I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Child’s Play: Subdued
Top: Comme ça Ism
Pants: Club Monaco
Studs: from England
That collared top is my new favorite, because I saw Laureen Uy wearing a top just like that. Mom bought it for me in a vintage shop. It still has a tag when she got it. When I searched about the brand Comme ca Ism, I found out that it’s a Japanese brand although they used a French statement meaning like this. Japanese derived the name from a clothing line in London called Comme Ca. Sources claim that Comme ca Ism is like the GAP in America. They offer affordable yet chic fashion items. Credits to Osaka Nines: Street Intelligence for that tidbit.
I figured I can wear the top with my Club Monaco trousers to pull off a corporate chic vibe, and then I splashed it off with my red bucket bag. I love how the color red made a surprise appearance in my subdued get up. And by the way, this shoot was done at school. There’s a place in UP Min that’s just filled with messy greens, and I love how it contrasted my formality. Special thanks to my fashion buddy Ella for taking my blog outfit photos lately. I can’t wait for tomorrow! Do read my feature about her. Just click Cosmopolite: B-E-R-N-A-D-E-T-T-E.
