Blast to the Past.


"You're on a different road, I'm in the Milky Way
You want me down on earth, but I am up in space
You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch
You're from the 70's, but I'm a 90's bitch"

I love it!
Throwing it back to the 90s. This is such a 180 from my previous post. Haha! Part deux of my #HMLOVEPH OOTDs. (Dressing up is fun!) Comfortable shoes are the requirements this time.

Joie de vivre.


Rain is in the forecast so it was a chance to break out the sweater. Trouble is it gets a little difficult to take an acceptable shot. Here is an okay capture with a little help from the wind. Lucky! The other shots... Not so much. Haha!


A little break in the wind moment. This cute sweater is from H&M. And no surprise, it's black and white once more. Can't wait to wear this with the sleeves down in a cooler climate! And don't you just love pocket details?


Speaking of H&M, this is the first of the OOTDs I'll be posting for the H&M Philippines contest that's got everyone in a frenzy. Who wouldn't be? With such goodies as invites to their exclusive VIP night, gift card worth P10,000, etc. And the good news is, you don't have to be wearing H&M clothes in your OOTDs. They said it isn't a requirement. You can check the details on their Facebook or Twitter (@hmphilippines). It can be intimidating with so many fashion-savvy people that's going to go full out, but a girl can only try and hope (like mad!). But it's all in great fun!


Good luck to everyone! It will be great to see the different OOTDs!

Game Plan.

Sports. Sporty. Not exactly words you would associate with me. I've never looked at sports attire with enthusiasm aside from bomber jackets, university jackets, etc. (Jackets are a certain obsession of mine. Oh, the unfairness of it.) and the occasional sneakers. Maybe it's because growing up, we haven't exactly been exposed to examples of sporty chic that's been all the rage these days. Sportswear really didn't grab you like they do now. We just never thought we could elevate it to another level.  Well, how wrong we were. Just look at the recent flux of sportswear inspired chicness on runways. It's enticing a girl to change her mind. 

I still haven't really tried it. But here is Fanatics.com, a.k.a online sports apparel heaven, a.k.a the mother ship of online sports apparel. Go to their site and you'll know what I mean. Reminds me of that phrase, anything for the team! They have given me that nudge to at least explore my options. I am to choose a baseball hat from their MLB hats page and build a game day outfit since the baseball season is ongoing. Over 4,000 hat choices! You're sure to find something to show support for your team! (And a really cool accessory.) Let's not forget the other apparels you may want to have. (And probably should have.)

You may have already guessed though, I haven't got any favorite team or know anything about baseball but I couldn't pass up the challenge. It's still a lot of fun, dreaming up outfits and maybe imagining myself cheering with the crowd for my team. And getting to do it in style! Fashion and team spirit, a very exciting combination.

So anyways, here's what I came up with. I chose a Boston Red Sox scarlet hat. It's coz I love the vividness of its color. And also, I gravitate towards black and white (so it's no surprise I came up with this ensemble) so the scarlet would really complement them.



Game Plan.
Vera Moda collared crop top, Been Trill bomber jacket, H&M elastic waist shorts, Ash footwear, Alexander McQueen black crossbody purse, Frye black jewelry, LØMO ear cuff, Rare London sunnies 

Comfort is also what's on my mind as I came up with this ensemble. It's important to be able to move around. Shorts and comfortable shoes. A bomber jacket (Fave!), of course, that can't not be part of the outfit. Accessorizing (I can't not do it), but keeping it simple. And there you go.

Okay, I couldn't help it. I had to do another game day ensemble. (This is a bit addicting.) My second hat choice is a simple black New York Yankees fitted hat. 



Game Day.

Bouchra Jarrar layered collar vest, Modekungen tank top, H&M sweatpants, Fay 1 high heels, Alexander Wang envelope bag, Oliver Bonas sunnies, Michael Kors watch, Boohoo rings, Shaun Leane earrings
 
This ensemble is more on the chic side. Who says sweatpants can't be chic? I've wanted to try pairing sweatpants with heels. This gives me the push to try it even once. If I were a fan, I'd wear the number of my favorite player. I'm sure it's just not me. It's a great way to show support, yeah? I am also obsessed with vests so I feel like topping the look off with a long vest to keep it chic. I know I picked heels which might be a bit impractical but with a chunky heel I think it's okay. 

There are still so many hats that can go with so many outfits on Fanatics.com's hat page! Go check them out!
 
After this challenge, it really made me realize the reach and influence fashion has on our world these days. I'm sure before, not many will even think about dressing up for a game. Like dress up dress up. Jeans and t-shirt were just fine. But these days, it's a bit more different. And I like it. I'm one who loves dressing up always. So, yay for that! But still, in the end, it's all about what you like and want to wear. Sometimes the lines are all blurred because everyone's so manic about OOTDs. But you're dressing for you, not for them. 

We should all remember that.

And so I end this post. I had fun!

DSquared.


Denim on denim. A key fashion trend for fall. Never thought I'd ever try this look! Never say never, huh? That's what is so fun when it comes to fashion/dressing up. Trying out new things, expanding your horizons and such. And when it doesn't turn out right, at least you've captured the perfect moment to laugh over with friends in the future.


Oversized denim jacket from Zara. You can never have enough denim jackets. Haha! At least that's what I always say to justify my splurging. I'm obsessed with jackets. I can't help it.


And what else am I obsessed about these days? David Gandy. Lol. That was a nice segue, wasn't it? No? Okay. Haha! Obsessed is too intense a word. But it's David Gandy. I can't help it as well.

Chic Lines.


Yeah... The title makes no sense. Anyways, love this duster (could probably pass, right?) from H&M. My long search has finally resulted in an item I'd surely be keeping for a long time. It's light so not really going to make it a hardship wearing in our Manila weather.



Giraffe bangle from Banana Republic. Love!

The Classics.



 You can never go wrong with black and white. I think my closet is an explosion of blacks and whites lately. And where have I been? Love these Payless Comfort Plus by Predictions pumps. Just the right heel height and I can walk around for a long time without my feet ending up dead. Haha. I need to buy this in every color. Also, quite smitten with the Chanel perfume bottle clutch I discovered in Hong Kong.
