IMG_8345dpp_1920_rainplay-eventsOne thing I love most about my events works is the fact that I have to dress up to the occasion. Recently when I and my team at RainPlay Events handled the coordination and hosting of Kyra’s debut, I couldn’t be more excited to know that her theme was inspired by The Great Gatsby. This was what I wore.

L-R: Mel Cruz (hairstylist), yours truly and Cai Guiang (makeup artist).

I opted for white, black and gold color motif for this look. Lacking an art deco accessories? No problem, I re-purposed a necklace to make a headpiece. With just the right angling and some bobby pins — voila! Instant headpiece! I love re-purposing since it widens your options with the minimal arsenal you have.

Special thanks to Steven Yap Haute Couture for my beautiful white dress (which I also wore on one of our engagement shoots).

Credits to my #GlamTeam for the day who dolled me up — Mel Cruz for my hair, Cai Guiang for my makeup and Brian Sahagun for these beautiful documentary photographs.

Songbird

This uberly smooth and flow-y dress made me feel like a songbird frolicking in the wind!

Originally, we were supposed to take couple’s portrait with the theme “fairy and mortal”.  You guessed it right! I would be the fairy and B will be the mortal human being. The theme actually started with the idea of a human being falling for her dream girl. But to cut the story short, B decided to not post our pictures together for public consumption (because he was shirtless!) and left me with my solo photos. Daya! Show Content ofSongbird /Read More

Tranquil Tagaytay

Tagaytay is dear to our hearts in many ways than one. We’ve been here countless times during boyfriend-girlfriend stage, and we even got married here!

It’s like a luxe yet easy escape to go to when you need a quick breather away from the heat of the city.

Last Holy Week we’ve planned to get away even just for a day or two. We thought of other places but ended up deciding to drive here which is relatively close from Manila. Ideally on a fine day, I enjoy the sight of fresh flowers blooming, offering a vibrant sight to behold. Here’s sharing the beautiful blooms that greeted us in this cool climate escape.

Sweet Camisole

I remember the first time I loved the idea of wearing camisole as an outerwear was when I saw Philippine songbird wore one on a Cosmopolitan magazine cover. The idea of  a soft, satin camisole against a structured pencil skirt was very tempting. I’ve had this vintage pencil skirt for quite some time when we unearthed this from my mom-in-law’s basement and I couldn’t find the perfect top to wear with it until I saw this camisole — perfect pastel pink color with a punch of black lace.

This sweet, charming, inviting outfit couldn’t be more appropriate than for darling B’s birthday dinner date.

Although I don’t quite know what to expect from the Sunday Market we will visit, I decided to choose comfort on dressing up. Sleeveless dress, flat sandals and my trusty eye-wear that acts as my invisibility cloak from the eyes of the chaotic crowd.
