Must-Have Wardrobe Essentials for Every Fashionista

What exactly makes someone a fashionista? A true fashionista uses their wardrobe as a canvas to display what they perceive as art. Yes, clothing can be art! You can truly tell a lot about someone by how they dress. But while a true fashionista has her own unique collection of pieces and outfits to throw together, there are certain essentials every fashion-loving person needs in their closet. But first, what exactly makes a piece of clothing an essential?

A wardrobe essential is an article of clothing that is trend-proof, versatile, and an “outfit multiplier” according to The Chic Fashionista. An outfit multiplier is an article of clothing that allows you to create multiple outfits by mixing and matching. The best way to think about wardrobe essentials is to think of them as a blank canvas. Start with one piece and build your outfit from there. So just how many of the following wardrobe essentials do you have in your closet? 

Why Long Dresses are Perfect

Prom season is probably an occasion that high school students look forward to the most, especially those who are in their junior and senior year in secondary education. Back in the day, to get inspiration for what you would wear on prom night, we rely on magazines like Seventeen or Candy. I envy girls now who have the internet, blogs and Pinterest to use as a tool for them to get style inspirations. 

Some have their dresses made and some buy off-the-rack. I can’t say tho which is cheaper. But if you don’t have enough time you can always rely on online stores to get prom dresses at cheap price. I’ve browsed so many sites that offer dresses that are in-trend. So that’s also a good option if you’re on the look for something to wear for your upcoming prom festivities.

Fit Fashionista: Athleisure Style for Spring

A couple of seasons back, designers started talking about gym-to-office and après-sport, and we have to admit – nobody really took them seriously. Despite our skepticism, fashion finally managed to make peace with function, making athleisure the new casual. The incorporation of spandex, Lycra and other synthetic fibers into work-appropriate attire has contributed to creation of an entirely new fashion category. 

Although it has been around for some time now, many are still struggling to combine their personal style with this new-age trend. Let us help you with that – shape up and suit up, with this spring’s most popular athletic wear separates!

The Sunday Currently: Vol. 15

It feels so gloomy today because it’s been raining all night. I really don’t like it when it’s raining. For one I hate the cold weather, I mean, can’t it be just cool and not too cold? Though I must confess I got a good sleep. I slept for a good 12 hours this time around haha! This oversleeping on Saturdays is becoming a habit. It’s ok though, at least I am giving my body the rest it needs after a week of under-sleeping. The week that passed was such a busy one. I mean, it was only Wednesday and I felt like I had already worked 5 days. And talk about the Valentine’s Day too. Unfortunately, it fell on a weekday and on a pay day. So you can only imagine how heavy the traffic was. Good thing that I have foreseen it and left the house earlier than usual. 

I had so much fun last Sunday when I went to my officemate's house in Pateros. It was their town fiesta and it has been years since I got to experience any local festivities. We walked from their place to the main part of the town to meet one of our officemates and since a lot of people was there it was super hard to pass the streets. We got caught with the procession of people parading the statue of St. Martha so we were forced to walk behind it. Before we turned into a street to take a shortcut to my friend’s house, people started throwing snacks and we tried catching some. I didn’t catch one but my other officemate gave me one of his. There were also sidewalk vendors selling different kinds of stuff, Kirk and I was able to buy those rings you stick at the back of your phone as a holder. We got it  for only 20 pesos each! They usually sell them at 50 pesos to 100. So we were happy with that little purchase. And ooohhh we went to the local carnival too! Some of us gambled but I was so astonished with the old school Ferris wheel and octopus rides (but didn't get to ride them). After that we went back to Paola’s house and we ate, drunk, gambled and laughed our asses off until around 3:00 in the morning. Man that was soooo fun!

Btw, my internet connection sucks… it’s has been like this for a week now and won’t be repaired until next week. My gosh, is there any good internet connection left in the Philippines anymore? Or is it really that hopeless?!

Cozy Up In Cardigan and Outerwear

Brrrrr... It's been cold lately. Every time I wake up and have to take bath before going to work, I have to heat the water because if I don't it's as if I jumped into icy water. It's ok when I'm sleeping but when I'm on my way to work or working, I don't want getting cold. I personally don’t like a cold weather because of allergies. They seem to act up when the temperature is dropping.  

It's almost the end of February and Summer is just around the corner. But since the snow from the northern hemisphere is just melting the air becomes cold and even the countries lying in the tropical belt are experiencing a winter-like weather. Atleast this is how we can only get close to winter.
