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!
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.”
I had the privilege to spend five days abroad with my best-est girlfriends in college and I had the best time ever! We arrived home a couple of nights ago and while I am so eager to share with you our experiences, allow me to fast forward to this day in Macau. Knowing we were going to explore different hotels, I dressed up a little bit. I wore this top with a sexy see-through back detail and paired it with high-waist shorts in the same color. I styled the ensemble with an extra cute feather necklace also in soft pink, a ring with a color that pops, black flats for comfort and a zebra- printed bag that complements everything. What do you think?
I had something else that completed the whole look though.Pocket mirror? Make-up foundation? Or maybe, just maybe…. a mobile phone.It is ALCATEL ONE TOUCH GLAM 810D – an innovation that combines style with function.
I never thought I can include mobile phones in the fashion accessories category but this one is so chic I almost wanted to wear it around my neck or put it inside a transparent bag – and I’m just sure it won’t catch the attention of bad guys around, if you know what I mean. 😛Aside from the pretty over-all look, the phone sparkles in the front when I receive text messages or calls because of its tiny luminescent diodes. The said LED matrix can be customized and it even shows the time which is a super plus for me since I don’t wear watches really often.When opened, it reveals a QWERTY keyboard with a Facebook button that can make social networking more convenient. The phone also lets me take pictures and videos with its 2MP camera. What else can we girls ask for? Oh, it’s a dual sim phone.The best is yet to come — this mobile phone is extremely affordable with a price tag of only 3,599.00php! Aside from this color, it is also available in white so your options are Mystery Pink and Light Chrome.I don’t want to play the part of a cheesy sales agent but I can’t help but say, “What are you waiting for? Avail of this amazing phone at Alcatel One Touch kiosks and cellphone stores nationwide NOW!”. To know more, visit the Alcatel One Touch Facebook page.
Stay tuned for my complete HongKong-Macau photo diary posts.
