I am getting pumped for my next trip to The Philippines (whenever this may be) and yes, there are a lot of things I could get excited about, like the food, the atmosphere, seeing my relatives and just simply being submerged in my culture but being a true fashionista at heart, I am (regrettably) fixated on the current state of our country's (or at least Manila's) fashion. All I can think of is what to wear and what to pack. Naturally, I decide to flip through our nation's bible for style and all things modern, trendy and classic: PREVIEW.  

Anyway, I built myself a hefty collection during my last visit (they sell back issues there which is awesome for us "balikbayans" who can't subscribe) but of course, I wasn't lucky enough to purchase the ones sold after my departure. Luckily, they have a lot of the content posted on their website: http://www.stylebible.ph/ a must-click if you are interested in this aspect of The Philippines. The website's structure is very similar to VOGUE's style.com but different because of what's featured - either way, it's a great source for all things fashion-related. 

By the way, I made the collage above to showcase and pay some respect to PREVIEW's incredible covers in the past few years. 

A special note to those who have this preconceived notion that Filipinos back "home" are tacky, do yourself a favor, place your ignorance in your back pocket for just one minute and grab a copy of PREVIEW to see that we're not all baduy.

Feeling empowered by my Filipina (and some half Filipina) sisters,


TBF FASHION INSPIRATION: Large-chested Women CAN wear suspenders!

I know. She doesn't exactly have the biggest bazoongas but her shirt is STILL an option for us large-chested women to finally sport some suspenders. I would love to get this shirt in black and white. I would also love to get her face haha. What a pretty girl. 
Just sayin...


TBF TREND: Proenza Schouler PS1 Bags

It hasn't really hit the shelves of most mainstream stores that I shop at (ex. ZARA) but the style and look are definitely going to take over soon, I'm sure. I wish I could afford one of these Proenza Schouler PS1 bags but I most likely won't be carrying my credit cards and lip gloss in one any time soon with my stay-at-home mom salary. Oh well, it doesn't hurt to dream and stare at pictures of them for hours and hours... or does it?
