I have love-hate relationship with fashion. Sometimes, I love to dress-up for the occassion, most of the time, I go for the usual go-to outfit. Trends and styles go and come back; but if there is one thing that never change over the years, it is how I care for my clothes.
Let me share you a fashion story and my FashionCare.
When I started working though, my first job required us to wear a uniform. After 6 months, I got promoted and finally got to wear a “black shirt”. My advice to fresh grads, it is good to work in a company that requires a uniform. It would save you a lot 🙂
A rare photo of me with my co-managers. 😀
When manning a coffee shop became a little tiresome for me, I shifted to corporate work. Working for a global company required us to come in Smart Casual attire. I didn’t mind. My colleagues and I actually love the idea of coming to work dressed up.
Still being playful with my ensembles even for corporate attire 😝
We noticed that when we were in Smart Casual attire, we were more professional in dealing with others, we were more conscious of our posture and decorum, we presented in meetings well, etc. As we work and collaborate with people working in different time zones and job titles, we were always prepared to talk and present – be it via conference call or meeting. While Dress Down Fridays made us felt lazier in our chairs in front of Thinkpads. The kind of dress that you wear truly affects how you work 😉

Rare time I wore white
Nowadays, I want to be more minimalist when it comes to dressing up. I love investing on pieces of clothes that I can wear over and over again (my clothes are x years old!).
As styles and trends change, there is one thing that never change in the way I take care of my clothes – I always and still hand wash my clothes – even the denims – and undies! The only clothes that we machine-wash are the pambahays and pajamas. I do separate the whites to colored. Even doing the laundry by batch (denims only, undies only, etc). I spend time washing them, drying them and hanging them – to keeping them back in my full closet.
I got to be part of a solution and people’s lives. Read my interview here.
I felt more confident being with these good-looking men.
These are just some of my many adventures and opportunities that I got to take and embraced because I am confident with my clothes. Power Dressing is all about being comfortable (being able to walk, sit and do things without showing too much skin), and making sure that your clothes fit you well, don’t have stains, loose threads, etc, and are well-pressed.
But due to schedules getting busier and busier, I no longer have the time to do the laundry and care for my clothes (my mom always saves me).
Here comes Electrolux to save the day again. I am crossing my fingers and toes to own one!
The new Electrolux Washing Machine has Electrolux’s UltraMix Technology that mixes water and detergent to ensure deep clean and helps retain clothes’ softness, shape and color.
The Electrolux Vapour Refresh program, will give wrinkle-free clothes. This means, I can save energy and time with pressing my clothes especially during packing and travel. I mostly buy clothes that don’t need pressing but with this new technology, maybe I can consider.
I can fully manage my time with Electrolux Load Sensor™ as it automatically senses load weight, determines optimal washing time, water and detergent while guaranteeing maximum energy efficiency. I can multi-task and be more productive.
We mostly do our laundry (machine wash for pambahay clothes) at the roof-top, and we want to ensure that operation is silent and smooth. The best thing is that Electrolux Fashion Care has Electrolux EcoInverter reduces energy consumption by 75%*.
For those who have a baby and has senstive skin, Electrolux Vapour Care educes allergens by up to 99.9% even at 40°C.

I love technology and appliances that help resolve simple life stresses. I can’t wait to know where my clothes would next take me. I am pretty sure I can go farther than my Instagram feed.
