Style Diary: Mariel W .
Style Diary brings you the best style muses in the blogosphere. We went to the Philippines once and read Stephanie’s Style Diary. It was so good that we had to just go back once more! What can I say? Filipinos know their Style 101:) Today we’ll be meeting feisty chic Mariel W whom you probably best know as The Wicked Ying. Let’s get cracking.
Tell us a little about yourself…I’m Mariel W. better known as Wicked Ying in the cyberspace. I’m a 20 something small town girl from the southern part of the Philippines. I have a day job which is mainly based online. That being said, I have grown to enjoy “blogging” as a past time or merely a break from an all-day work. I recently finished my 365 looks challenge wherein I post outfits on a daily basis. I was able to surpass a year of nonstop blogging about what I call as LOTD or Look of the Day.
Wow. That must have been quite the challenge. What would you say best describes your look? I don’t have a certain description about my style. I’m all about keeping it simple and comfortable. I can dress up girly to edgy and all else in between. Mostly though, you’ll see me in tank tops and denim shorts and a pair of kicks that I very much love. I basically enjoy dressing up and sharing about my look with the “wicked people”.
All time favourite shops/clothing brands. That would have to be my friend’s shop, PINKaholic. Forever 21 is a favourite too. They have everything….really! Apart from that, I enjoy shopping online from various online shops that I find in Multiply or Facebook.
My beauty secret is? BB Cream. It’s what I use daily. I put it on my face before I dab on powder foundation. It kinda acts as a concealer. And oh, lotion with sunblock is a must too! I never leave the house without using those two. 🙂
Favourite make-up brands. I’m not much of a make up girl. But I use Korean products since they’re known for BB creams. Maybelline, NYX, and Revlon are my go to brands too. My greatest beauty find would have to be what my friend suggested, a brow set from MAC. I’m all about tamed and arched eyebrows. Haha!
What is the most beautiful thing about you ? That might have to be my skinny legs. I wear shorts all the time so I guess that could translate into me “accentuating” them. Lol! I’m in a love hate relationship with my legs. They’re skinny enough that I don’t fit in most pants but I’ve grown to live with that.
Any insecurities? My uber small feet. That’s my biggest issue. I’m a size 5, maybe smaller. It pisses me off whenever I browse shopping sites that don’t have my size. It’s always size 6 up. How do I deal with it? I stuff corks and gel cushions in my shoes so they fit better. Moreover, I veer from visiting sites that offers US-based products. I know I have no chance finding shoes there. Sad right?!
Sad, especially if you’re a shoe-holic. And you do look like one! Haha. What is your best music track? Zero 7’s Destiny. It’s sums up my boyfriend and I’s love story. Lol!
Comment: ‘If you got it, flaunt it’ … As long as you know what to flaunt and how to do it, why not!
If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you? Well, I’m sure it’s going to be a boring movie! Haha! I don’t have any movie in mind, but I’d gladly let Rooney Mara play as ME! Love her in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie! 😉
Haha! Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why? My shoesies? Or maybe my pile of shorts?! I can’t decide! Can’t live without them clothes and shoes! Lol!
Your all time fashion icon is… Too many to mention but my current fave is Amber Saylor. Lots of cool people at Lookbook.nu I tell you!
I know right? That place is crawling with style muses! Link us to your blog and site so we can read about all your upcoming challenges.
What’s your advice to young people? Stop worrying. Enjoy the moment. Life’s too short to live with constraints (and rules)!
Well said. Free spirits rule! Hope you have been inspired by the looks and words of Mariel. We all know she is the Wicked Ying but how bad ass were her looks? Sound off in the comments space below.
Stick around for more style.
