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.

Smiling on Sunshine
Here are some more photos from Estrellas de Mendoza in Batangas. The place looks perfect, right? Hmm.. might as well take the advantage of having more summery photos! Hype this on Lookbook HERE.
It was the second day of our stay at the resort. After breakfast, I, together with my friends Raissa and Icay decided to go to the beachside. Here’s the proof. Haha!
It was so hot because it’s almost noon and the sun kind of hurts my eyes here. Rawr!
Now, I’m with Icay. Hihi. I like this shot!
After this, we went back to the pool area (see the photo above). We wanted to have more photos by the infinity pool. Maybe I’ll post those once I feel like it. Hahaha. For the meantime, here you go.
Yeah, and here’s my accidentally closed-eyes self for your viewing pleasure.

I hope you all have a nice summer experience as well! :)

Young and Full of Running
Print on print mixing- I’m so all over it again. It’s really fun experimenting with putting together of clashing designs. This time, I decided to wear floral with butterfly prints. <3
I would like to share with you this recent purchase that I had from Tomato- a reversible gold/silver pouch! So cool, right? I’m a fan of things that can multitask and this baby fits the bill. You can turn it into the color of your choice (for me, it’s gold) and it is pretty enough to tote around outside or hold some stuff inside your bag.
It’s been a while since I used this Parisian boots. I don’t know where to use it so, might just well put them on during shoots. I like how the sun’s lighting is as cooperative as ever. :)
Lakas maka-Miley Cyrus! Hahahaha. Oh, the perks of youth- being able to pull off almost everything. I’m really glad that each ensemble was able to complement each other.

How about you, are you comfortable in wearing a print-on-print outfit?
The Oriental Summer
I must say that this is one of my favorite shoots. The backdrop and lighting + the shadowy effect are perfectly complementing the whole concept.
It was reaaaally scorching hot that afternoon. I had to struggle in keeping a straight face. :l However, a lighting this nice is too good to pass up. Maan, it burns.
With my tied-up bun hair and the kimono, I felt very Asian. Add the punch of red in the short and I’m good to go- simple yet still has that certain kind of “impact”.
I can’t take the heat anymore so I had to look down already. Hahaha.
Please please hype my look HERE. Thanks loves! :)
Mixing Prints + Surprise MTV Feature
Backlog time! Haha. I was not really intending to post this set of pics before. The weather when this was shot was quite gloomy, and only a few photos looked decent. However, what a pleasant surprise- while Googling stuff, I saw my look featured at MTV’s website. Yaay! :D
Anyway, here’s the other version of my supposed Lookbook collage.
Thanks again for the feature! It feels good that my style is appreciated by you guys.

Patchworks and Ribbons
Hmm. I must admit, the background is quite loser-ish. Hahaha. Anyway, I don’t care- challenge accepted. >:)
The skirt is really a little big for my frame. I just made some adjustments by making it into a high-waisted one. Thank god for the ribbon design, it was able to hold the skirt in place.
I have some fond memories that can be associated with this denim patchwork bag. This was the bag that I was using during my freshman year in college. It was one of the awkward/interesting/new phases of my life.
To take a break from my usual nerd glasses or boater hat combos, I decided to go with a headpiece instead. It makes the look dressy, but still with a little formality and polish (minus the bag).
To hype this in lookbook, go to my previous post. Good night! :)
