Fabulouschq meets StyLized♥

Finally I get to meet Miss Liz Uy... actually this was not my first encounter with her.  Few years back, i already met her in one of the events of Sta.Lucia: Victory Party when the realtors won the 2003 All-Filipino Championship. 

In her book signing at SM Podium last Saturday March 8... polished as she is, stunning in her white sleeveless top, teal / blue green trousers and black strappy sandals... (of course a Chanel bag to complete the look).  

Fabulouschq meets StyLized!♥ Got my book signed ... Short chat with her...(I told her that we already bumped into each in 2003)

Here's how our conversation goes:

Me: Hi Liz! We met each other before...
Liz: Hi! Oh where?
Me: In Sta.Lucia 
Liz: Sino kasama ko? (and gave me an intriguing smile..I know she already knew who I am talking about)
Me: (I'm really hesitant to say John Lloyd's name) Alam mo na yon! 
Liz: Si JL?
Me: Yah.. 
Liz:  Si Tita Mate...I'm still in touch with her and JL.

She's really down to earth... making chika as if we knew each other for a long time... :)  She even told Lance that "You're cute!" and made beso with him...

For somebody who loves styling... meeting one of the country's top style icon was something worth remembering! :)

BRAVE: GABRIELA runs in the family♥

Last Saturday: March 8 was International Women's day! Happy Women's day too all!!!

Why Gabriela?  "Gabriela Silang" is a Pinay hero (wife of Diego Silang) was known for her braveness when assumed the leadership of rebel troops following the assassination of her husband during the Spanish occupation.  GABRIELA signifies courage to all Filipinas fighting for their rights...

Being brave does not necessarily mean that you will always fight and argue with others... But for being strong in facing all the challenges and obstacles that life brings...  

Perfect example is my Lola... she have been a source of strength for all of us...  I became brave to face anything that came into my way...even if she is no longer with us, all the life lessons she taught us will always be in our mind and heart: will be passed on to the next generation of Santos women.

F/W 2014: Louis Vuitton intoduces: Petite-Malle♥

LV petite-malle - classic monogram

Structured pieces!!! That is what we could find at Louis Vuitton boutique soon... Nicolas Ghesquière (formerly from Balenciaga) debuts with these fabulous pieces, being the new creative director in the House of Louis Vuitton after the departure of Marc Jacobs.  

Collection includes more structured, quirky and one-handle bags.  

The statement piece in the collection was the Petite-Malle that comes in two versions: (1) classic-monogram style and (2) with removable covers. These are mini-trunks (he shrunk LV's classic malle) with straps that are also removable.

LV petite-malle with removable cover
I am not into small bags... but this one is totally gorg!

For the two versions... if you ask me which of the 2 is my favorite! I love the classic monogram (Nothing beats the classic monogram)!♥

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday or "Miyerkules ng Abo" is a holy day of obligation to all Catholics around the world: marks the start of the Lenten season (Kwaresma) 46 days before Easter Sunday. 

Ash Wednesday is a practice of placing ashes on the foreheads as a reminder that "we are dust and unto dust we shall return"...  it is a sign of mourning and repentance to God.

Review: StyLized by Liz Uy♥

I was so excited to have a copy Liz Uy's StyLized book so I posted a photo on my Facebook and Instagram: A lot of my friends started asking me how do I find the book? So I decided to write a review.

Story begins here:  I wasn't able to grab a copy on the day that Miss Liz Uy launched this at Glorietta, so my copy's unsigned... but I am hoping to go to her SM Podium book signing scheduled on March 8... (Got it at NBS-Super branch in Cubao: two weeks after the book was released since it's out of stock when I went to National Bookstore in Robinson's Magnolia). 

The book is very helpful especially to beginners... who really wanted to know what best fits their body type, personality and age... Styling is not new to me... I love it and most of my cousins and friends often seek my advice on what should go with this and that...(I'm flattered)  I finished the book i think 3 to 4 hours...with 100 pages of style info... Liz's 10 style essentials best fits every Pinay...For other style reference: I also have Nina Garcia's "The One hundred" but of course some of the things there are not suitable for our country's weather... The StyLized book is like you're browsing pages of fashion magazines... rolled into one. 
This is what you will see when you open the book...

All chapters feature a celebrity: having different personalities and body type...

Celebrities that represent each chapter

Secrets of hiding flaws and flaunting one's assets!

Accessorizing! How to incorporate accessories (especially as we age) to the outfit without over accessorizing which sometimes lead to someone looking like a walking jewelry box or Christmas tree.

When to let go of things: worn-out tops and bottoms... and reinventing them...

Perfect fit:  Ideas on how a particular outfit should fit: like pencil skirts or leggings should not be too tight or too lose...

Power dressing for every occasion: What is a Yay ot Nay..When to dress up or down... (Work or office styling, Gimik with friends and etc.) Do's and Don'ts of what to wear...
Wild card styling... Out of the box styling or out of our comfort zones...  :)

Ways of taking care of our most cherished outfits and accessories...

I give this book 5 stars! Very informative for every girl... (fearless Pinays in particular) who wants to learn about fashion and styling... Really a good style book reference! Excellent from cover to cover!(and you will start wishing for more tips) ♥

My own styling tips:  Creating your own personal style... if you're not comfortable in with an outfit, don't wear it! (Just because it's "uso")  Your awkwardness will definitely show.  If you FEEL what you're wearing... you will definitely look amazingly great and stunning!  One important thing to remember: Styling should not be expensive... Mix your old, with a new (I do this all the time)!   Invest on classic outfits and accessories...

Don't copy one's style... create your own... that's how people will remember you...

Happy Styling!♥ xoxo
