What I wore: Head to toe ensemble [Topshop] Calling all student shoppers, we’re in for a treat this joyful month of June! Get an...
Black and White
… and chic on the whole. Who says a black and white outfit equals boring? For one scorching summer day, I delved into good old fashioned black and white. It is a classic combination that one can never go wrong with. Another good thing about it is that by simply adding an interesting piece to your ensemble such as my zebra printed scarf, you’re all set to stylishly step out of the door. ...
Life is a Party
I first adored sheer when it made waves through sheer tops. I loved how the see-through style was a perfect display of subtly sexy. As the trend went forward, it began to express transparency in a surprising way through the form of sheer overlay skirts. With this leggy look, I fancied to have elegance as a feature by finishing off the whole ensemble with sparkles of silver and gems. Hair and...

What's in my Lunch Box?
Yes, just like a little kindergarten kid, I bring a lunch box to school. Amidst all of the tempting restaurants present around Taft, it’s so easy to give in and gain (unwanted) weight. :| Due to this fact, I try my best to choose what I eat. Here are some of the foods that you will regularly find in my lunch box. Clockwise L-R: M&M’s Bite Size Cookies- Who doesn’t love the crunch of a...
Ayala Style Origin 2012
I played photographer for RSSI as gorgeous beings fully clad in Topman, Topshop and Warehouse garb graced the runway at the Ayala Style Origin fashion show held last April 20th at Greenbelt 5. Here are my runway photographs from the stylish scene.
A Summer to Remember
One (and actually my favorite) challenge for RSSI’s League of Fashion 2012 was a short fashion film with notable blogger David Guison as our director, who I am personally a follower of. The theme that he gave us was “Fun Outdoor Summer” and everyone unquestionably had fun despite the baking heat of mister sun! I was tasked to pullout clothes from Dorothy Perkins and this ensemble was what I came...

Taking cue from Topshop’s Pageant Princess Trend, I created this outfit on conversational prints and all things girly. Deviating from the “good girl gone bad” vibe by chucking out boots, leather jackets and grunge whatnots, I expressed my version of Pageant Princess through this tickled pink ensemble. What I wore: White graphic printed tank dress and Hot pink heart clutch [Hong Kong], Hot pink...
The heat of summer sunshine… is nothing but cray! In order to beat the heat, I dressed in a stress-free sheer shirt and complemented its sunny yellow hue with touches of turquoise. This ensemble was what I wore to a spontaneous Sunday out with Gabby and my sister, Dana. What I wore: Turquoise tube bandeau and Gray strappy cork wedges [Hong Kong], Yellow Cotton On sheer shirt [Gift], Brown...
Bonjour, mes chéris
Hello, my darlings! Here is an up-to-the-minute photo of me taken just a few moments ago.

Follow me on Instagram! <3 @cristinadecena arrajurado: Hello, Arra! Bandage skirts are very versatile that you can...
I love how a bandage skirt exudes sexiness in a subtle way. It is a very versatile piece of clothing that I can’t help hoarding it in all prints and colors! As my bandage baby already hugged my curves, I chose to balance and match it up with a conversely loose-fitting top. Sparkly silver accents were the finishing touches to this ensemble. What I wore: Black cropped top, Silver rhinestones over...

Be prepared for a set of snapshots wherein I could pass as a legit vampire. A hippie vamp, that is. By now, you may have already noticed that the bohemian trend is something that I get stuck on customarily. Since it is all about looking like you just threw on threads in the blink of an eye, I definitely enjoy the free spirited vibe that comes with each ensemble along with the exceptional comfort...

Extra Leg Room
Bid adieu to your skinny jeans and say hello to the trendiest trouser in town. Palazzo pants are a fresh and fashionable alteration to the maxi skirt’s stress-free style. And in this case, the bigger the better! I paired mine with a crisp white shirt along with a polished belt to accentuate my waist. In addition, I went for a graceful and grown up look by putting my hair up in an effortless bun. ...
