Daily Thread: Tropicana / High-Low

I've been seeing the mullet style everywhere now. Everyone has really taken to the short-in-front, low-at-the-back skirt style, also referred to as "high-low." I only have one item in this style, the Joel Escober dress I wore to a wedding in Australia, but even though the market's saturated with it, I still like it. Not sure if I would buy it, though. I'm afraid it might be exiting the trend scene soon!

However, I won't say no to a bit of hemline play. When I spotted this H&M skirt, I had to have it! A cool take on the high-low trend, noh? Edgier, graphic, and very clean. I've already envisioned plenty of outfits around it. This time, I wore it with a sunny yellow tropical print top from Primark, color-block sandals from Zara (side note: I loved this style so much, I bought it in two colors! Cheaper in London at GBP29.99. Here, they're selling it for Php2,990), tribal bangles, and my oversized Lancel leather clutch.

Can I just say, I love all the new photo apps on Iphone. I'm able to "photoshop" quickly and easily, and create outfit collages like this!

Here's the other color I bought, as worn by Aimee Song, of the blog Song of Style. Love her quirky outfit!

I wore above-mentioned outfit when I had lunch with Tin of Manila Fashion Observer last Monday. I met Tin in NY, and I love her because she's down-to-earth, super friendly, hip, and of course, stylish in her own nonchalant way. I love the way she carries her designer goods—never OTT, and always discreet. You notice it because of the superb style, not because of the brand.

I also love her because she agreed to do a promo with my baby, the accessories line Martina-Martina! We've got tons of new stuff, and she's giving away three lovely pieces from our latest collections.

One of our most popular styles, the Braidy Bunch Friendship Stack (I like it, too! I wear mine almost always!)

Schoolgirl Collar Necklace in Ivory. A different take on the detachable collar trend.

Gold Tassel Necklace. A wardrobe classic! Long and fringy, just the thing to throw over a shirt and jeans/shorts.

Visit her blog to find out how you can win (super easy, promise!).


  1. I love love the shoes! Yes, I have to agree that Zara here in Europe is a lot more cheaper than in the Phils. Much more during the seasonal sales. And I want to have those bracelets too :) Mind if I ask what apps are you using for you collage? Thanks!

  2. Great style you have there! I love the friendship stack!!!

    Just followed you on GFC. :)

  3. Hey Anonymous!

    True! Zara just went on sale here and still very expensive! For the collage, I use Frame Magic on my Iphone :)
