Another photoshoot session with my darling friend, Cheny Santizas at The Henry Hotel in Cebu. We’ve had this planned for a long time because I love the hotel’s vintage interior. I was a bit reluctant at first because I like an outdoor photohoot with natural light than indoor with light reflectors, but of course photographers can always work their magic by playing with the ISO, aperture and shutter speed which until now I find a bit technical even if I am slowly learning it myself. I know how to set ISO and aperture, but I don’t have the patience to change it when room lighting changes so I prefer everything to be outdoor and set my camera on auto mode. Lol.

Talking about my outfit, I decided for a lace on lace because pourquoi pas? Denim on denim is not a fashion crime and so is lace on lace. Culottes is an ideal summer wear which is what I am really obsessing next to floral dresses because I love the comfort it gives me. Fashion evolution is taking me by surprise lately, who would have thought, Culottes which is an 18th century fashion that started as men’s breeches become a mainstream fashion staple for women’s of 21st century. Plus there is no shoe requirement when wearing Culottes. Depends on the occasion, it can be paired with flats, rubber shoes, high heels, wedges or whatever you think would be ideal. It is the most versatile piece ever girl must have in their wardrobe. For this outfit, I wear it with pumps because lace embodies formality. Finally, rule of fashion, wear a black underwear beneath a see through top, but should it be a white top? Answer is no, take it from me. *wink

P.S. Cheny did not use reflector. She just used a DSLR and pure talent.

Audrey Hepburn is my fashion icon. I’ve watched all her movies that was digitally enhanced and I was blown away by how sophisticated she was. She is an epitome of classic fashion with so much finesse and elegance. Who doesn’t know about her most popular movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s? No one right? If you don’t know then probably you have been hiding in a cave. That’s a joke, but seriously all fashionista that has the same taste as mine have her as their fashion icon just because she is Audrey Hepburn.

 

A lot of people have tried to copy this look and I am one of those people who tried so hard to be her other version. Lucky enough I have a very supportive friend photographer who is willing to make my dream a reality, and that’s none other than Cheny Santizas. We arranged to have our photo shoot at The Henry Hotel, a boutique hotel in Cebu with classic hipster theme that would be very suitable for this look.

 

I decided to be minimal when it comes to my dress length, and my necklace is just one layer that I made for this shoot the day before. Though, I did try to find an elbow length gloves without success, I was able to find a cute tiara from Broadway.

Hello, I’m back! Hopefully this will be for good because I also can’t believe I’ve been away for the good 4 months of my life in the blogging world. Well, ever since I arrived here in Canada my post become less frequent. I’ve had the worst home sickness of my life and when winter time arrived I got a bit depressed because all I see is white and wearing heavy garment is weighing me down. No worries, it is not something that can call for medical attention.

 

So here is something I have in celebration of my come back. This was in the Philippines on my last few days, we visited this place in 32 Sanson in Cebu for a coffee and we heard the place is very shabby chic. True enough Marisse Patisserie is very much well designed, the place is just perfect for people who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city traffic and pollution.

 

To match myself with the forest like ambience, I wore this cute floral top with my equally cute green skirt that is not just ideal for a coffee date but also an office wear. I kept my hair in a really nice pony tail to make me look polished.
