The Age of Adaline: The New Fashion Movie

When it comes to movies that would leave a mark in a fashionable person's heart, throw in a good dramatic plot, a beautiful actress, an array of vintage-inspired clothing, a touch of magic and you'd be sure to have a huge number of fans joining the bandwagon and rushing towards the big screen. 

After all, what fashionable person could ever resist the pleasure of seeing some wonderful All-American classic pieces that could pretty much influence their style for years to come? My thoughts so too.

One very good example of is the movie that premiered a few days ago entitled 'The Age of Adaline', starring Gossip Girl's very own, Blake Lively.

The fist time I saw the trailer, I already knew that it's surely going to be added to the very short list of favorites that I will gladly enjoy watching over and over till I memorize all the character lines  happen to enjoy. I don't know about you guys, but every time I see movies like this I feel like I have a deeper calling, like I am meant to see this (word, I know).

So without a single thread of a doubt, the day it premiered I made the obviously easy decision to hit the theaters with my besties and have a heck of a good time. Oh yes, it was that easy! I just knew I'd love it the moment I first laid eyes on that Gucci silk beach ball print pleated dress. And as sure as the sun and the moon, after the credits rolled, I left the theater with obsessive ramblings happy and excited. I have never seen a fashionably satisfying movie, not since The Devil Wears Prada (God knows how long-ago that movie was.)

Kudos to Angus Strathie for the fabulous pieces of artistic elegance. I enjoyed the everyday looks of Blake Lively in this movie. Every scene, and I mean EVERY SCENE.

Enough chatter! If you haven't seen the movie yet, get a glimpse of the movie's trailer here:

What are your thoughts on the movie? Do you feel like Blake Lively is great for this role too? Does the movie deserve to be on your top list of fashion movies? Aren't these dresses lovely or what?

The Cute Case of Hao Yun Xiang

Told ya Asians were fierce!

Okay, so I had this tinsy crush on Godfrey Gao, he's really cute and all. But I have this thing for Asian men making it big on fashion runways. Not only that. I'm not that much of a mainstream person so I kinda have reservations towards the all too familiar stereotype stories of the typical model-turned-actor. So for now Godfrey, scoot-over. There's a new Asian cutie taking the fashion scene by storm.

Ladies and fembots, feast your eyes let me introduce you to Hao Yun Xiang. This 24 year old started out as a professional athlete before he ventured into the world of modeling. Having graced the cover for GQ, Elle Men, and Manifesto magazine, he was sure to take the world by storm.

Here are some photos of his modeling ventures:

Not yet convinced? I thought so too! Move over Godfrey! There's a new God in town! (Kidding! I still love you babe!)



Salivating Over Patrick Schwarzenegger

Salivating Over Patrick Schwarzenegger

Summer just arrived here in paradise and all I can think of today is Patrick Schwarzenegger, sun, the beach, and a mango-mint ice cream in hand. Oh yes.

Though Patrick Schwarzenegger's name could make a very fine addition to my list of Tongue Twisters, I still think that he is a beaming hope to those hearts dimly-lit this summer season. Thank his lucky starts for having acquired some really good genetics coming from parents Arnold and Maria. Not only is his last name intimidating, but having a famous actor/governor for a father could throw me off in some crazy loop. Ha. 

Patrick is so good looking. I don't have enough words in me to express how I feel really. I don't know if he's well-educated, or if he has manners, but I don't have a single thread of care-hair on me right now. This eye-candy makes my eyes pop.

Isn't he like a Greek God or heaven's gift to humankind or something? OMG. Sugar? YES PLEASE!

How do you find Patrick Schwarzenegger? Is he a yes or a no? Let your thoughts be heard by adding them in the comment section below!

Fashion Find: Ash Cult Lace Up Sneakers

These Flatforms/Wedge/Platforms or Whatnot are to Die For!

Was never a shoe person I'm not really a huge fan of the idea of being called "the shoe lady" when I grow up but when I see a pair I love, I ogle on it for long periods of time and I stick to it like glue. Such is true with my recent find.

I dunno, maybe I'm just too picky when it comes to shoes? Ha. 

To be a true "fashionist", I understand that one does not have to restrict oneself when it comes to clothing, most especially when it comes to "accessorizing" a supposed #OOTD for the day or what not; fashion is supposed to be art, and artistry has no boundaries. So why did I even bother? Maybe because sometimes we have to bend the rules? After all, fashion and the idea of being fashionable may be for everyone but not 'everyone' is cut out for it (excuse the defensive monster in me). That said, I'm all up for fashion and all things in between (grey matters or not) but when it comes to shoes I find myself too picky with what to buy that I even spend countless hours in a store just to make sure that I find a pair that I would not regret buying (my apologies for all the sales people that had to go back and forth in the storage room, but I do appreciate the effort, thank you!). 

Oh, come one! Don't tell me your eyes are rolling? You have, at some point, succumb to the dilemma of choosing a pair too, right? My point exactly.


Here's the fashion find I was talking earlier about.

I knew a few months ago that the then infamous platforms was slowly making a comeback as today's 'flatforms' shoes, and  I was dying just to grab a hold of it's modern look but never, and I mean NEVER did I ever expect for the flatform to look this brilliant! I love it!

This shoe design is by Ash Cult. It's a bit prices but what fashion find isn't right?

I quite enjoy the snakeskin detailing of this white leather shoe (though I hope it's not really made of real snake skin or it would totally creep me out) and the yellow lace as well. Also find it quite brilliant is how smart the design looks from a fashion-monger's point of view of course.

With all that being said, can't wait to once again submit to corporate slavery and grab a hold of these lovely find by the end of the month!

What are your thoughts on flatforms? Do you love them as well?

A penny for your thoughts?
