Rainy day friday

Hello guys! I've been featured in SM-Youth's Campus Style Fashion Radar! I remember it was a rainy day and I just got back from shopping in SM Mall of Asia. I got first dibs on all the fabulous sale items in Forever 21 just because I went there so early. Haha. There were lots of fabulous finds ranging from only P200-P450! I''ll show them to you in my future outfit shots. Hihi.

I paired this printed top with a bold colored skirt and minimal accessories for a classy vibe. You can also opt to do print on print by pairing a top like this with skirts/shorts/pants with a larger print. I want to see your style as well! Hope you can leave a comment here on how you pulled off the print on print trend. :)

Denim on Denim

I've always wanted to do denim on denim. I bought a denim top but after trying it out at home, I realized that it doesn't look good tucked into a pair of denim shorts. I resorted to this denim vest instead (which is actually my sister's, haha). I wore an orange tank and this pair of lovely shoes so as to add some color to my outfit. You can also experiment with the denim on denim trend by trying on different cuts and washes. Hope you can also share your thoughts about this trend by leaving a comment below. :)

Hey It's Alyssa Yu x Fit Avenue giveaway! (CLOSED)

My love for nail polish started out on the 'ber' months of last year. I remember that I even included it in my Christmas wish list post last year. I didn't receive any bottles of nail polish that Christmas but my sister received five! I think I was able to use them even more than she did. Haha!

Press Shift

Remember the big Mango sale two months ago? Well, I couldn't resist the low prices for such good quality clothing so I ended up buying heaps. One of them is this shift dress. This dress hugs my body in all the right places and that's not a usual thing to see especially with me having no figure at all. Anyway, I wore this outfit to a formal school event last month. This will be my last year in college and I'll be graduating next year! Finally!!! :)

Thank you Sherry Yao for the photos!

The Girl in Pink

I told you in one of my posts that I'm not usually a fan of pink, but right now I can't get enough of it! Next color to love: red! I've always found the color red unflattering. Last night, I was looking for something red to wear on a birthday celebration. And being the Chinese that I am, we are required (not really required, but more of highly recommended) to wear red on birthdays. I didn't find a single one on my wardrobe. Hmm, does red-orange count? Haha.

Happy first birthday Hey, It's Alyssa Yu!

I can't believe it's been a year since I started this blog. Looking back, I barely recognize this quiet girl who only kept to herself, too embarrassed to tell the world who she was and what she was capable of. I admit that there had been so many changes in my life and this blog helped me to improve and change for the better. This blog means a lot to me and this is why I'm celebrating my blog's first year in the online world! :)

There are so many things I have to be thankful for. I wouldn't be in this place without my readers who give me constant inspiration to keep posting in this blog. I want to thank my boyfriend, Ryan, for being ever so patient with me especially if I have to tell everyone to stop and pause at the most inconvenient of situations just so I can take a picture of it, and for the endless suggestions he gave me to improve this blog; to my sister, Via who I always ask to proofread my blog posts (I was never that good in grammar) and the one I turn to for help every time I have to choose one picture over another; and to my friends who supported me all the way (shout out to Phya, Fran, Marianne and Cindylene!) I experienced so many ups and downs- there was even a point when I wanted to shut down this blog because I thought that this was not going to be long term. But hey, people sacrifice for the things they love doing. And blogging is definitely one of mine.

Thank you so much to my followers and for all the comments you left on my posts. Thanks to my sponsors- Fab Manila, Feet for a Queen and Twinkies Inc.. I never expected that my blog will be this successful and to tell you the truth, that it will last this long.  I learned so much from this experience and I wouldn't be here without all of you. Again, thank you! :)
