So My Heart Dropped and Sank to the Ground. This is Couldn't Be Happening.

The long hiatus may seem like I am turning back on a lot of things that is related to fashion. But I just don't have the time and the drive to be all cheery and fashion-focused anymore. I started this blog way back in 2009 when I was still a teen obsessed with fashion and the fashion world. Don't get me wrong, I still love fashion that's probably why I had to come back today to post something that really struck a cord.

When the New York Times entered my feed, I  couldn't believe what I was reading. I was so preoccupied with the thought of his passing that my thumb could no longer scroll the screen of my phone. There it was, in bold letters. Karl Lagerfeld, Dead.

I looked up to him and the many things he does. It amazes me that he was able to define luxury and how he stayed true to his craft for so many years. I am very sad to know that one of the top fashion  designers or our times are slowly fading away and are slowly being replaced with new legends. The thought of that alone couldn't escape my mind, I hang-on to so many classic fashion designers and am deeply disheartened to know that no one as good as him could ever replace the House of Lagerfeld and Chanel. *sigh

May his soul rest in peace, I mourn with the millions of fans and the many fashionists out there! We lost a star, we lost a legend, we lost Karl. I know that the fashion world could still recover but the fashion world will surely be different without him, without his taste, with out his avant-garde grandeur. I will surely miss looking forward to his designs, I will miss him being a relevant fashion-icon.  

Goodbye Karl, thank you! You were my inspiration growing up, you gave me so much to look forward to when I was still young and innocent of the world, you inspired me to pursue fashion and to really up my taste when it comes to understanding fashion for what it truly is, you ignited hope in my heart, and for that, I will  be forever grateful.



Ariana Grande and Her Sexy 'Let Me Love You' Music Video

I am not that much of a fan when it comes to Ariana Grande but her 'Let Me Love You' music video is just utterly too too! It's too cute for me to miss. Been searching for the music video on Youtube but it's not available there yet, maybe because of some copyright issues or whatnot. Anyhooha, here's her music video.

What are your thoughts on this? Comment on the link below.

Gone Was Any Trace of You

Woke up early today to a cloudy sky. I ought to be out running but something about the weather made me skip my usual morning routine.

For months on end I had kept myself busy with work, business and a little bit of writing (this explains why I haven't really had any decent post lately), thinking that my emotions will die on me like a candle on a wick. 

Little did I realize that I was playing with fire. And like fire, if you don't deal with it immediately, it will catch up on you- swallowing you whole. 

This brings me to the importance of 'closure' in our lives; in little random things, like when we have ended a day's worth of task, our search for wisdom and understanding, or even from the relationships we all wish to move on from. Closure is important.

What's scary about the effects of not being able to achieve closure is the huge possibility of regret. Regret may be just a word to some of you, but to others, it was an emotion, a force so strong that t had the power to come back and haunt them for the rest of their lives. 

I have had my own fair share of regrets in my life. I would be crazy if I would say that I didn't have any. I had a handful of them, occasionally popping out on unsuspecting occasions, but I have learned to manage them all when I understood the importance of 'closure'.

If like me, you too have had a chance with this destructive emotion and learned to deal with it, I truly admire you. I can only imagine the inner personal things you had to go through to triumph over this emotion.

Today, I am once again meeting with this emotion, and I may still be in the dark and at a loss for the right mindset to deal with this subtle tragedy (and I may even still be dwelling in the moment), but I have set to myself the intention to believe that one day, when the time is right, I too will have my chance. I just had to feel everything right now, the good and the bad.

And I also need to learn to forgive myself for these untimely episodes in my life (sorry for ranting on this fashion blog). I know, the things I put myself into, right? It's hard, but I know deep down inside that it's the right thing to do, and when I have truly achieved this 'forgiveness' only then will I believe that I have achieved closure.



Holy Biceps! More Superman, More Henry Cavill, More Bulge! (Action Figure Not Included)

It seems only yesterday when I realized that I had to move on from Brandon Routh's sleek hip-hugging style brief and signature curl on Superman Returns because it was no match for the then recently-cultivated appetite for Henry Cavill and his tight bulge spandex in the 2011 Zack Snyder movie, Man of Steel. I can still close my eyes to that one proverbial day when every cell of my being was screaming in sheer ocular orgasmic pleasure while I was busy drooling over how hot Henry Cavill was in the movie.

Though the movie had it's own drawbacks — a dragging story, erratic scene cuts, character developments and whatnot; I still was drawn to the action-packed, power-goodness, muscle sweating, muscle flexing and oozing sex-appeal that the movie had.

Speaking of Henry Cavill and his ridiculous sex-appeal, I realized that the movie's release date is still on the 25th of March 2016, and it's already creating all the hype as early as now. What is he hiding behind that robe anyway? A potential bulge perhaps?

You know what this means ladies and fembots? Oh Yes. 8 more months to go and Superman is so ready to come to the rescue! I mean, look at those err ... bionic biceps! And that chiseled face, he looks like a Greek testosterone-induced god. I have no words to say actually, except that Henry Cavill is very good looking, and that I intend to marry him someday. Ha. (wishful thinking).

What are your thoughts on Henry Cavill making a comeback in the new Superman movie? What are your thoughts on his bulge chiseled bod? and lastly, how does Henry Cavill's Superman suit make you feel? We thought so too.

That said, can't wait to see the movie and to see you all lining up as well! May we all have another drool-worthy session of Henry Cavill and his manliness.

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?
