It is unusual for me to wear brown dress (for the record this is the first). I don’t wear a color that is almost identical with my skin complexion, but I realized that if I choose the right pieces to match it with, I wouldn’t have any problem at all. Black and gold pieces complete this ensemble and thanks to my neighbour’s vined wall my photos came out amazing.

 

By the way, I am wearing the sunnies that I fought so hard just for me to get. For someone like me who eat and drink fashion, looking for a fashionable piece is like looking a dish that you are craving. I’ve been looking for this “Dior So Real” inspired sunnies for the longest time. I was expecting I could buy it in Hong Kong when I went there last April, but we did not find one in Ladies Market and Night Market. I was lucky enough after I came across this account in IG selling different types of sunnies, its Wear Vintage or @wearvintageph in IG. They are Manila based but they are also selling their sunnies here in Cebu through Emporium. To save shipping fee, I went straight to Emporium after I confirmed through Wear Vintage that they are restocking at Emporium and it should be delivered on the same day. As if it was a life and death situation, I went there with haste and to my disappointment it was not displayed so I approached the Sales Lady and showed her the photo of the sunnies that I want to buy. She confirmed new stocks arrived and it is already in their stock room but they cannot release it because it was not checked yet, and I was like, “Really?? I am here and ready to buy but you cannot give it to me because it was not yet checked?.”

 

I went to talk to the girl in the cashier and asked her if she can do it for me, she was quick to decline and said they cannot give me the sunnies for the same reason and that I need to go back the day after if I want to buy. At that time, I was already feeling a bit pissed because:
1. They already have the stock, all they have to do is to give me one.
2. The stock room is on the same floor, and same building. It is not in Moalboal or in Bantayan Island.
3. I am the customer and ironically I am the one begging for them to sell me something.
4. I was already there so why would I go back the day after when I know that they can give it to me right there and then because they have the stock?
5. Poor customer service, poor rebuttals and every reason she tells me just aggravates me.

 

I understand that she is just doing her job but she is not making an effort to make her customer satisfied and make her boss happy that she got a sale. It’s not as if I am going to buy a lot, I am just going to buy a pair so I also don’t understand the checking thing when she could just list it down that she released one for a very desperate customer. I asked for Supervisor, Manager and anyone from high above (god almighty if she could give me), but she said there was no one there but them. And I was again like “Really? your store doesn’t have Supervisor or Manager present?” I gathered all my initiative and asked for the store owner’s phone number. Yes, I am that desperate. I called and talked to the owner, she was really nice and accommodated my request. In 2 minutes, they were able to give me the sunnies I want.

 

I came out victorious through this ordeal and the girl in the cashier doesn’t look pleased and happy because I won. Well, it wouldn’t have reached that far if they have the initiative and passion for customer service. Definitely not going back to Emporium, but I’m glad I now have my favorite sunnies in my hand.

Hi everyone! I will not be talking about my outfit anymore because I’ve had a lot of these in my previous posts already. I love black and white combo and some of them looks exactly the same, the difference is just the cloth and I know you guys are also a fan of basic colors that understanding this style is already self explanatory.

 

In continuation with my Blogaversary Q&A, I gathered the last 10 questions that I will be answering for you guys to know me a lot better and what I do. Last wave it is!

1. When you can’t think of anything to wear, what’s your go-to outfit?

Shift dress. I have a lot of them in my closet because it is easy to wear. No need to worry about flabs to hide or jeans to pair it with.

 

2. What type of camera do you use?

Nikon D3100 with 35 mm lens. I have been using this for almost 3 years now and I am already planning to buy a mirrorless camera because DSLR is really bulky and heavy, but of course I still have to consider the budget.

 

3. Heels? or Flats?

Heels. I don’t like flats because it makes me look short.

 

4. What is your dream job?

To be a full time fashion blogger or to work as an assistant of a fashion magazine editor like Andy Sachs who is the assistant of Miranda Priestly in the book The Devil wears Prada.

 

5. Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn?

Audrey Hepburn of course.

6. Favorite Quote?

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”
— Audrey Hepburn

 

7. What is your closet like? Is it a walk-in?

No, absolutely not. I haven’t reached that level yet. It’s still a simple closet, though I have a lot of clothes and shoes more than a normal girl owns, it is not that massive yet.

 

8. What is your guilty pleasure?

Pork belly at Tonyo’s.

 

9. What is the one thing your readers would be surprised to hear?

I can’t swim.

 

10. Who is the person you’d love to meet?

Bruno Mars!! I love him so much!

The year 2015 was the most amazing year in my blogging life. I have evolved and created signature fashion style and I was able to experiment on different trends. Getting out of my comfort zone is a challenge but I took the challenge positively to help me grow and be more creative in my craft. Fashion blogging is a passion I that wanted to share with everyone. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my avid readers who have walked life with me in my quest of looking fabulous. Cheers to more years of fashion tips and advices. I will continue being an inspiration to people with wardrobe malfunction.

 

Here’s a recap of the last 12 months of fashion blogging starting from January to December 2015. I am sure 2016 will just be as awesome as 2015 or may I say, will be more awesome!
