I really enjoyed dressing up when I was in Korea. Weather temp would drop til’ about 7 degrees so layering was a necessity. Hee. So fun! I took advantage of the situation and wore this outfit that I’ve been wanting to try for quite sometime now. So yes, it’s a bit androgynous. But I think the look’s quite great with soft wavy hair and a red lip. :)

Oh gosh. I officially love Korea. I never thought I would but I actually did! The sights, the history, the food, the street fashion, the shopping sites (!!)… I’d be happy to go back soon! In fact, I wish that I could go back very soon like next month. Oh if only! When we went there last week, the climate was cool but the the trees were still mostly green. We were actually hoping to experience orange trees and orange covered roads. Boo. But at least now we know what weeks to target next year! IF we go again next year. Heh.

This thick, oversized ivory turtleneck is a new fave! Doesn’t it make you want to snuggle? Hehe. It’s warm but at the same time airy too since it’s so loose. I actually wasn’t planning on bringing it anymore cause it’s so bulky (it took up one sixth of my luggage. Ugh.) In the end though, I’m glad that I did! It was just so right for that one cold, sunny day. :)

RIIR Ampersand Launch

I’m not one who often attends parties or events, but a couple of weeks back, I did attend the launch of Rags II Riches‘ latest collection entitled “Ampersand”. Rags II Riches (RIIR) is one of the local brands that I truly, genuinely enjoy supporting. A huge part of it is because of their cause to uplift our less fortunate mothers and families here in the Philippines. And well, of course, because they’ve got a whole selection of stylish handmade bags too!

Their latest collection was named “Ampersand” because it features a collection of convertible bags that can be used up to 3 different ways. (I mean, for real.) The bags actually quite intrigued me when I first saw the catalogue. And when I saw them live, I couldn’t help but applaud. Now that’s #proudlymadeinthephilippines! :)

You can drop by the RIIR shops in Glorietta or Power Plant or visit their Facebook page at: to view the Ampersand collection. Let’s support Pinoy!
