Random Daily Looks

12:50 PM Nana Jover 13 Comments

As much as I wanted to daily blog my everyday look i just couldn't find enough time to do it. Juggling my time between work and my online shop can really be strenuous and that sometimes all my energy are sapped that I would simply slug on my bed at night.

so here are my daily looks from last week and this week which  i snapped on my mobile on my way to work.

As I've mention before I am more of a dress person, majority of my clothes consists of dresses.
My style would often be pass as a girly-girly style. I really love laces, florals, tulles, pearls and polka dots.

What do you think? =)

Day 1: Greek Inspired Dress... the breeze is just perfect for the dress.

Dinagyang Festival 2013

1:50 PM Nana Jover 6 Comments

Dinagyang Festival is one of many renowned festival celebrated in the Philippines. It is celebrated every 4th Sunday of January.  My kins and I had a great time celebrating it.

So what’s Dinagyang Festival all about?  Dinagyang Festival is actually a religious thanksgiving festivity in honor of Senyor Sto. Nino – Child Jesus. During the fête the streets of Iloilo (where I lived.. Lucky me ) is filled with local residents and tourists. In the morning there is a Dinagyang Dance Showdown (which is the main highlight of Dinagyang Festival) wherein different tribes with warriors in colorful and feisty costumes dance in impressive dance routine. And in the afternoon the streets are jam packed with people eating on food fest or simply partying on the streets. The party usually last until 12 midnight or even until dawn.

Here's a You Tube video of one of the tribes performing their dance Dinagang Festival Video

Sister Style: Mullet Dress

4:37 PM Nana Jover 9 Comments

Today I'am featuring my little sister Curtny wearing a mullet dress for our online shop Vanita Sorella. I think having a sister is nice especially if they are also into fashion, sharing the same interests and raiding each others closet can really be fun though sometimes... well.... frustrating lol.  

Sheer Mullet dress are very elegant and classic. Always gives a feminine touch

Be Fashionably You

4:19 PM Nana Jover 7 Comments


In today’s society to become fashionably YOU can be tough, distinguishing your very own style over different flairs can be overwhelming.
And sometimes there is a need for you to be "IN" with the latest fashion in order to be considered as fashionable.

But if there is one thing I have learned from being a blogger is that being fashionable doesn't really mean being "In" and having to "Splurge" with the latest craze, but rather for me being fashionable is being able to express your "OWN SELF" in  a way that is Uniquely "YOU

Chilly Days

8:25 PM Nana Jover 19 Comments

In the Philippines January is the month of the year that is colder than December and one thing I love about it is that I get to wear my sweater, cardigans, blazers etc and I get to do some layering.

Black is my favorite color when it gets colder I dunno it’s just that I feel warmer wearing that color and besides nothing could go wrong with black!

So today I sported on a black bodycon ruched dress over a black leggings and a plaid blazer. I really feel warm wearing this outfit since I am having a slight fever too. But Monday is a busy day on work so I need to get myself working. Good thing green teas can be a soothing tonic.

Get The Most Out of Life

2:03 PM Nana Jover 16 Comments



Have you ever ponder how you would spent you entire year? If you would do something productive? I always had these thoughts. I have this nostalgic fear that I might just waste my life and eventually when I grow old I would have nothing worthwhile to share.

So how can one possibly get the most out of life?  I did some random list on things that I thought could help me transform my life I and make the most of it


Think Life as an adventure – according to William Feather “One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure”. Meaning get excited on every waking morning, write everything that gets you excited and happy.


Create your Project Life Scrap Book – I am working on this one at the moment and it’s really worth it. Capturing your everyday moment and immortalizing them through photos and scrap book could help you track how you’d live your life. For more info about what is “Project Life” is check it out HERE <3… It’s really Fun..



Embrace each day – Allow everything and anything that comes your way. Everything happens for a reason and no man should put asunder whatever God has bound together. Embrace each day like it’s your last day.

Does Age Exist in Fashion?

12:35 PM Nana Jover 5 Comments

Does age really matter in fashion? Does one really need to wear something appropriate for his/her age? This thought really bugs me for quite some time. Being a great lover of fashion getting older every year can really be distressing. In Some way, I have these thoughts that sooner or later I would eventually let go of tutu dresses, frilly bobby socks and baby doll dresses. But then again I resolutely deem that age does not really exist in fashion as long as you look good, feel good and confident with what you are wearing then go for it. Life is much sweeter if you are happy with what you are wearing.




 A.M -  Today I decided to don on something with green since green is the color of the year in 2013 fashion.

A Fresh New Start

4:20 PM Nana Jover 8 Comments


My first outfit post for the year 2013 I wanted something fresh that would go along the New Year so I came up with this floral sheer dress. I know my day would be busy since it’s also the first day of work after a few days of vacation.  I haven’t bought my 2013 planner yet (such a sady) so all stuffs are cluttered and squeezed inside my mind. Hooo finding the perfect planner for me is really hard and struggling between work and my online store is even tougher.  So a floral touch can enlighten a busy mood.
