The Reluctant Stylista is a fashion and lifestyle blog written by Alex Lapa--the tomboy who suddenly discovered the joys and perks of dressing up. Original illustrations by Paolo Lazatin.
For inquiries, comments, invites and other messages, shoot me an e-mail. You can also ask me some fashion/styling questions--heck, in my line of work, I rarely get to dress up the same body type as my own! If your question is something that I think will benefit our readers, I will feature it in our Ask Stylista section! Click on the button below to send your questions!

OLA! I know, I know, I’m still alive after all! That was an unexpected 3-month blogging hiatus, after being on a roll at the start of the year, too.
Fortunately, I didn’t exactly make it one of my resolutions to blog more often. But I do think that from now on, I should be churning out a post once a week. Blog backlog has been unbelievable, but okay–I’ll promise here and now that July will have a lot more updates. I do have a lot of things to share, even fun work-related ones, because I was really busy with styling gigs this summer.
Speaking of which, I’ll be in SM San Lazaro this Sunday, July 21, 2013 at 4pm for a styling session. It’s open to everyone! I’ll be giving out tips on how to wear your jeans and what best suits the different body types–male and female. Let me know if you have questions about your personal styling–those are always quite fun to answer. A pair of jeans is the most versatile piece in your wardrobe, but I think most people take it for granted. Let’s talk about finding the most flattering pair for you and how to work it. In fact, if you want me to be specific about something, then ask away here and I’ll do a demo on Sunday.
And this styling session is only a small part of the grander picture that is the Jeans Festival at SM. Here is the rest of the events you should be looking forward to:
- July 20 - Jeans Ambassador Jeffrey Rogador (hair and make up sponsor : Azta Urban Salon)
- July 21 - Fashion Stylist and Blogger Alexandra Lapa with Save Me Hollywood band for entertainment (hair and make up sponsor : Ystilo) This will be my first time in this mall!
- July 27 - Love Jeans Fashion Show | Participating Brands: The SM Store, Folded & Hung, Mossimo, Dickies (hair and make up sponsor : Tony and Jackey)
Cherry on top is that the All Jeans sale will last until July 31, 2013 at the Activity Center. You can also SWAP & SHOP: Swap your old jeans and get a new pair at a discounted price! From July 12-31.
Get a chance to WIN 2,000 worth of SM GIFT CERTIFICATES. Just take your photo at the #EVERYTHING4DJEANSLOVER centerpiece wearing your #doubledenim outfit and tag SM on the photo with hash tag #EVERYTHING4DJEANSLOVER @smcitysanlazaro promo is until July 31.
