Uptown Girl

Plains and Prints unveils classy, fun Pre-Fall Collections 2014

Flattering silhouettes, vivid colors, and out-of-the-box prints. Class and sophistication meet bold and fun details. All these and more describe the fabulous ensemble that leading women’s clothes brand Plains and Prints has assembled for its Pre-Fall Collection.
Conceptualized by topnotch designer and Plains & Prints Creative Director Rhett Eala with the unique and sophisticated Plains and Prints woman in mind, the Pre-Fall Collection was  unveiled at a tea party at the new Plains and Prints store, located on the 5th Level  of Shangri-la Plaza Mall, EDSA, Mandaluyong City, with no less than the Plains and Prints woman herself – Anne Curtis. The Plains and Prints Pre-Fall Collection is composed of four sets of off-the-rack ensembles that range from the playful, to the romantic, to the sophisticated.
Especially made for girly-girls is the Fleur de Lis collection. Giving off a romantic and very feminine vibe inspired by this year’s color, radiant orchid pink, Fleur de Lis uses different methods of printing to create interesting effects on the fabric in vibrant shades of fuchsia, purple, peach, and pink. 
“Fleur de Lis was inspired by the color of the year, radiant orchid. I lifted a lot of inspiration from flowers, most especially their colors. I wanted to capture daintiness and sophistication all in one collection,’’ Eala notes.



“With Uptown Girl, plains and prints focuses on creating very classy, sophisticated silhouettes and details. Audrey Hepburn never left our mind while we were designing the clothes, asking ourselves, what would she wear?’” Eala adds.
Meanwhile, the Flights of Fancy collection features a twist on a classic wardrobe staple – the button down polo shirt. Repurposing it to something fun and fancy, in vibrant prints and interesting colors, the regular button-down shirt becomes trendier.
“Polo shirts are such a staple in office wear. They wanted to give it a twist with this collection. The pieces from Flights of Fancy can take you from the office to, maybe, an after work hang out,” says Eala.


Cosmopolitan ladies will certainly go for the Uptown Girl collection. Inspired by no less than the ultimate uptown girl herself - actress and style icon Audrey Hepburn - this collection features feminine silhouettes with glamorous, rich details in bold shades of blues, yellows, and oranges. It goes without saying that this collection is pure style and grace, much like Audrey.



Inspired by the warm autumn sunshine is the California Dreamin’ collection. In pretty shades of pink and green, the collection features shift dresses, waist dresses, and pants popping out with dainty details. The collection is tailor-fit for women who like a more natural vibe yet still want to look polished and professional.
 “Through very sweet colors and very much nature-inspired details, the California Dreamin’ collection gives out a refreshing, cool vibe,” says Eala.



The new collections embody the look that the fiercely independent professional woman goes for - well-polished, trendy, and unique. 
“The Plains and Prints woman is not afraid to try trends or to stand out in her outfits.  She always has a fun element in her clothes because she could go from a busy day at work to a fun night out with friends. She is always well put together, and you will never ever see her dull and boring,” describes Eala.

Plains and Prints has always been known for its chic, trendy apparel choices for the modern, sophisticated, Filipino woman.

Sunflower









 Hi guys! here's another way to wear a plain white shirt. This outfit would look better if I wore accessories with it. The reason why I don't have any is because I thought I already prepared it the night before. But obviously, I didn't. I must have been sleepy or really tired. but anyway, going back. Here's another way to wear a basic white shirt. Imagine this outfit with accessories, and you're definitely ready to hit the mall with your girlfriends or a movie night with the boyfriend. The good thing about this outfit is you can also wear this with flats if you're not comfortable wearing heels. Just don't forget to wear accessories like I did, okay? 
my basic tees series isn't done yet. I'm just getting started. You guys will be surprised on how a simple white and black shirt can be worn anywhere and would still look very stylish. 


OUTFIT DETAILS:

WHITE SHIRT: ZARA BASIC
SKIRT: TOPSHOP
SHOES: ALDO 
WATCH: MICHAEL KORS
BRACELET: CHARRIOL 
LIPSTICK: MAC RIRI WOO


PS. I also recommend BENCH basic tees. 
I recently bought all the colors. It's comfy and very affordable. 
Will blog about it soon. :)

School Girl


Some of you have been asking me what I wear in school.
Well, here's an example of what I normally wear. I'm always in Jeans, flats and basic tees or tank tops like this but I wear them with a cardigan because it's insanely cold in my building. I know some of you might be thinking why I don't dress up in school. Well I only have one reason, It's because I want to feel comfy the whole day. There are days when I'm in school from 8 in the morning until 7 in the evening. So i really like wearing outfits that will help me get through the day without having to worry about anything. But of course I always add accessories to bring life to my lazy outfit. It really changes the look. And as i've shared to you guys in previous posts, I commute to school everyday. That's why jeans is always a big check for me when it comes to school dressing. Besides, jeans are very flexible. You can wear them with heels, flats, rubber shoes, sandals, you name it. It would still look nice on you. It's really just depends on how you wear it. I will do a series of my school outfits here on the blog on the coming days. So you guys will have an idea on what I'm talking about.

Sky High



It's official, I have decided to stop wearing black and white for a while. B&W is my ultimate go to color in everything! But I decided to put it to rest for now and start wearing light and happy shades. Yup! I'm wearing ripped jeans again. My love for ripped jeans isn't going away soon. Wore this outfit on a day filled with just ME, MYSELF AND I. Finals are coming very soon. So i'm taking advantage of the free time I have for blogging and some "me time". Girls, having your "ME TIME" at least once a week is very important. Us girls need our alone time as well to just do whatever we want. Like go to the salon, get our nails done, have a massage or go to the spa. Always have time for yourself. Even just for a day. It makes you feel good not only on the outside but also on the inside. 







OUTFIT DETAILS: 
TOP: ZARA
JEANS: TOPSHOP
SHOES: ZARA
WATCH: MICHAEL KORS
BRACELET: CHARRIOL
SHADES: SM ACCESSORIES
LIPPIES: MAC (RIRI WOO)

Ripped

As promised, here's an outfit post for you guys. 
A few weeks ago I did a shoot for my Management. And they gave me the freedom to style myself with the help of the stylists of course. But for some outfits, I really wanted to show my personality. And this is one of the outfits I styled. As some of you already know, I've an obsession with ripped jeans lately. It's just so easy to style. Even if I wear a plain shirt with it, my look won't look too simple. It would actually look chic especially if you wear heels with it. This look is my night out look. I actually wore these jeans to school paired with a white shirt and flats. I just changed my top to a cropped top and wore red heels to bring more life to my outfit. And don't forget the accessories. The accessories can really change the whole look to any outfit. If I didn't wear any accessories, my outfit would look boring. Agree? So girls, Just when you think jeans and a Plain shirt is hopeless, THINK AGAIN. :)

Grateful

Hi guys! I'm back! SIE is back. Sorry for not updating for so long! as some of you already know, my laptop crashed and it just out of nowhere didn't want to turn on. So I had to put the blog to rest for awhile. But now, there is no reason for me not to update my blog anymore, because I just recently purchased a new laptop with my own money. It feels amazing when you actually purchase something that came or is a result of hard work. My mom raised us that way. We should save if we want something. And that really disciplined my siblings and I to save. Especially now that we are older and have more "wants" than we were younger, we get to treasure and value each purchase because we bought it with our own money. I won't lie, it does sometimes annoy me when I can't get what I want right away, but that's life. You can't have it all, all the time. But when the time is right and you get to buy that item after saving up for it for so long, is the BEST FEELING in the world. I'm really thankful for my mom for raising all of us so well. Our parents may annoy us 99% of the time, by telling us the difference of what's right or what's wrong every single day of our lives. But honestly, without them we would be nothing. My mom taught me everything I needed to know about life for 20 years. We had a lot of misunderstandings along the way, but all of them just made our relationship stronger and made me appreciate her more for everything that she has done and sacrificed for all of us. She always pushed me to be the best that I can be. And one day, I know i'm going to make her proud. Why am I sharing this to you guys? because I want you all to appreciate life and the people who stood by you through all your ups and downs more. After everything that happened to me and my family for the past few months, I really did appreciate my life and my family and friends who never left my side even more. I also saw the ones who I thought were my friends, but left. I learned to let go of them and move forward. You don't need a million friends in this life if only 2 of them gives a shit about you. Only keep the ones that will stand by you no matter what. I'm really grateful and blessed to have my best friends, my boyfriend, Mikyle, and YOU my readers for standing by me when I was so down and couldn't even help myself get back up. ALL OF YOU are the reason why I'm back, standing tall and HAPPY. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you so much for all your love and support. In return, I promise to never give up and keep moving forward. CHEERS EVERYONE! For a better Style Is Eternal coming your way, and for BETTER DAYS. :)
