Positive Energy

May 24, 2011
Work wear! For those wondering, I’m currently working/interning for a popular Filipino designer, Rhett Eala and this is what I pretty much wear when I go to work.. Well sorta. I just got this button down from my sister Pauline last Monday and decided to wear it to work the day after, it’s unbelievably comfy and it kept me cool the entire day while designing, researching and styling.

| Button Down: Random from Bangkok | Belt: H&M | Skinnies: Zara | Shoes and Bag: Parisian | Swallow Necklace: Forever 21 | Ring: Extreme Finds |



I decided to “amp up” my look by throwing on these cute new turquoise pumps and this cool bag from Parisian! The color of these heels definitely added that extra something and my bag gave my quite casual work outfit a tad bit more professionalism with a dash of.. We.. My style of course, haha!


If you all noticed that this isn’t really very “me” well, I have Catherine “Kate” Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge to thank for my outfit inspiration. I gave a business-esque look a much “younger” approach, something Kate Middleton always does and looks incredibly chic while doing so. For the record, she is one of my newest style icons, she can make very sophisticated pieces look sexy yet classy. I love it!!

OH! OH! And I finally got a little surprise from Yozo, which I cannot wait to show you how I’ll style it! Also cause you guys gave great suggestions which I’d love to fuse into my idea, woohoo!!

    I saw you at the Forever 21 fashion show and just fell in love with that absolutely gorgeous earring of yours. Where’d you get it?

      It’s not really nail art, it’s the OPI Black Shatter nail polish πŸ™‚ I’m using Loreal in P122, Vivid Rose πŸ™‚ It’s perfect for those everyday on the go looks, hahah!

    Looking wonderful as always. If only my career (whatever that may be) would allow such creativity in clothing. Aren’t blue pumps the best! I cant stop wearing mine!

    Hi there! I was Googling intern for fashion design student and I got directed to your blog. I was just wondering how did you land working/interning for Rhett Eala? I’m actually interested in interning for a Filipino designer and its really hard to find one. I hope you find time to answer my question. Btw, I love your look very stylish chic. Take care =)
