Have a TOMATO Summer!

Now who is in summer mode? Tomato is!

One thing I love about this year’s trend is the comeback of the  1960s fashion–polka dots and vibrant colors ahoy.

Now Tomato has infused all those in their summer collection! Just look at these pieces!

What I love about them is that the pieces, the top especially, just show the right amount of skin–not too itsy bitsy *cue Itsy Bitsy Yellow Polka Dot Bikini song*–but still great for a beach trip. I’m definitely gonna grab one. Hee~

Tomato says:

CLASSIC CAN BE SEXY IN TOMATO’S 2012 SUMMER COLLECTION

Tomato Summer has the vibe of retro 60’s goldern age with a modern sexy twist of the 2000!  The country’s premier stylists Pam Quinones and Rey Ilagan teamed up with in demand Make-up and Hair stylists Robi Pinera and Raymond Santiago in this Modern Classic Marc Nicdao photoshoot that gives you the Elegance and sexy vibe of the 60’s with a very fresh, young and modern twist. 

Tomato channeled the legendary sex appeal of  Brigitte Bardo with a hint of that Cindy Crawford style.  It’s Hollywood royalty meets Fashion Icon!  Big hair and pop of colors in swimsuits and summer wear in muted and high contrast shades of green, tangerine, earth tone shades of browns and blues dominate the 2012 Tomato’s Summer Collection .  High waist cut swimsuits with sexy peek a boo details will make every woman feel like a siren while leaving the men gasping for more.  Summer beads in various colorful shades of yellow, orange, teal, green etc. are perfect accessories for the day on the beach.

For Tomato Green, it’s the 60’s clean sexy and mysterious look that’s rendered in fresh youthful contemporary style.  Brooding bad boy-good boy vibe will tingle your summer senses with Tomato Green’s 2012 Summer Collection.  It’s all about bringing out that sexy in you in comfortable clothes that are made to fit any type of body while enhancing your best features.  Above the knee thin shorts that fit close to the body with solid contrast color details are simply scene stealers, cuff shorts are most comfortable and stylish while colored chinos in green, blue, rust and red will definitely give you a fashion statement that spells confidence and style!

So hit your summer destination in Tomato’s 2012 Summer Collection!  Complete you stylish looks by wearing Tomato’s over sized summer eyewear and you are ready to go!

So if that isn’t enough to convince you to hit TOMATO stores right now, maybe this would:

HOTTT.

Blue

I know summer is supposed to be fun and pink and all, but this week has been unbelievably stressful that I didn’t get as much sleep. Fortunately, I was done with my final project and was able to submit it to my professor 10 minutes before the deadline. Imagine my relief when I thought I was late!

So my face says it all. But I feel a looot better now though. I hit the sack yesterday at around 6PM (yesss, that early!) and woke up at around 5AM today. Awesome sleep is awesome. I feel like a newly freed prisoner. Haha.

Peek-a-boo! I really love this top I bought at Forever 21. Blogger Domz spotted it when she styled me for the Face Affair. This didn’t make the cut though so I purchased it instead. Isn’t it gooorgeous? Tops or dresses with “sexy backs” can still look decent if the front has a modest cut, see?

I’ve always believed that less is more (not in clothing though, heh). I can go out of the house sans jewelry, you never even see me overaccessorize. If I’m wearing rings, I seldom wear bracelets. I’m quite small so I think too much accessories would make me look more like a dwarf. To compensate for the lack of height though, I wear heels. Would you believe that I have more pairs of heels than flats? 😛

Models I Stalk

When I was kid, if I’m not watching foreign TV series or animes, I ogle at the models taking the catwalk at FashionTV (FTV). I clearly remember how envious I was of their lean bodies and legs that go on forever (for obvious reasons). From that same TV show I first saw Gemma Ward, who at the time was only a mere 16-year-old.

Gemma Ward

Ward in San Francisco, 15 March 2007

Ward debuted in Australia fashion week when she was only 15, and after a year, found herself walking in Prada, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, and Calvin Klein. Her baby doll features inspired the fashion world so much, helping her become the youngest model to ever appear on Vogue alongside 2004 supermodels.

Currently, Gemma Ward, now 24, has taken an indefinite leave in the modeling scene and began pursuing an acting career. Three years ago, she became the talk of the town when she gained weight, which probably caused her to leave. I still love her, nonetheless.

Coco Rocha

I first heard of Coco Rocha when she modeled a Project Runway contestant’s winning jumpsuit. I was completely in awe at her poses as I have never actually seen anyone do those stuff in action. Her shots were featured in a Marie Claire billboard on Time Square:

Just look at those poses and faces, I mean, who does that? Apparently, Rocha, 23, does this quite often, which probably explains why she is so in demand at the moment. The industry refers to her as “The Queen of Poses.”

Sasha Pivovarova

When I first saw her, my initial thought was: “Gemma’s back!”

Apparently not, although Sasha and Gemma are always talked about online for looking like twins almost. Sasha, now 27, began her career about five years ago. Upon signing with IMG models, Prada immediately presented her with a three-year contract.

Along with Coco Rocha, Chanel Iman, and other models, this Russian model was featured in Vogue magazine cover titled “The World’s Next Top Models.”

Karlie Kloss

On the runway for Diane von Furstenberg, Spring 2009

Karlie Kloss became a legit model when she was only 14 years old (O.O). I know right. Currently 19 years old, Karlie has already walked for hundreds of high-fashion labels, among which are Givenchy, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Valentino, etc.

I like her for her quirky, fun attitude most especially when she walked for Victoria’s Secret last year. I didn’t exactly expect to see her there, but it was nice.

P.S. I know I failed to update my blog again. I couldn’t fit this in my crazy schedule at the moment. I apologize. So I made this quick post just to let you guys know that I might be “off the radar” (sort of), until the end of the month. You can follow me on Twitter though, I sometimes type absurd things there. Hoho.
