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

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.

Game of Thrones Season 6 has ended and looks like the Khaleesi/Dragon Queen is finally conquering the seven kingdoms. This blog is my tribute to Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains,
Mother of Dragons and Protector of the Realm. That’s a lot for an introduction!

 

As an avid fan, I collaborated with my favorite Photographer, Cheny Santizas for for this Khaleesi-inspired shoot since Cheny is someone I can be very comfortable with when taking my fashion shots. I chose a less provocative clothing design (no cleavage of course) and I had my hair braided in Waterfalls by Cheny. She is not just my Photographer but also my hair stylist.

 

This flowy white dress depicts Khaleesi’s fashion in season 5. I chose brown flat sandals because Khaleesi don’t wear high heels and added this white floral hair clip for a touch of my own style. This sheer with cotton underlining dress made me comfortable for the duration of this photoshoot under the scorching heat. Good thing that as a Khaleesi, I am also an unburnt. Lol. Something Game of Thrones fanatics can only relate.
