What I Wore | Blue Skater Skirt

I obviously love blue!

Wore this outfit at the Bobson Japan launching. Bobson just opened its first boutique in the Philippines and yes its specifically here in our city. Was invited for the launching and media preview and you can read more about it here.

It’s my first time to wore this skater skirt that was given to me by my friend. I match the skirt with a button down top which I got from Romwe and heels for a complete semi-formal look.

I should have known this skirt are comfy. Its been given to me for awhile and just worn it now. One of the reason is that I am actually waiting for the perfect time to wear it with those killer heels (which is in color blue too…). I also thought because of its pearl details it kinda give the skirt a semi-formal-look perfect. I like the feeling when your wearing the skirt because it makes me feel so lady-like. Well definitely try it with my boots next time…

How about you? How do you wear your skater skirts? What’s the favorite shoe you always wear with it?

Time Travel & Shadowhunters

Done watching Rubinot and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones…

My internet a bit slow so thought of writing a new blogpost. However, after minutes of just staring at the dashboard and no words written… I stopped. I have so many pending post to share yet cant find the words to say, as usual. Earlier was happy because just this week ive written 3 post in 3 days and now Ive break it.

Anyways, to keep out boredom I watched movie instead online. Thats when I found Rubinot. Was curious on its title and incomplete summary…

Rubinot is a fantasy German movie about time traveling. Dont worry its in English though.
The movie was good but left me with so many question in the end. I do hope that in the part 2 they can answer those because I just thought the movie end in a nonsense way.

Next movie I watched is the City of Bones. I saw the trailer of this last year…. Arrhhggg!! I regret not watching this on the big screen. This movie is so great that im wishing for a part 2.
The movie is all about shadow hunters — a half-human, half-angel mortals. They chase demons. In the movie vampires, witches and werewolf also present.

I just love movies about vampires, witches, shadowhunters and the likes. Cant get over and still would like to watch for more movies in this genre. Can you recommend me any great movies or TV series in this genre? And whats your favorite movie?

Drop it in the comment section below. Thank you in advance.

P.S. After watching the movie I wrote this post but then my blog had some trouble that I cant login. So I had to wrote this on my mobile’s notepad to post when my blog’s dashboard is back.  

Nine West Shoes Wishlist

Was browsing online for some fashion inspirations and landed into a page of shoes from Nine West. Since Christmas is fast approaching thought of writing my wishlist for Nine West shoes. Who knows I’ll receive one of this shoes from Santa…

Aside from boots, I love strappy flats that’s why I own a few of this babies. I am attracted to strappy heels but I don’t own any of this yet so im really digging to atleast own one or two sooner. Hopefully any of this Nine West babies.

Bet this two are perfect for events and parties.

Leather Heels with Ankle Cuff
Laced Heels
And this two pairs of flats are for stylish casual wear. I just love slip-on flats and zip fastening at back heel because it’s so comfortable and easy to wear. The reason most of my flats are in this style.
Thin Strapped Sandals
Studded Sandals
So why Nine West? Because I love their designs. Most of their shoes are on trend and stylish perfect fit for any casual and formal wear. I’ve also read a lot of good reviews on the quality and how affordable they are, close to a designer pair of shoes. To add further more interest… Are you a Gossip Girl fan? I have also known that Gossip Girl uses a lot of Nine West accessories, be it shoes or bags.

Okay, so Im already advertising Nine West to much… I just hope my ‘style fairy goddess’ will guide Nine West to read this post of mine and grant one or all of my shoe wishlist. By the way, Im not paid to promote their brand… Im just wishing hard to be their brand ambassadress that is.

In case you’re interested on the shoes I have shared, I found a discount coupons at iPrice Shop that you can use in purchasing on online shopping site like Zalora.

What I Wore | Floral Maxi Dress

I finally got the chance to wear this beautiful floral maxi dress that I got from I attended 2 events that day and the latter event requires formal wear. I opted for this maxi dress because it can be worn on both, casual and formal events.

In the first event I attended, it's a celebration of CDOBloggers 6th anniversary. I just added a denim coat to achieve that casual look.

For the second event, its the launching of SM City CDO Christmas centerpiece. This time I took off the denim coat. I originally plan to wear blue heels, but then decided to change into those blue flats because I’ve learned my lessons well when attending launching events… It takes a lot of walking and standing! I surely won't last long in heels. 
Flats may not be appropriate for formal events but when I and my blogger friends arrived at the event proper, some others even wore casual outfits. My blue flats were saved! XD

The Great China Circus

Received a complimentary tickets for The Great China Circus featuring acrobats of Hebei and my friend and I watched it earlier at Limketkai Mall. We had fun on most of the amazing acts that was presented. Most particularly the Wushu, chair stacking, plate spinning, vase and table juggling, candle balancing (contortionist) and the romantic aerial dance. I was expecting more on that aerial dance though… It was kinda “bitin” for me!
Took some photos and recorded some videos of the show but will follow the video because I still need to edit it. Meanwhile enjoy the photos! ^_^

What I Wore | Camouflage

Mentioned on my previous post about me playing on the Spin the Roleta game of Ororama Bigating Pangkabuhayan Part 2. Good thing the in-charge already gave me a tip to wear shorts or pants because if I wear dress or skirt the wind might blow away while playing the game. ^_^
This camouflage printed sheer top which I got from is so comfy. I just love wearing this specially on casual days like this day.

I dont know if you notice this but Im getting a bit bigger. (>o<) Im loving it actually!
