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! ūüėČ 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...

OOTD: Before and After Workout Look

If you’ve been seeing my posts on Instagram (@lush_angel), I had the chance to visit Sagada last week. Ahhh… I’ve been meaning to go there¬†since forever, but it’s just too far from Manila! I’ve talked to¬†a lot of foreigners and they¬†love the place so much. Finally, I gave in to my curiosity! It was a long drive – probably the longest I’ve ever experienced here in the Philippines. Imagine, it’s 6 hours of zigzag from Baguio, making it feel like 12 hours! Haha! Was it worth it? Well, if I would witness such amazing views¬†in all my travels, I would be willing to drive for 12 hours! So, that’s a YES!!! It’s as if the lake and mountains have VSCO/Instagram filters of their own. I’ll tell you more about my Sagada trip in a different post. For now, let me share a sporty #OOTD. Since going to the gym has been part of my everyday life, I thought of sharing an outfit that could be worn before and after workout or even travels like this! I’m wearing my favorite jacket, which I also brought in Japan and New Zealand. Obviously, it’s used and abused! Fabric is quite thick enough to keep me warm. It’s also perfect for long drives like this. Yup, I wore this the entire time in the car. It’s too overused that I might need another...

OOTD: Shadow Obsession

There’s something about shadow. The uniqueness. The silhouette. The comfort. I could go on and on… I’m talking about the new adidas Tubular Shadow, as seen below! Finally, I’m posting an #OOTD wearing this pair! In fact, this has been my current favorite kicks since I got it! (See more about the adidas Tubular launch here:¬†http://lushangel.com/2016/12/22/adidas-tubular/) When I first saw it, I honestly thought I’ll have a hard time wearing it. Silhouette can look bulky, but when worn, it’s actually pretty!!! I pair it with anything – jeans, shorts, leggings, or dress. For this look, I used a black slip-on dress – something every girl should have in her closet! It’s a versatile piece that can be worn for more formal events or date nights. Just pair it with sexy strappy heels and you’re good to go! For casual days, you can wear it with your fave kicks or wear a plain tee underneath, just like what i did. You can also throw in a denim jacket, if you prefer layering.
