Good morning! ☼

What hair and shoes can do.
Here’s what I do whenever my work requires me to attend meetings and do legwork afterwards. I might have the capacity to wear heels all day long, but I admit wearing flats feels like home!
Tip: Keep you face neat, it will make you look fresh all day long. Plus who knows the perks you can get flaunting your pretty face? ;)
Hype my look (most of the day) today here.

Here’s my list of daily essentials. ♕
[cropped top from Apartment 8 Clothing; skirt from Topshop; wedges from Pedro]
[top from Forever21; necklace from Aldo; rings from H&M; midi skirt from Apartment8 Clothing; shoes from e•pse]
I still can’t get over full circle skirts! And I am happy to always satisfy my addiction to it through Apartment 8. I can no longer identify if it is a blessing or not to work nearby The Ramp at Glorietta, still the bottom line is my closet’s never been happier!
I can’t wait to give it another visit next week, and purchase all the colors that’ll attract me! Whoot!

Permission to talk about some of the styles I go by? Here’s a list inspired from my most recent hypes at lookbook.nu:
That type of look “I just grabbed whatever in my
or someone else’s closet”, yet it looks well put-up. Oversized tops and blazers are definitely my go-tos whenever my day will require tons of field work, or whenever I get random meet-ups ‘round my busy neighborhood from friends. That’s prioritizing comfort without compromising style.
[looks from Maha of Germany & Yuzi of California]
Definitely in search for this! It can give anyone’s look that “crisp” needs. This is perfect to cover ones too casual look and still give you that boost of confidence for emergency meetings.

Adding a color or a print from your all-black outfit can make the world a happier place! Lol. Kidding aside, it bends the mood black emanates and shows off the playful & more accommodating side of yourself too!
[looks from Astrid of Austria & Anastasia of Paris]
Ah, as someone who has background in ballet tutus and ballerina flats never fails to catch my sight! Puffy skirts are flirty, fun, yet adds poise to wear. On full-length skirts, it gives that fluid flow you can actually feel yourself making glissades while crossing the street. — Skirts as such definitely lacks my wardrobe! Gah!

Hope I was able to inspire you plan your outfit, if not for tomorrow hopefully the day after that!

Dressing up for holidays is one of my favorite things to do! For our New Year’s Eve dinner, I decided to go with a black, white and gold palette.
I’m avoiding to be too dressy so it’ll be effortless going back and forth from our table to Spiral’s endless buffet table. Yes, dressing up strategically is important! Especially if I will be eating that’s equivalent to a whole year supply! /kidding!
It wouldn’t hurt to wear something loose for a top (to give way for my bulging tummy after pigging out), paired it with shorts and heels to flaunt my legs.
What I especially love about my skort from Stradivarius is its intricate print and detail, making my look festive and classy. With this pair, it made me not wear too much accessories. All I had to add is a beautiful neckpiece from Aldo with my plain Mango top, and sealing everything with a classic Chanel bag.
Classy, simple, festive and chic!
This is my final look post, may my efforts posting here all throughout 2013, sensible or not helped even a single soul to dress a little bit better, or inspired you even a single day to decide on what you should wear.
Oh, and did you like my new hair color? ;)
Hype this look here.
Happy Holidays and a Blessed New Year to everyone! Cheers!
Patting myself for updating my look and lookbook account all throughout the year!
May my style evolve, matured and may I be braver making changes with my hair.
Cheers to more transformations, clothes and more clothes in 2014!
Dressing a little better wont hurt!
First project for the year!
Did a lookbook shoot for Glamour. I must say this was the quickest 10-layout shoot in history! Looking forward working with them again!
Kicking off my marketing responsibilities with Piaf.
This sums up my pre-production work, well the pretty/happy parts.
[l-r: going home too late for anyone’s imagination, dressing up for press cons, trying to be healthy while stress eating, radio ad recordings; emergency coffee from Lawyn, boredom while stuck in traffic and ootd, flowers for opening night; caught up with Markki, waiting game for cast party, the glorious set and with Giselle at the cast party]
With our mom at work, Ms. Liza Camus, Claire and Karen; taken at the opening night of Piaf.
I had to wrap every task as early as possible cause I filed a leave because of….
My first and second travel for the year happened on this month!
I was being sneaky when I took this photo as we open our 2nd production for the year, The Full Monty.
That’s the cast with their director praying before opening the house.
This was the start when my life revolved nothing else but work. — You’ll see what I mean.
Yet opening Disney’s Tarzan the moment we closed our previous show. This is one of the photos I took during one the technical runs at Meralco Theater.
Highlight: Handled press cons, mall shows, and endless list of guests!!!
Cause we know we are super heroes, so we opened yet another show as soon as Tarzan closed. Rock of Ages: The Repeat Run
One of my career highlights from 2012. This was and still the production with sold out tickets!
Highlight: My shots from tech run got published on broadsheets! Totally happy not giving up on my photography skills, bit rusty, but still working!
Highlight: While doing pre-production work for September, me and my college friends was able to squeeze in a photoshoot. Above is the most decent group shot we got.
Meet Lawrence Cohen, the book and screenwriter of Carrie; oh and behind him is my boss and director Bobby Garcia.
The men behind and on stage of Carrie. Not too sure if you spot me here :p
Highlight: We have gone through hell and heaven with this show. This is the most challenging part of my career to date, but completely rewarding and worth it! Another highlight is to personally meet and be friends with Larry, such a humble, sweet person! His short stay in Manila will forever be cherished.
PS: I still can’t wrap my head who I meet with my job!!!!!
During in mid-produciton of Carrie, I was able to nod my head to my buddy Kars and Pearl for a lookbook shoot featuring Love Army’s 5-Panel Caps Fiore and Copperhead.
Always a pleasure having my favorite photographer around! ;D
Then the randomness in me and a couple of friends kicked in. To Bangkok we went as soon as I closed Carrie! Photos above pretty much summarize how our quick yet fun off country adventure was!
Highlight: Everything! This was my first off country trip without parental guidance.
“You can’t control the past, but you can control where you go next.”
Highlight: That random roadtrip to Tagaytay with my favorite crew!
Ah, my birthday month! It was this month me and my college clique got clingier with each other.
Photo above was Kars and Sam’s random visit at my flat with all the happy food and balloons (only one seen here) and greeted me a Happy Birthday, and it happened 3 days earlier to the actual date. /crazybaboons
Visited Love Army’s booth at Rockwell tent after one of the Sunday shows of The Addams Family.
I told you, “clingier.”
The cast and crew of The Addams Family! Whoa.. I mentioned 6 shows already?! Well my 2013 was that fast.
Highlight: First time to have PRs published on broadsheets! Now, there’s the writer in me!
And that’s us still intact on the Eve of X’mas Eve, not getting over each others faces.
Now that wraps up:
That’s one busy and blessed year for me. Will be posting about my holidays… soon? As of now I must prep for our NYE’s dinner. Happy Holidays kids!!!
