Can You Take Me Higher?

I was browsing through all the pretty pictures on Tumblr [follow my picture blog:] and once again my obsession for high waist shorts peaked. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect high waist shorts and sadly I haven’t found one. So here I am drooling over all the uber cool  high waist shorts these girls are sporting on Tumblr. I’m dying with envy!!!

Summer is here and the days are just gonna get hotter and hotter. High waist shorts would be perfect for this weather! Pair it with a cropped top [don’t be shy!] and voila! The perfect summer outfit.

Some of you might be threatened to wear this style of shorts but don’t you fret! High waist shorts don’t just match the long and skinny body type [I’m not one of them, I have a bubble bootie hahaha]! It also fits the average girl body type. So with some research [and a lot of pretty pictures] I was able to score some tips on how to rock high waist shorts.

If you’re torso is short or you have big boobies, go for a cut over your hip bones and not the cut that goes all the way up to the tiniest part of your waist.

Photo cred:

Want to have the illusion of long legs? Go short! My design and construction prof said that if you want to go long go short. The shorter the cut is the longer the illusion. Am I being redundant? Can’t stress it enough! 🙂 Some who are really daring show some bottom butt cleavage. I don’t think I could ever be that daring.

Now let’s talk about the right top. Tuck in your tops ladies! This is the best way to rock these shorts. Others opt for cropped tops or  button down dress shirts [just like Audrey Hepburn!]. Button down dress shirts with high waist tops look sooo…class and I love it!

Photo cred:

Always make sure that the high waist shorts you get fit perfectly. If the fabric bunches up in some places, the shorts will look unflattering.

My first ever post and more importantly, my first ever blog! 🙂

So, I guess introductions first? My name is Alexandra Pierson. I live in Manila where I am currently a DJ (the club kind, not the radio kind), clothing and accessory designer, style addict and a really big dreamer. I’ve always wanted to start a blog but never really pushed myself to do so. And another big factor for my blog creation delay is because I wasn’t able to replace my stolen Mac book. Not until last week! Yes!! I got a new laptop. Yay! 🙂 So, what else? Well, I have a very eclectic style. I don’t only stick to one. My style depends on my mood. Sometimes I feel bad ass and want to go with graphic tees, acid washed jeans and a leather (faux, mind you) jacket. On other days I feel all girly and I take the summer dress and ballet flats road. So you won’t expect to see me with one style only. I used to design jewelry five years ago and actually consigned it with a big company (cannot say which one) but then I got burnt out and kind of took a break from that. However, I’m missing the whole jewelry design process and I’m getting back in to it. I bought new materials and I’m gonna start next week!! 🙂

Today was the day I’ve been looking forward to for about two weeks already. The first day for my Design and Constructing Clothes class. And it was awesome!! 🙂 Our teacher, Aan Pineda is sooo amazing. I couldn’t believe how detailed and fast his lessons were. I mean we tackled a lot of topics in just four hours! But I must admit towards the last thirty minutes of class I was kind of zoning out. Was still so tired from my gig the night before. I’m so psyched with our class project. We each have to design and construct a shift dress! I cannot tell you enough how excited I am. We started on our mood boards (will post a picture probably tomorrow!) and I went for a  gold and copper and maroon and burgundy color scheme. I’m really thinking I’ll stick to this color scheme cause it seems so regal and classy.

A shift dress has a loose fit at the waist and a tight fit at the hips.
