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.
