Thrilla in Manilla: Le Placard de Mary Nicole

How would you describe your style?
I believe my style is humble yet eclectic. I think it's majorly influenced
by my love for music and art. I like simple vintage pieces such as denim, lace
and leather paired with bold graphic or patterned prints. I either tend to
follow a color scheme when it comes to dressing up or just follow the mood of
some song stuck in my head. I am often indecisive and random when it comes on
choosing what to wear but I'm just glad to look pleasantly human every time I
step out of the house.

Where do you get your clothes?
Most of the time I get my clothes from bazaars because of all the good
bargains and one-of-a-kind designs they have. Plus, you could always haggle for
a lower price. I also get my clothes from retail stores at malls of course such
as Zara, Forever 21, Topshop, Mango, & Department stores. When I have the time,
I like to have clothes made or go shopping in vintage thrift stores. When I
don't have the time and I feel really stressed-out, I go online shopping for a
bit of retail therapy on Multiply or Facebook which I've noticed has become
really popular lately.

What is #1 on your fashion wish list at the moment?
I'm a sucker for good shoes! #1 on my fashion wishlist would be a pair of
black Jeffrey Campbell wedges!

"My room has two closets. A sliding mirror closet where I put all my belts, bags, blazers, jackets, coats and sweaters and a few of my shoes in. My second closet is where I put my tops and bottoms as well as dresses. I also have a shoe rack with a few of my favorite pairs placed inside my room. "

My Favorite Pieces come in two sets:
For Long Nights:
1. Betsey Johnson Bag from my last visit to the US
2. Urban Outfitters Backpack that I often use in school
3. Floral Corset from Coco Lingerie
4. Black Studded Leather Oxfords from Shoeology
5. Those Minnie Mouse ears were a Halloween present from my friend! Can't wait to use them for next year.
