Between bags and shoes, Mika de la Cruz prefers the latter--particularly sneakers, especially Converse Chuck Taylors.
Describing herself as “unexpected,” the Oh My G! mainstay said that she is more boyish in person, which explains her love for sneakers. She notes that she has a diverse collection of Converse pairs, ranging from the classic black and white Chuck Taylors, to all-leather variants, and even boots with a hidden wedge inside.
For formal events, Mika loves wearing black pumps.
As for her “basic, edgy, and simple” outfit, she loves anything black, from shirts to boots. Besides black, she likes simple colors like maroon and white as well.
Also, Mika would choose to be smart over being beautiful as she does not like to apply makeup as much as possible. “Ayoko yun super kapal yun makeup; I’d rather be smart than have [just] a pretty face,” she adds.
Her message to young girls who look up to her? “Be yourself, at ‘wag niyo ida-down yun sarili niyo,” she says.
“Just be confident at mag-ayos kayo kahit papaano,” Mika adds.
