The Rockstar in Me

Here's an outfit that I wore at Oxygen's holiday collection launch at PFW last Friday. I always make sure to dress up according to the occasion and like what I said on my last post, I thought that oxygen was more of a men's brand. I didn't wanna go all out girly when I would be watching a fashion show that mostly included clothing pieces for guys. So I decided to unleash my inner rockstar. Yes, underneath my soft voice (that I use most of the time) and reserved personality, there's a rockstar in me. On rare days, I would choose Linkin Park and Paramore songs over my preferred artists and just blast loud music in my room! I wanted to channel that side of me for this outfit. It's fun to experiment sometimes! :))

What better way to transform yourself into a rockstar than wearing a black outfit? But to keep things interesting, I used other colors such as white balance out the colors on the outfit and red to still keep it classy and not lose all the girly-ness in me. Animal pirnts scream "FIERCE" but lace screams "I AM SO SWEET". It's an ironic combination, more of like rockstar tamed version!

Oxygen Holiday Collection 2012

I've always thought oxygen was more of a men's brand! Seeing their holiday collection for 2012, I was proven wrong. I fell in love with more than a few pieces like a polka dotted peplum top, a skirt with galactic details and pants in the brightest and yummiest colors. Oxygen's holiday collection is all about rich colors, classic silhouettes and trendy prints! More than excited to see this pieces out already! :)

Outfit post to follow! :)

First Day Blues

There are a few stories I'd like to share from the first day of my junior year. But here's one that stands out the most. One of my major classes was assigned a terror professor. Some of my friends suggested we drop the subject and go to another section. Although a big part of me wanted to do that, there's this small voice telling me, "but that's like giving up, settling for something easier." Since it will hopefully be my last whole year, my motto is "fun, fearless female" and I decided to welcome the subject with open arms. I even volunteered to be a group representative. I figured that a terror professor would be more challenging and challenges would make me so much better at what I'll do in the future. But then adjustment time came, and the academic assistant kind of advised me to change my section so that I could get another critical major class.I find it funny that just when I decided to embrace the challenge, it slips away for me! But I know my challenge will come sooner or later! I'm ready for it! :)

 Here's a fuss free outfit on my first day. I waited for five excruciating hours in line for adjustment and this outfit could not have been more perfect! I didn't wanna dress up too much since it's the first day of school. Maybe in the coming days? :))

The Ramp Holiday Collection 2012

Last Tuesday, I got to watch The Ramp at PFW. The Ramp's holiday collection will be composed of pencil skirts with scarf prints, dresses with unexpected cuts, leggings with bold colors and animal prints, peplum tops, plain and printed maxis, as well as palazzo pants. Sheer is still in and color blocking is still the trend. All looks are finished off with sky high printed wedges or Miu Miu inspired curved heels. I'll let the pictures do the talking! 

Excited to see these in stores already! :)
