It was just a typical Saturday morning. I am running out of outfit posts for Lookbook so I did an impromptu picture taking. I used these hat and glasses again to hide my out-of-bed hair and puffy-no-make-up-whatsoever face.
Thankfully, my little nephew was asleep that noon so my mother and I were able to sneak in some shots. Hahaha. The weather was not cooperating though as it started to become cloudy when we got at the back of the house. Good thing, there’s photoshop. Thank you for saving my life.
So.. there. What a lazy no-brainer look. I just got whatever I could get my hands on to complete this. Heehee. I’m not so much in the mood this morning, but there ya go. :D
Sorry for the long hiatus! I’ve been very busy the past few weeks so I kind of neglected this blog already. Here are some long overdue photos that has been rusting in my laptop for quite some time now. Heehee.
Chronic bitchface. Haha. I felt like a pro blogger with this pose. Joke!
I’m excited to get the graded lens for my new eyeglasses. Yep, I’m planning to use it everyday as I really have such a poor eyesight. With Zoey Deschanel’s New Girl peg in my mind, I’m planning on switching to nerd glasses to look “adorkable”.. and hipster-ish, maybe.
My favorite shot- thy shoes’ heels are too high! I want to sell it na because I can’t walk properly in these. My legs are too stick-thin to support it. Haha.
Excuse the herp derp face. Ehem.
Please hype it in Lookbook HERE. I hope you missed me! *kapal face*
Remember the fashion show that I was talking about before? Here are some shots that was taken as part of our “gimmick”.
I love how the photos turned out. Corporate dressing should never be boring!
Here’s another series of photos from way way back. I kind of recycled my other clothes from previous looks. Haha. You can identify each one if you’ve been following my outfit posts. Mix and match all the way!
I would’ve wanted to make a more detailed write-up but I’m quite tired from a photoshoot this morning. It’s for a fashion show in our upcoming Christmas party next week. Thank God, I don’t need to do a talent portion (newbies in our company do that yearly) as I have zero skills in either dancing or singing. Haha. Fashion na lang! Goow!
As I have not yet edited the pictures for this particular look, I’m just gonna leave y’all with this gif. :) I missed Lookbook so much! It’s been ages since I posted so it’s about time to put a look later. So excited!
Aaand, I can’t seem to make the GIF show in my dashboard. It only shows in my blog. Hmm..
I have discovered another place to shoot outfit posts: our unsuspecting kitchen. Ha! The lighting is just right here, especially during the afternoon. The orange wall painting also kind of helped.
As you may notice, there’s a slight difference in the post-processing of some photos. A while ago, to combat the inconsistency, I moved some pics to a big white space and merged everything. It was a nice strategy as there’s more uniformity. However, I had to do a second batch of editing as not everything will fit into the US paper preset.
I started out with my ol’ black hat but it looks “blah”, so I got this faux rose (originally from a hair tie) and stuck it there. Looks better, yes?
I have not used these accessories fro quite some time as I only do minimal accessorizing at work. The YRYS bib necklace quite fascinated me before so I immediately bought it. Now, I think I want to purchase more big necklaces, especially feathered ones. Christmas, plz come quick!
Finally! A polka dot and floral combo. I would love to do more print-on-print outfits next time. Let’s add the orange lips to complete everything. Heehee. Here’s the total look.
You can hype this in Lookbook! Thanks. :)
2nd batch of pictures (in a grassy background!) from my previous post. I look sad here. Emo much? Hahaha. See the older pics and the story behind the look HERE.

It was just hours since I got out of bed this time. My clothes from last week was at the terrace for laundry. Here I am, succumbing to the urge of taking an outfit post. Hurrah.
This is one of my typical outfits for work. I just added my flower hair tie-made into a bracelet to add a little “something”. Also, I used this Dorothy Perkins bag as a color complement.
Got this pink blazer at a tiny little shop somewhere. Hahaha. It seriously needs adjustments to fit my built well. It’s too loose for me but I still continue using it.
This Centropelle shoes are soooo high! Before, I had this fantasy of going to work in 5 inch shoes. Power stillettos to the max! However, reality hit me after 2 slips (one while getting down a jeep and another one at the street). It was so hard and impractical. Hahaha. Flats, I must love you.
Hype my look in Lookbook! :)
Finally, I was able to put up a Lookbook post again! Whew. You may hype it HERE. As I look through these photos, I remember spring time. The grassy and light background plus what I wore gave that feel.
It’s my second time to use this floppy hat in a look. I remember purchasing it for our company outing before. It’s quite a challenge to make the “floppiness” look right as the material used is soft. Anyway, I might use this again once summer beach time arrives again.
Eherm. Please excuse the mud in my pumps. It was a drizzly day when this was shot. While walking through the grass, this sticky stuff stuck to the heels!
I feel like a haciendera with what I’m wearing. Hahahaha. I purchased this oversized blouse by the way because of its prints. Initially, the plan was to use this as a kimono or just hanging loose but Zabs went for this tied-up version.
Tutu skirts are really lovely! Finally, the sheerness was able to be captured in the photo. :)

It’s been a tough week (
weeks?) for my life lately The stress is killing me. Tsk. Good thing there’s blogging, watching tv series, taking pictures and posting stuff to take a bit of it away. I just hope everything will be better soon!
It’s Tumblr Sunday! I’m soo bummed when I got back to my hometown from Manila last Friday when I found out that there’s no internet. Our phone line was cut, probably because of the two typhhos that hit the town. F! Great. The cyberspace is one my refuge from the stresses that I have with my life so it’s such a bummer.
However, the good thing this is that I got to spend more time in editing some outtakes to post on this blog. Yes namaaan! Kinareer! I’m quite happy with the results. This is so far my favorite.
I’ve always been fascinated with walking shots- how candid and striking they are when captured. Good thing I was able to make my dream come true! Hahaha. Here are some of them.
Favorite outfffiiiitt too! So proud of this look. Every ensemble fits seamlessly with each other. The dress is floral
as always with it’s pink and blue combo, the camel-toned blazer has the right structure plus it pairs well with the boater hat, the bag amps up the vintage-traveller feel and the redness of the pumps gave it an extra “wow” factor. Oh, and include the plus-size rings though they weren’t seen very clearly. Heehee.
Maaan, how I wish I can duplicate the color scheme of the pics next time. I’m trying the not-smiling face again. It’s kind of a trial-and-error thing because sometimes, my face doesn’t look right. I think I can pull it off in a certain angle, and that’s when I tilt my face up a little. Hmm.. practice, practice, practice.
The vintage bag is making an appearance again. See how I previously put this together in an outfit post “Sunsets, Snapshots, Haircuts”. Yay. Lucky me, I got to discover this at a thrift shop. Though it’s kind of old, it is waay very sturdy compared to my new bags.
Last pic- the photographer’s take.
