1920s Style

Have you ever heard of the flapper look or Gatsby style? Well this was the fashion trend back in 1920s where women’s style literally loosened up (unfitted dresses).

From skirts that rose above the ankle (1910), in 1920 the skirts got shorter (knee-length) and corsets came off, drop waist became popular, necklines were usually a “V” shape, fabrics were made from chiffon, light silks, soft velvet, and soft cotton.

I guess we have to be thankful to this era for it started simplicity in a very stylish way.

For a casual look ladies back then would wear something like this:

If I were to interpret this era I would style something like this:

I Love Blue, But It Doesn’t Mean I Want To Feel Blue

“Everything is just passing, enjoy it!” This has been my mantra for two weeks now. A constant reminder to myself that I have to slow down and take things easy. Have you ever feel so overwhelmed about everything that is going on with your life sometimes? Like yourself is divided between the things you are currently doing and from those you plan of doing. Wishing you can have more than 24 hours in a day, but knowing it can never happen. Have you ever been to this phase?

Moving on the lighter side, here’s me looking gorgeous (Sorry, but I am claiming it. Please agree with me just this once. Hehe) at the Bloggys 2015 held last 21 November 2015.

If I ever win a UFC fight, I’d be the sweetest title holder. 😛 (What do you think?)

Finalists for beauty and fashion category

The experience was both inspiring and slightly intimidating for me. If you are surrounded with bloggers whom you know are better than you or way, way better than you how would you feel? But putting the negativity aside, the important thing is that this event just made me want to do better. Cheers to a more positive outlook!

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists! (I wish I’d be a finalist next time. 🙂 )

The Aspiring Stylist

I know it’s too late for the current season but I don’t care. I can’t wait for summer 2016 to share this. LOLs!

It was summer when they invited me to join an open shoot and nope I wasn’t one of the models or one of the photographers. My job was to do hair, make-up and wardrobe styling! It was my first time (I mean doing it somewhat official) and boy I was so excited. (Giddy)

Here see my works! 🙂

Formal/Business Look

When we hear the word formal, black and white are the first colors we have in mind. Pair it with checkered for a little POP!

Casual Wear

Give your plain colored tank top a chance by just wrapping a scarf.

Party Look

Love partying like a wild cat? Try hitting the club with a leopard print top, leggings and boots next time. HAHA!
