Currently channeling monochrome looks (with a hint of pastel?), featuring my ultimate favorite and must have wardrobe essential: WHITE SNEAKERS. All caps is necessary for the intensity of my love for white sneakers… I featured a Bensimon pair simply because I’ve outworn all my white sneakers (I buy cheap ones) and a few weeks ago, I visited Common Thread in Rockwell for the A Style Fit For You contest where I had to dress up one lucky winner, Sharleene Solis, and while I was styling her I kept picking shoes that I loved (Luckily, we had the exact same style! Minimalist, laid back yet still chic) and I fell definitely in love with the way Bensimon sneakers looked. I wanted so many pairs, but alas, my wallet isn’t able to take it. I may also be a little biased, but when I found out that Bensimon is a French brand, I swooned and loved it even more. I want to walk the streets of Paris wearing a pair, because I so desperately want to be French, it’s insane. (Also, don’t give me that “Parisians don’t wear sneakers.” crap, because I saw a few of them… This is 2014, not all Parisians are snobby and brand conscious. Haha)
Also, apparently, my laid back lazy way of dressing is now considered very fashionable in the form of “Normcore”, and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this! Haha It’s interesting, it’s basically saying anyone can be a little fashionable now. If anyone sees me looking average, they can no longer say I don’t have style — because I’m NORMCORE. Harhar.
Originally I made this for Twitter/Instagram, but I decided to share it on my blog as well! I’ve been getting more and more excited about fashion lately, finally, after a year of shunning away anything fashion related because the last year of fashion school burned me out and to say the least, turned me off, too. It’s a long story that involves being overworked by and unprofessional and sometimes even unreasonable professors. But enough about that boring old story… I’m excited about fashion again, and tonight I’ll be attending the Suiteblanco, Sfera and Uno de 50 Spring/Summer 2015 Philippine Fashion Week show! I’m so excited to cover it, and hopefully get enough photos to blog about it! (My attention span is close to zero, so let’s hope I don’t get carried away and completely forget to use my iPhone camera!)
What current looks are you loving lately? Share them with me, as I’m always looking for new fashion inspiration!
