I’ve been blogging for close to a decade now (pls don’t do the math haha).

Yup, if your patient enough, you’ll find a ton of blackmail photos hidden in there somewhere.

But the upside of me documenting everything is being able to look back and see just how much my style has evolved. I never realized how much fun it would be to compile a decade’s worth of summer ootd’s until I actually did it!

Read on to see how I’ve transitioned from 2007’s extreme boho with low-rise denim and lace to 2017’s more refined interpretation + everything in between.

Looking back at my fashion choices made me aware of how much I’ve changed and not (?!) 

 Join me as I take you back to my pre and present Fashion Eggplant years!



  • I have never and will never ever probably lean towards form-fitting clothes (no bodycon dresses for this one! haha, can't breathe!)
  • I’ve never really gotten over boho
  • I LOVE black and white
  • my style philosophy is probably to just inject a trend and marry it with something classic and timeless. (Yes, I only realized that now after looking at so many of my old pictures!)

And lastly, how much I rely on The SM Store to fill my closet with all the latest trends, season after season, year after year.

Their inventory just keeps on improving! 

 Back in 2007 when I was younger and my budget for clothes was smaller, my first stop for summer shopping would be the SM Store. Wether I was looking for a cool pair of shorts with unique details, cute babydoll tops, or vintage looking lace dresses, they always seemed to have what I needed and it always cost less than P1000.

See lace top above? If I remember right, I got it for around P400 only.

+ walk to the left for accessories, walk to the right for shoes.

It's always a fun one stop shop hassle free experience for me during each visit. I can spend an entire day in there just putting together whole outfits.

Those mini shopping carts are a saving grace!

I never leave feeling bad or guilty cause I spend very little and yet I get to go home with so much! :P

I just really really enjoy shopping there, it's like a grocery store for all things fashion!

So much so that to this day, even if my current fashion budget allows me to splurge a little more, I still choose to shop at The SM Store. I can't resist a quick stop each time I'm in the area.
(I'm always thinking what if they have something new!?! haha)

2011 fashion trends
And they do!

After a quick web search on trends, I pop in and grab a key piece.

Especially when I need to dress to impress for fashion week or similar events...you know when you need to make retail pass off as couture...

A long time personal favorite of mine is this dragon embroidered coordinate that I wore to PHFW:
