Blossom

Floral headwrap? Floral necklace? Floral skirt? Floral ring? Am I puking rainbows or what? Haha. 

This too floral of an outfit? Yeah, I can wear this. Heck, I can pull this off. But then I have to prepare myself for comments and teases from friends. Someone put this girl in a vase. No, I’m kidding. I think people are used to me and I am used to people. And I’m not even the kind who wears really attention- grabbing clothes. I am just a girl who is being… too girly.

With my already too-cute-for-words outfit, how do I go around wearing this? Tip #1: NEVER SMILE – at least for pictures. Haha. As everything else, attitude must be balanced. Say hello to the fifth member of the mean girls!

Remember what I told you about my interest in button- downs with shoulder cut-outs? This is my other one in super light pink from Jelly Bean. I love it to bits!I bought this envelope clutch in a night market in Hong Kong. The skirt? Pffft, cheap buy from atiangge. The necklace was a bargain from SuperSale Bazaar (I bought it from Camille Co. HIHI). The thing about me is that, I’m a certified cheapskate.How else can I better emphasize my floral theme than by adding doilies clipart, free for download from puglypixel.com! Aside from my love for dressing up and posing for pictures, I equally enjoy editing photos. I overdid it this time, didn’t I? I don’t know, I just got sooo inspired by cool graphics and design blogs lately. Since unlike other fashion bloggers I only have my white wall, I think it’s up to me to make things interesting. So yeah, I’ve decided to make this blog my online scrapbook. And I hope I’ll get to improve my photos too as I go on – ’cause most of the times old photos just make me cringe. Taste level improves, I think. As of the moment, this set is my favorite of the bunch. Hope I won’t cringe at the sight of this next week! Haha.

By the way, TIP #2: HYPE THIS LOOK ON LOOKBOOK!

Parallelism

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 – perfectI 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! 🙂


Design- Inspired

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. 🙂

Izzo Shop

I must work on my blogging schedule, I really do. It sucks to fall on a wake up – go to work – go home – sleep routine that days are becoming a blur. Oh my, four more months left for 2012! Happy September, everyone! I hope it will be a good month. 🙂 Maybe the start of a difference for me? Must think positive.

I have a long line of blog entries to produce – in a regular interval, I hope! Let’s start with this. How about an outfit.. and then some?

Outfit of the day is a typical combination of a red top and a black skirt. You may have seen it countless of times already, on somebody else.

To give a (little bit of a) fresh take on it, my top is in polka dots, my skirt has asymmetrical details, I have a red bow on my head.. and a moustache! Haha. I will go cutie patootie on you in this set of pictures, please don’t puke!Doesn’t look so much of a camera bag, does it? Exactly what I want! It is a simple, scarlet bag with a padded inside and adjustable dividers perfect to keep my baby safe without screaming, “Hey, I have a camera inside!” too much. The best thing about it? I got it for almost free!! How?Izzo Shop, the best camera bags and accessories shop online, had a promo last August. I bought two bags for less than a thousand bucks! Don’t fret, they still have a promo this start of September, check their facebook site for details!

There is more. The reason why I learned about Izzoshop was through the blog of my friend, Carla. She was holding a giveaway then, and even though I wasn’t so lucky with the whole lottery-ish kind of thing, I joined. Nothing to lose and so much to gain if luckily chosen, right? Reason why I patiently join giveaways even if I never win – UNTIL NOW. Yes, this lovely Anne Work Tote landed in my hands. Thank you so much Carla! Keep blogging and keep holding amazing giveaways!

And guys with cameras and laptops to keep and carry, be sure to check out Izzo Shop. They have new items I have been lusting over for weeks now. You may like them too. 🙂

Basics

I love outdoor photos!

How can I not? I can sit on the grass and look anywhere but the camera and boom, great picture. Not because of my prowess in modeling, if I possess such a thing, but the credit mainly goes to the sun for illuminating my skin in all the right places and to the trees for swaying in the background with a grace that beats mine. Of course, the skills of the photographer is a given, also the amount of difference post processing can give. But you get me, don’t you?

Removing my precious sun and nature backdrop, how can I survive? Haha. I have always been intimidated with studio photo shoots. No yellows, greens and blues for distraction, I am on my own. But, I am always up for the challenge and the challenge includes dressing up in simple pants and white shirt. Nothing fancy, as photographer Paolo Tulalian requested.

I had a fun shoot with friends Pao and Daryl at Camera Cart, Maginhawa last August 25. Behind the scene photos are already up, you can read more about our first studio shoot here.

Final photos, you say? The first few ones below are from Daryl, on my take of the basic jeans and top combo. I opted for a button- down with cut- out details on the shoulders. I have been seeing such a style for a long time now, finally I got my hands on my own. And because I like it so much, I instantly got it in two different colors. I can’t wait to show you how else I am planning to style it, there are countless of ways!

Again, photography by Daryl Refuerzo. More photos NEXT! 🙂


Knitted + Printed

I’ve been mentioning repeatedly how crazy the weather here in the city is. It has been raining all day and signs of stopping are nonexistent. It will continue for days, according to the news. Oh please, don’t let this be an Ondoy Repeat.

I don’t know if this is the right time to post these pictures but since work was officially called off for today (yeah, the condition is that bad), I’m taking this time to work on the blog and publish posts I never got around to publishing.

_______________________

I have been craving for coziness ever since the rainy season has begun. I don’t know why but I seem to get comfort from anything knitted. To make things interesting, I paired knits with prints.
