Good Dress Up The Girl in the Green Skirt. ELENABLOG


Familiar with my blog post title? I know most of you have watched the movie or have read the book �Confessions of a Shopaholic� already. If you haven�t, let me give you a quick introduction. In the book/movie Rebecca Bloomwood, the lead role is a shopaholic that wanted to work for Alette, a fashion magazine but became a writer for a financial magazine, Successful Savings instead. She became popular with her first column for the magazine and she was named �The Girl in the Green Scarf�. It�s one of my favorite fashion related movies that�s why I thought incorporating it with my blog post since I�m wearing green! Haha! I don�t wear green that much but in the past few days, I find the color attractive and have decided to wear it more.

This is what I wore last Saturday, October 5, 2013. Event-filled day, so I have to come up with a chic look that I can survive wearing the whole day. I�ll tell you more about the Estee Lauder event and GoPaktor Bloggers Hang out by Nuffnang Philippines that I�ve attended on my next post.

I�ve noticed that pencil skirts are having a comeback. The trend is just all over fashion blogs, magazines, online shops, and instagram accounts of many fashion savvy ladies out there. A pencil skirt is a very staple piece; you can wear it in many ways. You can wear it in casual, formal or corporate. I love my new pencil skirt with the asymmetric frill detail! The shape is just so sexy that it highlights your hips and legs.

Since pencil skirts are on trend this season, time to invest on these staple pieces. You can visit and shop at Zalora! They have pencil skirts in different prints and colors! From a simple black for a day in the office to a floral one for your weekend with friends! Plus, they�re also having their Great Shoe Sale! Make sure to check out their heels like the one I�m wearing in this post! These kinds of heels look so chic in everything! And since I'm a Zalora Brand Ambassador, I can treat you guys a special discount! You can use this code to avail a discount of 15% off when you shop at Zalora! CODE: ZBAP0Gt

Good Dress Up Vania Romoff for Ensembles� Young Designer Series Holiday 2013. ELENABLOG

Vania Romoff is one of the leading designers of today�s generation which is why it�s no surprise she is this year�s chosen one for Ensembles� Young Designers Series. Born and raised in a family of designers and fashion-savvy individuals, the 24 year old Cebuana grew up around fashion. Vania�s grandmother was the first couturier in Cebu while her mother is a garment manufacturer and her brother a designer as well. �I would say it�s very much a part of me, more than it is a chosen career or interest.� Vania studied Business Entrepreneurship at the Center for International Education in Cebu but learned and developed her fashion skills at School of Fashionof the Arts.
 As for her design aesthetic, it�s all about being feminine and classic. �Clean lines, flattering silhouettes and a quiet, yet fresh elegance are consistent in my designs making each piece somehow a modern classic�, Vania said. Her fashion forward yet timeless creations have garnered continuous praise from the eyes of fashion critics and the rest of the industry, making her one of the most sought after designers, especially with female clientele. Establishing herself as a legitimate designer in Manilais considered by Vania as one of her greatest achievements. �The thought that women trust me with creating pieces for them is an achievement in itself.� 
When asked about where she gets inspiration for designing, Vania pointed out that there is no formula for inspiration. �It is taken from everywhere that evokes personal vision or creativeness�, Vania shared. Among the list of people she admired, she named Inno Sotto and Jun Escario, both renowned Filipino designers, as her icons.

When asked about her collaboration with Ensembles, Vania pointed out that she considered two things. Fisrt, the pieces should be wearable and relatable and second, her designs should stay true to her design aesthetic while still reflecting the brand�s persona. �For my collaboration with Ensembles, I wanted to just go back to the basic silhouettes. All together the collection is fresh yet timeless and lives beyond the season.�

Now on its 5thyear, Ensembles is back with another budding fashion designer for its Young Designer Series 2013. Ensembles is all about the strong and independent woman with a style that�s fashion forward yet elegant.  That�s why this year�s collaboration with Vania Romoff is a perfect match. With her designs being predominantly classic and feminine, Vania�s design aesthetic is definitely fit for an Ensembles woman. Her collection is a variety of tops, dresses and jumpsuits featuring easy to wear pieces and key classics that are both functional and chic at the same time. As for the silhouettes, it is a showcase of simplistic lines and basic shapes flattering to a woman�s curves which is one of the highlights of Vania�s design persona. The collection is also a multitude of different trends and styles such as color blocking, prints and soft drapes presented in mostly subtle colors and neutrals, all capturing a woman�s grace, maturity and charm.

A fresh take on vintage was the highlight of the campaign shoot for Vania�s collection, complete with a classic yet fun styling featuring shoes from Janilyn. Described by Vania herself as a fresh yet timeless collection, her pieces will surely capture the attention of women of all sorts. Whether it is worn in the office, a smart casual affair or on a simple lovely day out, Vania�s pieces will definitely bring out any woman�s confidence and highlight their beauty. The Young Designer Series 2013 Collection featuring Vania Romoff is set to release in Ensembles stores nationwide this September!

Good Dress Up Daisy and Denim. ELENABLOG

Top, ENSEMBLES. Denim vest, Renz Pangilinan. Skirt, DIY. Shoes, WADE. Gold Choker, FOREVER 21. Gold Cuff, HISSBLISS.

I'm going to make this quick coz I gotta go in a bit. This is what I wore last Student Media Congress at De La Salle University. I need to wear something casual yet chic for my judging duty later that day at UP Diliman. Of course I didn't wore heels all day. I wore flats during the congress. Notice my skirt? it's a maxi! I turned it into a skater skirt-ish! haha! Love my DIY? Do it to your tired looking maxi skirts for a new look!

By the way, I super love my new pair of platform heels from Wade! So comfy and chic! It's so light that you won't even recognize you're in heels! Check out Wade shoes for their new collections!

Good Dress Up My Playsuit for Playspace. ELENABLOG

Hiiiii! (in my most giddy tone)
I've missed posting personal stuff in my blog! I'm actually excited to post this one! Again, I'm sorry for the blogging hiatus. I think it's been a month since I've posted something of my own. I'm just enjoying summer and by summer I mean bumming out LOL and doing 'adult' stuff like getting 'adult' i.d.s, and of course job hunting hihi. I'm unemployed, single and having fun! I'm actually not rushing things right now, it's my last summer without thinking about school and not stressing out about anything so I might as well have fun and wait for the serious stuff to happen.

So about this look, this is what I wore at the Playspace event by Acer. I wasn't able to attend Playspace Day 1 because of prior commitments so I was only able to attend Day 2. I asked my friend Jonard on what to wear for the event and he just said "artsy chic". haha He's not serious but I took it seriously and this is what I came up with. I'm keeping myself from wearing jeans/pants. The scorching heat in Manila is unbearable and I cannot force myself to wear clothes that seals in all the heat in my body. I opted to wear my bodycon skirt, a simple black top and this denim vest to brighten up the look. I'm going to commute so I can't risk in wearing heels and I'm too lazy to bring extra shoes so I wore my sneaker wedges! Makes me feel so tall and 'commute friendly' at the same time!;)

Thank you Paowee Castillo for sending me these photos and for Jonard Palteng for taking them.

Some photos during the event!

My favorite speakers! Awesome underwater photographer Mr. Gutsy Tuason and Christina Tantengco Editor in Chief of :)

and of course the much awaited UP DHARMA DOWN!!!

Fan girling at it's finest!:)

 The event was awesome and educational. We learned a lot of stuff from the guest speakers. The concept of Playspace is to play and learn at the same time. They provided us with party poppers, bubbles, pen, paper, notebook and they also hosted games to keep us entertained. Mad props to Acer for having an event like this!

So there, I'm back to blogging! I promise to keep you guys updated and sorry in advance because I'm planning to post backlogs but don't worry I'll keep it interesting. Another thing, I'm in the process of putting up my own clothing line and will sell it online soon! I'll keep you guys posted!:)
