On Repeat

Repeating clothes because I can. :) The more get I get out of a piece, the better. From the years that I’ve been in fashion I’ve learned that the best pieces in my closet are not the most remarkable. They are the ones that are most reliable. Do you agree? These are the pieces that are often used, abused (and somewhat bruised hehe) This turtleneck and these flats are examples of what I find most useful and helpful in my own closet. And lately, this midi skirt too. I can really rely on them to make me look and feel confident whenever. Don’t think I’ll ever let them go. :) How about you? What are your favorite pieces?

Weekend Fair

Hey guys! I’m back! Sorry for the recent lack of updates. Last week was such a busy week for us! Our shop Nava got listed to be part of The Carousel Caravan Arts Fair at UP Town Center so we had our hands full. Anyway, for those of you who dropped by the fair yesterday, thank you! :) Sorry wasn’t able to take pictures. It was supposed to last until today, but due to the unexpected downpour this morning, we had to close. :/ I think they’re planning to reschedule it though. I just hope the next will have a better turnout.

Anyway! This is what I wore. Booth setup involves a lot of moving around so I had to make sure I was comfortable. Wore my boyfriend jeans with a more feminine top for good contrast, then lace up sandals and a colorful bead necklace for a more festive fair vibe. Brought with me my Aranaz Carrie Tote as well cause it’s so practical and pretty. It’s so organic and “outdoorsy”. I love it!

Vintage Finds

My style can be so retro sometimes. Like I love old fashioned silhouettes and I enjoy wearing cool vintage especially those from my mom’s closet cause, 1- they’re free, and 2- they’re always awesome cause she has impeccable taste. Here I’m wearing two vintage pieces: a Bally bag and a G2000 top (both, I presume, acquired during the 90′s) which I decided to wear with a more modern faux leather midi skirt and snake print sneakers. Kept everything loose and casual– nope, didn’t even think about belting this one– just because. :)
