See Stripes

Stripes are long narrow strips of the same width and  length in different colours or texture from the surface. Stripes prints always catch my attention every time I go window shopping. I think it looks good on me especially horizontal ones. But some says wearing horizontal stripes will make you look fat. While vertical stripes will make you look thin. I think it depends on how you wear it or paired it with other fabric. In the end it still depends on how you carry yourself well. Since we're talking about stripes, I would like to share with you my new outfit post wearing stripes dress.

 One Saturday night I saw this denim stripes dress with inner tutu skirt. It looks like Korean outfit to me. So, I immediately visualized myself pairing it with a boots. Without thinking twice, I bought it!  *with a BIG smile (=D)* And finally I had my spare time and did my 1st outdoor pictorial.

Floral design makes the outfit girly.

 Denim with tutu skirt rocks!

 I add up silver and rubber accessories to make it look edgy.

Here's my outfit details:

Dress: Thrift Shop
Shoes: Schu at Chimes Sale
Accessories: Black Rubber at Bomo ; Timex watch ; 
Silver bracelet at Tomliz

Thank you to my lovely daughter "Samantha" for those beautiful shoots. 
(Pwede ka na maging photographer anak!)

Next project Grecian Goddess outfit. (^.^)

Do you remember about my birthday wish list posted 10 days before my birthday? For those who missed it you can click this "Birthday Wish List". I'm happy to share with you that out of my five birthday wish list, I got three. Not bad right? Well, I'm excited to share with you what I bought myself  and what I received from special some one as  birthday present. I will not hold you any longer. Here's what I bought for myself:

Pink Blazer from W.A.G.W. 
(addition collection for my corporate outfit)

Here is Hubby's gift: Enovation Tripod
(perfect for my mini studio)

Thank you Babe! <3 
Next time remote shooting naman tapos 50mm na Canon lens or 
studio flash pwede na din. Hehehehe! Love you! =)

And one more thing, the least that I expect to received is the wish list #5 which is the iphone 4s or the BB phone. But God is good! He answered my prayers! After waiting for 3-4 months upgrade plan and availability of the phone. He set it up for my special day. I have my loyalty phone BB! Weeeeeee!  (=D)

Oh! to bad Fashionary is not available at National Book Stores in Davao. Maybe I have to order it online. For 1TB External Drive, I think I still need to save some more and make it as my next project.  

Till next wish list!

Birthday Bash

August is one of my fave month of the year. You know why???  It is because of so many celebrations and happenings during this month. As to birthdays, my brother on the 23rd, sister on the 25th and my kababata (Nyke) on the 19th and there are many to mention pa. And oh! Our most awaited  King of all the Festivals, our Kadayawan sa Davao on Aug 17-19 wherein lots tourists and celebrities are coming here to witness and celebrate this event. Another thing that made this month perfect is our extended week-end due to the end of Ramadan on the 20th, EDSA Celebration on 21st and National Hero's Day on the 27th. AND MOST ESPECIALLY one thing I like most is when I celebrated My Birthday last Aug. 8. As far as I remember, last year I celebrated it wearing birthday hat and a cake eye wear.

2011 Birthday Celebration @ Office (My hair is short!)
 And now I'm at the age where they say "still at the bracket of late twenties", I celebrated it having a theme of "Victorian Party" with my colleagues. 

I also celebrated it with my family at home due to strong rain & heavy traffic last Aug.7, 2012.

Thanks everyone for making my day special. Till next year!

Here's music video by Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen "Good Time"

Pink Leopard


Is there a Pink Leopard? I've checked the net but haven't seen one photo except for textile prints & accessories. The Leopard is a member of a cat family. Their coat has a background color of pale, cream-yellow underside that darkens slightly to an orange-brown on its back. A solid black spots adorn its limbs and head, smaller and denser than the golden, umber-centered rosettes that cover its back and side.

So I guess there's no any Pink Leopard existing at all. But for fashion industry, there is! And it's  perfect for corporate outfits. Allow me to represent my Pink Leopard. I paired it with  black leggings to put more emphasis on the prints. I also put-on one of my fave cover up to look corporate. And of course don't forget the neck accessory to look edgy since Leopard are known to be strong and fearless. 

What do you think of my outfit?
