A monochromatic yesterday

My cousin Jhaira invited us to watch TV5’s Wiltime Bigtime last Saturday. I went with my boyfriend Mark and my sister Micah. It felt really awkward everytime the camera would shift towards our direction. Plus, we had to wear this huge Cherry Mobile tshirt! It was fun actually. Until now, I’m still not over the LSS phase because of the show’s “tantaran chut-churut-churut” theme song, though sadly, I wasn’t able to do the dance properly. Ha ha ha!

Hype this on Lookbook.nu!

The photos are from last Saturday. My sister was in a hurry which was why I opted for red lippies to add instant color to my pale face. She also told me NOT to overdress so I grabbed the first tank top I could find in my closet. I went for black denim shorts, then covered up with grey cashmere sweater since it was raining (and because I didn’t want to look too gothic). And of course, my favorite wedges! It looks simple yet chic, and it’s actually super comfy.

Confession: I tend to over-accessorize. I know they say “less is more,” but sometimes I just can’t help it. The necklace I’m wearing is from Quirkypedia, one of my favorites because it has lots of crosses in it and in different layers. I am a fan of complicated-slash-crazy-in-a-good-way accessories. In this look I also wore my cross connector ring. (Right, I’m so full of crosses you’d think I’m being exorcised.) To minimize the dark aura, I chose a silver chained bag.

I tried to go monochromatic this time because I noticed my current obsession for bright colors. I’m starting to feel redundant.

Below are the photos of me and my cutie patootie sister Micah. She doesn’t own a lookbook account but she wants a new profile photo for her Facebook. I don’t judge her for that because that still doesn’t make her half as vain as I am. Haha, love you sis! <3

Learn from the Upper East Side

When it’s not Chuck Bass I’m drooling for, then it’s most certainly for Blair Waldorf’s closet.

On its fourth season, Gossip Girl fans of all ages (and sexes) remain to be untamed when it comes to the scandalous lives of the most beloved Manhattan elite. You know you’re one of them, and you know exactly why you love it.

Actually, there are way too many obvious reasons. But to keep myself from writing a novel here, I’d just mention one thing that it is most known for. Fashion.

Queen B

Blair Waldorf was not referred to as a queen for no reason. For one, this “evil dictator of taste” has a royal wardrobe.  Queen B has indeed lived up to her role as a sought-after fashion designer’s daughter, with her closet oozing with high end runway-worthy ensembles from only the biggest names in the industry of vogue. Try Chanel and Givenchy, and figure out yourself why Her Highness catches a Bass like no other.

S for Socialite

Whoever said that blondes have more fun has definitely heard of the name Serena van der Woodsen. And apparently, blondes get more out of fashion, too. Our favorite it-girl knows how to carry herself from winter to spring, rocking whatever label that she might be caught wearing (and that includes Archibald’s shirt).  No matter how many scandals she gets herself into, admit it, you’ll never meet anyone as paparazzi-ready as this blondie. Even Karl Lagerfeld knows so.

Little J

If we’re going to discuss fashion evolution, then Little J may not be so little anymore. Going back to her summer floral vibes to her rock star palette, from lip gloss to plum lipstick, from no-makeup look to intense eyeliner obsession, Taylor Momsen stays true to her character as the social-climbing wannabe, Jenny Humphrey. Love her or hate her. But here’s a fact- this Pretty Reckless has her own pretty style to brag about.

“Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It’s movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we’d like to be.”

–Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl

Pardon me, but this might be as Upper East Side as I can get. ;)
