Sigh Styles Concept for Sunstar: Plus Size is In

Gone are the days when the "curvy" ladies are hiding in their shells.  Everyone is equally treated now.  The big and small are now sharing the same spotlight.
I have been contributing to SUNSTAR newspaper since 2013 and have styled and photographed models that have skinny figures.  Last April of this year, I realized, why not feature a 'curvy' model and explore the fashion of plus sizes.

I was overwhelmed to get another nod by Ms. Kara Mae Noveda to do a photo shoot for PLUS SIZE Fashion which was featured in SUNSTAR newspaper - Shopping Bag section on May 23, 2014.

The next 5 photos below made it on print.
My styling for this Plus Size concept encompasses the idea of the body as a canvass to express one's self through fashion and strut daily that exuding confidence, telling the world, who cares if I'm not skinny.
Being chubby or plump or obese is not a hindrance to look good and feel good about oneself.  And in fashion, being overweight is no longer a problem.  Fashion brands now offer a motley of clothing for the multiple-X-L size.

In dressing-up for your curves, one must always remember to choose clothing that will complement your body shape and size and of course, your personality.  Choose a style that will define you, not destroy you.  

Dressing appropriately is always a number one consideration, i.e., dress according to the occasion, to the event, to the crowd you will be with and even to the weather.


Meet ROSECEL, my 18-year-old cousin, who is the perfect model for this concept.

Rosecel has always been a support as she is the resident assistant to the fashion stylist of Sigh Styles and has somehow learned the rudiments of fashion styling.





I dearly hope you have learned something from this styling stint. To all 'curvy' ladies out there, be inspired, buy that dress you always wanted from your favorite shop, take out those pretty heels and DRESS TO IMPRESS and DRESS TO EXPRESS!

Live in style, everyday!

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.


Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…

Shopping in Woodstock and Kennesaw, Georgia, U.S.A.

Woodstock is a city in Cherokee County, Georgia, United States. The population was 29,898 at the 2015 census. Originally a stop on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, Woodstock is part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. And Kennesaw is a city northwest of Atlanta, Georgia.

How To Be Comfy Yet Chic to a Winter Vacation in Hong Kong

I always desire to have a winter vacation in Hong Kong.  Though, I actually have experienced it last 2013 with my family, see HERE,  but such desire never ceases and is always haunting me. Whenever December arrives, the hopes reach its acme. Thankfully,  January of this year, my wishful thinking and flaming desires turned to reality, again!

Why have a Vacation on Winter time? 
Despite I easily get cold feet and hands when temperature drops, I am so in love with winter time as it provides an entirely fresh sense of being assuredly away from home, which screams, you're on vacation! And, the fact that winter does not visit the Philippines makes the season more exciting.  More so, dressing-up for a winter season is such a fun and stimulating activity.  Even the thought of wearing my boots certainly thrills me.
