According to Len- "I was born and raised in one of the beautiful Islands in the Philippines. I’m a momma, writer, fashion lover, and lipstick consumer. I live in Texas.
I love my family. God blessed me with a hardworking husband and three wonderful kids. Being a wife and a mother is an incredible responsibility. It’s challenging, rewarding, important, and fun. I consider it a gift and a privilege, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. I started this blog back in 2015 without any expectation of it becoming what it is today.
It was and continues to be a journey of which my readers have become a part of. A journey of who I am through what I am wearing and what I am inspired by. A journey that will continue to be developed, to be improved, and continue to inspire. I snap everything from fashion and food to Texas and cities across the world for the blog– and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’m glad you’re here to join me!"
- On MonoChrome looks- An easy—and often stylish—way to wear outfits is to stick to monochromatic pieces. You know you’ve done it on lazy days. You pull out a pair of black pants, a black turtleneck, throw on your black leather bomber jacket and black boots and head out the door. The word “monochromatic” breaks down into two pieces: “mono” meaning single and “chromatic” meaning color. So a monochromatic outfit would consist of pieces of one color. This doesn’t mean that you would only wear solid black or solid red from head to toe. No, the joy of a monochromatic outfit is wearing different shades and tints of the same color. Monochrome. It’s one of the secrets to looking effortlessly chic, and is such an easy way to elevate your look, without putting in a lot of effort. It’s a go-to style secret that I incorporate regularly into my outfits – it’s a street style favorite for good reason.
- On how to wear ruffles- Today’s fashion main trait is that it allows us to get creative with a trend and mix it more easily into our style and personality. What we get then is a sea of Ruffle options: ruffled tops (busy or super subtle), ruffled skirts, dresses, shorts, bags, or even shoes… . And that is fantastic especially for those who feel a bit overwhelmed by the idea of draping themselves in this flamenco attire. On the other hand a bit of ruffle will make an outfit more feminine and less stiff, making it look like you’re having loads of fun with fashion. The risk of looking like you’re stuck in your 80’s prom or channeling your inner clown might not be so inherent if you find that fashion balance. I know I always encourage everyone to not obey all fashion rules, but… there might just be a few cases when it’s better to be smart about it, rather than wild and flipping the bird all over the place.
