Dang, didn’t even say goodbye to September. Sorry for my two week blogging hiatus. When time speeds away from you, you’ll find it hard to keep up. I just want to maximize everything I’ve got, you know. Oh now I sound like a dying woman. *knocks on wood*.
Anyhoo, I missed shooting and editing outfit photos so here’s what I’ve got for you. Hi readers! You there? I hope so.
This is inspired by The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Okay, not really. Not because of the story (read the book, haven’t watched the movie)… but because of word “wallflower”. Pffft. Too shallow, never mind I mentioned. Haha.To those who are curious as to how I take my outfit photos, I use a tripod and a camera on self- timer mode (I don’t even have a remote yet) so basically it’s a one-woman team. But I find it fun that way. I have a white wall in my room which becomes my empty canvas in pictures where I can edit in whatever I want to make the photo interesting – for instance, my floral wallpaper.
Hope you can HYPE THIS ON LOOKBOOK!
Are you not tired of my face yet? Yes? Good! I have a couple more vain pictures that I hope you still have the patience to look at. I know, I know, you guys can only take in so much. I’m cooking up new interiors so I think we can already turn the tables around next time. Time for more Architecture!These photos are from Pao, on his take on low- key photography. The high key version of these can be found here. Which is hotter? Haha.
I haven’t been everywhere. In fact, I haven’t been anywhere. I flew out of the country once, just a few months ago, and it was one of the best experiences I had. The trip made me realize how little I have experienced life and how much I am suffocating myself inside my own tiny bubble. Sigh. Traveling is one of the luxuries I wish I can afford more in the future – one that I will certainly work hard for.
“No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”
My insights about traveling (or my lack thereof) were brought about by the self- portraits I recently took. My overly-eager-in-post-processing self even took the extra mile to make the photos in line with this post’s themeThe outfit reminds me of a gypsy, a lost wanderer, a brave soul – someone who would not think twice of going to new places, someone with a desire to explore the world, someone I would want to be like, in some extent.
The top is the exact same one I wore previously. This is an attempt to show you how mixing and matching can create two different looks with the exact opposite vibe. In fact, everything I have here has already appeared in past posts. Can you pinpoint which ones? 🙂
“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”
In Architecture, horizontal and vertical elements are oftentimes combined to make the over-all aesthetic balanced. Well, do you know how many times parallelism between Architecture and Fashion has been explored? Innumerable.The
architect fashion enthusiast in me says I need to play around with patterns since I am clearly lacking prints. Hmm let’s see, I’ve got a top with horizontal ruffles and a skirt with vertical pleats – perfect. I wore simple gold earrings and a necklace with playful colors and prints to add interest. However, more than anything, I think the beach waves helped put together this look (especially the wind effect, hahaha). So guys I think that’s about it. Now pop quiz.
(1) Do you find the mix of horizontal and vertical details in clothes pleasing? (2) In fashion, do you believe in less is more? (3) And more importantly, what do you think about this look? Teehee.
Kidding aside, if you liked my top and necklace, you can get the said items online. Where? Visit Fashion Infinity on Facebook!
I’ve got plenty of new stuff from Fashion Infinity and you may just catch them making an appearance in future outfit posts.To Rhona Dia, thank you so much. I can’t stress enough how flattered I get when I receive gifts like these. THANK YOU! 🙂
Do you remember the vintage-y interior I did a month back? No? You know, this one:Sadly, I have not done something new since then. I would love to design more and practice on my Vray while I’m on it but.. well, no excuses, I will just do it – SOON! 🙂
So the reason why I’m writing about it again is this:If I were to wear something (of course, I should wear something) while I’m lounging on that couch, this would be it. I think a laid back outfit in neutral colors will go well with it. If you know me, I am crazy over everything matchy- matchy BUT I would not want to totally camouflage by wearing something with almost the same print as the couch, and whatnot. I got inspiration from the colors and textures instead and I worked my way around those.I love the romantic feel brought by the laces on my shorts and scarf too, do you?Finally, even though I overdid the messiness of the bun, I think such a hairdo is the most appropriate.
My face in here says, “Soo, what do you think?” 🙂
P.S. Do you like this Architecture meets Fashion kind of post? Well I do! I hope to do this regularly. 🙂
P.P.S. HYPE THIS LOOK ON LOOKBOOK!
