Get style and fashion tips from Dominique Tiu on what to wear for a sexy night out, and hear from her what is the one thing she can’t leave home without.
SimplySxy: Hi Dominique, thank you very much for your time taken to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Can you share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Dominique: I’m Dominique Tiu, I’m currently an Account Manager in one of THE best Advertising firms in the Philippines and I sometimes moonlight as a Fashion Blogger. My background, for all intents and purposes, enables me to be quite the creative free spirit. I also like to publish un-filtered word vomit on my fashion blog: www.konichiwear.com accompanied by photos I deem to be pretty so yes, please visit, browse at your own will, and forgive me for the lack of brevity.
SimplySxy: What has been your biggest indulgence so far?
Dominique: Everything in my closet, to say the least: Bags, Watches, & Jewelries. I just got myself a Hermes Constance earlier this year and a set of Burmese sapphires. I’m a sucker for “wearable art.” Though I’ve moved on from investing on apparel, shoes, and bags to jewelries and watches as of late. I’m eyeing a fancy Ladies watch from Audemars in rose gold and still continuously saving up for it.
SimplySxy: The one item you can’t leave home without is?
Dominique: My personality. I tried to think long and hard as to what it is that I can’t leave home with out—I thought of bags, shoes, clothes, perfumes, lipsticks… but in the end, I realized, it’s not all the pretty things that make me, “ME” but rather, who I am and my rapport with people.
SimplySxy: What style tips can you give to someone who is looking to dress up for a sexy night out?
Dominique: Wear sensible shoes! I’d like to think everyone should be allowed to wear whatever it is that their heart desires but personally, I prefer to wear darker colors and skin-baring pieces. Regardless, what’s important above all is opting to wear a reliable pair of shoes—I’m not saying you have to wear something flat and ugly, just choose one that won’t kill the circulation off your big toes. If there’s one thing that kills my mood easily regardless of situation, it’s ill-fitting shoes. What more when you’re out and about, shimmying?
SimplySxy: Dream holiday destination?
Dominique: Seychelles or Maldives. I love the beach though I’m not exactly beach ready. I know it’s strange, loving fashion, but not being that much attracted to cosmopolitan cities but I like the tranquility and safe haven an exclusive beach provides.
SimplySxy: How will you describe yourself in 3 words?
Dominique: Hilarious, Quirky, and Self-deprecating.
SimplySxy: What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
Dominique: Shifting careers at 25 and taking an 80% pay-cut. It’s been a year and though I’m a bit ambivalent about it, I like where I’m at now. At least I get to wear sneakers and Birkenstocks to work and everyone will just chalk it up as me being “trendy.”
SimplySxy: Thank you again for being on SimplySxy, Dominique. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Dominique: Sexy to me is being self-possessed. Sexy people don’t need people to tell them that they’re “sexy.” They don’t need any validation. They are who they are, just because.
