What’s your fashion style?

Comfortable but… gusto ko kasi… I don’t like things looking so fixed. I like things looking chic but effortless, and at the same time habol ko comfort. Kasi I like sitting on the ground.

I’m a sporty person, I’m a mom, I look after my son and at the same time kapag nasa taping kayo, kung saan-saan kayo napapadpad. So, most of the time you’ll see me in maong shorts or a white T-shirt na V-neck and jeans.

And if I need to go out, I put on heels, a blazer or a cardigan, or a nice necklace, nice earrings. I put my hair up, and if I dress down, sneakers or flats, folded jeans and ‘yon na ‘yon.

Fashion Icon?

I love Kate Beckinsale, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez. Actually mostly Latina, coz maybe I can identify with the body shape.

I mean, it’s hard because my measurements are for tall people, I have a front and I have a back, but then I’m short, so I always have to show my waistline coz the only thing that can break the top from the bottom and I always need heels.

Where do you usually shop?

‘Di ako namimili. Actually, when I see something I like, if it’s affordable I get it. Pero hindi ako brand conscious, e. I love going to Greenhills, I love going to Rockwell, Shangri-La. Actually, I’ve been dying to go to Divi [Divisoria] but no one wants to go with me. I always make pabili of the whole sale stuff, if I like something kasi I buy all the colors para mabilis.

Your top 5 fashion must-haves?

Nude or skin-toned high heels that makes your legs look long. Uhm, a nice belt, and a nice white T-Shirt that fits you perfectly no matter what body shape you have.

Black dress that accentuates what ever you have without showing too much. And the fifth is the confidence and comfort and that is always important. You can always wear a trash bag and you can make it look nice in the way you carry yourself.

Just know your body type, know that nothing’s ugly because God never makes mistake. So, whatever you have, no body else has, that’s my fifth and most important fashion must have.
