I like to tell myself that the reason why I love Disney so much is because I was deprived when I was younger. I didn’t grow up going to the happiest place on Earth. I grew up in the Philippines reading story books, watching Disney movies and dreaming what it’s like to be in Disneyland. My dream finally came true when I was 16 and now that I’m a young professional in my mid 20s, of course I had to be an Annual Passholder. My obsession with mermaids on the other hand, I don’t really have a justification why I love them so much or I never outgrew them. The Little Mermaid is obviously my favorite Disney Princess. Aside from her forever hair goals and amazing voice, I love her creativity, tenacity and strong willed personality. She doesn’t take “no” for an answer. She doesn’t just think about things but she makes things happen against all odds. Because of this, she became one of favorite cartoon characters growing up. I could relate with her in so many ways. Just like her, I don’t like being put in a box or going with the flow, being told what to do or cannot do, I like to be free, to be creative and to go in lots of adventures. This is just the beginning of my mermaid wardrobe. I will be designing and posting more mermaid inspired outfits, so stay tune! What do you think about mermaid fashion? Do you have a favorite Disney Princess and why?

XOXO,

Joy

One of my favorite places in the world is the beach. It’s just so peaceful and relaxing. I grew up living 15 mins from the beach in Oxnard and when I was younger, I didn’t take advantage of living so close to it. But now that craziness and business of adulthood has finally arrived, I could use a simple getaway here and there. For this look, I made a colorful long maxi see through dress that can easily be worn on top of a bathing suit – perfect for summer weather. I’ll probably wear this dress multiple times for the next few months.  Anyone else super excited that summer is finally here?
