Love Day

I recall reading a tweet about a viral fast food TVC. The tweet goes something like, “The TVC reminds us that February isn’t only for the couples in love, but also for the people who chose to love in silence.” Aww…♥ Just sharing with you guys.

Anyway this Valentine, I’m wearing a shade lighter than red (which I prefer ‘coz I don’t really wear red). This is a casual look if you’re going on a date with mom or, with your girlfriends.☻

v_002 v_003 v_004

But if you’re going on a romantic date with someone, go get a dressy one.

La, la, la… LOL

v_013 v_014

Seriously, there are so many reasons to smile this Valentine.☻ Flowers from someone, a date with your friends / family, a short conversation with your crush, your playful pet, text messages from people greeting you a happy heart’s day, you getting a good night / day sleep, all those simple things in life… So, just smile.☻

“Shoepaholic”

“Oh, I don’t need another pair of shoes!”, said no woman ever.♥

I shared with you guys the Visual Shoe Dictionary before, showing us the different types of shoes – from the rocking thigh high boots, to the comfiest flip-flops. Now on this blog post, I will be sharing with you some of what I have… So, scroll down button please!

Lita Shoes. The higher the heel, the closer to heaven they say… D’ya agree with that? I am!☻ High heels boost a woman’s confidence. The right pair of high heels can make a woman look taller and gives the illusion of slimmer legs – making her look and feel sexier. Most of these shoes are, urgh, painful! But there are some that are comfy. Like this Lita shoes I own.☻

Litas from Forever 21.

Pumps. These are lovely!♥ They look good on you ‘coz they add an extra few inches to your height while prettifying your feet. (Just don’t walk or dance with them all night long as you may end up getting blisters on your feet. Ouch!)

SHOEPAHOLIC_002

Blue pumps from People Are People.

SHOEPAHOLIC_003

Maroon pumps from St. Francis Square.

Gladiator Shoes. They look sexy and appealing especially the ones that are stiletto-types. Make sure they are exposed when you wear them so that you can show them off.

SHOEPAHOLIC_004

Gladiators from People Are People.

Peep-Toe. Put this pair on if you want to show-off your pretty-polished toenails as well as if you want to wear something dressier than your typical slippers or sandals. PRETTY good choice!☻

SHOEPAHOLIC_005

Peep-toes from Greehills.

Kitten-Heel Shoes. The 1 to 1.5-inch heels are just right for a day in the mall without turning ON your “tiis-ganda” mode.☻

SHOEPAHOLIC_006

Kitten-heels from Centropelle.

Ankle Boots. During a cold weather, it’s nice to know that you have a pair of boots that can warm your feet while still looking chic. What I have here is a gamuza peep-toe type!

SHOEPAHOLIC_007

Ankle boots – thrifted.

Wedge. This pair will add a couple of inches to your height without giving your feet the “pagoda” feel. LOL.

SHOEPAHOLIC_008

Wedge from Wade.

Platform Shoes. High sole that elevates the feet by several inches. In platform shoes, both the toe and heel are elevated. I usually use mine during the rainy season to keep my feet dry.

SHOEPAHOLIC_009

Platforms from St. Francis Square.

Now you want some comfy shoes?☻ Here they come!

Loafers. These are my ultimate fave! I like the idea of wearing something comfortable and stylish at the same time. These are best for your casual OOTDs, but I wear mine on almost all of my outfit. Versatility it is.♥

SHOEPAHOLIC_010 SHOEPAHOLIC_011

Loafers from Parisian.

Oxford Shoes. Just like loafers, they are comfortable, stylish, and classic. Perfect for short shorts!

SHOEPAHOLIC_012

Oxfords from Jellybean.

Sandals. Light footwear that are often open type and have straps attaching the sole to the foot. Click here to see my D-I-Y post.

SHOEPAHOLIC_013

Sandals from Parisian.

Flats. Thank God they exist.♥

SHOEPAHOLIC_014

Flats from Celine.

Flip-Flops. Your feet will surely love them ‘coz (haayyy…) they can breathe! This would be the comfiest pair your feet can wear. And the most stylish way to wear them is by making sure your toenails are clean and pretty-polished (I know all girls are with me on this one).☻

SHOEPAHOLIC_015

Flip-flops from Terra & Agua.

Rubber Shoes. Up for some running? Then there wouldn’t be any other shoes I can recommend here on my list but this (pretty in pink) rubber shoes. Sweet but tough.♥

SHOEPAHOLIC_016

Rubber shoes from Nike.

I found out that Zalora has an amazing selection of stylish shoes for women to choose from. Click here for you to know what I mean.

And if you still need help determining the type of pairs you have, Steve Madden’s Shoe Glossary would be a huge help.

Now, which pair would you like to grab and wear today?☻

Maxi Generation

We invaded the malls of Baclaran couple of months ago to do some nifty shopping.

MAXI_001

Anyhow stores in Baclaran peddle cheap, but great finds. It’s an ideal shopping place for my fellow recessionistas out there.☻

And this maxi dress is one of my best buys, simple yet charming. I love how open and exposed the neckline is – perfect for wearing chunky and colorful neck pieces.

MAXI_002 MAXI_003

So, I put on two necklaces here.

MAXI_004 MAXI_005

Let’s call the first set “Leopardized”. I used less accessories here as the leopard detail itself is shouting STRIKING already. LOL.

MAXI_006

Necklace from Eastwood City.

MAXI_007

Ring from Girl Shoppe.

MAXI_008

Belt from Genevieve Gozum.

MAXI_009

Bag from Celine.

MAXI_010

I used chunky accessories on the next set – bib necklace, sporty watch, and big rings.

MAXI_011

Necklace from Eastwood City.

MAXI_012

Sporty Gallant Watch from Tomato.

MAXI_013

Rings from Girl Shoppe, Forever 21, and Robinson’s Department Store.

MAXI_014

Accessories can make or break an outfit. It can prettify a plain outfit and ruin the loveliest dress you have. So make sure you accessorize well.☻

MAXI_015

Which set of accessories suits my maxi by the way?☻
