Staycation At Plantation Bay

Last month, I was delighted to have spent a weekend with my family at my most favorite beach resort in Cebu, 

I am fashionably ready for this short vacation. I packed those light and breezy but chic set of outfits. 

 Posted here are the three outfits that I donned during this momentary staycation.

Outfit #1
tropical print mullet dress + white / gold platforms 
dress - White Gold; platforms - from Hong Kong; sunglasses - G. Country Mall; necklace - gifted

Outfit #2
peach craze: sleeved embellished top + skort  
platforms for my feet
knit top - Chic Vintage; skort - Eazy Fashion; sunglasses - SM; platforms - from Hong Kong necklace - gifted
 This peach ensemble is a medley of textures.  The top is knit with lace, eyelets and appliques.  The skort is some what jersey meets spandex.  And I maintained the color theme to my accessories and swimming bra-top.

Outfit #3
matchy separates in black and white floral print + embellished thongs
top + short - G. Capital; thongs - 138; sunglasses - SM

Hong Kong 2014

My business trip to Hong Kong last month is my third time to step on the soils of the region.

We went there to attend the VitaFoods Asia 2014 Expo held in AsiaWorld-Expo.

 Those are not my hands.  Taken at the Avenue of the Stars.

 Cable cars at Lantau island.

 Photo taken while we were waiting for the Symphony of Lights show at the Avenue of the Stars.  The show happens every 8:00 in the evening.

 Had the chance to stroll and shop at the Ladies Night Market in Mongkok.  The market is located 2 blocks away from City View hotel where we stayed.

The busy airport of Hong Kong.  More photos HERE from the trip.

Do keep coming back for  my next travel posts!

Sigh Style Tips: White Out

Seldom do I wear white, for fear of easily getting stained or filthy.  But I do get attracted on the color, especially on shoes and tops.  But for bottoms, as in, p-a-n-t-s / j-e-a-n-s, never.

I have bought a white bolero a few years ago, but seldom do I wear this.  What attracted me to purchase it are the details which included rosette appliques and silver sequins, plus the fabric is sheer.

Recently, I got the chance to wear the same bolero for two religious events: a Sunday mass and baptism of my office mate, who invited me to be her godmother which I gladly accepted.

Here's how I wear it plus paired it with my white patent leather embellished shoes that I bought in Hong Kong last September.

Look #1
Scarf-inspired dress, cinched with a belt, underneath the bolero.
dress - Cyecle, belt - Landmark Makati, bolero - G. Main, sunglasses - XOXO, shoes - from Hong Kong, watch - Anne Klein (gifted by my mom)

F.Y.I. - A BOLERO is defined by Merriam Webster as a short jacket that does not close in front.  Another online dictionary defines it as a very short jacket, sometimes without sleeves and mainly worn by women.

Look #2
white sleeveless top with inverted heart-shaped appliques, underneath the bolero, worn with straight cut denim pants, accessorized with pearl necklace. 
bolero - G. Main, sleeveless top - Cyecle, denim pants - Forever 21, sunglasses - G. Country Mall, sling bag (as seen on 1st pic) - Celine, shoes - from Hong Kong
