Un Jardin De Fleurs
I soo love this photoset I want to cry. :’) Chos! This is one of my all time favorite layouts that I have posted the first batch of photos (mostly headshots) here.
When Ate Kat showed me the pegs to draw inspiration from, they are mostly Japanese-inspired springy stuff. With that in mind, I went all pa-girl with the whole ensemble! Wooden clogs? Check. Pastel colors? Check. Red bag as a bold accent? Check.
Err, there’s something awkward about me here. I should have just taken off the bag, or put my hands on my waist instead. I’m posting it anyway. Haha.
The title that I came up with is in French, which means “garden of flowers” in English. I just wanted to have a foreign sounding title to make it more sosyal. Heehee.

I would’ve opted for a “Bad Teacher” title, but I felt quite shy. Hihihi. Let me just say that the look resembles corporate dressing but is somehow, inappropriate and over the top. Hence, let’s use this for LB purposes only. Take my blazer and shoes as an example- red and green, okay. Christmas lang ang peg? *troll face*
Obviously, my green blazer is too large! I find it hard to find good fitting blazers for the office dressing. My last purchases were just strokes of luck.
I wanted to play around with quirky stuff so I incorporated a striking bib necklace from YRYS. My gold Tomato pouch is making a comeback again for a little “bling bling”.
This Details skirt is one of my favorites/staples in the closet. It can be used for formal occasions minus being boring! Thank you to the kurtina effect (chos!) also for the added bulk to my frame.
Before I end this post, let’s put on a smiley face here. :)
How’s you weekend? Mine’s lazy-lazy. I hope this post made some sense as I just typed this mindlessly. Hahahaha.
This is the 3rd set from my shoot with Ate Kat. For the consistency of our “spring theme”, I pulled out this floral print (as always) shirt from the closet. I made last minute tweaks on it by sewing the neckline to make it lower. and more flattering.
Hmm.. This time, let’s not put a hat on. Hahaha. I preferred a simpler look here and just accesorized my shorts with a belt. Lazy lazy lazy. This is something that I can wear on a regular day.
My sky high clogs! Finally, I was able to manage walking on it better. As it’s hard to resell it, might as well just use these babies on shoots. Besides, it’s too pretty to let go.
I’m quite annoyed with my hand habits and the fact that I rarely smile in the photos. Rarr! It’s okay, I’ll just note that out for modifications next time. Hehehe.
Overall, I think this set is also nice! I still have a few more unpublished ones so I’ll just put them out next time (so I have more stuff to blog about!). I hope the spring-y fresh concept translated on your point of view. :)
One with the Wild x Sugarlips
I was soo ecstatic when I received this dress from Sugarlips Apparel! It’s a fashion brand of ready-to-wear clothes based in downtown Los Angeles, California. Check out the website for their awesome collection!
Thank you for finding my blog, by the way. Heehee. As I have no decent camera to give justice in styling presentations, our shoot last Sunday was a perfect timing! <3
I have been in search of animal print clothes for the longest time already. It adds fierceness/exotic appeal to one’s look, in my opinion. Next time, I’ll try to incorporate more of it in my closet.
Here’s a closer look to the details of the dress. It’s so sheer and lightweight- perfect for the sunny weather!
It also has ribbon details behind. Err, the dress is quite large for me so the back part is quite lower than the usual. :)
..and to complete the feel, let’s also do a “fierce” face. Hahaha.

On another note, I made it to Chictopia’s top looks today! Yaay! *pardon the over enthusiasm, it’s a big deal for me* I have neglected my account there already so the rush of votes was a cool surprise. Thank you so much. It made my day. :)

Spring Break: Shoot with Kat Santos
Remember the “exciting” stuff that I said last time? Well, here it is! Last Sunday, I had a shoot with Ate Kat, a high school friend of my UP mate/soro sister Ate Api. She is into taking photos and doing post-processing as a hobby.
The theme that she wanted was “spring with a lot of pastels”. Well, being a vain girl, I was pretty ecstatic to become her subject! We shot about 4 sets this afternoon. These batch of pics are just a few samples, actually.
Ate Kat is into florals and the feeling is mutual. Haha. I have always wanted to incorporate a flowery background into my pics for its pretty effect. Most of my clothes are sporting that print too.
I must say that I’m pleased with how the pictures turned out. She’s just starting out but her aesthetics in photo composition is already impressive! <3
Admittedly, I’m picky and judgmental (Arte ko. Haha.) regarding this factor. For example, I usually prefer being the one to do the editing of my personally taken lookbook posts (a.k.a. those taken by a family member using the trusty digicam). I’m not satisfied until I get best composition through cropping/retouching and you know, the works.
Well, for the output that she came up with, everything was really shot beautifully! I was stunned, no complaints at all. :) In the long run, I think that she can definitely go places in the world of photography.
