Old Navy Summer 2017

Who said summer is about to end? A few days ago, I visited Old Navy in Bonifacio High Street and the entire store was filled with summer vibe. And what does ‘summer vibe’ mean? Loads of fun and happiness! Would you believe it took me 3 hours to shop around?! Yup, somebody had so much fun! Well, what’s nice about this collection is that it can be worn all year round here in the Philippines. Agree? Anyway, let me tour you around and show you some of my favorites. Old Navy Summer 2017 collection is divided into 4 looks: Havana Prep, Ivory Coast, Casablanca, and Americana. Old Navy Summer 2017: Havana Prep Inspired by the vivacious energy of Cuba, this collection transports us to a happy place boasting of lush florals, whimsical tropical prints, clean preppy stripes, and saturated hues. Think cherry reds and palm-tree greens galore! Old Navy Summer 2017: Ivory Coast The designers took the traditional black-and-white story and gave it a new twist. Drawing from global influences and hand crafted African designs, this monochromatic collection weaves in soft, natural textures, angular geometric prints, and unexpected touches of luster. Old Navy Summer 2017: Casablanca The main story here are the boho embellishments – from feminine fringe to fluffy pom-poms, textured stripes to richly pigmented embroidery, this wanderlust-inspired, jewel-toned collection grounds the bohemian aesthetic for everyday looks; letting...

OOTD: Smart Casual for Summer

With Manila’s summer heat, light clothing is a must! It’s almost always tempting to wear our summer uniform — that is tank top and shorts. Agree? But sometimes, it’s just too casual. What if you need to dress up a little for a dinner date or an afternoon cocktail? Here’s a smart casual style idea for summer! If you read my ‘Easy Ways to Upgrade‘ post previously, I mentioned about wearing a cover up. But during summer, it’s not just possible especially if you expect to walk outdoors! Tip: Go for dressy, flowy tops! Here, I’m wearing an off-shoulder top with bow detail. The fabric is very light, which is definitely perfect for summer! During summer, I try to avoid trousers as much as I can. I can’t take the feeling of fabric clinging onto my skin. I cannot! The heat is already too much to handle. LOL! But if it’s light and airy as this, why not?! It’s even black, but I didn’t mind walking outside at 12nn. Haha! Pairing a flowy top and airy pants can have a tendency to look as if I’m drowning with too much fabric. The trick is to wear a pair of footwear that can make you look taller. I wasn’t in the mood to wear heels though since it was a whole day affair. I slipped on my trusty block-heel sandals instead....

OOTD: Fringes

This look is all about fringes. If you’re not into this trend, why not go for pieces that have small fringes? They add interesting detail to plain and simple outfits. I would normally choose a fringed top/bottom and partner it with something simple. Well, fringe on fringe isn’t so bad after all… I got my top and denim skirt from the newly opened Penshoppe Capital. And since it was just a casual day in the mall, I used my go-to flats these days. I featured this pair in this post: http://lushangel.com/2017/02/24/yosi-samra-elevated/. Read more about the new Yosi Samra to know how different it is from the previous collections. It’s a perfect pair to bring wherever! If I need to wear heels for a couple of hours for an event, I just bring it with me so I can change right after. Ahhh.. foldable flats are the best innovations ever!!! So, are you ready to try and wear fringes?

Vionic: Infusing Science and Style in Footwear + OOTD

When it comes to footwear, I usually get that “love at first sight”experience. Although comfort is very important, as I would always say, I never liked sacrificing style. Bottomline: As long as it’s comfortable and stylish, I go for it! I do not really consider the science of the footwear I buy and I’m quite sure most of you do not either. But do you know that poorly designed shoes can cause our feet to lose their natural alignment, which causes other problems in our bodies, such as heel, knee and back pains? Vionic, a fashion-forward footwear brand, aspires to change this by infusing science and style in each of its footwear. Vionic recently launched here in the Philippines and during the event, I learned that the weight that we bear against flat, hard and unnatural surfaces almost daily can cause our feet to lose their natural alignment, which results to body pains. This is especially true for people who are overweight or women who are pregnant. Vionic aims to reduce the damage to our feet caused by this misalignment. With the help of Dr. Philip Vasyli, who had more than 30 years of podiatric ptractice, Vionic developed built-in orthotics in its footwear that help maintain the natural alignment of our feet while standing and walking. By achieving this natural alignment, Vionic helps our feet move more naturally against flat,...

Yosi Samra Elevated

For the past months, I tend to choose flats/ sandals/ sneakers over heels. Yes, heels are sexy but I’ve come to accept that they’re not made for walking (and okay fine… age! LOL!). Besides, if you’ve been reading my blog, I’ve always preferred comfort over fashion – okay, make that 99.8% of the time. I’m giving that .2% for formal events. Haha! But as I would always say, you don’t really need to sacrifice fashion if you want to be comfortable. There are stylish options – just like the NEWEST Yosi Samra! I know… I know… Yosi Samra has been around for a while now, but let me reiterate the word “NEW” because there’s really something new to look forward to, which is why it’s Yosi Samra 2.0! 😉 And as mentioned in my previous post, here it is… A few weeks ago, I, together with blogger friends, visited Yosi Samra’s SM Aura boutique to check out their Core Collection. with Jackie and Maxine If you’re familiar with Yosi Samra’s footwear, they actually have ballets flats for everyone – neutrals, metallics, bright colors, fun prints, and animal prints. And of course, they are known for their foldable flats. Although I love using them the entire day, there are unavoidable times when I need to wear heels. Thanks to these foldable flats, I can easily slip a pair inside my bag...
