Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!

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: Color Blocking for Plenary


What I wore
Mini-Floral-Dress-Worn-As-Top: FOVL (Japanese brand)
Polo-Blouse-Worn-As-Blazer: Rosella (Japanese brand)
Skirt: Vintage
Dark Brown Boots: Janeo
Sleek Belt: SM Accessories
Earrings: Gift from Mom
Necklace: from England
Bangle: from England

Two days ago was our Thesis Plenary (final defense), and I’m just so glad and proud to say… I made it at last! We still have a few things to add for our final draft though, but what I’m sure of is that my sacrifice for this major subject is about to end soon. I’m ultimately stoked to don our school’s famous sablay for our much-awaited graduation come 18th of April. Now that it’s nearing the finish line (and it's only a month to go), it’s becoming even more nerve-wrecking! The anticipation is killing me!

Now on the glam side of this post, presentations at school has always been the BA Communication Arts students venue for dolling up. A fashion enthusiast like me would miss chances like this under no circumstance. Of course it’s uncommon for a shutterbug like me, to play dress up without photography. What good are lovely clothes when you don’t get to capture them? That’s just what I personally think. Maybe that might wrinkle your brows, but for me it’s something that I totally dig.

I always plan my outfits days ahead, and with that I mean I have a sort of “dress rehearsal” so that I won’t go panicking in front of my closet on the day itself. I chose to throw in some vivid hues for this get-up to uplift my mood, because I’ve been in some neutral colors like white, black, brown/beige lately. I also decided to wear my mini floral dress as a top, and my blue button-down top as a blazer. I tucked the dress in the skirt, put the blouse over it and cinched everything with the sleek belt.

I love that my printed top and bangle made it pop in my plain color-blocked ensemble. It’s like having two fashion fad in one – print popping and color blocking. How ‘bout that? I also love that the combination of this vibrant blue and yellow shades made a cheerful effect in my mood for this day. Blue is associated to the calm waters and yellow to the bright sunshine, so putting them together definitely helped me be in good spirits that lasted for the entire day, and hopefully for the whole week as well.

How could I not be in a pleasant disposition when I wore clothes that look so happy, and I got one of the best news in my college life? Color therapy and good news indeed have the power to make us feel so great about ourselves! Thank you so much dear God for the blessing! Now I’m off to write the abstract, acknowledgement  and biographical sketch to cap off my final thesis draft. I’m almost done! And oh please hype this look in Lookbook. ‘Til next time and have a good day, lovely dolls!
