I’ve been thinking so much of a new blog name because you all know that my blog title is just temporary. My blog will turn 1 year this May and I can’t wait any longer! Giveaways are coming up so make sure to wait for that. In the mean time, I do hope you love my new layout. All of this is made by my own sweat and tears, hiring a web designer is not really cheap and because my dream is to design and create my own layout, I tried and studied and do a little bit of research. To the fact that I don’t know anything about cs and photoshop (I don’t edit my outfit photos on photoshop, I edit them in Photoscape only. Photoshop is so complicated) though I’m so happy with the outcome. I do hope you like my blog’s new look. So simple and clean. But I already contacted one web designer and we had a pretty good deal, expect a new blog layout next week. Maybe not so new since I already love my layout, she will just tweak a few. So please do wait for that.

The Dream is the first thing I had on my mind when creating my new blog layout (Lot of brainstorming here!). The dream to inspire other people to dress up and don’t be afraid to wear what they really love. The dream to work in fashion. Everything started when I dream.

So I dedicate this blog to all the dreamers out there. Your dreams can come true, just always remember to do what your heart takes you with pure passion and dedication every dream can really do come true (Trust me!!) So you and I together let’s make our dreams come true.

So going on to my outfit, what is Diane behind close doors like what my T-shirt says. Well I’m definitely liking everyone too, I dream and trying to make it happen. I wish, pray and work hard like everyone else. There are a lot of times I wished to give up, especially here with my blog. Feels like no one cares, and no ones reads my blog but because of my family, especially my boyfriend who is always there to support me and push me to do my very best in everything.But to be honest, at first my parents think that I’m just wasting my time but now they know that I love what I’m doing and they are always there when I need someone to lean on. And I’m very thankful.SONY DSCWhat do you think of my new blog layout and outfit?

WHAT I WORE: SM GTW floral blazer l Oxygen clothing top l RedLogo shorts l Jeffrey Campbell foxy shoes l Tmart wallet/purse

As a student, blogger, and a creative director I’m always on the go. So I always need a bigger wallet/purse, so it can hold things that I need; cash, cards and tons of gift checks. When Tmart contacted me to do a product review I’m so surprised with their wide range of products but as I’ve mentioned I needed to find a new purse/wallet to accompany my daily needs so I clicked Tmart Wallets and Holders in seconds and just chose within seconds because the design is so pretty. This wallet/purse came in the mail last week and I didn’t expect it to be this beautiful! Pictures doesn’t give justice to how beautiful this creature is. It is big enough to hold my phone and tons of cards inside! And it is made of leatherette (I think?), and it’s so thick and durable. It’s light as well so it won’t add too much weight to the things you will put inside.

I love that it looks like a small satchel. I do really love it that I can use it and just leave my bag hanging in my car and just bring this wallet/wristlet alone. I ordered it last month and came in the mail at exactly 14 days, www.Tmart.com ships so fast plus they ship free worldwide (isn’t that awesome?). I didn’t really expect a lot from this wallet because it’s made in China but I’m telling you looks can be deceiving. It’s sturdy enough to last a lifetime! (Maybe two years is a lifetime for me!)

It is light weight and has a moderate size so it is convenient to bring anywhere. It can fit my phone, and tons of cards and cash and even coins since it has a separate zipper to hold your change. The design looks super cute, it looks like a small satchel so it fits my outfit perfectly!

Match my wallet with a very cute floral print blazer that has a bold colors into it, since the wallet and my shorts have neutral shades.

TIME AT THE DAY

SONY DSC

WHAT I WORE: Forever21 shorts l Converse shoes l H&M top

SONY DSC

I’ve been having the hardest time to blog this past few days, and I can tell you that I’m having all the stress from working. Now I can totally relate to vitamin for muscle pain T.V. commercials because now I totally need it. I don’t do much in my work but staying from 8 am to 6 pm to work is not that easy. (Being a boss is not EASY I REPEAT) but I don’t really mind because for such a young age I can be the boss of my own business. Thank you to my parents for that!

Maybe you’re thinking what I want to be after I graduate? hmmm. I wanted to continue this business that I’m doing right now because of this business I grow up very complete as I always say. I study in a good school, I can buy my daily essentials and the things I needed and want. So I need to love and continue this business. Plus I wanted to be a freelance fashion stylist. So studying fashion is one of my to do list next summer. And if you don’t know I styled few fashion shows and magazine photo-shoots. And I can see the love in that job but I’m telling you right now that job in fashion is not all glitz and Glam it’s pure with passion and hard work! The job is so difficult that I never walked inside the mall for more that 12 hours doing pull-outs!

Anyway I don’t actually have an internet connection in my work but I have an internet stick that actually has a slow connection as a dial-up connection (serious person here!). So even though I wanted to blog daily I can’t and whenever my duty ended I’m drained that all I wanted to do is sleep and rest. As my internet connection problem, I no longer shoot my outfits as religiously as I should. When I started working all my main focus is to be better in our business. So just wait for about 2 more months and I’m back on track and will blog daily.

Don’t worry I can blog twice a week. So enough with all the ranting and enjoy today’s outfit post.

This is taken in Paseo de sta. Rosa! I can’t still believe that this is in-between stores, the place is so picture perfect! I really wanted to go back to shoot more outfits there but I don’t really have time in the day. Plus it’s so peaceful there that my boyfriend and I stayed in one of the benches to just talk and relax for a few minutes. It’s so quite and so relaxing.

This photos are actually raw photos, I actually love how clear the photos are! If only I can go there everyday, I’ll definitely do it!

B&W ON MY HAREM

SONY DSCWHAT I WORE: SM GTW top l Kirin-Kirin pants l SoFab! shoes l SM Accessories hat and bag
SONY DSC

If you have a good eye, this top is same as what I wore here just different in color. I love how baggy it looks but it actually comes with a fitted top inside that’s made of cotton. It hugs my body perfectly and feel so comfortable so I bought this in two colors. Unlike what I did in the other top, this outfit is totally different. The other is so girl next door and so Elle in legally blonde; this one is tres chic! I prefer this outfit more than that, so I prefer to wear this the entire day. Plus this harem pants are made of pure cotton, I feel like wearing a pajama the entire day.
SONY DSC

Actually I have a lot of shoes, but a lot of them don’t actually feel nice enough to wear 8-10 hours but this black platform pumps are just way to perfection. The heel height, the platform, the texture and the style! I know, it’s just a black platform pump but it’s so hard to find the perfect pair to be honest. So imagine wearing this outfit the whole day, you’ll get tons of stare (I hope a good one) plus you’re comfortable is a major bonus!
SONY DSC

I don’t really love harem pants, because I think it’s not easy to pull off but I am so surprised that I actually pulled it off. What do you think?
SONY DSC

I can’t get enough of this outfit actually! I will recreate this in a different color. Navy? Gold? What do you think?
SONY DSC

This is my new hiding spot, if you’re from the South I bet you already know where this is. SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

P.S. What do you think about the quality of this photos? I totally love it. I also love the fact that there is no other people when we shoot this so there’s no awkward stare.

WHAT I WORE: SM-GTW lace cover-up and dress l SM Accessories hat

Like what I’ve said I am going to be so busy this summer and there’s no beach trips for me but I didn’t say I won’t be having a good fun out there. Like what my girlfriends did last last week, this time around I’m with my siblings and nephew and niece. I had a good swim for about 8 hours! (Sorry Skin!) So what happen? I got sunburn all over my body, and it hurts! This is the picture after I took a shower after our swim. I look totally red and dark! Hate, but at least I had fun.
SONY DSC

I was able to blog today because I’m still in bed and it’s lunch time already dealing with  my headache. Maybe because it’s too hot outside already. I should be good tomorrow or else my mermaid class will be postponed and I will deal with my work only.  SONY DSC

What do you think of my pre-swimming outfit? :) I actually wore this before we swim but because I already saw the swimming pool can’t stop myself from jumping already, I decided to change into my swimsuits and just go for a swim. And took the outfit after.

FLOWY

WHAT I WORE: SM GTW top l HOUSE OF KEZEELLE (@houseofkeezelle on instagram) skirt l SoFab! heels (same here) l SM ACCESSORIES bag l Necklace gift from my AuntieSONY DSC

As you all know I started working in our family business, if I am lucky enough I am sometimes assigned in our highway branch where I can bring my car and shoot some outfit but I am always in our bayan branch where there is no parking space to bring my car and to shoot some outfits but I can’t hate because I love working with our own business. I can be the own boss. lol. Maybe you ask what I do? I am like a supervisor or A.K.A. branch manager. So I don’t really do a lot just check sales and of course manage the business. So simple, that I spend my spare time editing photos, watching movies, doing the inventory, eating and eating more.
SONY DSC

I am actually busy today because I am doing a branch inventory so I am just inserting some post in between my free time. On the other note Summer, we all totally love because of lesser clothes, brighter colors, darker skin tones, and of course the beach! Well, it’s unfortunate that I can’t go to the beach right now but maybe next month but I am going to an outing with my family this Saturday! Can’t wait.SONY DSC

What do you think of my outfit? So simple yet because of  the cuts of the skirt and my necklace it looks so elegant and business appropriate. SONY DSC

I actually just did borrow this heart bag from my niece, it’s actually for kids but I just can’t help but borrow and use for blogging purposes. It’s so small that it can only fit my cellphone and wallet but it matches my outfit perfectly, don’t you think so? SONY DSCI hope you all having a good summer! Enjoy!

As you guys all know, if you’re a reader of my blog that I won’t be having a good summer since I will work in our business and my vacation will start this July! I can’t wait actually but well we all need to earn first before vacay. So I won’t be taking outfit pictures religiously from now on but don’t worry I will still blog twice or thrice a week.D2

This is a very simple outfit that you can wear everywhere but of course this is somehow very office appropriate outfit that I spice it up a bit and wear sheer chiffon top and polka dots wedges that I truly love! And of course the big tote bag. What do you think?
