The Reluctant Stylista

Any fashion girl worth her salt is always excited about September. After all, it’s fashion month! This is when the most beautiful and luxurious collections of fall (holiday collections for us in the tropics) are finally launched, and every fashion magazine unveil their most iconic muse as the September cover girl. I know I love playing guessing games as to which celebrity will end up on which cover (I thought Taylor Swift would be Vogue’s).

One of the magazines I regularly style for is Metro Weddings, and this issue is sold along with Metro Magazine–two for the price of one! Nikki Gil is all aglow in a sweet pink dress on the cover of Metro Weddings while the lovely Liz Soberano is chic as hell as Metro’s chosen muse. And as it’s September, so you can bet both issues are chock full of the latest fashions and the most breathtaking pieces that will make your heart skip a beat.

You know the only way to make flipping through these fashion magazines even better? A giveaway.
