After a Hurricane, comes a Rainbow

Happy New Years EVE!!! Emphasize on the EVE, we still have a few more hours till we say our goodbyes to the year 2010 and welcome 2011. For this entry, I wanted to write a much more personal text-y write up, but I thought maybe pictures would simply summarize my year. I just wanna wish everyone a Happy Happy New Year! Let's all wrap this year up with our own resolutions, and hopefully stick to it!

A major part of 2010 for me was Glee/Kurt Hummel. If only Glee came out when I was in high school.

I also wanna thank you guys for all the support you've given Barefoot Prince Charming & [FHQ] Manila this past two months. Thank you for all the comments! It means the world to me & the [FHQ] team!!! 

As for now thats my New Year's entry. It wasn't too much and I hope I got my message across! I am beyond thankful for all the blessings I have received this year, the accomplishments I've done and the people I have met. It's been a splendid lovely year! I hope all the best for all of you this coming 2011! 2010 was a good year, but I have this gut feeling 2011 will be killer and to die for!!! 

For now, I'll be getting ready for a night of fun with my beloveds!

This Season...

Since it's Christmas, I wanna show you guys what I'm up to or loving at the moment!
1. Bangles- or as I'd like to call them 'Mangles.' I've always been into accessories, and I've realized that bangles were such a steal! I mean a fistful for 199-400? It spices up any outfit, a plain white shirt and a fistful of these babies, will get me a long way! Thanks Rachel Zoe! 

2. Glee Marathon/Christmas Songs- Last Christmas, I had a marathon of Gossip Girl episodes. This time I wanna have a marathon to the show, most of us fell in love with. As for Christmas songs, I've been listening to the playlist I created last year, and of course the Taylor Swift and Glee Christmas album. Get into season everybody!!! 4 more days!!!

3. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show- My friend and I had a marathon of the shows from 2008-2010. The ladies are just BEAUTIFUL, and a definite MUST WATCH every year! My favorites: Adriana Lima & Miranda Kerr

4. Cupcakes- I received a box of these babies from a friend, and they are just the perfect gifts for anybody and stomachs!!! I can feel the Holiday weight coming.

5. The Rachel Zoe Project- Definite must watch too! It shows that being a stylist isn't an easy job, but Rachel does kick some ass in this series! I'm still on season 2, but it's just pure love!!!

6. Chai Tea- My drink for all seasons. I usually get it iced, but since the weather has been quite cold hot chai tea would be the perfect combination with any book. 

7. Cannibal - Ke$ha- The songs are just sick!!!

8. Cat Eye shades- I found a great alternative to the Alexander Wang shades. Since my Mickey Mouse shades fell apart, I replaced it temporarily with a pair from Forever 21.

9. Lauren Conrad Style- I finally have time to read this gem of a book. 

what are you guys loving or up to?

Sometimes The Accessory Makes The Clothes

FINALLY! Finals are OVER, the term is OVER and now it's time for Christmas break!!! I've been waiting for this day since the term started. A lil bit dramatic noh? It's just Christmas is my favorite holiday. Well today went smoothly, had dinner with the family to celebrate Lolo and Lola's 50th at Greenbelt. Met up with Inna for a bit too! This entry will just be a mini outfit post!

This is what I wore to the last day of school and to dinner! I wanted to wear something simple, but add a little color and ACCESSORIES!

What I Wore: Jacket given by a friend(Luigi), Forever 21 jeans and accessories, Payless Shoes Moccasins, F&H bag

Now a celebration isn't complete with a treat. After dinner, I was planning to purchase a pair of espadrilles, but sadly they were out of stock. They're gonna replenish on the 25th. Instead my tita and I decided to check out Aranaz. I've been dying to get this bracelet from them from the RIIR(Rags to Riches) collaboration. I was already braising myself that it would be out of stock too, but just my luck there were only two left!!! Special special thanks to my tita for it!!! Here are some pics!!!

The bracelet to me is just such a statement piece because of it's color combination. Provides such ethnicity to it's design, that it turns into a stand out piece! It certainly can add a splash of color to an outfit! Plus it's for a really good cause too!

BTW! I was left in shock today, seeing that a JUICY COUTURE STORE HAS OPENED!!! MY LIFE IS COMPLETE! I'm a sucker for their merchandise!!! hahaha

Till the next entry again!

Style Icon for A Day

Another late late late update!!! I've been soooo busy with school to the point I've been very inconsistent with my blogging. Sorry for that, but I'm quite happy since Christmas is on the way and FINALS ARE FINALLY DONE! Well sort of I just gotta submit my project for FILLUS 1. On this entry I'll be blogging about last week's Fashion Thursday. The theme was Manila Fashion Icons, so it was really exciting!!! Now I was suppose to be Raymond Gutierrez, cause we wanted to be the Preview team. I decided to go the other way and come as my real style icon Carlos Concepcion. I had my whole look figured out the day before!

My Peg for my outfit was what Carlos wore to a Garage Magazine event

What I Wore: Leather Jacket, Topman shirt, Lee black denims, Doc Martens

Patricia Prieto was Liz Uy. This was her peg.

wore: Outfit from Forever 21

Only 9 more days till Christmas and a wish list never hurts!!!
1. Forever 21 Gift Certificates- Actually anything from F21 would be great!!! I have this thing every Christmas where you gotta shop for a 2011 wardrobe, New Year means new clothes!!! Accessories, shoes, and everything in between!

2. Gossip Girl Season 3 box set- This would be perfect for a lazy day, nothing better than some Chai and some Blair and Chuck. A mus for this coming break!!!

3. Combat Boots- Any brand would do, but I would die for a new pair!!!

4. Mulberry 'Alexa' Bag- A DREAM COME TRUE!!! I actually wanna star investing in one, but that might be hopeless with my habits. I'm planning to find an alternative instead!!! A satchel would be just fine!!!

5. Style A to Zoe by Rachel Zoe- I DIE! I have been on a Rachel Zoe craze! A definite must for another lazy day! I've gotta get this to add to my collection of books! Hoping to read this and continue with Lauren Conrad style!!! Chai would also be a great addition again!

6. Cannibal Album by Ke$ha- It's just a MUST!!!

7. More Skinnies- My favorite cut of jeans! I swear, I can NEVER have too many pair of jeans!!! A new set would be "buh-na-nas" for next year!!!

8. Fur Vest- I have been dreaming for the longest time to own something of pure fur. Faux of course!!! Another must for next year of course!!!

9. A Panther Ring- Just like Rachel Zoe! I have an Owl, but it's as fierce as a panther of course! Actually aside from this I'd love for more accessories! They are the key to an outfit sometimes. ;)

There you have it! My wish list for this Christmas! 

Thats all for now!!! I'll try to blog tomorrow again or this weekend! Hopefully feature December finds! I guess ta ta for now!!!

Carnivore, Animal, I am a Cannibal

On the bright side, it's finally December! The Glee & Taylor Swift Christmas albums has been playing over and over for the past few days. Mainly Kurt Hummel and Blaine's rendition of Baby It's Cold Outside. Anyways, for this entry I'll be updating on last week's Fashion Thursday, Forever 21 and FHQ's LAUNCH! So major squared entry ahead!

Such as skinny jeans for as low as 375,originally 495, a pair of olive green pants from 21 Men, and a Minnie Muse necklace! Hopefully I'll get to visit again before Christmas hits! I remember being young and going to Toys R Us and running around getting whatever I see. Forever 21 is my new Toys R Us.

Alas!!! The Fashion Headquarters!!! The website my friends(Guia, Patricia, Danika, Nicky, Ingrid) and I have worked on is finally out!!! This project is definitely one of the greatest things that happened to me this year. We started out as friends, and now we put together a blog! Wherein we share one common interest... FASHION(rocket science no?) and everything in between. I hope all of you guys take the time to visit the site! It would mean the world to us! Don't forget to show some love too!!!

The Everyday Bag

Time for another entry!!! Recently, I've been visiting Folded & Hung. Their designs have always been fashion forward. Especially after PFW. Once I was able to find a pair of drop crotch shorts. Then the Givenchy inspired headband. Then recently, I found a bag! I actually saw it the day I purchased the headband. I knew I had to get it! The bag is pretty simple, black, silver and has a matte leather-ish feel. The beautiful/fierce part is that it has a strap that has... spikes! It basically is an alternative to me. It's similar to the Givenchy Nightingale bag! I crowned it as my new everyday bag. The type you could just put your stuff in and go. No need to match it with any outfit! Plus, my bag organizer fits in the bag perfectly! F & H for sure will get a lot of visits from me now that it's Christmas. The wallets are out! Their accessories to clothing are simply LOVE! Plus it's very wallet friendly!

The bag actually looks like the Givenchy Nightingale came to hook up with the Alexander Wang's Coco duffel bag.

The Dream/Fairytale Come True
I'm sure some of you heard Taylor Swift's concert here in Manila. This isn't fashion related or anything, but I just can't express how excited I am for this concert. I've been waiting for her to come here ever since. I've been listening to her music since day 1. From teardrops on my guitar to tied to together with a smile to love story to mine. There's just something about her music that could have made things different in high school. If it wasn't for her I'd probably be lost. Cheeseball grater much I have to express the excitement for this!!! News reports though say that it was sold out. Hearing this made me panic, so I decided to get the affordable tickets first! I'm still waiting for the lower box seats to go on sale, so I'm crossing my fingers and praying!!! I can seriously see myself on that day!!! 

I guess and hope I'll see some of you guys then! Still a few more months to go though, but let's all get ready for a magical night/fairytale, no matter what seat/location we are in the coliseum!!! :)

Will hopefully feature the next SoFA fashion thursday on my next entry!!! Animal prints here weee goooo!!!!

Get The Look 1

As promised, I was gonna post a get the look entry. I compiled some looks using polyvore inspired by the last entry. Since the theme was rocker chic, you'll be seeing a LOT of blacks. The set of looks you'll be seeing are inspired by the last entry. Plus a look inspired by Effy Stonem from Skins!

My Look

Inspired by: Patricia Prieto

Inspired by: Guia Alvendia

Inspired by: Nicky Roa

Inspired by: Effy Stonem 

Now I won't expound on the style or inspiration for each look. I think most of it speaks for itself. I'll try to post an entry like this every week for every Fashion Thursday. Looks I like and an inspiration. 

A little update! The FHQ shoot was simply fab. Thats all I can say. Watch out for December 1! ;)

The Inner Momsen

Study like a Rockstar was SoFA's weekly fashion thursday's theme. Honestly, this would have to be one of my favorite themes for a fashion thursday so far. A lot came in black(obviously), studs, crosses, spikes and etc. It's like everybody burst of Jenny Humphrey/Taylor Momsen and Kate Lanphear. I was able to pick a couple of looks that I loveddd. My look was definitely inspired by Elle's Style Director Kate Lanphear and Effy Stonem from Skins. I have always enjoyed how they stacked their bracelets and had a simple ensemble(kate) to go with it. Plus the trends they set isn't as expensive to follow. You could just go to Pop Culture, and automatically morph your wrists into Kate or Effy. From bangles to studs to jelly bands. Rings would be a nice addition too. Basically it was all black, silver and a touch of old gold.

My Inspiration

Favorite Looks:
Nicky Roa
Wore: Headband from Bangkok, Vintage top and scarf, Peace Love Fashion Pants, Forever 21 wedges

Guia Alvendia
Wore: Zara leather jacket, accessories from Hongkong, Forever 21, Aldo, Target tights, Parisian wedges/booties, dress from Eastwood

Wore: outfit from Forever 21 

What I Wore:
Folded and Hung spiked headband, People are People jacket, Lee black denims, Doc Martens, accessories from Mia Casa, Paris Hilton, Human, Pop Culture.

Thats all for now! I will be featuring a get the look entry, hopefully by tomorrow or this weekend. Might help bring out the inner Effy, Kate or Jenny in you! 

Technically today since it's 1 am, FHQ will be having their first photo shoot!!! Watch out!!!
