i-ADORE: Lexi Gancayco

Long Legged. Trendy. Unpredictable.

Three words I can attach to LEXI GANCAYCO.

If you came across on her chictopia page, you will notice that her style varies. As she says, her style is temporary and no one can tell what she's going to wear tomorrow. Her modelesque body built can carry a lot of style and any piece of clothing works on her. Her love for fashion and vintage pieces comes natural to her since she owns a clothing line -- SECOND SHOP.

Here are some outfit shots of her.

1.) Who is Lexi Gancayco?
- "I'm Lexi Gancayco, a 19-year old student from the University of the Philippines Diliman campus, about to finish my 2nd year in BS Economics. Aside from being a student, I'm the "creative director" and co-owner of The Second Shop with my partner, Jason. I enjoy cheap thrills, a lot of DIY's and watching Grey's Anatomy. More than being into fashion, i'm into observing and appreciating the different color combination, art, design shapes around, and fashion has a lot of these in them."

2.) How would you describe your style?
- "Temporary. There's no telling what I'll wear tomorrow, or today."

3.) Where do you usually shop and get your clothes?
- "As co-owner of the Second shop, its no surprise that I like shopping in thirft stores! But i also like department stores and little boutique areas like 50th Avenue. Of course, theres Forever21 too!"

4.) Favorite trend of all time?
- "High waist shorts, maxi skirts, oversized tank tops."

5.) What is your favorite piece of clothing you have in your closet which you won't trade for anything else?
- "My black corset - because it goes with almost anything! I can wear it at night or in the day. It works well with all black, and outrageously printed bottoms and blazers! Its such a staple and must have piece."

6.) Who is your fashion icon? Where do you get your fashion inspirations?
- "I don't have any main fashion perce, but many Fashion bloggers like Rumi Neely (Fashiontoast) Marcella (Fashiondistraction) Hallie (Halliedaily.com) are just some of the really inspiring fashion bloggers I follow. There are also local fashion icons of course who are just as inspiring like, Kookie Buhain, Camille Co, Lissa Kahayon, Liz Uy, Daryl Chang and many more! Of course, there are also local magazines, friends, and things around me that continue to inspire me."

7.) What is your fashion philosophy?
- "If you feel good in it, wear it, work it and own it. Its not as easy as it sounds, because there are many people in the Philippines who are outraged by people who wear platform, sky high heels to the mall or in the day, but you should learn to ignore people like them continue to wear what makes you feel good."

8.) Advice and messages to all fashionistas?
- "Learn to find your own uniqueness and individuality, and don't be afraid to let it out. When you're inspired by different people, magazines, and blogs, don't copy what you see, just incorporate ideas into your own style. And like I said in the last question, If you feel good in it, wear it, work it and own it."

Be inspired and spread the fashion word!


Stripes never go wrong.

 These jeggings are actually my favorite, they're the most comfy I've ever own. Before, I usually wear pants but now you can barely see me wearing jeans. Dresses, skirts, shorts, jeggings are the type of clothing you'll see me wearing.

For me, these lines are the safest and easiest prints to deal with.

Wanted to go all comfy because it's hot outside. grabbed my favorite jeggings, put on a tank top, add a cardi. and wore heels. Voila!

Be inspired and spread the fashion word!

Tangerine is one of the colors this summer. 
Borrowed my brother's socks to cover up some skin and make the look less revealing.

I'm colorful the other day, now I'm wearing neutrals.

The Triangle of LIFE

I got this from an email sent to me. I am reposting this because I think this will be helpful to all of the people around the globe especially now that earthquakes are coming unexpectedly.

It's better to be safe and ready than sorry.

So here are some of the guidelines for earthquake survival. The best that you can do when that occurrence will happen is to protect yourself.

Observe the following pictures to see the essence of the TRIANGLE OF LIFE.

Got the pictures from google images. If the photos are yours, please do tell me. I'm more glad to credit you. :)

 Proper way of lying down.

Don't forget to pray as well. God is more powerful than all of those calamities.

Spread the word and BE SAFE!

CHEERS to 3 Years!

Today is a very special day for me.
No, it's not my birthday.


3rd year of LOVE and HAPPINESS.
Nothing has changed, only our love gets stronger each day.

He is not only my boyfriend. 
But also my bestfriend who stabs me in front when I did something bitchy.
My Dad who scolds me whenever my outfit is too revealing.
My brother who protects me from the bad guys out there.
My sister who I can gossip with.
My cheerleader when I'm in doubt of myself.
My human alarm clock and planner who reminds me of my TO DO list since I'm forgetful.
No matter what, I know I have someone to run to if everyone else turned their back on me.

Our happiness is limitless yet simple. Having a bag of Piatos roadhouse barbeque makes our day even a pack of gummy candies or chocolates will do.

No, our relationship isn't as perfect as the classic fairytales. We had arguments and misunderstandings. We are alike but different at the same time. He want to watch basketball but I want the channel to be in Gossip Girl. He checks his favorite basketball site the first thing he opens google chrome while I quickly open my saved bookmarks which includes lookbook, chictopia, blogger, twitter, online shops, etc. Oftentimes, we have different perspectives about things but we also share common interests and thoughts about life. 

We dream together, fight for each other and face the hardships in life together.


Well enough of the sentiments!
Here's how we celebrated our 3rd year! :)

Went to my alma mater to get my graduation photos then ate lunch at Papa John's.

Papa John's is located at the newly renovated University Mall (Vito Cruz, Taft Avenue, Manila).
We just kept the meal light because we don't want to make our tummies full since we're having a buffet lunch for dinner.

Below is their Chicken Grilled Pizza. It's yummy but haven't tasted any chicken though.

Pasta Bolognaise, which is actually better than their carbonaras.

I've tasted their carbonara before and I didn't like it. I don't know if it is really their style to make foods that are not that saucy. So I initially told my friends not to order carbonara and choose the red sauces instead.

Chicken Wings which are soooo yummy! I like it but it's so small. :( I politely asked one of their crews to have it replaced with bigger ones. In fairness to her, she is so kind to accommodate me but after asking someone inside the kitchen she told me the sizes are all the same. :(

We went to greenbelt afterwards since it's the nearest mall to Makati Shangrila.
Got bored in the car coz it's traffic. My frustrations of becoming a photographer came out. HAHA.

It's scorching hot that day. It made us hungry and thirsty so we decided to grab some cold coffee frap and honey glazed doughnut from Starbucks to satisfy our thirsty throat and tummy.
 319. Our anniversary date :)

My favorite pair of shoes as of the moment :)

We watched RED RIDING HOOD afterwards. It's been a long time since the last time we watched a movie.
For the movie, it's a thumbs up for me. ;) lotsa twists, go watch it!

This dinner ruined my months of healthy. I felt like, those days I haven't eaten rice were wasted. HAHA!

Sorry for the poor quality. I'm in a rush when I took this because people were looking at me. AND the beau keeps on telling me "Tama na picture! Mamaya na yan..". 
In english "Stop taking photos, do it later after we eat."

The first station you'll see upon entering the resto is their Seafood and Japanese Station.

Japanese Section.

Seafood Station. 
Lots of BIG Shrimps and Tahong.

Salad Station which we did not try because we're not a fan of veggies and salads

Bread Station.

BBQ Station.

Different kinds of food-on-sticks were laid here. You'll choose, then they grill and serve it to your table so 
you won't have to stand there and wait..

Italian Station.
We ordered a yummy carbonara in penne and fetuccini noodles.

Their big turkey. (I'm not sure if it's turkey though, haha)

Chinese Station.
We just tasted their siomai and dumpling. Well, the usual.

Chicken and Lechon Station.

Singapore or Thai food Station. (I'm not really sure if it's Singapore or Thai)

Taco/Nachos/Shawarma Station.

Wine Station.

The most awaited of everyone, DESSERT STATION!!

I just realized I haven't tasted all of these. :(
These are yummy! :) with a grape in each of the burgers :)

Sugar free brownies. 
Not a fan of sugar free stuff because I'm a sweet tooth so my verdict is I don't like it.

I don't know what are these called but I have tasted the one in the top and it's yummy. ;)


Choco Fountain.


Halo-Halo Station.

Our ice cream with sprinkled stuff.

This won my tummy's vote! It is supper tasty and yummy.

Waiting for our pasta :)
