leather studded vest by Phil Lapinid of BimBim Haus, Mango tank, vintage "headline" print shorts, Parisian SS2011 booties

I am someone who kind of refuses to budge when it comes to the things I wear. I will always approach new trends with caution. That's just me.I'll always hope to have that kind of panache to be able to pull new trends off REALLY well, much like a lot of my favourite bloggers do. I might cave in and try a lot of crazy awesome trends eventually, but for the moment i stick to my basic blacks and neutrals, because they are easy and they go well with everything.

IMO, a good leather jacket or vest is quintessential and very timeless. I was truly ecstatic when I found out that fellow Cebuano blogger Philip Lapinid decided to give me a fully custom studded leather vest from his new business endeavor, BimBim Haus, which is all about truly hard-edged customized one-offs and fabric treatments. Young Phil is inspired by anything from The Blonds to Jeremy Scott to Kris Van Assche, and his influences flow deep in his customized pieces.

To contact BimBim Haus for your own one-off, click here. No worries, Phil. I'll be wearing this piece for a looooong time:)

I also trooped over to SM to get a new pair from their SS2011 shoe collection. ACKKKKKK! Must stay away from that department, seriously. Talk about ripping holes in my pocket!

special thanks to the boyf for taking these pictures so early in the morning. much love xx
