Cyber Garage Sale!

I'm currently holding a cyber garage sale for all of you Filipino fashionistas out there. Most items came directly from my closet, all of it are either never used, worn once or twice. Another good thing about it is that they're all under PhP500 pesos - even the shoes!

Here are some of my favorite items.

Cropped lace top

Mustard bodycon skirt

Denim cut-offs

Draped dress with rose embelishments

The details

Charlotte Russe cuffed booties with quilted detail.

So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and click this to view the album. ;)

Sometimes I just feel a little bit brain-drained and a tad out of place. And it scares me how much I feel empty right now even though I'm not supposed to.

Of Fogs and Bomber Jackets

I just got home a few hours ago from Baguio - the summer capital of the Philippines. And I must say that the weather was perfect! I couldn't remember the last time I was there and now the experience is ten times better. First and foremost, my mom didn't go because of prior appointments she's made (not that it's a good thing but I later on worked with its advantages), therefore it was just me and the Espinas who are like my second family.

Baguio isn't only the summer capital - but it's also one of the best places to shop at. Although I didn't really get to buy much because of the limited time we were given during the afternoons (we always had some sort of event to attend to during the evening), I still managed to grab a couple of fabulous items. Here are my new prized possessions.

Scratching off black platform pumps. But I really need one with higher platforms - they're less painful.

"Balenciaga" Harness boots. Say what?

These two are my new babies; additions to my growing shoe collection. Chos. Anyway, Baguio was fun! As for outfit photos, I got a few up my sleeve.

Day TWO:

Dress: thrifted, Blue skinny belt, Cardigan: Red Herring, Tights: Forever 21, Sneakers: Keds

Boom box, snake, and camera rings. Plus David's gray fingerless gloves.

Day THREE: Dimalupig formal dinner

Tiered dress: Thrifted, Boyfriend blazer: Topman (David's), Tights, Black Pumps

So that was it. Can't wait to use my harness boots!

Cirq Regal: The Runway Spectacle

It was yet again that time of the year where the junior students of the UST College of Fine Arts and Design majoring in Advertising Arts have their annual fashion show (the last of it's kind I must say) entitled Cirq Regal: The Runway Spectacle. The sub-themes being: Mimes, Dolls, Freaks, Wilds, Illusionists, Acrobats, Clowns and Pyros.. respectively. My block's theme was Pyros: House of Crimson Lustre - the finale. And yes, I was part of the production - helping out my designer friends, styling their models, I had fun.

Here are some photos from the event grabbed from my lovely blockmates who had cameras with them.

The Mimes

The Dolls

The Freaks

The Wilds

The Illusionists

The Acrobats

The Clowns

The Fire Breathers / Pyros.

So there you go.. the fashion show. I must say it was rather amazing. The designs were breath-taking.

As for the behind the scene photos, I got one.. just one.

That's us - team Crimson Lustre. :)
