Fashion Myths

Are you still subscribing to fashion myths? The fashion myths that are listed here are somewhat old fashion rules that some may find themselves still subscribing to. I lifted some bullets from this reference article and put together these looks to add proof how archaic they are.

Avoid Black & Navy Together. Honestly, I'm not so aware of this rule until I came across it in the said article. But black and navy combo is one of the chicest ever. You don't even have to know about that rule.

No White After Labor Day. For a little background of this rule, you may check my previous post about this here. This is just a reinforcement that this really doesn't apply today anymore.

Mixing Prints is a No-No. It's not guaranteed that it will always look cool but if you stick to the guidelines as I have discussed here, you'll look cool!

You Shouldn't Wear Socks With Sandals. Well, let's just say that my Valentine's Day didn't "sock" because of these fishnet additions. Haha!

Your Accessories Need to Match. Admit it, playing matchy matchy all the time sometimes feel boring already. Mixing things up a bit keeps your look interesting.

Cold Spell ❄️️

Bes, sobrang lamig lately.  It’s true. Weather is one of the things people complain about way too often. Haha. We Filipinos are often conditioned that “ber” months are supposedly the coldest months but we’re not prepared for these brrr weeks happening in the country lately what with new record-low temperatures recorded in different cities due to the Northeast Monsoon (7 deg in Baguio!!! Awesome!!!) For the last two days for example, I would purposely get out of the office just to expose myself to sunlight because it’s just too abnormally chilly in the office. 😷

But in any case, the proper solution as always is to dress accordingly. Isn’t it nice? I don't have to go to Baguio to pull off some of my winter stuff, haha! I can wear three layers whenever I want and discover re-wear potential of some of my stuff so totes not complaining here. Haha! So here's how I inject some of my winter accessories into my daily outfits though. P.S. You’ll see them too in my winter trip sometime next week. 😉 Plus, I'm doing a product review for an accessory below. Keep on reading. 🙂

Hats. It's not a secret that anything that has a French touch to it is a must in my wardrobe and this iconic staple is not an exception. I have been in the lookout for a good beret for long and Rosegal has just what I've been looking for. Having this piece in my head, it's not very hard to understand how the French women adapted this to iconic heights. It has a snug fit and can be rotated into different angles for your dramatic needs. And let's not forget, the wool material is an excellent protection from cold, wind and the rain. Very functional indeed.

KL Tower 🗼

Being the fourth tallest telecommunication tower of the world, the Kuala Lumpur tower offers the best 360-degree view of the city. It is shorter than the famous Petronas towers but it has the advantage of being situated on top of a hill.

I've been here maybe 6 years ago for snacks at the revolving restaurant. But I just had to go back this time to check out their newest attraction found at the open deck - the sky box. In here, only a glass separates you and the ground 1400 ft below. 😱😱😱

We had a swell time having our photo-op and looking at the scopes at the observation deck. It was a good way to end our work trip in KL. 😁😁😁

Low Block Heel

First business trip for the year, second time in KL for 2017 and forever organizing my business trip looks in just one item. This time around it's these low block heel pumps that looks very pretty in its ribbon details. I've really come to that age where the heels doesn't matter anymore and comfort is now the priority. 🙈

I traveled with the same people from work this time and the upgrade of our suites to an executive one (just had to take a photo in the room below) motivated us so much 😂 to finish our work ahead of time so that come last day of our trip, we had a chance to squeeze in a city attraction before leaving Malaysia, truly Asia. 😛

Sponsored: Leggings 2.0

With leggings outpacing denim online, there’s no denying that it and athleisure are here to stay. And as with any trend, the only future is to see them in different variations. Sheer panels, cutouts, prints and color – the options are endless. And for sure you’ve happened to see them in any of the It girls during their workouts.

Having said that, Zaful gave me the opportunity to test drive the trend in the form of these stretchy pants with high mesh panels. Yep, they really look sexy but let’s move past that and focus on its breathability. I’ve worn them in my yoga sesh for a few times now and not only do they get the girl’s attentions and make you cool but they indeed cool you off during your hardest workouts. Sexy and functional, no complaints from this girl right here. If this ain’t your thing though, you can also one of their leggings with mesh panel that is found in this post. ;)

Full Sails Ahead 🚢

“Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go. This is my station.”

For those of you who’ve been following me in my social platforms, you may have been aware that earlier this month I went on a 4D3N cruise with Star Cruise. We boarded in Georgetown, Penang where I had the chance to explore one of its heritage found here😊

I’m not a rookie when it comes to cruising. The experience is just a little different, depending on the company, the crew although the first one had quite similar destination but a different boarding area which was Singapore. And what better company is there than girls who just wanna have fun? Haha! 👯‍♀️

 For example, in my past cruise 4 years ago, we were out having a sane lovely company dinner in one of the seafood restaurants at night in Phuket. It was a January kick-off meeting with my ex-company btw. But who would’ve thought that just a few walks from there along the street of Bangla, there’s a whole new mad, crazy and lively scene happening right there? Haha! I would have loved to stay in a bar and just watch everything unfold right before my eye but, the ship beckons. And the same thing with Krabi. Hence, the quote above.

Still, I’m grateful to be back in these pockets of the world and learn a few things while on the way. Catch more of this cruise in my posts soon. 😊
