A Not So Secret Love Affair

I have a confession to make.
I've been carrying on a steamy love affair.
With metallic stuff, that is, and I can't seem to have enough of them! Metallic silver and metallic gold bags, shoes, and belts have been my thing for quite some time now and I wear them with most anything - from evening to daytime dresses and most everything in between! They give every look that elegant and glamorous vibe that I love so much.
So much so that I'm literally drawn to all things shiny and glittery.
It shouldn't come as a surprise, therefore, that I was more than delighted when my friends from TUTUM - one of my favorite online shops - sent me this pair of gold slip-ons. Not just cause they're super comfy but now I can actually incorporate my metallic obsession to casual wear like jeans and shorts! After all, who says you can't look glam and fab in casuals?

Come Rain or Shine

In my last post, I spoke about the bipolar tendencies of the weather here in Manila and how it could be warm, bright and sunny one moment and cold, stormy, typhoon-ish the next, Well I found what I feel is the perfect outfit to survive these unceremonial weather changes.

It consists of this full look from FOREVER 21 that consists of a black leather jacket over a sleeveless knit top, floral skirt and black lace up booties. It's enough to keep me covered up during a sudden downpour, and when it gets too warm, it's as easy as simply taking off the jacket.

500 Days of Summer

I've written time and again about being a fashion blogger based in a tropical country. It is a rather interesting if confusing 'anomaly' of sorts - this whole thing about season differences. While summer has long gone (since nearly a month ago) from these islands I call home, it is only just beginning in many other parts of the world.

Add to that the rather bipolar tendencies of the weather hereabouts - sunshiny in the morning and stormy on the brink of typhoon-ish in the afternoon towards the evening. And so, we've learnt to deal with it by carrying an extra set of clothing in the car just in case the weather forces an outfit change.

Which brings me to today's outfit featuring a blue and white outfit that's light and airy like the summer breeze. To add just a bit of elegance, I wore it with this lovely YSLChevron bag and gold stilettos from Charles and Keith - a current favorite.
It is after all always summer somewhere.
