Young Republic

Young is a community where passionate fashion makers and fashion lovers come together to discover, shop and share unique designs from all over the world. 

I came to know this site through an email they sent me. Their mission is simple, to give independent designers and emerging labels a voice and a platform to grow their brands, and to offer their trendsetting styles to the fashion-hungry followers.

Ok, I don't get paid for blogging about this site but I find their site interesting and unique. It gives the people a chance to showcase their own designs and sell them all over the world. I browsed through their site and pick out items that I like. Here are some of them.

Peplums are here to stay. They've been a trend since 2012 but not a lot of people wear them, not until the end of the year. Well, that's based on what I've seen in the little city I live in. 
Cullotes are back! Pair it wit a simple tank top or corset and you're good to go.
Printed leggings. I love this mosaic print in particular. Very artsy. 
Peplums, Assymetrical and Gathered skirts.
The aztec print on this shorts caught my eye.
Metallic Skirt. Metallics are gonna be hot pancakes this year.
Midribs paired with high-waisted skirts
  Collars, collars, collars

Best of 2012

2012 is one of those years that I won't forget, ever. There were so many memorable events that happened this year in my life. I started this year with so many uncertainties. Not knowing what to do with my life. I wasted my 2011 and I don't want another year to be gone to waste. I graduated last April which is one of the highlights of my year and the following month, my beloved grandpa passed away. I had a difficult time accepting this but life must go on. 2012 was one hell of  a roller coaster ride for me.

Celebrated my birthday with a blast with my friends. Tagaytay trip. Reviewed for the board exams. Watched for the very first time Iloilo Designer's Week. Got an ombre and dip-dyed my hair blue. --- Were some of the highlights of my year.

The Lord has blessed me so much this year. I'm so grateful that He has remain faithful to me all these years. I stumble and fall but the Lord has been there to pick me up and tell me, "Child get up, I will be by your side."

I took the PNLE few weeks ago that I've been looking forward to. I entrusted everything to God because He knows what's best for me. I learned so much this year and one of those is to patiently wait. God has answered my prayer that I've been praying for years already.

Gained so many friends but lost some. I am no near perfect but with God's grace I become a better person. Here's to a wonderful year ahead. Cheers!

Happy 2013!
