joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I went to a fashion show with my friend Nina (check her chictopia at: http://www.chictopia.com/user/blog/ninaestacio) at Fly and it showcased new collections of young up and coming designers in the country.

Whenever me and N come out to play, being that we are style and soul sisters after all, we always set outfit THEMES (funny right?) just to make our clothing more in sync and so we look extra fierce when we stand next to each other.

The two of us were never quite the wall flowers.
We loved to stand out in a crowd of party-goers in LBDs.

Setting a theme doesn’t mean looking like Thelma and Louise or Romy and Michelle.

We don’t wear the same clothes in different colors, mind you. We make the theme fit our style, our vibe that day and what we have in our closets, which are on rotation by the way.

And the theme we set for the night was SOULJA (Soldier Military-Inspired Outfits). She wore a buttoned blazer and I opted for a jumpsuit, which I justified was Airforce-ish, hence soulja!

The jumpsuit was a random find from the mall when I was helping my mom choose clothes for my grand dad’s birthday.

I saw it. Wanted it. Tried it on. GOT IT!

A lot of people frown when news came about the comeback of the JUMPSUIT/ Romper/ Playsuit. I wasn’t one of them! I always loved jumpsuits (since I was like 3? When I wore my first one-piece catsuit Halloween cat woman costume) and I’ve continued to love it till now!

It’s tricky to wear it but i think all it takes is the right piece, the right accessories, the perfect fit and the attitude to wear it.

And while I opted for beige accents with a few orange/ camel accents, I thought that the look was so classic and elegant and it was hella comfy too!

I did not add a belt since this one came with a beige one that was attached and sewn in to the jumpsuit around the waist and was thus very impossible to remove.

I wore a few accent pieces but I didn’t really want to make a shocking statement as black accessories would so I went for Rust ones which I believe complemented the look and made the just right accent I was aiming for.

The colors are very neutral but I loved it that way.

I think the colors I wear are never constant and I can go rainbow to subdued in a new york minute.

My outfit from a week back ( the candy-colored one) was features in Preview’s (a popular Fashion magazine here) at their online ’zine site. It was a feature for “statement necklaces” and I made the cut.

I love this page… it totally rivals style.com in it’s fashion forward features and chic sartorial style but it is fairly new to the world wide web. MAKE IT A DAILY HABIT!

Check out http://www.stylebible.ph too see their other fabulous features!

Till the next post!
XOXO

it's hard finding a jumpsuit that fits but you really found a gem in this and it looks great on you!
joannaladrido
joannaladrido on October 16
indeed. it's tricky and you definitely have to try it on the fitting room no matter what! the proportions are deceiving. that saying that goes you always find something when you're not looking for it was so true in this jumpsuit's case!
