Fashion Police Never Misses

{14 April 2007}   Fossil Yet Again

One could not have too many watches. That line really stuck to my head since it definitely has a point. You should have one for formal occasions, sporty look, casual days and the list goes on. One fine April morning, I was so eager to go to work since it was a payday. Not just an ordinary payday but it was also the payout of our bonus! Yay! More money, more shopping trips!

While going around the mall, I decided to buy a pair of white loafers. They were an investment and I would sure use them for a long time. I went to the watch store to check out if there was anything new. I’ve always wanted a white strapped watch. It may be hard to maintain since it gets dirty easily but it would really brighten up any outfit. Then I saw it. The perfect Fossil watch with a square face, watch strip and feature both digital and analog time. Wow. The moment I tried it on, I knew that it was destined to be on my wrist. I paid for it and forgot the price at the back of my head.

{13 April 2007}   My First Bling

Being a business graduate, I have a few ideas on making a great investment. As a shopaholic, buying investment pieces is a must. Of course, you get to use them for a long time and hopefully they adapt to the constantly changing trends. Investment pieces are usually accessories like bags, sunglasses and jewelry. Oh yes, jewelry is a very good investment.

My mom used to work in a jewelry store but I was very young then to understand their true value. Plus, I never liked yellow gold since they make me feel old. I prefer white gold or silver. Jewelry shopping was never my forte. The idea came to me when a friend introduced me to it. I’ve only bought two articles: a necklace and a pendant. It was a great buy since the design of the pendant was really funky yet classy. It looked like a small barrel in white and yellow gold. Well, it should be nice considering the fact that it cost me more than a month’s paycheck. By the way, I forgot to mention, the pendant was from Bulgari. Next project, the matching ring.

{10 April 2007}   Short Shorts

short shortsWhile riding the train on my way to work, I amuse myself by staring at the different billboards scattered along the way. I saw the ads for the upcoming Beyonce concert, the newest endorser of a new brand and the that guy wearing an interesting outfit. Wait, he looked all preppy on top but is wearing short shorts and loafers! Interesting.

One weekend trip to the mall, I decided to visit Zara. They have nice clothes but the prices are kinda high for me. I was going around then I noticed them. I saw a short walking shorts in plaid! I instantly fell in love it! I hurriedly paid for them not caring how much they cost. When I wore them, I felt really happy. Thank God he gave me slim legs so it was not awkward for me to wear shorts a little higher than my knees. I usually pair it with a simple top since I want to make the shorts the highlight of my outfit.

{9 April 2007}   Victoria’s Secret Bag

When I hear the brand Victoria’s secret, I always picture those angels walking down the runway in colorful and sexy outfits. The brand has been synonymous to underwear and lingerie. While browsing the net for something new to buy, I came upon several stuff from Victoria’s Secret and they were all on sale! There was a wide choice of perfumes, slippers, and bags. BAGS. I love bags! I check the pictures and fell in love with a huge travelling bag.

I checked the real price in the website and it was around $100 dollars but luckily, I got it at a lower price. So I placed my order and paid it. Yehey! I now own a huge black bag from Victoria’s Secret. I waited for about a month or it to arrive. When it finally arrived, I was really excited to see it. It was carefully wrapped. The material was leather-like, shiny and durable. The handles and trim were of patent leather. The interior was of a leopard print. Just plain fab and fierce inside and out. I an’t wait to use it tomorrow. I don’t care if its too big. I’ll make it work. Haha!

{7 April 2007}   That Top Is A Catch

I wasn’t really in the mood to shop lately since i’m low in cash and my credit card bills are just killing me. So my usual day at the mall is usually window shopping and dining. Last Saturday, I had a vey long day. It started with a short meeting at a friend’s place then I hurriedly went to the hospital to go to my dentist. After lunch, I went to the mall to meet up with a friend. While waiting, I decided to go around and check the department store. There were A LOT of great stuff. Too bad I didn’t have cash with me.

Then I saw it. It was a long sleeved, button-down top with red on white vertical stripes. Just plain perfect for summer! I saw an exact same top at Topman but this was way cheaper! I was torn whether I would buy it or not since there was only one left in my size. Fine, I left the mall and went home. The next day, I could still not forget about the top so I went to a branch nearer to my place. It must be fate because there they were, hanging in one corner! I hurriedly got my size, went to the fitting room and tried it on. Perfect. I paid for it and felt really happy. I wonder, what pants would go well with it? Hmm.

{6 April 2007}   Swimming Trunks

Summer gives one the chance to shop with a cause. You need the right outfit to bask in the sun and look fabulous despite the searing heat. One day, my friends and I decided to go on a road trip to spot high above the city. As expected, the wind was cool but the the sun was still hot. On our way home, we decided to stop by some outlets that sell authentic but really cheap clothes. There were shops of Nike, Speedo, Adidas and the list goes on.

We went on our own separate ways and check out the complex. I went to Speedo to check some swimming gear. The board shorts were still expensive so I headed to to the trunks section. Boy was surprised to see them on sale at 50% off! I bought a simple navy blue trunks and a sleeveless top. When I went to Nike, I saw that their trunks were on sale at 70% off so I bought another one. Both were great buys and would really make a great addition to my wardrobe. In the car, we were all happy and contented with out purchases. I can’t wait to hit the beach.

{3 April 2007}   Exercise Outfit

exercise attire

Most of us think that when we exercise, we can simply wear a shirt and shorts and sneakers. The outfit would actually depend on the type of exercise your are doing. One doesn’t have to compromise fashion when exercises. You can still look fab even if you’re sweating like a pig and struggling with the moves.

Brands like Adidas and Nike have great selections of apparel and shoes that would suite any exercise. When doing yoga, it is best to wear comfortable clothes which also have a stretch material since the exercise requires flexibility. When running, it is best to wear the right shoes to avoid sore feet or even dead nails. Also choose those with enough support to avoid injuries like sprain. In swimming, choose the right suit or trunks that would be comfortable and would have less drag.

With the new technology in sport apparel, one can choose from a wide variety of products that is perfect for your chosen sport. It is not just about being fashionable but it also practical to wera the right gear to avoid or minimize injuries.

{1 April 2007}   Florals

floralAll year round, I play with different prints to make interesting outfits. But since the summer is just around the corner, it is best to revisit the florals. The summer season is characterized by bold , colorful prints on very light and airy fabrics like cotton. Flowers have always been associated with the summer season because they are in full bloom and the colors are just vibrant.

Florals are hot during summer because they clearly reflect the season. They have a very festive and comfortable mood. I prefer keeping an outfit of florals laid back and comfortable. If my top is printed, I opt for a plain bottom and vice versa. Dresses, swimsuits and boardshorts all use florals. Also, don’t forget to put on the right accessories since they could jazz up the outfit. Be sure to keep them simple and coordinated with the entire look. Invest in classic but stylish pieces so they will never go out of style and you can use them again next year.
