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 have been gone for too long. There is never a day that I don’t think about blogging, it’s not that I am going to abandon my first love altogether, but I have been having a tough time adjusting here and squeezing in blogging time is too difficult specially when what I want to blog is the sunny, breezy and bright Philippines and here I am in the other side of the world freezing and wrapped up.

 

Home sickness is sinking in and idea of me not being able to wear my dresses depresses me a lot. I mean, I live and breath fashion right? My life has changed 90 degrees since I arrived. I left my old self in the Philippines and the person living in Canada now is totally a different person. I am still learning the way of life here and I am doing my best to integrate myself. What I am thankful about is that living in Quebec is a really nice way for me to feel belongingness. I’ve talk to a lot of people and 70% of the people I met are not from Canada, so it doesn’t feel like I am an alien at all. The biggest challenge for me is the weather and clothes of course.

 

Okay, I know I talk too much so let me tell you about my last entry in the beautiful island of Boracay. I am a pastel girl, I love everything feminine and cute. I love playful cut outs and unique details and accessories is totally a must. On our last day we went out for a fancy lunch in Cristina’s at Crown Regency. I decided to put on nice summer dress suitable enough for a good lunch by the beach. Hat is a necessity for sun protection and I always go for the cute ones and something that I can use to for my other outfits. Versatile pieces are important so you do not have to have a lot of accessories, you can mix and match to reinvent new style.

Soo long hiatus!! I know right? My move to Canada was really stressful but at the same time satisfying. Even the week before my move, I was already under pressure. That was also the time I went out to see my family and friends to celebrate despedida and just to go out one last time before I leave. Fast forward Aug. 30, my flight date and Aug 31, my arrival in Canada (after more than 24 hours of travel time), I was welcomed by a chilly weather. I was quite surprised because it’s still summer, so it is not supposed to be cold. But the cold weather didn’t last for long. We are now back to more than 25 degree to 30 weather and I get to woke up at night sweating and thirsty. I am honestly reluctant to buy electric fan because in few weeks autumn will start then summer, and by that time, will surely not need electric fan.

 

Too much for that, I will save some of my chika once I start blogging about what to see here in Montreal, which I plan to do for the next few months. I just need more time to post my Philippine photos with my travel and also fashion blog.

 

For today, let me show you this pending photos from my Boracay trip. This is probably what I will miss about Philippines, it’s like summer everyday. I opted to wear a haltered animal printed dress that I bought from H&M. Not an ideal beach wear but it it will become ideal if you pair it with beach accessories like this palm tree shades that I got from Forever 21 and an oversized hat.

 

That’s it for today! Stay tuned for another Bikini blog next time.
