Teen Vogue redesign
Confession: I never read Vogue; just Teen Vogue. It’s the first and only magazine I ever subscribed to. It’s had its ups and downs the last few years, but I think that no other fashion magazine has been so able to successfully assert itself in both digital and print (it’s 2×3 now!) mediums.
Available on most magazine stands, but hit up an Emerald Headway, Bufini, or Book Sale to support smaller establishments.
I haven’t screwed up using this yet, so I’m guessing it’s idiot-proof. I saw this on a random Facebook before (you know the ones)—it’s basically a travel-sized steamer that, yes, makes perfect collars but also unfolds flat for larger surfaces. It even has 5 temperatures, specific to different types of fabric: poly, silk, wool, cotton, denim, and linen.
Available for order at collarperfect.com.
Pixi H20 Skin Tint
I’ve ignored tinted moisturizers for the longest time, because I could never find a good shade match, and I finally found it in Pixi’s darkest available shade (I was surprised; I’m usually an NC25) for its H20 Skin Tint. And damn, I get it now.
Available at COMMON THREAD in PowerPlant Mall.
The Future is Female top
I would buy it in a heartbeat — International Women’s Day or nah. I’m a sucker for basically any merchandise that lets me wear my advocacies on my sleeve (pretty literally).
The legally remade version of this shirt is available on otherwild.com with 25% of the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.
Harlan + Holden Panel Control Top
I’m in dire need of tops. I realized just this morning that the top to bottom ratio of my closet is probably at 1:10 — this revelation, of course, came after I had just bought four new pairs of pants the night before. Harlan + Holden makes wonderful wardrobe staples that you can wear again and again in many different ways. A piece I’m currently eyeing is the panel control top in white. That funnel neck is a game changer.
Harlan+Holden can be found in Adora Greenbelt 5, SM Mega Fashion Hall, Shangri-La Plaza, and The 30th. The brand also currently has pop-up stores in Rockwell Powerplant and SM Aura.
Zara Gingham Slingback Shoes
If I could afford it, the first thing I’d put on this list is basically anything for Mansur Gavriel’s latest collection. Alas, I wouldn’t wanna lie to you guys so here is what might just be the next best thing: gingham-printed kitten heels.
My favourite Zara branch is the one in Greenbelt 5 — it always just seems to have the best finds.
Kiehl’s Vitality Skin Renewing Cream
After a botched attempt at removing my blackheads that left some parts of my skin peeled off, I decided to douse my face with this product one night. It’s quite a miracle maker, because the skin magically healed after I woke up. Amazing.
