Are those yours?

     Hi ladies! I can’t believe Septembers over, I feel like I have so much to share to you before December hits, because there's so much to write about the coming Christmas season, gifts, food, shopping and decorating! It’s almost overwhelming, so as we inch closer to the second BER month, I picked to share a trend that has maintained its popularity for quite sometime now. I’m talking about menswear on women. You heard right! I think men’s clothing and accessories are very flattering and sexy.  They can be mixed up with feminine pieces for a balanced look. When worn correctly, menswear on women can be glamorous.

      I was inspired by the “borrowed-from-the-boys look” from vogue, so I decided to put together my list of menswear that women can have in their closets. 

1.        A cotton button-down shirt is an extremely
versatile piece.

 2.    I just got this 3 weeks ago, I absolutely love the
 look of a simple  men's gold watch 
when worn by a woman. 

3.2. These aviator Raybans are from my good 
friend James V., Thanks!
1.        3.1. Classic men's sunglasses, like aviators or 
wayfarers look cool on women. 

 4. A men’s blazer or jacket is another versatile
piece- with jeans and t-shirt, over a dress- the possibilities
are endless, and they add a tailored, put-together feel to your outfit. 
 5.   A hat, this looks cute when worn with a
plain t-shirt or with a vest. 

6.        I always wanted to wear a real necktie, choose 
a tie that has a fun print, so that you can 
wear it as an accessory.
7.   Men’s bling blings… I love them so much, 
I wear them when I want to 
look  rockish.
      Not only can menswear add a little something to your outfit, they can be a pocket saver too, just imagine how much you can save if you can borrow something from your brother or boyfriends closet.  Just keep it girlie with a ladylike handbag or add a touch of bright hued lipstick and you’ll be anything but fabulous. Enjoy mix and matching!

Weekend Finds: Cracked Nails Polish

Faceshop crack nail 
polish in brown P295
              How's your weekend ladies? (and gents?) I had a very busy weekday and it flew by so quickly. So to balance that crazy week I arrange a meet/catch-up  date with one of my besties from high school last Saturday. (Hi Lani!) Destination, where else of course the mall!  Back then when we were in highschool we never miss going to the mall on weekend even just to window shop. We don’t have that much money then, just our limited allowances, so we just drool over shoes, bags, and accessories, and wait for the next sale event.  Sadly now that we do, we rarely get together because she also has a crazy schedule.  So this weekend we made sure we check-out as many stores as our feet will allow us.
                 I’m not a big fan of nail art but this weekend’s favorite find was the shatter/cracked nail polish from Faceshop.  This trend was popularized by Miss Kathy Perry early this year.  This nail polish is a top coat that gives nails a cracked/leopard look. Cool, isn’t it? It comes in three colors, black,brown and gray. The beauty consultant from the shop recommends brown over hot pink and purple.  To save up and since I already have the hot pink, I followed her advice. 

Here’s how it looks!

nail polish.
I painted my nails hot pink first.

All done!
            So if your feeling this ladies, make sure to check it out next time you visit the mall, I heard its selling really fast. Hope you have a great weekday start!
