you'll look back and you won't believe.

I'm really sorry!! I haven't been able to post any of my own fashion pictures (aka the weekly fashion thing I said I'd do) because there's something wrong with the memory card of my camera, so I can't take pictures properly. :( So in the mean time, I'll have to stick to desire-posts. Haha. 
I visit Forever21's Facebook regularly to check out the new stuff they have in store. And here are a few things they have that I really really like. 

 It's really hard to get tank tops that aren't low cut and aren't too loose in the arms area that you have to layer and wear something under. In the Philippines, with all the heat and frustration from the heat, it really is uncomfortable having on so many layers of clothing. This tank isn't low, it's got a great color, and design!

 This is a really cute tulle skirt. It's this deep melon red sort of type, and it's really easy to match things with. :)
 I love the design of the dress. The folding on top makes it look really cool and unique, and the flower makes it more formal.

I've always wanted lace tank tops. I mean, okay, you have to wear another tank top under, but man, the design and the color is really awesome. <3 it's nice to have lace in different areas, the back, the sleeves, the arms, completely striped in lace...

 LOVE this skirt. It's got a really unique design by having a straight skirt under and a loose, frilly type wiht a bow over. <3
I need animal tops. I mean, I don't have any birds, butterflies, dogs, nor cats. I'm kind of deprived those kinds of things. This is a really cute tank. 

One of my favorite outfits they set up in the store! :)

So, all of these photos are straight from ! :)
Writing again soon! And hopefully, I get my camera fixed.

oh, this has gotta be the good life.

Hey guys. So second quarter is starting. Things aren't too heavy yet, but the project ideas and deadlines and brainstorming is kind of pressuring, so that'll be a concern for my blogging. But I'll try to post as much as I can. 
Anyway, I was flipping through an old magazine issue, and I came across this. It came from Metro's April 2010 issue. 
It's a 4-page spread of mix-and-match fashion. They get a certain item and accessorize the item to make it appropriate for certain events, times of the day. It's a really interesting idea:
pp. 104-105

There are four different outfits made for the item: day, night, corporate and travel.
For day, anything that's cool for the eyes under the sun. It needs to be comfortable and easy to walk in, because usually the day is when we relax and walk around, do errands, etc.
For the night, it's well, the typical night life. Partying, go out on dinners and family events, needing to look formal and dressed up.
For corporate, that's technically work. Business. The outfit needs to be appropriate for work, classic and the right style.
As for travel, the main element is comfort. That's really all you have to think about first: comfort. When travelling, you'll be walking around, and sitting down for long hours, waiting, shopping, sight-seeing, exploring... It needs to be stylish yet comfortable.

pp. 106-107

I'm thinking of doing something like this for my blog. Every week, I'll choose a random item from my closet, and accessorize to create four different outfits: for the day, for the night, for school (because I don't work in places like offices), for travel, and for church (because I go to church regularly, every Sunday, so I have to think up of appropriate outfits for that too).

So keep reading! I will post this in a few days (or less!). I'll have it up by this week. :)
I think I'll call it "That's the Key! (Fashion Mix)". Haha. Huzzah.
