I.B.O.T.M. Laureen Uy

Inspirational Blogger of the Moment

Why her?

Laureen Uy is a designer-fashion-blogger-turned-actress. Laureen's fresh, bright, and ever-changing style has kept me coming back to her blog. I love the way she is so confident and experimental with her outfit choices. She is probably one of the main influencers who made me want to start wearing jewelry and became aware of how it can alter the look of an outfit. Laureen taught me that every part, every detail that goes into an outfit makes or breaks it and can give it a different look depending on what you change. Whether you go for a natural look, smokey eye, pop of color, studded jewelry, sneakers, or heels, an outfit can always be changed up or down. When she shares her travel expeditions as well as her moments in show business, it creates a deeper bond between her and her readers. She allows us to delve into her life, which shows us that she is more than what meets the eye.
