If there is one thing that I am truly proud about myself, it is me being a dreamer and making my dream a reality. I was not born with a golden spoon in my mouth, but my mom taught me the power of perseverance, that anything can happen if you believe in yourself.

 

Back in the days, I was a shy girl, I can easily blend in the crowd without you noticing me. I am a girl without a name, always hidden on a plain sight. I never believed in myself. The only person who believed in me is my own mother, she would always encourage me to go to the stage, perform and excel academically. I never do that back in high school and college. I never fully realized the power of my dreams until after college. I pity my old self for being lame, but now I know that my old self is already proud of what I have become. I am a perfect example of a late bloomer.

Weaving a dream is not easy. It takes a lot of motivation and will power. No one can convince you of the things you are capable of doing than yourself. Your confidence, guts and ability will take you far. I am not talking about blogging specifically but my dreams and aspirations in general.

 

My transformation did not happen overnight. There are people who become instrument for me to fully realize my capabilities. These are the people I met along the way. They shaped me and molded me.

 

Let me quote Harriet Tubman when she said; “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. To all my readers, wake up and make your dreams a reality.

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.

Don’t be deceived by the title, I don’t have an hourglass figure as you can see, but I did try if bodycon would look good on me. Well, it doesn’t look bad and it doesn’t look that good either. On my previous posts, I always avoid bodycon dresses due to body issues. I don’t like exercising, I don’t go to gym and it is the least that I would really want to do, thus, the reason why I don’t have the Solenn Heussaff body. Right now, I am already back to being super skinny. I was a bit bulkier when I was in Philippines because I have a very sedentary lifestyle there, while here, everyday even if I don’t go to gym is like a work out.

 

Skimpy little black bodycon is a bit too revealing for me so I try to hide a bit of skin by wearing a stockings. Girls who are a bit conservative when it comes to dressing like me (cough**cough**) should try wearing stocking to shake off uneasy feelings. Flats and high heels would look good with this outfit, so choose whatever is comfortable for you and you are good to go.
