Between bags and shoes, Mika de la Cruz prefers the latter over the former. Specifically, she emphasized her love for sneakers, especially Converse Chuck Taylors, as she said during her first-ever Kapamilya Chat on Thursday, March 12.
Describing herself as “unexpected”, the 16-year-old “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 sneakers, ranging from the classic black and white Chuck Taylors, to all-leather variants, end even boots with a hidden wedge inside.
On formal events, Mika loves wearing black pumps.
As for her “basic, edgy, and simple” outfit, she loves anything black, from shirts to boots. Aside from black, she likes simple colors as well like maroon and white.
Also, Mika would choose to be smart over 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 said.
“Just be confident at mag-ayos kayo kahit papaano,” Mika adds.
