Inspire and Up rise

Hello 2014!!!

S already started our year and now it's my turn :)

Let me start off by saying THANK YOU. The past year has been really good to us – the launching, hunting, giveaway, and invites. There were struggles along the way, but we made it through. We are very much thankful to everyone who supported us in this venture of ours, and of course, to the people who really stood out who are worthy to be on our site.

I know what I have as a title is somewhat Hunger Games-ish (Catching Fire sequel to be exact), but this is what I really would like to achieve this year of the Wood Horse for our site. 


It’s been our aim from the very beginning to be a page that would feature everyone and anyone who are unique. We held on to a strong belief that we, Filipinos, have our own fashion sense that is yet to be known. Little by little, people start to reveal their own artistry when it comes to style.

We wanted to inspire more people this year - to push them out of their limits. As we fill up and flood your timelines to show how others stand out, may you find in yourselves your personality that outshines mediocrity. Inspire to be different, beat all the odds, be glam and fab despite of all the struggles. Inspire to wear those crazy-one-of-a-kind fashion outfits and not care what people may say.

We want to be limitless. Inspiring doesn’t end hear in Manila. We want to conquer and meet all the YOUNIQUEs in the whole Philippines. Pass on this hype and reach every boundary as far as we can.


Now don’t get me wrong with this. I don’t mean to sound like a street protester with effigies and destroy a property (no offense, I support protesters if it’s within my belief and same as what I fight for minus the violence of course). What I meant was to revolt for freedom. Free yourself to express your own style. Rebel from those typical jeans and shirt look. Don’t hesitate and get crazy and daring (but still proper and not bastusin ;) ). Rise and believe in yourself. Turn that frown upside down honey. Your smile can move others (sounds like a cheesy line but it really does work). Be confident – it starts there. Rise from the old you and be a better one.

Give yourself a makeover this year! I know you’re tired of being called “simple” or “common”. Work that creative brain of yours to change and be ahead of the crowd. Get your pens and papers, sketch or write down those ideas that you have for an outfit. Think outside the box or better yet, destroy that box and make a beautiful treasure chest of YOU!

I know and I can feel there’s a lot in-store for us this year. We would like to make it big. All of us can definitely make it happen – make the Philippine street fashion GLOBAL!

Now as per my look, well, I opted to look clean (as if I’m always messy, HAHA). An almost all white ensemble to represent a clean slate. New Year to fill up our page with amazing YOUNIQUEs! So inspired with the shoes that I got so I decided to go for this look. Now for the details : Top – Penshoppe, Skirt – thrift store, Shoes – Memorata by CLN. Just a quick trivia, I got the shoes for FREE! Yep, you read it right. Memorata by CLN had a contest on Facebook and I dared to join. Since their advocacy and YOU-NIQUEs aim were just the same, it was an easy streak for me to answer on how can I be a one-of-a-kind girl. And truly, I am, and so I won! Woohoo!

I can’t help but include our little one in the photo. She came in to me and my sister’s room as I shoot this OOTD. Everyone, meet our baby Janelle :)

I really can’t wait to see you guys again on the streets. Got a new "weapon" to shoot and capture ya’ll ;)
