Modern Style Sporty Chic

It has been quite awhile since I last shared my Rihoas wishlist post HERE! From the avant-garde to the modern wardrobe staples, this Hong Kong fashion brand deserves a spot on my blog and a place in my closet.

… and a few weeks back Rihoas offered me to pick two items from their new collection. It wasn't the easiest decision to make because all their clothes are fantastic. I spent a good couple of hours in their store browsing through the collection and checking on different styles. The two items that I eventually selected are this green Collared Bodycon Mini Dress that I’m wearing right now and the other one is a Button Up Blazer in green which is also included on my wishlist. I will post that on my next blog, too.

As to my outfit, I’m such a big fan of looks that combine comfort with casual sporty look because it allows you to look put together and stay comfortable like this bodycon mini dress. I’m happy that it fits me perfectly even when it comes to a tricky green color. I love green colors lately when it comes to my outfit because it go so well with my instagram theme. Prolly this is one of my favorite items this season. Basically, the outfit should always be suitable for everyday wear and comfortable.

My favorite way to wear this is with a cool white cap. White sneakers make the sporty and casual look perfect. Finish it off with my new favorite tote bag from MinimalyPH. Fyi, Canvas tote bag is a modern-day essential here in the Philippines right now.

Whether you prefer classic pieces or something more contemporary, a few strategic updates can take your style from ordinary to extraordinary. From eye-catching colors and one-of-a-kind materials to statement shapes and beyond, please keep reading for an up-close look at some of our favorite jewelry trends that are sure to make any ensemble, such as dresses and sport utility wear and find new fashion trends at lover-beauty, stand out.

With the right tools and expertise, our appraisers will give you a precise evaluation of your jewelry’s value. You can trust that you will get your money’s worth with us. Moreover, we see to it that every customer is satisfied with the service from beginning to end. If you need a professional opinion on the value of your jewelry, please don’t hesitate to consult with us.

Hottest Jewelry Trends
Statement Rings
The other name for statement rings is cocktail rings. A large central stone characterizes them, occasionally surrounded by additional motifs and typically set in silver or gold.

In the 1920s, statement rings, a symbol of feminism and defiance, became fashionable in the United States. This exquisite jewelry was worn by ladies who drank alcohol when it was illegal, enjoyed themselves, attended lavish galas and parties, and was not afraid to demonstrate their individuality.

While some people wear statement rings for fashion, others continue to wear them as symbols of something they hold dear. They are able to convey something profound and resonating about themselves. They enable you to express your creativity and individuality. It may reveal your passions, ideals, family history, or heritage to the world. Many statement rings have family crests to commemorate a cherished family heritage, while others are carved with important words or phrases or incorporate a noteworthy symbol or design.

Cuffed Up
 A silver or gold cuff is ideal for creating a modest statement with a single accessory. Cuff bracelets have proven to be the simplest method to enhance any outfit. Typically, the silhouette consists of a thick, arched curve, but the effect is substantial!

First, cuffs are typically adjustable so that you can wear them in a variety of ways. If you like a classic style, add one or two cuffs to your wrist, so they shine beneath your shirt sleeve or sweater. To make the style more fascinating, slip the cuff up your forearm, as seen on models at Missoni, or choose a cuff that wraps around your wrist, as seen on models at Tory Burch.

You could also give ear cuffs a try! It is the pinnacle of adaptability. Ear cuffs are available in various forms and styles and do not require piercings, providing you with complete freedom over how you use them. An effortless method to create a statement, large earrings do not cause discomfort to the earlobes as chandelier earrings do. Additionally, if you choose a simple design, it can be combined with studs, hoops, and drop earrings. This piece lets you display your jewelry personality without requiring piercing.

When you're satisfied with the chosen style, thread the ear cuff over the thinnest portion of your upper ear and glide it over your cartilage to secure it. If it seems a bit loose, give it a slight press to decrease the gap and ensure that the ear cuff stays in place.

Beads, Beads, and Beads!
Thinly beaded necklaces are the ideal accessory for layering professionals. This bohemian style is a casual way to decorate, whether you're stacking numerous strands of the same beads, mixing and matching, or letting a single strand speak for itself. Take a cue from Blumarine, the completely Y2K-themed company, and add a charm to a beaded strand, or be inspired by Coach's eccentric idea to put unexpected objects such as a sports whistle to a long strand. You do not need to wear a floral crown or a lengthy skirt to accessorize with beads.

This also means that the styles begin to diverge, which is a positive development! Bead necklaces come in various lengths and materials, but the size of the beads is also important. You can also get enormous beaded shapes in sterling silver, gold, or vermeil.

Chunky Jewelry

Last year, designer brands, including Gucci and Bottega Veneta, debuted the first heavy chain accessories on their runways. These hefty chains, worn as showpiece pieces over more casual attire, were the antithesis of the lightweight layered jewelry that has been popular in recent years.

The massive gold jewelry trend of 2020 is a simple way to elevate any ensemble. Whether ribbed or braided, you may find unique shapes and textures on everything from heavy chains to large arm candy. Shop our chosen collection of the season's most fashionable earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and anklets below. A daily dose of gold will bring a grin to your face.

Tooth Jewelry
The Y2K movement has just sparked another rebirth, and this time it's in the form of flashing tooth gems, as seen in Marc Jacobs and Iris Law. The trend consists of tiny rhinestones, charms, or crystals adhered to the enamel with an adhesive as non-invasive mouth decorations and a semi-permanent solution to give extra luster to your smile.

Tooth gems are little, although fashionable jewels that adhere to a tooth's surface (or numerous teeth, go wild!)

FKA Twigs, Iris Law, and Hailey Bieber have recently advocated for the return of the microtrend, which has been spotted on many Gen Z influencers, models, and Tiktokers. The beauty of tooth jewelry is that it may be as understated as you choose, with only a tiny stone in the corner of your incisor, and still make a statement. Or, for the daring, there are patterns, chains, and even logos, such as the Chanel charm worn by Adwoa Aboah.

Rihoas Wishlist: Wardrobe Refresh for 2023

Every year, I love to share my personal shopping wishlist ideas, I do this to help you generate gift ideas for others you're shopping for and to help you find some unique and affordable items for yourself as well.

And since the new season is getting closer and closer, it means it's time to think about my wardrobe refresh. Luckily, I have discovered Rihoas , it's a rising fashion brand dedicated to elegance with retro charm and unique style. Rihoas was born in Hong Kong and that's what I really like about this brand because Hong Kong has this reputation to be able to deliver quality clothing with a short lead-time. So, it's a win-win situation for everyone who's always so excited about an item that we've bought online.

I spent a good couple of hours in their online store browsing through the huge collection and their seasonal SALE!It wasn't the easiest decision to make because all the season trends and new arrival are fantastic and the deals are so good.

I'm a huge fan of green color, they really catch my eye immediately. so for today's post I would share my top 5 Rihoas clothing wishlist 2023 -- all in green color. Click on the link below to see more information about each item. Leave a comment with which item is your favorite (1,2,3,4,5). 

1.  Plaid Tweed Jacket -  I am obsessed with the tweed coords trend at the moment - recently I've just seen so many people wearing tweed coords and I need to get one. This one is such a lovely color and would go perfectly with my new stilltoe.

2. Collared Bodycon Mini Dress - What kind of wardrobe wishlist would it be if there wasn't any bodycon dress? I love the style and look of this plus this shade of green is my favorite. This would be great in any occasion and I feel like I would wear this so often this year. 

3. Slit Tube Skirt This vintage style slit skirt is actually amazing! The first time I saw it and saw the pattern it immediately went on my wishlist. It's so chic with a slit front, I could easily wear this with my favorite graphic tee and sneaks or ankle boots.

4. Button Up Blazer -  I absolutely love the green shade of this blazer. To be honest, I don't know if I could pull this off, but this blazer is so cool! I'm loving the color, so I think this piece would be really fun to style.

5.  Tie Shoulder Side Slit DressOkay, how adorable is this dress? I love it so much! From the white floral print, the shape and the style. This is more of a summery piece, as you'd probably be very chilly in it, I saw this whilst browsing and I couldn't not include it as it's so pretty!

Hello 2023

The New Year tiptoed in as silently as feather in the wind last week, barely daring to disturb out of the normal parameters of life. I've found myself incapable of making resolutions this year, not just because the world is still holding it's breath, but because recent years have taught me that every month, every day, every hour and every breath is a new beginning. I'll take advantage of them all. Wishing is not my thing anymore, because I'm a strong believer that you get what you work for and not what you wish for. 

Instead, I simply enjoying the magic of the season, take each day as it comes, free myself from the toxicity of social media, taking up unnecessary space in my life, push my creativity, be more kind, laugh as much as possible and love as hard as I can.

Getting Back Into the Groove


Hey, long time no see. It's been 14 months since I've blogged, and I am so disappointed in myself, I mean honestly you guys. I definitely didn’t expect my blogging hiatus to last this long, it’s just that lots of things had happened in the last 14 months. I've been practicing my cooking and videography skills. I started a YouTube channel and a small plant business. We've moved to our newly built house and all that stuff you probably don't care about. It all happened in the 14 months that I'm gone, and I am happy to be back.

I’m a massive procrastinator and it actually requires a level of concentration. Actually, I’ve written this post many times, as I’ve planned to comeback many times throughout the ber-months of 2021, however it wasn’t possible. But now I’m sure that I’m ready to get back into the swing of things, armed with a whole slew of new ideas and interesting topics to write about.

Oh well, I don’t want to make a really long post as I’m not sure if you guys even remember me, or if someone is even going to read this post ‘coz I knew that a couple things happen when you go on a blogging hiatus. First, the stats take a hit – the longer you are away from your blog, the lower they dip. Second, you begin to lose momentum – the longer you are away from your blog, the harder it is to return. Makes sense, right? Blogging isn’t as popular as it used to be but I do enjoy the process of it and the work that goes into it. It gives me so much creative freedom I’d never have on social platform owned by someone else. I don’t really own my account on Instagram, on Pinterest, on Facebook or on my other social media accounts, but I do own

And regardless of what life throws my way, or how many breaks I take, I always keep coming back to my first love -- blogging.
