacket, or vest. Use a scarf or a necklace to create that long vertical line down your body.

Fashion OOTDs

“Being stylish means standing out…yet fitting in at the same time..”

Hola ladies! I’m back with my OOTD scene! I know it’s been a while since my last update and I am so guilty for kind of falling out of the fashion blogging wagon the past days. Though I consistently post OOTDs (Outfit Of The Day) on my Instagram account, I awfully fail to blog about them.  Schedule’s been crazy busy lately, new home, workout, work, and God knows what else! I pretty much compiled my OOTDs though so here sharing some of them (yes, more than one of my OOTDs).

They have tons of cutesy stuff for women.

What I Wore – The Romper

romper fashion trend

Hello there my pretties! I am so excited to share this #OOTN on one of the events I attended later part of November. Yes, this is a bit overdue but hey! better late than never :D. Are you into The Romper trend? Me honestly, I wasn’t the biggest fan until I decided to wear this. I had this sleeping in my closet for a while because 1. I couldn’t find the perfect occasion for it, 2. It didn’t fit me so well until just recently that I shed off some extra weight and it felt more comfortable wearing. And I thought it’s a little too short. 3. I wasn’t sure if I can pull it off!

Weekend Going White Back to Back OOTD

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

“Fashion has to reflect who you are, what you feel at the moment, and where yoi’re going. It doesn’t have to be bright, doesn’t have to be loud. Just to be you.”

I am naturally a “kikay” as we locally call it, I usually go for the cutesy and girly look. But I am not getting any younger so I thought of experimenting with my look and my outfits for a change. Something in-between, not too young but not too old. And what a perfect time to play stylist than on a weekend get away and get together. So, with no further ado, here’s what I came up with last weekend.

The Rugged Style to the Corn Field

tattered jeans

I was invited to a corn field visit by Monsanto Group (I’ll talk more about the visit on my Personal Blog) together with some blogger friends. Since we will be doing some activities in the field, I opted for the tattered jeans which I did myself, a cute top from Island Souvenirs and my K-swiss sneakers. What I love with this style is, though it is rugged, the femininity is still there.

Comfy and Relaxed Look

Was meeting my High School set of besties and I opted for a comfortable and relaxed outfit. I have been obsessing with white lately and I love how elegant a white top can look no matter what the bottom is. And besides the heat of the sun is just excruciating so wearing something to contrast it is a great idea. I definitely love the entire look! Simple yet sexy (well my own opinion at least! lol!). Special thanks to my friend Jackey for getting me these fabulous Toms Shoes! I totally adore it!

The Weekend – What I Wore

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It was the weekend and what better way to spend it than being with loved ones in an awesome (at least for me) outfit to go with the fabulous day! For the weekend back to back #OOTD I opted for both black but with a little touch something else to complete the look.

jumpsuit 2
Feeling a bit relaxed with this Black/Pink Margarita Jumpsuit I bought from an online store owned by a friend. I love how soft and flowy the cloth feels. My first time to sport a jumpsuit so I wanted to be safe with the classic black one piece as it flatters one’s body type and builds confidence! Add a belt to de-frump a shapeless onesie.

Decided to play elegantly safe on a Sunday with a Little Black Dress (LBD) going to church and lunch date after with my boys. Notice the same belt I used with the jumpsuit? It is becoming a favorite! Stayed light on makeup with the “No makeup, makeup look” and please forgive my eyebags as I have been having trouble getting enough sleep lately ^_^
LBD: Old Navy
Shoes: Ellie

Bodycon Weekend OOTD

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It was the weekend and I am feeling a little confident and dressy so I decided to sport my bodycon dress though I know I don’t have that perfect body to rock it. But who cares?! I love the dress and my judgement tells me that it looks okay anyway (give it to me just this time okay?).

bodycon dress

A bodycon dress is shortcut for body conscious dress that takes cue from the figure-hugging Herve Leger bandage dress. They say sporting it is a bold statement of self-esteem and body confidence (hahaha! made me laugh at myself for a while there). It is a style that is made to hug every single curve, it’s designed to proudly show off your shape. But seriously, don’t stress yourself too much on having this certain “shape” to wear a bodycon. You don’t have to be a size zero to rock this trend. Here are some tips for you if you plan into sporting a bodycon dress.

Go Dark – if you are a bit conscious with your body, opt for darker shade. Not only it is chic, it is always on trend (take cue on the little black dress). Plus it creates a slimmer figure.

Lock on the waistline – again you don’t have to be a size zero to rock that bodycon. Look for a design that accentuates the waistline. Look slimmer by wearing something that features black or darker panel sides.

Layer Up – If a bodycon makes you so self-conscious, don’t stress yourself out! layer it up by adding a loose-fitting cardigan or a little oversized jacket. A tailored blazer can also make this sexy look more polished and office-friendly.

Go For Thicker Fabrics – Personally, this is a great way to minimize the bulges you don’t want to show. Choose a more structured design as it skims down your waist and shape over your hips, without creating extra bulges.

Important Note: Wearing the right underwear is very crucial with body con dresses. Make sure you wear the right one. Visible panty lines can be disastrous and distracting!
