I’m 24. I was born and raised in the Philippines but immigrated here in the states when I was in college. I graduated College with 3 degrees and Latin honors. Although I took the science and management during my college days, my heart has always belonged to fashion and styling. My hobbies: arts and crafts like making some of my own clothes, painting/drawing, and photography. What is your dressing style?
My style? really depends on what I feel that day, but majority of my looks are influenced by the past decades (1950’s-1980’s). I always try to mix up a piece of what is trending in the fashion community and pieces that are inspired by the old days (thrifted or made by yours truly). Which brands or designers ‘speak to you’ the most?
a) For clothing I would say Balmain.
b) For shoes, It would be Giuseppe Zanotti. Any beauty secrets?
a) I would say I don’t eat greasy food after sunset.
Favourite make-up brands.
a) MAC and Urban Decay.
What is the most beautiful thing about you ?
a) Perhaps my smile? my loved ones and friends always point out how my smile brightens up their day, they say it’s contagious. ^_^
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be and why?
a) Marilyn Monroe, She is my biggest style icon. Not only that but she was talented, smart, and not ashamed of being herself despite of the controversies that were happening around her. She embraced her body, femininity, and kept her beautiful smile to those who tried to pull her down.
-Your favourite music track would be…?
a) Now this is a tough one, because I do listen to all types of music. I’ll just say, “the way you make me feel” by the king of pop MJ! What is your favourite trend right now?
a) NEONS! It’s 80’s fashion all over again with all the bright colors, studs, and spikes. Comment: ‘If you got it, flaunt it’…
a) If you got it flaunt it, I do believe in that when it comes to embracing one’s body by dressing it up to what compliments it appropriately. I mean when am I supposed to flaunt it when I’m all old, saggy, and wrinkly? life is too short to hide what your mommah gave you (of course, when flaunting it, flaunt it in a “classy way”) lol. If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you?
a) haha maybe in the romantic comedy genre, Title? The Thriftaholic
b) who would play me? Anna Faris (She’s the funniest actress ever!). -Your top 5 must-haves.
a) Lip balm
e) fabulous pair of shoes. -Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why? a) My SHOES, I love them too much! Your all time fashion icon is…
a) Marilyn Monroe. Your favourite quote/saying a) Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.” – Alexander Wang Link to Eteclea: My Url’s:
