Loud Blossoms

image

Hello there, here’s a quick back log to the time my hair still had life, i really need to do something with my ugly hair now. I love this floral dress, it’s loud but it’s not over the top. Paired it with my Wine red boots for a simple yet put together look.

Greenhills Dress, Linea Italia Boots, Gifted Necklace (thanks Andrea!)

I’m back from a long hiatus! I can’t promise I won’t be gone again though. Andrea and I ventured into coordinating weddings and debuts, quite a different kind of event organizing but it was still fun non-the-less; we call our company ACE Coordinates. I’ve been busy with event organizing but especially school; my last event this year just took place and I can now focus more on thesis and other school work. We’re not accepting clients again ‘til next year so we can work on passing this course. haha!

Sunday mornings with @deleoncharmaine.. Sorry @youjuzgotwanged you just got replaced.. :) date me after midterms! (at Philippine Christian Gospel School - 宿務建基中學)

A Splash of Color

Festivities call for festive clothes! This holiday season, I have been wearing colorful clothes just because! This is what I wore to church last Sunday, it was also our Christmas Cantata, there were song and dance numbers, and some of my friends danced this really upbeat Christmas song. I was taking a video of them being the stage friend that I am, and I was a little shy to go to the front wearing the bright pants that I have on, haha! I was like a rainbow exploded on me :P But hey, Fashion is fashion, don’t judge:)

South Shores Wedges

I’m not a really big fan of wedges, I just think stilettos look sexier. But when I had on these babies, I was like wow! how did I miss these?! They still look sexy and adds height, plus they’re super comfortable!! it just goes to show that you have to give it a chance, try things before you judge them, you might end up loving them instead (am I still talking about shoes? haha :D).

In Fashion, do not be afraid to try things because you don’t think it would suit you, you’ll never know if you can pull it off or not until you try them! Go ahead, buy that top you’ve been eyeing, or those pair of shorts that your fave blogger is wearing, you might rock ‘em better!:)

Styling Job X Anne's Workshop

So, I’m venturing to a new world—Styling! I mean, I’ve already fell in love with clothes and dressing up but I’ve never been more than an assistant stylist professionally. So I am really thankful to Anne Uy for trusting me on this. I styled for one of her one-on-one workshops yesterday. What transpires in these workshop is…she organizes a photo shoot for the student, then teaches him the basics of shooting/lighting and then later a post-processing session using lightroom/photoshop. Her students so far gave great feedbacks of her teaching, her talent and her skills! You can contact her through contact@anneuy.com. She is also available for engagement/prenup shoots, couple shoots, magazine editorials, fashion, model, makeup portfolios, lookbooks, maternity shoots, and artistic collaborations.

For this particular workshop, the student photographer wanted to shoot fashion, so I pulled out clothes for South Shores. Here are some outtakes from yesterday’s shoot:

Laid out the clothes I came up with for the shoot.

Photographer/Teacher/Make-up Artist! Talented indeed~

Florals and Pleats

image

I love the contrast between the edginess in my expression and the sweet colors of my outfit! All the colors that might clash, didn’t—it actually ended up well…put  together. I just love adding a surprise to my outfit through my shoe color! (just like in Day 2)

image

Top, Floral Pants, Necklace, Ring, Bracelets, Belt and Shoes (All South Shores)

I wore this to the office and to a dinner at Choi City and night out with my mom and her friends. We listened to a live band in Slabadus in Hernan Cortes and the most memorable song was Oppa Gangnam Style! I didn’t think it could be done live—plus, everybody started dancing! haha*

What do you think of my outfit?:)

Pointillism

image

My top reminds me of a class I had on my first year of Architecture, pointillism—creating images through dots.

Working with a busy top like this is quite easy, just pick out a color in the top and wear it as your bottom! just like what I did in my last outfit post or you can go with print on print! Which is a little tricky, one print has to be bold and big and the other fine and small:> So medium sized prints like this are tricky to match unless its not dots your working with? Maybe some huge stripes? Floral? etc…The possibilities are endless now that there’s practically no more rules in fashion!

image

image

image

This outfit reminds me of a Banana split—with sprinkles on top! haha.

Took my new babies out on a spin:>

CMYK Experience

image

CMYK Dessert House opened last month at Archbishop Reyes Avenue, Waterfront Drive, Lahug. It’s such a cute and fun place to be, just hanging out with friends over desserts and drinks:) I love it’s name: CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) like the ones in ink cartridges, this is because one of the owners is a photographer. The other meaning is “Chocolates Make You Kiss”.

image

Treated my CFDA Family to CMYK for my late birthday celebration:) I’m an adopted Fashion Design Student:)

image

Some of the desserts we ordered:) Forgot some of their names:(

image

Deconstructed Mango Cheesecake

image

Spicy Ramen

As they say—foodporn:) That night was like a trip to dessert heaven:) Thank you CMYK, will surely be back!

Visit them!! You won’t regret:)

Red is Love

image

Jeans (August), Top (Next), Shades (Hawaiian Sun), Bag (J - STYLING AND ATTACHÉS)

There was a need to wear white for an event at school, but being my atypical self, I went for my over-used bright red jeans!! I also had a shoot that afternoon (thus the make-up!).

For my accents, I say: Spikes and Aztec is love:) Downtown treasures! <3 

Fashion now-a-days is very moody and people tend to treat clothes as disposable things! I, for one try my best not to wear the same outfits or even pieces too often, with this is mind I think it is very practical to buy cheap, on sale, or even (recently as I’ve mentioned, I tried) thrifting! Such amazing ways to expand your wardrobe. Speaking of which, I am planning to sell some of my stuff (unused or barely used), will update about that soon~ deadlines and events here and there!:/

Thanks Athena Bellotindos of Fashion Institute of the Philippines for my outfit shots!:)

First of all, I wanna say HELLO 2013!!!! 2012 has been awesome, I will be posting some highlights on my next post, but for now, I would just like to emphasize on the thing that most people make on new year—RESOLUTIONS! I, myself made some resolutions before I went to sleep—not about everything though, just a part of my life that I want to change badly. Well, I realized that even though I believe that we should make resolutions all year round for the betterment of ourselves, new years are a good thing to remind us to strive more, to become persons we ourselves, our friends, our parents, and our loved ones can be proud of:)



So write down those realistic resolutions to become the best person you can be and stick them in your mood board, put it in your organizer or keep it in your wallet to make sure it reminds you always:)

HAPPY NEW YEAR and thank so much for reading my little blog, I don’t know if I have avid readers or not but I’m happy enough writing for myself anyways:) Cheers and have a great life ahead!!

A year after my debut

For this year’s—-BIRTHDAY, since I still had a plate deadline on the 17th, I had a  very simple dinner out with family and relatives. We ate at Captain As, Capitol (boodle-boodle ftw!) and went back to making my plates again after:/

image

image

What made me officially 19 years old:)

image

image

On to my outfit: This day was originally planned for swimming at Imperial Palace and an overnight stay at Pacific Cebu, but because of our unfinished plate, we had to reschedule that and had dinner instead.I have been dying to wear this outfit for so long and I finally decided to wear it to the beach, but even though that got cancelled, I did not let it get in the way of me wearing this!:)

image

Pardon my top for bulging out like that, I look like I had a very weirdly shaped sharp tummy! :O

image

image

Cute iTouch Case from Ellzbee:)

image

image

image

What I love most about this outfit is that it is all vintage! I mean, hand me downs from my mom and sister, yet it still looks so now with the maxi and the corset top! Oh how I love the fact that fashion is a cycle:) The bag too is my moms, I love good quality stuff that lasts like forever!

How do you usually spend your birthdays? Hope you had fun the last time you turned up an age:) I didn’t have as much as I hoped but I’ll just celebrate it soon, since it’s Christmas break!! <3

Happy birthday to me <3

Here Starts a 14-day Journey

Have you guys heard of the clothing brand South Shores? People in VisMin, maybe? Well that’s because they have branches all around Visayas and Mindanao and their clothes and accessories are gorgeous! It’s a style source for teens and women; and from their hip accessories and comfy basics, to the most chic hues of tops and unique statement pieces—you are sure to find what you need in their wide array of apparel and accessories!

image

Why I’m sharing this is because I’ve been given the challenge to wear South Shores everyday for 14 days—and since its semestral break, I said “Why Not?” and stepped up for the challenge! I’m not really a for the ‘public’ blogger and I blog to document my college life but I haven’t been blogging a lot this past semester and this challenge is great because it’s going to encourage me to blog since I’ve missed it so much.

image

So, here’s what I wore for Day 1. I was hanging out with my friends and decided to keep it simple yet still classy. You don’t want to be too bongga around your friends especially when you’re goal is to chill and just get together.

image

image

Top, Shorts, Belt, Bangle and Bracelet (All South Shores), Sandals (Own)

I love this top so much because it is so versatile! Here’s 3 ways to wear this top:

image

You can wear it with a belt around your waist area.

image

You can wear it half tucked-in (front).

image

You can wear it tucked-in all the way.

image

Can’t resist posting a personal photo:)

I made it through my first post and I feel great. I’m excited for my outfit tomorrow and I might also make a lookbook account, hmm* :) How am I doing so far?

White and Gold

Another back log. A few months ago we had a spontaneous family pictorial. And since we’ve done red so many times before especially on Birthdays, Christmas and New Years; we went for a classic—White (and Denim, haha—it was late notice and my brother and sister-in-law doesn’t live here). Here’s what I wore:

You can judge by my hair length that this in fact is a long over due post. Sorry! haha.
