Wear Red, Wear Hope

More than a month ago, tragedy struck Japan. Millions of properties and thousands of lives were lost, and a multitude of people went and are still missing.

I feel guilty for being quiet about it. Frankly, I was really at loss for words regarding what happened and couldn’t figure out a thing on how to help. I know the delay is inexcusable, but I’d rather be late than never present.

Chictopia, an online fashion community similar to Lookbook.nu, has recently started a fund-raising campaign to help the victims of Japan tragedy–the Wear Red Wear Hope campaign. The campaign encourages Chictopians like me to wear and upload a photo wearing any outfit with a hint of red.

According to Chictopia:

The red circle on the Japanese flag represents what many Japanese children perceive to be the sun.  For us at Chictopia and many others in the wake of the recent crisis, it represents hope.

Every outfit post of Chictopia members wearing red will raise $1.

But if you’re not a member, you can still extend aid by donating through Red Cross here.

OR you can spread the news by sharing this post on your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Plurk or whatnot (via the buttons below), so that all Chictopians or interested donors will be informed of this cause. Let us all join hands in helping Japan.

Arigato!

Blue Crush: Trends to Try This Summer

When people mention ‘summer,’ what’s the first thing you picture? Beaches! They are like the mandatory places to go when the heat kicks in. So I thought, why not go for an all-blue outfit? Yeah, I know, people have been displaying their color blocking skillz lately, but I’d like to be different. That’s how weird I am. 🙂

Florals and denim are the two trends that never get old. They always provide this easy-breezy and relaxed vibe which makes them perfect for spring and summer. And I could not think of any style to go with  them other than Hippie.

I’ve been trying to perfect wearing head bands but they always end up slipping from my gigantic head.  Surprisingly, the one I wore yesterday fit just fine. Hurray! Thanks to Mark and Em, they also made sure my hair looked good, especially in the photos.

I consider myself very kuripot, I don’t buy tops or skirts that cost more than Php 300. I believe you can still look trendy without shelling out lots of money and, at the same time, not sacrificing quality. Did I mention that I only spent a total of Php 335 for this whole look? There are really good stuff in Divisoria. Some of them I’ve seen in Trinoma and SM sold at a higher price. Divisoria is not really as scary as what many people told me; you just have to look simple so as not to catch much attention from people. Just imagine how many ensembles you can create with only Php 1, 000! 🙂
